Animal Obituaries

by Jasper Burns

Do animal lives matter less than human lives? Day for day, year for year, do wild animals live less eventful or less important lives than human beings? Anyone who has spent an hour trying to kill a fly knows that he values his life just as highly as any human – and is at least as alert and aware of his self-interest.

One crude measure of a human life is the obituary. It gives a summary of an individual’s experiences, family connections, accomplishments, characteristics, and interests.

This book presents a series of imagined but fact-based animal obituaries, most with illustrations, that give a sense of the lives that were lived, and of their value....

Water Monsters South of the Border

by Denver Michaels

In his first book, Denver Michaels examined the lake monster phenomenon in the United States and Canada. In this book, Michaels takes us on a trip "South of the Border" to study the myths, legends, folklore, and eyewitness reports of water monsters in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central & South America.What parallels can be drawn between the creatures found "South of the Border" and their Canadian and American counterparts? What are we to make of the Mermaid legends of South America? Could there be dinosaurs roaming the remote reaches of the Amazon? What are "water tigers?" Is the "giant anaconda" a mythical creature, or does it actually exist?Though many creatures that were feared by native people centuries ago seem to be mythical, what are the ancient myths and legends trying to tell us? ...

The Future We Want: The Earth We Need

by Aditya Goel

Water and sanitation problems have reached boiling point; children are dying unnecessarily at the rate of 20 jumbo jets crashing every day. We forget that the water cycle and life cycle are one. Only a fool tests the depth of water with both feet. What makes the desert beautiful is that it somewhere hides a well. As I travel around the world, people think the only place where there is potential conflict over water is the Middle East, but they are completely wrong. We have the problem all over the world. The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea. In one drop of water are found all the secrets of the oceans. Thus, it is necessary to conserve and use this resource efficiently.

From Seascapes of Extinction to Seascapes of Confidence: Territorial Use Rights in Fisheries in Chile: ElQuisco and Puerto Oscuro

by Gloria L. Gallardo Fernandez

From Seascapes of extinction to seascapes of confidence. Territorial Use Rights in Fisheries in Chile: El Quisco and Puerto Oscuro by Gloria Gallardo Fernandés is an important contribution to our understanding of the multifaceted challenges underlying sustainable solutions to ecological fisheries, the book describes how, in Chile, indiscriminate harvest of the edible shellfish Concholepas concholepas (false abalone or Loco), has been threatening not only the living of small-scale artisan fishers but also the ecosystem. In an attempt to strengthen the fishers’ livelihoods and at the same time recuperate the fish, the Chilean government introduced the regulatory measure: Management and Exploitation Areas for Benthic Resources (MEABRs), locally known as Management Areas (MAs) and in...

Why We Should Go Vegan

by Magnus Vinding

We should go vegan!That is the unambiguous conclusion of this short book. This conclusion is reached through a broad examination of the consequences of our not being vegan - both in relation to human health, environmental pollution, the risk of the spread of diseases, and in relation to the animals we farm and kill. On all these levels the conclusion is clear: We have no good reason to not go vegan, while we have many good reasons to stop our practice of raising, killing and eating animals and things from them. The bottom line: We have a strong ethical obligation to go vegan, and that is true even if we only care about ourselves and our fellow human beings."Magnus Vinding makes a compelling case for ending the abuse of other sentient beings. What will we tell our grandchildren? ("But I lik...

The Long, The Short and The Tall: Life with Rescue Dogs

by Chris Brooks

Having grown up surrounded by dogs and other animals, Chris Brooks is a ‘dog lady’. "I love dogs. I always have done." she says.
As a little girl, her best friend and guardian was a dog. Growing up, nothing changed. Over more than twenty years, she has adopted or rescued a pot pourri of dogs, from a three legged terrier to a ten stone Rottweiler.
These are true stories of pet rescue, with tales all about dogs and of the author's journey through life with some of the mutts and mongrels who have shared it; abandoned dogs, rescued dogs, rehabilitated dogs. From the tranquil to the timid, from the serene to the certifiable. And en route you will also read other tales on subjects ranging between renovated buildings to rescued chickens.
Today, Chris is still dog crazy and ...

Walden (AmazonClassics Edition)

by Henry David Thoreau

At Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau reflected on simpler living in the natural world. By removing himself from the distractions of materialism, Thoreau hoped to not only improve his spiritual life but also gain a better understanding of society through solitary introspection.In Walden, Thoreau condenses his two-year, two-month, two-day stay into a single year, using the four seasons to symbolize human development—a cycle of life shared by both nature and man. A celebration of personal renewal through self-reliance, independence, and simplicity, composed for all of us living in “quiet desperation,” Walden is eternal.Revised edition: Previously published as Walden, this edition of Walden (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions....

Rewilding European Landscapes

by Henrique M. Pereira and Laetitia M. Navarro

Some European lands have been progressively alleviated of human pressures, particularly traditional agriculture in remote areas. This book proposes that this land abandonment can be seen as an opportunity to restore natural ecosystems via rewilding. We define rewilding as the passive management of ecological successions having in mind the long-term goal of restoring natural ecosystem processes. The book aims at introducing the concept of rewilding to scientists, students and practitioners. The first part presents the theory of rewilding in the European context. The second part of the book directly addresses the link between rewilding, biodiversity, and habitats. The third and last part is dedicated to practical aspects of the implementation of rewilding as a land management option. We beli...

Sustainable Living with Environmental Risks

by Nobuhiro Kaneko and Shinji Yoshiura

We are not free from environmental risks that accompany the development of human societies. Modern economic development has accelerated environmental pollution, caused loss of natural habitats, and modified landscapes. These environmental changes have impacted natural systems: water and heat circulation, nutrient cycling, and biodiversity. These changes in natural systems degrade ecosystem services and subsequently increase environmental risks for humans. Environmental risks, therefore, are not only human health risks by pollution, climatic anomalies and natural disasters, but also degradation of ecosystem services on which most people are relying for their lives. We cannot entirely eliminate the risks, because it is not possible to attain zero impact on the environment, but we need to fin...

Wetlands and Water Framework Directive: Protection, Management and Climate Change (GeoPlanet: Earth and Planetary Sciences)

by Mateusz Grygoruk and Stefan Ignar

This book compares the lessons learned from a wetland-perspective approach to the changing climate and the requirements of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) with regard to environmental conservation. Examples from Germany and Poland are discussed due to the efficiency of their respective implementations of water conservation policies. Although the general scientific interest in specific issues such as wetlands, climate change, nature conservation and the WFD enjoy a well established position in international environmental research, these four elements are rarely considered together due to the complexity of the processes, biased scenarios of global change and subjective policy background. Major challenges involved in carrying out environmental conservation actions that assess the potentia...

Marginality: Addressing the Nexus of Poverty, Exclusion and Ecology

by Joachim von Braun and Franz W. Gatzweiler

This book takes a new approach on understanding causes of extreme poverty and promising actions to address it. Its focus is on marginality being a root cause of poverty and deprivation. “Marginality” is the position of people on the edge, preventing their access to resources, freedom of choices, and the development of capabilities. The book is research based with original empirical analyses at local, national, and local scales; book contributors are leaders in their fields and have backgrounds in different disciplines. An important message of the book is that economic and ecological approaches and institutional innovations need to be integrated to overcome marginality. The book will be a valuable source for development scholars and students, actors that design public policies, and for ...
