Light; physical and biological action [by] Howard H. Seliger [and] William D. McElroy by Howard H Seliger( Book )

9 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Light: Physical and Biological Action provides an introduction to the significant problems that are usually considered in photobiology. This book covers a variety of topics, including photosensitization, phototropism, phototaxis, photosynthesis, bioluminescence, diurnal rhythms, and the measurement of molecular excitation by light. Organized into five chapters, this book begins with an overview of the characteristics of light from a purely physical and historical viewpoint. This text then discusses the various types of radiation, including temperature or thermal radiation, photoluminesc

The soil--plant system in relation to inorganic nutrition by Maurice Fried( Book )

9 editions published between 1967 and 1972 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Soil-Plant System in Relation to Inorganic Nutrition focuses on the soil-plant system in relation to the inorganic nutrition of plants. More specifically, the book investigates the dynamics of ion uptake in relation to those physical and chemical processes that must be considered both in understanding any observation made on the soil-plant system and in predicting the results of any stress placed on the system. This volume is organized into two parts encompassing seven chapters and begins with an overview of the inorganic nutrition of plants grown in the soil-plant system. This book t

Ecology of halophytes by Robert J Mold( Book )

4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecology of Halophytes documents the proceedings of a symposium on the ecology of halophytes sponsored by the Physiological Ecology section of the Ecological Society of America, and held as a portion of the American Institute of Biological Sciences meetings in August 1972. The book considers the fundamentals of distribution, anatomy, and physiology of halophytes. It provides an overview of the role of the halophyte in ecosystems in various parts of the world. A section on habitat associations of halophytes considers the relation of the plants to other fauna and flora in natural systems. A

Fire in North American tallgrass prairies( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The product of a 1987 symposium, "Fire in North American Grasslands," held in Columbus, Ohio, and sponsored by the Ecological and the Botanical Societies of America, this book is an excellent compilation of knowledge on the ecological role of fire in grasslands. Since this book's focus is limited to the tallgrass prairie, the effects of fire in this region are treated more completely than in H.A. Wright and A.W. Bailey's Fire Ecology: United States and Southern Canada (CH, Sep'82), which examines fire in substantially more vegetation types in the US and southern Canada. Chapters progress from the historical relationships of fire and grazing, into specific fire effects on individual plants and plant communities, to the broader perspective of fire impacts on ecosystem and landscape patterns. A chapter on the influence of fire on the underground system, namely plant roots, nutrient cycles, and soil biota, is especially valuable. The text is well edited with good reference sources. Users will include upper-division undergraduate and graduate students, plant ecologists, fire managers, and range resource professionals. Recommended for academic and public libraries. -M.J.

Radiation, radioactivity, and insects by R. D O'Brien( Book )

7 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radiation, Radioactivity, and Insects focuses on the role of radiation and radioactivity in promoting the understanding of insects, including biochemistry, embryonic development, irradiation, and metabolism. The book first underscores the importance and dominance of insects in the animal kingdom, classification of insects, physiology and biochemistry, and embryonic development. The manuscript then examines the nongenetic effects of radiation, tagging, and insect control by irradiation. Topics include sex and genome number, nutritional status, mechanism of radiation damage, distribution and
Chemistry of learning; invertebrate research by William C Corning( Book )

Phenology and seasonality modeling by Helmut Lieth( Book )

7 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pulse of life with the seasons is a classic theme of biology, equally cap­ turing every man's curiosity about early and late milestones of every year's cycle and the critical physiologist's inquiry into life's subtle signals and responses. Natural historians of ancient and renaissance time as well as today have charted the commonsense facts behind inspired traditions of poetry and practical rules for growing food and fiber. This volume brings together several ways of organizing the basic principles of phenology. These find order in the otherwise overwhelming mass of detail that captures our fleeting attention, like the daily newspaper, and then tends to fade into the overstuffed archives of history. Is this order so obvious and understandable that there is no longer any scien­ tific challenge to "phenology" as a tradition? Or does apparent simplicity mask a complex and ultimately baffling obstacle to the understanding of seasonality in even those few indicator plants and animals we know best, not to men­ tion the less known species or races making up the rest of each major land­ scape unit or ecosystem? Denying both these hasty opinions, we think that this volume well illustrates a range of questions and answers-from soundly established (but not trivial) doctrine to exciting inquiry about how ecosystems are organized
