Ecology and silviculture of eucalypt forests by R. G Florence( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The practice of ecologically sustainable silviculture requires: an appreciation of the biological attributes of the eucalypt forest; conservation of natural species and community patterns throughout the forest; maintenance of the health of the forest - by setting ecological limits to changes in the composition and structure of the forest; estimates of the impacts of harvesting and silvicultural treatments on forest soils and ecosystem nutrients; and action to conserve all plants and animals of the forest - including the essential habitat components for wildlife species. A more fundamental understanding of Eucalyptus can contribute to the formulation of all ecologically sustainable forest practice. Ecology and Silviculture of Eucalypt Forests presents of preliminary approach to this

The biology of squat lobsters( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Squat lobsters of the superfamilies Chirostyloidea and Galatheoidea are highly visible crustaceans on seamounts, continental margins, shelf environments, hydrothermal vents and coral reefs. About 1000 species are known. They frequently feature in deep-sea images taken by submersibles and are caught in large numbers by benthic dredges. Some species are so locally abundant that they form 'red tides'. Others support a variety of important fisheries. The taxonomy of squat lobsters has been intensively studied over the past few decades, making them one of the best known deepwater crustacean groups
Living waters : ecology of animals in swamps, rivers, lakes and dams by Nick Romanowski( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wetlands are often seen as the ultimate symbol of beauty and tranquillity, their clear waters sheltering mysterious animals in a world where change is gentle and slow, from dragonflies skimming above their own reflections to the fishes glimpsed briefly below. Yet Australian wetlands are among the most varied and changeable habitats found anywhere, and the many creatures that live out their lives in and around water are superbly adapted to some of the most unpredictable ecosystems in the world. This book follows the diverse common themes and patterns that link inland waters from Tasmania to the tropics. It shows how cycles of change, the ways that different wetland animals travel through and between wetlands, and the interactions of the animals themselves create an ever-changing ecological kaleidoscope. Drawing on what is known of the biology, ecology and even the genetics of many of the most abundant, widespread and successful groups of animals, the author shows similarities to wetlands in other parts of the world, as well as some of the more extreme environments and specialised animals that are unique to this continent." --Publisher description
Biodiversity and environmental change : monitoring, challenges and direction by Emma Burns( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data-rich book demonstrates the value of existing national long-term ecological research in Australia for monitoring environmental change and biodiversity. Long-term ecological data are critical for informing trends in biodiversity and environmental change. The Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) is a major initiative of the Australian Government and one of its key areas of investment is to provide funding for a network of long-term ecological research plots around Australia (LTERN). LTERN researchers and other authors in this book have maintained monitoring sites, often for one

Resource recovery from wastewater: a research agenda : by Stewart Burn, Tim Muster, Anna Kaksonen, Grace Tjandraatmadja, CSIRO by Stewart Burn( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally wastewater treatment involved the removal of pollutants from wastewater to allow it to be discharged to the environment. This initially concentrated on carbon removal, but as environmental requirements became more stringent it was expanded to cover nitrogen and phosphorus removal. With increasing energy costs, more stringent environmental discharge limits and greater implementation of water sensitive urban design the economic viability of recovering water, energy and resources from wastewater is being considered more seriously. There are many examples worldwide of wastewater reuse and the methodologies are well known for the recovery of water which represents the most valuable resource in wastewater. On the contrary, the widespread application of energy, nitrogen and phosphorus recovery is just beginning to gain traction. A range of technological options for recovery of resources from wastewater are discussed in this report and in order of recovered value they include: 1) energy from methane capture, 2) direct phosphorus recovery, and 3) biosolids with improved phosphorus bioavailability. At this stage it is considered that the recovery of nitrogen via ammonia requires a step-change in technology for energy-efficient capture. Anaerobic wastewater treatment and more efficient anaerobic digestion of sludge offers major opportunities to improve the energy efficiency of the wastewater sector and to decrease biosolids levels, especially if additional sources of carbon can be included in the digestion process. However this raises the issue of the biologically un-available (refractory) carbon and how it can be converted to make it biologically available

Ecology of Australian temperate reefs : the unique South by S. A Shepherd( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecology of Australian Temperate Reefs presents the current state of knowledge of the ecology of important elements of southern Australian sub-tidal reef flora and fauna, and the underlying ecological principles. Preliminary chapters describe the geological origin, oceanography and biogeography of southern Australia, including the transitional temperate regions toward the Abrolhos Islands in the west and to Sydney in the east. The book then explains the origin and evolution of the flora and fauna at geological time scales as Australia separated from Antarctica; the oceanography of the region, including principal currents, and interactions with on-shelf waters; and the ecology of particular species or species groups at different tropic levels, starting with agae, then the ecological principles on which communities are organized. Finally, conversation and management issues are discussed

Mining in ecologically sensitive landscapes by Mark Tibbett( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mining in Ecologically Sensitive Landscapes explores the interface between geology and botany, and mining and conservation. Many areas of unusual geology that contain ore-bearing bodies also support unique ecological communities of plants and animals. Increasing demand to exploit rich mineral deposits can lead to a conflict between mining and conservation interests in such landscapes. This book brings together experts in the field of mining and conservation to grapple with this pressing issue and to work toward a positive outcome for all. Chapters are grouped into four themes: Introduction, Co
