Forest soils form the foundation that underpins the existence of all forests. This book encapsulates soil ecology and functioning in northern forests, focusing on the effects of human activity and climate change. The authors introduce the fundamental principles necessary for studying forest soils, and explain the functioning and mutual influence of all parts of a forest soil ecosystem. A chapter is dedicated to each of soil acidity and heavy metal pollution, elevated carbon dioxide, nitrogen deposition and climate change, highlighting the most important anthropogenic factors influencing forest soil functioning and how these soils are likely to respond to environmental change. With its unique view of the functioning of the soils found under temperate and boreal forests in today's rapidly changing world, this book is of interest to anyone studying forestry and forest ecology in European, North American and North Asian contexts.
This volume comprises a selection of original contributions presented at a workshop held in Montpellier, France, in June 1997. The two main objectives of the workshop were, firstly, to bring together what is understood about the processes underlying agroforestry practice, and, secondly, to provide a forum to explore relevant models and modelling approaches. The workshop was also able to play a role in examining the agroforestry systems encountered in temperate and Mediterranean areas, including both traditional and more innovative agroforestry practices. The main aspects discussed were: ecological interactions amongst components, environmental impact, economics and policy modelling.
In the fall of 2012, Johnny Manziel constructed the greatest freshman season the world of college football had ever seen. The young quarterback shattered long-standing records, upset Alabama in a star-making performance, became the first ever freshman to win the Heisman Trophy and lifted the football program at Texas A&M onto the stage of the elite. In an instant, Manziel became one of America's most popular athletes. Then the backlash came. Ridiculed for his use of social media and pounded by an unforgiving public for living life as he saw fit, the quarterback became a flashpoint for criticism and scorn. The controversy created an environment Manziel was unsure he could survive. Johnny Sophomore is the story of an extraordinary talent going through the most anticipated season in college football history. From a summer engulfed in scandal, to the season of hope that followed, this book offers a candid and vivid account of Manziel's ascent into becoming one of the greatest amateur quarterbacks of all time. With entertaining prose, Johnny Sophomore covers the season that witnessed Manziel grace the cover of Time magazine, battle Alabama and Auburn in two of the year's most thrilling games, and reminded everyone why he was the best player in college football by leading the heart stopping comeback against Duke on New Year's Eve.
Headlines continue to blare news of climate change, tangential catastrophic events, and dwindling energy resources. Written by respected practitioners, and geared to practitioners and students, Environmental Hydrogeology, Second Edition explores the role that hydrogeology can play in solving challenging environmental problems.
New in the Second Edition:
Comprehensive Coverage from Trusted Experts
The authors provide a complete introduction to the fast-growing and evolving field of environmental hydrogeology and its future. The second edition includes completely updated material and select new case studies. Matching the caliber of coverage found in the previous edition, the authors explore topics such as the geological aspects of disposal sites, surface water hydrogeology, groundwater hydrology and wells, environmental impacts and the hydrological system, and more. They also include types, sources, and properties of waste products, and propose waste management programs for groundwater protection.
Explore Applications and Solutions
Looming threats such as climate change, water pollution, acid rain, and air pollution extend beyond national boundaries and span the gaps between continents. An in-depth understanding of hydrogeology will be necessary to resolve these problems. Focusing on science rather than the regulations of any particular jurisdiction, the authors explore a variety of solutions and practical applications to issues such as groundwater recharging and protection.
