Download and read online Australian Native Plants in PDF and EPUB Australian Native Plants provides a comprehensive guide to the horticulture of our native plants. Based on nearly 50 years of experience at Kings Park and Botanic Garden in Perth, the book describes the necessary growing conditions for mainly Western Australian native plants and covers some of the more technical aspects such as plant propagation and grafting, the use and benefits of tissue culture, methods of seed collection and storage, and the role of smoke in improving germination. Western Australia is home to about five per cent of the world’s vascular plants and contains Australia’s only terrestrial ‘biodiversity hotspot’. Written by experts with an in-depth knowledge of how to grow these plants outside their natural habitat, Australian Native Plants provides the more technically minded professional or enthusiast with information based on decades of research, experimentation and application. It aims to encourage the growing of Australian plants so that they can be used more widely and contribute to interesting, attractive and diverse private gardens and public landscapes in a changing environment.

Download and read online Zur Aktualit t von Douglas Crimp in PDF and EPUB Douglas Crimp war in den 1980er Jahren Mitherausgeber der Zeitschrift October. Er formulierte wesentliche Positionen in der Diskussion um den US-amerikanischen Postmodernismus. Dessen künstlerische Praktiken fasste Crimp als Wiederaufgreifen des unvollendet gebliebenen Projekts der historischen Avantgarden, die Diktatur und Krieg aus Europa vertrieben hatten. In der Aids-Krise, die in der zweiten Hälfte der 1980er Jahre virulent wurde, entstand künstlerischer Aktivismus. Damit änderte sich der Aktionsradius für Crimp, der sich auch in der politischen Bewegung engagierte.

Download and read online El cultivo del olivo 7 ed in PDF and EPUB El Cultivo del Olivo se ha concebido como un texto de elevado nivel técnico dirigido a personas del sector: agricultores, industriales, técnicos, estudiantes y, en general, a todos aquellos interesados en el cultivo de esta planta milenaria. Por ello se diseñó como una obra colectiva. Se trataba de elaborar un libro permanentemente actualizado, que contara con la participación de expertos con los conocimientos científicos y técnicos precisos en cada uno de sus capítulos que permitieran al lector plantar y cultivar con éxito un olivar y obtener unos productos de calidad a la luz de los conocimientos actuales. Esta séptima edición aparece 20 años después de la primera. Durante este tiempo El Cultivo del Olivo se ha convertido en un referente del cambio experimentado por la olivicultura en un tiempo de continua renovación. La acogida de las seis anteriores ediciones y la publicación de la versión en inglés de la 5ª edición, algo excepcional en un libro agrícola, son indicadores del interés actual por el olivar y sus productos, de la proyección internacional del cambio experimentado por la olivicultura en España, y de la creciente capacidad del sistema de investigación y desarrollo en nuestro país. Desde la sexta edición, hace 8 años, se ha producido un continuo aumento de conocimientos, lo que ha dado lugar a la necesidad de reestructurar capítulos y a ampliar el contenido de la mayoría de ellos. También se han incorporado nuevos autores, un cambio relacionado con la renovación generacional. Para los editores, contar con ellos supone una grata satisfacción. Garantizan la continuidad de la actualización de los avances científicos y técnicos en el olivar y sus productos y, por tanto, el futuro. Por ello, queremos agradecer la participación de aquellos que nos han acompañado desde la primera edición y dar la bienvenida a los nuevos, que han contribuido eficientemente a la actualización del libro. Entre todos ponemos a disposición de olivareros, científicos y técnicos, y del público en general, este tratado concebido, desde la primera edición, para la utilidad y disfrute de sus lectores y estudiosos.

Download and read online Ethnic Culinary Herbs in PDF and EPUB Cilantro, lemon grass, and ginger root provide the distinctive flavor of many Asian and Pacific Rim dishes. In Hawai'i these herbs are used in everyday cooking as well as in the elaborate cuisine created by some of the Island's most innovative chefs. Yet even in Hawai'i, people find it difficult to identify these common herbs in the market or garden. Ethnic Culinary Herbs is a fully illustrated guidebook that describes more than thirty herbs grown, sold, and used in Hawai'i. (Many can also be found in ethnic produce markets throughout North America.) Unlike most herb books, which cover the same limited range of species (largely those of European and Mediterranean origin), this volume brings together information about herbs from other parts of the world and not only identifies the plants but also explains their use and cultivation. Each species is identified by its scientific name, and common names are listed for several languages spoken in Hawai'i. (For example, the Chinese or garlic chive is also identified by its Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Thai, and Vietnamese names.) A brief, nontechnical description of each herb is accompanied by a full-page line drawing and one or more color photographs. Entries on culinary use are followed by specific instructions for the herb's cultivation and best methods of propagation. Pests and diseases are discussed as well as their control and treatment. An index of common and scientific names permits access to main entries using any name available to the reader. For those interested in observing growing plants, an appendix provides the location of all Honolulu Community Garden sites, where many of the herbs can be found. Herb fanciers, chefs, gardeners, and botanists will be delighted with this thoroughly reliable and useful guide.

Download and read online Roulette Gl ck und Geschick in PDF and EPUB Seit ein paar Jahrhunderten ist das Roulette der Inbegriff des klassischen Casinospiels, das als Modell für Zufall und Wahrscheinlichkeit bis heute eine Brücke zwischen Mathematik und Gesellschaft schlägt. Pierre Basieux, promovierter Mathematiker, hat die wissenschaftliche und praktische Erforschung dieses Spiels nicht nur einige Jahrzehnte als Hobby betrieben, sondern es auch revolutioniert und mehrere Bücher darüber geschrieben. In den letzten zwanzig Jahren waren er und sein Spiel immer wieder Gegenstand von Reportagen in Zeitschriften und Zeitungen (ZEIT Wissen, Casino news, GEO WISSEN, Die Woche). Zusammenfassend legt Basieux nun ein strukturiertes Werk mit den folgenden Hauptkapiteln vor: KLASSISCHES ROULETTE – DAS IDEALISIERTE SPIEL; FEHLERHAFTES ROULETTE – ELEMENTARE UNVOLLKOMMENHEITEN; GLEICHMÄSSIGES ROULETTE – DER FAKTOR MENSCH; BALLISTISCHES ROULETTE – GEHEIMNISSE DES SICHTBAREN. Über das bereits Bekannte hinaus enthält das Buch vor allem entscheidende Ergänzungen, die bisher in Buchform absichtlich nicht preisgegeben wurden, neue praktische Aspekte, vor allem in den Bereichen Wurfweitenspiel und Kesselgucken, und wesentliche Vereinfachungen, die sich aus diesen neuen praktischen Erkenntnissen ergeben. Nur wenige wissenschaftlich Ausgebildete scheinen sich mit Gewinnmethoden bei Glücksspielen und speziell im Roulette zu befassen. Das ist erstaunlich, zumal kreative, innovative Lösungen auf diesem Gebiet nicht nur eine große Faszination ausüben und die Wirkungsmacht wissenschaftlicher Methoden demonstrieren, sondern auch bei richtiger Anwendung und der nötigen Vorsicht eine Komponente zur finanziellen Unabhängigkeit für eine freie, selbstbestimmte Lebensgestaltung bilden können. Doch jenseits der Nützlichkeit versteht sich dieses Buch auch als ein populärwissenschaftlicher Beitrag zur menschlichen Kultur.
