  • Fugleperspektiv af Jette Varmer
    - Naturfortællinger i øjenhøjde
    af Jette Varmer

    I "Fugleperspektiv" inviterer bogens forfatter os med på en række fugle- og naturoplevelser i Danmark, Sverige, Norge og på Færøerne. Jette Varmer betragter sig selv som en glad amatør på det ornitologiske område. Hun er i øjenhøjde med sine læsere og væver et humoristisk islæt ind i sine personlige forællinger om fugle, natur og fuglefolk. Hendes underholdende historier er krydret med sagn, myter, folketro og fakta. Uanset om Jette Varmer beretter om svimlende fjeldsider på Færøerne eller stiller skarpt på vores hjemlige arter ved foderbrættet, bringer hun os en lille smule tættere på vores vingede medskabninger. Alt sammen fortalt enkelt og vedkommende, og naturligvis i fugleperspektiv. Bogen er første bind i serien 'Nordiske Naturfortællinger'.

  • Kan den prutte? af Dani Rabaiotti
    - Den ultimative feltguide til dyreflatulens
    af Dani Rabaiotti & Nick Caruso

    Hunde gør det. Tusindben gør det. Og dinosaurerne gjorde det. Du gør det. Blæksprutter gør det ikke. Måske gør edderkopper det, men det kræver mere forskning. Fugle gør det ikke, men de kunne, hvis de ville. Sild gør det, men kun for at kommunikere med hinanden. Denne bog er den ultimative guide til dyreflatulens, og du får al den viden, som du ikke vidste, du havde brug for om 80 meget forskellige dyrearter: Hvorfor lugter hyænens prutter ekstra fælt? Hvad er en fossa - og prutter den? Og hvad er en prut egentlig? Det svarer en række biologer på i denne videnskabelig, sober og vanvittig underholdende bog. Til læsere i alle aldre Dani Rabaiotto er zoolog. Nick Caruso er økolog og forsker.

  • Dyret i dit spejl af Bent Jørgensen
    af Bent Jørgensen

    Tidligere direktør for Københavns Zoo, Bent Jørgensen, skriver her menneskets slægtshistorie. Bogen handler om menneskets evolution fra det første spæde liv på jorden opstod for mindst 3.800 millioner år siden og frem til nutidsmennesket Homo sapiens, og han påviser, at vi bærer på en stor arv fra vore forfædre i utallige led. Gennem bogens 15 kapitler får man spændende indsigt i de evolutionære til- og fravalg, som naturen gennem tiden har gjort, og som har gjort mennesket til det, vi er i dag."Jørgensens skabelseshistorie er båret af et anekdotisk vid og fortælleglæde, der gør bogen uomgængelig. Ingen tvivl om, at Jørgensen med sin bog har bragt os et skridt nærmere vores udspring med smeltediglen i Afrika og vores geners hemmelighed deponeret i utallige kopulationer. En lystlæser af denne bakspejlsbog har absolut ikke lagt fremtiden bag sig."Niels Houkjær, Berlingske Tidende

    af Buck Brannaman

    "e;I've started horses since I was 12 years old and have been bit, kicked, bucked off and run over. I've tried every physical means to contain my horse in an effort to keep from getting myself killed. I started to realize that things would come much easier for me once I learned why a horse does what he does. This method works well for me because of the kinship that develops between horse and rider. "e; --Buck BrannamanIn THE FARAWAY HORSES, Brannaman shares his methods for training and provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Robert Redford's movie The Horse Whisperer, for which he was the technical advisor. *Authoratative figure in horsemanship*Reveals the key to understanding animalsBUCK BRANNAMAN is a horse gentler--not a horse "e;breaker"e;--who has started more than 10,000 young horses in his clinics.

  • Last Chance To See af DOUGLAS ADAMS
    af DOUGLAS ADAMS & Mark Carwardine

    'Douglas Adams' genius was in using comedy to make serious points about the world' IndependentAfter years of reflecting on the absurdities of life on other planets, Douglas Adams teamed up with zoologist Mark Carwardine to find out what was happening to life on this one. Together they lead us on an unforgettable journey across the world in search of exotic, endangered creatures - animals that they may never get another chance to see. They encounter the animal kingdom in its stunning beauty, astonishing variety, and imminent peril: the giant Komodo dragon of Indonesia, the helpless but lovable Kakapo of New Zealand, the blind river dolphins of China, the white rhinos of Zaire, the rare birds of Mauritius island in the Indian Ocean. Both funny and poignant, Last Chance to See is the tale of an unforgettable wildlife odyssey - and a timely reminder of all that we must protect.

