 McPeek, Mark A., author.

 Description
 Book — x, 454 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
 Summary

A comprehensive framework for understanding species coexistence Coexistence is the central concept in community ecology, but an understanding of this concept requires that we study the actual mechanisms of species interactions. Coexistence in Ecology examines the major features of these mechanisms for species that coexist at different positions in complex food webs, and derives empirical tests from model predictions. Exploring the various challenges species face, Mark McPeek systematically builds a model food web, beginning with an ecosystem devoid of life and then adding one species at a time. With the introduction of each new species, he evaluates the properties it must possess to invade a community and quantifies the changes in the abundances of other species that result from a successful invasion. McPeek continues this process until he achieves a multitrophic level food web with many species coexisting at each trophic level, from omnivores, mutualists, and pathogens to herbivores, carnivores, and basic plants. He then describes the observational and experimental empirical studies that can test the theoretical predictions resulting from the model analyses. Synthesizing decades of theoretical research in community ecology, Coexistence in Ecology offers new perspectives on how to develop an empirical program of study rooted in the natural histories of species and the mechanisms by which they actually interact with one another.

 Summary

"Ecohydrology is the study of the twoway interaction between the hydrological cycle and ecosystems. More broadly, it is the science of the linkages between life and water on Earth. On the one hand, the space and time variability of the hydrological cycle controls the water availability for ecosystems; on the other hand, ecosystems, especially through transpiration by vegetation, control the main pathway by which water returns to the atmosphere from land. The terrestrial water cycle also drives some of the dynamics of soil organic matter, 7 8 CHAPTER INTRO DUCTION Abiotic processes (water and energy cycles) Biotic processes (carbon and nutrient cycles, vegetation and soil microbes) 2way interaction Society Agroecosystems (60% of rainfall goes in transpiration in agricultural land Rule of thumb: 1 kg of bread requires 1 m3 of water) 2way interaction Figure 1.1: Ecohydrology is characterized by the feedbacks between hydrological and ecological processes, involving numerous biotic and abiotic components, as well as by the growing interactions with the social components, especially ftwowayg through agroecosystems. microbial biomass, and the related nutrient cycling. These in turn not only a ect the vegetation dynamics but also impact the hydraulic and thermodynamic properties of soil, thereby directly acting on the partitioning of water and energy uxes at the landatmosphere interface. The interaction between water balance and plants is responsible for some of the fundamental di erences among biomes (e.g., forests, grasslands, savannas) and for the developments of their spacetime patterns. Thus one of the rst objectives of ecohydrology is to understand the intertwined dynamics of climate, soil, and vegetation. This interaction is especially interesting in waterlimited ecosystems, where water is a limiting factor not only because of its scarcity but also because of its intermittent and unpredictable appearance. Many important practical issues depend on the quantitative understanding of the ecohydrological processes, including environmental preservation and proper management of soil and water resources. A solid scientic foundation of sustainable development and ecoagriculture must take into account the twoway interaction between biosphere and hydrosphere, as well as include a quantitative description of the human interference with these processes (see Fig. 1.1)" Provided by publisher.

 Description
 Book — xi, 409 pages : illustrations; 24 cm
 Summary

"In this learned romp of science writing, Cambridge professor Simon Conway Morris cheerfully challenges six assumptionswhat he calls 'myths'that too often pass as unquestioned truths amongst the evolutionary orthodox. His convivial tour begins with the idea that evolution is boundless in the kinds of biological systems it can produce. Not true, he says. The process is highly circumscribed and delimited. Nor is it random. This popular notion holds that evolution proceeds blindly, with no endgame. But Conway Morris suggests otherwise, pointing to evidence that the processes of evolution are "seeded with inevitabilities." If that is so, then what about mass extinctions? Don't they steer the development of life in radically new directions? Rather the reverse, claims Conway Morris. Such cataclysms simply accelerate evolutionary developments that were going to happen anyway. And what about that other evolutionary canard: the "missing link"? Plenty to choose from in the fossil record but what is persistently overlooked is that in any group there is not one but a phalanx of "missing links". Once again we underscore the nearinevitability of evolutionary outcomes. Turning from fossils to minds, Conway Morris critically examines the popular tenet that the intelligences of humans and animals basically are the same thing, a difference of degree not kind. A closer scrutiny of our minds shows that in reality an unbridgeable gulf separates us from even the chimpanzees, so begging questions of consciousness and Mind. Finally, Conway Morris tackles the question of extraterrestrials. Surely, the size and scale of the universe suggest that alien life must exist somewhere beyond Earth and our tiny siloed solar system? After all, evolutionary convergence more than hints that humanlike forms are universal. But Dr. Conway Morris has serious doubts. The famous Fermi Paradox ("Where are they?") appears to hold: Alone in the cosmosand unique, but not quite in the way one might expect."  from publisher's website.

 Summary

"Optical nonlinearity emerges from nonlinear interaction of light with matter. In this chapter, the basic concept and formulation of lightmatter interaction are discussed through a semiclassical approach. In this semiclassical treatment of the interaction between an optical field and a material, the behavior of the optical field is classically described by Maxwell's equations, but the state of the material is quantum mechanically described by a wave function that is governed by the Hamiltonian of the material" Provided by publisher.

