Insectopedia uncovers the fascinating and infinitely varied world of insects. It explores their intriguing behaviour and biology – from mating and breeding, metamorphosis and movement to sight, smell, hearing and their adaptations to heat and cold. A chapter on superorganisms probes the curious phenomenon of social communities among insects; another covers the critical role that these creatures play in maintaining the fragile balance of life on our planet. The book concludes with a 60-page illustrated field guide, describing most insect orders and their main families. Previously published as Insectlopedia of Southern Africa, this fully revised and redesigned edition includes up-to-date information throughout, an expanded ID section, and several hundred new photographs. Sales points: more than 700 photographs, many depicting seldom photographed insect behaviours, clear, easy to read text, and a range of feature and fact boxes that add a lively touch, includes an ID section with photographs and line illustrations, the author is well known for his radio talks on insects.

In the last few decades there has been an ever-increasing component in most BSc Zoology degree courses of cell biology, physiology and genetics, for spectacular developments have taken place in these fields. Some aspects of biotechnology are now also being included. In order to accommodate the new material, the old zoology courses were altered and the traditional two-year basis of systematics of the animal kingdom, comparative anatomy (and physiology) and evolution, was either severely trimmed or reduced and presented in an abridged form under another title. Soon after these course alterations came the swing to modular teaching in the form of a series of shorter, separate courses, some of which were optional. The entire BSc degree course took on a different appearance and several different basic themes became possible. One major result was that in the great majority of cases taxonomy and systematics were no longer taught and biology students graduated without this basic training. We field biologists did appreciate the rising interest in ecology and environ mental studies, but at the same time lamented the shortage of taxonomic skills, so that often field work was based on incorrect identifications. For years many of us with taxonomic inclinations have been bedevilled by the problem of teaching systematics to undergraduates. At a guess, maybe only 5% of students find systematics interesting. It is, however, the very basis of all studies in biology - the correct identification of the organism concerned and its relationships to others in the community.

Publisher: Christian Liberty Press
When Biology: A Search for Order in Complexity was originally released in the early 0970s, it was the first text of its kind to challenge the long-standing assumption that a study of biology must be predicated upon the atheistic philosophy of Darwinian evolution. Now, over three decades later, as the so-called theory of evolution faces a deepening crisis, Christian Liberty Press is pleased to present a newly updated and improved version of the textbook that first challenged the modern scientific community with the validity of biblical creationism.Biology: A Search for Order in Complexity, Second Edition, is the culmination of over two years of diligent study and labor by a team of educators and scientists who are committed to giving students a greater understanding of and appreciation for the handiwork of Almighty God. Every effort has been made to ensure that this biology text is scientifically accurate and relevant to the needs of students in the twenty-first century. With gratefulness to the Creator of the whole earth, we humbly present this new edition to the public in the hope that it will be a powerful influence in the lives of those who are seeking true science and an understanding of life.

This book presents a program of basic studies dealing with living organisms. The characteristics of each living kingdom are presented and the diversity among species within the same kingdom is illustrated. Topics include algae, bacteria, fungi, and various species of plants and animals. Each of the twelve teaching units in this book is introduced by a color transparency (print books) or PowerPoint slide (eBooks) that emphasizes the basic concept of the unit and presents questions for discussion. Reproducible student pages provide reinforcement and follow-up activities. The teaching guide offers descriptions of the basic concepts to be presented, background information, suggestions for enrichment activities, and a complete answer key.

The origins and development of the fascinating variety of continents, countries and communities of the world are the engrossing subjects of the present prize set of 17 Vols. in 34 Parts of the encyclopaedia. With marvelously lucid text and equally graphic illustrations, the writers and editors present a panoramic account of the splendid variety of the family of mankind, its numerous and varied habitations, its physical, human and economic geography of man and his activities, and the living dynamic relation that mankind had with fellow communities across land and sea as well as with the planet that sustains all of them. The World Encyclopaedia of Nations and Nationalities opens to students, teachers and general readers a vast and beautiful window onto the great as well as the little known customs, manners and cultures of the world, reveals the universal geographical features and singularities of all countries in the continents, the introduces in vivid detail the many kind of inhabitants that are found world-wide. Not only is this brilliantly conceived encyclopaedia the pride of many libraries across the world, but it is also regarded as an apt companion and complement to the earlier historic work of Darwin, namely, Origin of the Species. In its comprehensive sweep and vibrant treatment the present the present volumes of this encyclopaedia will be an essential part of all libraries.

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
This reference guide gives general details about the swallows and martins of the world. These include appearance, the basic coloration and differences between the sexes and immatures and the function of other areas of colouring. Several species within the same geographical area are often segregated by feeding in different habitats or at different heights or by eating different size-classes of insects. The two sub-families, one being the two river martins, the other containing about 72 species mainly in the genus hirundo, are dealt with, including their distribution and migration patterns. Feeding, courtship and breeding habits are considered, together with details of nesting sites, clutch size, incubation and life-span. Finally, the population sizes of the various species are examined, noting that whilst many have expanded their range by using man-made structures, forest species probably remain small and one species, the Red Sea swallow is known from only one specimen. The book follows the same approach, style and presentation as "The Herons Handbook" published in 1985. It is illustrated by the winner of the prestigious "British Birds Illustrator of the Year Award" and the author has contributed to many scientific papers and journals including BBC's "Wildlife Magazine".
