A Wireless Sensor Network is a collection of small devices with sensing, computation, and wireless communication capabilities. Energy consumption in these networks is directly proportional to the life time of the network. So, conservation of power during network operation becomes an important issue in WSNs.Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks has a strong effect on the network, which consumes a considerable amount of energy. To address this problem an Energy Aware Uniform Cluster-Head Distribution (EAUCD) technique, in which the cluster heads are uniformly distributed through out the network, which results in balancing the energy load in the network and increasing its life time is proposed here. The proposed EAUCD technique performs better in terms of conservation of power compared to the other cluster based routing protocol. The technique is validated through extensive simulation in various scenarios like increasing the area of simulation, increasing the number of nodes in the network, and changing the dispersion of nodes.

Manik Gupta Security Model Beyond Energy Dependency in Wireless Sensor Networks

Sensor Nodes in Military Applications always suffer constraints over energy due to their small size & when we want to apply hard security algorithms we need to consider the energy factors as well because security and energy always behave in inverse proportions. In this book, we have presented a security model independent of energy (SMIE) for Wireless Sensor Networks designed with actual availability of never lasting energy within the network rather than any assumption. This model provides ample amount of energy supplied wirelessly to the Base Station as well as to the sensor nodes in the deployment area, besides a new key management technique that overcomes the drawback of all existing strong keying techniques is proposed at a very reasonable cost. The solution is designed keeping in mind the deployment of sensor nodes in isolated environment as well as in military applications, where human interference is low but surveillance is at high priority. The book considers Base Station as flying object like UAV and provides solution to the challenges which it can face in such type of scenario. The book will open a number of new research aspects in the field of Wireless Sensor Networks.

Muhammad Zahir Shah Security and Privacy Issues in Wireless Sensor Networks

To achieve security in WSN it is important to be able to perform various cryptographic operations, including encryption, authentication and authorization. Keys for these cryptographic operations must be setup by communicating nodes before they can exchange information securely. Key management schemes are mechanisms which are used to establish and distribute various kinds of cryptographic keys in the network, such as individual keys, pairwise keys and group keys. Key management is essential cryptographic primitive upon which other security primitives are built. Most security requirements such as privacy, authenticity, integrity can be addressed by building solid key management framework.In fact, a secure key management scheme is the pre-requisite for the security of these primitives, and thus essential to achieving secure infrastructure in sensor networks. There are three types of key management schemes in wireless sensor networks namely Public key cryptographic, Trusted Server Based Schemes and Key Preistribution. The key predistribution is considered best approach for wireless sensor networks.

Maheswari P. Uma, Ramesh S. Secure and Efficient Data Transmission for Cluster-Based WSN

Secure data transmission is a critical issue for wireless sensor network (WSNs). Clustering is an effective and practical way to enhance the system performance of WSNs. We propose two Secure and Efficient data Transmission (SET) protocols for CWSNs, called SET-IBS and SET-IBOOS. In SET-IBS, security relies on the hardness of the Diffie-Hellman problem in the pairing domain. SET-IBOOS further reduces the computational overhead for protocol security, which is crucial for WSNs, while its security relies on the hardness of the discrete logarithm problem. We show the feasibility of the SET-IBS and SET-IBOOS protocols with respect to the security requirements and security analysis against various attacks.

Green communications is a very hot topic. As mobile networks evolve in terms of higher rates/throughput, a consequent impact on operating costs is due to (aggregate) network energy consumption. As such, design on 4G networks and beyond have increasingly started to focus on `energy efficiency’ or so-called ‘green’ networks. Many techniques and solutions have been proposed to enhance the energy efficiency of mobile networks, yet no book has provided an in-depth analysis of the energy consumption issues in mobile networks nor has detailed theories, tools and solutions for solving the energy efficiency problems. This book presents the techniques and solutions for enhancing energy efficiency of future mobile networks, and consists of three major parts. The first part presents a general description of mobile network evolution in terms of both capacity and energy efficiency. The second part discusses the advanced techniques to green mobile networks. The third part discusses the solutions that enhance mobile network energy efficiency as well as provides future directions. Whilst the reader is expected to have basic knowledge of wireless communications, the authors present a brief introduction of the evolution of mobile networks, providing the knowledge base for understanding the content of the book.

