Tamed : ten species that changed our world by Alice Roberts( Book )
6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 438 libraries worldwide
Ten species that changed our world! For hundreds of thousands of years, our ancestors depended on wild plants and animals for survival. They were hunter-gatherers, consummate foraging experts, but taking the world as they found it. Then a revolution occurred - our ancestors' interaction with other species changed. They began to tame them. The human population boomed; civilisation began. In this book, Alice Roberts uncovers the amazing deep history of ten familiar species with incredible wild pasts: dogs, apples and wheat; cattle; potatoes and chickens; rice, maize, and horses - and, finally, humans. Alice Roberts not only reveals how becoming part of our world changed these animals and plants, but shows how they became our allies, essential to the survival and success of our own species - and to our future
The incredible unlikeliness of being : evolution and the making of us by Alice M Roberts( Book )
14 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 419 libraries worldwide
Bringing together the latest scientific discoveries and drawing on interviews with scientists from around the world, Dr. Roberts illustrates that our evolution has resulted in something that is awe-inspiring yet far from perfect. Our embryonic development is a quirky mix of new and old, with strokes of genius alongside accommodated glitches and imperfections that are all inherited from distant ancestors. For instance, our development and evolutionary past explains why, as embryos, we have what look like gills, and as adults we suffer from back pain. This is a tale of discovery, about ourselves and our environment, that explores why and how we have developed as we have, looking at the development of human physiognomy through the various lenses of embryology, genetics, anatomy, evolution, and zoology. It combines the remarkable set of skills Alice Roberts possesses as a medical doctor, anatomist, osteoarchaeologist, and writer. As Richard Dawkins put it, the reader emerges from her book "entertained and with a deeper understanding of yourself."--The publisher
Frankenstein ( visu )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
Seeking to better understand Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, author and anatomist Professor Alice Roberts returns to the original manuscript and traces the story of Mary's life. She finds someone concerned with the very act of creation itself, discovers clues of another writer's influence, sees a critique of the Romantic ideal of the solitary creative genius, and examines the influence of Mary's parents. Professor Roberts shows that the ideas informing Frankenstein make the novel much more than a simple horror story. Mary Shelley's account does deal in death, but ultimately it provokes us to ask questions about how we live

8 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 265 libraries worldwide

The Celts : search for a civilization by Alice M Roberts( Book )
3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 206 libraries worldwide
"We know a lot about the Romans. They left monuments to their glories and written histories charting their exploits of their heroes. What do we know about the warriors who humiliated them over a thousand years ago? The early Celts did not keep written records and so much of their story and many of their achievements were forgotten. This is the story of a multicultural civilization, linked by a common language. It's the story of how ideas travelled in prehistory: how technology and art spread across the continent. This is the story of a European culture that changed Britain forever"--Jacket

Horizon ( visu )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
Horizon launches the 2014 Longitude Prize. The original Longitude Prize was awarded 300 years ago to John Harrison for his chronometer clock, which enabled ships to determine their exact position at sea. This invention reduced the number of shipwrecks and enabled Britain's global trade to flourish. Professor Alice Roberts looks at the history of this quest for a scientific solution to a life-threatening problem, while other presenters including Liz Bonnin and Michael Mosley explore six issues that could be the focus of the 2014 prize, from malnutrition to antibiotic resistance to zero-carbon flight
Horizon ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
Many scientists had assumed that humans stopped evolving when we started insulating ourselves from the whims of nature. But the mapping of the human genome means that scientists now have a history of our evolution. Astonishingly, not only have humans continued to evolve over the past 50,000 years, we may have been evolving more quickly than at any time in our history. Dr Alice Roberts finds out how we could evolve in the future and asks if we can control the evolution of plants and animals, can we control our own evolution?
Horizon ( visu )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
For centuries men and women seem to have baffled each other. Are boys really better at maths and spatial skills? Are girls better at empathy? What makes us have different strengths and weaknesses? And are these innate or are they shaped by cultural influences? Dr Alice Roberts and Dr Michael Mosley investigate the latest neuroimaging techniques and behavioural studies to determine whether men and women are wired differently. If they are, could this research be harnessed to improve the lives of both men and women?
Horizon. a Horizon guide ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
Sex can be a complicated and sensitive matter. And for decades, it was too sensitive for science and medicine; they didn't even try to study it. But in the 1950s and '60s, that finally changed. Our understanding of how sex works increased and so too did our ability to solve sexual problems. Over the last 40 years Horizon has followed this sexual revolution - from IVF and the contraceptive pill, to Viagra, genetic engineering and frozen embryos. In this Horizon Guide, Professor Alice Roberts investigates the staggering progress in our understanding of sex and asks can science save the day when sex goes wrong?
