Agriculture to Zoology: Information Literacy in the Life Sciences sets the stage for purposefully integrating information literacy activities within the subject-specific content of the life sciences. The book is written for librarians and other professionals who teach information literacy skills, especially those in the science disciplines, and most especially the life sciences. It is also intended to be helpful to secondary school teachers, college faculty who teach life science-related subjects, library school students, and others interested in information literacy and science education. Anyone wanting to learn more about the Earth’s life sciences, from citizen to scientist, will benefit as well. The book’s seven chapters fill a gap with varying perspectives of literacy instruction in the life sciences and include resources identified by academic librarians as important for use in subject-specific research in higher education. Contributors are longtime specialists in the fields of the life sciences, science and information literacy, scientific and electronic communication, assessment, and more, including Arctic and Antarctic information. Specialized focus on information literacy in the life science disciplines, rather than information literacy in general Discussion of library instruction, featuring methods, tools, and assignments to engage students in different areas of the life sciences Chapters on specific life science subjects highlight traditional as well as non-traditional sources

The Book Is A Practical And Scientific Text Most Useful In The Teaching Of Biology. It Lays Special Emphasis On Some Of The All Important Economic Phases Of The Animal And Plant Worlds. The Book Also Attempts To Guide In The Matter Of Controlling Some Of The More Common Pests And Diseases. The Book Has Emerged Out Of The Author S Practical Experience In Teaching Biology And Hence, Keeping In Mind The Shortcomings Normally Observed In This Sphere, Attempt Has Been Made In The Text, To Arouse In The Reader, An Interest In Some Of The Sciences That Have A Close Bearing On Agriculture And Which Are, Therefore, Closely Relating To Some Of The Most Important Problems Concerning Human Welfare. The Sciences Of Zoology, Entomology, Botany, Plant Pathology, Bacteriology And Pomology, Each Of Which Is Important In Its Relation To The Broader And All-Inclusive Subject Of Biology, Deal With Fundamental Facts That Are Of Interest To Every Student. Some Of These Facts Might Not Have Been Given Their Proper Evaluation As A Part Of One S Education Which Gap Is Attempted To Be Bridged By This Work. A Few Good Suggestions That May Be Of Interest To The Teacher Have Been Made At The End Of The Various Chapters. While The Emphasis Is That Much More Can Be Accomplished In Outdoor Observations, Experiments Etc Than In The Classroom Laboratory Experiments The Book Will Lend Itself Well With Any Good Laboratory Manual. The Book Is A Worthwhile Addition To The Treasure Of Teachers As Well As Students Alike.

Virtually no subject—politics, slavery, religion, gardening, music, architecture, natural history, or science to name a few—escaped the interest and attention of Thomas Jefferson. Through nearly 800 excerpts of Jefferson's writing, ranging in length from one sentence to nearly a page, Thomas Jefferson: A Chronology of His Thoughts, allows readers to share in Jefferson's greatest triumphs and achievements and reflects on the moments that truly tested the very fiber of his soul, publicly and privately. From the glory of crafting the Declaration of Independence and assuming the mantle of leadership as the Republic's third president, through his moral struggle with slavery and the agony of losing his young wife and daughter, Jerry Holmes chronicles Jefferson's life through his own words. Thomas Jefferson: A Chronology of His Thoughts will fascinate both the serious Jefferson scholar as well as curious newcomers.

Wrestling with Tragedy on the Fiscal Commons

This timely book reveals that the budget deficits and accumulating debts that plague modern democracies reflect a clash between two rationalities of governance: one of private property and one of common property. The clashing of these rationalities at various places in society creates forms of societal tectonics that play out through budgeting. The book demonstrates that while this clash is an inherent feature of democratic political economy, it can nonetheless be limited through embracing once again a constitution of liberty. Not all commons settings have tragic outcomes, of course, but tragic outcomes loom large in democratic processes because they entail conflict between two very different forms of substantive rationality; the political and market rationalities. These are both orders that contain interactions among participants, but the institutional frameworks that govern those interactions differ, generating democratic budgetary tragedies. Those tragedies, moreover, are inherent in the conflict between the different rationalities and so cannot be eliminated. They can, as this book argues, be reduced by restoring a constitution of liberty in place of the constitution of control that has taken shape throughout the west over the past century. Economists interested in public finance, public policy and political economy along with scholars of political science, public administration, law and political philosophy will find this book intriguing.

