  • The Naming of the Shrew; A Curious History of Latin Names43% OFF
    The Naming of the Shrew; A Curious… by John Wright

    Why on earth has the entirely land-loving Eastern Mole been named Scalopus aquaticus, or the Oxford Ragwort been called Senecio squalidus - 'dirty old man'? What were naturalists thinking when they called a beetle Agra katewinsletae, a genus of fish Batman, and a Trilobite Han solo? Why is zoology replete with names such as Chloris chloris chloris (the greenfinch), and Gorilla gorilla gorilla (a species of, well gorilla)? The Naming of the Shrew will unveil these mysteries, exploring the history of scientific names, celebrating their poetic nature and revealing how naturalists sometimes get things so terribly wrong. With wonderfully witty style and captivating narrative, this book will make you see Latin names in a whole new light.

  • Avian Survivors: The History and Biogeography of Palearctic Birds42% OFF
    Avian Survivors: The History and… by Clive Finlayson

    The impacts of global warming are of concern to all of us. The potential responses of birds to climate change have come increasingly to the fore, and are of particular interest to the ornithological community. Are birds sensitive to climate change and how will they react to a world of global warming?

    These are the key issues to be explored in this book, with particular reference to Western Palearctic birds. Climate changes that have affected the region in the last twenty million years will be explored, drawing on published data on fossil birds. A major part of the book will be devoted to the distribution of Western Palearctic birds in relation to bio-climate. The final section of the book looks at migration and the relationship of the Western Palearctic to Africa.

  • Field Guide to Wildlife of the Gambia23% OFF
    Field Guide to Wildlife of the Gambia by David Penney

    The Gambia, located on the coast of tropical West Africa, supports a diverse range of habitat types, from forests to mangrove swamps, savannah grasslands and coastal ecosystems. It has a rich and diverse flora and fauna, which for some groups such as birds and mammals is relatively well known. However, for groups such as arachnids and most insect orders very little information is available. In this relatively small volume, the author provides close-up macrophotographs and notes on the biology of more than 700 non-marine species, including those most likely to be seen by the vigilant nature lover during a short visit to the country. Many of the species represent the first records for the country and several will almost certainly be new to science. The focus of this guide is identification in the field, so text has been kept to a bare minimum. It is a must for anybody with even a passing interest in the wildlife of The Gambia and West Africa.
