Maintaining forest biodiversity by combining protection, management and restoration of forest and woodland landscapes is a central component of sustainable development. Evidence that there are threshold levels for how much habitat loss may be tolerated for viable populations of specialised species to be maintained. Policy-makers, businesses and managers pose questions about how to balance use of renewable forest resources and conserve biodiversity. Examples are presented on how biodiversity assessments can be made. Proposes how the critical gaps in our knowledge identified throughout the book could be filled through macroecological research and international co-operation.
Peripheral Nerve Disorders: Pathology and Genetics is a definitive, clinically-oriented guide to the pathology of peripheral nerve disorders.
These commonly seen neurological challenges have many causes and accurate diagnosis is often necessary via pathological analysis. New techniques exploiting molecular biological knowledge have opened up new vistas to understanding the pathogenesis of these disorders, and hence their effective management.
This new title takes a disease-oriented approach to understanding the pathology of these conditions. It combines classical and contemporary techniques to enable practitioners in neurology and neuropathology to better understanding of the disease processes underlying patients presentations and to formulate appropriate management plans.
Peripheral Nerve Disorders: Pathology and Genetics is a valuable resource for neurologists, neuropathologists, pathologists, neurobiologists and geneticists.
