Ranger Musings: A Collection of Adventure Stories and the Healing Power of Nature

by B.A. Woodland

Being raised in a household with eleven siblings and a young widowed mother brought chaos and confusion to the author who eventually sought out solace and adventure in the wide, open places of the American West. Working as a National Park Service Ranger was a dream since college days and she made that a reality in such iconic places as Grand Canyon, Crater Lake, Zion, Yosemite, Mount Rainier, Sequoia and Denali National Parks. Losing her father at age six meant that Ranger Betty dealt with issues of abandonment, trust, and fear. What seems unreal is her willingness to throw caution to the wind to accomplish her goals, learn from mistakes, dive into relationships and ultimately learn to love and be loved. "Ranger" is a coming of age story that explores vast expanses of wilderness while tell...

Lost for Worlds: Extinct Species Seen with Selfish Eyes

by Magnus Lewan

Does it really matter when a species goes extinct?

This book was written out of curiosity. People talk about extinctions of species as something bad and biodiversity as something good, frequently without mentioning any actual consequences for you and me or even for society or the planet. What is “biodiversity” by the way? This book tries to sort out what extinctions actually mean for you and me, and what kinds of biodiversity can be useful.

The book is full of factoids and examples–some of them dry, most of them interesting, and some of them even fun....

Benefit-sharing in Environmental Governance (Open Access): Local Experiences of a Global Concept (Earthscan Studies in Natural Resource Management)

by Louisa Parks

Taking a bottom up perspective, this book explores local framings of a wide range of issues related to benefit-sharing, a growing concept in global environmental governance. Benefit-sharing in Environmental Governance draws on original case studies from South Africa, Namibia, Greece, Argentina and Malaysia to shed light on what benefit-sharing looks like from the local viewpoint. These local level case studies move away from the idea of benefit-sharing as defined by a single international organization or treaty. Rather, they reflect different situations where benefit-sharing has been considered, including agriculture, access to land and plants, wildlife management and extractives industries. Common themes in the experiences of local communities form the basis for an exploration of spaces f...

Climate Bogeyman: The Criminal Insanity of the Global Warming / Climate Change Hoax

by M King

In bold and certain defiance of “the great and the good” who continue to proclaim “Global Warming” to be “settled science,” author M S King aligns himself firmly and proudly in the camp of what the media refers to as “climate change deniers.” What separates this work from that of so many other excellent books and documentaries which debunk the hoax of manmade “Global Warming” is that it provides a complete picture of the scam – one that not only encompasses the Fake Science, but also ties it into the public relations component and the historical geopolitical context which drives the “Climate Bogeyman.”It is self-defeating to “respectfully disagree” with the warmists. Any respect afforded to that crowd implies that they, in the words of one “denialist” film...

Governance for Drought Resilience: Land and Water Drought Management in Europe

by Hans Bressers

This book presents the findings of a team of scientists and practitioners who have been working on the project “Benefits of Governance in Drought Adaptation” (in short: the DROP project), which is included in the European Union’s INTERREG IVB NWE programme. The DROP governance team developed a Governance Assessment Tool (GAT), which allows the governance setting of a given region for planning and realizing drought adaptation measures to be assessed. Based on this assessment, recommendations can be developed for regional water authorities concerning how to operate most effectively towards increased drought resilience in this context. The GAT has been applied to six regions in Northwest Europe: Twente and Salland in the Netherlands, Eifel-Ruhr in Germany, Brittany in France, Somerset i...

Over twenty chapters provide insight into this topic from various disciplinary angles and perspectives, ranging from archaeology, paleoclimatology, antiquity, historical geography, agriculture, carving art and literacy.

Fishing for Sanity: A Trout Stream and a Way of Life (The Sanity Series Book 3)

by Mike Reuther

Jack McAllister enjoys what he's sure is close to a happy life in the mountains of Pennsylvania. This unconventional existence he’s carved out for himself amounts to fishing his beloved trout streams near his home with longtime pal Soothsayer, the wizened sage of the Green Spring Valley, and guiding angling clients. But his life is soon to change with the sudden appearance of a mayfly hatch. Soon, the Shad River and the whole remote valley become a destination spot for too many fly-fishers and commercial interests. By the time, an intrepid reporter, a slick and fast-talking attorney, and a lovely magazine editor enter Jack’s life, things have become more than complicated. Fishing for Sanity is an often-humorous story, capturing a place, a way of life and the inevitable changes we all f...

