Many arborists learn tree work practices without fully understanding the biological and physiological principles behind them. However, outcomes for the health and longevity of trees are greatly improved when an arborist understands the science behind the care of tree root systems and crowns. In Applied Tree Biology, Drs. Hirons and Thomas draw upon their decades of experience in the laboratory, classroom, and the field – as well as the expertise of distinguished contributors to this volume – to provide those responsible for tree care with the scientific information that informs best practices for planting, pruning, soil decompaction, irrigation, and much more. Takes a multidisciplinary approach, integrating knowledge from plant biology, physiology, arboriculture, ecology, and more Provides a systematic presentation of fundamental tree biology and the scientific principles informing high quality tree care Presents accessible scientific information and best practices that help promote the health and longevity of trees Reflects the authors’ decades of experience as tree biology researchers and educators, as well as their years of professional experience across the globe Applied Tree Biology is an indispensable source of practical, succinct information on tree biology, physiology, and ecology for professionals and interested amateurs involved with the care of trees. Arborists, foresters, and horticulturists at all stages of their careers will find this text particularly useful.

Der Begründer der Psychoanalyse, Sigmund Freud, hat bei der Entwicklung seiner Lehre immer wieder auf literarische Werke zurückgegriffen und Dichter als »wertvolle Bundesgenossen« bezeichnet. Mehrfach hat sich Freud auch mit der phantastischen Literatur beschäftigt, vor allem in dem 1919 veröffentlichten brillanten Essay »Das Unheimliche«. Freud untersucht die deutsche romantische Literatur, namentlich E.T.A. Hoffmann, und gelangt über die Herleitung des Wortes unheimlich aus dem Heimischen zu der verblüffenden Erkenntnis, dass unheimlich nur ist, was uns einst nah vertraut, also heimisch war. Im deutschen Sprachraum weniger bekannt, gilt Freuds Essay in der angelsächsischen Welt als der zentrale Text zum Verständnis der literarischen Phantastik.

Wie auch ihre Schwestern ist CeCe d'Aplièse ein Adoptivkind, und ihre Herkunft ist ihr unbekannt. Als ihr Vater stirbt, hinterlässt er einen Hinweis – sie soll in Australien die Spur einer gewissen Kitty Mercer ausfindig machen. Ihre Reise führt sie zunächst nach Thailand, wo sie die Bekanntschaft eines geheimnisvollen Mannes macht. Durch ihn fällt CeCe eine Biographie von Kitty Mercer in die Hände – eine Schottin, die vor über hundert Jahren nach Australien kam und den Perlenhandel zu ungeahnter Blüte brachte. CeCe fliegt nach Down Under, um den verschlungenen Pfaden von Kittys Schicksal zu folgen. Und taucht dabei ein in die magische Kunst der Aborigines, die ihr den Weg weist ins Herz ihrer eigenen Geschichte ...

The genesis of soils has been seen mostly as an autochthonistic process, that is, formation in situ. However, soil geomorphologists have recognized addition and loss of materials, for example, through eolian and colluvial processes, as a major contribution to allochthonistic soil formation. The most important characteristic of these soils is the lithological discontinuity, which separates the lower residual material from the upper allochthonic soil. The chapter deals with (1) developing a model joining the ideas of in situ formation and near-surface processes such as adding or removing material, (2) the pedogenetic processes in soils with lithological discontinuities, and (3) the effect of lithological discontinuities on physical and chemical properties of soils.

Slope deposits are common in any inclined relief. So-called cover beds may veil entire landscapes, in which case they are commonly overlooked or confused with soil horizons. This book focuses on these widespread deposits and discusses their properties, genesis, and age mainly in subdued mountains of Central Europe, where to date most research on the matter has been conducted. The ecological consequences of such slope deposits on soils, slope water dynamics, and slope failures are addressed. Finally, transfer of the cover-bed concept to other mid-latitude regions is attempted for the reconstruction of landscape evolution. This unique compilation, covering several decades of a facies-oriented approach to slope-deposit research, delivers deep insight into the wide field of research on cover beds and encourages researchers all over the world to take an in-depth look at the critical zone as to its possible stratified nature. Unique compilation of several decades of slope-deposit research Facies-oriented approach Addresses ecological consequences on soils, slope water dynamics, and slope failures

