Fire in the tropical biota : ecosystem processes and global challenges by J. G Goldammer( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph covers the impact and role of fire in tropical ecosystems. It also studies the impact of tropical wildland fires and biomass burning on global ecosystem processes. In the first part, regional contributions cover the origin and the ecological effects of fire in the main tropical vegetation types of Asia, Latin America, Australia and Africa. Both the prehistorical and the historical perspectives are added in order to clarify the role of man in the evolution of tropical wildland fire regimes. The magnitude and impact of today's escalating tropical vegetation degradation by fire is described by contributions on remote sensing. The quality of emissions from biomass burning and an overall pantropical assessment of gaseous emissions from vegetation burning highlight their impact on a changing global atmosphere. The final chapter demonstrates that global climate change may itself have considerable effects on vegetation and fire regimes. What is new is a multi-disciplinary approach to tropical and global fire ecology. For the first time, the reader will find comprehensive original information as well as secondary sources on wildland fire phenomena and fire problems in the tropics
Problems involving change of type : proceedings of a conference, held at the University of Stuttgart, FRG, October 11-14, 1988 by K Kirchgässner( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spontaneous change of type is a widely observed phenomenon in physics. In this volume, leading experts survey from a mathematical point of view topics such as phase transitions in crystals, cluster dynamics, viscoelastic flows, motion of interfaces in thermodynamics, shocks in transonic flows, and nonlinear diffusion with finite speed of propagation. Owing to new mathematical techniques, there is now a renewed interest in these difficult questions. The present volume supplies new results but may also serve as an excellent introduction to recent literature. It will be of interest to researchers and to graduate students in physics and mathematics

Debates on issues of our common future( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the threshold of the third millenium humankind is facing major challenges when it comes to developing solutions for the ecological, economical, social and cultural issues involved in creating a more sustainable develoopment on planet earth. How can we achieve compatibility between economy and ecology? Could it perhaps, be already too late for achieveing sustainable development? What will be the future role of work in our lives and our societies at the beginning of the 21st century? What impact will molecular medicine and modern biotechnology, or more generally science and technology have on the future development of individual human beings as well as on food production, population growth, etc? Which role will the access to information and knowledge play in an age of electronic communication? These are just a few out of many questions which come to mind when one tries to take a closer look at the challenges ahead, and they are precisely the reason why the Volkswagen Foundation decided to organize a series of symposia preceding the World Exposition 2000 which will take place in Hannover from 1 June until 31 October 2000. Its major topic is going to be "Humankind - Nature - Technology", and the thematic area as well as a series of" Global Dialogues" will pick up and elaborate further on several of the issues raised in the presentations and deebates of the symposia." -- Back cover

Vocational education and training in Sub-Saharan Africa : current situation and development by Friedhelm Eicker( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a rising demand for specialist workers in several countries of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The area still lacks a consistent system of professional training and further education. The conference transcript comprises practical knowledge collected by the authors to depict the current state of professional training within the Sub-Saharan African countries. The paper also introduces the reader to concepts for the development of a professional training system and provides an overview of the strategies and plans of different countries and institutions. The included articles were written within the framework of a symposium on the status quo and the perspective of professional training and further education. This gathering took place in Namibia in August 2016 and brought together researchers and business actors from the Sub-Saharan states, Europe, Australia, and Asia
