  • A platform-independent fuzzy logic modeling framework for environmental decision support
    Fuzzy logic modeling is a useful method for evaluating landscapes for conservation and resource planning and hasbeen successfully used in different types of ecological and environmental studies. A variety of software packageshave been produced to facilitate fuzzy logic modeling, but each is either associated with a speciļ¬c computer programor does not comprise a complete modeling system. The ...
  • Climate change effects on southern California deserts
    Climate change has already affected southern California where regional increases in temperature and vegetation shifts have been observed. While all the CMIP5 temperature projections agree on a substantial level of warming throughout the year, there is fair bit of divergence in the magnitude and seasonality of projected changes in rainfall. While desert plants and animals are generally adapted to extreme ...
  • Rewilding
    This book chapter was written by CBI's Board Chairman, David Johns. Rewilding is a type of large-scale biological and ecological restoration that emphasizes recovery of wide-ranging native species, top carnivores, and other keystone animals in their natural patterns of abundance to regain functional and resilient ecosystems (Noss,1992;Noss and Cooperrider, 1994). The term was coined by Dave Foreman ...
  • Sustainability in Higher Education for the Global South: A Conversation across Geographies and Disciplines
    A workshop on ‘Sustainability in Higher Education from the vantage of the Global South’ was organized by the Azim Premji University between 12 and 14 January 2015 in Bengaluru, India. Its goal was to explore how sustainability can be integrated into undergraduate, postgraduate and professional courses. The workshop was divided into four sessions with interlinked themes – the irst, with ...
  • Global change and terrestrial plant community dynamics
    Anthropogenic drivers of global change include rising atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses and resulting changes in the climate, as well as nitrogen deposition, biotic invasions, altered disturbance regimes, and land-use change. Predicting the effects of global change on terrestrial plant communities is crucial because of the ecosystem services vegetation provides, from climate regulation to forest products ...
