This research will begin with the summary of the observed article. The US army has been trained by North Carolina’s Fort Bragg for six decades. However, in 1990, Fort Bragg’s operations were threatened to be shut down due to sharp decline in existence of rare species of birds known as the re-cockaded woodpecker. Because of the rising threat to the extinction of the birds, the USA fish and wildlife service raised an alarm requiring the Fort to take action to save the birds or face harsh restrictions on military services in the area. The military leaders did not like the jeopardy opinion as they claimed that they had just returned from Gulf war. They argued that their operations were not harming the wood pecker but, those behind the decline of the birds was due to ecological neglect. In addition, forest fire in the area altered the longleaf pine home preferred by the red-cockaded woodpecker and that the dense thickets and scrub oaks exposed the birds to danger and stiff competition. The red-cockaded woodpecker has been considered endangered by the U.S Endangered Species Act of 1973. After the passage of this act, the population of these birds has continued to plummet for decades. The birds have no habitat because their preferred longleaf pine trees had been cut off for timber and cleared for farm fields. However, frequent wildfires were significant to increase in number of red-cockaded woodpecker because these fires stimulate sprouting original groundcover that shelters the woodpeckers and it clears out thickets and scrub oak allowing the pines to thrive.

Sequence Diagram – Flight Reservation System.
A Sequence diagram in the words of Janssen available at Techopedia: “A sequence diagram, in the context of UML, represents object collaboration and is used to define event sequences between objects for a certain outcome.” (Janssen, 2010) A Sequence Diagram consists of actors (identified in the use case diagram), system, and their interaction (sequence of actions) with respect to time.
Although the company has not managed to establish its operations in the industry, it has managed to remain a profitable entity each year. In the recent past, the wood industry has become very competitive yet a profitable one, a trend that has pushed wood companies to adjust and take advantage of the market opportunities.
