Encyclopedia of climate and weather( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 261 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
Biodiversity in a changing climate : linking science and management in conservation by Terry Louise Root( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries 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
Extinction( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 62 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

Ecology and climate research strategies and implications by Terry Louise Root( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Natural and anthropogenic global changes are associated with substantial ecological disturbances. Multiscale interconnections among disciplines studying the biotic and abiotic effects of such disturbances are needed. Three research paradigms traditionally have been used and are reviewed here: scale-up, scale-down, and scale-up with embedded scale-down components. None of these approaches by themselves can provide the most reliable ecological assessments. A fourth research paradigm, called strategic cyclical scaling (SCS), is relatively more effetive. SCS involves continuous cycling between large- and small-scale studies, thereby offering improved understanding of the behavior of complex environmental systems and allowing more reliable forecast capabilities for analyzing the ecological consequences of global changes
