This book contains field and laboratory research that analyze how environmental and physiological factors influence agonistic interactions and the impact these interactions have on the development of dominance relationships and resource use. This book highlights the importance for understanding shelter availability, abundance, and quality in different natural systems to develop a clearer understanding that the impact of shelter use and preference, opponent size, and sex have on dominance relationships. Animals were also shown to exhibit different social behaviors during interactions. Male and female crayfish also engage one another in natural systems and make the choice to engage in agonistic bouts or mating behavior. Animals communicate during interactions and compete for both resources and mates that are essential for increasing an individual s fitness. Research on the underlying mechanisms that influence motivation can provide a clearer understanding of how to manipulate and alter aggression and the dominance relationships that are so prevalent in many animal systems.

Environmental Security and Ecoterrorism
203,29 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In recent years, the concept of environmental security has been adapted to include preparedness for acts of ecoterrorism. This latter term has now become synonymous with environmental terrorism where the perpetrator uses the environment as a weapon to harm an opponent. The intended outcome is usually large-scale deaths, severe damage to the environment, and instilling fear in the general population. This book explores various facets of ecoterrorism including the role of the state in pursuing and maintaining environmental security, a review of the concept of ecoterrorism, food security challenges and weaknesses, technological countermeasures to enable rapid detection or response, and existing pollution sources and hazards that may serve as targets for terrorist acts. In sum, this volume provides a useful overview for both the layperson and experienced researchers.

The Plains Indian War was one of the most controversial conflicts in American military history, as the US Army faced a tough opponent that challenged it for decades following the end of the Civil War. The Army leadership endured a severe lack of resources, political constraints, an indifferent public, tough environmental conditions, and other problems of the frontier. Army officers and men had to adapt to these constraints, and this period also proved to be a trial of the ability and endurance of the common soldier. This title details the organization, development, training, tactics and command structures of the US Army during its subjugation of the Plains Indian tribes.
