Silence of the bees Parrots in the land of Oz( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silence of the Bees : "Honeybees first appeared on earth around 80 million years ago, and from the beginning have played a key role in our survival. Most fruit trees and vegetable species are entirely dependent on bees to produce, and there is no commercially viable artificial replacement for natural pollination. In the past year up to 80% of the honeybees in the US have vanished. The massive die-offs, first reported in November of 2006, are now the subject of emergency research around the globe as the devastation spreads and scientists race to discover the cause of this ecological disaster. Could it be a disease? Or is it caused by cellphones, pesticides, mites, fungi, or the stress that comes from increasingly industrialized beekeeping operations? Whatever is happening, we must solve the mystery soon, and correct the problem, or face consequences we hardly dare imagine"--Container

Surviving extremes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surviving Extremes: In 1911 Douglas Mawson sailed to the Antarctic. He travelled over the ice cap with dog-teams on a journey that ended in the tragic death of his two companions and, remarkably, his own survival. In the 1990s, Australian Andy Thomas and American astronauts lived aboard Russia's Mir space station. They endured psychological isolation, the worst fire in space history and a collision with another spacecraft. Although almost a hundred years apart, the two journeys tell us a lot about the sort of personalities that will cope with future missions to Mars. Douglas Mawson: A dramatised reconstruction of the tragic 1911-1914 expedition of Sir Douglas Mawson to Antarctica
