Mediterranean Island Landscapes: Natural and Cultural Approaches (Landscape Series) (Landscape Series)

Mediterranean islands show many similarities of their biotic ecological, actual and environmental features. There also are many transformations by way of their human colonization and present anthropogenic pressures. This e-book addresses in 3 sections those features and examines the key environmental adjustments that the islands skilled in the course of the Quaternary interval.

Aquaculture, Innovation and Social Transformation

Aquaculture, Innovation and Social Transformation provides and translates Canadian and foreign views at the debate over the way forward for aquaculture in Canada. unique chapters research: animal welfare;knowledge administration and highbrow estate; environmental sustainability; neighborhood, conventional, and aboriginal wisdom; shoppers; and built-in coastal area administration.

Cephalopod Culture

Cephalopod tradition is the 1st compilation of study at the tradition of cephalopods. It describes reviews of culturing various teams of cephalopods: nautiluses, sepioids (Sepia officinalis, Sepia pharaonis, Sepiella inermis, Sepiella japonica Euprymna hyllebergi, Euprymna tasmanica), squids (Loligovulgaris, Doryteuthis opalescens, Sepioteuthis lessoniana) and octopods (Amphioctopus aegina, Enteroctopus megalocyathus, Octopus maya, Octopus mimus, Octopus minor, Octopus vulgaris, Robsonella fontaniana).

Eel Physiology

Eel of the genus Anguilla is a unprecedented fish, which because of its specific existence cycle has interested biologists and physiologists ever because the pioneering works of Homer H. Schmidt within the Thirties. The Eel has turn into a great version for varied elements of adaptive physiological study. regardless of that, numerous books facing eel biology, aquaculture, fishing, and so forth.

Example text

Where such terms are used frequently, excluding such words would result in long stretches of repetitive text. Thus the use of some technical words is unavoidable; for these a glossary is provided. 12 The Atlantic Salmon Finally, by way of reinforcement and to ensure clarity in the ‘take-home’ messages from each chapter, each includes a ‘summary and conclusions’ section in which these are highlighted. It is hoped that these will help to address what, next to understanding the genetic concerns relating to management issues, is the biggest challenge facing managers.

Such programmes are increasingly being developed as Atlantic salmon populations in more and more rivers are faced with extinction. Taking fish into culture poses major challenges as regards preserving genetic diversity. However, it represents the only practical management option for conserving the gene pools of threatened populations until conditions allow self-sustaining wild populations to be restored. Science as yet provides far from a complete or even sufficient understanding of the genetic character of the Atlantic salmon and how this needs to be managed and impinges on management.
