The Craft and Science of Coffee follows the coffee plant from its origins in East Africa to its current role as a global product that influences millions of lives though sustainable development, economics, and consumer desire.
Why did Einstein tirelessly study unified field theory for more than 30 years? In this book, the author argues that Einstein believed he could find a unified theory of all of nature's forces by repeating the methods he thought he had used when he formulated general relativity.
The chemistry aspects of water quality are provided in a thorough yet easily understood manner.Practical aspects of water quality are emphasized.The interactions among geology, climate, water quality and biological effects are emphasized.
Strikes a balance between theoretical (physics, concepts, techniques) and practical (application examples, case studies) aspects of remote sensing, making it an excellent introductory textbook for upper-level undergraduate students.
Gives a complete account of all non-forest vegetation types such as dunes and saltmarshes, mires, ponds and rivers, and alpine vegetation, as well as managed grasslands, heaths, arable and ruderal communities, and urban vegetation, analysing their structure, community ecology, biogeochemistry and dynamics.
