Discourses
1 Discourses on a Sober and Temperate Life - Luigi Cornaro
Auteur : Luigi Cornaro
Genre : Forme et santé
This is a health book. Having thus recovered my health, I began seriously to consider the power of temperance, and say to myself, that if this virtue had efficacy enough to subdue such grievous disorders as mine, it must have still greater to preserve me in health, to help my bad constitution, and comfort my very weak stomach. I therefore applied myself diligently to discover what kinds of food suited me best. But, first, I resolved to try, whether those, which pleased my palate, agreed or disagreed with my stomach, in order to judge for myself of the truth of that proverb, which I once held true, and is universally held as such in the highest degree, insomuch that epicures, who give a loose to their appetites, lay it down as a fundamental maxim. This proverb is, that whatever pleases the palate, must agree with the stomach, and nourish the body; or whatever is palatable must be equally

2 Warm-Temperate Deciduous Forests around the Northern Hemisphere - Elgene O. Box & Kazue Fujiwara
Auteur : Elgene O. Box & Kazue Fujiwara
Genre : Géologie
Warm-temperate deciduous forests are "southern", mainly oak-dominated deciduous forests, as found over the warmer southern parts of the temperate deciduous forest regions of East Asia, Europe and eastern North America. Climatic analysis has shown that these forests extend from typical temperate climates to well into the warm-temperate zone, in areas where winters are a bit too cold for the ‘zonal’ evergreen broad-leaved forests normally expected in that climatic zone. This book is the first to recognize and describe these southern deciduous forests as an alternative to the evergreen forests of the warm-temperate zone. This warm-temperate zone will become more important under global warming, since it represents the contested transition between deciduous and evergreen forests and between tropical and temperate floristic elements. This book is dedicated to the memory of Tatsuō Kira, th

3 Seasonal Production Performance of Angora Rabbits Under Sub-Temperate Himalayan Conditions (Report) - Asian - Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences
Auteur : Asian - Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences
Genre : Secteurs et professions
INTRODUCTION Angora rabbit wool production in a particular area, under conventional rearing system, is influenced greatly by climatic conditions, nutrition and management other than germplasm. An ideal ambient temperature for Angora rabbit rearing ranges between 15-25[degrees]C and a small fluctuation between maximum and minimum temperature could disturb their growth performance (Chiericato et al., 1992) and the wool yield and quality (Rochambeau and Thebault, 1990). Around 25-28[degrees]C of ambient temperature, rabbits required more digestible energy with decreased feed consumption (Lebas, 1983). The feed consumption reported to decrease by 30% at 30[degrees]C along with body growth (Matheron and Martial, 1981). Angora rabbits are reported to have special requirements with regard to avoidance of temperature stress, which involved a lack of heat protection after shearing on one hand and

5 A Temperate Empire - Anya Zilberstein
Auteur : Anya Zilberstein
Genre : Histoire
Controversy over the role of human activity in causing climate change is pervasive in contemporary society. But, as Anya Zilberstein shows in this work, debates about the politics and science of climate are nothing new. Indeed, they began as early as the settlement of English colonists in North America, well before the age of industrialization. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, many early Americans believed that human activity and population growth were essential to moderating the harsh extremes of cold and heat in the New World. In the preindustrial British settler colonies in particular, it was believed that the right kinds of people were agents of climate warming and that this was a positive and deliberate goal of industrious activity, rather than an unintended and lamentable side effect of development. A Temperate Empire explores the ways that colonists studied and tr

7 Diversity of Arthropods Preyed Upon by the Carnivorous Plant Pinguicula Moranensis (Lentibulariaceae) in a Temperate Forest of Central Mexico (Report) - Southwestern Naturalist
Auteur : Southwestern Naturalist
Genre : Science de la vie
The immediate benefit of a carnivorous habit in plants is a significant increase in rate of photosynthesis derived from a higher concentration of nutrients in leaves (Aldenius et al., 1983; Wakefield et al., 2005; Ellison, 2006). Plants obtain nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium from captured prey; nonetheless, ca. 60% of nitrogen is sequestered by bacteria (Karlsson and Carlsson, 1984; Adamec, 2002; Farnsworth and Ellison, 2008). Incorporation of nutrients coming from prey allows plants to assign resources to roots for uptake of nitrogen (Karlsson and Carlsson, 1984; Adamec, 2002). In this way, economy of nutrients in carnivorous plants, expressed in terms ofefficiencies of use of photosynthetic nutrients, is closely linked to capture of prey. This resolves deficiencies of nutrients that generally characterize the substrate where the plant grows (Farnsworth and Ellison, 2008)

