Vegetation and the Terrestrial Carbon Cycle - modelling the first 400 million years, Beerling, D.J. & Woodward, F.I.
2 Beerling, D.J. & Woodward, F.I. Vegetation and the Terrestrial Carbon Cycle - modelling the first 400 million years
Cambridge University Press 2001 0521801966 / 9780521801966 First Edition Boards Very Good 
Illustrated with charts and plans, large 8vo, pp x, 405, extremely clean internally, boards showing very slight signs of use. [Plants have colonised and modified the World's surface for the last 400 million years. In this book the authors demonstrate that an understanding of the role of vegetation in the terrestrial carbon cycle during this time can be gained by linking the key mechanistic elements of present day vegetation processes to models of the global climate during different geological eras. The resulting interactive simulations of climate and vegetation processes tie in with observable geological data, such as the distributions of coals and evaporites, supporting the validity of the authors' approach. Simulation of possible conditions in future centuries are also presented, providing valuable predictions of the status of the Earth's vegetation and carbon cycle at a time of global warming.]

Evolution and Ecology - the pace of life (Sir John Burnett's copy), Bennett, K.D
3 Bennett, K.D Evolution and Ecology - the pace of life (Sir John Burnett's copy)
Cambridge University Press 1997 9521399211 Paperback Good 
A few maps and charts within the text, octavo, pp xvi, 241, very clean internally, paperback, covers lightly creased, otherwise a very good copy. [From the library of Sir John Burnett, with his signature on the front endpaper. A distinguished academic career and a lifelong interest in fungi, botany and nature conservation made him the ideal champion for biological recording in the UK. He held that effective nature conservation could be achieved only if good quality information about species and their habitats was accessible to all who needed it - a belief that made him perfectly suited to run the National Biodiversity Network, founded in 2000. He was convinced that academics with high administrative posts must continue with some personal research, in his case on the myxomycetes.]

Baboon Metaphysics - the evolution of a social mind, Cheney, Dorothy L. & Seyfarth, Robert M.
8 Cheney, Dorothy L. & Seyfarth, Robert M. Baboon Metaphysics - the evolution of a social mind
The University of Chicago Press 2007 0226102432 / 9780226102436 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Good 
A few illustrations, large 8vo, pp x, 348, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [n 1838 Charles Darwin jotted in a notebook, "He who understands baboon would do more towards metaphysics than Locke.". Baboon Metaphysics is Dorothy L. Cheney and Robert M. Seyfarth’s fascinating response to Darwin’s challenge. Cheney and Seyfarth set up camp in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, where they could intimately observe baboons and their social world. Baboons live in groups of up to 150, including a handful of males and eight or nine matrilineal families of females. Such numbers force baboons to form a complicated mix of short-term bonds for mating and longer-term friendships based on careful calculations of status and individual need. But Baboon Metaphysics is concerned with much more than just baboons’ social organization—Cheney and Seyfarth aim to fully comprehend the intelligence that underlies it. Using innovative field experiments, the authors learn that for baboons, just as for humans, family and friends hold the key to mitigating the ill effects of grief, stress, and anxiety. Written with a scientist’s precision and a nature-lover’s eye, Baboon Metaphysics gives us an unprecedented and compelling glimpse into the mind of another species.]

10 Cronk, Quentin C.B.; Bateman, Richard M. & Hawkins, Julie A. Developmental Genetics and Plant Evolution (The Systematics Association Special Volume Series 65)
London Taylor & Francis 2002 0415257913 / 9780415257916 First Edition Paperback Very Good 
Large thick 8vo, a few illustrations, pp xvi, 542,fore-edge slightly marked, paperback, very slight signs of wear to the covers, but overall a very good copy. {A heavy book - extra postage may be needed}. [A benchmark text, Developmental Genetics and Plant Evolution integrates the recent revolution in the molecular-developmental genetics of plants with mainstream evolutionary thought. It reflects the increasing cooperation between strongly genomics-influenced researchers, with their strong grasp of technology, and evolutionary morphogenetists and systematists who are more deeply rooted in comparative biology and patterns of plant evolution. The book discusses our increasing understanding of gene function and expression, along with modern phylogenies. It integrates morphological and molecular data to highlight specific key transitions in plant evolution that warrant additional intensive study. Furthermore, it explores increasing knowledge of the physical expression of plant development from disciplines such as anatomy and paleobotany. Rather than focus on the technical aspects of plant genomics, this book provides genuinely integrated explanations of plant evolution. The distinguished panel of contributors has succeeded in capturing a demanding subject in an accessible volume for a wide range of professional botanists and students in developmental biology, applied molecular biology, molecular evolution, morphogenesis, organismal botany, and theoretical systematics.]
