This book is based on many case studies in the broad area of ecological studies and is derived from numerous sources originating from several countries. The book begins with discussions on morphology, stand structure, competition, mass and water balance at the stand level of vegetation as well as mineral cycles. A section deals with disturbances and management of agricultural as well as semi-natural systems. With the input of several authors, zoologists, botanists and geographers, detail is given to the eutrophication and pollution in terrestrial ecosystems. Included as well are discussions on the carbon cycle as it relates to current climate change and modern methods of remote sensing and geographical modelling. The book concludes with a chapter on urban and landscape ecology. The main feature of this book is that it includes most methods and tasks of modern ecology using case studies and incorporating all levels of integration from single plants and animals to populations and ecosystems.

Seeds: Ecology, Biogeography, and Evolution of Dormancy and Germination provides a working hypothesis of the ecological and environmental conditions under which carious kinds of seed dormancy have developed. It also presents the seed germination of morethan 3500 species of trees, shrubs, vines, and herbaceous species.

Das Buch gibt eine grundlegende Einführung in die zonale Gliederung der Erde nach natur- und agarräumlichen Aspekten. Das hier vorgestellte Konzept zur erdräumlichen Gliederung und inhaltlichen Fassung der Zonen geht neue Wege und berücksichtigt moderne ökologische Untersuchungen. Die Darstellung der Böden erfolgt nach dem jüngsten Stand der Bodenklassifikation und bietet damit auch wichtige Informationen zur globalen Differenzierung nach Nutzungspotentialen. Der Festlandbereich wird in Ökozonen unterteilt. Dem regionalen Teil geht ein allgemeiner Teil voraus, in dem wichtige Begriffe und Methoden der Ökosystemforschung vorgestellt werden. Ein eigenes Kapitel widmet sich dem Klimawandel und dessen Einfluss auf die ökozonale Gliederung der Erde. Die Kapitel behandeln jeweils die Hauptabschnitte: - Verbreitung - Klima - Relief und Gewässer - Böden - Vegetation und Tierwelt - Landnutzung

Umweltprobleme nehmen kontinuierlich zu und werden komplexer! Die Landschaftsökologie beleuchtet die vielschichtige Problematik und zeigt Lösungen auf. Der integrative Ansatz in der Landschaftsökologie gewinnt vor dem Hintergrund zahlreicher und komplexer Umweltprobleme immer mehr an Bedeutung. Dieses Lehrbuch liefert einen umfassenden Überblick über die Entwicklung der landschaftsökologischen Ansätze und Methoden. Die Landschaftsökologie als interdisziplinäres Forschungsfeld ist vielschichtig und nach vielen Seiten offen. Die 5. Auflage des Lehrbuchklassikers wurde komplett neu bearbeitet und orientiert sich am state of the art. Es gibt sowohl eine europäische und nordamerikanische Landschaftsökologie als auch eine eher geographisch-raumforscherisch und eine biogeographisch-biologisch ausgerichtete Landschaftsökologie. Dieser konzeptionellen Vielfalt entspricht die Zentrierung auf die Begriffe Ökologie und Ökosystem, die im Mittelpunkt aller Kapitel stehen. Forschungsbeispiele aus verschiedenen Bereichen spannen den Bogen zur Praxis. Die Landschaftsökologie ist ein gleichermaßen hochaktuelles wie spannendes Thema, das für Studierende vieler Fachrichtungen das Bewusstsein für den nachhaltigen und bewussten Umgang mit der Landschaft schärft und den Blick über den Tellerrand öffnet.

This book offers authoritative contributions by world experts actively working on different aspects of phototrophic prokaryotes. Providing up-to-date information in this rapidly advancing field, it covers the range of topics that are currently the focus of research with this group of organisms. As essentially single-celled organisms, phototrophic prokaryotes process many environmental signals and use this information to optimize their metabolism, growth rate, DNA replication and cell division. Phototrophic prokaryotes are collectively of great interest for a number of different fundamental and applied perspectives and have long served as models for understanding such basic fundamental biological processes as photosynthesis and respiration. On an ecological/environmental level they are extremely important, being the most abundant photosynthetic organisms on earth and responsible for the majority of the primary productivity in the oceans. They also hold great promise as biotechnological catalysts, being able to couple solar energy conversion through photosynthesis and carbon fixation to the production of biofuels, commodity chemicals and neutraceuticals. The book is recommended to advanced students and scientists dealing with life sciences, especially in genetics, microbiology and molecular biology.

One of the most important of the world's ecosystems, the tropical rain forest is rapidly being converted to other uses, yet it is a poorly known and under-utilized natural resource. This volume is based on a modern ecological examination of tropical forests and treats both basic and applied aspects. Structural features are dealt with first, including the taxonomic and physical-chemical organisation of forests. Next is a section on the function of forests which considers production, nutrient cycling, decomposition processes, succession, trophic dynamics and reproductive biology. The behavioral and physiological phenomena underlying forest structure and function are then considered and, finally, some of the most important applied aspects are examined, including the production of timber, rates of exploitation and loss of forests, conservation, traditional human use of forests and disease in tropical forests.

This book provides a fundamental introduction to the ecological zones of the geosphere. Nine terrestrial ecozones have been distinguished and described in individual chapters with respect to: distribution, climate, relief/hydrology, soil vegetation/animal life and land use. The first chapter provides the reader with a general introduction to each subject area. This edition has been completely revised and updated. Many new Anglo-American ecological studies are included. The book also includes more than 70 new figures and tables and detailed maps on global agricultural regions and soil classification. Another new feature is the discussion of the correlation between northern ecosystems and the carbon dioxide balance in the global atmosphere.

The use of aromatic plants has been practised since ancient times as is evidenced by records of Chinese, Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Greek and Roman origin; recent findings in Pakistan prove that it goes as far back as 5000 years. Accordingly, the importance and value ascribed to them were always high. Either as a medicine, a foodstuff, a seasoning, a cosmetic or an element of religious rituals the aromatic plant was indispensable. It is not to be forgotten that desire tor the riches of India - spices among which - and the struggle to monopolize the trade of the latter con tributed to the opening of new sea routes, discovering of continents and altering the picture of the known world. With the advent of modern civilization, characterized by scientific and technological development which dIverted estimation and consumption towards artificial products, aromatic plants experienced a temporary de cline of use retaining, however, theIr importance In sectors such as the culinary art and cosmetics industry.
