Abstract

Schauplatz der Ereignisse und Entwicklungen, die in diesem Band im Mittelpunkt stehen, ist Hann. Münden. Dort wurde 1868 eine Preußische Forstakademie gegründet, aus der 1939 die Forstliche Fakultät der Universität Göttingen hervorging. Bereits kurz nach dem Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs entfachten nationalsozialistisch gesinnte Studenten eine Pogromstimmung gegen den jüdischen Professor für Mykologie, Richard Falck, und das von ihm geleitete Institut. Die vorliegende Untersuchung dokumentiert die rassistischen Angriffe, denen Falck und seine Mitarbeiter seit 1920 in Münden ausgesetzt waren. Sie schildert, wie die Preußische Staatsregierung auf das Geschehen reagierte, welche Positionen das Professorenkollegium bezog und wie sich die Fakultät nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs zu diesen Vorgängen stellte. Als Rahmenbedingungen werden die hochschulpolitischen ‚Verfassungskämpfe‘ in Münden zu Beginn der 1920er Jahre und die beständige Sorge um den Erhalt der Forsthochschule in den Blick genommen. Außerdem wird gefragt, welche Rolle die Forstliche Hochschule bzw. die spätere Forstliche Fakultät der Universität Göttingen im „Dritten Reich“ gespielt hat und wodurch anschließend die „Entnazifizierung“ gekennzeichnet war. Der Untersuchungszeitraum (1920-1950 mit Vor- und Nachlaufzeiten) weist eine Reihe von Zäsuren und Wendepunkten auf, die, soweit möglich, für eine Analyse von Brüchen bzw. Kontinuitäten in den Forschungsaktivitäten der wissenschaftlichen Institute herangezogen werden. Diese Studie ist zugleich ein Beitrag zur Geschichte der Universität Göttingen im Nationalsozialismus.

Abstract

The book, Global Exposition of Wildlife Management, covers five research topics connected to wildlife management. From conservation and domestication of species from the wild, the socioeconomic importance of wildlife to Tuberculosis within wildlife species as an emerging health threat for both wildlife and humans. Topics presented also discuss bush-meat utilization and its impact on biodiversity conservation, community forestry management and its role in biodiversity conservation, food and feeding ecology, urban forestry, and integrated island management for ecologically sensitive areas. This book also presents wildlife conservation research using a public aquarium as a case study. Each chapter gives special reference to the prevailing problems in wildlife conservation and hopes to provide possible solutions.

Abstract

There have been brilliant studies in the field of morphometry in recent years. This book increases the literature on this domain by presenting some recent advances and emerging applications upon biological structures, ranging in a variety of purposes and objectives: from animal visual system to growth models, from amphibians to humans, all in a comprehensive and accessible way of information. All chapters are written by leading internationally recognized experts from academia, who explain their own topics in plain English and in a totally rigorous manner. Suitable for a wide range of expert readers, this book represents a high valuable work for scientists and advanced students working in biological and medical morphometric topics.

Abstract

This book is aimed to cover the phylogenetic and functional ecology with special reference to ecological shifts. I hope this book may benefit the students, fellow professors, and resource managers studying plant sciences. Since the topics stated in this book are not new but the issues and technologies mentioned were new to me, I expect that they will be new and equally advanced for the readers too. I encourage the readers to get out into the field to identify plants and to dig out the anthropogenic and social activities effecting plants to come along with the development of plant ecology; to rise and serve the topic of the enormous number of plants facing extinction; and to relish themselves and make some effort to contribute something to the world.

Abstract

Forest management should allow the sustainable use of forests. This is only possible through solid knowledge in the disciplines that forest science encompasses. The readers of New Perspectives in Forest Science have an excellent source of information on actual trends of forest research and knowledge about the use of forest and landscape. This book has been written by specialists focusing on the following aspects of forest science: C cycle, biomass, forest restoration, forest resources and biodiversity. The authors of this book are of different nationalities and specialties, thus providing diverse perspectives on the subject of forestry. We hope that the chapters of this book can serve both students and researchers, as excellent guides to improve their knowledge on forest science.

Abstract

This book concerns the different aspects of forest fires, the impact of fire on both forest resources (e.g. forest cover) and communities that use different forest functions. Therefore, forest fires have their environmental, economic and social consequences, and none of them is less important. Forest fires can be caused by both natural forces and anthropogenic factors, and in the latter case, it is extremely interesting to profile the potential arsonist. Forest fires may also cause conflicts, stronger or weaker, in local communities that have been using forests for years. These conflicts can be solved both by gradually changing the law itself and through education at the local level. Not less important is the ability to detect fires early, which can be helped by the development of modern technologies. In limiting the effects of forest fires, it may also be helpful to develop mathematical models that indicate various factors affecting the possibility of a fire or affecting the rate of its spread. Not less important is the attempt to assess the direction of forest regeneration after the fire has ceased, in understanding what the help of modern technology is. These aspects of forest fire are the subject of this book. I realize, however, that the contents in it can only be an incentive for the reader to learn more, in an interesting aspect. I assume that this book will be valuable to researchers as well as students who are interested in different aspects connected to forest fires, not only from the ecological point of view but also from the social one. Both are extremely important in future forest protection and sustainable use of forest by local communities.

Abstract

Forests grow and their biomass increases; they absorb carbon from the atmosphere and store it in plant tissue. Understanding the biomass of forest vegetation is essential for determining the storage of carbon in the dominant tree component and computing carbon cycling at a regional as well as global level. This book consisting of five chapters will give a comprehensive understanding of biomass production vis-

Abstract

The history and past management of trees within woodlands are the main objectives of this book. The authors show four points of view about one theme: silvicultures. Wood pasture systems of South East England and Northern Italy, Spanish pollard forests, and Portuguese montado are great examples of European ancient forests. Reconstruction of forest ecology, management, protection, and the understanding of these silvicultures from different perspectives are the main values of this monograph. The authors would like to make all readers aware of the value of ancient forests as cultural and socioecosystem services.

Abstract

Climate scenarios suggest that current forest stands will face radically different temperature and precipitation conditions in the future. Developing future strategies for forest management in the face of uncertain and highly variable forecasts of future site conditions is a great challenge. Here we have analyzed transnational case studies dealing with different manifestations of climate change effects. We intend to stimulate the discussion on management strategies to adapt forests in the Alps to climate change risks. The presented results are derived from the INTERREG project ""Management Strategies to Adapt Alpine Space Forests to Climate Change Risks"" that was implemented within the framework of the European Territorial Cooperation ""Alpine Space Programme"" 2007-2013.
