Emeritus Professor Nico Stehr and Prof Amanda Machin present how climate has migrated from being a taken for granted background in the drama known as human life and civilizations, to the forefront of concerns across society. They explain how it is becoming hard to ignore the potential repercussions of a changing climate, and the uneven impact of certain forms of human society and energy cultures that risk undermining their own environmental conditions.
Fungicide Resistance in North America, Second Edition, is a complete update of the 1988 edition. It describes the current state of fungicide development and management of fungicide resistance in primary pathogens of important agricultural and horticultural crops. Unlike other recently published books on fungicide resistance, this book focuses exclusively on the most significant resistance issues faced by agricultural producers in North America and especially the United States.
Amelia Moore has observed an evolution in the tourism industry in The Bahamas that reflects the dramatic changes happening around the world, especially the changing climate. In her new book, Destination Anthropocene: Science and Tourism in the Bahamas, the URI professor examines the tourism industry in this era of global change by focusing on the Bahamas as a microcosm of tourism around the world.
In the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton this week, Roth said his research suggests that the government needs to regulate the most deadly guns and make it harder for the public to buy them.
This updated evolutionary synthesis provides an accessible explanation for biological complexity that cuts through the confusion surrounding evolutionary theory in a practical way. In addition to a wide-ranging survey of proposed updates to the 'Modern Synthesis,' this title provides extraordinary new insights including Emergent Evolutionary Potential and the Generative Phenotype. Drawing on well-characterized empirical facts, "Rethinking Evolution" transcends classical Darwinian natural selection while retaining those core principles that have stood the test of time.
