  • Activated Sludge MOP OM-9 2nd Edition

    Newly revised - peer reviewed -- the complete authority! This second edition of Activated Sludge,MOP OM-9, represents the most complete information source for the activated sludge process. Well-established design standards based on empirical data have evolved over the years. Despite these advances, poor process performance can still be present problems for many plants. The objective of this ...

  • Mosses, liverworts, and hornworts : status survey and conservation action plan for bryophytes

    Bryophytes are of great importance in their ecosystems and for human well-being. They stabilise soil crust through colonisation of bare grounds and rocks; they are essential in nutrient recycling, biomass production, and carbon fixing; they control water through an effective retention mechanism; and they have economic value as peat for fuel, horticulture, oil absorption, and as sources of a wide ...

  • 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 interaction between the carbon and nitrogen cycles by ...

  • Macrophytes in Aquatic Ecosystems: From Biology to Management

    Macrophytes and macrophytes ecology have gained an added importance with the introduction of, and legal requirement to implement, the European Water Framework Directive. This reflects the valuable role that aquatic plant communities play in assessing the ecological status of water bodies. Significant changes in the status and general abundance of these communities has been recorded in the last ...

  • Estuarine Nutrient Cycling: The Influence of Primary Producers

    It is a well-known fact that eutrophication of coastal waters causes significant changes in the species composition of the primary producers. Usually a shift from an ecosystem dominated by sea grasses or large brown algae to an ecosystem dominated by fast-growing green algae or phytoplankton is observed. While this shift has been documented in a number of research papers and books, the ...

  • Chemical Elements in Plants and Soil: Parameters Controlling Essentiality

    Earlier works on plant essential elements have revealed a series of complicated, counter-intuitive relationships among various chemical elements in different plant species, due to both unlike usage of certain elements in plants and to different carriers effecting resorption and transport. In an attempt to provide a more coherent theory behind plant mineral nutrition, this groundbreaking book ...
