Desert Lake: Art, Science and Stories from Paruku
Desert Lake is a book combining artistic, scientific and Indigenous views of a striking region of north-western Australia. Paruku is the place that white people call Lake Gregory. It is Walmajarri land, and its people live on their Country in the communities of Mulan and Billiluna.

This is a story of water. When Sturt Creek flows from the north, it creates a massive inland Lake among the sandy deserts. Not only is Paruku of national significance for waterbirds, but it is has also helped uncover the past climatic and human history of Australia.

The Walmajarri people of Paruku understand themselves in relation to Country, a coherent whole linking the environment, the people and the Law that governs their lives. These understandings are encompassed by the Waljirri or Dreaming and expressed through the songs, imagery and narratives of enduring traditions. Desert Lake is embedded in this broader vision of Country and provides a rich visual and cross-cultural portrait of an extraordinary part of Australia.

The Cactus Family by Edward F. Anderson
English | Mar 16, 2001 | ISBN: 0881924989 | 776 Pages | PDF | 147 MB
Only now, at the beginning of the new millennium, is there an up-to-date, comprehensive study of the cactus family. This long-awaited, monumental work covers the Cactaceae in an encyclopedic manner, addressing 125 genera and 1810 species. The most comprehensive single resource on the subject available today, it includes more than 1000 color photographs in addition to other illustrations. The introduction to each genus concentrates on the discovery of the cacti, and the improvements in our understanding of them, many of which result from relatively recent investigation.

The Cactus Family by Edward F. Anderson
As stated in the foreword, "Cacti have a special fascination all their own. Miniature spiny dwarf cacti less than an inch in diameter are hidden in the arid regions of North and South America; the majestic columns of the giant saguaro, Carnegiea gigantea, dominate the deserts of Arizona. Yet all these cacti, given time, offer the surprising paradox of brilliant flowers, their delicacy a striking contrast to the strong spines that keep the viewer at a respectful distance." This remarkable diversity is fully described and illustrated in this authoritative encyclopedia, which is both scientifically accurate and readable. It also includes a chapter by Roger Brown on the cultivation of cacti, making the book even more useful to growers and hobbyists, as well as to taxonomists, ethnobotanists, and conservationists—indeed, anyone interested in succulent plants.

Faunal Heritage of Rajasthan, India: Conservation and Management of Vertebrates

FREEDownload : Faunal Heritage of Rajasthan, India: Conservation and Management of Vertebrates

Faunal Heritage of Rajasthan, India: Conservation and Management of Vertebrates By B.K. Sharma, Seema Kulshreshtha, Asad R. Rahmani
2013 | 550 Pages | ISBN: 3319013440 | PDF | 22 MB

Faunal Heritage of Rajasthan, India: Conservation and Management of Vertebrates
This is the first ever monumental and scientific documentation of the faunal wealth of the Indian Desert state of Rajasthan. This volume, the second of two, provides a comprehensive picture of the conservation efforts undertaken to prevent further degradation of the condition of Rajasthan’s faunal wealth. A scholarly contribution to the field of knowledge, it provides novel and vital information on wildlife preservation initiatives in India’s largest state. Broadly falling under the Indo-Malaya Ecozone, the three major biomes of Rajasthan include deserts and xeric shrublands, tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests, and tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forests. The corresponding ecoregions to the above biomes are, respectively, the Thar Desert and northwestern thorn scrub forests, the Khathiar-Gir dry deciduous forests, and the Upper Gangetic Plains moist deciduous forests. Contrary to popular belief, the well-known Thar or Great Indian Desert occupies only a part of the state. Rajasthan is diagonally divided by the Aravalli mountain ranges into arid and semi-arid regions. The latter have a spectacular variety of highly diversified and unique yet fragile ecosystems comprising lush green fields, marshes, grasslands, rocky patches and hilly terrains, dense forests, the southern plateau, fresh water wetlands, and salt lakes. Apart from the floral richness, there is faunal abundance from fishes to mammals. In this volume, the various flagship and threatened species are described in the 20 chapters penned by top notch wildlife experts and academics. The world famous heronry, tiger reserves, wildlife sanctuaries and some threat-ridden biodiversity-rich areas shall certainly draw the attention of readers from around the world.

Dunes: Dynamics, Morphology, History by Andrew Warren
English | 2013-05-28 | ISBN: 1444339699, 1444339680 | PDF | 236 pages | 5,7 MB

Dunes: Dynamics, Morphology, History
The field of investigation into dunes is one that has developed rapidly over recent years as a result of advanced technology and increased levels of understanding. The literature on this subject however, has failed to keep pace with these developments, and Dunes is the first book in over a decade to incorporate the latest research in what is a very active field.

Dunes discusses the shapes, sizes, patterns, distribution, history and care of wind-blown dunes. It covers all aspects of dunes, terrestrial and in the Solar System, and provides a comprehensive investigation of the process of sand movement, dune dynamics, dune patterns, dunes in deserts and on coasts, in the past and in the Quaternary, and the management of dunes.

Within the text, Warren discusses the range of skills now focused on dunes, giving consideration to mathematical modelling; improved instrumentation for the measurement of sand movement in the field and in the wind tunnel; the analysis of remotely-sensed images; dating techniques, especially those dependent on thermoluminescence; stratigraphy and pedology. The result is a complete and relevant overview of the very latest developments in dune studies.

Grunts: Inside the American Infantry Combat Experience, World War II Through Iraq [Repost]

John C. McManus – Grunts: Inside the American Infantry Combat Experience, World War II Through Iraq
Published: 2010-08-03 | ISBN: 0451233417, 0451227905 | EPUB + MOBI | 528 pages | 4 MB

A sweeping narrative of six decades of combat, and an eye-opening account of the evolution of the American infantry.
From the beaches of Normandy and the South Pacific Islands to the deserts of the Middle East, the American soldier has been the most indispensable- and most overlooked-factor in wartime victory. In Grunts, renowned historian John C. McManus covers six decades of warfare, examining ten critical battles-from the Battle of the Bulge to counterinsurgency combat in Iraq-where the skills and courage of American troops proved the crucial difference between victory and defeat.
Based on years of research and interviews with veterans, this powerful history reveals the ugly face of war in a way few books have, and demonstrates the fundamental, and too often forgotten, importance of the human element in serving and protecting the nation.
