Before and after an oil spill : the Arthur Kill by Joanna Burger( )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In January 1990, New York Harbor suffered a major oil spill when an underwater pipe at an Exxon refinery leaked into the Arthur Kill, the fifteen-mile strait that runs between New Jersey and Staten Island, New York. The waterway is home to herons and egrets, fiddler crabs and sea turtles, and a favorite place for recreational fishing, bird-watching, hiking, and boating. It is also lined with refineries and a busy corridor for oil tankers. Because this industrial activity posed such a threat to the fragile ecosystem, biologists had been monitoring the region's water, soil, vegetation, and wildlife for some time before the oil spill. Thus, we have before-and-after data about the habitat - the only oil spill anywhere for which this is true. This unique book discusses the human consequences of the oil spill as well as providing detailed studies of its effects on the plants and animals of the Arthur Kill. Biologists, environmentalists, lawyers, and officials worldwide will find this book an essential guide to dealing with - and possibly preventing - future environmental disasters
A naturalist along the Jersey shore by Joanna Burger( )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Come for a journey along the Jersey shore with naturalist and ecologist Joanna Burger! In these deeply felt, closely observed personal essays and field sketches, Burger invokes the intertwined lives of naturalist and wild creatures at the ever-changing edge of ocean and land. Discover with her the delicate mating dances of fiddler crabs, the dangers to piping plovers, the swarming of fish into the bays and estuaries, the trilling notes of Fowler's toads, and the subtle green-grays of salt marshes." "Joanna Burger knows the shore through all its seasons - the first moment of spring when the herring gulls arrive on ice-gouged salt marshes, the end of spring when the great flocks of shorebirds come to feed on horseshoe crab eggs at Cape May, the summer when the peregrine hunts its prey, the fall when the migrations of hawks and monarch butterflies attract watchers from around the world, and the depths of winter when a lone snowy owl sweeps across snow-covered dunes and frozen bay."--Jacket

Oil spills by Joanna Burger( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oil Spills is the first book to survey the history of oil spills, the problems they create, the types of clean-ups and their efficacy, the legal, social, economic, and ecological consequences of oil spills, their long-term impacts on the wildlife and people who survive them, and the alternatives to oil and its transport. Biologist Joanna Burger writes clearly and accessibly both about the catastrophic oil spills that capture the headlines and the small chronic pipeline

You will find no other book that covers all the major seabird groups and essential topics with this depth of detail. Whether you are studying, researching, or managing marine environments, you will find yourself reaching for this reference repeatedly."--Jacket
Stakeholders and scientists : achieving implementable solutions to energy and environmental issues by Joanna Burger( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science and Stakeholders provides a conceptual framework for stakeholder involvement, followed by case studies to explore how to integrate and collaborate among diverse stakeholders and communities to solve environmental and energy-related problems. Stakeholder participation should result in more transparent and acceptable solutions that protect both human and ecological health. Many of the chapters are about place-based environmental management, but all of the chapters deal with how stakeholders have improved (or failed to improve) decision-making processes. The final chapters discuss the role of communication and the media, and a synthesis of stakeholder participation. Although not directly about energy itself, one chapter discusses a range of energy sources and how stakeholders can interact, and each chapter describes in detail the environmental or energy-related issue being discussed. This is the first book to examine how science and stakeholders interact in an open and transparent manner to solve otherwise difficult and contentious issues related to energy and the environment

Birdlife of the Gulf of Mexico by Joanna Burger( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gulf of Mexico is one of the most important ecological regions in the world for birds. The mosaic of diverse habitats in the region provides numerous niches for birds. There are productive salt marshes, barrier islands, and sandy beaches for foraging and nesting; a direct pathway between North and Central and South America for migrating; and warm, tropical waters for wintering. Many species are residents all year around, some migrate through, and still others spend the winter along the shores. The Gulf Coast is home to a significant portion of the world's population of Reddish Egret and Snowy Plover and a significant portion of the US breeding populations of certain birds, including the Sandwich Tern, Black Skimmer, and Laughing Gull. In total, there are more than 400 bird species that rely on the Gulf at some time during the year. Drawing on decades of fieldwork and data research, renowned ornithologist and behavioral ecologist Joanna Burger provides detailed descriptions of birdlife in the Gulf of Mexico. Burger records trends in bird population, behavior, and major threats and stressors affecting birds in the region, including the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010. While some of this data exists in journal articles, research papers, and government reports, this is the first volume to weave together a comprehensive overview of the birds and related natural resources found in the Gulf of Mexico. Illustrated with over 900 color photographs, charts, and maps, this landmark reference volume will be immensely important for researchers, conservationists, land managers, birders, and wildlife lovers
