The art of organic forms by Philip C Ritterbush( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Host relations of the parasitic cowbirds by Herbert Friedmann( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cowbirds are an ideal group in which to study the biology of brood parasitism; within the six included species there are displayed all stages of the development of this mode of reproduction ranging from that of the non-parasitic bay-wing through those of the completely parasitic screaming, shiny, brown-headed, bronzed, and giant cowbirds. The present report deals only with their host relationships, as this is the aspect of their biology in which our knowledge has shown the greatest increase since the author's discussion was published in 1929
Checklist of the birds of Thailand by H. G Deignan( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present list includes the names of 1,173 birds and is complete so far as the avifauna of Thailand is known to this date (1962)
A revision of the moths of the subfamily Prodoxinae (Lepidoptera: Incurvariidae) by Donald R Davis( Book )

4 editions published between 1967 and 1970 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary aim of the present study is to provide a modern, systematic treatment for all members of the subfamily. It is also the author's intention to summarized all previous information on the life histories of the various species. Thus, in addition to being a specific revision of the Proxodinae, it is hoped this study will prove useful as a general reference
Free-living Copepoda from Ifaluk Atoll in the Caroline Islands, with notes on related species by W Vervoort( Book )

4 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A small collection of nonparasitic Copepoda -- collected during a survey of the fauna of Ifaluk Atoll, Caroline Islands, and obtained as a result of the Coral Atoll Project of the Pacific Science Board -- was placed at the author's disposal in 1959. The collection contained Calanoida, Cyclopoida, and Harpacticoida (some 250 individuals) proved to contain a fair number of sand-dwelling species. The sand-dwelling species and Harpacticoida took more time than expected, largely because of scanty existing knowledge of these forms. Though the total number of species is not impressive, the pecentage of new forms among them is high, and many previously described forms are recorded here for the first time from the Pacific area
Bagworm moths of the Western Hemisphere (Lepidoptera: Psychidae) by Donald R Davis( Book )

3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is a preliminary revision of the tineoid family Psychidae of North and South America (including the West Indies). The purpose of the present study is to re-evaluate the decisions of earlier workers; to complete and, where necessary, to correct their conclusions; and to investigate and utilize several taxonomic criteria in order facilitate identification and a more comprehensive understanding of the insects presently included in this family
Forces of change : a new view of nature( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Takes readers on a tour of truly global proportions. In this single volume, more than 20 of the world's most innovative and visionary scientists, scholars, and writers, including Stephay Jay Gould, Lynn Margulis, Daniel Botkin, and David Quammen - illuminate the forces that have defined and continue to transform our planet and all of its inhabitants. Nature does not remain in steady balance, as earlier believed; rather it undergoes constant change. This new view of nature challenges assumptions and changes our sense of being human in this cosmos. All together, these essays represent a dramatic range of new ideas about nature and the future of the planet

Catalogue of the neotropical Squamata by James Arthur Peters( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue represents an attempt to make it possible for participants in the International Biological Program working in Latin America to identify the snakes encountered in the field. It was originally planned to include information on the ecology and ethology of the reptilian species, to permit field investigators to distingush the unusual ecological event from the commonplace occurrence, but time has not permitted inclusion of that degree of detail. Instead, effort has been focused on construction of a workable field manual with keys designed to help identification without laboratory faciliites

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a catalog of echinoid type specimens in the U. S. National Museum and the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University. Individual descriptions are concise and provide catalog numbers for the type specimens

Crustacea Decapoda and Stomatopoda of Easter Island and surrounding areas : a documented checklist with historical overview and biogeographic comments by J Poupin( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documented checklist of the crustacea Decapoda and Stomatopoda is proposed for Easter Island and surrounding areas. The study area is situated between longitudes 80°-110° W and latitudes 15°-30° S. It includes Easter Island, the islet of Sala y Gómez and the submarine seamounts of Sala y Gómez and Nazca. The historical overview of Crustacea collections shows that this area has been predominantly explored by US, Chilean and Russian expeditions. The total number of taxa is 188, out of which 165 are determined to species level. These include 96 shrimps, 59 crabs, 23 anomuran crabs, seven lobsters, and three mantis shrimps. Most of the species are Indo-West Pacific (39.4%) while only some of them are linked with the eastern Pacific (8.5%). Overall the rate of endernism is 20.6%, but two different areas are distinguished: Easter Island (depth range 0-40 m) with a rate of endemism of 18%, and the seamounts situated west of 83° W (150-800 m) with a rate of endemism of 32%. Some species, such as Calcinus imperialis, Panulirus pascuensis, or Leptograpsus variegatus, indicate a link between the area studied and the islands that lie along the southern edge of the tropical Pacific (e.g. Pitcairn, Rapa, Kermadec). The species diversity decreases by a factor of five from west to east between French Polynesia and Easter Island
