Biological diversity and function in soils by Richard D Bardgett( )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although soil provides physical support for plants and contributes to a variety of important environmental functions, many questions about the ecological significance of its biological diversity, and how ecosystem function is affected, have never been asked. Recent technical developments, as well as new experimental and modelling approaches, have led to a renaissance in soil biodiversity research. The key areas are reflected in this new volume, which brings together many leading contributions on the role and importance of soil biota

Wildlife conservation evaluation by Michael B Usher( Book )

In the mid 1970s two events led me to get to know the Yorkshire Dales better than I had previously. Since 1964 I had been to the Malham Tarn Field Centre with groups of students, first from the University of Edinburgh and then from the University of York, and my family very much enjoyed the summer days we spent amid this magnificent hill scenery. In 1976, the British Ecological Society and the National Trust jointly worked on a survey of the biological interest of the National Trust properties of the Kent, East Anglian and Yorkshire Regions. Malham Tarn itself, and the surrounding farms, formed one of the twenty properties of the Yorkshire Region. I spent the bank holiday, that commemorated the Queen's Silver Jubilee, at Malham, looking fairly closely at the National Trust's landholding there. Miss Sarah Priest, who also looked at the National Trust properties, and I produced a report in late 1977, attempting both to describe and to evaluate the nature resources of the National Trust in Yorkshire. In the following year, 1978, the Nature Conservancy Council wanted to survey the whole of the upland area that was known as the Malhaml Arncliffe SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). A contract to look at such an exciting area, considering where boundaries should go, and looking to see if there were important areas of habitat that should be brought within the SSSI, was a superb practical antidote to an office in the University

Conserving European biodiversity in the context of climate change by Michael B Usher( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and French and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate change is likely to have major environmental effects on natural habitats in the next fifty years. Conservation of biological diversity will have to be modified drastically to avoid massive extinctions of species of threatened habitat types. Precise recommendations are made to governments and conservation agencies that collaborate in the framework of the Bern Convention. This publication provides a starting point for discussion about possible adaptation strategies if Europe's biodiversity is to be conserved.--Publisher's description

Identification of key species for conservation and socio-economic development : proceedings of a workshop organized by the Commonwealth Science Council and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, Trinidad and Tabago, March 1989 by International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The worldwide conservation effort has often been focused on a few key species which have a core function either ecologically or socioeconomically. These species, scientists believe are important for the long term survival of Homo Sapiens. To develop the concept of key species a technical workshop was held in Trinidad and Tobago. The objective was to equate diverse views on what are key species and how to identify and conserve them in the context of current socioeconomic development. The first part of this book gives a complete report of the proceedings of the workshop. The second part contains the results of the first attempts by five member countries of the Commonwealth to identify key species in their respective countries based on the concepts given in the first part
