The biology of squat lobsters( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Squat lobsters of the superfamilies Chirostyloidea and Galatheoidea are highly visible crustaceans on seamounts, continental margins, shelf environments, hydrothermal vents and coral reefs. About 1000 species are known. They frequently feature in deep-sea images taken by submersibles and are caught in large numbers by benthic dredges. Some species are so locally abundant that they form 'red tides'. Others support a variety of important fisheries. The taxonomy of squat lobsters has been intensively studied over the past few decades, making them one of the best known deepwater crustacean groups
Living waters : ecology of animals in swamps, rivers, lakes and dams by Nick Romanowski( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wetlands are often seen as the ultimate symbol of beauty and tranquillity, their clear waters sheltering mysterious animals in a world where change is gentle and slow, from dragonflies skimming above their own reflections to the fishes glimpsed briefly below. Yet Australian wetlands are among the most varied and changeable habitats found anywhere, and the many creatures that live out their lives in and around water are superbly adapted to some of the most unpredictable ecosystems in the world. This book follows the diverse common themes and patterns that link inland waters from Tasmania to the tropics. It shows how cycles of change, the ways that different wetland animals travel through and between wetlands, and the interactions of the animals themselves create an ever-changing ecological kaleidoscope. Drawing on what is known of the biology, ecology and even the genetics of many of the most abundant, widespread and successful groups of animals, the author shows similarities to wetlands in other parts of the world, as well as some of the more extreme environments and specialised animals that are unique to this continent." --Publisher description
Biodiversity and environmental change : monitoring, challenges and direction by Emma Burns( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long-term ecological data are critical for informing long-term trends in biodiversity and trends in environmental change. The Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) is a major initiative of the Australian Government and one of its key areas of investment is to provide funding for a network of longterm ecological research plots around Australia (LTERN). This book highlights some of the temporal changes in the environment and/or in biodiversity that have occurred in different ecosystems, ranging from tropical rainforests, wet eucalypt forests and alpine regions through to rangelands and deserts. Many important trends and changes are documented and they often provide new insights that were previously poorly understood or unknown. These data are precisely the kinds of data so desperately needed to better quantify the temporal trajectories in the environment and biodiversity in Australia

Guidelines for evaluating water in pit slope stability by John Read( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guidelines for Evaluating Water in Pit Slope Stability is a comprehensive account of the hydrogeological procedures that should be followed when performing open pit slope stability design studies. Created as an outcome of the Large Open Pit (LOP) project, an international research and technology transfer project on the stability of rock slopes in open pit mines, this book expands on the hydrogeological model chapter in the LOP project's previous book Guidelines for Open Pit Slope Design (Read & Stacey, 2009; CSIRO Publishing). The book comprises six sections which outline the latest technology and best practice procedures for hydrogeological investigations. The sections cover: the framework used to assess the effect of water in slope stability; how water pressures are measured and tested in the field; how a conceptual hydrogeological model is prepared; how water pressures are modelled numerically; how slope depressurisation systems are implemented; and how the performance of a slope depressurisation program is monitored and reconciled with the design. Guidelines for Evaluating Water in Pit Slope Stability offers slope design practitioners a road map that will help them decide how to investigate and treat water pressures in pit slopes. It provides guidance and essential information for mining and civil engineers, geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists and hydrogeologists involved in the investigation, design and construction of stable rock slopes
Resource recovery from wastewater: a research agenda : by Stewart Burn, Tim Muster, Anna Kaksonen, Grace Tjandraatmadja, CSIRO by Stewart Burn( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally wastewater treatment involved the removal of pollutants from wastewater to allow it to be discharged to the environment. This initially concentrated on carbon removal, but as environmental requirements became more stringent it was expanded to cover nitrogen and phosphorus removal. With increasing energy costs, more stringent environmental discharge limits and greater implementation of water sensitive urban design the economic viability of recovering water, energy and resources from wastewater is being considered more seriously. There are many examples worldwide of wastewater reuse and the methodologies are well known for the recovery of water which represents the most valuable resource in wastewater. On the contrary, the widespread application of energy, nitrogen and phosphorus recovery is just beginning to gain traction. A range of technological options for recovery of resources from wastewater are discussed in this report and in order of recovered value they include: 1) energy from methane capture, 2) direct phosphorus recovery, and 3) biosolids with improved phosphorus bioavailability. At this stage it is considered that the recovery of nitrogen via ammonia requires a step-change in technology for energy-efficient capture. Anaerobic wastewater treatment and more efficient anaerobic digestion of sludge offers major opportunities to improve the energy efficiency of the wastewater sector and to decrease biosolids levels, especially if additional sources of carbon can be included in the digestion process. However this raises the issue of the biologically un-available (refractory) carbon and how it can be converted to make it biologically available

Ecology of Australian temperate reefs : the unique South by S. A Shepherd( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecology of Australian Temperate Reefs presents the current state of knowledge of the ecology of important elements of southern Australian sub-tidal reef flora and fauna, and the underlying ecological principles. Preliminary chapters describe the geological origin, oceanography and biogeography of southern Australia, including the transitional temperate regions toward the Abrolhos Islands in the west and to Sydney in the east. The book then explains the origin and evolution of the flora and fauna at geological time scales as Australia separated from Antarctica; the oceanography of the region, including principal currents, and interactions with on-shelf waters; and the ecology of particular species or species groups at different tropic levels, starting with agae, then the ecological principles on which communities are organized. Finally, conversation and management issues are discussed

Incident management in Australasia : lessons learnt from emergency responses( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Incident Management in Australasia presents lessons learnt from managing major incidents at regional and state levels. It is not an academic work. Rather, it is a collection of stories from professionals on the ground and others who subsequently reviewed the events and gained significant knowledge and understanding through that process. Some stories are personal, capturing emotional impact and deep reflection, and others are analytical, synthesising the findings of experience and inquests. All the stories relate to managing operational events and capture knowledge that no one person could gain in a single career. This book builds on current industry strategies to improve emergency responses. It will assist incident managers and those working at all levels in incident management teams, from Station Officer to Commissioner. It is highly readable and will also be of interest to members of the public with an appreciation for the emergency services --Publisher description
Mining in ecologically sensitive landscapes by Mark Tibbett( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mining in Ecologically Sensitive Landscapes explores the interface between geology and botany, and mining and conservation. Many areas of unusual geology that contain ore-bearing bodies also support unique ecological communities of plants and animals. Increasing demand to exploit rich mineral deposits can lead to a conflict between mining and conservation interests in such landscapes. This book brings together experts in the field of mining and conservation to grapple with this pressing issue and to work toward a positive outcome for all
Positive energy homes : creating passive houses for better living by Robin Brimblecombe( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A guide to how positive energy living can be achieved, through homes that power themselves and empower their occupants. Positive energy homes enable people to live healthy and comfortable lives with energy left over to share. Creating a house you love that produces surplus energy is surprisingly easy with a thorough understanding of how buildings work and careful attention to detail in construction. The Passive House standard, with its well-proven track record, forms the basis for creating positive energy homes. This book explores the Passive House 'fabric first' approach, as well as the science and practicalities of effective ventilation strategies, smart options for heating and cooling, daylight harvesting, and efficient lighting and appliances. Positive Energy Homes provides home owners world-wide, architects and builders with an understanding of the principles and technical details of building these houses
