This book serves as an up-to-date introduction, as well as overview to modern trace fossil research and covers nearly all of the essential aspects of modern ichnology. Divided into three section, Trace Fossils covers the historical background and concepts of ichnology, on-going research problems, and indications about the possible future growth of the discipline and potential connections to other fields. This work is intended for a broad audience of geological and biological scientists. Workers new to the field could get a sense of the main concepts of ichnology and a clear idea of how trace fossil research is conducted. Scientists in related disciplines could find potential uses for trace fossils in their fields. And, established workers could use the book to check on the progress of their particular brand of ichnology. By design, there is something here for novice and veteran, insider and outsider, and for the biologically-oriented workers and for the sedimentary geologists. * Presents a review of the state of ichnology at the beginning of the 21st Century * Summarizes the basic concepts and methods of modern trace fossil research * Discusses crucial background information about the history of trace fossil research, the main concepts of ichnology, examples of current problems and future directions, and the potential connections to other disciplines within both biology and geology

Put Theory into Practice Scarcity of natural resources, higher costs, higher demand, and concerns about environmental pollution — under these circumstances, improving food supply worldwide with adequate quantity and quality is fundamental. Based on the author’s more than forty years of experience, The Use of Nutrients in Crop Plants builds a bridge between theoretical aspects of mineral nutrition and practical applicability of basic principles of fertilization and use efficiency of essential plant nutrients. Provides Authoritative and Practical Information The book explores how to maximize essential nutrients uptake and use efficiency by food crops and how to improve productivity without degrading the environment. It covers nutrients and their cycle in soil-plant systems, functions, and deficiency symptoms. The author includes management strategies that can lead to a reduction in the cost of crop production and environmental degradation. He emphasizes field conditions, crop production, and soil chemistry. Comprehensive coverage of essential nutrients and experimental results are accompanied by tables and figures of updated experimental data that make practical information easily accessible. A Valuable Tool for Improving Crop Yield Agricultural science is very dynamic in nature and fertilizer practices change with time due to the release of new cultivars and changing production practices in sustainable crop production systems. The Use of Nutrients in Crop Plants provides in-depth scientific information that is applicable through many methods of crop production. It is a valuable tool for improving crop yields at lower cost and less stress on the environment.

This book describes the first integrated soil and vegetation monitoring system for rangeland ecosystems and is also the only monitoring guide to address the increasingly popular concept of "rangeland health." Rather than focusing on any particular land management objective-such as livestock production, watershed protection, or biodiversity conservation-the manual describes how to monitor basic ecosystem attributes on which all land uses depend: soil and site stability, watershed function, and biotic integrity. The manual is divided into two volumes to facilitate its use by individuals with little or no background in science or land management. Volume I, "Quick Start," contains all of the information needed to begin monitoring. Volume II outlines monitoring program development, contains supplementary methods, and provides guidelines for data entry. A Special Topics section in Volume II describes how to adapt the protocols to address more specific land management objectives: riparian environments, livestock production, wildlife habitats, off-road vehicle and other recreation uses, fire, in vasive species, state and transition models, and remote sensing. The manual's value-neutral approach has facilitated adoption by a wide range of individuals and organizations, and the protocols described are already being applied by ranchers, environmental organizations, land management agencies, and the National Park Service. Nearly everything that we value about rangelands depends upon the three attributes on which these methods focus; monitoring them is like monitoring the foundation of our rangeland ecosystems. This book provides step-by-step instructions for putting these important methods intopractice.
