  • This volume, the first in a series, presents the findings of an ambitious project—to measure the impact of fishing on the ecosystems that make up the North Atlantic Ocean and to propose ways to mitigate that impact. The project arose from a request by Dr. Joshua Reichert, the Director of the Environment Program of the Pew Charitable Trusts, Philadelphia, to answer six specific questions about the North Atlantic: • What are the total fisheries catches from the ecosystems, including reported and unreported landings and discards at sea?...

  • Analysis of the molecular properties of proteins extracted from organisms living under extreme conditions often highlights peculiar features. We investigated by UV-visible spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography the oxidation pro-cess, promoted by air or ferricyanide, of five hemoglobins extracted from Antarctic fishes (Notothenioidei).

  • (BQ) Ebook Extraordinary animals: An encyclopedia of curious and unusual animals is an exploration of those members of the animal kingdom who possess strange and bizarre adaptations that allow them to survive in the most extreme environments, or whose complex lives can only be said to be bewildering. From the tar-baby termite to the blue whale, from the harpy eagle to the naked mole rat, these species reflect the exceptionally broad spectrum of life, showing just how diverse the animal kingdom is.

  • The choices we make in our everyday lives about our homes, transport, food and the goods we buy have impacts right across the world – from Indonesian rainforests to the Antarctic. The amount we consume has a direct effect on climate change and species loss. For example, the products we consume in the UK could be flown in from half way around the world and be made...

  • This book began its evolution in 1999 when the British Antarctic Survey, where I worked at the time, began a new research programme on the management of marine ecosystems. This programme concentrated upon the krill-based ecosystem at SouthGeorgia which has been the subject of almost continuous study since the Discovery Expeditions in the 1920s. Latterly, international efforts to understand the dynamics of this ecosystem and the wider Southern Ocean have been coordinated by the Commission for the Conservation of AntarcticMarine Living Resources (CCAMLR)....
