An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore
1 Al Gore An Inconvenient Truth
Bloomsbury 230179 London 2006 0747589062 / 9780747589068 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition No Dust Jacket "An Inconvenient Truth" Gore's groundbreaking, battle cry of a follow-up to the bestselling "Earth in the Balance" is being published to tie in with a documentary film of the same name. Both the book and film were inspired by a series of multimedia presentations on global warming that Gore created and delivers to groups around the world. With this book, Gore, who is one of our environmental heroes and a leading expert brings together leading-edge research from top scientists around the world; photographs, charts, and other illustrations; and personal anecdotes and observations to document the fast pace and wide scope of global warming. He presents, with alarming clarity and conclusiveness and with humor, too that the fact of global warming is not in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be disastrous if left unchecked. This riveting new book written in an accessible, entertaining style will open the eyes of even the most skeptical." 325 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1.

Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900, Alfred W. Crosby
2 Alfred W. Crosby Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900
Cambridge University Press 232555 USA 1991 0521336139 / 9780521336130 Softcover Very Good Condition People of European descent form the bulk of the population in most of the temperate zones of the world - North America, Australia and New Zealand. The military successes of European imperialism are easy to explain; in many cases they were a matter of firearms against spears. But as Alfred Crosby explains in his highly original and fascinating book, the Europeans' displacement and replacement of the native peoples in the temperate zones was more a matter of biology than of military conquest. 368 pages.

Pyramids of Life - Illuminations of Nature's Fearful Symmetry, John Reader, Harvey Croze
5 John Reader, Harvey Croze Pyramids of Life - Illuminations of Nature's Fearful Symmetry
J. B. Lippincott 227774 Philadelphia, USA First Edition 0397011512 / 9780397011513 Hardcover Very Good Very Good Whatever the outward appearance, nothing in nature is entirely random. There is a natural law through which Harvey Croze and John Reader have identified pyramids of life, relationships which bind together many different species of animals and plants. These pyramids or patterns are repeated a thousand times over as basic forces which determine the order of life on earth. Using the African ecosystem as its model, Croze and Reader's book selects examples from every level of existence, and takes into account both the increasing interference of man in recent years and the emerging science of complex adaptive systems. It is a structured and fascinating exploration of the beauties and mysteries of the living world. Illustrated with more than three hundred photographs, Pyramids of Life is an indispensable guide for all those with an interest in ecology and conservation and a beautifully designed portrait of African wildlife and nature. 222 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Foreword by Niko Tinbergen. 222 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

The Future Eaters - An Ecological History of The Australasian Lands and People, Tim Flannery
8 Tim Flannery The Future Eaters - An Ecological History of The Australasian Lands and People
Reed Books 240720 Australia 1995 0730104877 / 9780730104872 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition This is the story of how human beings have consumed the resources they need for their own future. It examines the original "future eaters" who were the first people to leave the Afro-Asian homeland and travel down the chain of islands to Australasia and became the Aboriginal, Maori and other Polynesian peoples. They changed the flora and fauna in ways that seem inconceivable. The book then continues on to discuss how Europeans have made an even greater impact and how today "future eating" is a universal occupation. 423 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs.

The Silent Deep: The Discovery, Ecology and Conservation of the Deep Sea, Tony Koslow
9 Tony Koslow The Silent Deep: The Discovery, Ecology and Conservation of the Deep Sea
UNSW Press 235383 Australia 2007 0868404152 / 9780868404158 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine This title is written by one of the world's leading deep-sea ecologists. It presents a comprehensive and highly readable natural history of the world's deep seas, from the pitch black of the abysmal sea floor and its Lilliputian fauna to the murky zones of the mid-ocean depths, home to some of the world's most bizarre life forms. The book contains more than 80 illustrations and 16 pages of colour plates. Most of the colour photos have not been previously published. It describes the unique and profuse ecosystems of the ocean's depths - many only discovered in the past 20 years - including those of the cold-water coral reefs on the sides of sea mounts and the extraordinary ecosystems that develop around whale carcasses as they decompose on the ocean floor. It considers how Man's activities are now affecting the hitherto pristine ocean depths - a new and largely unregulated economic frontier for deep-sea fishing, mining and oil extraction. It takes a timely looks at climate change and suggests that its effects may already be heralding a new ecological order on the ocean floor. Title will be supported by a full media campaign. It combines history, ecology and conservation. It is the story of the discovery of the deep sea, of Mankind's unfolding understanding of the deep. Tony Koslow synthesizes the rapidly developing field of deep-sea ecology with an overview of the current crisis in deepwater conservation, created by expanding, largely unregulated deepwater fisheries, and points the way toward a global solution. 270 pages.
