Von verletzten Seelen und unerfüllter Sehnsucht -Peter Cameron erzählt von Menschen, die nach Nähe suchen. Coral Glynn kommt als Pflegerin in ein englisches Landhaus, dessen seltsame Atmosphäre geprägt ist von einem wortkargen Junggesellen und einer rätselhaften Haushälterin. Zwischen den Personen entspinnt sich eine Geschichte, aufgeladen mit versteckter Begierde und verdeckter Aggression. Ein Roman voll irritierender Spannung wie ein Film von Alfred Hitchcock. Als die Krankenschwester Coral Glynn in Hart House eintrifft, verwandelt der Dauerregen die Wiesen um das düstere Herrenhaus langsam in Seen. Die junge Pflegerin seiner Mutter versetzt den vom Krieg gezeichneten Major Hart in eine Erregung, der er nur linkisch Ausdruck zu geben vermag. Nach dem Tod der Mutter flüchtet sich Hart in einen hastigen Heiratsantrag, um Coral zu halten. Doch der Haushälterin Mrs Prence missfällt die Aussicht auf eine neue Hausherrin. Als im nahen Wald ein bizarres Verbrechen geschieht, sieht sie ihre Chance gekommen. Peter Cameron erzählt mit meisterhafter Lakonie von Menschen und ihrer rätselhaften Doppelbödigkeit, gruppiert um ein ungleiches Paar, das nicht zueinander finden kann.

Coral Glynn arrives at Hart House, an isolated manse in the English countryside, early in the very wet spring of 1950, to nurse the elderly Mrs. Hart, who is dying of cancer. Hart House is also inhabited by Mrs. Prence, the perpetually disgruntled housekeeper, and Major Clement Hart, Mrs. Hart's war-ravaged son, who is struggling to come to terms with his latent homosexuality. When a child's game goes violently awry in the woods surrounding Hart House, a great shadow—love, perhaps—descends upon its inhabitants. Like the misguided child's play, other seemingly random events—a torn dress, a missing ring, a lost letter—propel Coral and Clement into the dark thicket of marriage. A period novel observed through a refreshingly gimlet eye, Coral Glynn explores how quickly need and desire can blossom into love, and just as quickly transform into something less categorical. Borrowing from themes and characters prevalent in the work of mid-twentieth-century British women writers, Peter Cameron examines how we live and how we love—with his customary empathy and wit.

El Niño is a meteorologic/oceanographic phenomenon that occurs sporadically (every few years) at low latitudes. It is felt particularly strongly in the eastern Pacific region, notably from the equator southwards along the coasts of Ecuador and Peru. The El Niño is a component of the ENSO (El Niño Southern Oscillation) which accentuates the intimate and causal connection between atmospheric and marine processes. Obvious manifestations of El Niño in the eastern Pacific are anomalous warming of the sea; reduced upwelling; a marked decline in fisheries, and high rainfall with frequent flooding. The 1982/83 El Niño was exceptionally severe, and was probably the strongest warming of the equatorial Pacific Ocean to occur during this century. The warming was intense and spread over large parts of the Pacific Ocean and penetrated to greater depths than usual. Many eastern Pacific coral reefs that had exhibited uninterrupted growth for several hundred years until 1983 were devasted by the disturbance and are now in an erosional mode. Marine species were adversely affected. The consequent depletion of the plant food base resulted in significant reductions in stocks of fish, squid etc. This led to a mass migration and near-total reproductive failure of marine birds at Christmas Island. Emphasis in this volume is placed on disturbances to benthic communities; littoral populations; terrestrial communities and extratropical regions.

This book provides a unique perspective on the destruction - both natural and human-caused - of coral reef ecosystems. Reconstructing the ecological history of coral reefs, the authors evaluate whether recent dramatic changes are novel events or part of a long-term trend or cycle. The text combines principles of geophysics, paleontology, and marine sciences with real-time observation, examining the interacting causes of change: hurricane damage, predators, disease, rising sea-level, nutrient loading, global warming and ocean acidification. Predictions about the future of coral reefs inspire strategies for restoration and management of ecosystems. Useful for students and professionals in ecology and marine biology, including environmental managers.
