Ecological Continuum from the Changjiang (Yangtze River) Watersheds to the East China Sea Continental Margin by Jing Zhang
English | PDF | 2015 | 209 Pages | ISBN : 3319163388 | 16.9 MB

The book provides a cross-disciplinary and multi-scale assessment of a world top river, the Changjiang (Yangtze River) and its adjacent marginal environment, the East China Sea. The studies in this volume bridges the watersheds of the river and the marginal sea through a combined approach of hydro-dynamics, geochemistry, sedimentary processes, ecology and fishery. The response of ecosystem to the external driving forces is examined via process-oriented observations, mesocosm experiments and numerical simulations in combination. The lessons learnt from the case studies of Changjiang and East China Sea can be beneficial to those who are doing inter-disciplinary researches in the continuum from watersheds to continental margins.

Ahab's Rolling Sea: A Natural History of "Moby-Dick"

Ahab's Rolling Sea: A Natural History of "Moby-Dick"

Ahab's Rolling Sea: A Natural History of "Moby-Dick" by Richard J. King
English | November 11th, 2019 | ISBN: 022651496X | 464 pages | EPUB | 14.47 MB

Although Herman Melville's Moby-Dick is beloved as one of the most profound and enduring works of American fiction, we rarely consider it a work of nature writing—or even a novel of the sea. Yet Pulitzer Prize–winning author Annie Dillard avers Moby-Dick is the "best book ever written about nature," and nearly the entirety of the story is set on the waves, with scarcely a whiff of land. In fact, Ishmael's sea yarn is in conversation with the nature writing of Emerson and Thoreau, and Melville himself did much more than live for a year in a cabin beside a pond. He set sail: to the far remote Pacific Ocean, spending more than three years at sea before writing his masterpiece in 1851.
