Poised between soil and sky, forest canopies represent a critical point of exchange between the atmosphere and the earth, yet until recently, they remained a largely unexplored frontier. This title describes methods for reaching the canopy and ways to measure how the canopy, atmosphere, and forest floor interact.

Children naturally are fascinated by the world around them, exploring the make-up of their world, including the animals, plants, and organisms that inhabit it, at an early age. Hands-On Ecology develops children's fascination with their world by giving them a front-row seat in the exploration of various ecological habitats. The book gives teachers the tools they need to create an extensive, in-depth study of ecology, including background information on ecosystems, how to set up a hands-on study of their local ecosystem, a look at how human populations affect the environment, and viable ways classrooms can contribute to conservationism.

The Beaver

As this book shows, the beaver is a keystone species-their skills as foresters and engineers create and maintain ponds and wetlands that increase biodiversity, purify water, and prevent large-scale flooding.

The Beaver: Its Life and Impact is designed to satisfy the curiosity and answer the questions of anyone with an interest in these animals, from students who enjoy watching beaver ponds at nature centers to homeowners and land managers. Color and black-and-white photographs document every aspect of beaver behavior and biology, the variety of their constructions, and the habitats that depend on their presence. A second edition of The Beaver: Ecology and Behavior of a Wetland Engineer, published by Cornell University Press under its Comstock Publishing Associates imprint in 2003, this book has been revised throughout and includes a new section on population genetics and features updated data about the beaver's range in North America, reintroduction efforts in Europe, and information about the world's largest beaver dam, discovered in northern Alberta in 2010 and visible from space, as well as the most current bibliography on the subject. As this book shows, the beaver is a keystone species-their skills as foresters and engineers create and maintain ponds and wetlands that increase biodiversity, purify water, and prevent large-scale flooding. Biologists have long studied their daily and seasonal routines, family structures, and dispersal patterns. As human development encroaches into formerly wild areas, property owners and government authorities need new, nonlethal strategies for dealing with so-called nuisance beavers. At the same time, the complex behavior of beavers intrigues visitors at parks and other wildlife viewing sites because it is relatively easy to observe. The Beaver:

Limnology, stream ecology, and wetland ecology all share an interdisciplinary perspective of inland aquatic habitats. Scientists working in these fields explore the roles of geographic position, physical and chemical properties, and the other biota on the different kinds of plants and animals living in freshwaters. How do these creatures interact with each other and with their physical environment? In what ways have humans impacted aquatic habitats? By what methods do freshwater ecologists study these environments? With this new laboratory manual, Havel provides a variety of accessible hands-on exercises to illuminate key concepts in freshwater ecology. These exercises include a mixture of field trips, indoor laboratory exercises, and experiments, with some portions involving qualitative observations and others more quantitative. With the help of this manual, students will develop an appreciation for careful techniques used in the laboratory and in the field, as well as an understanding of how to collect accurate field notes, keep a well-organized lab notebook, and write clear scientific reports.