Massimo Vecchio In-network processing in Wireless Sensor Networks

Wireless sensor networks are currently an active research area mainly due to the potential of their applications. However, their deployment in large scale still requires solutions to a number of technical challenges that stem primarily from the features of the sensor nodes such as limited computational power, reduced communication bandwidth and small storage capacity. Indeed, sensor nodes are typically powered by batteries with limited capacity which do not guarantee an attractive lifetime of the nodes, unless adequate power saving policies are undertaken. In this book some novel approaches to distributed data aggregation and compression are proposed, inheriting techniques from the computational intelligence world, with the final aim of minimizing the energy consumption of the communication unit. The content should help shed some light on this new and exciting environment, and should be especially useful for sensor networking and embedded systems professionals including development engineers, researchers, system architects, in a wide variety of companies from the defense industry to the home computing and electronics industry.

The emerging wireless technologies target a comprehensive range of new applications that the legacy wireless networks cannot support. On the contrary, low rate, low power data collection applications have been anticipated to have a crucial impact on our understanding of the physical world. Simplified technological versions of wireless networks are being worked upon to support these low rate applications in order to meet the stringent requirements of low energy consumption. In wireless networks, Medium Access Control (MAC) sublayer plays a vital role in satisfying the requirement of varying Quality of Service (QoS). Many MAC solutions have been proposed for these networks. In this book, the feasibility of existing solutions for MAC sublayer are reviewed and analyzed for Wireless Sensor Networks. Then the analysis of MAC protocol for recently emerged low rate, low power IEEE 802.15.4 standard is presented. The impact of packet size and number of nodes on the throughput, success probability and average delay is analyzed with Markov chain and OPNET simulation.

Following the much acclaimed success of the first volume of Key Topics in Conservation Biology, this entirely new second volume addresses an innovative array of key topics in contemporary conservation biology. Written by an internationally renowned team of authors, Key Topics in Conservation Biology 2 adds to the still topical foundations laid in the first volume (published in 2007) by exploring a further 25 cutting-edge issues in modern biodiversity conservation, including controversial subjects such as setting conservation priorities, balancing the focus on species and ecosystems, and financial mechanisms to value biodiversity and pay for its conservation. Other chapters, setting the framework for conservation, address the sociology and philosophy of peoples’ relation with Nature and its impact on health, and such challenging practical issues as wildlife trade and conflict between people and carnivores. As a new development, this second volume of Key Topics includes chapters on major ecosystems, such as forests, islands and both fresh and marine waters, along with case studies of the conservation of major taxa: plants, butterflies, birds and mammals. A further selection of topics consider how to safeguard the future through monitoring, reserve planning, corridors and connectivity, together with approaches to reintroduction and re-wilding, along with managing wildlife disease. A final chapter, by the editors, synthesises thinking on the relationship between biodiversity conservation and human development. Each topic is explored by a team of top international experts, assembled to bring their own cross-cutting knowledge to a penetrating synthesis of the issues from both theoretical and practical perspectives. The interdisciplinary nature of biodiversity conservation is reflected throughout the book. Each essay examines the fundamental principles of the topic, the methodologies involved and, crucially, the human dimension. In this way, Key Topics in Conservation Biology 2, like its sister volume, Key Topics in Conservation Biology, embraces issues from cutting-edge ecological science to policy, environmental economics, governance, ethics, and the practical issues of implementation. Key Topics in Conservation Biology 2 will, like its sister volume, be a valuable resource in universities and colleges, government departments, and conservation agencies. It is aimed particularly at senior undergraduate and graduate students in conservation biology and wildlife management and wider ecological and environmental subjects, and those taking Masters degrees in any field relevant to conservation and the environment. Conservation practitioners, policy-makers, and the wider general public eager to understand more about important environmental issues will also find this book invaluable.

