Farm-Level Microsimulation Modelling
118,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book, which is the first to be published in the emerging field of farm-level microsimulation, highlights the different methodological components of microsimulation modelling: hypothetical, static, dynamic, behavioural, spatial and macro-micro. The author applies various microsimulation-based methodological tools to farms in a consistent manner and, supported by a set of Stata codes, undertakes analysis of a wide range of farming systems from OECD countries. To these case studies, ODonoghue incorporates farming policies such as CAP income support payments, agri-environmental schemes, forestry planting incentives and biomass incentives - in doing so, he illuminates the merits of microsimulation in this environment. Cathal ODonoghue is Dean of Arts and Social Sciences and Professor of Public and Social Policy at the National University of Ireland, Galway, Republic of Ireland. Prior to this, he was Head of Teagascs (Irelands Agriculture and Food Development Authority) Rural Economy and Development Programme. He was CEO of the Irish Governments Commission for the Economic Development of Rural Areas from 2012 to 2014, and President of the International Microsimulation Association from 2011 to 2015.

Environmental Modeling with Stakeholders - Theo...

This volume brings together, in a central text, chapters written by leading scholars working at the intersection of modeling, the natural and social sciences, and public participation. This book presents the current state of knowledge regarding the theory and practice of engaging stakeholders in environmental modeling for decision-making, and includes basic theoretical considerations, an overview of methods and tools available, and case study examples of these principles and methods in practice. Although there has been a significant increase in research and development regarding participatory modeling, a unifying text that provides an overview of the different methodologies available to scholars and a systematic review of case study applications has been largely unavailable. This edited volume seeks to address a gap in the literature and provide a primer that addresses the growing demand to adopt and apply a range of modeling methods that includes the public in environmental assessment and management. The book is divided into two main sections. The first part of the book covers basic considerations for including stakeholders in the modeling process and its intersection with the theory and practice of public participation in environmental decision-making. The second part of the book is devoted to specific applications and products of the various methods available through case study examination. This second part of the book also provides insight from several international experts currently working in the field about their approaches, types of interactions with stakeholders, models produced, and the challenges they perceived based on their practical experiences. Steven Gray is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Community Sustainability at Michigan State University. His research focuses on the theory and practice of participatory modeling and developing decision-support software to help communities, resource managers, and other decision-makers to understand the social impacts of environmental change through modeling. Michael Paolisso is a Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Maryland whose research seeks to demonstrate how cultural models of the environment have a direct bearing on the use and management of natural resources, and how cognitive-cultural approaches and collaborative learning improve scientist and public understanding, dialogue, and collaboration in addressing environmental issues. Rebecca Jordan is a Professor in the Department of Human Ecology at Rutgers University. Trained as a behavioral ecologist her scholarly work focusses on public participation in scientific research and the contribution of learning to the sustainability of coupled social-ecological systems. Stefan Gray currently works as an adviser to the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment in Wellington, New Zealand. At the time of the production of this book, Stefan held a Research Fellowship funded by the Irish Environmental Protection Agency, supporting climate change adaptation at central and local government levels in Ireland. His research in Europe focused on issues related to expanding decision-making in environmental management to incorporate complex adaptive systems theory.

The bestselling introduction to designing the written word Typographic Design: Form & Communication is the definitive reference for graphic designers, providing a comprehensive introduction to the visual word. Done well, typopgraphy can communicate so much more than the words themselves.

This book provides essential guidance on everything related to type: from letterforms and negative space, to messaging, processes, and history, aspiring designers will find great utility in mastering these critical concepts. This new seventh edition has been fully updated with new coverage of contemporary typography processes, updated case studies, and new examples from branding, print, web, motion, and more.

Typography can make or break a page, can enhance or overpower an image, and can obscure a message or bring it into sharp focus. It is one of the most powerful tools in the graphic designers arsenal, and Typographic Design is the complete, practical introduction.

Small Arcs of Larger Circles - Framing Through ...
14,23 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Truly a great and life changing read! This is an important first collection of essays, reflections and poems by Nora Bateson, the noted research designer, film-maker, writer and lecturer. She is the daughter of Gregory Bateson, president of the International Bateson Institute (IBI) and an adviser to numerous bodies at international and governmental level. Building on Gregory Batesons famous book Towards an Ecology of Mind and her own film on the subject, Nora Bateson here updates our thinking on systems and ecosystems, applying her own insights and those of her team at IBI to education, organisations, complexity, academia, and the way that society organizes itself. She also introduces two terms: • symmathesy to describe the contextual mutual learning through interaction that takes place in living entities at larger or smaller scales • transcontextuality to describe the multiple, interlayered spatial, social, temporal, cultural, ecological, economic contexts in which symmathesy takes place. While she retains her fathers rigorous attention to definition, observation and academic precision, she also moves well beyond that frame of reference to incorporate more embodied ways of knowing and understanding. These are reflected in her essays and poems on food, Christmas, love, honesty, environmentalism and leadership. The book offers important advice and new thinking on issues like immigration, systems thinking, new economic and financial models, future thinking and strategic planning, sustainability and governmental ethics, agency in organizational leadership, the education system and organizational governance. Readers reviews You will be nourished in your reading, aesthetically and ethically. It is yet another Bateson work of art. - Imelda McCarthy, PhD Systemic Therapist, Dublin, Ireland. Nora Batesons Small Arcs of Larger Circles is perhaps the most important and vital book I have ever read. - Peter Le Breton, PhD This book offered me the texture, depth and breath of trans-contextual context for one to meander and develop multiple description. Thank you Nora for producing this masterpiece. Everyone should read it especially those who have concern with looking at the complexities our world is facing. - Maimunah Mosli, Principal Family Therapist, Singapore This is a book not to be read but experienced - 5 star Amazon review
