Invasive species in a changing world by Harold A Mooney( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Invasive Species in a Changing World brings together leading scientists from around the world to examine the invasive species phenomenon and to consider the mutual interactions between global change and invasives that are likely to occur over the next century. Contributors focus on the proposition that global change will exacerbate the invasive species problem, and they set forth the idea that invasives are themselves a global change element that need to be considered in global change scenarios." "Invasive Species in a Changing World provides readers with the background and knowledge they need to begin developing strategies to combat the invasive species problem, and it is essential reading for anyone concerned with the impact of invasive species on ecosystem health and functioning."--Jacket

Physiological ecology of North American plant communities by Brian F Chabot( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although, as W.D. Billings notes in his chapter in this book. the development of physiological ecology can be traced back to the very beginnings of the study of ecology it is clear that the modern development of this field in North America is due in the large part to the efforts of Billings alone. The foundation that Billings laid in the late 1950s came from his own studies on deserts and subsequently arctic and alpine plants, and also from his enormous success in instilling enthusiasm for the field in the numerous students attracted to the plant ecology program at Duke University. Billings' own studies provided the model for subsequent work in this field. Physiological techniques. normally confined to the laboratory. were brought into the field to examine processes under natural environmental conditions. These field studies were accompanied by experiments under controlled conditions where the relative impact of various factors could be assessed and further where genetic as opposed to environmental influences could be separated. This blending of field and laboratory approaches promoted the design of experiments which were of direct relevance to understanding the distribution and abundance of plants in nature. Physiological mechanisms were studied and assessed in the context of the functioning of plants under natural conditions rather than as an end in itself
Principles of terrestrial ecosystem ecology by F. Stuart Chapin( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring review questions at the end of each chapter, suggestions for recommended reading, and a glossary of ecological terms, Principles of Terrestrial Ecosystem Ecology will be an important text suitable for use in all courses on ecosystem ecology. Resource managers, land use managers, and researchers will also welcome its thorough presentation of ecosystem essentials."--Jacket
Biodiversity and ecosystem function by E.-D Schulze( Book )

23 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the accelerating loss of biodiversity there is increasing concern about how this loss may be affecting ecosystem processes, or services, that are of benefit to human well being. The limited studies that address the principal question directly, species numbers versus system function, are evaluated. Moreover, the degree of redundancy within systems, the ubiquity of keystone species, the tightness of species interactions from mutualisms to food webs, the resilience of systems to perturbation, the interactions of landscape units are explored, as is also how policy decisions are driven in this research area. This book brings together the disciplines of population biology and ecoysystem science, both directed toward evaluating the consequences of human-driven disruptions of natural systems

The Biology of vines( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The climbing habit in plants has apparently evolved numerous times. Species that climb are well represented in habitats ranging from tropical rain forests through temperate forests to semi-deserts. The Biology of Vines, first published in 1992, is a treatment of what is known about climbing plants, written by a group of experts and covering topics ranging from the biomechanics of twining to silvicultural methods for controlling vine infestations. Also included are detailed accounts of climbing plant evolution, stem anatomy and function, climbing mechanics, carbon and water relations, reproductive ecology, the role of vines in forest communities and their economic importance. The chapters are based on research on herbaceous vines and woody climbers (lianas) in both temperate and tropical zones, deserts and rain-forests and Old and New World areas. Much remains to be learned about the biology of these plants, but this volume provides a substantial foundation upon which further research can be based

Terrestrial global productivity by Jacques Roy( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the global climate changes, there are concomitant changes in global biological productivity. This book is devoted to the assessment of terrestrial Net Primary Productivity ("the total amount of energy acquired by green plants during photosynthesis, minus the energy lost through respiration"--APDS & T, pp. 1457). The book is comprised of three major sections. The first section is a review of the processes that operate globally to influence productivity--these are the initial conditions of any model of primary productivity. The second section is comprised of chapters that assess the c
Remote sensing of biosphere functioning by R. J Hobbs( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 1993 in English and Japanese and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the development of remote sensing technology, it will soon become possible to make truly global assessments of the Earth's changing structural and functional properties. In this book, researchers and users of the available technology examine the potential for monitoring individual biological and chemical features of biotic systems as well as for the remote sensing of processes central to biosphere functioning, namely, the exchange of carbon, water, and trace gases. The aim of the book is to offer a synthesis of current methodologies and research problems, covering analysis of all levels of biosphere functioning from the remote sensing of the underlying mechanisms to the detection of structural changes at the vegetation and landscape levels

