Download and read online A Guide to and Checklist for the Decapoda of Namibia South Africa and Mozambique Volume 3 in PDF and EPUB Decapods are a culmination of nearly 600 million years of Crustacean evolution, during which time they have radiated into a variety of superfamilies, families, genera and species which occupy a variety of niches from fresh mountain streams to the abysses of the oceans. This book will fill a gap in the current literature on southern African decapods. Since Barnard published his Descriptive Catalogue of South African Decapod Crustacea in 1950, there have been numerous additions and name changes. This publication updates the taxonomy, and includes ecological and fisheries information. In addition, Kensley’s (1981) distributional checklist for the region has been updated and includes large numbers of new species and records for the region, bringing the total number of decapod to over 1000 species. Although not exhaustive, 262 species are featured, some of which are beautiful, some have commercial or artisinal value, both for consumption and the aquarium, and some have important ecological functions, while others are rare or interesting. For each species there is a photograph, synonymies, common names, a description, ecological information and name derivation (etymology). All the decapod families found in South Africa are described, some new, along with chapters on decapod research history in southern Africa, commercial and artisinal food value of decapods, biodiversity and future research direction. The book is arranged systematically, as taxonomy is based on phylogeny, starting with the earliest forms and progressing to the most derived and advanced forms, and will serve to stimulate interest and future research into southern Africa’s rich decapod biodiversity, especially at a time when biodiversity itself is threatened by global warming, coral bleaching and habitat loss. It will appeal to people interested in Decapoda, including academics, scholars, students, fishermen, aquarists, aquaculturists, recreational snorkel and SCUBA divers, as well as those interested in conservation, biodiversity, management and governance.

Download and read online Marine Conservation in Fiji in PDF and EPUB In 2015 and 2016, the author participated in a community-based marine conservation project in Fiji sponsored by Global Vision International (GVI). He collected initial monitoring data on marine ecosystem species around the island of Caqalai. This data was used to assess existing conditions of the ecosystem and to help create conservation policies and educational strategies for the islanders of Caqalai. In addition, he spent a significant amount of time working with an organization on the island of Viti Levu that specializes in shark conservation. This book consists of three sections: (1) research methods for observing marine species, (2) marine species of Fiji, and (3) community-based marine conservation strategies. Each section includes a review of the literature on the subject and a summary of his experiences while in Fiji. The information presented includes explanations as to why each animal, from the smallest coral polyp to the largest bull shark, play an important role in maintaining the ecological balance of reef ecosystem. This book is intended to be used as a field guide for those interested in marine conservation in the South Pacific.

Und fortan zieht es ihn immer tiefer in die verborgene Welt der Ozeane hinab: Er besucht eine Forschungsstation 20 Meter unter der Meeresoberfläche, trifft renommierten Meeresbiologen bei ihrer Arbeit, schwimmt mit Walen und geht im U-Boot auf Tauchstation. Dabei entdeckt er einen unfassbar reichen Lebensraum, mit telepathischen Korallen, leuchtenden Fischen und rätselhaften Riesenkraken. Bis er schließlich den tiefsten Punkt der Erde erreicht – die absolute Grenze für Mensch und Technik. Eine grandiose Entdeckungsreise, die zugleich unseren Wurzeln nachspürt.

Download and read online Spuren in PDF and EPUB Robyn Davidson verwirklicht mit siebenundzwanzig Jahren einen scheinbar verrückten Traum: die australische Wüste zu durchqueren, begleitet von vier wilden Kamelen und einem Hund. Neun Monate wird es dauern, bis sie schließlich den Indischen Ozean erreicht. Neun Monate in der Wildnis, umgeben von unerträglicher Hitze, giftigen Tieren und einer Landschaft, der die Menschen gleichgültig sind. Doch im Verlauf der Reise gelingt es Robyn, ihr altes Leben mehr und mehr hinter sich zu lassen. Jenseits der Zivilisation und auf sich allein gestellt erkennt sie, was sie wirklich zum Glücklichsein braucht – bis die Begegnung mit dem Fotografen Rick sie aus der frisch gewonnenen Balance zu bringen droht ... «Eines der schönsten Bücher über das Entdecken und das Reisen.» (Doris Lessing) «Leuchtend und lebendig... Davidson ist eine wahre Abenteurerin und eine geborene Schriftstellerin.» (New Yorker) «Kein Buch für Pauschal-Touristen, auch keins für Latzhosen-Feministinnen. Aber unbedingt eines für Menschen, die unruhig geblieben sind.» (Die Zeit) «Eine packende Geschichte über Herausforderung und Mut, ein farbenprächtiges Bild Australiens, gezeichnet von einer scharfsinnigen und empfindsamen Beobachterin – und die Geschichte einer inneren Reise.» (Sydney Morning Herald)
