Environmental Sustainability and Global Change: Forests, Agriculture, and soils vis à vis Human Disturbance offers an integrated approach to socio-environmental dynamics of the ecological-economic nexus characteristic of Mediterranean landscapes. Evidencing the role of policies targeting sustainable development goals in ‘kaleidoscopic’ rural landscapes of Southern Europe, the case studies from Italy, Spain and Greece confirm the need of place-specific approaches to socio-ecological complexity and the partial effectiveness of generalized, top-down measures. Based on 16 chapters authored by leading scholars in Southern Europe – with eminent contributions from Eastern Europe – the book identifies the intrinsic peculiarity of the environmental-economic nexus characteristic of the Northern Mediterranean basin and the most important differences with other socioeconomic contexts in Europe. Stimulating a spatial planning for rural areas, the book proposes a dynamic image of Mediterranean rural landscapes, providing novel interpretations, conceptual definitions, and operational tools designed to reduce ecological fragility and economic vulnerability.

Pathology of Wildlife and Zoo Animals, Second Edition is the much-anticipated update to the leading resource on the study of diseases in non-domestic species. The book offers comprehensive coverage of the pathology of wildlife and zoo species, including a wide scope of animals, disease types and geographic regions. Chapters include information on performing necropsies, proper techniques to meet the specialized needs of forensic cases, laboratory diagnostics, and an introduction to basic principles of comparative clinical pathology. The taxon-based chapters provide information about diseases in related groups of animals and include descriptions of gross and histologic lesions, pathogenesis and diagnostics.For each group of animals, notable, unique, gross and microscopic anatomical features are provided to further assist the reader in deciding whether differences from the domestic animal paradigm are "normal." Additional online content, which includes text, images and whole scanned glass slides of selected conditions expand the published material thus resulting in a comprehensive approach to the topic.