 Summary

Microbiology is the study of the invisible world of microorganisms, organisms so small that microscopes and other special equipment are needed to directly observe them. They play a crucial role in maintaining the Earth's atmosphere and help decompose organic matter. Microbiology plays a role in a great variety of areas, including optimizing soil for agriculture, developing preservatives and pharmaceuticals, genetic engineering, and developing climate change models. The discovery of microbes was instrumental in controlling infectious disease outbreaks that had, for centuries, wiped out entire populations.

 Summary

'Any writer who can evoke the existential sadness of a lonely cockroach, or make krill thrilling, or describe a snorkelling colleague being engulfed in a "gargantuan cetacean bum detonation" is a real gift to science communication ... thoughtprovoking' Guardian Everything you ever wanted to know about how animals live together, and what that means for us Some animal societies hold a mirror up to the human world: elephants hold funerals for departed family members. Pinyon jays run collective creches. Rats will go out of their way to help a cold, wet stranger. Other lifestyles can seem intensely alien. Take locusts, surging over the land in their millions, unable to slow down for a moment because the hungry ranks behind will literally bite their legs off if they don't stay one step ahead (actually, you might know a few people like that). But no matter how offputting an animal might be, behavioural scientist Ashley Ward can usually find something worth celebrating. Travelling the world from the Serengeti to the frozen Antarctic ocean, with stops in the muddy fields and streams of his native northern Yorkshire, he brings his curious eye and infectious humour right down to their level. The result is a worldexpanding, mythbusting tour of some of nature's greatest marvels, in delightfully broadminded company.

 Gray, Norman, 1964 author.
 Cambridge, United Kingdom ; New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2022.
 Description
 Book — xvi, 213 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm.
 Summary

"This compact yet informative Guide presents an accessible route through Special Relativity, taking a modern axiomatic and geometrical approach. It begins by explaining key concepts and introducing Einstein's postulates. The consequences of the postulates  length contraction and time dilation  are unravelled qualitatively and then quantitatively. These strands are then tied together using the mathematical framework of the Lorentz transformation, before applying these ideas to kinematics and dynamics. This volume demonstrates the essential simplicity of the core ideas of Special Relativity, while acknowledging the challenges of developing new intuitions and dealing with the apparent paradoxes that arise. A valuable supplementary resource for intermediate undergraduates, as well as independent learners with some technical background, the Guide includes numerous exercises with hints and notes provided online. It lays the foundations for further study in General Relativity, which is introduced briefly in an appendix" Provided by publisher.

 Hoch, Greg, 1971 author.
 Iowa City : University of Iowa Press, 2022
 Description
 Book — xiv, 269 pages : illustrations, charts ; 21 cm
 Summary

"Description: The tallgrass prairie once stretched from Indiana to Kansas to Minnesota. Most of this land is now growing corn and soybeans. In To Find a Pasqueflower, Greg Hoch shows us that the tallgrass prairie is the most endangered ecosystem on the continent, but it's also an ecosystem that people can play an active role in and help restore. This book is written in the same style and voice as Hoch's three previous books on bird species. He blends history, culture, and science into a unified narrative of the tallgrass prairie, with an emphasis on humans' participation in its development and destruction. Over the last century and a half, people have driven the tallgrass prairie toward extinction. However, for millennia before that, the tallgrass prairie was largely maintained and expanded by people, primarily through their use of fire. Without fire and people, the tallgrass prairie would be forest. Indeed, because the ecosystem is so young, there never was a time when people weren't playing a strong role in managing both the vegetation and wildlife. There is no such thing as a "presettlement" prairie, Hoch reminds us. Tomorrow's prairies, both restorations and native remnants, will depend on the care and nurturing of conservationists and laypeople. The audience for this book is anyone who is interested in prairies, prairie restoration, or the history of science and ecology in the context of the tallgrass prairie. Hoch's is the book you read on winter evenings to get some perspective on and historical/scientific context for plans for the upcoming growing season. It gives the reader background and philosophical principles to think about before they decide on their next land management actions. Between each chapter is a short vignette that gives a more personal account of Hoch's experiences with the prairie and prairie conservation efforts. He reminds us that people and the prairie have always been intertwined, and helps us reimagine the role humans play in the natural world" Provided by publisher

 Book — xxxv, 171 pages : color illustrations ; 21 cm + 1 3D stereo viewer
 Summary

