Encyclopedia of climate and weather by Stephen Henry Schneider ( Book )
9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a multidiscipline encyclopedia set that brings together practical and scientific issues related to the modern study of weather. Scientific principles from physics, chemistry, astronomy, and ecology are applies to agriculture, forestry, recreation, aviation, shipping and human health. Coverage includes biomes, fuels, forests, oceans, glaciers and energy systems. History, political science and literature are also included. The alphabetically arranged articles vary from brief definitions to multiple columns; country and regional weather summaries are comprehensive. Some topics are treated in essays that are subdivided. A few biographies are included. Articles have bibliographies and there is a glossary, a directory of contributors, and an index. This is an excellent source and is highly recommended for middle and high school science collections
Extinction ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Some scientific studies predict that as the Earth continues to warm, up to a third of all species could go extinct by the middle of the century. This ABC News program looks at the effect of global warming on non-human life--specifically two species of frogs that used to inhabit the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve, in Costa Rica; three additional vanished frog species in Madagascar; and the severely threatened checkerspot butterfly in southern California. Commentary is provided by Alan Pounds, of the University of Miami; the American Museum of Natural History's Chris Raxworthy; and Camille Parmesan, of The University of Texas at Austin

Biodiversity in a changing climate : linking science and management in conservation ( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Building upon the rapidly-growing body of literature documenting how natural systems are responding to, and are at risk from, human-induced climate change, this book provides case-study examples of how a diverse range of species and ecological systems in California are changing with the climate. These case studies originate from multiple ecological fields (genetics, population biology, habitat studies, community ecology, landscape ecology, paleobiology) and are framed by chapters describing approaches and tools for climate-adaptation planning, reviewing climate impacts and biological responses, and encouraging the use of historical data. This framing emphasizes the need for partnerships between researchers and resource managers in addressing climate-related challenges, and highlights how communication strengthens these partnerships with 'conversations' between chapter authors and managers. Such connections help move advances in science from research reports to 'on the ground' changes that help protect species, and support all life"--Provided by publisher
