The Molecular biology of flowering by B. R Jordan( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second edition of the book first published in 1993 with a title of "The Molecular Biology of Flowering". It expands and updates the current knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of flowering and shows how molecular biology and the opportunities of biotechnology have made major progress when applied to flowering. It includes new chapters and others substantially revised and updated. Topics such as the evolution of flowers, floral senescence and apomixis are included in this new edition. The 13 chapters of this book are presented in the following sections: external and internal regulation of flowering (3 chapters); floral development (6 chapters); and fertilization and gametophyte development (4 chapters). The book is intended for research workers and advanced students in plant molecular biology and developmental biology, from both pure and applied (agricultural and horticultural) perspectives
Methods for the examination of organismal diversity in soils and sediments( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our lack of knowledge of the organisms dwelling in soils and sediments and of their roles in ecological processes, constitutes a major barrier to understanding how ecosystems operate. This topic has both academic and applied relevance. Thus, in order to forecast the implications of perturbations in a site on both the species present and ecosystem functioning, whether direct (e.g. pollution or physical disturbance) or indirect (e.g. climate change), methods need to be available that can be used to ascertain what organisms are present in a sample. This book provides an authoritative manual of the techniques now used for different organisms. It has been developed as part of UNESCO's contribution to the DIVERSITAS programme and implemented through the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS). Soil organisms and those inhabiting freshwater and marine sediments, from microbes (bacteria, algae, fungi, etc.) to macrofauna (earthworms, nematodes, molluscs, etc.) are all treated. The chapters are arranged by organismal groups and have been written by recognized specialists from the USA and Europe. The book makes a major contribution to the literature and will be indispensable for soil and aquatic biologists and ecologists, as well as those with a broader interest in biodiversity and environmental sciences

River basin trajectories : societies, environments and development by International Water Management Institute( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains 11 papers which cover a range of vital topics in the areas of water, agriculture, food security and ecosystems - the entire spectrum of developing and managing water in agriculture, from fully irrigated to fully rainfed lands. They are about people and society, why they decide to adopt certain practices and not others and, in particular, how water management can help poor people. They are about ecosystems - how agriculture affects ecosystems, the goods and services ecosystems provide for food security and how water can be managed to meet both food and environmental security objectives. This is the eighth book in the series
Tropical fruits by Robert E Paull( Book )

Going organic : mobilizing networks for environmentally responsible food production by Stewart Lockie( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book sets out to examine what is really going on in the organic sector - socially and politically. In the process, it debunks a number of apparently common sense beliefs: that organic consumers are wealthy and health extremists; that growth in the industry will inevitably undermine its environmental values; that the mainstream media are antagonistic to organics; that the industry is driven by consumer demand. This book seeks to make a practical contribution to the development of more sustainable food systems by exploring and revealing what it takes to get people involved in organics at each stage of the food chain."--Jacket

The amenity migrants : seeking and sustaining mountains and their cultures by Laurence A. G Moss( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes and analyses the challenges and opportunities of amenity migration to mountain areas and its management, and offers related recommendations. The book's chapters cover the subject through case studies at international, regional and local levels, along with overarching themes such as environmental sustainability and equity, mountain recreation users, housing, and spiritual motivation. Crucial issues addressed are the relationship of amenity migration to tourism and migration motivated by economic gain. Part I (chapters 1-3) describes and analyses key aspects of the amenity migration phenomenon that arch across specific place experiences, while chapters 4-20 are organized geographically, covering amenity migration in the Americas (part II), in Europe (part III), and in the Asia Pacific region (part IV). Chapter 21 concludes by bringing all the information together and focusing on the future of amenity-led migration. The book has a subject index
