The water depth is 5-10ft. Owing to peculiar geographic location as well as microclimatic conditions several type of life forms are met with. Out of which the aquatic species deserves special mention being one of the most valuable and productive ecosystems of the world. This lake has its own reputation among the wetlands of the state.The scenic beauty accomplished with colourful flowers and birds have attracted the nature lovers in the recent past.Out of the 149 species,75 species are dicotyledons and 74 are monocotyledons.

The wetland is a murky, moist, and mysterious world. Atop its glittering surface and beneath its shadowy depths, birds, bass, minks, and muskrats struggle to survive and flourish. Madeleine Dunphy's lyrical prose shows the relationships between the wetland's plants and animals, giving young readers a clear picture of how each living creature depends on the others for survival. Illustrator Wayne McLoughlin adds stunning visuals, with luminous, detailed paintings that convey the fragile beauty and complexity of this critically important ecological community.

Ecology and Floristics of Aquatic Macrophytes from Urban Wetlands LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The present study emphasizes impacts of habitat modification of urban wetland on plant species composition in rapidly developed Pune suburban area. Earlier Pune urban wetlands were rich ecosystems providing a habitat for a wide variety of aquatic life. Recently it has been influenced by many factors like habitat loss, overgrazing, high human population pressure and new trend in urban development around the lake. 173 aquatic macrophytes were reported from selected wetlands i.e. Pashan Lake (121) followed by Bhosari Lake (93), Akurdi Lake (86) and Katraj Lake (67). When compared with previous literature it shows net 100% loss of wetland area in case of Bhosari Lake. The phytosociological parameters shows relationships between plant communities and species composition. There was a positive correlation between water quality and composition of macrophyte species and direct correlation between anthropogenic activities and number and composition of macrophytes. The existing and potential effects of wetland activities on adjacent and other ecosystems were considered while preparing the management plan for the eco-restoration of Pashan Lake.

In Africa "only food runs...and there's nothing you can outrun!" In the tradition of Bill Bryson, a new writer brings us the lively adventures and wit of an African safari guide. Despite that fact that "I had none of the qualities you would expect of a rugged bush man...I'm markedly uncoordinated, can't repair vehicles or understand how they work, I don't like guns, and sweat profusely when nervous or excited..which is exactly how watching animals makes me feel", Peter Allison works as a top safari guide in the Okavango Delta. In this oasis of wetland in the middle of the Kalahari desert, rich with wildlife, he caters to the whims of his wealthy clients, he often has to overcome the impulse to run as far away from them as he can, as these tourists are sometimes more dangerous than a pride of lions! Full of outrageous-but-true tales of the people and animals he has encountered - the half-naked missing member of the British royal family; the squirrel that overdosed on malaria pills; the monkeys with an underwear fetish; and last, but by no means least, "Spielberg" the video-obsessed Japanese tourist - Allison's hilarious stories reveal his good-natured scorn for himself, as well as others. Allison's humour is exceeded only by his love and respect for the animals, and his goal is to limit any negative exposure by planning trips that are minimally invasive - unfortunately it doesn't always work out that way, as he and his clients discover to their cost when they find themselves up to their necks in a hippo-infested watering hole! Full of essential wisdom like "Don't run,whatever you do" and "never stand behind a frightened zebra" (they are prone to explosive flatulence when scared!), this is a wonderful and vivid portrait of what the life of a safari guide is really like.

The updated edition of the classic, fundamental book on weed science Weed Science provides a detailed examination of the principles of integrated weed management with important details on how chemical herbicides work and should be used. This revised Fourth Edition addresses recent developments affecting weed science. These include the increased use of conservation-tillage systems, environmental concerns about the runoff of agrochemicals, soil conservation, crop biotechnology, resistance of weeds and crops to herbicides, weed control in nonagricultural settings and concerns regarding invasive plants, wetland restoration, and the need for a vastly improved understanding of weed ecology. Current management practices are covered along with guidance for selecting herbicides and using them effectively. To serve as a more efficient reference, herbicides are cross-listed by chemical and brand name and grouped by mechanism of action and physiological effect rather than chemical structure. In addition, an introduction to organic chemistry has been added to familiarize readers with organic herbicides. Also included are guidelines on weed-control practices for specific crops or situations, such as small grains, row crops, horticultural crops, lawns and turf, range land, brush, and aquatic plant life. Generously supplemented with 300 drawings, photographs, and tables, Weed Science is an essential book for students taking an introductory course in weed science, as well as a reference for agricultural advisors, county agents, extension specialists, and professionals throughout the agrochemical industry.

The Fate and Effects of Oil in Freshwater Springer Netherlands

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Freshwater is a most precious natural resource. To the developed world, refreshing, untainted water is presumed from the taps of millions of householders. The many rivers, streams, ponds and lakes are for the pleasure and enjoyment of the leisure hours of urban dweller and rural inhabitant alike-boating, fishing, sailing and swimming come readily to mind. To the agriculturalist and industrialist it is often the cornerstone of their enterprises. To the environmentalist and naturalist it is the basis of the wetland and open water communities which provide the habitats for a wealth of flora and fauna. In the developing world the emphasis is very different. A spring, well, river or swamp is the basis of day-to-day survival for family, livestock and crops. Subsistence fishing is often the major source of protein. Freshwater may be the unwitting purveyor of disease but with good management this can be regulated and monitored. But Man by nature, is a selfish species who tends to have scant regard for the quality of life of future generations. The much publicised destruction of forests is a notorious example. Not so well-known is the pressure on one of the world's most fragile ecosystems, the wetlands.

Biodiversity has traditionally emphasized on the distribution and variation of all species on earth. Biodiversity is both essential for our existence and intrinsically valuable in its own right. When species are moved to new locations that offers conditions for life similar to their native habitats, they may exploit vacant ecological niches and grow quickly, especially if they have no natural predators in their new settings. We also want to promote a sense of urgency for the need to protect wetland diversity.
