The Real Chimpanzee: Sex Strategies in the Forest

Christophe Boesch, "The Real Chimpanzee: Sex Strategies in the Forest"
Cambridge University Press | 2009-08-31 | ISBN: 0521110084, 0521125138 | 196 pages | PDF | 1,8 MBThe Real Chimpanzee encapsulates the fascinating behaviour of wild chimpanzees and discusses the differences observed in different populations across the species, and across the many levels of their social behaviour. It explains why sex competition and predation pressures in a forest chimpanzee population made the females of the group highly social and gave the males a high level of within-group solidarity, making them very xenophobic towards outsiders. Love is what makes war possible. Christophe Boesch brings back to the table the debate over ecological pressures and social organization, and the influence they have over issues such as the evolution of warfare, co-operation, altruism and the position of females. Written in an accessible style for a general audience as well as for undergraduate and graduate students, he presents insightful views to give readers the background information to understand the struggle for survival of our closest living relative, the chimpanzee, and through this to find some keys to the ever-so-intriguing question of what makes us human.

Population Genetics for Animal Conservation

Giorgio Bertorelle, Michael W. Bruford, Heidi C. Hauffe, Annapaolo Rizzoli, Cristiano Vernesi, "Population Genetics for Animal Conservation"
Cambridge University Press | 2009-06-22 | ISBN: 0521866308, 0521685370 | 410 pages | PDF | 2,9 MBIt is widely accepted among conservation biologists that genetics is, more than ever, an essential and efficient tool for wild and captive population management and reserve design. However, a true synergy between population genetics and conservation biology is lacking. Following the first International Workshop on Population Genetics for Animal Conservation in 2003, the scientific committee felt that, given the global urgency of animal conservation, it was imperative that discussions at the conference were made accessible to graduate students and wildlife managers. This book integrates 'the analytical methods approach' with the 'real problems approach' in conservation genetics. Each chapter is an exhaustive review of one area of expertise, and a special effort has been made to explain the statistical tools available for the analysis of molecular data as clearly as possible. The result is a comprehensive volume of the state-of-the-art in conservation genetics, illustrating the power and utility of this synergy.

Pavlov's Dogs and Schrdinger's Cat: Scenes from the living laboratory

Rom Harre, "Pavlov's Dogs and Schr?¶dinger's Cat: Scenes from the living laboratory"
Oxford University Press, USA | 2009-03-15 | ISBN: 0199238561 | 288 pages | PDF | 1,6 MBFrom the sheep, dog, and cockerel that were sent aloft in Montgolfier's balloon to test the air over Paris, to the famous clone Dolly the Sheep and the Darwinian finches of the Galapagos, Pavlov's Dogs and Schrodinger's Cat offers a fascinating and enlightening look at the use of plants and animals--including humans--in scientific experiments. Rom Harre provides a fresh and fascinating perspective on research, setting aside moral reflection to simply examine the history of how and why living creatures have been used for the purposes of discovery. Ranging over five centuries, the book uncovers many extraordinary stories, including tales of the people involved, to many curious incidents and episodes, and the occasional scientific fraud. From Gregor Mendel's use of pea plants to explore heredity, to Barry Marshall's used of himself as the experimental animal in his helicobacter experiments (he survived) and even the use of an imaginary cat in Schrodinger's famous thought experiment, the reader discovers a perspective on scientific work he or she has never encountered before.

Endangered Species (3 Volume Set)

"Endangered Species (3 Volume Set)" by Sonia Benson and Rob Nagel
U X L | 840 pages | English | 2003 | ISBN: 0787676187 | PDF | 55,4 + 62,0 + 50,3 MBThis guide to endangered species worldwide is highly selective, describing 700 animals and plants of the many thousands that are threatened with extinction. The species have been selected from lists compiled by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), and IUCN-the World Conservation Union. Animal entries are arranged by species and then by family and genus; there is a separate section for plants. Entries are listed by common name, followed by scientific name. A shaded box contains phylum, class, order, and family; the status of the animal or plant on the lists of any of the three organizations; and geographic range. Essays provide a physical description, breeding and habitat information, and conservation efforts and survival outlook for the species. These entries are one to two pages in length. A small black-and-white photograph is provided for about half the entries; some of these photographs have been too tightly cropped, cutting off the animal's horns or its tail. Supplementary material consists of lists of extinct species and of wildlife and conservation organizations, a bibliography arranged by species, and a series of simple black-and-white maps of regions of the world. The geographic index shows that there is good representation of animals from all parts of the world. American species are listed both under U.S.A. and specific states. The index lists both popular and scientific names.Contents:Volume I: MammalsVolume II: Arachnids, Birds, Crustaceans, Insects, and MollusksVolume III: Amphibians, Fish, Plants, and Reptiles

Tiger

"Tiger" by Susie Green
R B-s | 224 pages | English | 2006 | ISBN: 1861892764 | PDF | 2,4 MBContrary to popular belief, it is the tiger, not the lion, who is the true king of the jungle. A male tiger can grow to eleven feet in length and weigh more than 650 pounds. Sleek, powerful, and mysterious, the tiger is revered as a potent symbol of sexuality and ferocity in many cultures around the world. Yet the tiger??™s strength and beauty has also been its downfall??”nearly every part of the tiger has a value to poachers, including the animal??™s hide, teeth, bones, and even sexual organs. With Tiger, author Susie Green explores the tiger??™s new status as both predator and prey. She also examines the tiger??™s rich cultural history, from its valued position in Taoist mythology and the Chinese Zodiac, to more recent interpretations of the tiger??™s prowess in the work of Salvador Dal?­. Smart, readable, and lushly illustrated, Tiger will appeal to the wide audience that admires this wonderfully vital yet highly endangered species.
