  • The science of ecology and the practice of management are critical to our understanding of the Earth’s ecosystems and our efforts to conserve them. This book attempts to bridge the gap between ecology and natural resource management and, in particular, focuses on the discipline of plant ecology as a foundation for vegetation and wildlife management. It describes how concepts and approaches used by ecologists to study communities and ecosystems can be applied to their management. Guy R.

  • Diversity of plant form and life history and their distribution onto different habitats suggest that plant functions should underlie this diversity, providing tools to successfully and differentially thrive in every habitat. The knowledge of these functions is then the key to understand community and ecosystem structure and functioning, something that attracted the interest and effort of many plant ecologists trying to establish patterns of adaptive specialization in plants.

  • This is an introductory textbook on mathematical ecology bridging the subdisciplines of population ecology and ecosystem ecology. The expected reader is you: a beginning graduate student, advanced undergraduate student, or someone who thinks of themselves as a student all their lives, with a working knowledge of basic calculus and basic ecology. While this is intended as a stand-alone text, the level is such that once you have read through it, you will be able to read more advanced texts and monographs such as Ågren and Bosatta (1998) and Kot (2001) with greater depth.

  • The Fuzzy Set Theory developed by L. Zadeh (Zadeh 1965) as a possible way to handle uncertainty is particularly useful for the representation of vague expert knowledge and processing uncertain or imprecise information. The Fuzzy Set Theory is based on an extension of the classical meaning of the term "set" and formulates specific logical and arithmetical operations for processing information defined in the form of fuzzy sets and fuzzy rules.

  • From the beginnings of modern science, lakes have fulfilled a focus of attention. Doubtless, this has something to do with the lure that water bodies hold for most of us, as well as for long having been a source of food as well as water. Authors, from Aristotle to Izaak Walton, committed much common knowledge of the freshwater fauna to the formal written record, so it is still a little surprising to realise that the formal study of lakes—limnology (from the Greek word, limnos, a lake)—is scarcely more than a century in age (Forel 1895).

  • As early as the beginning of the 20th century Rudolf Diesel proposed vegetable oil as fuel for his engine.1 A short time later, before and during World War Two, vegetable oil was examined in “up-to-date” diesel engines. In 1940 first trials with vegetable oil methyl and ethyl esters were carried out in France and, at the same time, scientists in Belgium were using palm oil ethyl ester as a fuel for buses.2 In 1973, the oil crisis refocused attention on and interest for local energy sources.

  • Looking up ‘‘aquatic food web’’ on Google provides a dizzying array of eclectic sites and information (and disinformation!) to choose from. However, even within this morass it is clear that aquatic food-web research has expanded greatly over the last couple of decades, and includes a wide array of studies from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. This book attempts to bring together and synthesize some of the most recent perspectives on aquatic food-web research, with a particular emphasis on integrating that knowledge within an ecosystem framework....

  • Discussing the implications of a paradigm change in science, Allen et al. (2001) said: “A paradigm change modifies protocols, vocabulary or tacit agreements not to ask certain questions” (p. 480). If we agree with this brilliant definition, and therefore if we accept that a scientific paradigm is “a tacit agreement not to ask certain questions,” the next step is to find out why certain questions are forbidden.

In Africa in the Age of Biology, Dr James discusses Africa’s long history of scientific, technological and mathematical enterprise, from tokens of the very earliest counting by humans to the sum of knowledge brought to bear in the construction of the pyramids. But he focuses on the challenges of today, and tomorrow, which he suggests Africa’s leaders and scholars dare not overlook....
