Discovering Indigenous Forests at Kirstenbosch Book Excerpt:

What Is Afromontane Forest? Is it indigenous to South Africa? What creatures inhabit these forests, and how do they interrelate with one another and their environment? Are these forests under threat? This delightfully illustrated field guide provides the answers to these and many other fascinating facts about the energy flows, nutrient cycles and other ecological processes of the living com-munities of the Afromontane forest habitat, explored through our own indigenous forests at Kirstenbosch. The annotated illustrations intro-duce the plants and animals at the various levels in the forest in an integrated way and bring the forests alive. So whether you are a nature enthusiast wanting general information on indigenous forests, or a hiker or tourist wanting specific information on the Kirstenbosch trails, this book is ideal. It will also be invaluable to teachers looking for locally relevant examples of the ecology of indigenous forests, and a lively and accessible resource for students researching projects.

Globalization Environmental Change and Social History Book Excerpt:

Throughout all ages, the activities of mankind have weighed heavily upon the environment. In turn, changes in that environment have favoured the rise of certain social groups and limited the actions of others. Despite this, environmental history has remained a 'blind spot' for most social and economic historians. This is to be regretted, as the various and unequal effects of environmental change often explain the strengths and weaknesses of certain social groups, irrespective of their being defined along the lines of class, gender and ethnicity. This volume brings together the expertise of social and environmental historians in an effort to assess the extent to which transnational agents changed socioecological space as a consequence of globalization since the Late Middle Ages.

Urbanization Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Challenges and Opportunities Book Excerpt:

Urbanization is a global phenomenon and the book emphasizes that this is not just a social-technological process. It is also a social-ecological process where cities are places for nature, and where cities also are dependent on, and have impacts on, the biosphere at different scales from local to global. The book is a global assessment and delivers four main conclusions: Urban areas are expanding faster than urban populations. Half the increase in urban land across the world over the next 20 years will occur in Asia, with the most extensive change expected to take place in India and China Urban areas modify their local and regional climate through the urban heat island effect and by altering precipitation patterns, which together will have significant impacts on net primary production, ecosystem health, and biodiversity Urban expansion will heavily draw on natural resources, including water, on a global scale, and will often consume prime agricultural land, with knock-on effects on biodiversity and ecosystem services elsewhere Future urban expansion will often occur in areas where the capacity for formal governance is restricted, which will constrain the protection of biodiversity and management of ecosystem services

Mycoheterotrophy Book Excerpt:

Over the course of evolution, several plant lineages have found ways to obtain water, minerals, and carbohydrates from fungi. Some plants are able exploit fungi to such an extent that they lose the need for photosynthesis. The ability of a plant to live on fungal carbon is known as mycoheterotrophy. This intriguing process has fascinated botanists for centuries, yet many aspects of mycoheterotrophy have remained elusive for a long time. Mycoheterotrophy: The Biology of Plants Living on Fungi explores the biology of mycoheterotrophs, offering general insights into their ecology, diversity, and evolution. Written by renowned experts in the field and bolstered with lavish illustrations and photographs, this volume provides a thematic overview of different aspects of mycoheterotrophy. Comprehensive and readily accessible, Mycoheterotrophy: The Biology of Plants Living on Fungi is a valuable resource for researchers and students who are interested in the process of mycoheterotrophy.
