Bioarchaeology and Behavior: The People of the Ancient Near East by Megan A. Perry
English | 2012 | ISBN: 0813042291 | 212 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Bioarchaeology and Behavior: The People of the Ancient Near East
While mortuary ruins have long fascinated archaeologists and art historians interested in the cultures of the Near East and eastern Mediterranean, the human skeletal remains contained in the tombs of this region have garnered less attention. In Bioarchaeology and Behavior, Megan Perry presents a collection of essays that aim a spotlight on the investigation of the ancient inhabitants of the circum-Mediterranean area.

Composed of eight diverse papers, this volume synthesizes recent research on human skeletal remains and their archaeological and historical contexts in this region. Utilizing an environmental, social, and political framework, the contributors present scholarly case studies on such topics as the region's mortuary archaeology, genetic investigations of migration patterns, and the ancient populations' health, disease, and diet. Other key anthropological issues addressed in this volume include the effects of the domestication of plants and animals, the rise of state-level formations, and the role of religion in society. Ultimately, this collection will provide anthropologists, archaeologists, and bioarchaeologists with an important foundation for future research in the Near East and eastern Mediterranean.

Australian Beetles, Volume 1: Morphology, Classification and Keys

FREEDownload : Australian Beetles, Volume 1: Morphology, Classification and Keys

Australian Beetles: Morphology, Classification and Keys (Australian Beetles Series) by John F. Lawrence, Adam Slipinski
2013 | ISBN: 0643097287 | English | 520 pages | PDF | 215 MB

Australian Beetles, Volume 1: Morphology, Classification and Keys
This three-volume series represents a comprehensive treatment of the beetles of Australia, a relatively under-studied fauna including many unusual and unique lineages found nowhere else on Earth. The biology and morphology for all major beetle lineages is described and illustrated, and the revised identification keys (currently recognized as one of the most valuable keys worldwide) will aid quarantine agents, biologists and students in identifying members of the most species-rich order of animals. A large section on the adult and larval morphology of beetles and a chapter on the fossil record are also included.

Volume 1 updates and expands Lawrence & Britton's out-of-print Australian Beetles, with improved keys to all beetle families found in Australia, expanded family diagnoses as well as modern classification and additional illustrations. The introduction to beetle morphology and anatomical terms clarifies characters and terminology used in the keys; few other resources for beetle identification include such a detailed morphological background.

Volume 2 is due Fall 2015 and Volume 3 is expected in 2017.

Key Features:
* An updated, expanded version of the popular, out-of-print Australian Beetles, with improved keys to all beetle families found in Australia, expanded family diagnoses as well as modern classification and additional illustrations

* The introduction to beetle morphology and anatomical terms clarify characters and terminology used in the keys; few other resources for beetle identification include such a detailed morphological background

Soft Target Hardening: Protecting People from Attack by Jennifer Hesterman
2014 | ISBN: 1482244217 | English | 321 pages | PDF | 17 MB

Soft Target Hardening: Protecting People from Attack
Terrorist attacks occur daily and are increasingly being aimed at civilian populations around the world. Battlefield lines have been redrawn to include churches, schools, hospitals, and malls. This breach of moral boundary is shocking and invokes fear-two primary goals of terrorism.
Although there is an increase in soft target activity-or attacks on places of worship, study, and leisure-there is hesitation to explore such susceptibility in the United States. starts the national dialogue by providing case studies, best practices, and methodologies for identifying soft target vulnerabilities and reducing risk in the US. Offering deterrence and mitigation techniques from more than 275 sources, this comprehensive book:

Explores US cultural nuances contributing to the country turning a psychological blind eye toward soft target threats
Assesses the attractiveness of soft target threats presented by foreign and domestic terror groups and drug trafficking organizations
Analyzes the unique vulnerabilities of churches, schools, hospitals, malls, sporting and recreational events, and other soft targets
Gives an overview of soft target hardening tactics from global hotspots, including first-person accounts and photographs
Introduces the concept of effects-based hardening, derived from the military model of effects-based operations
Discusses emerging soft target challenges such as insider threats, kidnapping, and use of human shields
Evaluates the likelihood of the use of weapons of mass destruction against civilian-centric venues
is a must read for those who secure, own, and operate soft target facilities, and for citizens who want to protect themselves and their families from attack.

Atomically-Precise Methods for Synthesis of Solid Catalysts

FREEDownload : Atomically-Precise Methods for Synthesis of Solid Catalysts

Atomically-Precise Methods for Synthesis of Solid Catalysts by Sophie Hermans and Thierry Visart de Bocarme
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1849738297 | 316 pages | PDF | 14 MB

Atomically-Precise Methods for Synthesis of Solid Catalysts
There is much interest in preparing catalysts with specific structures for a desired catalytic activity. Although there has been a great amount of research into correlating particles sizes and microstructure to catalytic activity, knowledge about practical catalysts still remain ill-defined. The current challenge is now to understand atomic control.

provides an overview of recent developments in heterogeneous catalysts preparation which aim at controlling the microstructure of such catalysts at the atomic scale. Each chapter provides a different synthetic approach to achieve atomic-scale control along techniques to characterize the atomically-precise solids. Topics covered include bimetallic supported catalysts from single-source precursors zeolite-supported molecular metal complex catalyst, surface organometallic chemistry, atomic layer deposition and electron microscopy of catalysts.

Edited by active researchers in the area, the book aims to bridge the gap between surface science and heterogeneous catalysis. The book is suitable for graduate students as well as researchers in academia in industry from various disciplines including engineering, inorganic/organometallic chemistry, surface science and physical chemistry interested in catalyst design.
