    Behaviour and Management of European UngulatesEdited by Professor Rory Putman, Environmental and Wildlife Consultant, Emeritus Professor at Manchester Metropolitan University, Visiting Professor at the Universities of Utrecht and Glasgow and Professor Marco Apollonio, Department of Natural and Environmental Sciences, University of Sassari, Italy

    This volume considers a number of aspects of the balance of cost and benefit of ungulates and their manage-ment in Europe. They are an extraordinarily important group of animals worldwide, at many levels in their remarkable biodiversity; often as keystone species with a disproportionate effect on the functioning of the

    wider ecological systems of which they form a part or as dominant species acting as ecological engineers; and as a prey base for endangered or expanding populations of large carnivores. They are also impor-tant culturally and economically, as a major source of protein in subsistence cultures and because of their wide exploitation in recreational hunting, which is still a major form of land-use in many countries.

    Management approaches are explored through a synthesis of the underlying biology and a com-parison of the management techniques adopted in different countries. Each chapter, from international experts, provides an experienced and informed review based on research experience.

    Contents: Introduction; Value systems for ungulates; Reintroductions as a management tool for European ungulates; Problems associated with invasive (intro-duced) species of ungulates; Competition between domestic and wild ungulates; The management of overabundant ungulate populations; Effects of trophy hunting on dynamics of ungulate populations; Prob-lems associated with urbanisation and the manage-ment of urban populations of ungulates; The manage-ment of ungulates in national parks; The problems of management of cross-border populations of ungulates; Novel management methods: immunocontraception; Behaviour of ungulates as it affects management; Welfare issues in the management of wild ungulates; Management of ungulates in the 21st century: how far have we come?

    Readership: this will be essential reading for practising wildlife managers and wildlife professionals, those involved in research to improve methods of wildlife management, and policy-makers in local, regional and national administrations.

    Darwin in Scotland Edinburgh, Evolution and Enlightenment

    J.F. Derry

    with exclusive contributions from Richard Dawkins, Noam Chomsky, Martin Rees, Aubrey Manning, Richard Holloway, Ken Ham and many others

    This is the first book on Darwin and Darwinism that wholly concentrates on his time spent in Scotland and the key contribu-tions to his future insights made by the Scottish Enlightenment

    and the University of Edinburgh. through extensive interviews with leading academics,

    Derry is able to point to the crucial influence that Enlightenment Edinburgh was to have on Darwins developing mind. Edinburgh did indeed help to furnish the scientist with a bedrock on which to place later discoveries made in more exotic surrounds. Scottish Field

    Design of Liquid RetainingConcrete Structures 3rd editionDr. John P. Forth, Senior Lecturer, School of CivilEngineering, University of Leeds, UK and Andrew J.Martin, Senior Engineer, COWI A/S, Denmark

    This new edition of a successfulengineering text provides aninterpretation of the moretheoretical guidance given in thenew suite of Eurocodes for thesubject of retaining structures. Thebook qualifies the extensive set ofguides in terms of the design ofthese structures and provides aclear path through theprocess. It still discusses structural

    elements individually so that expertise can be applied toany situation likely to be encountered. Themodifications, such as changes to surface zones, thecritical steel ratio, the maximum crack spacing (flexuraland imposed strain) and edge restraint, that have beenintroduced into the Eurocodes are highlighted anddiscussed in detail.

    The new suite of Eurocodes is claimed to be the mosttechnically advanced codes in the world; the codeswere developed with the intention of making them lessrestrictive than existing codes. The third edition reflectsthis philosophy by providing more theoreticalbackground information and discussion, with specificreference to current and previous research, helping thereader to achieve a greater understanding and a widerapplication of the basic design guidance as the codesintended. As such the book remains a vital tool forpractising civil and structural engineers.

    Contents: Introduction; Basis of design and materials;Design of reinforced concrete; Design of prestressedconcrete; Distribution reinforcement and joints: design forthermal stresses and shrinkage in restrained panels;Design calculations; Testing and rectification; Vapourexclusion; References. Index

    Readership: practising civil and structural engineers andpostgraduate students will all find this book of particularvalue.

    Hydrocarbon Process Safety2nd edition

    Clifford Jones, Reader, School of Engineering, Universityof Aberdeen, UK

    An expanded and updated editionof this established text with morenumerical problems and a widerscope. Readers will find muchabout the industry and importantoperations such as refining, heatexchange, cracking,polymerisation and hydrogenation.National and internationalstandards are considered inrelation to site layout. The

    coverage of the fire and explosion behaviour ofhydrocarbons, in particular flash points, has beenextended. The topic of leaked gas detection has beenintroduced, and there is considerable extension of thecoverage of static electricity hazards.

    There is more on liquefied natural gas (LNG),regasification, natural gas condensates, and re-refiningof crude oil products that have previously been used aslubricants or as hydraulic fluids . Tight gas and coal bedmethane feature, as does the controversial matter ofhydraulic fracture to obtain them. Other additionsinclude hydrocracking, hydrodesulphurisation andhydrodenitrogenation. The COMAH (Control of MajorAccident Hazards) regulations are covered and signconventions for hazards are explained with illustrations.
