Evolution : the story of life by Douglas Palmer( Book )

Geometrid moths of the world a catalogue (Lepidoptera, Geometridae) by MJ Scoble( )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Geometridae is one of the most species-rich families of Lepidoptera. This book is the first comprehensive catalogue of the 35 000 names of these insects. The primary purpose of the work is to provide a substantial body of taxonomic information, much of it previously unpublished, on the available names of the Geometridae. The catalogue is based on the most complete world classification of the geometrids, the card index to genera and species in The Natural History Museum, London. The two volumes include information on type specimens, type localities and, where possible, larval foodplants. A CD-ROM listing all species referred to in the two text volumes is included with the package and will be of great value to verify valid names and to check spelling

Lichens by William Purvis( Book )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The book starts by looking at how lichens have been used throughout history in medicines, dyes, food and perfumes. It then goes on to describe what lichens are, and how they grow and reproduce. A detailed survey is then given of the range of habitats in which lichens can be found: on trees, rocks, heaths and moors, chalk and limestone, mountains, rivers, lakes, the coast, walls and buildings, most famously on churches and in churchyards. Drawing on his broad experience in this field, Gilbert also discusses the susceptibility of lichens to air pollution, and how they can be used to detect levels of environmental pollution."--Jacket

"Humans have manipulated and changed the ways of life of other mammals for thousands of years. This new edition of A Natural History of Domesticated Mammals explores the progress that has been made in understanding the origins of domestication and its spread, both biologically and culturally, across the world. The archaeological evidence for the earliest dating of domestication of each species is included, reflecting the recent expansion in such studies."--Jacket

"This book is a wonderful resource for botanists and all those interested in fungi, suitable for the general reader or a student looking for background reading. The focus is on the larger fungi, those which have an obvious fruiting body. Roy Watling MBE, a respected mycologist who has written widely on the subject of fungi, sheds light on these organisms in a clear, accessible text illustrated with colour photographs on every page."--BOOK JACKET
Bats by Phil Richardson( Book )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Of the world's over 5,000 species of mammals, more than 1,000 -- one in five -- are bats. Across eastern North America, however, many bat populations are at risk of extinction, possibly within the next two decades. As this book reveals, it would be a tragic loss. Bats describes the amazing, fascinating, and bizarre world of bats. Bat expert Phil Richardson gives you a guided tour of the nocturnal world of bats: where they live, how they feed, and how they survive in almost every habitat on the planet. Some are tiny, barely the size of a butterfly, while others have wingspans as wide as some humans are tall, more than six feet. Some eat insects and fruit while others have more unusual tastes in food, such as the fisherman bat, which uses its claws to catch fish, or the unjustly demonized blood-eating vampire bats. Bats also dispels common myths -- bats will not fly into your hair and they are not blind -- while it describes bats' complex life cycles and the important role they play in the natural world. The fruit-eating species disperse seed, while the nectar feeders pollinate trees and plants and help to regenerate cleared tropical forest. The insect eaters prey on huge numbers of flying insects every night, some of which are serious pests of our crops, farm animals, buildings and humans. The bats that swoop in and out of our gardens at dusk, for example, help to keep mosquitoes away, without the use of pesticides and without harm to us. The truth about bats is that these amazing creatures have a complex lifestyle, a rich social life, and senses that are almost beyond our comprehension. Wherever you live, these are likely to be bats near you, so discover more with the help of this highly readable and beautifully illustrated book"--Cover page 4

Atlas of benthic foraminifera by Ann E. L Holbourn( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Deep-sea benthic foraminifera have played a central role in biostratigraphic, paleoecological, and paleoceanographical research for over a century. These single-celled marine protists are important because of their geographic ubiquity, distinction morphologies and rapid evolutionary rates, their abundance and diversity deep-sea sediments, and because of their utility as indicators of environmental conditions both at and below the sediment-water interface. In addition, stable isotopic data obtained from deep-sea benthic foraminiferal tests provide paleoceanographers with environmental information that is proving to be of major significance in studies of global climatic change. This work collects together, for the first time, new morphological descriptions, taxonomic placements, stratigraphic occurrence data, geographical distribution summaries, and palaeoecological information, along with state-of-the-art colour photomicrographs (most taken in reflected light, just as you would see them using light microscopy), of 300 common deep-sea benthic foraminifera species spanning the interval from Jurassic - Recent. This volume is intended as a reference and research resource for post-graduate students in micropalaeontology, geological professionals (stratigraphers, paleontologists, paleoecologists, palaeoceanographers), taxonomists, and evolutionary (paleo)biologists
