Wetlands and human health by C. M Finlayson( )

15 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book addresses the complex interactions that occur between wetlands and the health and well-being of people. As wetlands provide many valuable ecosystem services and are amongst the most degraded ecosystems globally, further degradation could greatly affect the wellbeing and health of people dependent on them. Healthy wetlands are generally associated with enhanced ecosystem services and improved outcomes for human health, and unhealthy wetlands with degraded ecosystem services and poor outcomes for human health. However, the relationships can also be paradoxical with some direct benefits for human health leading to the loss of other ecosystem services, in particular regulating and supporting services, and the enhancement of others, leading to poor outcomes for human health. This results in a health paradox whereby there is a loss regulating and supporting services from steps to enhance human health. A wetland paradox also occurs when there are poor outcomes for human health as a consequence of the maintenance or enhancement of ecosystem services. In response a framework for the conceptualization of human and wetland relationships, including the paradoxical situations has been provided based on the concept of wetlands as settings for human health. This enables the trade-offs that have and will occur between wetland ecosystem services and human health to be addressed. Interventions for managing wetlands can have important implications for human health and well-being, although these may not always be recognized. While the Ramsar Convention has provided an international forum for addressing the wise use of wetlands and providing guidance for managers it has only recently considered the human health implications of wetland management. Through the policy setting provided by the Convention a set of health-related activities have been identified and in this paper mapped against the wise use guidance previously provided. ℗ℓ Tackling these problems requires genuine cross-disciplinary collaboration; a key finding of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment that considered the links between human well-being and ecosystem health. This book brings the disciplines of ecology and health sciences closer to provide a synthesis for researchers, teachers and policy makers interested in or needing information to manage wetlands and human health and well-being issues

The skin microbiome: impact of modern environments on skin ecology, barrier integrity, and systemic immune programming by Susan L Prescott( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Skin barrier structure and function is essential to human health. Hitherto unrecognized functions of epidermal keratinocytes show that the skin plays an important role in adapting whole-body physiology to changing environments, including the capacity to produce a wide variety of hormones, neurotransmitters and cytokine that can potentially influence whole-body states, and quite possibly, even emotions. Skin microbiota play an integral role in the maturation and homeostatic regulation of keratinocytes and host immune networks with systemic implications. As our primary interface with the external environment, the biodiversity of skin habitats is heavily influenced by the biodiversity of the ecosystems in which we reside. Thus, factors which alter the establishment and health of the skin microbiome have the potential to predispose to not only cutaneous disease, but also other inflammatory non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Indeed, disturbances of the stratum corneum have been noted in allergic diseases (eczema and food allergy), psoriasis, rosacea, acne vulgaris and with the skin aging process. The built environment, global biodiversity losses and declining nature relatedness are contributing to erosion of diversity at a micro-ecological level, including our own microbial habitats. This emphasises the importance of ecological perspectives in overcoming the factors that drive dysbiosis and the risk of inflammatory diseases across the life course

Located Toxicology: The Need for Alternative Methodologies to Address Toxicological Significance by Pierre Horwitz( )

1 edition published in 2002 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper looks at the methods available to evaluate claims of significance of a toxic event or substance from the different perspectives of the toxicological analyst, the government regulator and the concerned public. Using arguments from a ‘located toxicology’, we propose the need for the adoption and use of methodologies that record the claims of concerned citizens, and evaluate the content of their claims for regulatory action and response

Wetland Invertebrate Richness and Endemism on the Swan Coastal Plain, Western Australia by Pierre Horwitz( )

1 edition published in 2009 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Regional assessments of inland aquatic biota, determined from compilations of mostly descriptive and distributional data, can reveal information to justify local, regional or even global conservation priorities. In the present study, a regional assessment of the wetlands of the Swan Coastal Plain (SCP), Western Australia, was conducted to test the hypothesis that the relatively recent (in geological terms) formation of the wetlands has yielded relatively homogeneous aquatic assemblages. A compilation of aquatic invertebrate taxa from 18 studies of 66 wetlands has shown a surprisingly rich fauna (considering the comparatively small survey area and the degree of anthropogenic alteration of the SCP). Some of this richness is associated with increased sampling effort and proximity to other wetlands, and the habitat complexity and degree of permanence of the wetlands has contributed to richness, community assemblage composition, rarity and endemism patterns. Although taxonomically rich, local and regional endemism is relatively low compared with other regional assessments. The caves and the springs of the bioregion have a distinctive faunal assemblage; however, the assemblages of surface water wetlands do appear more homogeneous. Although iconic wetlands demand priorities for conservation action, management should be directed at the entire suite of wetlands to ensure wetland ecosystem integrity
