An Introduction to Global Environmental Issues presents a comprehensive stimulating introduction to the key environmental issues presently threatening our global environment. Offering an authoritative introduction to the key topics, a source of latest environmental information, and an innovative stimulus for debate, this is an essential book for all those studying or concerned with global environmental issues.
In this second edition, the most topical global environmental issues are brought more clearly into focus. Explanations of the evolution of the earth's natural systems (hydrosphere, biosphere, geosphere, ecosphere) provide the essential understanding of the scientific concepts, processes and historical background behind key environmental issues. Contemporary socio-economic, cultural and political considerations are explored and important conceptual approaches such as Gaian hypotheses and Chaos Theory are introduced. Human impact and management of the natural environment, and concerns for maintaining biodiversity are emphasised throughout.
Specific features include:
* Case studies drawn from across the world
* Superb illustrations: 4-colour plate sections; a wealth of informative diagrams
* Glossary of key terms, with key concepts highlighted throughout the text
* Annotated guides to Further Reading
* Chapter summaries and key points
A new Instructors' Manual is available to accompany the text

Come and visit CERES, a place where people learn to change the way we live. Find out about how we are all a part of the web of life and how we can live without damaging the environment. CERES is having a go at doing just this.

Blueprints is a series that provides a variety of graded texts to meet the different learning levels within your classroom.

With a colourful and eye-catching design, students are provided with a firm scaffold of learning experiences to support discovery learning, and the development of higher order thinking skills.

The streamlined approach teaches literacy along with other learning areas, one unit per term. The fiction and non-fiction topic books explore concepts introduced in the Big Ideas Book in greater depth. Interactive activities on the CD within each unit extend learning beyond the texts.


Science And Technology Of Semiconductor-on-insulator Structures And Devices Operating In A Harsh Environment

RRP $766.99

This proceedings volume archives the contributions of the speakers who attended the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on "Science and Technology of Semiconductor-On-Insulator Structures and Devices Operating in a Harsh Environment" held at the Sanatorium Puscha Ozerna, th th Kyiv, Ukraine, from 25 to 29 April 2004. The semiconductor industry has maintained a very rapid growth during the last three decades through impressive technological achievements which have resulted in products with higher performance and lower cost per function. After many years of development semiconductor-on-insulator materials have entered volume production and will increasingly be used by the manufacturing industry. The wider use of semiconductor (especially silicon) on insulator materials will not only enable the benefits of these materials to be further demonstrated but, also, will drive down the cost of substrates which, in turn, will stimulate the development of other novel devices and applications. In itself this trend will encourage the promotion of the skills and ideas generated by researchers in the Former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe and their incorporation in future collaborations.
