Book Excerpt :

“David Anthony Durham has serious chops. I can’t wait to read whatever he writes next." —George R. R. Martin Welcome to Acacia . . . Born into generations of prosperity, the four royal children of the Akaran dynasty know little of the world outside their opulent island paradise. But when an assassin strikes at the heart of their power, their lives are changed forever. Forced to flee to distant corners and separated against their will, the children must navigate a web of hidden allegiances, ancient magic, foreign invaders, and illicit trade that will challenge their very notion of who they are. As they come to understand their true purpose in life, the fate of the world lies in their hands.

Book Short Summary:

Acacias are of considerable social and industrial importance for tropical reforestation and it is expected that about 2 million hectares will be established in Southeast Asia by the year 2000. The acacia species currently of most interest for plantation forestry in the tropics are indigenous to northern Australia, Papua New Guinea and Irian Jaya. Recent reports from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and northern Australia suggest that the future productivity of acacia plantations may be affected by fungal pathogens including leaf spots, shoot blights, stem cankers, heart rot, root rots and gall rusts. During 1995-96 a series of disease surveys was undertaken by forest pathologists in native stands, trials, and operational and social forestry plantings of tropical acacias in Australia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand to assess the potential of fungal pathogens as limiting factors to tree growth and productivity and to assess the relative importance of individual fungal pathogens. Tree species included in the surveys were Acacia mangium and A. auriculiformis, on the basis of their current importance as plantation species. A. crassicarpa and A. aulacocarpa were also surveyed as, although they have been planted on a limited scale so far, they are included in provenance and species trials in many locations throughout the region. Scientists who had participated in the project met with research managers of five major Indonesian plantation pulp and paper companies and government business enterprises from 28 April – 3 May 1996 at the base camp of PT Musi Hutan Persada Subanjeriji in southern Sumatra, to present the results of their surveys. This publication is a status report on the diseases of acacias in the several countries based on information presented at the workshop. It provides a benchmark of the current knowledge of the pathology of the four most important Acacia species currently being grown in plantations in tropical areas of Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent and northern Australia.

Book Short Summary:

Australia's unique and diverse woody flora has become socially, economically and environmentally important in many other countries. The seed of some Acacia species showing promise in planting programs in semi-arid areas has been a part of the traditional diet of Australia's Aboriginal people. The dry seed may be ground to flour, mixed with water and eaten as a paste or baked to form a cake. Forest tree breeding has focussed on wood production, selecting taller, faster-growing varieties. The same principles of selection and improvement can be applied to improve seed yields and nutritional properties of shrubs. The selection criteria would include seed characters such as taste, seed coat thickness and nutritive value to maximize their food value. The book looks at the possibility of building upon the traditional knowledge of Aboriginal Australians, using modern scientific methods, for the benefit of people in the world's dry areas. Australian Dry-zone Acacias for Human Food documents the proceedings of a workshop held at Glen Helen, Northern Territory, Australia. The purpose of the meeting was to examine the idea of developing the food value of the seed of Australia's dry-zone acacias. This book covers a summary of the workshop conlcusions, the invited papers, and recommendations of the working groups.

“David Anthony Durham has serious chops. I can’t wait to read whatever he writes next." —George R. R. Martin David Anthony Durham’s gripping Acacia Trilogy continues with an epic novel where loyalties are tested, new worlds are discovered, and battle lines are being drawn. A few years have passed since Queen Corinn has usurped control of the Known World—and she now rules with an iron fist. With plans to expand her empire, she sends her brother, Dariel, on an exploratory mission across the sea to The Other Lands. There, he discovers an alliance of tribes that have no interest in being ruled by Queen Corinn and the Akarans. In fact, Dariel’s arrival ignites a firestorm that once more exposes The Known World to a massive invasion, one unlike anything they have yet faced . . .

