LANDUCATE - to chew up lands in the name of restoring a state of eco-stasis.
Example: the re-introduction of warthogs to Yellowstone National Park because they were snorting around during the Pleistocene.

POLYPHILOPROGENITIVE

PRONUNCIATION: (pol-ee-fi-luh-pro-JEN-uh-tiv)

MEANING: adjective: Extremely prolific.

ETYMOLOGY: From Greek poly- (many) + philo- (loving) + Latin progenitive (producing offspring), from pro- (toward) + past participle of gignere (to beget). Earliest documented use: 1919, in a poem by T.S. Eliot.

==========================

POLYP-HILL-PROGENITIVE - making lots of coral reefs

Very clever indeed! Although possibly open to misinterpretation - I would have guessed it meant aging very fast, and prematurely ("progeria"). I offer as evidence a very old joke:

...Young cub reporter on her first Human Interest assignment goes to a Nursing Home to interview the oldest resident she can see.

"What do you owe your age to?" she ventures.

"Three things," he says. "I smoke a carton of cigarettes every day. I drink a quart of bourbon daily. I never sleep with the same woman twice...and I never go to bed alone!" comes the reply.

"Oh, my goodness," says the sweet young thing. "And just how old are you?

"Twenty-three," he says...
