Dark Pedagogy: Education, Horror and the Anthropocene (Palgrave Studies in Education and the Environment)
Dark Pedagogy: Education, Horror and the Anthropocene (Palgrave Studies in Education and the Environment)
Dark pedagogy explores how different perspectives can be incorporated into a darker understanding of environmental and sustainability education. Drawing on the work of the classic horror author H.P. Lovecraft and new materialist insights of speculative realism, the authors link Lovecraft’s ‘tales of the horrible’ to the current...
Modern Soil Microbiology, Third Edition
Modern Soil Microbiology, Third Edition

The living soil is crucial to photosynthesis, biogeochemical cycles, global food production, climate change, biodiversity, and plant and animal health. In the past decade, scientists have made significant advances in soil microbiology research. While the basic principles are now better understood, knowledge has been forthcoming on...

Plant Growth and Climate
Plant Growth and Climate

Evidence grows daily of the changing climate and its impact on plants and animals. Plant function is inextricably linked to climate and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. On the shortest and smallest scales, the climate affects the plant’s immediate environment and so directly influences physiological processes. At larger scales,...

Supervised and Unsupervised Ensemble Methods and their Applications (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Supervised and Unsupervised Ensemble Methods and their Applications (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
The rapidly growing amount of data, available from different technologies in the field of bio-sciences, high-energy physics, economy, climate analysis, and in several other scientific disciplines, requires a new generation of machine learning and statistical methods to deal with their complexity and heterogeneity. As data collections becomes...
Frommer's Portugal (Frommer's Complete)
Frommer's Portugal (Frommer's Complete)

Centuries ago, Portugal was a pioneer of worldwide exploration. Until recently, however, it was never as successful in attracting visitors to its own shores. Outside of greater Lisbon, the Algarve, and the island of Madeira, Portugal remained unknown and undiscovered by the mainstream visitor for many decades.

Today’s...
