Introduction to Wildlife Conservation in Farming (Paperback): Stephen Burchett, Sarah Burchett Introduction to Wildlife Conservation in Farming (Paperback)
Stephen Burchett, Sarah Burchett
R1,159 R1,048 Discovery Miles 10 480 Save R111 (10%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book provides an invaluable, comprehensive and practical introduction to conservation issues associated with current farming practice. Representing both industry and conservation as an integrated and holistic system, it explores conservation issues within every farming discipline; from arable and horticulture to grasslands, woodlands, aquatic and coastal farming and will include an assessment of the impact of global warming. The book includes relevant case studies and international, real-world examples, focusing on applied management and not just ecological facts, theories and principles.

The carefully structured book begins by introducing the overall subject including some statistics on current farming activities, giving a brief outlook for the future of farming systems in relation to conservation. Each subsequent chapter will have its own introduction setting the commercial context and conservation value of an example farm, and will progress with a series of case studies that will include the following elements: site assessment; species list; soils management options; and a habitat management plan. A summary section will draw together the common themes of the chapter and develop a lead-in to subsequent chapters.

It will provide students with an informed appreciation of current practice whilst raising questions about the development of conservation in farming in the future.

Plant Pathology (Paperback): Stephen Burchett, Sarah Burchett Plant Pathology (Paperback)
Stephen Burchett, Sarah Burchett
R1,085 Discovery Miles 10 850 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Plant Pathology explores the topic of plant pathology and aligns classic studies and knowledge in the topic with the current state of research, in an accessible format. The text is supported by summary tables of key information and, where appropriate, schematic diagrams to reinforce difficult concepts such as the process of disease infection, cell-to-cell recognition, and plant breeding mechanisms used to develop resistant cultivars. The compendium of diseases focuses on important and major economic disease organisms from a number of crop and ornamental plants, including a dedicated section on fruit crops. The compendium is supported by original photographs, photomicrographs and electron micrographs of key pathogens and the development of structures such as the haustoria and the hypha, and show processes of cellular degradation. The section on applied disease management contains short case studies highlighting key disease organisms affecting the crops of a range of growers, illustrating the environment, disease symptoms and control strategies these growers are currently using to mitigate loss of production.
