Ainsworth & Bisby's dictionary of the fungi by G. C Ainsworth( Book )

65 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in English and held by 1,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the one essential handbook for all who work with or are interested in fungi (including lichens, slime moulds, and yeasts). This new edition, with 20,000 entries, provides the most complete listing of generic names of and terms used to describe fungi available. For each genus, the authority, the date of publication, status, systematic position, number of accepted species, distribution, and key references are given. Diagnoses of families, orders and higher categories are included for most groups. In addition, there are biographic notes, information on well-known metabolites and mycotoxins, and broad accounts of almost all pure and applied aspects of the subject (including citations of important literature). In addition the eighth edition has the following new features: a revised general classification of fungal phyla reflecting the latest molecular evidence; entries for all recognized families, including authorship and date of publication; a dichotomous identification key to the recognized families in all groups (the first to appear since 1931); a synopsis of the proposed classification: with accepted genera listed, families, etc.; entries for major fungal reference and genetic resource collections; illustrations updated and placed in text; and new entries for terms used in biology where they are relevant to mycology."--Jacket

18 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A introdução a uma série de onze artigos em medidas e estimativas da biodiversidade, oito questões foram colocadas: O que é biodiversidade? Biodiversidade é somente o número de espécies em uma área? Se biodiversidade é mais do que o número de espécies como pode ser medida? Todas as espécies têm o mesmo peso? Medidas de biodiversidade incluem variância genética infraespecífica? Algumas espécies contribuem mais que outras para a biodiversidade em uma área? Existem indicadores úteis de áreas onde a biodiversidade é alta? E a extensão da biodiversidade em grupos taxonômicos podem ser estimados por extrapolação? Além disso, o conceito moderno de diversidade biológica é atribuído a Elliot R. Norse e seus colegas
Filamentous fungi by D. L Hawdsworth( Book )

This book presents data on the use and location of filamentous fungi for biotechnologists. The addresses and scope of all of the major fungi-holding collections are detailed, together with information on how to access the data, administration and safety, identification, culture and media recipes, patents, preservation, specialist services, and other international organisations. The authors are all international authorities who have combined with the resource centers to provide this unique source book

Methods for the examination of organismal diversity in soils and sediments( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our lack of knowledge of the organisms dwelling in soils and sediments and of their roles in ecological processes, constitutes a major barrier to understanding how ecosystems operate. This topic has both academic and applied relevance. Thus, in order to forecast the implications of perturbations in a site on both the species present and ecosystem functioning, whether direct (e.g. pollution or physical disturbance) or indirect (e.g. climate change), methods need to be available that can be used to ascertain what organisms are present in a sample. This book provides an authoritative manual of the techniques now used for different organisms. It has been developed as part of UNESCO's contribution to the DIVERSITAS programme and implemented through the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS). Soil organisms and those inhabiting freshwater and marine sediments, from microbes (bacteria, algae, fungi, etc.) to macrofauna (earthworms, nematodes, molluscs, etc.) are all treated. The chapters are arranged by organismal groups and have been written by recognized specialists from the USA and Europe. The book makes a major contribution to the literature and will be indispensable for soil and aquatic biologists and ecologists, as well as those with a broader interest in biodiversity and environmental sciences

Marine, freshwater, and wetlands biodiversity conservation by D. L Hawksworth( Book )

59 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite their enormous bulk and complexity of architecture, plants make up only around a quarter of a million of the 8 million or so species on Earth. The major components of biodiversity, instead, are the smaller, largely unseen, silent majority of invertebrates {u2013} most of which are arthropods. Vertebrates, a mere blip on the biotic horizon, are elevated in importance in the bigger scheme of things only by the human psyche. This collection of more than 30 peer-reviewed papers focuses on the diversity and conservation of arthropods, whose species inhabit virtually every recess and plane {u2013} and feature somewhere in virtually every food web {u2013} on the planet. Highlighting issues ranging from large-scale disturbance to local management, and from spatial heterogeneity to temporal patterns, these papers reflect some of the most exciting new research taking place today {u2013} and in some of the most biodiverse corners of the planet. Edited by David Hawksworth and Alan Bull, with a preface by Michael J Samways, this book will provide a valuable reference to anyone interested in the diversity and conservation of arthropods. Reprinted from Biodiversity and Conservation 15:1 (2006), excluding the paper by R. O'Malley et al., The diversity and distribution of the fruit bat fauna (Mammalia, Chiroptera, Megachiroptera) of Danjugan Island, Cauayan, Negros Occidental, Philippines (with notes on the Microchiroptera), pp. 43-56
