Ecology and Conservation of North American Sea Ducks

Jean-Pierre L. Savard, Dirk V. Derksen, Dan Esler, John M. Eadie
February 19, 2018

The past decade has seen a huge increase in the interest and attention directed toward sea ducks, the Mergini tribe. This has been inspired, in large part, by the conservation concerns associated with numerical declines in several sea duck species and populations, as well as a growing appreciation...

Invasive Stink Bugs and Related Species (Pentatomoidea): Biology, Higher Systematics, Semiochemistry, and Management

J.E. McPherson
February 15, 2018

The Superfamily Pentatomoidea (stink bugs and their relatives) is comprised of 18 families with over 8,000 species, the largest of which is the family Pentatomidae (about 5,000 species). These species primarily are phytophagous, and many cause tremendous economic damage to crops worldwide. Within...

Chemical Ecology of Insects: Applications and Associations with Plants and Microbes

Jun Tabata
January 24, 2018

Insects have evolved very unique and interesting tactics using chemical signals to survive. Chemical ecology illustrates the working of the biological network by means of chemical analyses. Recent advances in analytical technology have opened the way to a better understanding of the more...

Carrion Ecology, Evolution, and Their Applications

M. Eric Benbow, Jeffery K. Tomberlin, Aaron M. Tarone
January 24, 2018

Shortlisted for the 2018 TWS Wildlife Publication Awards in the edited book category   Decomposition and recycling of vertebrate remains have been understudied, hampered largely due to these processes being aesthetically challenging (e.g., smell and sight). Technological innovations have...

Biology and Ecology of Pike

Christian Skov, P. Anders Nilsson
January 08, 2018

This book sets out to bridge the order scales among pike researchers, populations, communities, management, and fisheries. It emphasizes the progress of pike research during the last two decades, during which the order-bridging approach emerged. This framework underpins the text and the message, to...

Phenological Synchrony and Bird Migration: Changing Climate and Seasonal Resources in North America

Eric M. Wood, Jherime L. Kellermann
December 18, 2017

Bird migration is a well-researched phenological event. However, few studies in North America have investigated the effects of climate change and extreme weather on the relationships of migratory avian species and their seasonal resources. This is a critical gap in knowledge that limits our ability...

Safety Features of Operating Light Water Reactors of Western Design

M. Gavrilas
November 29, 2017

This text arose from a study originally undertaken for the Department of Energy to characterize the principal safety features of light water reactors of western design. This text should be of use to professional engineers interested in safety assessment of operating light water reactors, students...
