NEUBUCH! 241x164x38 mm

This timely book revisits cryptic female choice in arthropods, gathering detailed contributions from around the world to address key behavioral, ecological and evolutionary questions. The reader will find a critical summary of major breakthroughs in taxon-oriented chapters that offer many new perspectives and cases to explore and in many cases unpublished data. Many groups of arthropods such as spiders, harvestmen, flies, moths, crickets, earwigs, beetles, eusocial insects, shrimp and crabs are discussed. Sexual selection is currently the focus of numerous and controversial theoretical and experimental studies. Selection in mating and post-mating patterns can be shaped by several different mechanisms, including sperm competition, extreme sexual conflict and cryptic female choice. Discrimination among males during or after copulation is called cryptic female choice because it occurs after intromission, the event that was formerly used as the definitive criterion of male reproductive success and is therefore usually difficult to detect and confirm. Because it sequentially follows intra- and intersexual interactions that occur before copulation, cryptic female choice has the power to alter or negate precopulatory sexual selection. However, though female roles in biasing male paternity after copulation have been proposed for a number of species distributed in many animal groups, cryptic female choice continues to be often underestimated. Furthermore, in recent years the concept of sexual conflict has been frequently misused, linking sexual selection by female choice irrevocably and exclusively with sexually antagonistic co-evolution, without exploring other alternatives. The book offers an essential source of information on how two fields, selective cooperation and individual sex interests, work together in the context of cryptic female choice in nature, using arthropods as model organisms. It is bound to spark valuable discussions among scientists working in evolutionary biology across the world, motivating new generations to unveil the astonishing secrets of sexual biology throughout the animal kingdom.

Mental Zoo: Animals in the Human Mind and Its Pathology - Salman Akhtar
Salman Akhtar
KARNAC BOOKS,Mrz 2014
ISBN 9781782201670

NEUBUCH! 230x147x27 mm; Revised.

'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

Insectopedia - Hugh Raffles
Hugh Raffles
VINTAGE BOOKS,201103
ISBN 9781400096961

NEUBUCH! 203x132x24 mm

Sie waren vor uns da und werden uns überleben. Sie begleiten uns seit Menschengedenken, so nah und alltäglich wie keine anderen Lebewesen: Insekten bestäuben unsere Nutzpflanzen, ernähren sich von unserem Essen, leben in unseren Betten und Kleidungsstücken, in den Ritzen unserer Dielen und dem Fell unserer Haustiere. Grund genug, sich endlich diesen fremdartigen, beinahe unsichtbaren Lebensbegleitern zu widmen. Der Anthropologe Hugh Raffles erzählt die faszinierende Geschichte der langen und engen Beziehung, die uns mit diesen kleinen, wunderbaren und erstaunlich vollendeten Wesen verbindet. Seine Insektopädie ist ein fesselnder Streifzug durch Wissenschaft und Philosophie, Anthropologie und Zoologie, Wirtschaft und Populärkultur, auf dem nicht nur die Insekten, sondern auch die Menschen genau unter die Lupe genommen werden A New York Times Notable Book A stunningly original exploration of the ties that bind us to the beautiful, ancient, astoundingly accomplished, largely unknown, and unfathomably different species with whom we share the world. For as long as humans have existed, insects have been our constant companions. Yet we hardly know them, not even the ones we're closest to: those that eat our food, share our beds, and live in our homes. Organizing his book alphabetically, Hugh Raffles weaves together brief vignettes, meditations, and extended essays, taking the reader on a mesmerizing exploration of history and science, anthropology and travel, economics, philosophy, and popular culture. Insectopedia shows us how insects have triggered our obsessions, stirred our passions, and beguiled our imaginations.

Systematics and Ecology of Spiders (Aranae : Arachnida) in Rice Land - Bindra Bihari Singh
Bindra Bihari Singh
LAP Lambert Academic Publishing,Sep 2012
ISBN 9783659253140

NEUBUCH! 220x150x24 mm

Spiders are potential predators of insects feeding on rice and help in maintaining their population under check. Before this study, no work was carried out about the systematic and diversity of spiders in rice land ecosystem in Northeastern Uttar Pradesh (NEUP). The survey conducted in four district of Gorakhpur Division, viz. Kushinagar, Maharajganj, Gorakhpur and Deoria reveales the presence of 58 species of spiders under 28 genera in 10 families. The book incorporates detail illustrative account, morphological descriptions and morphometry of each spider species with necessary keys for their identification; provides information on their distributional patterns derived from rice-fields located at different places in NEUP; and also deals with their population guilds (e.g., orb weabers, ground runners, stalkers, foliage runners, and ambusers). We hope this book will be helpful as a base for future investigations in the field of systematics and ecology of rice-land spiders in other parts of the world. It will also prove a useful addition to the libraries and to the large section of researchers interested in biosystematics and ecology of spiders, and plant protection.

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.

Oxygen - Nick Lane
Nick Lane
Oxford University Press,200309
ISBN 9780198607830

NEUBUCH! 198x131x24 mm

Oxygen has had extraordinary effects on life. Three hundred million years ago, in Carboniferous times, dragonflies grew as big as seagulls, with wingspans of nearly a metre. Researchers claim they could have flown only if the air had contained more oxygen than today - probably as much as 35 per cent. Giant spiders, tree-ferns, marine rock formations and fossil charcoals all tell the same story. High oxygen levels may also explain the global firestorm that contributed to the demise of the dinosaurs after the asteroid impact. The strange and profound effects that oxygen has had on the evolution of life pose a riddle, which this book sets out to answer. Oxygen is a toxic gas. Divers breathing pure oxygen at depth suffer from convulsions and lung injury. Fruit flies raised at twice normal atmospheric levels of oxygen live half as long as their siblings. Reactive forms of oxygen, known as free radicals, are thought to cause ageing in people. Yet if atmospheric oxygen reached 35 per cent in the Carboniferous, why did it promote exuberant growth, instead of rapid ageing and death Oxygen takes the reader on an enthralling journey, as gripping as a thriller, as it unravels the unexpected ways in which oxygen spurred the evolution of life and death. The book explains far more than the size of ancient insects: it shows how oxygen underpins the origin of biological complexity, the birth of photosynthesis, the sudden evolution of animals, the need for two sexes, the accelerated ageing of cloned animals like Dolly the sheep, and the surprisingly long lives of bats and birds. Drawing on this grand evolutionary canvas, Oxygen offers fresh perspectives on our own lives and deaths, explaining modern killer diseases, why we age, and what we can do about it. Advancing revelatory new ideas, following chains of evidence, the book ranges through many disciplines, from environmental sciences to molecular medicine. The result is a captivating vision of contemporary science and a humane synthesis of our place in nature. This remarkable book will redefine the way we think about the world.