Carbon dioxide and environmental stress by Yiqi Luo( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the interactive effects of environmental stresses with plant and ecosystem functions, especially with respect to changes in the abundance of carbon dioxide. The interaction of stresses with elevated carbon dioxide are presented from the cellular through whole plant ecosystem level. The book carefully considers not only the responses of the above-ground portion of the plant, but also emphasizes the critical role of below-ground (rhizosphere) components (e.g., roots, microbes, soil) in determining the nature and magnitude of these interactions. * Will rising CO2 alter the importance of environmental stress in natural and agricultural ecosystems? * Will environmental stress on plants reduce their capacity to remove CO2 from the atmosphere? * Are some stresses more important than others as we concern ourselves with global change? * Can we develop predictive models useful for scientists and policy-makers? * Where should future research efforts be focused?
Carbon dioxide and terrestrial ecosystems by George W Koch( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of carbon dioxide extends from cellular to global levels of organization and potential ecological deterioration may be the result of increased CO2 in our atmosphere. Recently, the research emphasis shifted from studies of photosynthesis pathways and plant growth to ground-breaking studies of carbon dioxide balances in ecosystems, regions, and even the entire globe. Carbon Dioxide and Terrestrial Ecosystems addresses these new areas of research. Economically important woody ecosystems are emphasized because they have substantial influence on global carbon dioxide balances. Herbaceous ecosystems (e.g., grasslands, prairies, wetlands) and crop ecosystems are also covered. The interactions among organisms, communities, and ecosystems are modeled, and the book closes with an important synthesis of this growing nexus of research. Carbon Dioxide and Terrestrial Ecosystems is a compilation of detailed scientific studies that reveal how ecosystems generally, and particular plants specifically, respond to changed levels of carbon dioxide. Key Features * Contributions from an international team of experts * Empirical examination of the actual effects of carbon dioxide * Variety of terrestrial habitats investigated * Specific plants and whole ecosystems offered as studies
Seasonally dry tropical forests by Rodolfo Dirzo( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prolonged seasonal drought affects most of the tropics, including vast areas presently or recently dominated by 'dry forests'. These forests have received scant attention, despite the fact that humans have used and changed them more than rain forests. This volume reviews the available information, often making contrasts with wetter forests. The world's dry forest heterogeneity of structure and function is shown regionally. In the neotropics, biogeographic patterns differ from those of wet forests, as does the spectrum of plant life-forms in terms of structure, physiology, phenology and reproduction. Biomass distribution, nutrient cycling, below-ground dynamics and nitrogen gas emission are also reviewed. Exploitation schemes are surveyed, and examples are given of non-timber product economies. It is hoped that this review will stimulate research leading to more conservative and productive management of dry forests
Bioinvasions and globalization : ecology, economics, management, and policy by Charles Perrings( Book )

Ecosystems of California( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This long-anticipated reference and sourcebook for California's remarkable ecological abundance provides an integrated assessment of each major ecosystem type--its distribution, structure, function, and management. A comprehensive synthesis of our knowledge about this biologically diverse state, this book covers the state's oceans to mountaintops using multiple lenses: past and present, flora and fauna, aquatic and terrestrial, natural and managed. Each chapter evaluates natural processes for a specific ecosystem, describes drivers of change, and discusses how that ecosystem may be altered in the future. This book also explores the drivers of California's ecological patterns and the history of the state's various ecosystems, outlining how the challenges of climate change and invasive species and opportunities for regulation and stewardship could potentially affect the state's ecosystems. The text explicitly incorporates both human impacts and conservation and restoration efforts and shows how ecosystems support human well-being. Edited by two esteemed ecosystem ecologists and with overviews by leading experts on each ecosystem, this definitive work will be indispensable for natural resource management and conservation professionals as well as for undergraduate or graduate students of California's environment and curious naturalists"--Provided by publisher
