Nhan đề: Here be dragons : the scientific quest for extraterrestrial life / David Koerner, Simon LeVay
Số phân loại : 576.839 D249; Đặc điểm vật lý: 264Tr : Minh họa ; 24 cm
Tác giả khác: Simon LeVay
     *Tóm tắt : The authors survey the work of biologists, cosmologists, computer theorists, NASA engineers, SETI researchers, roboticists, and UFO enthusiasts and debunkers as they attempt to answer the greatest remaining question facing humankind: Are we alone? From their "safe haven of skepticism" the authors venture into the "rough seas of speculation," where theory and evidence run the gamut from hard science to hocus pocus. Arguing that the universe is spectacularly suited for the evolution of living creatures, Koerner and LeVay give us ringside seats at the great debates of Big Science. The contenitous arguments about what really happens in evolution, the acrimonious UFO controversy, and the debate over intelligence versus artificial intelligence shed new light on the wildly divergent claims about the universe and life's place in it. The authors argue that while no direct evidence of extraterrestrial life yet exists, habitats and chemical building blocks for life abound in the universe. A wealth of new astronomical techniques and space missions may provide this evidence early in the next century      .

Nhan đề: Mass extinctions and their aftermath / A. Hallam, P.B. Wignall
Số phân loại : 576.84 H103; Đặc điểm vật lý: viii, 320 tr. : ill., maps ; 24 cm
Tác giả khác: P.B. Wignall
     *Tóm tắt : This is the first review of all the major mass extinctions in the history of life. It covers all groups of organisms - plant, animal, terrestrial, and marine - that have gone extinct alongside the geological and sedimentological evidence for environmental changes during the biotic crises. All proposed extinction mechanisms - climate change, meteorite impact, volcanisms - are critically assessed. The demise of the dinosaurs has been amply discussed, but this is the first time that this event has been put into the proper context of other extinction events      .

Nhan đề: Frogs, flies, and dandelions : speciation--the evolution of new species / Menno Schilthuizen
Số phân loại : 576.86 M547; Đặc điểm vật lý: 245Tr : Minh họa ; 23 cm
Tác giả khác:
     *Tóm tắt : The earth is home to a wild proliferation of species, millions of life-forms that come in a spectacular--and often bizarre--array of sizes, shapes, and colors. But what triggers this fantastic explosion of life? How does one species split into another? Even Charles Darwin was baffled before such questions, calling them "The Mystery of Mysteries.      .

3953. Nhan đề: Ecology / Stanley I. Dodson ... [et al.]
Số phân loại : 577 S107; Đặc điểm vật lý: xiv, 434 p. : ill. ; 24 cm
     *Tóm tắt : It discusses six kinds of ecology: landscape, physiological, ecosystem, population, community, and behavioral, focusing on the kinds of questions ecologists ask about their world rather than on accumulated ecological knowledge. For each type of ecology, the authors explore how it is distinct, the theory and technology involved, and its successes and possibilities for the future. Each chapter discusses the roles of evolution and of modeling in that particular kind of ecology, and also emphasizes that there are important questions ecologists do not yet have the answers to. These questions encourage students to consider pursuing the study of ecology because there is still much significant work to be done. The authors, all experts in specific areas of ecology, strive to inspire students by communicating the excitement they feel about their respective fields of study and by actively involving students in the learning process. The discussions are set in the context of the human relationship to nature and include practical applications of ecology, such as resource management and conservation      .

Số phân loại : 577.015118 J400; Đặc điểm vật lý: ix, 180 p. : ill. ; 25 cm
Tác giả khác: Pete Smith
     *Tóm tắt : Environmental Modelling: An Introduction shows how modelling can be used to explain experimental observations, and how these observations - and the data gathered - can be extrapolated to help us understand new environments and processes, and to solve environmental problems      .
