Martorino, Louis; Puopolo, Karl
Human activities are changing habitats, the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere and water, rate and balance of biogeochemical processes and diversity of life on the earth. This book examines the effects of metal contaminants in natural ecosystems, which are diverse, complex and often unpredictable. Establishing relationships between organism metal exposure, internal dose and associated biological effects is necessary to understand the fate and effects of metals in the environment. Furthermore, the study of marine planktonic protists in the nano-size range (2-20 um) is of great importance as these microorganisms are essential constituents of marine ecosystems and responsible for key trophic processes in the microbial food web. This book presents a comprehensive compilation of the taxonomy of these microorganisms with emphasis on their size range. Current and potential taxonomic tools for the identification of nanophytoplanktonic protists are also outlined. In addition, this book examines sediment records, that can provide much information on the paleoproductivity in past ecosystems, historical records of nutrients supplied and long term potential environmental impacts. Other chapters explore recent advances in sounding technology that use airborne optical techniques to examine seafloor topography, and innovative regional habitat creation programmes developed to plan and manage the delivery of habitat creations, and to protect or enhance the environment. 318pp.

Edited By Nilsson, Ingela
The intricate relationship between the erotic and the literary is a recurring theme in Western literature, with a starting-point in Plato's dialogues. Our need to talk, write, and read about love has resulted in a rich tradition, ranging from theoretical and philosophical discussions of Eros to love romance and poetry, clearly marked by the classical-heritage but continuously unfolding and rewriting itself. This present volume aims at providing both students and scholars with a series of discussions of this long tradition of reading and writing the erotic, seen from a number of different perspectives. A certain emphasis is placed on Classical Philology, but other contributors represent Byzantine studies, Iranian languages, History of ideas, and Comparative literature. 292pp.

Olver, Ian N.
This is an original contribution to the much debated area of the value that we should place on human life. With the euthanasia issue highlighted in the public arena this book argues for a non-absolutist highest value on life ethic and how that fits with society's current emphasis on individual autonomy. Not only are the arguments for and against placing a highest value on life explored but the way of arguing particularly the use of slippery slopes is discussed. By the use of everyday examples the impact of placing a high value on life is explored. A futuristic intensive care ward round illustrates the ethical and resource issues with which we would be challenged in adopting a highest value on life policy for medical decisions. This book will be useful for students of ethics, nursing and medicine as well as those engaged in the public debate on euthanasia. 165pp.