Book Short Summary:

2020. Grâce à de nouvelles technologies de réception radio, un étrange signal est capté en provenance de l'espace durant plusieurs mois. Ce signal semble avoir pour origine la position hypothétique de la planète X, la neuvième planète de notre système solaire encore jamais observée officiellement. Sur fond de montée du fondamentalisme religieux et de multiplication des attentats terroristes partout dans le monde, le professeur en astrophysique Anthony Hallbrown aidé de la spécialiste en cryptographie Yoko Kobayashi va tout faire pour décrypter le signal et confirmer l’existence de la neuvième planète. Ils devront affronter la montée en puissance de la secte des Partisans menée de main de fer par son leader charismatique Asarus Hicks. Initialement fondée en 1961, ce groupe sectaire se revendique comme étant les légitimes serviteurs des voyageurs de l'espace qui, selon la théorie des anciens astronautes, seraient venus créer génétiquement la race humaine des centaines de milliers d'années avant notre ère. La découverte de ce signal et ce que les uns et les autres vont en faire, va provoquer des changements théologiques, scientifiques et politiques majeurs dans le monde. Mais le sens du message que les professeurs Hallbrown et Kobayashi s'apprêtent à découvrir changera à jamais le destin de l’espèce humaine.

Book Short Summary:

This book identifies 47 Acacia species which have potential for cultivation in the southern semi-arid region of Australia as a source of seed for human consumption. Eighteen species are regarded as having the greatest potential. Botanical profiles are provided for these species, together with information on the natural distribution, ecology, phenology, growth characteristics and seed attributes. Two species, Acacia victoriae and Acacia murrayana, appear particularly promising as the seeds of both these have good nutritional characteristics and were commonly used as food by Aborigines. Acacia victoriae is currently the most important wattle used in the Australian bushfood industry. This book is a useful reference for the bush food industry.

Book Short Summary:

Deux jeunes Mexicaines de province, toutes les deux nommées Susana, emménagent dans le même appartement du 22 de la rue Acacia à Mexico, à 50 années de distance. La Susana du présent démarre une carrière de graphiste dans une agence de communication où elle subit les frasques d’une boss tyrannique et se sent isolée. La Susana des années 1970 est dactylo dans un bureau mais rêve de devenir écrivaine et écrit des manuscrits qui sont systématiquement refusés par les éditeurs. La vie de la Susana des années 2020 est bouleversée quand elle trouve une lettre qui lui est adressée, dissimulée dans un trou derrière le chauffe eau de l’appartement. Dans cette lettre, l’ancienne Susana raconte toute sa vie... "Acacia 22" est le portrait croisé de deux femmes qui connaissent des vies similaires à un demi-siècle de distance. L’expérience de la plus âgée des deux, dont les ambitions seront toujours contrecarrées par la société de son époque, bénéficiera à la plus jeune. "Acacia 22" est l’œuvre d’un jeune talent de la scène mexicaine, Edgar Camacho, qui montre une impressionnante maîtrise de la narration à travers ce récit à cheval sur deux époques, couplée à une inventivité débridée dans le découpage et la mise en scène qui font de cette bande dessinée une belle découverte.

Book Short Summary:

This manual gathers information on the ecology and silviculture of Acacia mangium Willd. with a focus on Indonesia. It also includes growth and yield data from published sources and collected from sites under community–company partnerships in South Kalimantan and Riau provinces. This manual is one of five manuals that guide smallholder tree planting of five selected tree species in Indonesia. The other four species are: Aleurites moluccana (L.) Willd.; Anthocephalus cadamba Miq.; Paraserianthes falcataria (L.) Nielsen; and Swietenia macrophylla King. Smallholders in Indonesia have planted trees on private or community land for a long time. Various actors have encouraged this activity to improve local livelihoods, environmental sustainability and industrial wood supply. These efforts have been generally successful, but they are often undertaken without technical assistance. Since farmers often lack technical capacity and management know-how, the quality and quantity of products may not be optimal. Productivity of smallholder plantations can be improved by enhancing smallholders’ management knowledge and skills, including species selection based on site matching, silvicultural management to maximise product quality, and pest and disease management.

