Taschenbuch. Neuware - Yoga has become increasingly popular worldwide. The annual turnover from yoga business in USA alone has increased to 10 billion dollars in 2015. Yoga has eight critical components that include ethics, self-discipline, physical posture, breath control, sensory transcendence, mental focus, meditation and the final state of ecstasy. But, yoga seekers are attracted more towards the easier part of exercise and thus yoga has mushroomed as an economic enterprise endorsing wellness. India's sages have practiced yoga over millennia. I continue my journey in those revered footsteps. Intrinsically, the essence of yoga to me is nothing but observing the arising mental thoughts so that follow-up actions result in purity-propelled excellence ensuing simplified life with nature. In this book, I have synthesized all about what nature and yoga means to me as a naturalist. By the way, yoga is an integral part of nature. Nature as such is complex as the world itself. When I internalize the yoga way of life with nature, I have become eternally free. 88 pp. Englisch. Neu. Artikel-Nr.: 9783330335714.

Taschenbuch. Neuware - The Proboscis monkey is a fascinating primate and it is found only on the tropical island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. The wild populations are often restricted to coastal rainforest, mangrove forest and riverine forest. They feed on the naturally-occurring leaves and fruits from the forest. Little is know about their population dynamics, ecology and social behavior. Besides, it is not all that easy to keep them alive in captivity due to their specialized leafy diet. Only a few zoos in Asia display these rare monkeys. The author, an international primatologist with three decades of field research experience, has studied these amazing monkeys, both in the wild (in-situ) and in captivity (ex-situ). In this monograph, the author has synthesized his scientific research on proboscis monkeys in the wild and in zoo setting with details on population, ecology, behavior, conservation and management. Therefore this monograph should serve as an introductory and reference text on primatology and animal behavior related courses in colleges, universities and institutes of higher learning globally. 116 pp. Englisch.
