Prophets of the Great Spirit offers an in-depth look at the work of a diverse group of Native American visionaries who forged new, syncretic religious movements that provided their peoples with the ideological means to resist white domination. By blending ideas borrowed from Christianity with traditional beliefs, they transformed “high” gods or a distant and aloof creator into a powerful Reviews: 2. Biological invasions are a major force of change, affecting many dimensions of life on Earth. Invasions result when species colonize new geographic regions, which are disjunct (isolated) from existing populations. Humans have dramatically altered invasion dynamics, especially with the global expansion of trade in modern times. Historically, geographic barriers such as oceans.
This study was aimed to determine the patterns as well as the effects of biological, anthropogenic, and climatic factors on plant invasions in China. About volumes of national and regional floras were employed to compile a naturalized flora of China. Habit, life form, origin, distribution, and uses of naturalized plants were also analyzed to determine patterns on invasion. This book is the result of a meeting of world-leading experts, in Rio de Janeiro, where the state of the art of this field was reviewed. Topics covered include the molecular analysis of bio-invasions, the recent developments in marine biotechnology, the factors affecting levels of genetic variation and population structure in marine organisms.

Biological Invasions publishes research and synthesis papers on patterns and processes of biological invasions in terrestrial, freshwater, and marine (including brackish) ecosystems. Also of interest are scholarly papers on management and policy issues as they relate to conservation programs and the global amelioration or control of invasions.
About this book. Provides a compelling outline of the social and economic implications that may occur if biological pollutants continue unchecked, and identifies the range of threatening colonists and looks at their effect on three broad ecosystems - fields, forests and water, detailing the damage being done to agriculture, forestry and fishing.

But one useful approach to the problem is a concept called "weediness." A text book case of weediness can be found in the red fire ant (Solenopsis. The new book Biological Globalisation – Bio-invasions and their impacts on nature, the economy and public Bio-invasions book is a thorough and informative overview of all aspects of bioglobalisation.
It describes its nature and scope, as well as history, drivers and mechanisms. This book integrates biological, agricultural, medical, historical and economic knowledge on biological globalisation.
It treats invading micro-organisms, plants and animals alike in their multiple impacts on nature and biodiversity, the economy and human health.

An invasive species is a species that is not native to a specific location (an introduced species), and that has a tendency to spread to a degree believed to cause damage to the environment, human economy or human health. The term as most often used applies to introduced species that adversely affect the habitats and bioregions they invade economically, environmentally, or ecologically.

[Wouter van der Weijden; R J Leewis; Pieter Bol] -- Bioglobalisation is anything but new. The exotic fungus Phytophtora has threatened European potato harvests sincewhile the Mongolian conqueror Kublai Khan, as early as the thirteenth century.
Biological exchanges and invasions are important themes in history. Over the course of the Earth’s history there have been many biological invasions. Think for example of the species that took advantage of land bridges during ice ages, when sea levels were lower, to expand into new areas where they did not live before.
These processes [ ]. This book focuses on research advances in AI that benefit the conservation of wildlife, forests, coral reefs, rivers, and other natural resources. It presents how the joint efforts of researchers in computer science, ecology, economics, and psychology help address the goals of the United Nations' Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Introduction. The fauna and flora of the Black Sea are formed mainly by the Mediterranean and Pontian relic complexes of species. The invasion by the Mediterranean species of the Black Sea (or “Mediterranization”; Pusanow, ; Puzanov, ) is a natural process which started after the opening of the Bosphorus Strait (Istanbul) about – years ago (Arkhangelsky and Batalina.
Bioinvasions and Globalization synthesises our current knowledge of the ecology and economics of biological invasions, providing an in-depth evaluation of the science and its implications for managing the causes and consequences of one of the most pressing environmental issues facing humanity today.
This book analyzes the main drivers of. Under the Convention, all ships in international traffic are required to manage their ballast water and sediments to a certain standard, according to a ship-specific ballast water management plan.
All ships will also have to carry a ballast water record book and an international ballast water management certificate.Bio-invasion is jeopardizing Mediterranean marine life “We hope that this new research will be used to construct a science-based effective management of marine bio-invasions and prevent, or at least minimize, the influx of additional non-indigenous species into the Mediterranean,” said Galil.
Books, battles and magnifying glasses.The economic, social and environmental impacts arising from the transfer and establishment of non indigenous marine species (NIMS) mediated through ship hull biofouling and ballast water discharges in the coastal marine environment require a regional approach to manage bio-invasions.
