2012-01-12T08:00:00Z Provides concise, yet authoritative descriptions of the most common techniques used to study wild carnivores and to conserve and manage their populations within increasingly human-dominated landscapes.
2017-05-31T07:00:00Z With more than 15,000 species, nearly a quarter of the total number of vertebrate species on Earth, freshwater fishes are extremely varied. They include the largest fish species, the beluga at over 7 meters long, and the smallest, the Paedocypris at just 8 millimeters, as well as the carnivorous, such as the piranha, and the calm, such as the Chinese algae eater. Ce...[Read More]

2012-09-13T07:00:00Z Renowned naturalist Roger Lovegrove has travelled to the world's remotest islands, from the South Seas to the Arctic Circle. They are beautiful, dangerous, and inspiring. Here he tells the story of twenty; each a self-contained habitat with a delicately-balanced ecosystem, and each its tales of humans who have settled, despoiled, or cared for them.
2011-06-09T07:00:00Z All life on earth occurs in natural assemblages called communities. Community ecology is the study of patterns and processes involving these collections of two or more species. Communities are typically studied using a diversity of techniques, including observations of natural history, statistical descriptions of natural patterns, laboratory and field experiments, a...[Read More]
2009-06-02T07:00:00Z Ecology is more quantitative and theory-driven than ever before, and A Primer of Ecology with R combines an introduction to the major theoretical concepts in general ecology with a cutting edge open source tool, the R programming language. Starting with geometric growth and proceeding through stability of multispecies interactions and species-abundance distributions...[Read More]
1994-03-10T08:00:00Z Concerns about the increasing greenhouse gases in our atmosphere and the resulting global effects have received high visibility in the general media as well as scientific journals. These concerns have been translatedinto several projects from the international scientific community-projects aimed to better understand the processes of climate and how these changes imp...[Read More]
