The dictionary is a compilation of clear, concise and informative definitions of the characteristic vocabulary commonly encountered and used by herpetologists when discussing, reading, or writing about reptiles and amphibians. It is intended for all those who have an interest in these animals, from the amateur hobbyist who may find himself faced with what can be a rather intimidating scientific term or technical expression, to the trained zoologist who may sometimes have doubts over the exact meaning of a particular term. It will, it is hoped, not only be a useful source of reference to all who are either actively or passively involved in some aspects of herpetology whether they be keepers, curators, breeders, researchers, teachers or students, but an interesting read as well.

Hardbound. This dictionary provides information on animal species and terminology concerning hunting and wildlife management. Basic to the whole book is a concern for reconciling hunting and wildlife conservation, the former being viewed as the wise exploitation of a valuable natural resource compatible with the practice of an enjoyable field sport, and the latter being viewed as active conservation as opposed to static preservation.The first part includes lists of animal species (and subspecies) which can be considered game in a wide sense, i.e. not only those which are the object of direct exploitation by shooting or other forms of hunting, but also species of interest from the point of view of wildlife conservation in general, biological equilibrium or tourism (1,800 entries). These lists are arranged in systematic order for each main region of the world, including the oceans (sea mammals and sea-birds).The second part of the dictionary present

Elsevier's Dictionary of Aquatic Biology contains terms related to marine and freshwater animals and plants and their environment. Terms from general biology and those related to water in some way or another are widely represented. Terms from the following applied fields are included: Water quality assessment, water purification, biotechnology, aquaculture, and - above all - commercial fisheries, and fish culture. Also included are main terms of laboratory technique and seamanship currently used in texts on fisheries and marine expeditions, as well as names of fishes, mammals, amphibians, waterfowl and water plants, and some geographical names, as far as they present difficulties for translation. The dictionary stems from the senior author's 40 years of experience as a professional translator and a professional biologist in the field of aquatic animals and plants. The junior author, a specialist in algology and mycology, also participated in all aspects of the compilation of this dictionary. This dictionary will be a useful tool for translators and scientists dealing with hydrobiology, ecology, oceanology, limnology, ichthyology, fisheries, and other applied fields. It will also contribute to a more precise understanding in this period of development of scientific and commercial communications between many countries of the world and Russia.

This dictionary includes some 9200 terms, each with a definition and often and additional descriptive text in English, the terms being translated in French, German and Spanish. It is more complete than similar previously published dictionaries or glossaries, and contains all fields of soil science as well as some adjacent fields of other earth sciences, agriculture and engineering. Present concepts and definitions are detailed along with earlier concepts, not only for historical reasons but also for developing new ideas. Concepts, terms and definitions usual in literature of various countries are discussed and compared, to offer an appropriate exchange of ideas. Soil classifications and methodologies for soil investigation coming from a score of European, American and other countries and international organisations are presented, and correlations between names of soil taxa in different classifications are suggested. Readers active in all branches of soil science will find accessible answers to many of their questions, either directly referring to procedures used in the organisations where they work, or related to way of thinking in other countries. Readers active in other branches, but needing information on soils, will also find answers to this dictionary of great assistance to their research. * Over 9200 terms with definitions in English and translations in French, German, Spanish * Includes all fields of soil science and many connected sciences * All present-day terminology with inclusion of earlier, classical concepts and terms * Terminology in current USDA Soil Taxonomy, FAO World Reference Base or Soil Resources, and other documents from different countries Granted the "N.Cernescu" award from the Romanian Academy on Agricultural and Forestry Sciences

This dictionary will present all currently accepted generic, specific, sub-specific and variety names of trees, excluding fossil and more recently extinct taxa, hybrids and cultivars. Only the indigenous trees of a continent, those wild species that were natural elements of the spontaneous forest vegetation before the arrival of Europeans or other colonizers, are included. Each generic entry includes the family to which it is assigned, the synonyms of the Latin name, and the English, French, Spanish, trade and other names. For the English and French names the standard name is listed first, followed by other available names with, in parentheses, the countries where they are used. Where appropriate, names in additional languages are also included. Each infrageneric (species, subspecies, variety) entry includes, in addition, the distribution, height, type of foliage, ecological characteristics and main uses of the tree when available. In this volume only taxa indigenous on the North American continent are included, considered in a geographical, not in a political sense. This means from Alaska and Greenland to Panama, including Caribbean, but excluding Hawaii.

In scientific and commercial usage, a plant is designated by its Latin name. That is the simplest and most logical method and the only one precluding misunderstandings among professionals from all parts of the world. The layman, however, knows the plants mainly by their common designations and these vary from region to region and from country to country. One of the objectives of this work is therefore to simplify the correlation between the popular and the scientific names. The reader can find, quickly and conveniently, the Latin name of each tree or shrub. A unique feature of this book is that for each genus and species the author has mentioned its family, country of origin and some botanical characteristics. This multilingual dictionary comprises approximately 2,300 Latin names subdivided into 140 families, 510 genera, 1,650 species and varieties, together with their common denominations in English, French, German and Italian. The vast majority of the trees and shrubs mentioned are to be found in the temperate zones of the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Only a small number of trees typical of subtropical climates have been included. Being both a working tool and a reference book, this dictionary is intended not only for the professional but also for the layman wishing to extend his knowledge of the common names of the innumerable trees and shrubs growing on our planet.
