The Analytic Hierarchy Process in Natural Resource and Environmental Decision Making by Daniel Schmoldt

The Analytic Hierarchy Process in Natural Resource and Environmental Decision Making (Managing Forest Ecosystems) by Daniel Schmoldt
English | Dec 8, 2010 | ISBN: 9048157358 | 308 Pages | PDF | 9 MB

Decision making in land management involves preferential selection among competing alternatives. Often, such choices are difficult owing to the complexity of the decision context. Because the analytic hierarchy process (AHP, developed by Thomas Saaty in the 1970s) has been successfully applied to many complex planning, resource allocation, and priority setting problems in business, energy, health, marketing, natural resources, and transportation, more applications of the AHP in natural resources and environmental sciences are appearing regularly.
Encyclopedia of Energy, Natural Resource, and Environmental Economics

Encyclopedia of Energy, Natural Resource, and Environmental Economics by Jason Shogren
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0123750679 | ISBN-13: 9780123750679 | 1056 pages | PDF | 14,4 MB

Every decision about energy involves its price and cost. The price of gasoline and the cost of buying from foreign producers; the price of nuclear and hydroelectricity and the costs to our ecosystems; the price of electricity from coal-fired plants and the cost to the atmosphere. Giving life to inventions, lifestyle changes, geopolitical shifts, and things in-between, energy economics is of high interest to Academia, Corporations and Governments.

Cultivating Peace : Conflict and Collaboration in Natural Resource Management

Cultivating Peace : Conflict and Collaboration in Natural Resource Management
World Bank Publications | March 3, 2005 | ISBN: 0821346237 | 300 pages | PDF | 1.72 mb

Why does conflict occur over the use of natural resources? How are external factors built into local conflicts? What governing mechanisms are conducive to equitable and sustainable natural resource management by communities? When do local strategies for conflict management need to be complemented or replaced by external or new mechanisms? How can research help identify opportunities for turning conflict into collaboration? Why is collaboration in natural resource management so difficult? This book grapples with those questions. Case studies analyze specific natural resource conflicts in 10 countries and the interventions of people close to the conflicts (in some cases, the authors themselves). Four concept papers draw the case stories together around particular themes: culture, society, peace, and policy. The concept papers illustrate their main points with examples from the case studies, grounding concepts in concrete experience and raising broader questions for further study.
Biofilms in Medicine, Industry and Environmental Biotechnology: Characteristics, Analysis and Control (repost)

Biofilms in Medicine, Industry and Environmental Biotechnology: Characteristics, Analysis and Control by V. O'Flaherty
English | 1 Mar. 2003 | ISBN: 1843390191 | 608 Pages | PDF | 10 MB

Biofilms are of great practical importance for beneficial technologies such as water and wastewater treatment and bioremediation of groundwater and soil. In other settings biofilms cause severe problems, for example in 65% of bacterial infections currently treated by clinicians (particularly those associated with prosthetics and implants), accelerated corrosion in industrial systems, oil souring and biofouling.
