  • Adaptation and Evolution in Marine Environments, Volume 1by Guido di Prisco; Cinzia Verde

    Springer 2012; US$ 159.00

    The poles undergo climate changes exceeding those in the rest of the world in terms of their speed and extent, and have a key role in modulating the climate of the Earth. Ecosystems adapted to polar environments are likely to become vulnerable to climate changes. Their responses allow us to analyse and foresee the impact of changes at lower latitudes.... more...

  • Anfänge globaler Umweltpolitikby Thorsten Schulz-Walden

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2013; US$ 77.00

    Today, environmental security is a socially compelling issue. As a historian, the author shows that the connection between environment and security did not originate with the end of the Cold War. Rather, environmental concerns related to security policy were already evident in 1970. Then as now, international environmental problems that transcend borders... more...

This book offers a policy framework... more...

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) has become the recognized instrument to assess the ecological burdens and human health impacts connected with the complete life cycle (creation, use, end-of-life) of products, processes and activities, enabling the assessor to model the entire system from which products are derived or in which processes and activities operate.... more...

    The environment inflames passions in people on all points of the political spectrum.

The model considers both the total ecological system and the socio-economic situational changes. The purpose... more...

  • The Compromise of Liberal Environmentalismby Steven Bernstein

    Columbia University Press 2012; US$ 29.99

    The most significant shift in environmental governance over the last thirty years has been the convergence of environmental and liberal economic norms toward "liberal environmentalism"—which predicates environmental protection on the promotion and maintenance of a liberal economic order. Steven Bernstein assesses the reasons for this historical shift,... more...
