Ecology of Threatened Semi-Arid Wetlands. by. Wetlands: Ecology, Conservation and Management (Book 2) Thanks for Sharing! You submitted the following rating and review. We'll publish them on our site once we've reviewed them. Bennett's essays cover a wide range: from the philosophy of environmentalism to the ecology of economic development; from the human impact on semi-arid lands to the ecology of Japanese forest management. This expanded paperback edition includes a new chapter on the role of anthropology in economic development.
By relating various ecological systems to the question of sustainability in arid lands, this book offers fresh directions for research and management. It provides an overview of the arid and semi-arid land situation in three major arid systems: the Negev of Israel, the Sonoran-Chiuahuan deserts of North America, and the arid lands of Australia. Fitter agrees that it is unclear whether changes in soil ecology caused by elevated CO 2 will speed up the carbon cycle or slow it down. Higher levels of CO 2 in the atmosphere could lead to a.

The Arid Land Ecology Reserve: Study Site for this book Some remnants of the original shrub-steppe remain. These areas are usually remote from water--or they were in. Drawing on the extensive experience of its expert authors, Ecology of Desert Systems is an essential guide to arid ecosystems for students looking for an overview of the field, researchers keen to learn how their work fits in to the overall picture, and those involved with environmental management of.
This book examines the problems and opportunities involved in man's use of semi-arid areas. The authors are all actively involved in research and land management in the areas discussed.
Each chapter begins with a detailed, up-to-date account of the ecology of the region (its climate, soils, vegetation, fauna and main ecological characteristics).Format: Ebook. Semi-arid Ecology. Warning: The information on this page is indicative.
The subject outline for a particular session, location and mode of offering is the authoritative source of all information about the subject for that offering. This book provides a review of the ecological adaptations - be they behavioural, physiological or morphological - of carnivores to arid environments.
Following a general introduction into aridity and arid lands in Africa, the major carnivore families are presented. Book • Authors: Stone strewn surfaces are common features in arid environments. Rivers in desert regions may be conveniently divided into those that originate in wet mountainous areas and traverse a desert and those that originate in semiarid or arid regions.
Ecology of Desert Systems challenges these conventional views. This. Unlike books that merely identify what plants and animals live in the desert, Desert Ecology is a comprehensive but accessible introduction to how these organisms live where they do. Beginning with an overview of the Intermountain, Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan Deserts, Sowell presents the topographic and the meteorologic conditions that.
Hydrology is a key influence on water security, environmental sustainability, agricultural production, energy, and transport, especially in unique environments such as arid regions and the tropics, where degradation issues on water and land can threaten the livelihoods of poor communities.

Importantly, arid regions and drylands are not necessarily hot year round, with continental deserts, for example the Gobi in Mongolia, experiencing extremely low winter temperatures.