    In August 2017, Alasdair Campbell stepped into Mozambique to follow the course of the Zambezi River all the way to where it finally flows into the Indian Ocean. Inspired by the Great Explorer David Livingstone, who spent years travelling the river, he wanted to see for himself how the country had developed after emerging from a brutal civil war in the 1990's.Walking nearly nine hundred kilometres in thirty-four days, he travelled through wild areas untouched by man, full of crocodiles, venomous snakes, scorpions and leopards. He also witnessed breathtaking beauty of the mountains, limitless savannah and malarial swamps, with the Zambezi as a constant companion as it wound its way majestically to the sea.He was met with kindness by numerous strangers, but also experienced violence and intimidation from those who were deelply suspicious of outsiders.

  • Kingfisher af Szabo Ildiko Szabo Spar 14%
    af Szabo Ildiko Szabo

    Kingfishers are a stunning sight to behold. The dash and verve of these cosmopolitan birds has been admired for millennia, appearing in creation myths, imperial regalia, and cultural iconography, and they were once valued as highly as gold. Artists used their iridescent feathers in Tian-tsui, an iconic style of Chinese fine art, for more than 2,400 years. The magnificent temples at Angkor Wat in Cambodia owe their existence in part to the great wealth generated by the live kingfisher trade from the Indochina Peninsula. As well, as a muse, kingfishers have influenced philosophers, playwrights, and artists, from the Roman poet Ovid to Carl Jung, Charles Darwin, and others, while more recently, bio-mimicry engineers have turned to kingfishers for inspiration.This lavishly illustrated book delves into the origins and diversity of the more than 120 species of kingfishers, from the burly kookaburras to the diminutive birds that daringly pluck spiders off webs, defining their characteristics, their differences, their lifestyles, and their cultural significance around the world.

  • Aquatic Ecosystems
    - Influences, Interactions and Impact on the Environment
     

    The seagrass meadows of the Northeast Coast of Brazil have the greatest area, biomass, biometrics and diversity of the Brazilian Coast. In this region, the seagrass diversity and plasticity may vary due to differences in environmental factors. Some natural aspects of the coastal environment or that which affect the coastal zone, mainly climatic (seasons of rains and winds) and geomorphological (bathymetry and substrate type), cause variations in seasonality and plasticity of the species, respectively. Chapter One in this book on aquatic ecosystems summarizes the available information concerning how seagrass vary along the Northeast Coast of Brazil, as well as other ecological information. Chapter Two presents a brief historical overview of biological indicators, considering the assessment of water quality through microalgae from an environmental perspective and their role as natural bioindicators of the effects of eutrophication. Chapter Three provides a mixing zone analysis of surface brine discharges in coastal waters. Chapter Four studies the effect of low salinity on intertidal blue mussels from the White Sea.

  • Whiteflies and Aphids
    - Natural Occurrences, Biological Control and Plant Responses
     

    Whiteflies are one of the major insect pests of greenhouse production systems worldwide, feeding on a wide-range of greenhouse-grown horticultural crops. Whiteflies cause both direct damage by feeding on plant parts such as leaves as well as indirect damage by vectoring certain plant viral and bacterial diseases. In addition, since whiteflies feed within the phloem sieve tubes with their piercing-sucking mouthparts, they may excrete honeydew, a clear, sticky liquid that serves as a growing medium/food source for certain black sooty mold fungi. This book examines the biological control of whiteflies as well as aphids, which are serious pests of agricultural crops, particularly in cereal crops including winter wheat. Aphids induce stress to the wheat crop by damaging plant foliage, lowering the greenness of plants, and affecting productivity. Therefore, it is very important to monitor and prevent effectively wheat aphid for crop management. Additional chapters provide remote sensing data on aphid monitoring and prediction; and changes in the distribution of Russian wheat aphid biotypes in South Africa.