"If you go out and simply look up, everything  from the Moon to the planets to the stars to the band of the Milky Way  appears to be pasted on the twodimensional surface of the dome of the sky. Yet, the story of astronomy as a science is how, over time, astronomers have discovered the cosmos in depth. It is the story of the measurement of position and distance, and how our 2D view of the sky above us evolved into a more sophisticated comprehension of the real 3D depths of space. The distances to the stars were first measured using the parallax effect  that is, by comparing the view from opposite sides of the Earth's orbit. This is the same effect that your brain uses (comparing the views from your left and right eyes) to effortlessly give you depth perception. In this book, the authors present the most spectacular stereo images available in astronomy. (Stereo images are pairs of images of the same object, taken 6 months apart  which, as the Earth turns, means viewed from opposite sides of the Earth's orbit.) Each pair of stereo images, when viewed with a special stereo viewer (to be contained in the book itself), portrays the object in 3D. Each striking 3D picture is accompanied by a caption on the facing page, which tells the story and significance of the image in a miniessay and points out its interesting features. Rather than a random assortment of astronomical wonders, the pictures are arranged in order of their distance from Earth. The book starts out with the Moon and moves outward through planets, stars, and galaxies, finally reaching the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB), the most distant thing we can see. The distances of objects are given in light travel times  from 1.3 lightseconds for the Moon to 13.8 billion lightyears for the CMB. These distances, along with highlights of how each object was discovered and measured by astronomers, provide a framework and narrative thread for the book, which is carried forward from one caption to the next. At each stage of this outward journey, the reader will learn new and surprising facts about fascinating objects in the depths of space. The book also features an introductory Preface that outlines the story of the discovery of the universe in depth, describes the parallax effect, and provides the background and context for the forthcoming visual tour of the observable universe in 3D" Provided by publisher.

 Can we save our last, best forests? : promoting conservation through Mission Green
As a graduate student exploring the rain forests of Australia, Lowman sewed a harness from an old seat belt, gathered hundreds of feet of rope, and found a tool belt for her pencils and rulers. Up she went, into the trees, in order to be a better monitor. Over the years she planned one of the first treetop walkways, and helped create more of these bridges through the eighth continent all over the world.

 Summary

An expert astronomer explains the phenomenon. Black holes. What even are they? In brief, a black hole is a region of spacetime so curved by gravity that even light cannot escape it. Peculiar objects, and notoriously difficult to understand, black holes are a fascinating fusion of the simple and the complex. Although the mathematics of their behavior is fiendishly difficult, we can explore the subject by starting with basic principles and straightforward thought experiments. Read on to uncover what's inside a black hole, how scientists discovered this amazing phenomenon, what to do if you find yourself falling into one, andsince no one is likely to turn up and help (you'll find out why)what you need to do to escape! The author dispels common myths about black holes, provides guidance on how to win several Nobel prizes, and reveals the eventual fate of the Universe (maybe).

This is the second edition of the book which has two additional new chapters on Maxwell's equations as well as a section on properties of solution spaces of Maxwell's equations and their trace spaces. These two new chapters, which summarize the most uptodate results in the literature for the Maxwell's equations, are sufficient enough to serve as a selfcontained introductory book on the modern mathematical theory of boundary integral equations in electromagnetics. The book now contains 12 chapters and is divided into two parts. The first six chapters present modern mathematical theory of boundary integral equations that arise in fundamental problems in continuum mechanics and electromagnetics based on the approach of variational formulations of the equations. The second six chapters present an introduction to basic classical theory of the pseudodifferential operators. The aforementioned corresponding boundary integral operators can now be recast as pseudodifferential operators. These serve as concrete examples that illustrate the basic ideas of how one may apply the theory of pseudodifferential operators and their calculus to obtain additional properties for the corresponding boundary integral operators. These two different approaches are complementary to each other. Both serve as the mathematical foundation of the boundary element methods, which have become extremely popular and efficient computational tools for boundary problems in applications. This book contains a wide spectrum of boundary integral equations arising in fundamental problems in continuum mechanics and electromagnetics. The book is a major scholarly contribution to the modern approaches of boundary integral equations, and should be accessible and useful to a large community of advanced graduate students and researchers in mathematics, physics, and engineering.

80. The disappearance of butterflies [2021]
 Schmetterlinge. English
 Reichholf, Josef, author.
 Cambridge, UK ; Medford, MA : Polity Press, [2021]
 Description
 Book — x, 256 pages, 24 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations ; 24 cm
 Summary

In the last fifty years our butterfly populations have declined by more than eighty per cent and butterflies are now facing the very real prospect of extinction. It is hard to remember the time when fields and meadows were full of these beautiful, delicate creatures  today we rarely catch a glimpse of the Wild Cherry Sphinx moths, Duke of Burgundy or the even once common Small Tortoiseshell butterflies. The High Brown Fritillary butterfly and the Stout Dart Moth have virtually disappeared. The eminent entomologist and awardwinning author Josef H. Reichholf began studying butterflies in the late 1950s. He brings a lifetime of scientific experience and expertise to bear on one of the great environmental catastrophes of our time. He takes us on a journey into the wonderful world of butterflies  from the small nymphs that emerge from lakes in air bubbles to the trusting purple emperors drunk on toad poison  and immerses us in a world that we are in danger of losing forever. Step by step he explains the science behind this impending ecological disaster, and shows how it is linked to pesticides, overfertilization and the intensive farming practices of the agribusiness. His book is a passionate plea for biodiversity and the protection of butterflies.
