EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Wind-Borne Illness from Coastal Seas: Present and Future Consequences of Toxic Marine Aerosols explores the present and future human health consequences of marine aerosol poisons carried ashore by coastal winds. The book compiles relevant information on an interrelated toxicological, environmental sciences and public health problem that is combined with recent observations, extensive epidemiological data and case studies. It tackles this challenge with a small, interdisciplinary group of authors who dissect the underlying causes and potential remedies of increasing ill health issues on a planet that is covered by 70% seawater and subject to increasing sea spray-containing malign aerosols. The book's authors outline the historical context of the situation, discuss the importance of recognizing toxic marine aerosols as a cause of wind-borne illness, and suggest operational forecasts for avoidance of onshore, wind-borne marine toxins, and crucially, present extensive epidemiological evidence. This resource will be useful to a wide variety of toxicologists, medical doctors and environmental scientists. Contains extensive epidemiological data and case studies on aerosol forms of windborne global marine toxins Presents information from an interdisciplinary author team Argues for future operational forecasts for avoidance of onshore, windborne marine toxins

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Over de invloed van de atmosfeer op een groot aantal kleine organismen die met de lucht vervoerd worden. Velen hiervan zijn schadelijk voor de mens, voor landbouwgewassen en voor de veestapel. Het is een boek voor biologen waarin praktische en komplexe problemen over ongedierte en ziekten worden behandeld, maar ook de ekologie in het algemeen, vanuit de meteorologie. Het kombineren van kennis over weerkunde en biologie van lucht kan leiden tot verbetering in het voorspellen, registreren en bestrijden van schadelijke organismen (met de wind meegevoerd) en ziekten

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This publication aims to present a step-by-step methodological approach to assist project teams assess and incorporate climate change adaptation measures into investment projects in agriculture, rural development, and food security. While the focus of the publication is at the project level, an improved understanding of climate change impacts should also be used to incorporate climate change considerations into agriculture planning and policy at the country level. Though rural development projects include irrigation, rural infrastructure, agriculture production, and natural resource management, this report focuses mainly on irrigation infrastructure projects and agriculture production projects.

Tomorrow S Coasts  Complex And Impermanent

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book is intended as a conceptual roadmap to show how some of the numerous pieces of complex coastal systems intersect and might interact under changing future environmental regimes. It is addressed to a non-technical but environmentally literate audience that includes the lay public, policy makers, planners, engineers and academics interested in the causes and consequences of global changes as they are likely to affect coastal systems. The book also outlines some strategies for anticipating and responding to the challenges that lie ahead. The purpose is not to offer a technical treatise on how to build better numerical models or to provide the cognoscenti with new scientific details or theories. Quite on the contrary the authors aim to provide a holistic, easy-accessible overview of coastal systems and therefore use a writing style that is non-technical, nonmathematical and non-jargonized throughout. Wherever scientific terms are required to avoid ambiguity, a clear and simple definition is presented and those definitions are repeated in the glossary. The authors aim to communicate with all who care about the future of coastal environments. In Part 1, they present some underlying general “big picture” concepts that are applicable to coastal processes and coastal change worldwide. Part 2 reviews some of the more important physical, ecological and societal causes and outcomes of coastal change. A selection of case studies of some prominent and highly vulnerable coastal regions is presented in Part 3. Some strategies for facilitating and supporting collaboration among the global scientific community to enhance future coastal resilience are outlined in Part 4.

Sweetening  Bitter Sugar
Author: Clem Seecharan
Publisher:
Release Date: 2005
Pages: 675
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book is about Jock Campbell's role in the shaping of British Guiana (Guyana) towards the end of Empire. Campbell, the head of the Booker Company which owned most of the sugar plantations in colonial Guyana was a reformer whose Fabian socialist beliefs drove him to secure major benefits for sugar workers in the 1950s?'60s. Clem Seecharan explores the fascinating interplay between Campbell's programme of reforms and the doctrinaire Marxism of Guyana's charismatic politician, Cheddi Jagan. Fed by his notion of 'bitter sugar' and an unrelenting hostility to Booker, Jagan exploited the loyalty of Indian sugar workers to foment instability on the plantations and thus undermined Campbell's mission to alleviate the colony's bitter plantation legacy. Seecharan provides a rigorous analysis of Campbell - a complex, progressive contradictory and passionate man - and his work in turbulent British Guiana, marked by nationalist stirrings, mobilisation doe decolonisation, the fragmenting of Jagan's nationalist coalition and descent into racial hatred and violence. Sweetening Bitter Sugar is part biography, part history and politics. It also encompasses ethnicity, trade unionism, agricultural and technological innovation and health, housing and social welfare reforms. It is an outstanding, elegantly written study in modern Caribbean historiography.
