A Primer of Ecological Genetics:Auflage 2004 Daniel L. Hartl, Jeffrey K. Conner
This book is a collection of 165 fundamental quotes and aphorisms of Theodore Roosevelt: ´´Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.´´ ´´The worst of all fears is the fear of living´´ ´´Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell ´am, ´Certainly I can!´ Then get busy and find out how to do it.´´ ´´Americanism is a question of principle, of idealism, of character. It is not a matter of birthplace, or creed, or line of descent.´´ ´´If you´ve got them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow.´´ ´´In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.´´ ´´The government is us; WE are the government, you and I.´´ ´´Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.´´
This book covers basic concepts in population and quantitative genetics, including measuring selection on phenotypic traits. The emphasis is on material applicable to field studies of evolution focusing on ecologically important traits. Topics addressed are critical for training students in ecology, evolution, conservation biology, agriculture, forestry and wildlife management. Many texts in this field are too complex and mathematical to allow the average student to grasp the key concepts. A Primer of Ecological Genetics, in contrast, employs mathematics and statistics-fully explained, but at a less advanced level-as tools to improve understanding of biological principles. Integration of the different chapters of the book shows students how diverse concepts relate to each other.

By the widely celebrated New York Times best-selling author of Last Call - the powerful, definitive, and timely account of how the rise of eugenics helped America close the immigration door to ´´inferiors” in the 1920s.A forgotten, dark chapter of American history with implications for the current day, The Guarded Gate tells the story of the scientists who argued that certain nationalities were inherently inferior, providing the intellectual justification for the harshest immigration law in American history. Brandished by the upper-class Bostonians and New Yorkers - many of them progressives - who led the anti-immigration movement, the eugenic arguments helped keep hundreds of thousands of Jews, Italians, and other unwanted groups out of the US for more than 40 years.Over five years in the writing, The Guarded Gate tells the complete story from its beginning in 1895, when Henry Cabot Lodge and other Boston Brahmins launched their anti-immigrant campaign. In 1921, Vice President Calvin Coolidge declared that ´´biological laws” had proven the inferiority of Southern and Eastern Europeans; the restrictive law was enacted three years later. In his characteristic style, both lively and authoritative, Okrent brings to life the rich cast of characters from this time, including Lodge’s closest friend, Theodore Roosevelt; Charles Darwin’s first cousin, Francis Galton, the idiosyncratic polymath who gave life to eugenics; the fabulously wealthy and profoundly bigoted Madison Grant, founder of the Bronx Zoo, and his best friend, H. Fairfield Osborn, director of the American Museum of Natural History; Margaret Sanger, who saw eugenics as a sensible adjunct to her birth control campaign; and Maxwell Perkins, the celebrated editor of Hemingway and Fitzgerald. A work of history relevant for today, The Guarded Gate is an important, insightful tale that painstakingly conn 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Okrent.

After his acclaimed stand-alone best seller The Two Minute Rule, Robert Crais returns with the eagerly awaited new Elvis Cole and Joe Pike novel. For Elvis and Joe, two of the most beloved characters in crime fiction, the action is getting a little close to home. The dangerous and enigmatic Joe Pike has always defied close examination, but in this breathtaking new thriller, that´s all about to change. Joe Pike owes a bad man a big favour. And the favor is to protect the life of Larkin Conner Barkley, a spoiled rich girl who happens to be a federal witness in a case against the mob. When Pike and the girl come under intense fire, he hatches a plan: disappear into the anonymous underbelly of Los Angeles, turn the table, and hunt down the hunters. Enlisting the help of Elvis Cole, Pike uncovers a web of lies and betrayals; even the cops aren´t who they seem. But as the body count rises, it becomes clear that Pike´s biggest threat may be the girl herself - a vapid soul determined to destroy herself, unless Joe can fill the void in her bruised heart. 1.

Our purpose and main concern in writing this book is to illuminate classical concepts from the noncommutative viewpoint, to make the language and techniques of noncommutative geometry accessible and familiar to practi tioners of classical mathematics, and to benefit physicists interested in the uses of noncommutative spaces. Same may say that ours is a very ´´com mutative´´ way to deal with noncommutative matters; this charge we readily admit. Noncommutative geometry amounts to a program of unification of math ematics under the aegis of the quantum apparatus, i.e., the theory of ope rators and of C -algebras. Largely the creation of a single person, Alain Connes, noncommutative geometry is just coming of age as the new century opens. The bible of the subject is, and will remain, Connes´ Noncommuta tive Geometry (1994), itself the ´´3.8-fold expansion´´ of the French Geome trie non commutative ( 1990). Theseare extraordinary books, a ´´tapestry´´ of physics and mathematics, in the words of Vaughan jones, and the work of a ´´poet of modern science,´´ according to Daniel Kastler, replete with subtle knowledge and insights apt to inspire several generations.
