The Birds of Pakistan: Passeriformes : Pittas to Buntings
de T.J. Roberts(Ed. OUP Pakistan) Isbn : 0195774051
82.09 €
This work concludes noted ornithologist Tom Roberts' magnificent survey of the birds of Pakistan. Together with Volume 1, the work covers 660 species, offering detailed descriptions of each, supported by 47 full-page plates and over 100 black and white illustrations drawn by the author. Distribution maps of over 570 species detail wintering or breeding status, and voice descriptions are drawn from the author's own extensive collection of bird recordings made in Pakistan during his 34 years of residence in that country. Each volume contains a bibliography and index. Amateur and professional ornithologists alike will appreciate this unique work of art and scholarship.

Nonlinear Dynamics in Astronomy and Physics: In Memory of Henry Kandrup, Volume 1045

Nonlinear Dynamics in Astronomy and Physics: In Memory of Henry Kandrup, Volume 1045
de Henry E. Kandrup, S. T. Gottesman, J. R. Buchler(Ed. Wiley-Blackwell) Isbn : 1573315915
118.13 €
This volume, the proceedings of the 16th Florida Workshop in Nonlinear Astronomy and Physics, emphasizes the cross–disciplinary nature of much current research in astronomy and physics in the area of dynamics. Developments in one field can advance more quickly when information is available regarding parallel developments in other fields. This occurs not only by the exchange of methods and techniques, but also from conceptual refinements resulting from different perspectives on similar problems. Contributors to this volume include theorists and experimentalists from the fields of nonlinear dynamics, mathematics, galactic dynamics and structure, dark matter, plasma physics, accelerator beams, and statistical mechanics. Dynamical problems on all astrophysical scales are discussed from ...

Physical Processes in Astrophysics: Proceedings of a Meeting in Honour of Evry Schatzman Held in Paris, France, 22-24 September 1993

Physical Processes in Astrophysics: Proceedings of a Meeting in Honour of Evry Schatzman Held in Paris, France, 22-24 September 1993
de Roxburgh(Ed. Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH Co. K) Isbn : 3540602593
44.29 €
This volume, in honour of Evry Schatzman, contains in-depth reviews on central topics of modern astrophysics, such as stellar physics, covering stellar evolution, solar neutrinos, stellar rotation and spin down, convection transport processes, neutron stars, white dwarfs, and novae. All the talks were given by leading experts who had time both to develop the basics of their subject and to cover recent work. The volume is meant for both graduate students and researchers.

Dynamical Evolution of Star Clusters: Confrontation of Theory and Observations : Proceedings of the 174th Symposium of the International Astronomical Union, Held in Tokyo, Japan, August 22

Dynamical Evolution of Star Clusters: Confrontation of Theory and Observations : Proceedings of the 174th Symposium of the International Astronomical Union, Held in Tokyo, Japan, August 22
de International Astronomical Union(Ed. Kluwer Academic Publishers) Isbn : 0792340698
168.33 €
This volume reviews recent progress in the study of dynamics of star clusters. The meeting focused on the enormous progress of both the observation and the theoretical modeling of star clusters. New results from the refurbished Hubble Space Telescope (HST) include the mass function down to the hydrogen burning limits, white dwarf sequence, and central density profiles of `post-collapse' clusters by star counts. On the theoretical side, this symposium saw the first direct evidence of gravothermal oscillation through N-body simulation, which was made possible by GRAPE-4, the dedicated special-purpose computer for N-body simulation. Numerical techniques to combine stellar evolution and dynamical evolution of the cluster were presented. The book will be of primary interest to astrophysicists.

Bird Population Studies: Relevance to Conservation and Management

Bird Population Studies: Relevance to Conservation and Management
de Christopher M. Perrins(Ed. OUP Oxford) Isbn : 0198540825
118.31 €
This volume reviews our current understanding of avian population dynamics and explores ways in which population studies can contribute to effective conservation and management. Estimation of demographic parameters, the role of mathematical modelling, and the special problems of island populations and seabird populations are discussed. The emphasis throughout is on how bird populations are regulated under various constraints and conditions, including the impact of environmental changes. This book will be useful and interesting to ornithologists, ecologists, wildlife managers, and population biologists.

Very Low-Mass Stars and Brown Dwarfs

Very Low-Mass Stars and Brown Dwarfs
de Richard Rhodes, D. C. Heggie, Piet Hut, Keith Mars(Ed. Cambridge University Press) Isbn : 0521663350
111.04 €
This volume provides a state-of-the-art review of our current knowledge of brown dwarfs and very low-mass stars. The hunt for and study of these elusive objects is currently one of the most dynamic areas of research in astronomy for two reasons. Brown dwarfs bridge the gap between stars and planets. They could be as numerous as stars in galaxies and contribute to the 'dark matter' of the Universe. This volume presents review articles from a team of international authorities who gathered at a conference in La Palma to assess the spectacular progress that has been made in this field in the last few years. This volume reviews both the latest observations and theory to provide an essential reference to one of the most exciting fields in contemporary astronomy.

Synthesizing Nature-nurture: Prenatal Roots of Instinctive Behavior

Synthesizing Nature-nurture: Prenatal Roots of Instinctive Behavior
de Gilbert Gottlieb(Ed. Psychology Press) Isbn : 0805825487
59.38 €
This volume provides a primarily nontechnical summary of experimental and theoretical work conducted over the course of 35 years which resulted in a developmental framework capable of integrating causal influences at the genetic, neural, behavioral, and ecological levels of analysis. It describes novel solutions to the nature-nurture problem at both the empirical and theoretical levels. Following field observations, laboratory experiments led to the discovery of the nonobvious prenatal experiential basis of instinctive behavior in two species--ground-nesting mallard ducklings and hole-nesting wood ducklings. This work also describes the experiences that lead to the rigid canalization of behavioral development as well as the social and sensory experiences that favor the continuance of flexi...
