Description

Systems Ecology An Introduction Howard T. Odum An integrated theoretical and applied approach to systems ecology, using diagrammatic language to explain basic concepts of systems, modeling, and simulation. It presents simple and moderate complexity models as the ones of primary utility in theory and practice; combines energetics and kinetics, rather than viewing them separately; and generalizes concepts of ecosystems and economic systems, among its many vital features. (0 471 65277-6) 1983 Ecogenetics Genetic Variation in Susceptibility to Environmental Agents Edward J. Calabrese The most comprehensive and up-to-date assessment of how genetic factors affect susceptibility to environmental agents. The book provides an objective critical evaluation of current scientific literature on the subject, with particular emphasis on those a gents typically considered pollutants. (0 471 89112-6) 1984 Chemodynamics Environmental Movement of Chemicals in Air, Water and Soil Louis J. Thibodeaux This book describes the nature and processes of the transport of pollutants throughout the environment. It examines equilibrium at environmental interfaces, transport fundamentals, and the chemical exchange rates between air and water, water and the adjoining earthen material, air and soil, as well as intraphase chemical exchange rates. (0 471 04720-1) 1979 Environmental Engineering and Sanitation, 3rd Edition Joseph A. Salvato A totally updated edition of the standard guide to sanitary and environmental engineering principles and their practical applications. It covers virtually every problem encountered in the design, construction, maintenance, and operation of sanitation plants and structures. New features include updated material on water reclamation and reuse, on-site sewage disposal, protection of groundwater quality, and more. (0 471 04942-5) 1982 Aquatic Chemistry An Introduction Emphasizing Chemical Equilibria in Natural Waters, 2nd Edition Werner J. Stumm & James J. Morgan This new edition of the recognized classic crystallizes the enormous and growing flood of data and theory that has accompanied the maturation of this field. New features include increased attention to steady-state and dynamic models employing mass-balance approaches and kinetic information; a new chapter on environmental considerations; expanded compilation of thermodynamic data; and more.(0 471 04831-3)1981Cloth(0 471 09173-1)1981Paper
