            Why does everything happen to me? I must be the most unluckiest bastard in the world This is Jim Horncastles constant refrain as he struggles to provide for his eight children and devoted, forebearing wife Noeline on a run-down farm at Karamea, on the west coast of New Zealands S...outh Island. Forty years later his second son Graeme tells the familys story across two generations. Tinged throughout with humour, tragedy and pathos, it is a remarkable account of life in New Zealand.

            Biogeography in a Changing World

            Biogeography in a Changing World (Paperback)

            Hampered by a confusing plethora of approaches and methods, biogeography is often treated as an adjunct to other areas of study. The first book to fully define this rapidly emerging subdiscipline, Biogeography in a Changing World elucidates the principles of biogeography and pave...s the way for its evolution into a stand-alone field. Drawing on contributions from leading proponents of differing methods within biogeography, the book clearly defines the differing, sometimes conflicting, perspectives in the field and their correspondingly different methodological approaches. This gives readers the opportunity to refocus on a range of issues including the role of biological processes such as vicariance, dispersal and extinction in biogeographical explanation, the possibility of biogeographical pattern, and the role of geological reconstructions in biogeographic explanation. The book also explores the discipline's current relationship with other disciplines and discusses potential developments.

            Evolutionary Computation with Biogeography-based Optimization

            Evolutionary computation algorithms are employed to minimize functions with large number of variables. Biogeography-based optimization (BBO) is an optimization algorithm that is based on the science of biogeography, which researches the migration patterns of species. These migrat...ion paradigms provide the main logic behind BBO. Due to the cross-disciplinary nature of the optimization problems, there is a need to develop multiple approaches to tackle them and to study the theoretical reasoning behind their performance. This manuscript intends to explain the mathematical model of BBO algorithm and its variants created to cope with continuous domain problems (with and without constraints) and combinatorial problems.

            A common assumption about cities throughout the world is that they are essentially an elaboration of the Euro-American model. This book attempts to show that this is not always the case and that novel forms of urbanism do exist in Southeast Asia.
