Solomon, the legend goes, had a magic ring which enabled him to speak to the animals in their own language. Konrad Lorenz was gifted with a similar power of understanding the animal world. He was that rare beast, a brilliant scientist who could write (and indeed draw) beautifully. He did more than any other person to establish and popularize the study of how animals behave, receiving a Nobel Prize for his work. King Solomon's Ring, the book which brought him worldwide recognition, is a delightful treasury of observations and insights into the lives of all sorts of creatures, from jackdaws and water-shrews to dogs, cats and even wolves. Charmingly illustrated by Lorenz himself, this book is a wonderfully written introduction to the world of our furred and feathered friends, a world which often provides an uncanny resemblance to our own. A must for any animal-lover!

Ein Leben in einer Arche Noah. Berühmt geworden ist er als der »Gänsevater«: der Mediziner, Zoologe und Pionier der Verhaltensforschung Konrad Lorenz. Sein Haus war bevölkert von Wildgänsen, Kakadus, Singvögeln, Hunden, Kapuzineraffen und Fischen. Als Tierfreund und Wissenschaftler zugleich erzählt Konrad Lorenz voller Einfühlungsvermögen, unsentimental, selbstironisch, witzig und herzerwärmend von seinen Erlebnissen mit den Hausgenossen und verknüpft damit Beobachtungen, vielfältige Informationen und Betrachtungen darüber, wie Tiere wirklich sind und was Menschen im Umgang mit ihnen falsch machen.

Konrad Lorenz was the author of some of the most popular books ever published about animals, including the best-selling Man Meets Dog and King Solomon's Ring. On Aggression is one of his finest works, as well as the most controversial. Through an insightful and characteristically entertaining survey of animal behaviour, the Nobel Prize winner tracks the evolution of aggression throughout the animal world. He also raises some startling questions when he applies his observations of animal psychology to humankind. His conclusions caused an unprecedented controversy, culminating in a statement adopted by UNESCO in 1989 which appeared to condemn his work. Whether or not Lorenz actually claimed aggression is hard-wired into the human psyche, and that war is an inevitable result, is something readers can decide upon for themselves. However you react, there can be no doubting that in today's violent world this powerful work remains of paramount importance.

This engaging book presents some of the ways in which science can describe and explain how and why children develop in the way they do. It looks at children’s individual development within the development of our species, at genes, at the hormone systems that flood our bodies, at the neuroscience of children’s brains, and at patterns of behaviour. It looks, in other words, at the different influences on child development according to the scientific disciplines of evolutionary theory, genetics, epigenetics, endocrinology, neuroscience, epidemiology and psychology. Filled with entertaining anecdotes, Sara Meadows shares the story of what happens when we’re growing up, revealing how science can add depth to our understanding. This book will be an informative and enriching read for all parents, educators and carers, and those interested in how children develop to be emotionally balanced, socially skilled, and enthusiastic seekers after knowledge.

At this critical phase of its development, the resilience of this democratic nation remains in its commitment towards sustainable development, and economic prosperity without damaging the environmental and natural fabric of the nation, which is necessary for the well being of its diverse masses. However, sizable proportion of population is dependent on natural resources including forests. Under the changing scenario of economic, socio-cultural and developmental scene, ensuring the sustainability of natural resources particularly the availability of limited forest resources becomes a challenge for the sector. Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) becomes the necessity for the country looking to the dependency of rural poor on the forests for their livelihood. SFM incorporates the technical, ecological and economic aspects of the forestry as well as addresses the socio-economic and livelihoods of forest dwelling communities. Criteria and Indicators (C&I) approach being adopted by as many as 159 countries for achieving SFM. The C&I framework helps to define the SFM and continuously monitor the various interventions made to improve the forests. The book is devoted on this important aspect of the forestry sector of India and it is the first attempt of its kind on the theoretical and practical aspects of C&I for SFM. This book has made an attempt to help young persons who are studying SFM and other forestry subjects at college or universities to understand the concept and upgrade their knowledge on the subject. Throughout the book the complex subject has been made simple to understand. Part I gives an overview of the SFM, C&I for SFM in India. Part II describes the Biodiversity conservation and sustainability, Part III devoted to Economic valuation of forest resources, giving note of existing system of forest resource accounting and distortion in it and also on the proposed forest resource accounting suiting to forestry situation in India. Part IV to VI discusses the issues of Forest certification and need, Forest monitoring and evaluation system, and National strategy for SFM.
