Pilot analysis of global ecosystems : agroecosystems by Stanley Wood( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and Italian and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Agroecosystems are defined as 2a biological and natural resource system managed by humans for the primary purpose of producing food as well as other socially valuable nonfood goods and environmental services.3 The reports looks at the global extent of agricultural lands- land with 30 percent or greater agricultural activity- using a satellite-derived land cover database. Indicators of condition and value of agricultural and environmental goods and services were determined in consultation with agroecosystem experts in consideration of data limitations. Wherever possible, the spatial distribution of indicator values was shown within the satellite-derived global extent of agriculture. Results show that, although food production has more than kept pace with population growth it has done so at the expense of biodiversity, clean water, carbon storage capacity and the quality of soils. Twenty to 30 percent of the world's forest areas have been converted to agriculture, resulting in extensive species and habitat loss. Soil degradation, including nutrient depletion, erosion, and salinization, is widespread. Salt accumulation in soils has damaged 45 million hectares of agricultural land, representing some 20 percent of the world's total irrigated land. An additional 1.5 million hectares are damaged each year due to salinization. Agriculture consumes 70 percent of the freshwater withdrawn annually by humans. Irrigation is draining more water than is being replenished by rainfall, causing water tables to fall. Moreover, many water sources are being polluted by excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides. For these trends to change, agricultural lands need to meet the double challenge of increasing food production while continuing to provide much-needed environmental goods and services

Lonesome land by B. M Bower( )

4 editions published in 1912 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lonesome Land (1912) delicately balances an idealistic, romantic view of the American West with its hard, gritty reality. Although focused on the West's often lonesome and open lifestyle, scenes of true Western-genre suspense appear in this critical yet beautiful imaging of the land and its pioneers.<P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt> <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Valeria Peyson has spent her life on the East Coast and, therefore, holds a beautifully serene vision of the West in her mind. But in relocating to Hope, Montana, she discovers the hardships of the West's remote, male-centered way of lifestarting with her marriage to a drunken failure, Manley Fleetwood. The west, however, is not without the romantic aspect that Valeria hoped to find. Coming to terms with both kinds of experience, she grows into a stronger person

Doctor Nikola by Guy Boothby( Book )

3 editions published between 1896 and 1897 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce roman nous fait découvrir l'un des personnages les plus fascinants de la littérature d'aventures de l'ère victorienne : le docteur Nikola. Dans le Shanghai du début du XXe siècle, Wilfred Bruce fait la connaissance du docteur Nikola, un mystérieux occultiste. Il le suivra jusqu'au Tibet, sur les traces d'une secte de moines chinois censée détenir le secret que le docteur cherche à percer depuis des années : l'immortalité. Servi par un rythme haletant et une écriture nerveuse proche de celle des auteurs américains des années trente. Docteur Nikola nous plonge dans la magie et l'exotisme de la Chine de l'époque coloniale. Biographie[s] d'auteur[s] Né en Australie, Guy Boothby (1867-1905) fut un auteur prolifique qui s'essaya à tous les genres littéraires. Sa plus célèbre création est sans doute cet inquiétant docteur Nikola qui apparaît dans cinq de ses romans. Son style vif et alerte, son sens de l'action, et l'authentique exotisme que ses nombreux voyages lui permirent d'apporter à ses histoires font de Guy Boothby l'un des plus remarquables auteurs d'aventures de son temps, admiré par nombre de ses confrères dont le grand Rudyard Kipling
