Savannas: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

Savannas: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) by Peter A. Furley
English | June 16th, 2016 | ASIN: B01H5L9EGC, ISBN: 0198717229 | 176 Pages | EPUB | 9.27 MB

Savannas form one of the largest and most important of the world's ecological zones. Covering one fifth of the Earth's land surface, they are home to some of the world's most iconic animals and form an extremely important global resource for plants and wildlife. However, increasing recognition of their land potential means that they are extremely vulnerable to accelerating pressures on usable land.

Moons: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

Moons: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) by David A. Rothery
English | November 26th, 2015 | ASIN: B016DTZR18, ISBN: 0198735278 | 176 Pages | EPUB | 4.50 MB

Proving to be both varied and fascinating, moons are far more common than planets in our Solar System. Our own Moon has had a profound influence on Earth, not only through tidal effects, but even on the behaviour of some marine animals. Many remarkable things have been discovered about the moons of the giant outer planets from Voyager, Galileo, Cassini, and other spacecraft. Scientists have glimpsed volcanic activity on Io, found oceans of water on Titan, and captured photos of icy geysers bursting from Enceladus. It looks likely that microbial life beyond the Earth may be discovered on a moon rather than a planet.

The eye is one of the most remarkable achievements of evolution, and has evolved up to 40 times in different parts of the animal kingdom. In humans, vision is the most important sense, and much of the brain is given over to the processing of visual information.

Water dominates the surface of Earth and is vital to life on our planet. It is a remarkable liquid which shows anomalous behaviour. In this Very Short Introduction John Finney introduces the science of water, and explores how the structure of water molecules gives rise to its physical and chemical properties.

Minerals: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

Minerals: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) by David Vaughan
English | October 23rd, 2014 | ASIN: B00NGO9E8Q, ISBN: 0199682844 | 160 Pages | EPUB | 3.53 MB

Minerals existed long before any forms of life, playing a key role in the origin and evolution of life; an interaction with biological systems that we are only now beginning to understand. Exploring the traditional strand of mineralogy, which emphasises the important mineral families, the well-established analytical methods (optical microscopy and X-ray diffraction) and the dramatic developments made in techniques over recent decades, David Vaughan also introduces the modern strand of mineralogy, which explores the role minerals play in the plate tectonic cycle and how they interact with the living world.
