Ainsworth & Bisby's dictionary of the fungi by G. C Ainsworth ( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This new edition, with more than 21,000 entries, provides the most complete listing available of generic names of fungi, their families and orders, their attributes and descriptive terms. For each genus, the authority, the date of publication, status, systematic position, number of accepted species, distribution, and key references are given. Diagnoses of families and details of orders and higher categories are included for all groups of fungi. In addition, there are biographic notes, information on well-known metabolites and mycotoxins, and concise accounts of almost all pure and applied aspects of the subject (including citations of important literature)." "All information has been updated as necessary since the publication of the ninth edition in 2001. In addition the tenth edition has the following new features: a completely new classification of the Kingdom Fungi based on recent multi-gene phylogenetics research; a major revision of the classification of the Basidiomycota and substantial modification of the "basal" groups; further integration or anamorphic and teleomorphic genera in the classification; enhanced distinctions between the true fungi and unrelated groups traditionally studied by mycologists; and improved information an references to publications." "This is the one essential handbook for all who work with or are interested in fungi (including lichens, slime moulds, yeasts and fungal analogues)."--BOOK JACKET
Way out of the woods : learning how to manage trees and forests ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Forests at the land-atmosphere interface by M Mencuccini ( Book )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Forest ecosystems exist at the interface between the land and the atmosphere. Understanding the properties of this planetary boundary layer is very important for a number of related disciplines. This book presents an overview of many topics that are of significance at the interface, starting at the scale of intra-leaf organelles, ranging to higher levels of organization such as communities and ecosystems. It covers topics such as stomatal functioning, large-scale processes, radiation modelling, forest meteorology and carbon sequestration. Based on proceedings of a conference to mark the retirement of Professor Paul Jarvis from the University of Edinburgh, the book contains contributions from leading international scientists. It will be of significant interest to researchers in forestry, ecology, environmental sciences and natural resources."--Jacket

A dictionary of entomology by Gordon Gordh ( )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is a comprehensive, fully cross-referenced collection of over 28,000 terms, names and phrases used in entomology, incorporating an estimated 43,000 definitions. It is the only listing which covers insect anatomy, behaviour, biology, ecology, histology, molecular biology, morphology, pest management, taxonomy and systematics. The origin, etymology, part of speech and definition of each term and phrase are all provided, including the language, meaning or root of each term and constituent parts. Where meanings have changed, or terms have been borrowed from other disciplines, the most current usage is indicated. The common names of insects, their scientific binomen and taxonomic classification are provided, with diagnoses of pest species in many cases. All insect order, suborder, superfamily, family and subfamily names are given, together with the diagnostic features of orders and families. Names of deceased entomologists, or scientists from other fields who have contributed to entomology are included, with the citation for their biography or obituary. The list of names is global, including entomologists from Asia, whose research has often been neglected by western scientists. This book is an essential reference source for all professionals and students of entomology and related disciplines."--p. [4] of cover

Below-ground interactions in tropical agroecosystems concepts and models with multiple plant components by Meine van Noordwijk ( Book )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides a synthesis of plant-soil-plant interactions from the plot to landscape scale. It focuses on the process level, which is relevant to many types of multispecies agroecosystems (agroforestry, intercropping and others). It also links basic research to practical application (and indigenous knowledge) in a wide range of systems with or without trees, and considers implications of below-ground interactions for the environment and global change issues. The contents include root architecture and dynamics, plant-soil biota interactions, soil biodiversity and food webs, water and nutrient cycling, and the necessary linkage to modelling approaches
