Cyanobacteria have existed for 3.5 billion years, yet they are still the most important photosynthetic organisms on the planet for cycling carbon and nitrogen.  The ecosystems where they have key roles range from the warmer oceans to many Antarctic sites.  They also include dense nuisance growths in nutrient-rich lakes and nitrogen-fixers which aid the fer...[Read More]

Ecology of Predator-Prey Interactions , Pedro Barbosa & Ignacio Castellanos


Published in: itune > Life Sciences,Books,Science & Nature > Ecology | Published on 14/Aug/2018 07:03

2005-08-11T07:00:00Z
This book addresses the fundamental issues of predator-prey interactions, with an emphasis on predation among arthropods, which have been better studied, and for which the database is more extensive than for the large and rare vertebrate predators. The book should appeal to ecologists interested in the broad issue of predation effects on communities.

This is the first modern textbook of sensory ecology. It provides an introduction to the key ideas, theories, and examples, describes how sensory systems work, and explores the links between the senses, animal signals, behaviour, and evolution. The book also tackles mechanistic and functional questions, integrating theoretical and empirical work.

In this tour de force of scholarship and vision, Ken Wilber traces the course of evolution from matter to life to mind and describes the common patterns that evolution takes in all three of these domains. From the emergence of mind, he traces the evolution of human consciousness through its major stages of growth and development. He particularly focuses on modernity...[Read More]

Microbial Symbioses (Enhanced Edition) , Sébastien Duperron


Published in: itune > Life Sciences,Books,Science & Nature,Ecology > global warming | Published on 08/Aug/2018 17:40

Plants and animals have evolved ever since their appearance in a largely microbial world. Their own cells are less numerous than the microorganisms that they host and with whom they interact closely. The study of these interactions, termed microbial symbioses, has benefited from the development of new conceptual and technical tools. We are gaining an increasing und...[Read More]
