Encyclopedia of Islands (Encyclopedias of the Natural World) By Rosemary G. Gillespie, David A. Clague
University of California Press | English | 2009-08-19 | ISBN: 0520256492 | 1111 pages | PDF | 51 MB

Islands have captured the imagination of scientists and the public for centuries–unique and rare environments, their isolation makes them natural laboratories for ecology and evolution. This authoritative, alphabetically arranged reference, featuring more than 200 succinct articles by leading scientists from around the world, provides broad coverage of all the island sciences. But what exactly is an island? The volume editors define it here as any discrete habitat isolated from other habitats by inhospitable surroundings. The Encyclopedia of Islands examines many such insular settings–oceanic and continental islands as well as places such as caves, mountaintops, and whale falls at the bottom of the ocean.
Encyclopedia of Tidepools and Rocky  Shores (Encyclopedias of the Natural World)

Mark W Denny, Steve Gaines Encyclopedia of Tidepools and Rocky Shores (Encyclopedias of the Natural World)
University of California Press | 2007 | ISBN: 0520251180 | 735 pages | PDF | 37,8 MB

Tidepools and rocky shores are among the most physically stressful environments on earth. When the tide is high, waves can sweep over plants and animals at velocities as high as 60 miles per hour, while at low tide, the same organisms dry up and bake in the sun. Yet despite this seeming inhospitality, tidepools and rocky shores are exceptionally complex and biologically diverse. This comprehensive encyclopedia is an authoritative, one-stop reference for everyone interested in the biology and ecology of this fascinating and uniquely accessible environment. Conveniently arranged alphabetically, nearly 200 wide-ranging entries written in clear language by scientists from around the world provide a state-of-the-art picture of tidepools and rocky shore science. From Abalones, Barnacles, and Climate Change through Seagrasses, Tides, and Wind, the articles discuss the animals and plants that live in tidepools, the physics and chemistry of the rocky shore environment, the ecological principles that govern tidepools, and many other interdisciplinary topics.
