Aquatic Life Aquariums
Simon Courtauld's beautifully written musings from "The Spectator" extolling the virtues of fish, poultry and feathered game are gathered into one elegant volume.
Seals, otters, oysters, fish, pelicans, and sharks are a few of the animals that make up an ocean food web. But did you know that almost all ocean creatures depend on algae to live? Or that bacteria, crabs, and lobsters break down dead plants and animals into nutrients? See ocean food webs in action in this fascinating book.
This good-looking little book presents how to enjoy the best of Italian food, understand what is offered, and order in an Italian restaurant or street market. Complementing the Blue Guides classic Italian cultural guidebook range as preparation for and accompaniment to any visit to Italy, it offers comprehensive coverage from pizza and gelato to rare regional delicacies and fine wine, along with separate sections on such subjects as seasonal food, Mediterranean fish, Italian wines and aperitifs, and star chefs. A phrasebook-divided into 'what it means' (Italian into English, including a glossary) and 'how to ask for' (English into Italian)-will make up most of the book. Supplemented with historical information on, for example, Roman banquets or Renaissance food, plus stylish black-and-white line drawings, this guide is suitable as a gift as well as a handy reference book for the traveler's on-site use. Assembled by the Blue Guides authors and editorial team, with many years of cumulative experience visiting and eating well throughout the length and breadth of Italy.
It is difficult and laborious not only for the beginner but also for the advanced researchers to survey literature and to appreciate former studies properly. To enable both to do this, the book is compiled. Purpose of the book covers karyotypes, which have been reported since the latest book on fish karyotypes (Klinkhardt et al. 1995), and following points are informed. 1. synonym of the species is checked based on Eschmeyer (2009, Catalog of Fishes) and a current classification of higher taxa follows Nelson (2006, Fishes of the World). 2. When the current species names differ from those in original karyotype papers, both names are listed. 3. Genome size is added. According to Gregory (http: //www.genomesize.com/), genome sizes determined by different methods are differentiated. 4. As for the arm number, NF1 and NF2 are differentiated. M and SM are defined as two arm chromosomes in NF1, while M, SM, and ST are defined as two arm chromosomes in NF2. 5. Sex chromosomes, B chromosomes, and ploidy are checked. 6. The ancestral chromosome number (ACN), which is defined as diploid chromosome number of the latest common ancestor and inferred from Robertsonian transformation, is proposed. As the largest group of extant vertebrates, fishes offer an almost limitless number of striking examples of evolutionary adaptation to environmental and biotic selection pressure. The book is useful for verifying plausibility of phylogeny based on gene trees, for the study on relationships between karyotypes and biogeography, and for the study on relationships between karyotypes and biodiversity
Indian Food Folklore contains over 100 authentic Indian recipes, a detailed introduction outlining the history and traditions of food in India, as well as a glossary providing information on traditional Indian ingredients.