9 Variation in Basic Wood Density and Percentage Heartwood in Temperate Australian Acacia Species (Report) - Australian Forestry
Auteur : Australian Forestry
Genre : Ingénierie
Introduction Acacias that grow naturally in the cooler and often moister parts of eastern and south-eastern Australia are referred to as 'temperate' acacias in this paper. Some of these temperate acacias are used for a range of commercial wood purposes; from firewood to charcoal, paper, panels and high quality furniture. Descriptions of their wood densities and heartwood characteristics and how these change with tree age, within the tree and with growth conditions are generally limited or unavailable. Even for Acacia mearnsii (black wattle), grown extensively in commercial plantations in several countries for more than a century, basic densities are invariably reported for trees of unspecified age. These reports differ significantly, for example 630 kg [m.sup.-3] (Bootle 1983), 530-598 kg m (Hillis 1997) and 550-850 kg m (Dobson and Feely 2002).

11 Breeding Plantation Tree Crops: Temperate Species - Shri Mohan Jain & P.M. Priyadarshan
Auteur : Shri Mohan Jain & P.M. Priyadarshan
Genre : Science de la vie
Tree species, spread across a wide range of genera, are indispensible to human life. Their breeding, poised to satisfy human needs, presents significant challenges. Tree crops face a variety of agronomic and horticultural problems in propagation, yield, appearance, quality, diseases and pest control, abiotic stresses and poor shelf-life. Additionally, shrinkage of cultivable land and the pressure of growing demand have resulted in growth of tree crops under marginal conditions that call for concerted efforts for their genetic improvement. Increased attention to the environment, sustainability and diet in recent years in turn magnifies the importance of study of these crops. With the use of modern molecular and biotechnological tools, the task of improving yield in tree crops is foremost in the acumen of future global agricultural research for sustainable production.

14 Boreal and Temperate Trees in a Changing Climate - Heikki Hänninen
Auteur : Heikki Hänninen
Genre : Environnement
This book provides an overview of how boreal and temperate tree species have adapted their annual development cycle to the seasonally varying climatic conditions.  Therefore,  the frost hardy dormant phase, and the susceptible growth phase, are synchronized with the seasonality of the climate.

The volume discusses the annual cycle, including various attributes such as timing of bud burst and other phenological events, seasonality of photosynthetic capacity or the frost hardiness of the trees.
 

During the last few decades dynamic ecophysiological models have been used increasingly in studies of the annual cycle, particularly when projecting the ecological effects of climate change.  The main emphasis of this volume is on combining modelling with experimental studies, and on the importance of the biological realism of the models.

ABSTRACT.--Microbial communities, associated with terrestrial mosses (Bryopsida) and the rhizosphere of agricultural and natural occurring seed plants, have been rather extensively examined; but less is known about associations with seedless vascular plants, including ferns. The New York fern (Thelypteris noveboracensis), typically found within deciduous forests, occurs in locally extensive stands in North America extending from northeastern Canada to southeastern U.S.A. Soil samples were obtained in autumn (2007) and early summer (2008) within a plot of T. noveboracensis in the understory of deciduous trees in the forest reserve at Torrey Cliff, NY to document the rhizosphere (root-associated) density of commonly occurring heterotrophic eukaryotic microbes (protozoa), including microflagellates, naked amoebae and testate amoebae. The ranges in densities (number/g soil dry weight) are as

17 The Empirical Validation of House Energy Rating (HER) Software for Lightweight Housing in Cool Temperate Climates - Mark Andrew Dewsbury
Auteur : Mark Andrew Dewsbury
Genre : Ressources pour la production d'énergie
This book reports on the first empirical validation of “AccuRate,” Australia’s national benchmark software tool for house energy ratings. The validation was conducted by the University of Tasmania in collaboration with Forest and Wood Products Australia, the Australian Government, the CSIRO and industry partners. The study presented here describes the results of graphical and statistical analysis of variations observed between the measured and simulated data from three different test buildings in Launceston, Tasmania. It shows that, while the AccuRate software is well suited to modeling energy flows, there are discrepancies between the simulated and measured temperatures of the test buildings. Moreover, it highlights possible connections between the discrepancies in all zones and the outside air temperature, wind speed, global and diffuse solar radiation, and possibly the ground mo
