  • Ecotoxicology of Wild Mammals

    By Richard F. Shore

    Ecotoxicology of Wild Mammals brings together the latest research on the exposure and effects of environmental contaminants in wild mammal populations. The underlying theme is encompassed by four questions: What exactly do we know about environmental contaminants in wild mammals? What are the commonalities and differences between mammal orders/species in the effects that contaminants have? How and to what degree of accuracy can we predict the adverse effects of environmental contaminants on mammalian wildlife? How significant are contaminant insults compared with other density-independent and -dependent factors such as habitat loss, climatic factors and disease? Written by a team of international authors who have led the research on contaminants in mammals, the underlying scientific principles and issues raised will have significance throughout the world. This will be invaluable to those studying the effects of environmental pollutants on mammals, regulatory agencies and those carrying out environmental impact assessment.
  • Encyclopedia of Modern Coral Reefs: Structure, Form and Process

    Coral reefs are the largest landforms built by plants and animals. Their study therefore incorporates a wide range of disciplines. This encyclopedia approaches coral reefs from an earth science perspective, concentrating especially on modern reefs. Currently coral reefs are under high stress, most prominently from climate change with changes to water temperature, sea level and ocean acidification particularly damaging. Modern reefs have evolved through the massive environmental changes of the Quaternary with long periods of exposure during glacially lowered sea level periods and short periods of interglacial growth. The entries in this encyclopedia condense the large amount of work carried out since Charles Darwin first attempted to understand reef evolution. Leading authorities from many countries have contributed to the entries covering areas of geology, geography and ecology, providing comprehensive access to the most up-to-date research on the structure, form and processes operating on Quaternary coral reefs.
