Approaches to Plant Evolutionary Ecology , G.P. Cheplick


Published in: itune > Ecology,Books,Science & Nature,Life Sciences > Sustainability | Published on 23/Apr/2019 16:49

2015-07-01T07:00:00Z
Plant evolutionary ecology is a rapidly growing discipline which emphasizes that populations adapt and evolve not in isolation, but in relation to other species and abiotic environmental features such as climate. Although it departs from traditional evolutionary and ecological fields of study, the field is connected to branches of ecology, genetics, botany, conserva...[Read More]

Understanding our place in the web of life.

The disconnection between humans and nature is perhaps one of the most fundamental problems faced by our species today. The schism between us and the natural world is arguably the root cause of most of the environmental catastrophes unraveling around us. However, until we come to terms with the depths ...[Read More]

Time in Ecology , Eric Post


Published in: itune > Ecology,Books,Science & Nature,Life Sciences > Sustainability | Published on 23/Apr/2019 11:36

2019-02-26T08:00:00Z
Ecologists traditionally regard time as part of the background against which ecological interactions play out. In this book, Eric Post argues that time should be treated as a resource used by organisms for growth, maintenance, and offspring production.

Post uses insights from phenology--the study of the timing of life-cycle events--to present a theoretica...[Read More]

IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE parasites control the minds of their hosts, sending them to their destruction.
IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE parasites are masters of chemical warfare and camouflage, able to cloak themselves with their hosts' own molecules.
IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE parasites steer the course of evolution, where the majority of species are parasites.

The Nature of Design , David W. Orr


Published in: itune > Ecology,Books,Science & Nature,Life Sciences,Professional & Technical,Education,Politics & Current Events > Sustainability | Published on 23/Apr/2019 05:05

2004-10-14T07:00:00Z
The environmental movement has often been accused of being overly negative--trying to stop "progress." The Nature of Design, on the other hand, is about starting things, specifically an ecological design revolution that changes how we provide food, shelter, energy, materials, and livelihood, and how we deal with waste. Ecological design is an emerging field that a...[Read More]

Ecohouse: A Holistic Approach to Sustainable Living , Rogerio Cietto


Published in: itune > Ecology,Books,Science & Nature,Life Sciences > Sustainability | Published on 23/Apr/2019 03:22

2012-12-13T08:00:00Z
The word eco means nature (in Greek oikos means house), so an Ecohouse would be a place that respects the environment (literally, a house inside a house). It would be easy for all of us to be ecologically friendly, in complete simbiosis with nature: we just need to live the way we did 10.000 years ago, hunting, planting, and living in shelters with no water or energ...[Read More]

2008-10-08T07:00:00Z
The growth, reproduction, and geographical distribution of plants are profoundly influenced by their physiological ecology: the interaction with the surrounding physical, chemical, and biological environments. This textbook describes mechanisms that underlie plant physiological ecology at the levels of physiology, biochemistry, biophysics, and molecular biology. At ...[Read More]
