Описание: A survey of the development and practice of butterfly conservation in south east Australia, tracing evolution of the science through a series of cases from focus on single subspecies through increasing levels of ecological complexity to critical biotopes and communities. The book summarises much previously scattered information, and provides access to much regional information of considerable interest to practitioners elsewhere.
Описание: Air Pollution and Plant Biotechnology presents recent results in this field, including plant responses during phytomonitoring, pollution-resistant plant species, imaging diagnosis of plant responses, and the use of novel transgenic plants, along with reviews of basic plant physiology and biochemistry where appropriate.
Описание: The history of interest and practice in insect conservation is summarised and traced through contributions from many of the leaders in the discipline, to provide the first broad global account of how insects have become incorporated into considerations of conservation. The essays collectively cover the genesis and development of insect conservation, emphasising its strong foundation within the northern temperate regions and the contrasts with much of the rest of the world. Major present-day scenarios are discussed, together with possible developments and priorities in insect conservation for the future.
Описание: The ever increasing demands for environmental and consumer protection are a continuous challenge for research, development and regulation of crop protection chemicals. This book exclusively documents thirty invited lectures held at the 10th IUPAC International Congress on the Chemistry of Crop Protection in August 2002. These edited contributions take the form of reviews and presentations of original research results. They cover fundamental aspects of biology, chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology of disease, weed and insect control agents, as well as economic issues, aspects in production, formulation and application, and recent regulatory developments in environmental and consumer protection. Invaluable for industrial and academic research libraries in support of their R&D dertments with the latest, exclusive information.

Описание: Climate change is acknowledged as being one of the most important areas of research today. Increasing global temperatures will impact all of us to a greater or lesser extent. From the point of view of research it is an enormously important and complex subject. However, little attention is paid to its relationship to astronomy, the sun in particular but not exclusively. Though directed at an astronomically inclined readership, and providing some less well-known astronomically related information, studies and concepts, this book will also appeal to a broader public, who need to understand the subject of climate change and learn of all the various theories and possible solutions.
Описание: Are established economic, social and political practices capable of dealing with the combined contemporary crisis of climate change and economic disruption? Will falling back on those wisdoms that have prefigured crises help identify ways forward or simply reconfigure risk so that it might reappear in another guise in the future? This volume argues that the combination of global environmental change and global economic restructuring require a re-thinking of the priorities, processes and underlying values that shape contemporary development aspirations and policy."If you?re interested in getting to the bottom of why we are killing this beautiful planet of ours and finding out the ways in which we can fight this unfortunate tendency of our species, then, please, have a go, you might like it." ? Manchester Climate Monthly
