CENTURY: Modeling Ecosystem Responses to Climate Change, Version 4 (VEMAP ) Summary: The CENTURY model, Version 4, is a general model of plant-soil nutrient cycling that is being used to simulate carbon and nutrient dynamics for different types of ecosystems including grasslands, agricultural lands, forests, and savannas. "An excellent discussion of the similarities and differences among the views of many twentieth century ecologists."—Frank T. Kuserk, Science Books and Films "The book will be of obvious interest to ecosystem ecologists, but the book is also a quick and useful history for those not trained at institutions with ecosystem programs."—.
Intervention ecology covers a wide range of active interventions in ecosystem dynamics that are increasingly required in order to ensure the continuation of ecosystem service provision (Daily et al. ) and biodiversity conservation (Janzen , Ehrlich and Pringle , Cole and Yung , Hobbs et al. ).Cited by: Novel ecosystems are human-built, modified, or engineered niches of the exist in places that have been altered in structure and function by human agency. Novel ecosystems are part of the human environment and niche (including urban, suburban, and rural), they lack natural analogs, and they have extended an influence that has converted more than .
Ecosystem services, outputs, conditions, or processes of natural systems that directly or indirectly benefit humans or enhance social welfare. Ecosystem services can benefit people in many ways, either directly or as inputs into the production of other goods and services. For example, the. This book provides a systematic review of nature-based solutions and their potential to address current environmental challenges. In the 21st century, society is faced by rapid urbanisation and population growth, degradation and loss of natural capital and associated ecosystem services, an increase in natural disaster risks, and climate change.

Washington, DC: The National Academies Press. doi: / ×. Ecology is a new science and considered as an important branch of biological science, having only become prominent during the second half of a century. Ecological thought is derivative of established currents in philosophy, particularly from ethics and politics.
Its history stems all the way back to the 4th century. The book will inform academics, policy makers and society in general of the benefits of healthy functioning riverine systems, and will increase awareness of the wide range of ecosystem goods and services they provide.
