      In this book we will focus on Earth’s three major climate zones (climate types). There are many more then 3 climate zones; the Earth is an incredibly diverse place with great variability! But for the purposes of the introductory book we will look at the three most general categories: Tropical, Drylands and Temperate zones. Climatic Change is dedicated to the totality of the problem of climatic variability and change - its descriptions, causes, implications and interactions among these. The purpose of the journal is to provide a means of exchange among those working in different disciplines on .

    ECOLOGY: The Study of Ecosystems Ecology (from the Greek oikos meaning "house" or "dwelling", and logos meaning "discourse") is the study of the interactions of organisms with each other and their environment.

    Environmental Research is a multi-disciplinary journal publishing high quality and novel information about anthropogenic issues of global relevance and applicability in a wide range of environmental disciplines, and demonstrating environmental application in the real-world context. Coverage includes, but is not limited to, the following research topics and areas. Continuous climate warming in the last few decades has led to global climate anomalies, resulting in frequent drought events in arid/semiarid regions with fragile and sensitive ecological environment. The Mongolian Plateau (MP) is located at the mid-latitude arid/semiarid climate region, which is deemed as the most sensitive region in response to global climate : Laiquan Jin, Jiquan Zhang, Ruoyu Wang, Minghua Zhang, Yuhai Bao, Enliang Guo, Yongfang Wang.

The philosophical base of climate classification follows the same logic as all classifications and can be dealt with accordingly.

Classification is variously defined but is well described as the systematic grouping of objects or events into classes on the basis of properties or relationships they have in common. Such is certainly the case in the classification of climate. Climate is an abstract concept.

It represents the sum of all interacting atmospheric processes over a given period of time and, as such, does not exist at any given moment. Climate (from Ancient Greek klima, meaning inclination) is commonly defined as the weather averaged over a long period. The standard averaging period is 30 years, but other periods may be used depending on the purpose.

Climate also includes statistics other than the average, such as the magnitudes of day-to-day or year-to-year variations.

Soil is important to our society primarily because it provides the foundation of agriculture and forestry. Of course, soil is also a critical component for terrestrial ecosystems, and thus important to animals, plants, fungi, and microorganisms.

Soil plays a role in nearly all biogeochemical cycles on the Earth’s : Matthew R. Fisher. A levels. ABB-BBB, biology required. Other subjects can include chemistry, environmental science, geography, psychology, maths and physics. Citizenship studies, critical thinking, general studies and.

Topics covered includes: Climatic Elements and Their Global Distribution, Climatic Controls And Factors, Climatic Classification, Micro And Man-made Climates, Climate Change and Fluctuations, Science Of Biogeography, Ecosystem Concept, Patterns and Types Of Distribution Of Living Organisms, Vegetation Processes, World Vegetation Its.

Tropical rainforests are found in equatorial regions (Figure 1) are the most biodiverse terrestrial biome. This biodiversity is under extraordinary threat primarily through logging and deforestation for agriculture. Tropical rainforests have also been described as nature’s pharmacy because of the potential for new drugs that is largely hidden in the chemicals produced by the huge diversity Author: Matthew R.

It might sound like a nightmare to most people, but it was a necessary part of a recent exploration of human origins in South Africa as reported in the New York Times in September The stress on our water environment as a result of increased industrialization, which aids urbanization, is becoming very high thus reducing the availability of clean water.

Polluted water is of great concern to the aquatic organism, plants, humans, and climate and indeed alters the ecosystem. The preservation of our water environment, which is embedded in sustainable development, must be well Cited by: 5.

Geniune endeavour is required to minimize the gaps by intellectual and material inputs. The success of this course will depend on the initiative and drive of the. Faunal zones are associated with vegetational formations limited by climate. Though the eco-climate is ultimately fundamental it may increasingly be deduced from standard climate.

Climatic maps for East Africa have yet to be made. Characteristics of the area are complicated relief; slight annual but high daily range of temperature; rarity of frost, at least in screens; and marked droughts in Cited by: The book contains 14 chapters which illustrate the long history of indigenous knowledge and soil research, climate, geology and geomorphology, vegetation cover, soil forming factors and processes, major soils, properties and their classification.

Furthermore, it presents past climate change and paleosols, agroecological zones, soil fertility. We examined the climatic factors that may affect the temporal patterns of juvenile sea turtle cold-stunning and whether local extent and temporal scale oceanographic and climatic factors that induce cold-stunning are different for different species.

Literature from other climatic zones suggests that green manuring might offer significant benefits for soil carbon, biology, and function. Increases in soil organic C, carbon mineralization, and microbial biomass C and N were observed in a Chernozem on the semiarid Canadian prairies (Campbell et al., Our knowledge of the similarities and differences in ecological systems is vital to understanding the co-evolution of ecological factors.

This study proposes a multi-dimensional hydro-climatic similarity and classification framework based on Budyko theory. The framework employs the dryness index (DI), evaporative index (EI), and an empirical parameter (ω) to further sub-divide four Author: Jintao Liu, Shanshan Xu, Xiaole Han, Xi Chen, Ruimin He.

Ecoregionalization is the process by which a territory is classified in similar areas according to specific environmental and climatic factors.
