      Hi, my name is Kristina Lynn and I'm a wildlife biologist and environmental activist. My life is walking pumas through the Amazon Rainforest, tracking wolves through the boreal forests of Canada, and fighting on the protest lines for the rights of animals. Large irrigation projects which impound or divert river water have the potential to cause major environmental disturbances, resulting from changes in the hydrology and limnology of river basins. Reducing the river flow changes flood plain land use and ecology and can cause salt water intrusion in the river and into the groundwater of adjacent. The book specifically addresses the novel disturbance observer based control (DOBC) methodologies for uncertain and nonlinear systems in time domain. It also examines novel anti-disturbance control and filtering with the composite hierarchical architecture to enhance control and filtering for the complex control systems with multiple disturbances.

Disturbances to the forest ecosystem structure can be caused by phenomena such as fire, extreme weather (drought, wind, and ice storms),deer overpopulation, and invasive non-native pest species (fungal diseases, insects, and weedy plants), as well as by anthropogenic factors such as global climate change, logging, development, and arson.

Ecological disturbances, whether major or minor, are events or forces, of nonbiological or biological origin, that bring about mortality to organisms and change to their spatial patterning in the ecosystems they inhabit.

Disturbances play significant roles in shaping the structure of individual populations and the character of whole ecosystems. 1. Introduction.
