Conservation Agriculture by Muhammad Farooq and Kadambot Siddique
English | 2014 | ISBN: 3319116193 | 665 pages | PDF | 20 MB

Conservation Agriculture
Conservation agriculture-consisting of four components including permanent soil cover, minimum soil disturbance, diversified crop rotations and integrated weed management-is considered the principal pathway to sustainable agriculture and the conservation of natural resources and the environment. Leading researchers in the field describe the basic principles of conservation agriculture, and synthesize recent advances and developments in conservation agriculture research. This book is a ready reference on conservation agriculture and reinforces the understanding for its utilization to develop environmentally sustainable and profitable food production systems. The book describes various elements of conservation agriculture; highlights the associated breeding and modeling efforts; analyses the experiences and challenges in conservation agriculture in different regions of the world; and proposes some pragmatic options and new areas of research in this very important area of agriculture.

Agroecology, Ecosystems, and Sustainability (Advances in Agroecology) by Noureddine Benkeblia
2014 | ISBN: 1482233010 | English | 393 pages | PDF | 12 MB

Agroecology, Ecosystems, and Sustainability
We hear a lot about how agriculture affects climate change and other environmental issues, but we hear little about how these issues affect agriculture. When we look at both sides of the issues, we can develop better solutions for sustainable agriculture without adversely affecting the environment. explores a modern vision of ecology and agricultural systems, so that crop production can be sustainably developed without further environmental degradation.

With contributions from experts from more than 20 countries, the book describes how to make the transition to modern agroecology to help the environment. It examines the global availability of natural resources and how agroecology could allow the world population to reach the goal of global sustainable ecological, agricultural, and food production systems. The book discusses important principles that regulate agroecological systems, including crop production, soil management, and environment preservation.

Making the link between theory and practices, the book includes examples of agroecology such as an interdisciplinary framework for the management of integrated production and conservation landscapes and the use of mechanized rain-fed farming and its ecological impact on drylands. An examination of how ecology and agriculture can be allied to ensure food production and security without threatening our environment, the text shows you how natural resources can be used in a manner to create a "symbiosis" to preserve ecological systems and develop agriculture.

Piles and Pile Foundations

Piles and Pile Foundations by Carlo Viggiani, Alessandro Mandolini, Gianpiero Russo
2012 | ISBN: 0415490669 | English | 289 pages | PDF | 26 MB

Piles and Pile Foundations
Piled foundations are generally designed using empirical methods, in particular the traditional capacity based approach on which the majority of codes of practice are based. However in recent years the analysis of pile groups and piled rafts has undergone substantial development in the light of new research and the mechanisms for the interactions between piles, soil and rafts or caps have been largely clarified. Paradoxically, with relatively large piled rafts it has been found that a design based on the criterion of serviceability, with the limitation of absolute and/or differential settlement, not only allows a more rational and economical design, but is also simpler and more reliable than one based on the traditional approach.

This book provides an overview of present design practice of piled foundations, under both vertical and horizontal loads, and then a presentation of recent advances in the analysis and design of piled rafts. Altogether it forms a thorough guide to the design and analysis of efficient and effective piled rafts, and it also serves as a useful design handbook for traditional pile foundations.

China Contested: Western Powers in East Asia

Matthew J. Flynn "China Contested: Western Powers in East Asia"
Chelsea House Publications | English | 2006-07-30 | ISBN: 079108650X | 132 pages | PDF | 2,4 MB

China Contested: Western Powers in East Asia
Riding the wave of one of the most accelerated economic expansions in history, China is on the brink of emerging as a global juggernaut. One of the chief reasons for its success has been its ability to unite itself, expel the physical presence of Western powers from its soil, and reoccupy Hong Kong and Macao. "" examines the country's artificial divisions over time, tracing interference by the West back to the early 16th century. This intrusion peaked during the establishment of Western spheres of influence in the late 19th century, yet it continues to resonate today with the standoff over Taiwan. Author Matthew J. Flynn points out that while China has endured many divisions throughout its past, the borders imposed by the West were strictly political and had no geographic or historical basis. "China Contested" will help students grasp the concept that China's determination to be recognized as a great power coincided with its resolve to eliminate the arbitrary borders created by the West.

Manual for the Control of Fire in Peatlands and peatland forest by Wahyu Catur Adinugroho, I Nyoman N. Suryadiputra, Bambang Hero Saharjo, Labueni Siboro
English | ISBN: 979993737X | 2005 | 183 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Manual for the Control of Fire in Peatlands and peatland forest
Land and forest fire is a serious problem which Indonesia has to face in the dry season almost every year. Such fires occur not only on dry land but also on wetlands (mainly peatlands). Peatland forest fire is much more difficult to handle than fires on mineral soil or highland plains.

This because the fire spreads not only through the vegetation on the surface of the peat but also through the underlying layer of peat itself, so it is difficult to determine the direction in which it is spreading. The only really effective way to extinguish peatland fires, especially when the fire has penetrated into very deep layers of peat, is from nature (i.e. heavy rain). Human fire-fighting efforts, besides requiring vast amounts of money and manpower, are not certain to extinguish the fires completely.
