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

GOLLANCZ,Apr 2014
ISBN 9781473201699

NEU 198 x 129 x 17 mm

While on a boating holiday, Scott Carey is exposed to a cloud of radioactive spray. A few weeks later, following a series of medical examinations, he can no longer deny the extraordinary truth. Not only is he losing weight, he is also shorter than he was. Scott Carey has begun to shrink. Richard Matheson's novel follows through its premise with remorseless logic, with Carey first attempting to continue some kind of normal life and later having left human contact behind, having to survive in a world where insects and spiders are giant adversaries. And even that is only a stage on his journey into the unknown.

Insectopedia - Hugh Raffles
Hugh Raffles
VINTAGE BOOKS,Mrz 2011
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.

Oxygen - Nick Lane
Nick Lane
Oxford University Press,Sep 2003
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.

James L. Gould
UK Basic Books 2007
ISBN 0465027822

Condition good, clean. ref ZKVQ From two of the world's most distinguished experts in animal behaviour, this book offers a radical, creative, and accessible new approach to understanding animal minds through the structures they build. Animal behaviour has long been a battleground between the competing claims of nature and nurture, with the possible role of cognition in behaviour as a recent addition to this debate. There is an untapped trove of behavioural data that can tell us a great deal about how the animals draw from these neural strategies: the structures animals build provide a superb window on the workings of the animal mind. "Building Minds" examines animal architecture across a range of species, from those whose blueprints are largely innate (such as spiders and their webs) to those whose challenging structures seem to require intellectual insight, planning, and even aesthetics (such as birds' nests, or beavers' dams). Beginning with instinct and the simple homes of solitary insects, James and Carol Gould move on to conditioning; the "cognitive map" and how it evolved; and the role of planning and insight. Finally, they reflect on what animal building tells us about the nature of human intelligence - showing why humans, unlike many animals, need to build their castles in the air. Review "(t)he amazing animals feats recorded in this book may have presaged our own emergence as master builders." -- The Daily Mail, April 13th 2007 "(t)he amazing animals feats recorded in this book may have presaged our own emergence as master builders." -- The Daily Mail, April 13th 2007 "(t)his book is enhanced by elegantly simple line drawings and is packed with seductive descriptions of which animals build what, and why." -- BBC Focus, April 2007 "(t)his book is enhanced by elegantly simple line drawings and is packed with seductive descriptions of which animals build what, and why." -- BBC Focus Magazine, April 2007 "The story of this amazing and beautifully written little book is one of humans very gradually, and only through gritted teeth, admitting that other animals, down to the apparantly humblest insects, are more intelligent than was ever suspected." -- The Guardian, April 14th 2007 "The story of this amazing and beautifully written little book is one of humans very gradually, and only through gritted teeth, admitting that other animals, down to the apparantly humblest insects, are more intelligent than was ever suspected." -- The Guardian, April 14th 2007 "Two experts in animal behaviour explore the structures animals build, providing a radical new model for understanding animal minds. The complexity of many of these structures, and the evident capacity of their builders for forward thinking, adaptability, improvisation and even aesthetic appreciation, raise potentially troubling questions about the supposed gulf between human and animal intelligence." -- The London Review of Books, May 2007 "a challenging new study...Animal Architects is not so much an exploration of gee-whiz wonders of the things that animals make, but an investigation into the mental processes required to make them". -- The Times, April 2007 "a notable achievment... highly readable... Animal constructions are fascinating, and the authors provide some useful insights into them." -- Nature, April 12th 2007 "a notable achievment... highly readable... Animal constructions are fascinating, and the authors provide some useful insights into them." -- Nature, April 12th 2007 From the Inside Flap "In Animal Architects, James R Gould and Carol Grant Gould beautifully describe some of the architectural wonders of the animal kingdom...there is no doubt that the Goulds succeed in ... captivating the reader with their enthusiasm and encyclopaedic knowledge of the biology of building."

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

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.