Book Short Summary:

With the first two books in the Acacia Trilogy, Acacia and The Other Lands, David Anthony Durham has created a vast and engrossing canvas of a world in turmoil, where the surviving children of a royal dynasty are on a quest to realize their fates—and perhaps right ancient wrongs once and for all. As The Sacred Band begins, one of them, Queen Corinn, bestrides the world as a result of her mastery of spells found in the ancient Book of Elenet. Her younger brother, Dariel, has been sent on a perilous mis­sion to the Other Lands, while her sister, Mena, travels to the far north to confront an invasion of the feared race of the Auldek. Their separate trajectories will converge in a series of world-shaping, earth-shattering battles, all ren­dered with vividly imagined detail and in heroic scale. David Anthony Durham concludes his tale of kingdoms in collision in an exciting fashion. His fictional world is at once realistic and fantastic, informed with an eloquent and dis­tinctively Shakespearean sensibility.

Book Short Summary:

Desde hace 300 años los masones se llaman a sí mismos hijos de la Acacia porque este árbol, al tener la hoja perenne, simboliza la inmortalidad. Este libro explica la historia de la masonería a través de sus más altos dirigentes, las razones de que fuera prohibida en numerosos Estados e, incluso, condenada por diversas confesiones religiosas: se la acusaba de conspirar contra el trono y el altar con la finalidad de imponer una República Universal. De hecho, para muchos, la masonería fue y es una sociedad secreta al servicio de organizaciones republicanas, izquierdistas y anticlericales. No obstante, la presencia de nobles en las logias, con su perfil conservador, monárquico y católico, plantea una inquietante paradoja. Durante los siglos XVIII y XIX, fueron masones numerosos monarcas de Europa y buena parte de la nobleza titulada que ocupaba los más altos cargos políticos. Igualmente, eran masones cientos de sacerdotes católicos, muchos de ellos cardenales y obispos. Así las cosas ¿por qué motivo tales monarcas, como jefes de Estado de sus respectivos territorios, participarían en una revolución que buscaba destronarles? Y sin embargo, había algo en el secreto masónico, que justificaba las prevenciones de los Estados y de la propia Iglesia católica contra la masonería.Javier Alvarado Planas es Catedrático de Historia de las Instituciones en la Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (Madrid), académico correspondiente de la Real Academia de la Historia y también de la Real Academia de Jurisprudencia y Legislación. Ha recibido diversos reconocimientos, como el Premio Nacional de Historia (Ministerio de Cultura), por su participación en la obra colectiva El Rey. Historia de la monarquía, la Cruz de Honor de San Raimundo de Peñafort (Ministerio de Justicia), o la Encomienda de la Orden de Isabel la Católica (Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores). Sobre historia de la masonería ha publicado: — Masones en la nobleza de España; una Hermandad de iluminados (2016). — Templarios y masones: las claves de un enigma (2019). — Apercepciones sobre la iniciación masónica (2019).

Book Short Summary:

Savannah habitats comprise an ecologically important, but ultimately fragile, ecosystem. They constitute one of the largest biomes on Earth, covering almost 20% of the land surface, and can be simply described as tropical and subtropical grasslands with scattered bushes and trees. Most savannahs occur in Africa, although smaller areas can be found in South America, India, and Australia. They form a rich mosaic of diverse ecosystems, and this book offers a concise but comprehensive introduction to their ecology, biodiversity, and conservation. The Biology of African Savannahs describes the major plants (grasses, and trees such as Acacia) and animals (mainly large mammals) that live in this habitat, and examines the biological and ecological factors that influence their population size, interactions (such as predation), and community composition. Conservation issues such as climate change, hunting, and conflict between wildlife and domestic animals are also discussed. This new edition has been updated throughout with the latest research in the field, and contains new technique boxes which introduce readers to some of the analytical methods used to study African savannahs. This accessible text is suitable for both senior undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in savannah and tropical ecology as part of a wider ecology and/or conservation biology degree programme. It will also be of relevance and use to the many professional ecologists and conservation practitioners requiring a concise but authoritative overview of the topic.

