*Tóm tắt : This is the first text to deal comprehensively with ecological principles and practice in plant and animal ecology in an Australian context, with wholly Australian examples. It is an ideal reference for students throughout their undergraduate careers, and a starting point for postgraduate students and researchers. The book is structured so that it will be applicable to courses in plant and animal ecology, conservation,and natural resource management throughout Australia. There are 34 chapters, each written by experts in the field. The book is well-illustrated with figures and photos, and includes a glossary, index to scientific names, index to common names and subject index .

3959. Nhan đề: The biology of soft shores and estuaries / Colin Little Số phân loại : 577.51 C428; Đặc điểm vật lý: ix, 252Tr : minh họa ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : This book focuses on marine and estuarine soft sediments as complex and essential habitats for an astonishing variety of animals and plants whose lifestyles are intimately bound up with sediment structure. It discusses sediments as habitats first, then takes in turn the ecosystems found on sandy shores, mudflats and segrass beds, salt marshes and mangrove swamps, and life below the tidemarks. Adaptations of the organisms are fully described, and each chapter ends with a section on techniques. Later chapters discuss estuarine and lagoonal habitats, both of whoch contain primarily soft sediments, but add further complicating characteristics to those found in the sea. A discussion of estuarine food webs emphasizes the ways in which organisms interact. The book ends with a discussion of the ways in which marine and estuarine soft sediments have been abused by man, and some of the opportunities that have been taken to counteract these abuses .

Tác giả khác: Chris Frid
*Tóm tắt : increasingly clear--there has never been a more important time for students to fully grasp the fundamentals of aquatic systems. Ecology of Aquatic Systems is the ideal course companion to achieve this goal. This new edition brings together coverage of freshwater and marine systems to illustrate the principles and properties that unify aquatic systems. Using examples drawn from a wide geographical range, the book presents a broad survey of the field that acts as the ideal foundation for further study .

Tác giả khác: Lars-Anders Hansson
*Tóm tắt : Today scientists are increasingly applying modern and evolutionary theory to the understanding of freshwater ecosystems. Taking note of this trend, authors Bronmark and Hansson have compiled a comprehensive overview that summarizes these new approaches and integrates them with more traditional limnology. The result is a comprehensive, accessible resource that fully explores of the evolution of freshwater organisms, the importance of biotic interactions--including competition, predation, parasitism, and symbiosis--and community level processes such as food web interactions. The authors have also included a chapter on conservation that identifies the threats posed by human activity and possible counteractive measures .

Tác giả khác: Björn Malmqvist
*Tóm tắt : An easy-to-read, beautifully illustrated undergraduate-level introduction to fresh- and running-water biology. Each chapter includes practical information on simple studies and experiments for students to try. The text begins with the physical features that define running water (lotic) habitats then continues with organisms that inhabit these habitats, and concludes with a discussion of applied issues surrounding water use, including pollution, species diversity, and conservation. The authors outline the range of living organisms in lotic habitats, and the environmental adaptations they exhibit. They discuss population, community, and ecosystem patterns and processes, such as energy flow, nutrient cycling, migration, food webs, and community structure. Particular consideration is given to links between stream and river channels and their surrounding landscapes, to short-term and seasonal changes, and to historical and biogeographical factors. The text concludes with a section of additional practical field work activities and a list for further reading .
