Biogeochemistry of a forested ecosystem by Gene E Likens( Book )

46 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the classic ecosystem studies at Hubbard Brook in New Hampshire, this book presents an in-depth analysis of the biogeochemistry of a terrestrial ecosystem. It synthesizes more than 30 years of data on precipitation and stream-water chemistry, hydrology, and weathering, and also considers the role of atmospheric gases and water as they flow through the system. The book illustrates ways in which ecosystems are affected by the three major biogeochemical vectors of the Earth: air, water, and animals. In turn, it shows how an ecosystem moderates and changes inputs, and how it is connected to global biogeochemical cycles by its outputs
Limnological analyses by Robert G Wetzel( Book )

45 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Limnological Analyses covers the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of standing and running waters, and provides students with a solid foundation in this complex multidisciplinary field of ecology. The book illustrates accepted standard methods as well as modern metabolic and experimental approaches and their research applications." "Instructors and students of limnology will value Limnological Analyses for its highly structured, concise presentation and its research-oriented approach that invites active participation. The methodology presented here will also be useful to aquatic resource managers, pollution and water-quality researchers, and all biologists studying the response of aquatic organisms to environmental changes."--Jacket

Effective ecological monitoring by David Lindenmayer( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecologists and managers of natural resources readily acknowledge the importance of long-term monitoring for improved understanding and management of complex environmental systems. Long-term data are crucially important for providing baselines for evaluating environmental change. They are also fundamental for detecting and evaluating changes in ecosystem structure and function, and for evaluating response to disturbances such as climate change or pollution. Countless scientific articles, books, management plans and other documents have been written about the need to conduct long-term monitoring. However, although there have undoubtedly been some highly successful long-term ecological monitoring programs, there is a history of poorly planned and unfocused efforts that are either ineffective or fail completely

The ecological basis of conservation : heterogeneity, ecosystems, and biodiversity by Steward T Pickett( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conservation and management of wild natural resources stands at a crossroads. On the one hand, there are the stunning successes of the focus of species, of which the protection of endangered species is the pinnacle. On the other hand, stands the need for conservation to embrace landscapes and ecosystems, and to be more anticipatory and forward looking, rather than responding to manifest endangerment and acute crisis. These needs are the emerging agenda of conservation ecology. To advance the internal agenda of the science, theories, models, and field studies of populations and ecosystems will need to be better integrated. The book attempts to bring these two aspects of ecology closer together in conservation. A new paradigm in ecology paves the way for this integration. The parallel changes in conservation can also enhance the synthesis between ecology and conservation practice. The book explores a broad range of targets for conservation, illustrating the value of the new syntheses. Furthermore, the contributors evaluate the role of theory, and of both familiar and novel types of models, to indicate how such tools can be employed over the range of scales and processes that conservation must now address. The book contains diverse practical examples and case studies of how the new thinking in ecology, and the new partnerships required for more successful conservation, actually work and can be improved. The examples range from freshwater to arid, and from subtropical to boreal. The strongest use of science in conservation requires effective linkage between science and policy, and between science and management. The land ethic motivates the external agenda for science and its application and the resulting activity of scientists in the public discourse. Recommendations for the scope and nature of scientific engagement in the public debate are presented. Interactions with the media and presentation of ecological information to the public are key tools scientists must hone. Analysis of the practical needs and the policy landscape suggest priorities for management and for research. The external agenda to be addressed by science and its application is the complex interaction of human population size, culture, and economics with ecological systems

Integrated regional models : interactions between humans and their environment by Peter M Groffman( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Integrated regional models are conceptual and mathematical models that describe the physical environment, biological interactions, human decision-making, and human impact on the environment. Efforts are now being made to integrate regional models from the physical, biological and social sciences in order to respond to diverse environmental problems. This volume explores the latest research developments on processes operating at a variety of scales, including regions, and how scientists can combine their efforts to develop models linking biological, physical, and human systems. Data requirements for successful integrated regional models are identified and discussed. Chapters also consider methodological questions, such as whether to integrate disciplinary approaches at the beginning or the end of the modelling process, and whether integrated regional models should focus on specific regions or specific problems. The information in this volume will enable the reader to view problems such as coastal zone management, atmospheric pollution, non-point source pollution, commodity production in forested areas, and urban expansion in a broad, conceptual context. Researchers and graduate students in ecology, biology, geography and geology will benefit from this innovative approach to contemporary environmental problems