Book Short Summary:

Travail d'étude de l’année 2021 dans le domaine Biologie - Botanique, , langue: Français, résumé: La sécheresse et la salinité agissent simultanément dans la tolérance et l’acclimatations sous condition saline. Par conséquent, les plantes soumises à ces types de stress devraient avoir développé des adaptations structurelles spécifiques dès le stade de germination en passant par la croissance de la racine, les feuilles et la tige. La solution à ces problèmes environnementaux est de rechercher des espèces relativement économes en eau et résistantes à des épisodes récurrents de divers stress abiotiques tel que le stress salin. L’effet de la sécheresse s’est manifesté au niveau de la distribution des espèces d’acacia le long du territoire algérien, caractérisé beaucoup plus par la pluviométrie. En effet, La répartition géographique du genre Acacia Mill. (Fabales Mimosaceae) en Algérie a été déterminée après la prospection, la localisation et la description des populations de différentes espèces sur l’ensemble du territoire algérien. Vingt-quatre régions ont été prospectées en fonction de l'abondance relative des espèces. L'objectif de l’étude de l’effet de la salinité sur la germination contribue aussi à déterminer le seuil de tolérance des semences et de leur régénération dans un milieu salin. Seulement trois parmi les dix espèces répertoriées seront étudiées. Cette sélection est basée surtout sur la distribution géographique et la densité de chaque espèce choisie. A. saligna représente le Nord, A. tortilis pour le Sud, et A. karroo qui est une espèce qui est présente dans le Nord et dans le Sud en même temps. Le classement des espèces étudiées dans un ordre de tolérance décroissant, sur la base de leur capacité germinative, est alors le suivant : A. karroo > A. tortilis > A. saligna. La croissance, l'homéostasie ionique, l'osmoprotection, l’indice de tolérance à la salinité, ainsi que les ajustements anatomiques d'A. karroo et d’A. saligna cultivés à diverses concentrations de NaCl pendant 21 jours ont été évalués. Nos résultats montrent que l'adaptabilité d’une espèce à la salinité est étroitement liée à la sélectivité en ions, à l'accumulation d'osmoprotecteurs, aux ajustements anatomiques et à la production de la biomasse sèche.

Book Short Summary:

This book describes the outstanding features of the ecology and bio geography of the Indian region, comprising former British India, Nepal, Bhutan, Ceylon and Burma. It summarizes the results of nearly four decades' studies and field explorations and discussions with students on the distribution of plants and animals, practically throughout this vast area and on the underlying factors. A number of specialists in geology, meteorology, botany, zoology, ecology and anthropology have also actively collaborated with me and have contributed valuable chapters in their respective fields. India has an exceptionally rich and highly diversified flora and fauna, exhibiting complex composition, character and affinities. Although the fauna of the Indian region as a whole is less completely known than its flora, we are nevertheless fairly well acquainted with at least the salient features of its faunal characters to enable us to present a meaningful discussion on some of the outstanding peculiarities of the biogeography of India. A general synthesis of the available, though much scattered, information should prove useful to future students of biogeography throughout the world.

Book Short Summary:

