"What if we looked beyond the notion of invasive species as enemies, and instead harnessed them for beneficiall uses? Beyond the War on Invasive Species offers a bold alternative to chemical and intensive eradication efforts--a holistic, permaculture-inspired approach to managing entire ecosystems. Author Tao Orion makes a compelling case that we need to manage invasive species for beneficial uses, such as food, medicine, compost, nectar for bees, bioremediation, and more. Invasive species are too often perceived as threats, resulting in an ongoing war that unleashes a steady arsenal of bulldozers, chainsaws, and herbicides with the goal of complete destruction. Meanwhile, the colliding effects of climate change, habitat destruction, and changes in land use and management practices go overlooked as possible causes of this proliferation. Orion urges readers to look beyond the idealized notion of restoration, and to embrace nurturing practices that can create conditions in which all life can thrive." -- From back cover.
Der Band geht dem Sorgen für sich und andere nach und wirft damit einen Blick auf Care-Arbeit in ihren unterschiedlichen Bedeutungen. Als Care wird dabei neben Pflege und der Reproduktion von Arbeitskraft die Herstellung und Erhaltung von Lebewesen und deren Umwelten in einem weiten Sinn verstanden. Aus der Perspektive einer kulturanthropologischen Geschlechterforschung zeigt sich Care bzw. Für_Sorge als machtpolitisch ambivalentes Feld, in dem Zugehörigkeiten diskutiert, Orte zugewiesen und Grenzen bestimmt und in dem Ethiken und Affekte, Subjektpositionen und soziales Miteinander ausgehandelt werden.
The geology, ecology, and cultural history of kettle lakes from Maine to Montana. Lakes are a beloved part of the American landscape, and kettles are the most common type, spanning the northern part of the country from New England to the High Plains. Kettle lakes are depressions formed by meltdown of glacial ice and filled with freshwater. Unlike other kinds of lakes that have significant inlet or outlet streams, kettle lakes are natural wells tapping the groundwater table. A source of joyful relaxation and recreation for generations, kettle lakes also have historical and cultural significance. Within a few years of the 1836 publication of Ralph Waldo Emerson's Nature, a pivotal book combining nature with spirituality and religion, H enry David Thoreau had permanently linked Walden Pond—America's most famous kettle lake—to the Transcendentalist movement. Each kettle lake tells a story, and in Robert Thorson's hands their collective saga—and the threats to their health—give us crucial insight into the dangers facing our vulnerable freshwater ecosystem.
The invasive species problem will become increasingly important in the years to come. Trade, travel and tourism are rapidly globalized, and border controls are reduced. This affects natural ecosystems in which aggressive invaders may have disastrous effects. 'New' diseases affect human, animal and crop health. The Convention on Biological Diversity presents national authorities with a tall order in coping with this problem. For the first time in one volume, this book presents both ecological, biological and epidemiological aspects of invasive species, as wen as the problem of disease organisms for agriculture and human health. The book constitutes a comprehensive background to the global strategy for managing invasive alien species which now is being developed by SCOPE and UNEP.
Biological invasions are one of the major factors affecting ecosystems throughout the world. The Mediterranean Sea is one of the most dynamic marine ecosystems in the world and is subject to ongoing invasions of marine organisms. This book focuses on fish invasions of the Mediterranean and presents the latest research on this subject. This comprehensive book includes chapters written by experts on paleontology, climate change, zoogeography, genetics, parasitology, biological monitoring and conservation, as well as chapters devoted to regional and local issues of countries surrounding the Mediterranean, written by experts from those countries. The editors of this book, Dr. Daniel Golani and Brenda Appelbaum-Golani of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, have conducted ichthyological research for over three decades and have published numerous books and articles on fish invasions and biodiversity.
This highly praised new text provides superior coverage of IR history, focuses on the changing nature of foreign policy challenges, and ends with a unique "Regional Applications" section that drives home the regional nature of IR today. Written in the belief that students need to know the Cold War legacy of international relations in order ro truly understand present and future IR issues, Hastedt and Knickrehm's new text provides a historical perspective and examines how foreign policy challenges have and continue to change. The book's theme of "A Changing World" focuses on the differences between Cold War policy and post-Cold War policy as an intuitive framework for better understanding the IR issues confronting us at the beginning of the 21st century. Because so many IR issues in today's world are regional in nature, a unique Regional Applications ends the text, providing a series of chapters on various regions that will help students understand key actors and potential flashpoints of politics in the 21st Century.