Rajesh Prasad Optimizing the Performance of a WMN using Network Coding

This book presents the design, testbed implementation and evaluation of XOR-Top, a protocol that uses local topology information for network coding for unicast transmission in wireless mesh networks. One of the main constraints in a wireless mesh network is limited bandwidth. Network coding has shown great potential to improve the overall throughput of wireless networks with broadcast nature. In this book, we have harnessed the benefits of network coding to improve the network throughput of a wireless mesh network which uses a omnidirectional broadcast. In this work, we implement and evaluate a new encoding strategy, XOR-Top, which relies on local topology information, and uses bitwise XOR for packet coding. In essence, we can say that in this book we have studied local topology assisted network coding, designed a new protocol (XOR-Top), verified the correctness of the new coding schemes by simulation as well as experimental testbed and completed the performance analysis of data collected by simulation and experiments.

In this title, the authors leap into a novel paradigm of scalability and cost-effectiveness, on the basis of resource reuse. In a world with much abundance of wirelessly accessible devices, WSN deployments should capitalize on the resources already available in the region of deployment, and only augment it with the components required to meet new application requirements. However, if the required resources already exist in that region, WSN deployment converges to an assignment and scheduling scheme to accommodate for the new application given the existing resources. Such resources are polled from many fields, including multiple WSNs already in the field, static networks (WiFi, WiMAX, cellular, etc) in addition to municipal, industrial and mobile resources.The architecture, framework and pricing policy, as well as approaches for backward compatibility with existing deployments, are presented in this book. We elaborate on the formalization of the problem, and contrast with existing work on coverage. This paradigm adopts optimal assignments in WSNs and exploits dynamic re-programming for boosting post-deployment and backward compatible protocols.

Waltenegus Dargie Principles and Applications of Ubiquitous Sensing

Applications which use wireless sensors are increasing in number. The emergence of wireless sensor networks has also motivated the integration of a large number of small and lightweight nodes which integrate sensors, processors, and wireless transceivers. Existing books on wireless sensor networks mainly focus on protocols and networks and pay little attention to the sensors themselves which the author believes is the main focus. Without adequate knowledge of sensors as well as how they can be designed, realized and used, books on wireless sensor networks become too theoretical and irrelevant. The purpose of this book is to intimately acquaint readers with the technique of sensing (resistive, capacitive, inductive, magnetic, inertial, etc.) and existing sensor technologies. It also discusses how the sensors are used in a wide application domain and how new sensors can be designed and used in a novel way.

Wireless networks represent an inexpensive and convenient way to connect to the Internet. However, despite their applications across several technologies, one challenge still remains: to understand the behavior of wireless sensor networks and assess their performance in large-scale scenarios. When a large number of network nodes need to interact, developing suitable analytical models is essential to ensure the appropriate coverage and throughput of these networks and to enhance user mobility. This is intrinsically difficult due to the size and number of different network nodes and users. This book highlights some examples which show how this problem can be overcome with the use of different techniques. An intensive parameter analysis shows the reader how to the exploit analytical models for an effective development and management of different types of wireless networks.

This book brings together scientific evidence and experience relevant to the practical conservation of bats. The authors worked with an international group of bat experts and conservationists to develop a global list of interventions that could benefit bats.For each intervention, the book summarises studies captured by the Conservation Evidence project, where that intervention has been tested and its effects on bats quantified. The result is a thorough guide to what is known, or not known, about the effectiveness of bat conservation actions throughout the world.Bat Conservation is the fifth in a series of Synopses that will cover different species groups and habitats, gradually building into a comprehensive summary of evidence on the effects of conservation interventions for all biodiversity throughout the world.By making evidence accessible in this way, we hope to enable a change in the practice of conservation, so it can become more evidence-based. We also aim to highlight where there are gaps in knowledge.Evidence from all around the world is included. If there appears to be a bias towards evidence from northern European or North American temperate environments, this reflects a current bias in the published research that is available to us. Conservation interventions are grouped primarily according to the relevant direct threats, as defined in the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN)'s Unified Classification of Direct Threats (www.iucnredlist.org/t...

