♥ Book Title : The Late Cenozoic of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego
☯ Full Synopsis : "Written by highly qualified Argentine scientists and scholars, this book focuses on the uninterrupted geological and paleontological record of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego since the Miocene-Pliocene boundary to the arrival of man and modern times. This region is an outstanding area for research, with significant interest at the international level. It provides an updated overview of the scientific work in all related fields with a strong paleoclimatic approach. Patagonia has also been a sort of a "paleoclimatic bridge" between the Antarctic Peninsula and the more northerly land masses, since the final opening of the Drake Passage in the middle Miocene. Timely and comprehensive, The Late Cenozoic of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego is the only monograph book written in English. * One-stop resource for paleontological information of the Late Cenozoic of Patagonia * Covers 5 million years in the uninterrupted history of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego * Comprehensive coverage of the region written by highly qualified Argentine scientists and scholars"Article| J.

♥ Book Title : Patterns and Processes in Forest Landscapes
☯ Full Synopsis : "Increasing evidence suggests that the composition and spatial configuration – the pattern – of forest landscapes affect many ecological processes, including the movement and persistence of particular species, the susceptibility and spread of disturbances such as fires or pest outbreaks, and the redistribution of matter and nutrients. Understanding these issues is key to the successful management of complex, multifunctional forest landscapes, and landscape ecology, based on a foundation of island bio-geography and meta-population dynamic theories, provides the rationale to deal with this pattern-to-process interaction at different spatial and temporal scales. This carefully edited volume represents a stimulating addition to the international literature on landscape ecology and resource management. It provides key insights into some of the applicable landscape ecological theories that underlie forest management, with a specific focus on how forest management can benefit from landscape ecology, and how landscape ecology can be advanced by tackling challenging problems in forest (landscape) management. It also presents a series of case studies from Europe, Asia, North America, Africa and Australia exploring the issues of disturbance, diversity, management, and scale, and with a specific focus on how human intervention affects forest landscapes and, in turn, how landscapes influence humans and their culture. An important reference for advanced students and researchers in landscape ecology, conservation biology, forest ecology, natural resource management and ecology across multiple scales, the book will also appeal to researchers and practitioners in reserve design, ecological restoration, forest management, landscape planning and landscape architecture."Article| Raffaele Lafortezza| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Early Miocene Paleobiology in Patagonia
☯ Full Synopsis : "Coastal exposures of the Santa Cruz Formation in southern Patagonia have been a fertile ground for recovery of Early Miocene vertebrates for more than 100 years. This volume presents a comprehensive compilation of important mammalian groups which continue to thrive today. It includes the most recent fossil finds as well as important new interpretations based on 10 years of fieldwork by the authors. A key focus is placed on the paleoclimate and paleoenvironment during the time of deposition in the Middle Miocene Climatic Optimum (MMCO) between 20 and 15 million years ago. The authors present the first reconstruction of what climatic conditions were like and present important new evidence of the geochronological age, habits and community structures of fossil bird and mammal species. Academic researchers and graduate students in paleontology, paleobiology, paleoecology, stratigraphy, climatology and geochronology will find this a valuable source of information about this fascinating geological formation."Article| Sergio F.

♥ Book Title : A Voyage to Patagonia Through the Straits of Magellan Aboard the H. M. S. "Beagle" and "Adventure" (1826 - 1827)
☯ Full Synopsis : "Die Expedition der britischen Schiffe Beagle" und Adventure" in den Jahren 1826 und 1827 diente vornehmlich der Erkundung der Magellan-Strasse fur die Nutzung durch die Handelsschifffahrt. Man wollte Alternativen zu dem gefahrlichen Seeweg um Kap Horn finden, war sich aber durchaus bewusst, dass auch die Magellan-Strasse mit ihren starken Stromungen, heftigen Sturmen und zahlreichen Untiefen grosse Gefahren fur Segelschiffe barg. Die wendigen und schnellen Erkundungsschiffe der Royal Navy leisteten gefahrliche Pionierarbeit. Von grossem Gluck fur die Nachwelt sollte sich der Umstand erweisen, dass mit John MacDouall ein Offizier mit von der Partie war, der nicht nur scharf beobachten konnte, sondern das Erlebte auch ebenso lebendig wie prazise darzustellen vermochte. Daruber hinaus besass MacDouall eine in seiner Zeit und in seinen Schichten selten anzutreffende Eigenschaft: Sensibilitat fur soziale Fragen jenseits der ansonsten vorherrschenden Uberheblichkeit der herrschenden Klasse. Dies macht sein Buch nicht nur fur Seebaren, sondern auch fur an der Zeit interessierte ausgesprochen lesenswert. Die Erstveroffentlichung erfolgte im Jahre 1833 unter dem Titel Narrative of a Voyage to Patagonia and Terra del Fuego in 1826 and 1827" e expeditions of H.M.S. "Beagle" and "Adventure" in 1826 and 1827 were primarily car-ried out to explore the usefulness of the Strait of Magellan for the merchant navy. Aiming at finding an alternative seaway to the perilous route around Cape Horn, it was clear that the Strait of Magellan with its strong currents, severe storms and numerous shallows was as dan-gerous for sailing vessels as the former. The swift and easily manoeuvrable Royal Navy ships conducted hazardous pioneer work. Luckily, the mate John MacDouall, with his accurate sense of observation, was on board, who delivered a lively and precise account of his adventures. Additionally, for his day and age"Article| John MacDouall| Statement ..."
