Plants, Genes, and Crop Biotechnology An engaging writing style and meticulous attention to students' learning needs have continually set Human Anatomy and Physiology apart. Now the new Fourth Edition goes even further to engage students by incorporating many new features, such as a free Study Partner CD-ROM, a website, student study tips, and enhanced pedagogy and art program. Used by more than half a million students, this market-l Voices of the Rocks : A Scientist Looks at Catastrophes and Ancient Civilizations  Everything changes. The great 19th-century battle between catastrophists and uniformitarians seemed to end with the notion of global cataclysms being dismissed as a back door to the supernatural. But the catastrophist theory has gradually become more and more plausible, so that now, less than a hundred years later, it is widely believed that mass extinctions are linked to meteor strikes. Geologist Robert M. Schoch believes that if a large meteor or comet could extinguish most of our planet's complex life (just ask the trilobites), then a smaller one could destroy a civilization, and perhaps did. In Voices of the Rocks, he tells us how it may have happened. The Great Atlas of the Stars  Binocular-toting amateur stargazers have a new weapon in constellation recognition with The Great Atlas of the Stars by Serge Brunier (Majestic Universe: Views from Here to Infinity). Brunier features 30 of the 88 constellations visible from earth (focusing on those visible in the northern hemisphere) and offers details about the major stars in each: the luminosity of Cancer's "beehive cluster," for example, or the diameter of Perseus's supergiant star Mirfak. Many of Akira Fujii's gorgeous photographs of the night sky are overlaid with a clear Mylar sheet marked with the names of the constellation's stars and the celestial dot-to-dot of their shapes. Collecting contributions from 100 distinguished horticulturists, the handsome and lavishly illustrated American Horticultural Society A-Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants is a truly definitive gardening reference. With its 1,092 tiny-print pages, this may not be the book to tuck into your pocket as you weed and mulch, but what this encyclopedia lacks in portability, it certainly makes up for in scope. Hardy and tender plants, heirloom varieties and the latest hybrids--they're all accounted for here, with growing tips and background information about native habitats and ornamental features. You'll also find a fascinating section about botany, as well as information about basic gardening techniques such as mulching, staking, pruning, propagating, and protecting plants for winter. But the encyclopedia's main attraction is the individual plant entries--more than 15,000 of them, embellished with 6,000 full-color photographs and illustrations. From the visual glossary of leaves to the map of growing regions, The American Horticultural Society A-Z of Garden Plants provides an unsurpassed wealth of botanical information, making it the yardstick by which all other gardening references must be measured 2001 Severe Weather and Storms Photo Gallery and Image Files from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration: Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Snowstorms, Floods, Clouds, Lightning, Fog, Weather Service History

Caught In The Path, A Tornado's Fury, A Community's Rebirth International Handbook of Earthquake and Engineering Seismology, Part A (International Geophysics)   Modern scientific investigations of earthquakes began in the 1880s, and the International Association of Seismology was organized in 1901 to promote collaboration of scientists and engineers in studying earthquakes. The International Handbook of Earthquake and Engineering Seismology, under the auspices of the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI), was prepared by leading experts under a distinguished international advisory board and team of editors.... The Gem & Mineral Collector's Guide to Idaho Newly revised and updated, The Gem & Mineral Collector's Guide to Idaho now combines Volume I and Volume II into one handy rockhounding guide. From Bathtub Mountain and Ruby Rapids to Paris Canyon and Cinder Butte, the author will lead the collector to over 40 of the best mineral, fossil, and gemstone sites Idaho has to offer. Find the best spot in Rabbit Springs to find agate-filled thundereggs or where to hunt for precious opal in Spencer. Eyewitness: Volcano & Earthquake Detecting Lies and Deceit: The Psychology of Lying and Implications for Professional Practice (Wiley Series in Psychology of Crime, Policing, and law Limnology: Lake and River Ecosystems  Ecology textbook offering complete coverage of liminology as a discipline. A major element of the synthesis in this volume is the comparative treatment of topics across lake, river, and river ecosystems, which indicates clear differences between land-water interface regions, lakes, resevoirs, and rivers in terms of their properties.
