  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    While an ever-present and familiar toxin, carbon monoxide (CO) remains the number one poison in our environment.  This silent killer is responsible for over 2,000 deaths a year in the United States alone. The public and healthcare communities need quality information about the many risks presented by carbon monoxide exposure.  Edited by a leading ...

  • Carbon and Its Domestication

    Carbon is chemically versatile and is thus the body and soul of biological, geological, ecological and economic systems. Its appropriation by humans through diversion of its biogeochemical cycle has been a mainstay of development. This domestication is characterized by a number of thresholds: control of fire, development of agriculture, expansion ...

  • Carbon Inventory Methods

    Carbon inventory requiring estimation of carbon dioxide emissions and removals in land-use categories for national greenhouse gas inventory and changes in stocks of carbon in projects aimed at climate change mitigation has become increasingly important in global efforts to address climate change. Hence, there is a need for a handbook that provides ...

  • Climate Change and Terrestrial Carbon Sequestration in Central Asia

    Bringing together current knowledge of terrestrial C sequestration in Central Asia, this book covers biophysical environments, water resources, sustainable agriculture, soil degradation, the effects of irrigation schemes on secondary salinization, soil management and its relationship to carbon dynamics; the relationship between forest management ...

  • Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling in European Forest Ecosystems

    The storage of carbon in forest ecosystems has received special attention in the Kyoto protocol of the Climate Convention, which attempts to equilibrate fossil fuel emissions with biological sinks. This volume quantifies carbon storage in managed forest ecosystems not only in biomass, but also in all soil compartments. It investigates the ...

  • Six Thousand Feet Under: Burying The Carbon Problem

    The UK is missing the opportunity to be a world leader in tackling climate change due to Government inaction.This report argues that Carbon Capture and Storage is essential to meet UK CO2 targets and deliver clean electricity and that the UK is ideally placed to spearhead a new movement to cutting carbon emissions internationally. This however is ...

  • Advances in Nitrogen Management for Water Quality

    Scientific literature provides overwhelming evidence of the importance of managing nitrogen (N) to protect water quality as well as the environment in general. The goal of this chapter is to address many of the questions concerning this subject. Enhanced N management is increasingly necessary to decrease the impacts that excessive amounts of N in ...

  • Managing Forest Ecosystems: The Challenge of Climate Change

    With climate change now charging up the political agenda, there are three issues commonly making the headlines: carbon budgets, renewable energy, and the anticipated impacts of climate change. Equally important, though currently less well covered, is the issue how these effects might be mitigated.Given the significant role that forests play in the ...
