Andrews Название: Timber: Loggers Challenge the Great Northwest Forests ISBN: 0887400361 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780887400360 Издательство: Schiffer Рейтинг: Цена: 22670 T Наличие на складе: Нет в наличии. Описание: Has anyone today any conception of the grandeur, the extent, the million board feet a day production...the entire meaning of the forests of the Pacific Northwest-the "Big Woods"? The photographs alone in this absorbing book will instantly transport the reader into this former world. Here was the greatest stand of Douglas fir timber in existence and here was labor for the Poles, Finns, Swedes and Norskies lured out of the Midwest to convert the mammoth trees into the lumber that helped build the West Coast cities. Ralph Andrews presents a fascinating subject-the hope, courage and tragedy in the lives of the men and women who opened up the dense native forests or as the loggers said "brought daylight into the swamp," and converted the trees into the lumber which built the West Coast cities. Here are many nostalgic scenes showing high climbers, fallers balanced on high springboards, yokes of oxen and up to eight spans of horses dragging logs on skidroad, yokes of oxen and up to eight spans of horses dragging logs on skidroads to flumes, rivers and salt water, early donkey engines, railroads on steep grades, logging camps as well as devastating fires. Andrews style of writing is graphic and spirited with strong emphasis on human interest.

Описание: Having surged past the six billion mark, the human population of the twenty-first century is making overwhelming demands on the earth and its forests.
Although economic and political considerations once dominated the management of forests and land, in today's crowded world environmental concerns are rapidly emerging as
dominant. This book, drawn from experience with the World Commission on Forests and Sustainable Development, presents a concise, accessible view of the current status of forests
globally, of demands on them, and of their importance in maintaining a fully functional human habitat.
The book also presents a major challenge in planning for land use in a
full world where defence of the public interest becomes more and more difficult and demanding. Opening with an examination of forests and the effects of human activities on them, the
book then considers the relationship of forests to global warming, agriculture, biotic impoverishment, water resources, and climate. Later chapters discuss the global wood supply,
plantation forestry, and forests as a source of energy.
The final chapters call for local and global planners to weigh the spiraling competitive demands for forest resources and
to redefine what is in the public interest in the context of forests.

Описание: This important book relates the history of natural and human-induced changes that have occurred in the past one thousand years in New England and
explores the modern ecology of this largely forested landscape. Written by leading biological, physical, and social scientists, the book uniquely demonstrates that an understanding of
landscape history is essential for the study of ecology and environmental management. After a discussion of the elements that initially shaped the land, the authors describe how the
New England landscape changed drastically with the arrival of European settlers nearly four hundred years ago, as they cleared the land of forest and extensively farmed it.
Observed patterns of forest regrowth following a shift in agriculture to the Midwest form the basis for explanations of changes in native wildlife populations and, more fundamentally,
ecosystem structure and function.

"Forests, Rocks, Torrents" brings together an array of Norway and Switzerland's most talented 19th-century artists, who shared an interest in capturing their native dramatic alpine landscapes. This richly illustrated book also examines the differences that climate, character, and political regimes have imposed on artistic practices.
Distinct social and political situations in Norway and Switzerland yielded fundamental differences in the two countries' painting traditions. As Norway endured a long struggle for freedom, Switzerland remained proudly independent. While Norway was poor, isolated, and dependent for survival on its natural resources, the Swiss enjoyed prosperity, a cosmopolitan society, and prestige as an early center of industry. The authors examine how this was manifested in the landscape paintings of such prominent artists as Johan Christian Dahl, Thomas Fearnley, Peder Balke, and Alexandra Calame. The book also supplies a helpful chronology and brief artist biographies.