Ranaviruses: Lethal Pathogens of Ectothermic Vertebrates

by Matthew J. Gray

This is the first book on ranaviruses. Ranaviruses are double-stranded DNA viruses that cause hemorrhagic disease in amphibians, reptiles, and fish. They have caused mass die-offs of ectothermic vertebrates in wild and captive populations around the globe. There is evidence that this pathogen is emerging and responsible for population declines in certain locations. Considering that amphibians and freshwater turtles are suitable hosts and the most imperiled vertebrate taxa in the world, ranaviruses can have significant impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem function. Additionally, many fish that are raised in aquaculture facilities and traded internationally are suitable hosts; thus, the potential economic impact of ranaviruses is significant. Ranaviruses also serve as a model for replicatio...

The GEO Handbook on Biodiversity Observation Networks

by Michele Walters

Biodiversity observation systems are almost everywhere inadequate to meet local, national and international (treaty) obligations. As a result of alarmingly rapid declines in biodiversity in the modern era, there is a strong, worldwide desire to upgrade our monitoring systems, but little clarity on what is actually needed and how it can be assembled from the elements which are already present. This book intends to provide practical guidance to broadly-defined biodiversity observation networks at all scales, but predominantly the national scale and higher. This is a practical how-to book with substantial policy relevance. It will mostly be used by technical specialists with a responsibility for biodiversity monitoring to establish and refine their systems. It is written at a technical level,...

Transforming Socio-Natures in Turkey: Landscapes, State and Environmental Movements (Routledge Environmental Humanities)

by Onur İnal

This book is an exploration of the environmental makings and contested historical trajectories of environmental change in Turkey. Despite the recent proliferation of studies on the political economy of environmental change and urban transformation, until now there has not been a sufficiently complete treatment of Turkey's troubled environments, which live on the edge both geographically (between Europe and Middle East) and politically (between democracy and totalitarianism).The contributors to Transforming Socio-Natures in Turkey use the toolbox of environmental humanities to explore the main political, cultural and historical factors relating to the country’s socio-environmental problems. This leads not only to a better grounding of some of the historical and contemporary debates on the...

Weather: An Act of Man

by Michael Fleming

Humans are the only species willing to destroy their nest.

With their power to create and destroy life and property - some choose the wrong decision due to mental illness. These "mad scientists" who use chemical weapons on American citizens and create un-natural disasters through cloud seeding and geoengineering have ongoing mental issues that need to be solved immediately in order to prevent further harm to planet Earth... our only place to live.

David Keith, geoengineering poster-child and domestic terrorist, believes that he can "save the planet" by "spraying it with battery acid," while admitting to the murder of over 1 million individuals per year from his test-in-progress. Need I say more?...

A Critical Approach to Climate Change Adaptation: Discourses, Policies and Practices (Routledge Advances in Climate Change Research)

by Silja Klepp

This edited volume brings together critical research on climate change adaptation discourses, policies, and practices from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Drawing on examples from countries including Colombia, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Russia, Tanzania, Indonesia, and the Pacific Islands, the chapters describe how adaptation measures are interpreted, transformed, and implemented at grassroots level and how these measures are changing or interfering with power relations, legal pluralismm and local (ecological) knowledge. As a whole, the book challenges established perspectives of climate change adaptation by taking into account issues of cultural diversity, environmental justicem and human rights, as well as feminist or intersectional approaches. This innovative approach allows for analyse...

Rewilding European Landscapes

by Henrique M. Pereira

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...

Cicada Spring: A Novel

by Christian Galacar

On a warm May evening in the spring of 1979, the people of Heartsridge, Massachusetts, are living the American dream. Families are gathered for barbecues. Kids are playing in front yards. Gardens are being kept. Meanwhile, Kara Price stumbles home through the woods, raped and beaten, her life shattered by a wicked act of violence, perpetrated by one of the town’s most beloved and public figures.

Surrounding Kara is a cast of compelling and nefarious characters—a violent-tempered mayor who can do no wrong in the eyes of the town, a sheriff bound by the rules and plagued by a guilty conscience, a father bent on revenge, a serial killer in the midst of an identity crisis. And at the center of it all there's Kara, who just wants to move on with her life and forget everythin...
