Linking Ecology and Ethics for a Changing World: Values, Philosophy, and Action (Repost)

Linking Ecology and Ethics for a Changing World: Values, Philosophy, and Action by Ricardo Rozzi, S.T.A. Pickett, Clare Palmer, Juan J. Armesto, J. Baird Callicott
English | PDF (True) | 2013 | 396 Pages | ISBN : 9400774699 | 6.9 MB

To comprehensively address the complexities of current socio-ecological problems involved in global environmental change, it is indispiseble to achieve an integration of ecological understanding and ethical values. Contemporary science proposes an inclusive ecosystem concept that recognizes humans as components. Contemporary environmental ethics includes eco-social justice and the realization that as important as biodiversity is cultural diversity, inter-cultural, inter-institutional, and international collaboration requiring a novel approach known as biocultural conservation. Right action in confronting the challenges of the 21st century requires science and ethics to be seamlessly integrated. This book resulted from the 14th Cary Conference that brought together leading scholars and practitioners in ecology and environmental philosophy to discuss core terminologies, methods, questions, and practical frameworks for long-term socio-ecological research, education, and decision making.

Community Science in Ecology: Case Studies of Public Participation in Ecological Research in Japan

Community Science in Ecology: Case Studies of Public Participation in Ecological Research in Japan by Yukari Suzuki-Ohno
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 217 Pages | ISBN : 9819703034 | 52.5 MB

This book introduces community science (or citizen science) projects in Japan with a focus on ecology. Environments and ecosystems that have been slowly built up over time are changing and collapsing dramatically.

Urban Biodiversity and Ecological Design for Sustainable Cities by Keitaro Ito
English | EPUB | 2021 | 373 Pages | ISBN : 4431568549 | 250 MB

This book highlights various designs for urban green spaces and their functions. It provides an interesting meeting point between Asian, European and North America specialists (researchers, planners, landscape architects) studying urban biodiversity; urban biodiversity and green space; relations between people and biodiversity. The most important feature of this book is the unique point of view from each contributor towards “the relationship between nature and people in urban areas”, in the context of the ecosystem and biodiversity in urban areas and how to manage them.

World Atlas of Freshwater Macrophytes: Dicotyledonous species I (Acanthaceae – Menyanthaceae) - Volume 1 by Tatiana Lobato-de Magalhães , Kevin Murphy , Marinus L. Otte , Eugenio Molina-Navarro
English | PDF (True) | 2024 | 1032 Pages | ISBN : 3031527488 | 183.3 MB

This book is the first volume of a compendium of the global distribution some 3500 aquatic macrophyte species occurring in inland freshwater and brackish waterbodies worldwide, highlighting aspects of their ecology including endemism, world rarity, ecozone/ macroregional occurrence, ploidy state, species age, uses, and endangered status. Although similar books exist for local regions (e.g., the Pantanal wetlands of Brazil) none provides complete and detailed information for macrophytes at global scale, so this book provides a novel resource on the distribution and ecology of macrophytes around the world.

Origin and Evolution of Caribbean Mangroves A Time-Continuum Ecological Approach

Origin and Evolution of Caribbean Mangroves A Time-Continuum Ecological Approach by Valentí Rull
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 206 Pages | ISBN : 303157611X | 67.9 MB

This book provides a comprehensive, detailed, and coherent spatio-temporal account of Caribbean mangrove evolution from its evolutionary origins to the present that is not available for any mangrove region in the world. Mangroves are intertidal wetland forests that play a crucial role in the maintenance of terrestrial and marine biodiversity, and in the functioning of global biogeochemical cycles (especially the carbon cycle). These ecosystems dominate the tropical/subtropical coasts of all continents and are among the most threatened ecosystems in the world. This book combines all temporal scales, from the geological to the ecological, to provide an integrated picture of mangrove history and the natural and anthropogenic drivers of ecological and evolutionary change. This may be useful not only for understanding the current ecological status of these emblematic ecosystems, but also for informing their conservation in the face of ongoing global change.
