A September 2001 meeting held in Nice, France, examined current knowledge on confined turbidite systems, in particular the Gr s d'Annot. Work from the meeting covers aspects such as structural geology, sedimentary geology and sequence stratigraphy, modeling of sedimentary processes and architectures, geochemistry, reservoir characterization, seismi

All the aspects of care and cultivation of a plant that offers fantastic versatility and color for nearly every month of the year Alpines have been a favorite plant for generations of gardeners and are as popular now as ever, as today's gardens generally become smaller. Whether planted in troughs, window boxes, raised beds, or between paving, alpines have great potential, offering some of the world's most exquisite flowers. This essential guide for beginners and enthusiasts covers traditional and contemporary settings; ideas for incorporating alpine plants into a new or existing garden plot; geometric planting ideas; advice on planting and maintenance; information on propogation methods and facilities; and an A–Z reference of more than 180 of the best alpine plants, with a useful table of flowering times.

This handbook in two volumes synthesises our knowledge about the ecology of Central Europe’s plant cover with its 7000-yr history of human impact, covering Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia. Based on a thorough literature review with 5500 cited references and nearly 1000 figures and tables, the two books review in 26 chapters all major natural and man-made vegetation types with their climatic and edaphic influences, the structure and dynamics of their communities, the ecophysiology of important plant species, and key aspects of ecosystem functioning. Volume I deals with forests and scrub vegetation and analyses the ecology of Central Europe’s tree flora, whilst Volume II is dedicated to the non-forest vegetation covering mires, grasslands, heaths, alpine habitats and urban vegetation. The consequences of over-use, pollution and recent climate change over the last century are explored and conservation issues addressed.
