Native Plants for New England Gardens
English | March 1st, 2018 | ASIN: B078J6QHTV, ISBN: 1493029258 | 232 Pages | EPUB | 54.75 MB
Native plants are drought tolerant, disease resistant, wildlife friendly, and environmentally sound. Experts increasingly encourage gardeners to use natives exclusively. This handy and practical guide focuses on 100 great native flowers, ground covers, shrubs, ferns, and grasses that will thrive in New England gardens. The presentation is aimed at gardeners, who want concise, practical information. It will also include material on the importance and desirability of using native plants. The heart of this book is 100 two-page spreads, one for each species. The spreads will include facts about the plant of use to a gardener (not a botanist)-where it grows best, when it blooms, the soil conditions in which it thrives, its appeal to wildlife, sunlight requirements, how high it grows, how to propagate it, and how to avoid any problems particular to the species. Each spread will also feature two color photos.

The Aquaponic Farmer: A Complete Guide to Building and Operating a Commercial Aquaponic System
English | October 9th, 2017 | ASIN: B074BW31CZ, ISBN: 086571858X | 304 Pages | EPUB | 15.17 MB
Aquaponic farming-raising fish and vegetables together commercially-is the most promising innovation for a sustainable, profitable, localized food system. Until now, systems have largely focused on warm-water fish such as tilapia. A lack of reliable information for raising fish and vegetables in the cool climates of North America and Europe has been a major stumbling block. The Aquaponic Farmer is the game changer.
Built around a proven 120-foot greenhouse system operable by one person, the book distills vast experience and complete step-by- step guidance for starting and running a cold-water aquaponics business. Coverage includes:
A primer on cold-water aquaponics
Pros and cons of different systems
Complete design and construction of a Deep Water Culture system
Recommended and optional equipment and tools
System management, standard operating procedures, and maintenance checklists
Maximizing fish and veg production
Strategies for successful sales and marketing of fish and plants
As the only comprehensive commercial cold-water resource, The Aquaponic Farmer is essential for farmers contemplating the aquaponics market, aquaponics gardeners looking to go commercial, and anyone focused on high quality food production.

Chromothripsis: Methods and Protocols
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 360 Pages | ISBN : 1493977792 | 16.5 MB
This detailed book presents an up-to-date view on methods and experimental approaches developed to identify and explore the chromothripsis phenomenon. Beginning with a section exploring the genesis and impact of chromothripsis, the collection continues by covering the identification of chromothripsis, the causal mechanisms of chromothripsis, the bioinformatics tools for chromothripsis analysis, and experimental systems recently developed for the in vitro investigation of chromothripsis. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Chromothripsis: Methods and Protocols serves as a vital resource for cell biologists, molecular biologists, cytogeneticists, and geneticists investigating chromothripsis, but also for students and researchers new to the field of chromothripsis and genomic instability.

Dinosaurs: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions), 2nd Edition
English | September 21st, 2017 | ASIN: B071WMKLR3, ISBN: 0198795920 | 192 Pages | EPUB | 2.82 MB
Dinosaurs are fascinating creatures and their popularity seems never ending, fuelled by films such as Jurassic Park and documentaries such as Walking with Dinosaurs. Yet dinosaurs (or more precisely non-avian dinosaurs) last trod the Earth 65 million years ago. All we know of them today are their fossilised bones, the tracks and traces that they left behind and, in very rare instances, some of the soft tissues or even traces of their chemistry.
In many respects dinosaurs present us with one of the ultimate forensic challenges: they comprise the fragmentary remains of creatures that died many tens of millions of years ago, rather than just recently, or a few tens of years ago, which is the problem usually faced by forensic pathologists. How much do we really know about them, and to what extent can their remains inform us about ancient worlds, and indeed about the history of our planet?
In this Very Short Introduction David Norman discusses how dinosaurs were first discovered and interpreted, and how our understanding of them has changed over the past 200 years. He looks at some of the amazing discoveries that have enabled us to gain new and unexpected insights into dinosaurs as animals with natural histories and behaviours, and considers some of the biggest questions in dinosaur biology, such as the implications of them having warm blood. Norman also shows how research upon dinosaurs has been enriched, particularly in recent decades, by technological break-throughs, which complement the informed speculation and luck which have played a part in many of the major discoveries.

Their Blood Runs Cold : Adventures with Reptiles and Amphibians
by Whit Gibbons
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0817357513 | 196 Pages | PDF | 37 MB
Their Blood Runs Cold is entertaining, informative reading that not only enhances our understanding of a unique group of animals, but also provides genuine insight into the mind and character of a research scientist.
Whit Gibbons possesses the rare talent of conveying the challenge and excitement of scientific inquiry. A research ecologist who specializes in the study of reptiles and amphibians, he gives accounts of work in the field that are as readable as good short stories.
From the dangers of being chased by an angry rattlesnake to the exhilaration of discovering a previously undescribed species, Gibbons brings to life the everyday experiences of the herpetologist as he chases down lizards, turtles, snakes, alligators, salamanders, and frogs in their natural habitats. With essays like "Turtles May Be Slow but They're 200 Million Years Ahead of Us" and "How to Catch an Alligator in One Uneasy Lesson," Their Blood Runs Cold both entertains and informs.
The thirtieth anniversary edition of Their Blood Runs Cold features a new prologue and epilogue, additions that address changes in the taxonomy and study of reptiles and amphibians that have occurred since the publication of the original edition and offer suggestions for further reading that highlight the explosion of interest in the topic.
