Global Warming and Population Responses among Great Plains Birds By Paul Johnsgard
Paperback: $25.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
This book summarizes the evidence from 47 years (1967–2014) of Audubon Christmas Bird Counts and finds that bird populations and winter ranges have changed for many species in the Great Plains... More > states (the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and the Texas panhandle). The book offers quantitative descriptions of the winter abundance for 147 of the most commonly encountered regional species, illustrating their changes in geographic distributions and relative abundance between 1967 and 2014. As winters have become progressively warmer, the winter distributions of many birds have moved northward, by as much as two states for some species. Birds are responding to milder temperatures and longer periods of ice-free water and snow-free foraging sites in the Great Plains, and the shifts in their distribution provide critical indicators of the acceleration of global warming.< Less

This book is the natural follow-on of the discussion about Quantum Electro Dynamics (QED), begun with my former manual ''Alkali Atomic spectra'', mainly concerning with the description of the atom... More > structure. The Theory of Fields, and then the whole Standard Model, concern particles in relativistic motion. Then an atom is ionized and nuclei and particles are brought to collide at relativistic energies. In order to investigate the dynamics an appropriate model is needed. Particles are represented as fields and those fields are themselves quantized as for second quantization. The definition of the Electro-Weak theory and the concept of symmetry breaking are just the prelude to all the physics behind Supersymmetry and Gravitation, and eventually to the Grand Unification Theories (GUT).< Less
