    Document Overview:
    Many people are now aware of the environment, and want to reduce their footprint on the environment but this is difficult to do if they need relief from aching legs at the end of a long day at work Most conventional recovery systems use oil because they work on the muscles need soaps and detergent to wash towels after the work has been done Light Manual Muscle Relaxation is a simple alternative environmentally friendly recovery system that works with the muscles so needs no oil, towels or soaps to wash them in Light Manual Muscle Relaxation used on aching legs after a full day spent on them at work does not use massage oil as it works with the muscles not on them

  • The Coevolutionary Process
    The Coevolutionary Process

    $27.00

    Document Overview:
    Traditional ecological approaches to species evolution have frequently studied too few species, relatively small areas, and relatively short time spans. In The Coevolutionary Process, John N. Thompson advances a new conceptual approach to the evolution of species interactions—the geographic mosaic theory of coevolution. Thompson demonstrates how an integrated study of life histories, genetics, and the geographic structure of populations yields a broader understanding of coevolution, or the development of reciprocal adaptations and specializations in interdependent species.Using examples of species interactions from an enormous range of taxa, Thompson examines how and when extreme specialization evolves in interdependent species and how geographic differences in specialization, adaptation, and the outcomes of interactions shape coevolution. Through the geographic mosaic theory, Thompson bridges the gap between the study of specialization and coevolution in local communities and the study of broader patterns seen in comparisons of the phylogenies of interacting species.

  • Genes in the Field
    Genes in the Field

    $27.00

    Document Overview:
    The diversity of crop plants is one of our most important biological resources, and the most important source of crop genes are the fields of peasant farmers in regions where crop domestication and evolution have occurred. Today, however, crop genes are threatened by social and technological change such as human population growth, the use of new agricultural technologies, the development of new varieties, and the commercialization of agriculture. Gene banks have been successful in capturing much of the genetic diversity of crop species, but it also essential that the environmental systems where the crop genes evolve also be conserved.Genes in the Field provides an interdisciplinary foundation for an important new conservation program: maintaining biological resources of crop plants within the systems where they have evolved. The book offers a truly global vision of the on-farm conservation movement and, like no other before it, provides a comprehensive review of the issues and challenges of on-farm conservation of genetic resources. The book's chapters are written by a collection of outstanding scholars and academics from a variety of disciplines; they include biologists, agronomists, anthropologists, economists, lawyers, and agricultural development specialists.Genes in the Field is truly global in scope and multidisciplinary in character. It will appeal to a large, varied, and international audience. Its most general appeal will be to professionals in the fields of conservation and agricultural development, particularly those who are involved in planning or implementing conservation programs. For course work, the book will be appropriate for graduate programs in agricultural development and conservation.
