2017-11-07T08:00:00Z Many arborists learn tree work practices without fully understanding the biological and physiological principles behind them. However, outcomes for the health and longevity of trees are greatly improved when an arborist understands the science behind the care of tree root systems and crowns. In Applied Tree Biology, Drs. Hirons and Thomas draw upon their deca...[Read More]

Wer Bienen beobachtet, schaut auf einzigartige Weise dem Leben beim Leben zu. Doch auch wenn es so aussieht, als herrsche bei den Bienen vor allem anarchische Krabbelei: Sie haben einen Plan, den sie mit erstaunlichem Geschick, faszinierenden F?higkeiten und in bemerkenswerter Teamarbeit umsetzen. Wie dieses Leben in einem...[Read More]
2018-05-17T07:00:00Z Swamps and marshes once covered vast stretches of the North American landscape. The destruction of these habitats, long seen as wastelands that harbored deadly disease, accelerated in the twentieth century. Today, the majority of the original wetlands in the US have vanished, transformed into farm fields or buried under city streets.
In The Marsh Builders, Sharon ...[Read More]

2019-01-09T08:00:00Z Here we report on a 25-year long-term sequence of measures to return a deteriorated recreational urban lake, Alte Donau in Vienna to acceptable water quality. Metropolitan waters require focused ecosystem management plans and intensive in-lake efforts. We explored physico-chemical conditions, food web from viruses to fish and water birds, the sediments, the littoral...[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]
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]
