Wilding: The return of nature to a British farmWilding: The return of nature to a British farm
(paperback)COMING SOON: Published 3rd May 2018: Pre-order your copy now and we will supply your order as soon as stock is availableGeorge Monbiot’s fascinating polemic Feral, published in 2013, introduced many of us to the controversial concept of ‘rewilding’: allowing nature to reassert itself and restore damaged landscapes to something like their former, pristine states. Isabella Tree and her husband made a leap of faith in deciding to step back and let nature take over their traditional Sussex farming estate. The introduction of free-roaming cattle, ponies, pigs and deer has helped transform the landscape and allowed extraordinary increases in wildlife numbers and diversity in just a few years, with rare species like nightingales and turtle doves finding sanctuary here. This experiment has its detractors, but I’d say there’s an important, life-affirming message in this book about the capacity of nature to come back from the brink, if we’re willing to give it the space to do so.Publisher: PicadorISBN: 9781509805099

A Short History of Nearly Everything (Bryson)A Short History of Nearly Everything (Bryson)
Edition Black Swan, 2004. ISBN: 0-552-99704-8. paperback. 686 pages, size: 12.7 x 19.7 x 4 cm. Just light tanning to paper edges. Other than that, the unread book remains in very good condition throughout: soft cover intact; text all clean, neat and tight. Prompt dispatch from UK.Amazon Review:What on earth is Bill Bryson doing writing a book of popular science--A Short History of Almost Everything? Largely, it appears, because this inquisitive, much-travelled writer realised, while flying over the Pacific, that he was entirely ignorant of the processes that created, populated and continue to maintain the vast body of water beneath him. In fact, it dawned on him that "I didn't know the first thing about the only planet I was ever going to live on". The questions multiplied: What is a quark? How can anybody know how much the Earth weighs? How can astrophysicists (or whoever) claim to describe what happened in the first gazillionth of a nanosecond after the Big Bang? Why can't earthquakes be predicted? What makes evolution more plausible than any other theory? In the end, all these boiled down to a single question--how do scientists do science? To this subject Bryson devoted three years of his life, reading books and journals and pestering the people who know (or at least argue about it); and we non-scientists should be pretty grateful to him for passing his findings on to us. Broadly, his investigations deal with seven topics, all of enormous interest and significance: the origins of the universe; the gradual historical discovery of the size and age of the earth (and the beginnings of the awesome notion of deep time); relativity and quantum theory; the present and future threats to life and the planet; the origins and history of life (dinosaurs, mass extinctions and all); and the evolution of man. Within each of these, he looks at the history of the subject, its development into a modern discipline and the frameworks of theory that now support it. This is a pretty broad brief (life, the universe and everything, in fact), and it's a mark of Bryson's skill that he is able to carve a clear path through the thickets of theory and controversy that infest all these disciplines, all the while maintaining a cracking pace and a fairly judicious tone without obvious longueurs or signs of haste. Even readers fairly familiar with some or all of these areas of discourse are likely to learn from A Short History. If not, they will at least be amused--the tone throughout is agreeable, mingling genuine awe with a mild facetiousness that often rises to wit. One compelling theme that appears again and again is the utter unpredictability of the universe, despite all that we think we know about it. Nervous page-turners may care to omit the sensational chapters on the possible ways in which it all might end in disaster--Bryson enumerates with cheerful relish the kind of event that makes you want to climb under the bedclothes: undetectable asteroid colliding with the earth; superheated magma chamber erupting in your back garden; ebola carrier getting off a plane in London or New York; the HIV virus mutating to prevent its destruction in the mosquito's digestive system. Indeed, the chief theme of this sprightly book is the miraculous unlikeliness, in a universe ruled by randomness, of stability and equilibrium--of which one result is ourselves and the complex, fragile planet we inhabit. --Robin Davidson

LamprophyresLamprophyres
Following their recognition by GUmbel (1874), lamprophyres were treated for an entire century as little more than obscure curiosities. Although this situation has changed recently, with a flowering of publications and active workers, lamprophyres remain almost the only group of igneous rocks which have not yet received attention in a dedicated monograph. In five exploratory reviews (1977-1987), the writer aimed to set out what was known about these rocks. The lUGS Subcommission on igneous rock systematics had meanwhile presented its nomenclatural framework (Streckeisen 1979). All this has now been overtaken by a recent explosion of interest, epitomized not least by lamprophyres' greater prominence in the 4th International Kimberlite Conference Proceedings. More data have become available since 1985 than over the entire previous century, and it is obviously impossible for such an extraordinary outpouring to be fully reviewed in this first, preliminary book. At the risk of dissatisfying some readers, therefore, this book concentrates on factual matters, and on a broad overview rather than minutiae. Because not even a world map of known lamprophyres was previously available, almost half the book is deliberately taken up by the first global lamprophyre compilation, and its commensurately extensive Bibliography. Such a compendium of largely objective information is believed to be of more immediate interest and lasting value than a premature pottage of petrogenetic polemic. Chapters 1-7 bring previous studies up to date, and concentrate on factual information.

Medicine of Australian MammalsMedicine of Australian Mammals
This book is the first comprehensive text on the medicine of Australian mammals. It presents the most up-to-date information available on the medical management of all taxa of Australian native mammals and is the single most important and useful standalone text on this subject.The book is divided into two parts. The first includes chapters on general topics relevant to the medical management of captive and free-ranging Australian native mammals such as: veterinary considerations for the rescue, treatment and rehabilitation and release of wildlife; veterinary aspects of hand-rearing orphaned marsupials; marine mammal strandings and the role of the veterinarian; and wildlife health investigation and a guide to postmortem examination of Australian mammals.The second part deals with the medicine of specific taxa of Australian native mammals. Detailed information on taxonomy, distribution, biology, anatomy, physiology, reproduction, husbandry, nutrition, physical and chemical restraint, clinical pathology, hand-rearing, diseases, zoonoses, therapeutics, reproductive management (control and assisted reproduction) and surgery is included.Appendices include a checklist of the mammals of Australia and its territories and a guide to the identification of common parasites of Australian mammals. This is the first single reference text on diseases of Australian mammals. Flow charts and decision trees assist practitioners who need to find information rapidly.
