Physiological, Developmental and Behavioral Effects of Marine Pollution
Physiological, Developmental and Behavioral Effects of Marine Pollution

Synthesizing decades of work, but up-to-date, this book focuses on organism-level responses to pollutants by marine animals, mainly crustaceans, molluscs, and fishes. Emphasizing effects on physiological processes (feeding/digestion, respiration, osmoregulation), life-cycle (reproduction [including endocrine disruption], embryo...

Effects of Pollution on Fish: Molecular Effects and Population Responses
Effects of Pollution on Fish: Molecular Effects and Population Responses
In April l999 an article appeared in Fishing News under the headline ‘Dredging and pollution hit stocks far more than fishing’. The article reported on claims made by an environmental group that these two anthropogenic impacts are causing a far greater decline of fish stocks in the North Sea than ‘supposed overfishing’ and...
Principles of Biochemical Toxicology, Fourth Edition
Principles of Biochemical Toxicology, Fourth Edition
This leading textbook in the field examines the mechanisms underlying toxicity, particularly the events at the molecular level and the factors that determine and affect toxicity. The new edition is updated to reflect the latest research into the biochemical basis of toxicology and the growing concerns over the adverse effects of drugs,...
The Hype About Hydrogen: Fact and Fiction in the Race to Save the Climate
The Hype About Hydrogen: Fact and Fiction in the Race to Save the Climate
In his 2003 State of the Union address, President Bush seized the nation's attention with his advocacy of a "hydrogen economy," with fuel cells that produce energy and water taking the place of fossil fuels in cars that produce greenhouse gases. As Romm (Cool Companies), a former Department of Energy official in the Clinton...
Remote Sensing Image Analysis: Including the Spatial Domain (Remote Sensing and Digital Image Processing)
Remote Sensing Image Analysis: Including the Spatial Domain (Remote Sensing and Digital Image Processing)
Remote Sensing image analysis is mostly done using only spectral information on a pixel by pixel basis. Information captured in neighbouring cells, or information about patterns surrounding the pixel of interest often provides useful supplementary information. This book presents a wide range of innovative and advanced image processing methods for...
Hidden Nature: The Startling Insights of Viktor Schauberger
Hidden Nature: The Startling Insights of Viktor Schauberger
Viktor Schauberger, 1885-1958, was a radical pioneer of the study of the subtle energies in nature and the importance of living water in all natural processes. From unusually detailed observations of the natural world, he pioneered a completely new understanding of how nature works. He foresaw, and tried to warn against global waste and costly...
Future Cities: Designing Better, Smarter, More Sustainable and Secure Cities
Future Cities: Designing Better, Smarter, More Sustainable and Secure Cities

In Future Cities, three authors - futurists, urban experts and systems architects - consider how the demands of the 21st Century will reshape the places where half of the world's population lives. From the history of urban development to the challenges of climate change and terrorism, they show how technology advances have shaped cities...

Applications of Mathematics in Models, Artificial Neural Networks and Arts: Mathematics and Society
Applications of Mathematics in Models, Artificial Neural Networks and Arts: Mathematics and Society

The book shows a very original organization addressing in a non traditional way, but with a systematic approach, to who has an interest in using mathematics in the social sciences.

The book is divided in four parts: (a) a historical part, written by Vittorio Capecchi which helps us understand the changes in the relationship between...

Good Green Homes
Good Green Homes

Green. It conjures images of a meadow in spring for some, and the color of money for others. What does "green" have to do with our homes? In essence, green building-or sustainable building-means being smart about how we use energy, water, and building materials so that we can live well without needlessly damaging the environment....

This book is the first monograph on nanochemistry, giving perspectives on the present status and future possibilities in this rapidly advancing discipline....

Understanding Atmospheric Dispersion of Accidental Releases
Understanding Atmospheric Dispersion of Accidental Releases
As introduction to the subject of this document, dispersion from accidental releases encompasses many different aspects. It includes the methods of classical air pollution modeling used in estimating the dispersion of dilute air pollutants, but also encompasses the more complex physics of dense-vapor and high-momentum releases, boiling and...
Area-Wide Control of Insect Pests: From Research to Field Implementation
Area-Wide Control of Insect Pests: From Research to Field Implementation
The world population is still growing at an alarming rate, requiring ever increasing productivity and less waste in agriculture to cope with the increasing demands to satisfy food security for all humans. Alleviation of poverty is in many countries hampered by a myriad of insect pests that cause enormous economic...