Industrial timber plantations are controversial in many parts of the world. Indonesia provides an interesting case study, with its history of conflicts over land use and current ambitions for plantation expansion. This study investigated perceived impacts of plantations on nearby rural populations. A survey was conducted of 606 respondents across three islands (Java, Borneo and Sumatra), three tree species (acacia, teak and pine) and three end uses (pulpwood, timber production and resin production). In addition, a Q-method analysis was conducted at a site with an established pulpwood plantation in order to identify significantly diverse perceptions of the plantation among villagers. The methods were combined to arrive at a representative view of these perceptions and expectations. Results illustrate a diversity of viewpoints among villagers, with perceptions varying from general dissatisfaction to enthusiasm. Perceptions of pine and teak plantations tend to differ from acacia pulpwood plantations. For pine and teak, respondents reported a higher number and greater variety of benefits and services, higher number of perceived positive impacts in general, a better environmental record, and more opportunities to use plantation land and products for rural livelihoods. These results contrast with the heavy focus around acacia plantations on economic development and infrastructure. Hence, acacia plantations enjoy some level of recognition for opening up remote areas and providing infrastructure and services that are traditionally the responsibility of the state. Data were disaggregated by gender to enable further analysis, and offer a general indication that plantation development has not affected women more negatively than men. Our analysis leads to several clear directions for the improvement of plantation management. The role of the state must be clarified and potentially reinforced, except if the burden of development, including that of infrastructure, is to remain the responsibility of companies. Lessons can be drawn from the teak and pine cases in Java as to the performance of institutions that act as intermediaries between companies and people. Contributions by communities should be facilitated early in the planning stages, and this should apply in particular to land claims, to the organization of the labor force (including the privileged form of work contract), to the spatial distribution of the plantation in order to leave aside areas of local value, and to options for land sharing, as this is a major vehicle for fruitful coexistence.

Book Short Summary:

Jedes Jahr breiten sich invasive gebietsfremde Arten in neue Ökosysteme aus. Die von den Eindringlingen verursachten Auswirkungen können sich in kürzester Zeit bemerkbar machen und verheerend sein. Das Thema der invasiven gebietsfremden Arten ist umfassend, komplex und auf verschiedenen Ebenen von globaler Bedeutung. Verschärft wird es durch die Globalisierung der Weltwirtschaft und den zunehmenden Handel, durch den die natürlichen Barrieren für den Transfer von Arten durchbrochen werden. Invasive gebietsfremde Arten bedrohen die weltweite Nahrungsmittelversorgung, die Qualität und Verfügbarkeit von Trinkwasser sowie die Stromproduktion und -versorgung. Zusammen mit den zusätzlichen Risiken durch den globalen Klimawandel ist die weltweite Homogenisierung von Pflanzen, Tieren und Mikroben ein wesentlicher Faktor für den sich verschlechternden Gesundheitszustand der Ökosysteme und die nachlassenden Ökosystemdienstleistungen überall auf der Welt. Um dieser Entwicklung entgegenzuwirken, besteht die dringende Notwendigkeit einer einheitlichen Ausrichtung von Regierungen, Kulturen und Programmen und einer besseren grenzüberschreitenden Koordination. Nur so lassen sich die vielfältigen Bedrohungen durch invasive gebietsfremde Arten für die Umwelt, die Wirtschaft und die Gesundheit von Pflanzen und Tieren sowie insbesondere die menschliche Gesundheit effektiv bekämpfen. Dieses vierbändige Werk ist das erste, das einen umfassenden Satz nützlicher Materialien zu den zentralen Themen bereitstellt, um die gesamte globale Bedrohung durch invasive gebietsfremde Arten sowie die vielfältigen Probleme in verschiedenen Teilen der Welt deutlich zu machen, und es enthält Material, in dem potenziell replizierbare Lösungen zur Überwindung dieser Bedrohungen aufgezeigt werden. Das Werk betont die Bedrohung durch invasive gebietsfremde Arten auch im Sinne eines globalen ?Aufrufs zum Handeln?. Invasive Arten kennen keine Grenzen. Daher hoffen wir, dass wir durch die Zusammenstellung von Material, das unterschiedliche wissenschaftliche und gesellschaftliche Standpunkte aus aller Welt berücksichtigt, sowie durch die Vermittlung von Erkenntnissen und Beispielen zu einer Vielzahl damit zusammenhängender Themen das globale Bewusstsein stärken und einheitliche nationale Reaktionen auf die Bedrohung durch invasive gebietsfremde Arten fördern können.
