[Download] Global Soil Biodiversity Atlas

The Global Soil Biodiversity Atlas is a collection of images, text, and figures presenting the importance of soil biology to policy makers, experts, and general readers alike. Key highlights include:

* Soil biodiversity supports many services essential to human beings including: plant growth, water and climate regulation, and disease control among others.
* Soil biodiversity is increasingly under threats due to several pressures acting on soils.
* Interventions to reduce the impact of threats to soil biodiversity are available and should be widely adopted.
* Policies to protect and value soil biodiversity are still at an early stage and need to be further developed.

Tools in Fluvial Geomorphology, 2nd Edition

Fluvial Geomorphology studies the biophysical processes acting in rivers, and the sediment patterns and landforms resulting from them. It is a discipline of synthesis, with roots in geology, geography, and river engineering, and with strong interactions with allied fields such as ecology, engineering and landscape architecture. This book comprehensively reviews tools used in fluvial geomorphology, at a level suitable to guide the selection of research methods for a given question. Presenting an integrated approach to the interdisciplinary nature of the subject, it provides guidance for researchers and professionals on the tools available to answer questions on river restoration and management.
Thoroughly updated since the first edition in 2003 by experts in their subfields, the book presents state-of-the-art tools that have revolutionized fluvial geomorphology in recent decades, such as physical and numerical modelling, remote sensing and GIS, new field techniques, advances in dating, tracking and sourcing, statistical approaches as well as more traditional methods such as the systems framework, stratigraphic analysis, form and flow characterisation and historical analysis.
