The Wonder World of Ants - Wilfrid S. Bronson
Wilfrid S. Bronson
Sunstone Press,Sep 2008
ISBN 9780865346918

NEUBUCH! 254x178x5 mm

In many surprising ways ants are like people: both are the only animals who have nations, governments, working people and armies. Reading about the habits and customs of ants is like following the adventures of an explorer in a new and fascinating land. In this book the author, who is well known for his interesting stories of science, takes us into this wonder world of ants and describes the different kinds of ants from the familiar kinds which can be found in any field to the devastating army ants of Africa. There are the hunter ants that grow their own vegetables, the thief ants and the slave-making ants who kidnap the children of other tribes. As in Sunstone's other books by Wilfrid Bronson, the text in this book for young readers is in large, clear type, and there are many illustrations on each page. Wilfrid Swancourt Bronson wrote his first book at the age of eight. Called 'Animal People,' it started like this: 'This book is for children who are interested in animals and birds. It has verey good pictures in it and children can understand it verey easily.' He later learned to spell, and wrote and illustrated over twenty books for children with 'verey good pictures' that they could understand. Young readers everywhere are glad he did.

NEUBUCH! 229x152x19 mm

In a series of 'blog-like' sound-bites, Underwear or Socks An Overland Odyssey tells the story of a journey that starts in Turkey and covers more than 40,000 kilometres to end in Australia. Travel with the author as he scales the slopes of the highest mountain in the world; endures 50-degree heat and 90-percent humidity; stands face to face with a wild tiger; descends into an underground city; flies across a barren landscape in a hot-air balloon; skis the slopes of a volcano; battles stinging insects, spiders, snakes and rats; camps out in desert storms; fords flooding rivers; and swims with crocodiles. Viewed through the wide and often incredulous eyes of an armchair traveler finally 'doing it for real', it turns out that the world really is a weird, wonderful and often very amusing place. About the Author: When he is not finding ways to make his life more interesting, Alan Lush is an IT consultant in England. Publisher's website: SBPRA.com/AlanLush

Lillian Elizabeth Roy
Evertype,Dez 2012
ISBN 9781782010180

NEUBUCH! 216x140x7 mm; 12002, 2. Auflage.

Little Alice Wells is exploring her garden when she spies Bombus, a bumblebee, and follows him to overhear him conversing with Madam Zumm and a young bee named Buzz. They give her a special nectar which enables her to enter the Bee world, where she learns much about Bees and their life and society. Lillian Elizabeth Roy was born Lillian Elizabeth Becker in 1868 and died in 1932. She is best-known for her 'Polly Brewster' series of books, published between 1922 and 1930, an interesting series about a strong-headed girl who early on declaims on the rights of women, before heading out on many adventures around the world. Alice in Beeland was published in 1919. Julia Greene illustrated a number of books beginning in 1917, including a special edition of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with Cut-Out Pictures'. Later in her career (1918 through 1932) she illustrated the fourteen volumes of the 'Curlytop' series by Howard R. Garis, who was most famous for his 'Uncle Wiggily' series.

Weiss, Karl:
New York, NY, U.S.A. Springer-Verlag New York, Incorporated, 2002.
ISBN 0387952527

Gebunden

Zustand: Schlecht, VIII, 163 p. 24 illus. About this book The more we learn about bees, the more extraordinary they seem. They have five eyes. Their fertilized eggs hatch as females; unfertilized eggs become males. They beat their wings at a rate of almost 200 cycles per second, but fly at only 10 or 15 miles per hour. In the course of a lifetime, a typical worker bee will produce less than a tenth of a teaspoon of honey, yet a single hive's population can produce as much as 2 pounds of honey a day. A queen bee, in a single day, will lay her weight in eggs - as many as 1,500 in an uninterrupted 24-hour period. And to communicate with each other bees do make sounds, but mostly they dance in order to share information on the distance and direction to the nearest food source. This book provides the newcomer a first view into the extraordinary and surprisingly complex and highly organized world of bees. The book describes their evolution, and explains the differences between wild bees and honey-bees. It also sheds light on bee society, with its amazing rituals related to work, reproduction, defense of the hive, and most amazingly, communication. The author also explains the critical role that bees and beekeeping play for human society, and offers advice for those interested in raising bees themselves. Dr. Karl Weiss is an entomologist and the director of the Bavarian Institution for Beekeeping at Erlangen, Germany. He is engaged in theoretical as well as applied apicultural research. Weiss is the author of numerous scientific and popular publications on bees and is considered one of Germany's foremost authorities on apiculture. Written for general readers ISBN 0387952527