Looking for Gold: The Modern Prospector's Handbook Ecotoxicology: The Study of Pollutants in Ecosystems, discusses ecosystem ecology from a toxicological perspective in order to illuminate the processes by which pollutants act on individual organisms and the environment. He emphasizes that the complexity of ecosystems and communities requires equally complex analysis, rather than simplistic application of rules derived from laboratory toxicity tests; and he predicts increasing complexity as technology and the impact of human activity on the environment develop and change. -- Copyright  1999 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved Gemstones: Quality and Value, This definitive work is the first of its kind, an introduction to the quality and beauty of gemstones that assists in judging their value and price. Though there are many publications that deal with the mineralogical properties of gemstones, books that discuss the essence of their beauty, how to verify their quality, and how to judge their value are almost non-existent. White Hurricane : A Great Lakes November Gale and America's Deadliest Maritime Disaster Autumn gales have pursued mariners across the Great Lakes for centuries. On Friday, November 7, 1913, those gales captured their prey. After four days of winds up to 90 miles an hour, freezing temperatures, whiteout blizzard conditions, and mountainous seas, 19 ships had been lost, two dozen had been thrown ashore, 238 sailors were dead, and the city of Cleveland was confronting the worst natural disaster in its history Ecology, a science scarcely a century old, aims to give its practitioners an approach to understanding how whole natural systems--for example, watersheds, deserts, and estuaries--work. Few books translate this aim as well as Earth from Above, a stunning collection of photographs that affords its viewers a window into the world's workings. It is something of a commonplace, for instance, that the large-scale logging now being visited on the world's rainforests is causing untold damage to tropical ecosystems. In French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand's hands, this problem is translated from arid fact to alarming image, giving immediate meaning to the statistics that underlie today's environmental headlines; his photographs of the ruins of rural Madagascar, where forests are being cleared at a rate of 1,500 square kilometers (580 square miles) annually, are a sad case in point. This companion volume to the forthcoming BBC/Discovery Channel miniseries The Blue Planet is a broad-ranging, nonthreatening introduction to our planet's oceans for the reader who is interested, but not well versed, in science. Six of seven chapters cover the basic ocean environments (e.g., tropical seas, frozen seas, and the deep), with an emphasis on the plant and animal life found in these regions. Although the focus is on biological oceanography, one full chapter covers physical oceanography and marine geology. The relevant chemistry, geology, and physics of the ocean are also introduced as needed. Spectacular photographs are plentiful throughout. Although lacking a bibliography or suggestions for further reading, the book contains a good index, a glossary, and even cross references in the text when appropriate. The science is thorough and up-to-date. A good introduction to the oceans for the scientific novice, this book is recommended for public, high school, and middle school libraries that do not have extensive marine science collections, as well as for public libraries whose patrons are fans of the Discovery Channel.

Geometry and Trigonometry for Calculus (Self-Teaching Guides) Petroleum Geochemistry and Geology  The Measure of a Mountain: Beauty and Terror on Mount Rainier  Mount Rainier, North America's biggest volcano, looms over Seattle like an invitation to... adventure? Disaster? Discovery? It's all of the above for Bruce Barcott, a Seattle writer who captures the mountain from multiple angles in this luminous biography that defines Rainier's landscape to be like none other on the continent. By turns witty and introspective, Barcott's trip to the top of the glacier-clad peak is filled with history, scientific observation, and a divided personal attachment that struggles to make sense of the mountain and its effect on the surrounding land and people. The Measure of a Mountain is a literate, entertaining view of a totemic Northwest landmark. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Curves and Surfaces in Geometric Modeling: Theory and Algorithms Evolution: The Triumph of an Idea  While its opponents may sneer that "it's just a theory," evolution has transcended that label to take its place as one of the most important ideas in human history. Science journalist Carl Zimmer explores its history and future in Evolution: The Triumph of an Idea, a companion piece to the epic PBS series of the same name. The book, lavishly illustrated with photos of our distant cousins, anatomical diagrams, and timelines, is as beautiful as it is enlightening. While those closely following the field will find little more here than a well-written summation of the state of the art in 2001, readers who have watched the evolutionary debates from a distance will quickly catch up with the details of the principal arguments Reading the Earth - Landforms in the Making Here is the first comprehensive, plainly written, richly illustrated guide to landforms for general readers. Mountains and volcanoes, rivers and glaciers, plains and plateaus - features of deserts, seacoasts, limestone caverns - all these and hundreds of associated features likely to be seen anywhere in the world are described concisely and illustrated with 556 photographs and 75 drawings. The index with its 6,000 or more page entries makes information easy to find. A book for all who enjoy natural scenery and wonder how it is made; a book also for earth-science teachers and students, engineers and nature photographers, land-use specialists and archeologists, park rangers and hikers, birders and rockhounds - all who desire some ready knowledge of landforms in their work or recreation.
