  • Biomass Burning and Climate

    The burning of biomass - forests, grasslands, and agricultural fields after the harvest - is much more widespread and extensive than previously believed; most biomass burning is thought to be initiated by humans and is on the increase. This comprehensive volume is the first to consider biomass burning as a global phenomenon and to assess its impact on the atmosphere, on climate, and on the biosphere itself. The 63 chapters by 158 scientists - including leading biomass burn researchers from third-world countries, such as Brazil, Nigeria, Zaire, India, and China, where biomass burning is so prevalent - point to biomass burning as a significant driver of global change on our planet.Global Biomass Burning provides a convenient and current reference on such topics as the remote sensing of biomass burning from space, the geographical distribution of burning; the combustion products of burning in tropical, temperate, and boreal ecosystems; burning as a global source of atmospheric gases and particulates; the impact of biomass burning gases and particulates on global climate; and the role of biomass burning on biodiversity and past global extinctions.Also included are contributions on the importance of biomass burning from the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program: A Study of Global Change and from the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry Project, as well as policy options prepared by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for managing biomass burning to mitigate global climate change.Joel S. Levine is Senior Research Scientist in the Atmospheric Sciences Division, NASA Langley Research Center and is the Principal Investigator of NASA's research program on global biomass burning, Biospheric Research Program, Office of Space Sciences and Applications.

  • Ecological disturbance maintains and promotes biodiversity in an artificial plant ecology

    A model of plant growth, competition and reproduction in three dimensions was constructed using L-systems to simulate plant growth, ray tracing to simulate sunlight and shading, and a steady-state genetic algorithm to simulate evolution by natural selection. Simulated plant growth conformed to expected trade-offs between, for instance, growing up and growing out. Simulated cohorts exhibited conventional population-level phenomena such as obeying the self-thinning law. Competition between species was simulated under various disturbance regimes. Undisturbed, a K-selected type of plant species dominated at equilibrium. However, under certain disturbance regimes, diverse life- history strategies were able to coexist at equilibrium, and even speciate

  • A Systems Framework For Sustainability

    This chapter approaches sustainability as an emergent holistic property of hard, soft, or hybrid systems including large and often complex system of systems. In the concept of sustainable systems within the realm of Gaia, such attributes should include energy, natural resources and ecosystem dependencies, environmental stability, technology safety and security and dependability, biodiversity, resource cycling, human-nature interactive complexity and biogeochemical cycles. A large and complex system of systems can possess a wide range of sustainability qualities at macro level. The systems framework is developed and represented in weighted factors analysis methodology (WeFA). The macro concept of a sustainable system is qualitatively assessed for the sustainability of macro systems, such as global economic system, environmental system, transportation system, information system, agriculture system, energy and global climate system. The chapter focuses on investing in network security that should always seek to move the organization nearer to securing the entire network.