The Influences of Grazers in Biodiversity of Insects - Kathrin Müller-Rees
Kathrin Müller-Rees
GRIN Verlag GmbH,Sep 2013
ISBN 9783656289135

NEUBUCH! 210x148x1 mm

Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Biology - Miscellaneous, printed single-sided, grade: 2,7, Wageningen University (Fundamental and Applied Biology of Insects), course: Fundamental and Applied Biology of Insects, language: English, abstract: Grassland in Europe and other parts of our world offers many animals an appreciable biotope. Not only insects also spiders adopt this specific vegetation influenced by dry and poor soil as their habitat. In Europe the grassland disappears more and more. Many of these areas were under farmers hands and are left fallow nowadays. After a certain period it will happen that bigger herbals such as trees and bushes obtain the fallow area.In this essay a certain study case made from the Swedish University of Agricultural Science will show how grazers influence the diversity of insects. Grazers such as cattle, sheep and horses are introduced as mowing animals with the goal to avoid the growth of larger plants as trees and bushes.

The Life of the Bee - Maurice Maeterlinck
Maurice Maeterlinck
Cosimo Classics,Sep 2004
ISBN 9781596050396

NEUBUCH! 203x127x25 mm

When Maurice Maeterlinck, with a poet's sensibility and sensitivity, turned his attention to a bee hive, his observations turned into a masterpiece. In 'The Life of the Bee', Maeterlinck illuminates the whole life and society of the bee, from the structure of the hive, to the movement and meaning of the swarm, to the role and activity of the queen. 'The Life of the Bee' is for all readers curious about a brilliant thinker's mediation on a force of nature that, ultimately, holds lessons about the human race and our universe. Maurice Maeterlinck (1862-1949) won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1911. His plays, prose, and poems touched on philosophy, the natural world, and mysticism.

The book especially discusses the typical habits and "industry" of animals, the manner in which they catch their prey, build their nests, flee or fight for their lives, their cunning, games, etc. The animals are treated separately, first various mammals, starting with the fox, and including many rodents, the elephant, various monkeys, and ending with the mule. Not included are the larger wild animals, like a lion or tiger. Then the birds are treated, starting with the eagle, and discussing birds of nearly all species. Next some animals laying eggs are treated, including a turtle, crocodile, lizard, and some snakes. Then a few fishes are discussed, the sole, hermit crab, and a shell-fish. And finally the insects are treated, including ants, bees, caterpillars, spiders, etc. A special chapter on the moral of the works of nature is added, quoting the opinion of Fenelon, the poetry of Delille, the bird allegory of Chateaubriand, the idea of harmony in nature of Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, etc. Thus the author arrives at the physico-theological conclusion that knowledge of the works of nature will lead to a better appreciation of the works of the "Eternal". The engraved plates show lively scenes of nature with animals "at work", and are finely designed but the artist has remained anonymous.
Fine copy.