The third in a trilogy of global overviews of conservation of diverse and ecologically important insect groups. The first two were Beetles in Conservation (2010) and Hymenoptera and Conservation (2012). Each has different priorities and emphases that collectively summarise much of the progress and purpose of invertebrate conservation. Much of the foundation of insect conservation has been built on concerns for Lepidoptera, particularly butterflies as the most popular and best studied of all insect groups. The long-accepted worth of butterflies for conservation has led to elucidation of much of the current rationale of insect species conservation, and to definition and management of their critical resources, with attention to the intensively documented British fauna ‘leading the world’ in this endeavour. In Lepidoptera and Conservation, various themes are treated through relevant examples and case histories, and sufficient background given to enable non-specialist access. Intended for not only entomologists but conservation managers and naturalists due to its readable approach to the subject.

The book provides students and conservation practitioners with a framework for thoughtful, critical thinking in order to incite innovation in the 21st century. «Marine Conservation presents a scholarly but eminently readable case for the necessity of a systems approach to conserving the oceans, combining superb introductions to the science, law and policy frameworks with carefully chosen case studies. This superb volume is a must for anyone interested in marine conservation, from students and practitioners to lay readers and policy-makers.» —Simon Levin, George M. Moffett Professor of Biology, Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University

Following the much acclaimed success of the first volume of Key Topics in Conservation Biology, this entirely new second volume addresses an innovative array of key topics in contemporary conservation biology. Written by an internationally renowned team of authors, Key Topics in Conservation Biology 2 adds to the still topical foundations laid in the first volume (published in 2007) by exploring a further 25 cutting-edge issues in modern biodiversity conservation, including controversial subjects such as setting conservation priorities, balancing the focus on species and ecosystems, and financial mechanisms to value biodiversity and pay for its conservation. Other chapters, setting the framework for conservation, address the sociology and philosophy of peoples’ relation with Nature and its impact on health, and such challenging practical issues as wildlife trade and conflict between people and carnivores. As a new development, this second volume of Key Topics includes chapters on major ecosystems, such as forests, islands and both fresh and marine waters, along with case studies of the conservation of major taxa: plants, butterflies, birds and mammals. A further selection of topics consider how to safeguard the future through monitoring, reserve planning, corridors and connectivity, together with approaches to reintroduction and re-wilding, along with managing wildlife disease. A final chapter, by the editors, synthesises thinking on the relationship between biodiversity conservation and human development. Each topic is explored by a team of top international experts, assembled to bring their own cross-cutting knowledge to a penetrating synthesis of the issues from both theoretical and practical perspectives. The interdisciplinary nature of biodiversity conservation is reflected throughout the book. Each essay examines the fundamental principles of the topic, the methodologies involved and, crucially, the human dimension. In this way, Key Topics in Conservation Biology 2, like its sister volume, Key Topics in Conservation Biology, embraces issues from cutting-edge ecological science to policy, environmental economics, governance, ethics, and the practical issues of implementation. Key Topics in Conservation Biology 2 will, like its sister volume, be a valuable resource in universities and colleges, government departments, and conservation agencies. It is aimed particularly at senior undergraduate and graduate students in conservation biology and wildlife management and wider ecological and environmental subjects, and those taking Masters degrees in any field relevant to conservation and the environment. Conservation practitioners, policy-makers, and the wider general public eager to understand more about important environmental issues will also find this book invaluable.