Agricultural English is a collection of essays on the English of Agriculture. The approach is a linguistic one: the different aspects of the English used in the field of agriculture (agricultural practices, agricultural systems) and in some fields related to agriculture (agricultural zoology, agri-tourism, biology, botany, ecology, entomology, gastronomy, land measurement, plant pathology, zoology) are analysed from a morphological (combination, derivation), syntactical (nominal phrases, verbal phrases), lexical and lexicographical, semantic (homonymy, semantic fields, synonymy, terminology), pragmatic (academic discourse, idiom, metaphor), etymological (etymon, Latin heritage), and contrastive (English–Croatian, English–French, English–German, English–Romanian, Romanian–English) points of view. The book will appeal to agriculturists, animal breeders, professors, researchers, students, and translators from Croatian-, English-, French-, German-, and Romanian-speaking countries, active in their own countries or abroad. The types of academic readership it would appeal to include academic teaching staff, researchers and students in the fields of agriculture and related fields – agricultural zoology, agri-tourism, biology, botany, ecology, entomology, gastronomy, land measurement, plant pathology, and zoology.

One of our greatest writers about the sea has written an engrossing story of one of history's most legendary maritime explorers. Patrick O'Brian's biography of naturalist, explorer and co-founder of Australia, Joseph Banks, is narrative history at its finest. Published to rave reviews, it reveals Banks to be a man of enduring importance, and establishes itself as a classic of exploration. "It is in his description of that arduous three-year voyage [on the ship Endeavor] that Mr. O'Brian is at his most brilliant. . . . He makes us understand what life within this wooden world was like, with its 94 male souls, two dogs, a cat and a goat."—Linda Colley, New York Times "An absorbing, finely written overview, meant for the general reader, of a major figure in the history of natural science."—Frank Stewart, Los Angeles Times "[This book is] the definitive biography of an extraordinary subject."—Robert Taylor, Boston Globe "His skill at narrative and his extensive knowledge of the maritime history . . . give him a definite leg up in telling this . . . story."—Tom Clark, San Francisco Chronicle

What does Christianity have to do with anything? What does the Christian faith teach about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit? What do I need to know about angels, Satan and demons? What place should the Bible or a church have in my life? By exploring these and other core questions, bestselling author Paul E. Little leads you into a greater appreciation of a God who has done great things to bring you into a relationship with him through Jesus Christ. He presents ten bottom-line, non-negotiable truths of Christianity using humorous, anecdotal illustrations gathered from years of experience helping believers share their faith with not-yet Christians. Expanded and updated throughout by Paul's wife Marie, this contemporary edition is packed with illuminating answers to questions and misconceptions about the Christian faith, with study questions for each chapter.

In times of tight materials budgets, steeply rising prices, and rapidly expanding information formats, library professionals will appreciate the valuable insights into acquisitions processes and management of material costs that are offered in this practical new book. Respected librarians and vendor representatives contributed to this volume--the published proceedings of a recent conference held at the University of Oklahoma. These experts examine approval plans, including a new approach for the publisher-based plan; the impact of inflation, including the increasing costs of titles in selected subject disciplines, causes for the costs, and ramifications for libraries and suppliers; and the process of materials budgeting from the collection of data to the justification of the budget. With increasing demands on librarians to find better budget management strategies and to develop more effective material acquisition processes, an environment has evolved in which librarians and book vendors are forced to examine their methods of acquiring and supplying materials to libraries. Acquisitions, Budgets, and Material Costs: Issues and Approaches provides librarians with readily applicable solutions to today’s acquisition problems.

Bereits ein Jahr nach seinem grundlegenden Werk „Die Abstammung des Menschen und die geschlechtliche Zuchtwahl“ in dem Darwin seine Evolutionstheorie des Menschen erläuterte, erschien sein „Der Ausdruck der Gemütsbewegungen beim Menschen und den Tieren“, dass hiermit erstmals als E-Book in deutscher Sprache erscheint. In diesem Werk legt Darwin dar, dass auch die Gefühle und deren Ausdrucksweise sich bei Mensch und Tieren gleichen und wie äußere Merkmale durch Evolution entstanden sind. Er untersuchte unter anderem, ob die Art und Weise, wie die Aktivität der Gesichtsmuskeln des Menschen – die Mimik – seine Emotionen sichtbar macht, durch Lernen erworben oder vermutlich angeboren sei. Auch wies er auf zahlreiche Parallelen beim Ausdrucksverhalten von Mensch und Tier hin und deutete diese Übereinstimmungen als Stütze für seine Theorie einer Abstammung des Menschen und der Tiere von gemeinsamen Vorfahren. Seine Argumentation war von Beginn an umstritten, und sein Buch geriet für Jahrzehnte sogar nahezu in Vergessenheit. Wenige Monate nach Erscheinen wurden bereits 9000 Exemplare berkauift, danach geriet der Absatz jedoch ins Stocken. Eine zweite verbesserte Auflage wurde später kaum beachtet. In diesem Buch finden sich viele Beobachtungen und Erklärungen, die auch nach heutigem wissenschaftlichen Kenntnisstand zutreffend sind; andere sind völlig irrig; und es gibt einige über die sich die Wissenschaft bis heute streitet. Bereits im Jahr der englischen Erstausgabe erschien eine Übersetzung des deutschen Zoologen Victor Carus, die Grundlage dieses E-Book ist. Diese Übersetzung wurde modernisiert und in die neue deutsche Rechtschreibung übertragen.
