  • Environment and Historyby William Beinart; Peter Coates

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 47.95

    The influence of human economies and cultures on ecosystems is particularly striking in the new worlds into which Europeans have expanded over the past five hundred years. Using a comparative and multidisciplinary approach, Beinart and Coates examine this neglected aspect of the history of settler incursion and dominance in two frontier nations, the... more...

  • Tales from the Journey of the Deadby Alan Boye

    UNP - Nebraska 2014; US$ 26.95

    One hundred miles south of Albuquerque, two parallel chains of mountains isolate a 120-mile jumble of black rock, dry lake beds, flesh-colored sand, and desolation. This is the Jornada del Muerto , the Journey of the Dead. So named because of a particular death centuries ago, this desert has witnessed many tales of loss and destruction. Alan Boye... more...

  • Chaos in Ecologyby J. M. Cushing; Robert F. Costantino; Brian Dennis; Robert Desharnais; Shandelle Marie Henson

    Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 122.00

    It is impossible to predict the exact behavior of all biological systems and how these same systems are exemplified by patterns of complexity and regularity. Decades of research in ecology have documented how these sorts of patterns are the consequences of deceptively simple rules that determine the nature of the patterns created. Chaos in Ecology... more...
