Monitoring butterflies for ecology and conservation : the British butterfly monitoring scheme by E Pollard( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species dispersal in agricultural habitats by R. G. H Bunce( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book takes as its theme the fundamental, but still little understood processes whereby plant and animal species disperse through space and over time. The mechanisms of dispersal are complex and varied so the book adopts a thematic perspective, reviewing in the first chapter general principles and then describing surveys of major botanical and zoological groups, primarily, but not exclusively, in agricultural environments. The contributors are all leading specialists in the field and present results from current research. Published in association with the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, this book is a valuable review of a key field for plant scientists, zoologists, agricultural scientists, ecologists and biogeographers

Aquatic plants in Britain and Ireland by C. D Preston( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aquatic Plants in Britain and Ireland is the result of a joint project of the Environment Agency (formerly the National Rivers Authority), the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, Monks Wood, and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee." "Over the past 50 years, major changes have taken place in the distribution of aquatic plants in Europe. Many species have declined in the face of habitat destruction, unsympathetic management of existing habitats, or the acidification or eutrophication of freshwaters. Other species have increased in abundance or spread, including several that were originally introduced from the New World. Despite the relative richness of the aquatic flora of Britain and Ireland it is a neglected area of study, due in part to its comparative inaccessibility and partly to the taxonomic difficulty of some genera." "This book summarizes the distribution, habitat and reproductive biology of 200 taxa in 72 genera and provides a brief summary of their wider distribution. Distribution maps are provided for all taxa and each genus is illustrated with a line drawing to aid identification."--BOOK JACKET

Virus diseases of trees and shrubs by J. I Cooper( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second edition of a widely-respected book covering all aspects of virus pathology concerning trees and shrubs. The book commences with an outline of the features which distinguish viruses from other parasites and pathogens. It then describes current classification systems and detection options before detailing in a standardized way, the relevant viruses and their associated diseases. The book concludes with an appraisal of two questions: are trees reservoirs for viruses which affect food plants and are specific tree diseases linked with global warming and/or atmospheric pollution? This new edition contains much new information, including details of a new taxonomic system, recently recognized virus-like pathogens and a changing approach to the subject of virology. The inclusion of a colourplate section is of great value for symptom recognition. The author, Dr Cooper, who is an acknowledged expert on plant virology, has provided a book which will be of great value to professional horticulturalists, plant pathologists, foresters and urban planners as well as to teachers, researchers and students of plant pathology, virology, horticulture, forestry and arboriculture
