Seeing further : the story of science, discovery, and the genius of the Royal Society( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,086 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As editor of "Seeing Further," Bryson has rounded up an extraordinary roster of scientists who write and writers who know science in order to celebrate 350 years of the Royal Society, Britain's scientific national academy. The contributors include Margaret Atwood, Steve Jones, Richard Dawkins, James Gleick, Richard Holmes, and Neal Stephenson, among many others, on subjects ranging from metaphysics to nuclear physics, from the threatened endtimes of flu and climate change to our evolving ideas about the nature of time itself, from the hidden mathematics that rule the universe to the cosmological principle that guides "Star Trek."

Lovelock and Gaia : signs of life by Jon Turney( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory only started to gain widespread attention when emerging issues such as environmental degradation and global warming proved that a single species - humans - could radically upset the ecological and atmospheric balance of the planet. While Gaia attracted a quasi-religious following among environmentalists and New Age spiritualists, it was still largely viewed with skepticism by the scientific community. But over the past few decades, many of Lovelock's ideas have led to significant breakthroughs. In fact, the Gaia hypothesis has developed into a guiding principal for a vast range of discrete inquiries into how the Earth works, often referred to as "Earth system science" or geophysiology

I, superorganism : learning to love your inner ecosystem by Jon Turney( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every human body carries a secret cargo: a huge population of micro-organisms that lives in your mouth and nose, on your skin, in your guts. This is the human microbiome, and it has in the last few years become biologists' most thrilling research interest. Vastly outnumbering human cells, our invisible passengers are vital to life. They help us digest food, make essential nutrients, and combat disease. They help regulate allergies and inflammation via the immune system. They influence bowel disease, heart disease, and cancer. They may even have a role in developing behavior. We are not just isolated humans, but superorganisms. And that calls into question our obsession with disinfection and sterilization, as well as our antibiotic addiction, which is like managing a complex ecosystem with napalm. Acclaimed science communicator and editor Jon Turney presents the first book-length account of a new realm of human biology that will make you think again about this machine we call ourselves