Das Standardwerk über vernünftige Ernährung Der Mensch gehört von der Konsititution seiner Verdauungsorgane her zu den Omnivoren, den Allesfressern. Das war in der Evolution sicherlich nützlich. Doch das heutige Überangebot von Nahrungsmitteln in Supermärkten und Schnellrestaurants bringt nicht nur ihn selbst körperlich an den Rand des Abgrunds, sondern ruiniert auch noch seinen Lebensraum und sein soziales Umfeld. Mit Biss und investigativer Recherche sieht sich Pollan um, wie unsere Nahrungsmittel hergestellt und verarbeitet werden, vom Maisfeld über Cheeseburger mit Pommes bis zum Öko-Menü. Er öffnet uns die Augen für unser gestörtes Essverhalten und für den Weg zurück zu Einfachheit und Genuss.

Das Leben auf dem Land – packend und authentisch erzählt James Rebanks’ Familie lebt seit Generationen im englischen Hochland, dem Lake District. Die Lebensweise ist seit Jahrhunderten von den Jahreszeiten und Arbeitsabläufen bestimmt. Im Sommer werden die Schafe auf die kahlen Berge getrieben und das Heu geerntet; im Herbst folgen die Handelsmessen, wo die Herden aufgestockt werden, im Winter der Kampf, dass die Schafe am Leben bleiben, und im Frühjahr schließlich die Erleichterung, wenn die Lämmer geboren und die Tiere wieder in die Berge getrieben werden können. James Rebanks erzählt von einer archaischen Landschaft, von der tiefen Verwurzelung an einen Ort. In eindrucksvoll klarer Prosa schildert er den Jahresablauf in der Arbeit eines Hirten, bietet uns einen einzigartigen Einblick in das ländliche Leben. Er schreibt auch von den Menschen, die ihm nahe stehen, Menschen mit großer Beharrlichkeit, obwohl sich die Welt um sie herum vollständig verändert hat.

El Cultivo del Olivo se ha concebido como un texto de elevado nivel técnico dirigido a personas del sector: agricultores, industriales, técnicos, estudiantes y, en general, a todos aquellos interesados en el cultivo de esta planta milenaria. Por ello se diseñó como una obra colectiva. Se trataba de elaborar un libro permanentemente actualizado, que contara con la participación de expertos con los conocimientos científicos y técnicos precisos en cada uno de sus capítulos que permitieran al lector plantar y cultivar con éxito un olivar y obtener unos productos de calidad a la luz de los conocimientos actuales. Esta séptima edición aparece 20 años después de la primera. Durante este tiempo El Cultivo del Olivo se ha convertido en un referente del cambio experimentado por la olivicultura en un tiempo de continua renovación. La acogida de las seis anteriores ediciones y la publicación de la versión en inglés de la 5ª edición, algo excepcional en un libro agrícola, son indicadores del interés actual por el olivar y sus productos, de la proyección internacional del cambio experimentado por la olivicultura en España, y de la creciente capacidad del sistema de investigación y desarrollo en nuestro país. Desde la sexta edición, hace 8 años, se ha producido un continuo aumento de conocimientos, lo que ha dado lugar a la necesidad de reestructurar capítulos y a ampliar el contenido de la mayoría de ellos. También se han incorporado nuevos autores, un cambio relacionado con la renovación generacional. Para los editores, contar con ellos supone una grata satisfacción. Garantizan la continuidad de la actualización de los avances científicos y técnicos en el olivar y sus productos y, por tanto, el futuro. Por ello, queremos agradecer la participación de aquellos que nos han acompañado desde la primera edición y dar la bienvenida a los nuevos, que han contribuido eficientemente a la actualización del libro. Entre todos ponemos a disposición de olivareros, científicos y técnicos, y del público en general, este tratado concebido, desde la primera edición, para la utilidad y disfrute de sus lectores y estudiosos.
