Inspired by the work of the renowned fisheries scientist Daniel Pauly, this book provides a detailed overview of ecosystem-based management of fisheries. It explores the complex and interdisciplinary nature of the subject by bringing together contributions from some of the world's leading fisheries scientists, managers and conservationists. Combining both research reviews and opinion pieces, and reflecting the breadth of Pauly's influence within the field, the book illustrates the range of issues associated with the implementation of the ecosystem approach and the challenge of long-term sustainability. Topics covered include global biodiversity, the impact of human actions on marine life, the implications for economic and social systems and the role of science in communicating and shaping ocean policy to preserve resources for the future. This book provides a complete and essential overview for advanced researchers and those just entering the field.

NEW 2016 EDITION INCLUDES NEW RESEARCH ON HBOT AS A GENE THERAPY TO TREAT TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (TBI) AND OTHER DISORDERS. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is based on a simple idea—that oxygen can be used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions where tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation. Inspiring and informative, The Oxygen Revolution, Third Edition is the comprehensive, definitive guide to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. HBOT directly affects the body at the genetic level, affecting over 8,000 individual genes—those responsible for healing, growth, and anti-inflammation. Dr. Paul G. Harch’s research and clinical practice has shown that this noninvasive and painless treatment can help those suffering from brain injury or such diseases as: - Stroke - Autism and other learning disabilities - Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries - Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and other degenerative neurological diseases - Emergency situations requiring resuscitation, such as cardiac arrest, carbon monoxide poisoning, or near drowning For those affected by these seemingly “hopeless” diseases, there is finally hope in a proven solution: HBOT.

This program provides individuals who have a job-related duty to respond to emergencies with the knowledge and skills to recognize and provide care in respiratory and cardiac emergencies. These skills include performing two-rescuer CPR and techniques for special rescue situations, using resuscitation masks and bag-valve masks for ventilating victims, and minimizing the risk of disease transmission in emergency situations. This program also covers special situations professional rescuers are likely to encounter and the use of specialized equipment, most notably automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

Oxygen Transport in Red Blood Cells contains the proceedings of the 12th Aharon Katzir Katchalsky Conference held at Tours, France on April 4-7, 1984. Organized into 16 chapters, this book begins with a discussion on the influence of heme pocket geometry on ligand binding to heme proteins. Subsequent chapters describe a genetic approach to producing oxygen affinity differences; clinical importance of the oxygen transport function of preserved red blood cells; methods for the measurement of oxygen equilibrium curves of red cell suspensions and hemoglobin solutions; and aspects of oxygen supply to tissue. Other chapters elucidate interactions between hemoglobin and erythrocyte membrane and membrane protein oxidation; incorporation of allosteric effectors of hemoglobin in red blood cells; and significance of low hemoglobin oxygen affinity.The interaction of ligands and other molecules with hemoglobin and the storage of red blood cells having incorporated exogenous allosteric effectors of hemoglobin are also explained.
