Thorp and Covich's Freshwater Invertebrates

Ecology and General Biology

 

4th ed. Academic Press, 2015.

ISBNs 9780123850263

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Readers familiar with the first three editions of Ecology and Classification of North American Freshwater Invertebrates (edited by J.H. Thorp and A.P. Covich) will welcome the comprehensive revision and expansion of that trusted professional reference manual and educational textbook from a single North American tome into a developing multi-volume series covering inland water invertebrates of the world. The series entitled Thorp and Covich’s Freshwater Invertebrates (edited by J.H. Thorp) begins with the current Volume I: Ecology and General Biology (edited by J.H. Thorp and D.C. Rogers), which is designed as a companion volume for the remaining books in the series. Those following volumes provide taxonomic coverage for specific zoogeographic regions of the world, starting with Keys to Nearctic Fauna (Vol. II) and Keys to Palaearctic Fauna (Vol. III). Volume I maintains the ecological and general biological focus of the previous editions but now expands coverage globally in all chapters, includes more taxonomic groups (e.g., chapters on individual insect orders), and covers additional functional topics such as invasive species, economic impacts, and functional ecology. As in previous editions, the 4th edition of Ecology and Classification of North American Freshwater Invertebrates is designed for use by professionals in universities, government agencies, and private companies as well as by undergraduate and graduate students.

  • Global coverage of aquatic invertebrate ecology
  • Discussions on invertebrate ecology, phylogeny, and general biology written by international experts for each group
  • Separate chapters on invasive species and economic impacts and uses of invertebrates
  • Eight additional chapters on insect orders and a chapter on freshwater millipedes
  • Four new chapters on collecting and culturing techniques, ecology of invasive species, economic impacts, and ecological function of invertebrates
  • Overall expansion of ecology and general biology and a shift of the even more detailed taxonomic keys to other volumes in the projected 9-volume series
  • Identification keys to lower taxonomic levels

Thoughts on Interaction Design

 

Morgan Kaufmann, 2010.

ISBNs 9780123786241

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Thoughts on Interaction Design explores the theory behind the field of Interaction Design in a new way. It aims to provide a better definition of Interaction Design that encompasses the intellectual facets of the field and the particular methods used by practitioners in their day-to-day experiences. It also attempts to provide Interaction Designers with the vocabulary necessary to justify their existence to other team members.
The book positions Interaction Design in a way that emphasizes the intellectual facets of the discipline. It discusses the role of language, argument, and rhetoric in the design of products, services, and systems. It examines various academic approaches to thinking about Design, and concludes that the Designer is a liberal artist left to infuse empathy in technologically driven products. The book also examines the tools and techniques used by practitioners. These include methods for structuring large quantities of data, ways of thinking about users, and approaches for thinking about human behavior as it unfolds over time. Finally, it introduces the idea of Interaction Design as an integral facet of the business development process.

*First book to provide a solid definition and framework for the booming field of interaction design, finally giving designers the justification needed to prove their essential role on every development team

*Provides designers with tools they need to operate effectively in the workplace without compromising their goals: making useable, useful, and desirable products

*Outlines process, theory, practice, and challenges of interaction design – intertwined with real world stories from a variety of perspectives

Thoughts on Interaction Design

 

2nd ed. Morgan Kaufmann, 2011.

ISBNs 9780123809308

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Thoughts on Interaction Design, Second Edition, contemplates and contributes to the theory of Interaction Design by exploring the semantic connections that live between technology and form that are brought to life when someone uses a product. These connections may be thought of as interactions that, in aggregate, make up behavior, and are beginning to hint that a field known as design is a legitimately separate area of study alongside science or art.
This text defines Interaction Design in a way that emphasizes the intellectual and cultural facets of the discipline. It discusses the role of language, argument, and rhetoric in the design of products, services, and systems. This idea of language is extended to poetry, and the idea of a poetic interaction that affects not only the mind and body but also the soul is introduced. The text examines the process Interaction Designers in approaching complicated problems related to behavior and time. This process includes structuring large quantities of data, thinking about users, and attempting to support human behavior as it unfolds over time. Finally, the text prescribes a purposeful extraction of Interaction Design from the confines of business to leverage the design process for social, political, and economic problem solving.

*Provides new and fresh insights on designing for behavior in a world of increased connectivity and mobility and how design education has evolved over the decades

*Maintains the informal-yet-informative voice that made the first edition so popular

William Andrew Publishing, 2016.

ISBNs 9780323353212

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Three-Dimensional Microfabrication Using Two-Photon Polymerization (TPP) is the first comprehensive guide to TPP microfabrication—essential reading for researchers and engineers in areas where miniaturization of complex structures is key, such as in the optics, microelectronics, and medical device industries.

TPP stands out among microfabrication techniques because of its versatility, low costs, and straightforward chemistry. TPP microfabrication attracts increasing attention among researchers and is increasingly employed in a range of industries where miniaturization of complex structures is crucial: metamaterials, plasmonics, tissue engineering, and microfluidics, for example.

Despite its increasing importance and potential for many more applications, no single book to date is dedicated to the subject. This comprehensive guide, edited by Professor Baldacchini and written by internationally renowned experts, fills this gap and includes a unified description of TPP microfabrication across disciplines.

The guide covers all aspects of TPP, including the pros and cons of TPP microfabrication compared to other techniques, as well as practical information on material selection, equipment, processes, and characterization.

Current and future applications are covered and case studies provided as well as challenges for adoption of TPP microfabrication techniques in other areas are outlined. The freeform capability of TPP is illustrated with numerous scanning electron microscopy images.

Tide-Dominated Han River Delta, Korea, The

Geomorphology, Sedimentology, and Stratigraphic Architecture

 

Elsevier, 2015.

ISBNs 9780128007686

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

The Tide-Dominated Han River Delta provides a thorough analysis of a river delta in which tidal currents have reworked the river-borne sediment, generating characteristic geomorphological and sedimentological signatures in the process.  Such "tide-dominated" deltas are common in the modern ocean, forming the substrate upon which entire populations are built.  Furthermore, ancient examples contain enormous volumes of hydrocarbon.  Despite this, tide-dominated deltas remain less well understood than their wave- and river-dominated counterparts, largely because processes within them are inherently more complex and fewer modern examples have been investigated in detail.

This multi-year study by a team of experts in coastal geoscience represents the most complete documentation of a tide-dominated delta to date.  Results help advance, and are applicable to, a broad range of fields within sedimentary geology, including clastic sedimentology, seismic and sequence stratigraphy, and coastal geomorphology, in addition to petroleum geology and reservoir engineering.

  • Offers new access to results of a multi-year hydrocarbon-reservoir analogue study not available elsewhere
  • Features 75 full-color figures and illustrations to emphasize critical aspects of the delta’s sedimentology, geomorphology, and stratigraphy
  • Provides basic data that better define what tide-dominated deltas are, how these complex systems behave over time, and why this is so
  • Aids petroleum geologists and reservoir engineers in predicting the distribution of baffles and barriers in tide-dominated sediment bodies, helping in the successful development of reservoirs
