John Kricher, “The New Neotropical Companion”

English | ISBN: 0691115257 | 2017 | PDF | 448 pages | 57,7 MB

The acclaimed guide to the ecology and natural history of the American tropics―now fully updated and expanded
The New Neotropical Companion is the completely revised and expanded edition of a book that has helped thousands of people to understand the complex ecology and natural history of the most species-rich area on Earth, the American tropics. Featuring stunning color photos throughout, it is a sweeping and cutting-edge account of tropical ecology that includes not only tropical rain forests but also other ecosystems such as cloud forests, rivers, savannas, and mountains. This is the only guide to the American tropics that is all-inclusive, encompassing the entire region’s ecology and the amazing relationships among species rather than focusing just on species identification.
The New Neotropical Companion is a book unlike any other. Here, you will learn how to recognize distinctive ecological patterns of rain forests and other habitats and to interpret how these remarkable ecosystems function―everything is explained in clear and engaging prose free of jargon. You will also be introduced to the region’s astonishing plant and animal life.
Informative and entertaining, The New Neotropical Companion is a pleasurable escape for armchair naturalists, and visitors to the American tropics will want to refer to this book before, during, and after their trip.
Covers all of tropical America
Describes the species and habitats most likely to be observed by visitors
Includes every major ecosystem, from lowland rain forests to the high Andes
Features a wealth of color photos of habitats, plants, and animals

Failure-Modes-Based Software Reading By Yang-Ming Zhu

English | PDF | 2017 | 104 Pages | ISBN : 3319651021 | 2.54 MB

Identifying failure modes and their effects is critical to software failure mode and effects analysis and it largely depends on the analysts’ experience and the skill. This book develops a series of reading techniques based on common and prioritized failure modes in software requirements, software design, coding, and usability in order to makes the benefits of software failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) readily accessible to general software practitioners, particularly in small teams and resource-constrained organizations.
After a general introduction it offers an overview of software FMEA and discusses software review procedures and software reading techniques. Subsequent chapters present the basic ideas behind failure-modes-based reading techniques and examine the use of these techniques for software requirements, software design, software coding, software usability, and software testing. Covering the entire creation process, and including checklists and examples, it provides an easy introduction to the topic for professionals in software engineering and quality assurance.

Ramamurthy Mahalingam – Combined Stresses in Plants: Physiological, Molecular, and Biochemical Aspects

Published: 2014-12-06 | ISBN: 3319078984, 3319355996 | PDF | 264 pages | 7.53 MB

The unique responses of plants to combined stresses have been observed at physiological, biochemical, and molecular levels. This book provides an analysis of all three levels of change in various plants in response to different combinations of stresses. The text provides a general review of the combined stress paradigm, focuses on the impact of higher CO2 levels in combination with other stresses, examines drought stress in conjunction with other abiotic factors in different crop plants as well as the combination of biotic and abiotic factors, and discusses the impact of combined stresses in forest ecosystems.
Written by experts in the field, Combined Stresses in Plants: Physiological, Molecular, and Biochemical Aspects is a valuable resource for scientists, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows alike working in plant stresses.