Mental Zoo

'Salman Akhtar and Vamik Volkan's dynamic book, Mental Zoo, takes the reader on a panoramic tour illuminating the rich world of animals in human experience. Here Freud's rats, wolves, and horses join our own cats and dogs to meet snakes, spiders, birds, and cockroaches. With an engaging blend of whimsy and erudition, the contributors describe the feelings, fantasies, dreams, nightmares, and delusions that animals evoke in us all. Detailed clinical examples capture the richness of the intrapsychic and interpersonal places that animals inhabit in our psyches. The book encompasses the role of animals not only in normal development and psychopathology, but also in history and mythology. Mental health professionals will listen to their patients with new sensitivities after Mental Zoo introduces them to this fascinating menagerie.'- Alex Hoffer, MD, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Training and Supervising Analyst, Psychoanalytic Institute of New England'This book, a psychoanalytic study of the role played by animals in the human mind, is a huge contribution to the understanding of a segment of mental life never before studied in such depth and focus. The results are spectacular. The subject matter, besides being immensely informative, is riveting. From the very dedication, in which the two editors remember their respective family's menagerie, including, a cat, dog, horse, cow, donkey, python, and pet tiger, it is apparent how much each author approaches his subject with reverence, awe, and love. This book, besides deepening the psychoanalytic situation, extends applied analysis to another level, from the inanimate to man's next of kin.The spectrum of animals studied, from rats to horses, dogs, cats and wolves, to birds, snakes, spiders and insects, is dazzling, provocative, and always thought-provoking. It is psychoanalytic, with each animal viewed from philia to phobia, from unconscious to conscious effects, thorough at every level. Each contribution resounds with its relevance to clinical work and to everyday observations. The scholarship is historical, prehistorical, even paleontological, and ranges over myths, religious worship, rituals, language, folklore, symbols, art, and always clinical data, from Freud's to our own with a special bounty to dreams and nightmares. Several of the chapters will be classics. The book as a whole is more than a compendium; it is an encyclopedia.'- Leo Rangell, MD, (1913-2011) psychoanalyst and clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California

The Life Of The Bee - Maurice Maeterlinck
Maurice Maeterlinck
Hesperides Press,Nov 2008
ISBN 9781443723671

NEUBUCH! 216x140x29 mm

THE LIFE OF THE BEE By Iht Same Contents include: I. ON THE THRESHOLD OF THE HIVE II. THE SWARM III. THE FOUNDATION OF THE CITY IV. THE LIFE OF THE BEE V. THE YOUNG QUEENS VI. THE NUPTIAL FLIGHT VII. THE MASSACRE OF THE MALES VIII. THE PROGRESS OF THE RACE. IT is not my intention to write a treatise on apiculture, or on practical beekeeping. Excellent works of the kind abound in all civilised countries, and it were useless to attempt another. France has those of Dadant, Georges de Lay ens and Bonnier, Bertrand, Hamet, Weber, Clement, the Abbe Collin, etc. Englishspeaking countries have Langs troth, Bevan, Cook, Cheshire, Cowan, Root, etc. Germany has Dzierzon, Van Berlespoch, Pollmann, Vogel, and many others. Nor is this book to be a scientific monograph on Apis Mellifica, Ligustica, Fasciata, Dorsata, etc., or a collection of new observations and studies. I shall say scarcely anything that those will not know who are somewhat familiar with bees. The notes and experiments I have made during my twenty years of bee keeping I shall reserve for a more techni cal work for their interest is necessarily of a special and limited nature, and I am anxious not to overburden this essay. I wish to speak of the bees very simply, as one speaks of a subject one knows and loves to those who know it not. I do not intend to adorn the truth, or merit the just reproach Reaumur addressed to his predecessors in the study of our honeyflies, whom he accused of substituting for the marvellous reality marvels that were imaginary and merely plausible. The fact that the hive contains so much that is wonderful does not warrant our seeking to add to its wonders. Besides, I myself have now for a long time ceased to look for anything more beautiful in this world, or more interesting, than the truth or at least than the effort one is able to make towards the truth. I shall state nothing, therefore, that I have not verified myself, or that is not so fully accepted in the textbooks as to render further verifica tion superfluous. My facts shall be as accurate as though they appeared in a practical manual or scientific monograph, but I shall relate them in a somewhat livelier fashion than such works would allow, shall group them more harmoni ously together, and blend them with freer and more mature reflections. The reader of this book will not learn there from how to manage a hive but he will know more or less all that can with any certainty be known of the curious, pro found, and intimate side of its inhabi tants. Nor will this be at the cost of what still remains to be learned. I shall pass over in silence the hoary traditions that, in the country and many a book, still constitute the legend of the hive. Whenever there be doubt, disagreement, hypothesis, when I arrive at the unknown, I shall declare it loyally you will find that we often shall halt before the un known. Beyond the appreciable facts of their life we know but little of the bees. And the closer our acquaintance becomes, the nearer is our ignorance brought to us of the depths of their real existence but such ignorance is better than the other kind, which is uncon scious, and satisfied. Does an analogous work on the bee exist
