Tundra by Peter D Moore( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the climate, land formations, plant life, and animals of the frozen arctic land called tundra. The geography and geology of tundra habitats have many physical and climatic constraints. Yet while biodiversity is low, ecosystems still exist in this environment. Much of the mega fauna that we are familiar with such as wooly mammoths and giant elkinhabited tundra environments, and much of what we know of early human activity took place in this harsh ecosystem. Tundra presents a thorough overview of the tundra habitat past, present, and future. Unique qualities of life, such as slow-growing dwarf trees and animals exhibiting large bodies and small ears, are described and discussed in the context of adaptation and survival strategy. The history and prehistory of tundra are also explored. Past and present exploitation of tundra ecosystems is diverse. There is abundant mineral, gas, and oil wealth in these areas, and ecotourism and winter sports are abundant. As use of tundra ecosystems expands, problems connected with climate change, waste disposal, and other threats to the ecosystem must be addressed. Tundra examines these issues and more, in an easy-to-use format perfect for any science library or classroom

Agricultural and urban areas by Peter D Moore( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ecosystems that arise from the development of agricultural and urban areas are diverse because they exist in different areas throughout the world, from New York to New Delhi. Urban and agricultural planning requires consideration of the impact the change in environment will have on existing conditions. Agricultural and Urban Areas explores the unique ecosystems that are essentially man-made. This fascinating volume explores the importance of these areas in maintaining the food supply that supports humanity and in forming the basic social, economic, and industrial processes. Beginning with an introduction to the geography of farms and cities, this volume goes on to discuss the chemical impact urban habitats have on the environment, including waste disposal, sewage treatment, and air pollution. Developments such as the rise of different methods of agriculture and trade and the domestication of animals are presented as steppingstones to our current systems. Conservation of plants and animals as well as original natural habitats is a subject of much contention in light of the rise and expansion of agriculture and urban life. This volume raises and examines these and other questions concerning preservation and conservation
