This book is designed to present those principles and techniques for land appraisal which are applicable to all developing countries. Examples of specific situations in which these techniques have been or might be adopted are taken primarily from monsoonal and equatorial Asia. It is in this region that the land/food/population problem is most acute. It is also the writer's region of specialization; over the past ten years out of a total of some twenty-five years working in or closely concerned with Asia, an attempt has been made to examine the major problems ofland potential in relation to rural economy and nutrition in the whole region, and in particular to show to what extent its different parts resemble or differ from each other. The geographical scope comprises mainland southern, southeast and east Asia, from Pakistan to the People's Republic of China and Korea, with the insular monsoonal and equatorial lands of Sri Lanka, Indonesia, East Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan and Japan (part). International and bilateral agencies and specialists outside Asia repeatedly insist that Asia must learn to feed itself from the produce of its own land, or from imported foods paid for by the exports of primary and secondary commodities and of manufactured products to the developed world.

"Landscape Bionomics,” or “Bio-integrated Landscape Ecology,” radically transforms the main principles of traditional Landscape Ecology by recognizing the landscape as a living entity rather than merely the spatial distribution of species and communities on the territory, often analysed in separate themes (water, species, pollution, etc.). To be more exact, the landscape is identified as the "life organization integrating a set of plants, animals and human communities and its system of natural, semi-natural, and human cultural ecosystems in a certain spatial configuration." This new perspective inevitably leads to significant changes in how to assess and manage the environment. This book represents the culmination of an endeavor begun by the author, with the support of Richard Forman and Zev Naveh, more than a dozen years ago. It builds on the author’s previous successful publication, Landscape Ecology, A Widening Foundation, by addressing a range of additional topics and discussing the new theoretical and methodological concepts that have emerged during the past decade of research. Particular attention is paid to the fact that interventions in the landscape can be made with the best intentions yet cause serious damage! Against this background, the author explains the need to study "landscape units" by applying methods comparable to those used in clinical diagnosis – hence ecologists can be viewed as the “physicians” of ecological systems.

Charles Darwin: Über die Entstehung der Arten durch natürliche Zuchtwahl oder die Erhaltung der begünstigten Rassen im Kampfe ums Dasein • Für die eBook-Ausgabe neu editiert • Mit eingeklinkter Bilderstrecke (22 Illustrationen) • An die moderne Rechtschreibung angepasst, ohne den Charakter des Textes zu verfälschen • Mit Hypertext-Inhaltsverzeichnis und vollständig verlinkten Kapiteln, Unterkapiteln und Fußnoten Bestseller-Autor Rolf Dobelli (»Die Kunst des klaren Denkens«) über dieses Buch: »›Über die Entstehung der Arten‹ war 1859 ein Paukenschlag, wie es ihn in der Geschichte der Wissenschaft vorher und nachher kaum je gegeben hat. Seither spielt sich praktisch jede Diskussion unter Biologen vor dem Hintergrund der Evolutionstheorie ab. Zahlreiche Wissenschaftler machten sich Darwins Thesen rasch zu Eigen und vertraten sie energisch, während die Gegnerschaft sich vor allem aus weltanschaulichen Motiven speiste. Darwins Evolutionstheorie wurde, ohne dass er diese Möglichkeit besonders betont hätte, sofort auch auf den Menschen bezogen – und naturgemäß war dies der Punkt, an dem sich die Geister am erbittertsten schieden.« Die für viele schockierende grundlegende Einsicht Darwins hat sich erst in den letzten Jahrzehnten in der Wissenschaft vollständig durchgesetzt: »Der Unterschied zwischen Mensch und Tier ist auf keinem Gebiet ein grundsätzlicher, sondern stets nur ein gradueller.« (Dobelli)

Ecology is in a challenging state as a scientific discipline. While some theoretical ecologists are attempting to build a definition of ecology from first principles, many others are questioning even the feasibility of a general and universal theory. At the same time, it is increasingly important that ecology is accurately and functionally defined for a generation of researchers tackling escalating environmental problems in the face of doubt and disagreement. The authors of Theory-Based Ecology have written a textbook that presents a robust, modern, and mathematically sound theory of ecology, maintaining a strong link between empirical data, models, and theory. It is firmly based in Darwinian thought, since it was Darwin who first revealed the ecological principles of the origin of species, and gave the evolution of diversity a process-based, mechanistic explanation. The authors base their synthetic theory of Darwinian ecology on seven key principles: exponential growth, growth regulation, inherited individual differences, finiteness and stochasticity, competitive exclusion, robust coexistence, and constraints and trade-offs. Within this solid conceptual framework, they integrate classic and actual empirical knowledge from ecology and evolutionary biology, clarifying methodological and mathematical detail in clear and helpful text boxes. A wealth of illustrated examples pertaining to different organisational levels (alleles, clones and species) helps to explain how the principles operate. This is an invaluable resource for graduate level students as well as professional researchers in the fields of ecology, genetics, evolutionary ecology, and mathematical biology.
