Dans le Monde Hyborien de Conan le barbare, une paysanne des steppes d'Hyrkanie vit ses derniers moments d'insouciance. Des mercenaires font irruption et tuent sa famille avant d'abuser d'elle. Scathach, la déesse rouge, entendant les suppliques de la pauvrette, la pare d'un don pour le maniement des armes qui la rend invincible. Une seule condition : elle ne devra en aucun cas s'adonner à la chair avec un homme qui ne l'aura dominé au combat. Ainsi naît Red Sonja, la diablesse à l'épée et au tempérament revêche. Née d'une nouvelle de Robert E. Howard, le créateur de Conan, et d'un scénario de RoyThomas, Red Sonja prend corps dans la tenue qu'on lui connaît sous le trait d'Esteban Maroto et prendra son essor dans une série à son nom avec Frank Thorne, en1975. Ce livre est le premier d'une série de 4.

Using a case-based approach, Colorectal Surgery: Clinical Care and Management provides practical, clinical and expert guidance to illustrate the best care and clinical management of patients requiring colorectal surgery for colorectal disease. Real-life cases illustrate the entire syllabus of GI/colorectal surgery, being specially selected to highlight topical or controversial aspects of colorectal care. Cases have a consistent approach throughout and as well as outlining the actual management of each individual case, also offer an honest appraisal of the chosen management route, its successes and areas that could have been managed differently. Pedagogic features such as learning and decision points boxes aid rapid understanding/learning, enabling the reader to improve their patient management. In full colour and containing over 100 outstanding clinical photos and slides to support the cases, each section also covers recent developments/ landmark papers/ scoring systems and a thorough discussion of clinical management based on the major society guidelines from NICE, ASCRS and ECCO. Reliable, well-written and perfect for consultation in the clinical setting, Colorectal Surgery: Modern Clinical Care and Management is the perfect tool for all members of the multi-disciplinary team managing patients suffering from colorectal disease, specifically GI surgeons, gastroenterologists, oncologists and general surgeons.
Presenting the current state of the art in scaling and uncertainty in ecology, Wu et al's Scaling and Uncertainty Analysis in Ecology is the first book of its kind - explicitly considering uncertainty and error analysis as an integral part of scaling.
Primarily, the book draws together a series of important case studies to provide a comprehensive review and synthesis of the most recent concepts, theories and methods in scaling and uncertainty analysis. It compares current definitions and ideas concerning scale within a coherent framework, and examines two key scaling approaches: similarity-based scaling, which is rooted in the idea of similitude or self-similarity; and dynamic model-based scaling, which emphasizes processes and mechanisms.
With case studies focusing on issues ranging from population to ecosystem processes; from biodiversity to landscape patterns; and from basic research to multidisciplinary management and policy-making, the book will appeal to both researchers and practitioners working on landscape issues. It will also provide a valuable resource for graduate students and professional trainees in ecology, environmental policy, resource management and global change science.
Climate change and the pressures of escalating human demands on the environment have had increasing impacts on landscapes across the world. In this book, world-class scholars discuss current and pressing issues regarding the landscape, landscape ecology, social and economic development, and adaptive management. Topics include the interaction between landscapes and ecological processes, landscape modeling, the application of landscape ecology in understanding cultural landscapes, biodiversity, climate change, landscape services, landscape planning, and adaptive management to provide a comprehensive view that allows readers to form their own opinions.Professor Bojie Fu is an Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chair of scientific committee at the Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China.Professor K. Bruce Jones is the Executive Director for Earth and Ecosystem Sciences Division at Desert Research Institute, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, USA.
