Title:Hear Where We Are [electronic resource] : Sound, Ecology, and Sense of Place
Author(s): Michael Stocker
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Throughout history, hearing and sound perception have been typically framed in the context of how sound conveys information and how that information influences the listener. Hear Where We Are inverts this premise and examines howhumans and other hear ing animals use sound to establish acoustical relationships with their surroundings. This simple inversion reveals a panoply of possibilities by which we can re-evaluate how hearing animals use, produce, andperceive sound. Nuance in vocalizations become s ignals of enticement or boundary setting silence becomes a field ripe in auditory possibilities predator/prey relationships are infused with acoustic deception, and sounds that havebeen considered territorial cues become the fabric of cooperative acoustic al communities. This inversion also expands the context of sound perception into a larger perspective that centers on biological adaptation within acoustichabitats. Here, the rapid synchronized flight patterns of flocking birds and the tight maneuvering o f schooling fish becomes an acoustic engagement. Likewise, when stridulating crickets synchronize their summer evening chirrups, it hasmore to do with the cricket community monitoring their collective boundaries rather than individual crickets establishin g personal territory or breeding fitness. In Hear Where We Are the author continuously challenges manyof the bio-acoustic orthodoxies, reframing the entire inquiry into sound perception and communication. By moving beyond our common assumptions, many of t he mysteries of acoustical behavior become revealed, exposing a fresh and fertilepanorama of acoustical experience and adaptation. Praise for Hear Where We Are: Hear Where We Are is as poetic as it is informative - in the tradition of some of the best sci entific writing. Julia Whitty, Author, Deep Blue Home:An Intimate Ecology of Our Wild Ocean Hear Where We Are opens up an entirely new way of understanding not only sound perception

Title:Reaction-Transport Systems [electronic resource] : Mesoscopic Foundations, Fronts, and Spatial Instabilities
Author(s): Werner Horsthemke
Sergei Fedotov
Vicenc Mendez
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is an introduction to the dynamics of reaction-diffusion systems, with a focus on fronts and stationary spatial patterns. Emphasis is on systems that are non-standard in the sense that either the transport is not simplyclassical diffusion ( Brownian motion) or the system is not homogeneous. A important feature is the derivation of the basic phenomenological equations from the mesoscopic system properties. Topics addressed include transport withinertia, described by persistent random walks an d hyperbolic reaction-transport equations and transport by anomalous diffusion, in particular subdiffusion, where the mean square displacement grows sublinearly with time. In particularreaction-diffusion systems are studied where the medium is in turn eit her spatially inhomogeneous, compositionally heterogeneous or spatially discrete. Applications span a vast range of interdisciplinary fields and the systemsconsidered can be as different as human or animal groups migrating under external influences, popul ation ecology and evolution, complex chemical reactions, or networks of biological cells. Several chapters treat these applications indetail

Title:Environmental Radiation Effects on Mammals [electronic resource] : A Dynamical Modeling Approach
Author(s): Olga A Smirnova
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text is devoted to the theoretical studies of radiation effects on mammals. It uses the framework of developed deterministic mathematical models to investigate the effects of both acute and chronic irradiation in a wide rangeof doses and dose ra tes on vital body systems including hematopoiesis, small intestine and humoral immunity, as well as on the development of autoimmune diseases. Thus, these models can contribute to the development of the system andquantitative approaches in radiation biolo gy and ecology. This text is also of practical use. Its modeling studies of the dynamics of granulocytopoiesis and thrombocytopoiesis in humans testify to the efficiency of employment of thedeveloped models in the investigation and prediction of radiation effects on these hematopoietic lines. These models, as well as the properly identified models of other vital body systems, could provide a better understanding of theradiation risks to health. The modeling predictions will enable the implementation of mo re effective preventive and protective measures for people residing in areas with elevated radiation background and astronauts on long-term spacemissions. Lastly, the models of the radiation-induced mortality established the theoretical foundations of a n ew individual-based approach to radiation risk assessment. These models thus enable one to predict the mortality dynamics andaverage life-span shortening for individuals and populations exposed to acute and low-level chronic radiation. Because of its theo retical and practical benefits, this book is as useful for academics, scientists and researchers workingin the field of mathematical modeling of biological systems as it is for those working in the fields of radiation biology, ecology and medicine. It is equally useful for Aerospace companies and various corporations that contend withthe problems of environmental protection and radiation safety

Title:Applied Mathematical Demography [electronic resource]
Author(s): Nathan Keyfitz
Hal Caswell
Date:2005
Edition:Third Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The third edition of this classic text maintains its focus on applications of demographic models, while extending its scope to matrix models for stage-classified populations. The authors first introduce the life table to describeage-specific mortalit y, and then use it to develop theory for stable populations and the rate of population increase. This theory is then revisited in the context of matrix models, for stage-classified as well as age-classifiedpopulations. Reproductive value and the stable eq uivalent population are introduced in both contexts, and Markov chain methods are presented to describe the movement of individuals through the life cycle. Applications of mathematicaldemography to population projection and forecasting, kinship, microdemo graphy, heterogeneity, and multi-state models are considered. The new edition maintains and extends the books focus on the consequences of changes in the vitalrates. Methods are presented for calculating the sensitivity and elasticity of population growth rate, life expectancy, stable stage distribution, and reproductive value, and for applying those results in comparative studies.Stage-classified models are important in both human demography and population ecology, and this edition features examples from both human and non-human populations. In short, this third edition enlarges considerably the scope and powerof demography. It will be an essential resource for students and researchers in demography and in animal and plant population ecology. Nathan Keyf itz is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Harvard University. After holding positions atCanadas Dominion Bureau of Statistics, the University of Chicago, and the University of California at Berkeley, he became Andelot Professor of Sociology and Demography at Harvard in 1972. After retiring from Harvard, he becameDirector of the Population Program at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Vienna from 1983 to 1993. Keyfi
