Roson, R.; And Small, K. A. (editor)
The analysis of relationships between transport and environmental policy has invited interdisciplinary treatment and a variety of approaches. A subset of the approaches used involves economic analysis. Economic approaches often consider pricing policies and attempt to evaluate their effectiveness in comparison with more traditional measures such as "command and control" regulation and directed technological innovation. Another important subset of approaches involves simulation modelling, in which key relationships are represented mathematically so that their influence can be quantified and their inter-relationships discerned precisely. This book treats the intersection of these two subsets of approaches: simulation models with a strong economic content. This intersection defines a way to study environment and transport. Its breadth is illustrated by the wide range of policies, from carbon taxes to speed limits, treated here. 233pp.

Edited By Jain,S.M.;Brar,D.S. And Ahloowalia,B.S.
The basic purpose of this book is to describe the relative value of each method of improving various agricultural crops by using parasexual techniques. While no book can be a complete source of all the information on a subject, a range of topics were selected to highlight the recent developments in mutagenesis (conventional approach and molecular biology) and in vitro induced variation in plant breeding. We have deliberately kept short the title of this book, simply emphasizing somaclonal variation and induced mutation. This book is divided into three sections. Section 1 contains 13 chapters mainly on somaclonal variation (SCV), covering SCV in crop improvement, SCV in ornamentals, cereals and forage grasses, banana, and forest trees, cytogenetic basis of SCV, in vitro selection, gametoclonal variation, protoclonal variation, and solanaceous medicinal plants. Section 2 deals with induced mutation, and is covered in 10 chapters mainly on mutagenesis in sugarcane, fruit trees, apomixsis, ornamental plants, disease resistance, cereals and legumes, and vegetatively propagated plants. 615pp.N.B.Small label mark at base of d/j spine.

Cable, Ted T.
A fascinating and thought provoking journey into West Africa through the eyes of the people who have dedicated their lives to helping preserve the natural habitat of West Africa. This book describes the work of individuals who have devoted their lives to preserving a richly diverse, beautiful, and prosperous world for future generations of West Africans. The book's purposes are to honor these dedicated conservationists and to offer them as inspirational role models for those considering joining the ranks of conservationists. By describing the places, the issues, and the challenges facing these individuals, this book presents a snapshot of West Africa conservation as we begin the twenty-first century. Eighteen different profiles cover a gamut of topics such as: Trees for Timbuktu, Forests for the Future, Championing Chimpanzees, Endangered Species, National Parks, and the Politics of Conservation. While the economy and politics of this great country keep changing you will feel an involvement in these conservation efforts right from the start of this book.
