Title: Ecosystems: Issues and problems. (Latest citations from the ABI/Inform database). Published Search

Abstract

The bibliography contains citations concerning issues and problems relating to ecosystems in different parts of the world. Preservation of resources, environmental protection, industrial impacts on ecosystems, ecological economics, biodiversity of specific ecosystems, and effects of deforestation and erosion are examined. Citations review impacts of human inhabitants, eco-tourism, and alien species on an ecosystem. The relationship to an ecosystem of pests and microbial infections is covered, and long-range planning for ecosystems is cited. (Contains 50-250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.) (Copyright NERAC, Inc. 1995)

  • The bibliography contains citations concerning the effects of acidification on fresh water ecosystems. Algae and diatom distribution, survival and reproduction rates of specific fish species under acid lake conditions, and tolerance to stress caused by acidic conditions in fresh water ecosystems are studied. Effects of water pH on trace metal toxicity to fresh water organisms are briefly considered. Control and reduction of acidification are excluded from this bibliography. (Contains 250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
  • This bibliography contains citations concerning developments and applications of field theory and computational techniques for solving electromagnetic field problems in eddy current analysis of electrical equipment and components, electrically conductive structures, and magnetic materials. Topics include finite element and boundary element methods, mathematical modelling, and surface impedance techniques for the solutions of transient and steady-state eddy current problems. Eddy current losses in power transmission lines and ferromagnetic materials are discussed. Citations concerning electromagnetic field problems in electric machines, electromagnetic shielding, and skin effects in electrical conductors are excluded and examined in separate bibliographies. (Contains a minimum of 75 citations andmore » includes a subject term index and title list.)« less
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning the Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) database issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The TRI database was begun by EPA in response to Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986, which required EPA to establish an inventory by states of routine toxic chemical emissions from certain facilities. There are over 300 chemicals and categories on these lists. The reporting requirement applies to owners and operators of manufacturing facilities that employ 10 or more full-time employees and that manufacture, process, or otherwise use amore » tested toxic chemical in excess of specified threshold quantities. The data file is contained on diskettes in dBASE III format or LOTUS 1-2-3 format available from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS). (Contains 250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)« less
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning the biochemical decomposition of naturally occurring organic matter in seawater. The citations examine the chemical and physical mechanisms of degredation, and factors that influence the decomposition rate, such as acidity, salinity, temperature and pressure. Other topics include technologies for biofouling control, microbially influenced corrosion, and eutrophication of marine environments. The biodegredation of chemical pollutants is discussed in a related bibliography. (Contains 250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning air pollution control technology and various methods for desulfurization of coal combustion streams. Examples include fluidized bed and other combustion modifications, and the removal of sulfur dioxide from flue gas. Proper monitoring of the effluent to meet the established atmospheric standards is also discussed. Applications in powerplants, steam boilers, furnaces, kilns, and gas turbines are presented. (Contains 250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
