  • Biotic Homogenization

    Biological homogenization is the dominant process shaping the future global biosphere. As global transportation becomes faster and more frequent, it is inevitable that biotic intermixing will increase. Unique local biotas will become extinct only to be replaced by already widespread biotas that can tolerate human activities. This process is ...

  • Sampling, Standards, and Homogeneity

    Eleven papers treat the problems of sampling, homogeneity and standard reference materials and how they affect the ...

  • Compression Testing of Homogeneous Materials and Composites

    The purpose of this book is to present further insights into the behavior of metals, ceramics, and composites when subjected to compression loads. 17 papers have been divided among four major subject categories: • Large Deformation Studies• Brittle Materials• Composite Materials• Compression ...

  • Wavefield Inversion

    This book provides an up-to-date presentation of a broad range of contemporary problems in inverse scattering involving acoustic, elastic and electromagnetic waves. Descriptions will be given of traditional (but still in use and subject to on-going improvements) and more recent methods for identifying either:a) the homogenized material parameters ...

  • Applied Micromechanics of Porous Materials

    Poromechanics is the mechanics of porous materials and is now a well established field in many engineering disciplines, ranging from Civil Engineering, Geophysics, Petroleum Engineering to Bioengineering. However, a rigorous approach that links the physics of the phenomena at stake in porous materials and the macroscopic behaviour is still ...

  • Indigenous Peoples' food systems: the many dimensions of culture, diversity and environment for nutrition and health

    Today, globalization and homogenization have replaced local food cultures. The 12 case studies presented in this book show the wealth of knowledge in indigenous communities in diverse ecosystems, the richness of their food resources, the inherent strengths of the local traditional food systems, how people think about and use these foods, the ...

  • Design & Nature IV

    Design in engineering and science has often been inspired by nature. This has been more evident in recent years, after a period during which our civilization thought in terms of taming rather than working in harmony with nature. The consequences of that approach are still with us and have resulted in a world increasingly homogenized, lacking in ...

  • Cause and Prevention of Clogging of Wells Abstracting Groundwater from Unconsolidated Aquifers

    Part of Groundwater Set - Buy all six books and save over 30% on buying separately!  Groundwater serves many purposes. It is a source of public and private drinking water, it is utilized as an industrial feedstock and it is used in agriculture for irrigation and cattle watering. The abstraction of groundwater also serves many civil engineering ...

  • Regionalization of Watersheds

    Design of water control structures, reservoir management, economic evaluation of flood protection projects, land use planning and management, flood insurance assessment, and other projects rely on knowledge of magnitude and frequency of floods. Often, estimation of floods is not easy because of lack of flood records at the target sites. Regional ...

  • Investing in Cultural Diversity and Intercultural Dialogue

    This report analyzes all aspects of cultural diversity, which has emerged as a key concern of the international community in recent decades, and maps out new approaches to monitoring and shaping the changes that are taking place. It highlights, in particular, the interrelated challenges of cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue and the way ...

  • The New Middle Classes

    The new middle classes of developing countries are held responsible for boosting extremely resource-intensive lifestyles beyond the OECD-world thus thwarting ongoing efforts to attain a more sustainable future. But how homogeneous are their consumption patterns and why should not globalization include the extension of environmental concern, ...

  • Macroscale Models of Flow Through Highly Heterogeneous Porous Media

    This book is a first attempt to develop the hydrodynamic theory of upscaling for complex flows through highly heterogeneous porous media. The basic consequence of high heterogeneity is the change of the equation type after homogenization that is associated, first of all, with the appearance of various non-local phenomena on the macroscale. ...

  • Geo-Spatial Technologies in Urban Environments

    This book expands the current frame of reference of remote sensing and geographic information specialists to include an array of socio-economic and related planning issues. Using remotely sensed data, the project explores the efficacy and policy implications of new approaches toward analyzing data (i.e., homogeneity indices), integrates approaches ...

  • Catalytic Activation and Functionalisation of Light Alkanes

    Light alkanes tend to be resistant to many forms of activation. The horizontal approach of the present book covers homogeneous, heterogeneous and biological catalysis, thus allowing readers to gain an awareness of progress and ideas in research areas different from their own. The book contains both general chapters, giving an overview of the ...

  • Applications of Continuum Damage Mechanics to Fatigue and Fracture

    The first publication of its kind to introduce state-of-the-art applications of damage mechanics to fatigue and fracture issues in broad classes of materials. 13 peer-reviewed papers from the world's leading researchers in the field cover the following comprehensive areas: Damage Mechanics of Composites -- 6 papers deal with varying aspects of ...

  • Fast Reactions in Energetic Materials

    Under the title Energetic Materials, the author considers nearly all important homogeneous and heterogeneous systems such as solid and liquid explosives, pyrotechnic substances, mixtures used in combustion synthesis and all components of present rocket fuels. Since the combustion and explosion of these materials are greatly influenced by the ...

  • Reaction-Transport Systems

    This book is an introduction to the dynamics of reaction-diffusion systems, with a focus on fronts and stationary spatial patterns. Emphasis is on systems that are non-standard in the sense that either the transport is not simply classical diffusion (Brownian motion) or the system is not homogeneous. A important feature is the derivation of the ...

  • Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics, 28th Volume

    Features the latest trends in fracture mechanics research from the world's leading scientists and engineers in the field. In addition to a comprehensive four decade review of merging fatigue and fracture mechanics concepts, there are 36 papers that cover the following areas: General Topics -- 7 papers cover areas ranging from fiber surface ...

  • Turbulence in Fluids

    This is the 4th edition of a book originally published by Kluwer Academic Publishers. It is an exhaustive monograph on turbulence in fluids in its theoretical and applied aspects, with many advanced developments using mathematical spectral methods (two-point closures like the EDQNM theory), direct-numerical simulations, and large-eddy simulations. ...

  • Stability of Life on Earth

    In Stability of Life on Earth, Professor Kondratyev and his team show that the concept of biotic regulation is of fundamental importance in solving a wide range of environmental and other problems. They put forward a new approach to the solution of old environmental problems. Beginning with a look at the geographic environment and structural units ...
