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

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 104 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

Platypus : world's strangest animal by Elizabeth Parer-Cook( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The platypus is a remarkable semi-aquatic mammal found only in Australia. Along with the echidna, it lays eggs like a bird, walks like a reptile and has existed for millions of years. One of the world's strangest looking animals, it is so unusual that when it was first examined by European naturalists they thought it was made up of various animals sewn together - a hoax - with a bill and webbed feet like a duck, a tail like a beaver and venomous spurs. People have always been fascinated by these cute, beguiling little creatures. However, many of their habits remain a mystery as they are largely nocturnal and difficult to spot in the wild. This book will take you on a journey into the bizarre world of the platypus and echidna - the world's only egg-laying mammals - and offers clues as to where in Australia you may go to see these intriguing animals

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.
