Capital Budgeting

Financial Appraisal of Investment Projects

This book explains the financial appraisal of capital budgeting projects. The coverage extends from the development of basic concepts, principles and techniques to the application of them in increasingly complex and real-world situations. Identification and estimation (including forecasting) of cash flows, project appraisal formulae, and the application of net present value (NPV), internal rate of return (IRR) and other project evaluation criteria are illustrated with a variety of calculation examples. Risk analysis is extensively covered by the use of risk adjusted discount rate, certainty equivalent, sensitivity, simulation and Monte Carlo analysis. The NPV and IRR models are further applied to forestry, property and international investments. Resource constraints are introduced to the capital budgeting decisions with a variety of worked examples using linear programming technique. All calculations are extensively supported by Excel workbooks on the Web, and each chapter is well reviewed by end of chapter questions.

Finalvalues of$50and$20 for the two capital constraints (in Table 11.7) suggest
that the entire budget allotment of$50in year1and$20in year 2 has been fully
exhausted by the optimal solution. Therefore, both these constraints have
become ...

Arthropods of Tropical Forests

Spatio-Temporal Dynamics and Resource Use in the Canopy

Arthropods are the most diverse group of organisms on our planet and the tropical rainforests represent the most biologically diverse of all ecosystems. This book, written by 79 authors contributing to 35 chapters, aims to provide an overview of data collected during recent studies in Australia, Africa, Asia, and South America. The book focuses on the distribution of arthropods and their use of resources in the rainforest canopies, providing a basis for comparison between the forest ecosystems of the main biogeographical regions. Topics covered include the distribution of arthropods along vertical gradients and the relationship between the soil/litter habitat and the forest canopy. The temporal dynamics of arthropod communities, habitats and food selection are examined within and among tropical tree crowns, as are the effects of forest disturbance. This important book is a valuable addition to the literature used by community ecologists, conservation biologists entomologists, botanists and forestry experts.

ABSTRACT Insect herbivory, species richness and distribution in the canopy of
tropical savanna is compared with that of tropical rainforests by compiling
published information from various savanna and forest habitats in the neotropics,
Africa and Australasia. An overview of herbivory patterns is presented,
contrasting species- rich plant assemblages with natural monodominant tree
populations. Data suggest that host trees suffer greater herbivory in savannas
than in rainforests and in ...

Timber Production and Biodiversity Conservation in Tropical Rain Forests

Timber production is often the most economic form of land use in areas of tropical forest; forest preservation is rarely so. This book attempts to bridge the current gap between conservation requirements and commercial interests, indicating the possibilities for integrated management of tropical forests. The aim is to create a practical approach for the management of production forest as a supplement to totally-protected forest in the conservation of tropical biodiversity.

PREFACE In the late 1970s, I was somewhat surprised to find myself conducting
the first detailed work on the ecological effects of timber logging in a tropical rain
forest. Surprised, that is, that so little had been conducted beforehand. Due
mainly to the medium of television, enormous public interest had been kindled
concerning the fate of the rain forests. In response to this interest, a flood of
popular and scientific books and articles reporting on the consequences of
tropical forest loss ...

The Ecology of Trees in the Tropical Rain Forest

Our knowledge of the ecology of tropical rain-forest trees is limited, with detailed information available for perhaps only a few hundred of the many thousand of species that occur. Yet a good understanding of the trees is essential to unravelling the workings of the forest itself. This book aims to summarise contemporary understanding of the ecology of tropical rain-forest trees. The emphasis is on comparative ecology, an approach that can help to identify possible adaptive trends and evolutionary constraints and which may also lead to a workable ecological classification for tree species, conceptually simplifying the rain-forest community and making it more amenable to analysis.

Yet a good understanding of the trees is essential to unravelling the workings of the forest itself. This book aims to summarise contemporary understanding of the ecology of tropical rain-forest trees.

The Phylogenetic Handbook

A Practical Approach to Phylogenetic Analysis and Hypothesis Testing

The Phylogenetic Handbook is a broad, hands on guide to theory and practice of nucleotide and protein phylogenetic analysis. This second edition includes six new chapters, covering topics such as Bayesian inference, tree topology testing and the impact of recombination on phylogenies, as well as a detailed section on molecular adaptation. The book has a stronger focus on hypothesis testing than the previous edition, with more extensive discussions on recombination analysis, detecting molecular adaptation and genealogy-based population genetics. Many chapters include elaborate practical sections, which have been updated to introduce the reader to the most recent versions of sequence analysis and phylogeny software, including BLAST, FastA, Clustal, T-coffee, Muscle, DAMBE, Tree-puzzle, Phylip, MEGA, PAUP*, IQPNNI, CONSEL, ModelTest, Prottest, PAML, HYPHY, MrBayes, BEAST, LAMARC, SplitsTree, and RDP. Many analysis tools are described by their original authors, resulting in clear explanations that constitute an ideal teaching guide for advanced-level undergraduate and graduate students.

2.1 lntrod Sequence databases and database searching THEORY Guy Bottu
uction Phylogenetic analyses are often based on sequence data accumulated by
many investigators. Faced with a rapid increase in the number of available
sequences, it is not possible to rely on the printed literature; thus, scientists had to
turn to digitalized databases. Databases are essential in current bioinformatic
research: they serve as information storage and retrieval locations; modern
databases come ...

Only the toothed whales, Odontoceti, have this capability, although baleen
whales do have the apparatus for echolocation in a vestigial form, which
suggests that they may have been capable of using echolocation in the past. I will
go on now to discuss odontocete skull anatomy and how echolocation is
achieved. If scores on IQ tests are anything to go by, it seems that people are
becoming more intelligent. Since the 1950s, test scores have been rising, and

Political and Legal Transformations of an Indonesian Polity

The Nagari from Colonisation to Decentralisation

Explores the relationships between matrilineal, Islamic and state law and investigates the dynamics of legal pluralism, governance and property relationships.

TRANSLATIONS. With regard to the Indonesian and Minangkabau language, we
have generally followed the new orthographic convention introduced in 1972.
However, in some of the old texts, names and titles quoted by us the old spelling (
dj instead of j; oe instead of u; j for what now is y) is retained. Sometimes both
spellings are used in the same document. Seeming inconsistencies of the same
word being spelt differently (sungai or sungei) are mainly owing to regional
