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

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 486 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."--BOOK JACKET

The CABI encyclopedia of forest trees by CABI( )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an extensive overview of 300 of the world's most important forest trees. Tropical, subtropical, temperate and boreal trees of major economic importance are included, covering tree species used in agroforestry practices around the world. Many of the species covered are considered to be 'multipurpose' trees with uses extending beyond timber alone; the land uses such as watershed protection or provision of windbreaks, and non-wood uses such as the production of medicines, resins, food and forage, are also listed. Comprehensive information is presented on each tree's importance, with a summary of the main characteristics of the species, its potential for agroforestry use and any disadvantages it possesses. The tree's botanical features such as habit, stem form, foliage, inflorescence, flower and fruit characters and phenology are covered in detail with over 70 colour plate pictures to aid identification. Also included are specific sections devoted to pests and diseases, distribution and silvicultural characteristics and practices, including seed sowing, nursery care, planting, thinning, and harvesting. In addition to the wealth of information detailed, based on datasheets from CABI's Forestry Compendium, selected references for further reading are provided for each entry, making this book an essential reference work for forestry students, researchers and practitioners

Waste composting for urban and peri-urban agriculture : closing the rural-urban nutrient cycle in sub-Saharan Africa by P Drechsel( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rapid urbanization has created a major challenge with regard to waste management and environmental protection. However, the problem can be ameliorated by turning organic waste into compost for use as an agricultural fertilizer in urban and peri-urban areas. This is especially significant in less developed countries, where food security is also a key issue. This book addresses these subjects and is mainly based on papers presented at a workshop held in Ghana by the International Board for Soil Research and Management (now part of the International Water Management Institute) and FAO. Special reference is given to sub-Saharan Africa, with acknowledgement to experiences from other parts of the world
The biology of grasses by G. P Chapman( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Methods for the examination of organismal diversity in soils and sediments( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 365 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
Disease selection : the way disease changed the world by Roger Webber( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diseases have had more influence on us than we realize. They have taken a major role in making us humans and probably determine the way we run our lives. They emerged with us from our ancestral home in Africa, to spread to the rest of the planet. History is full of the great epidemics of plague, smallpox and anthrax, with the present catastrophe of HIV that is changing the demography of the world in a similar way to its predecessors. We survived because of our genetic variation and immune system and it will be this that will save us again. So fundamental has been the part that disease has played in the world that it has brought about change, just as much as has natural selection. Actually disease has been another force, sometimes acting with natural selection but often in opposition. It continues to have a far more profound effect on all of us than realized, selecting the course of the world just as much as nature has"--Provided by publisher
