The Agamben Dictionary
Agamben's vocabulary is both expansive and idiosyncratic, with words such as "infancy", "gesture" and "profanation" given specific and complex meanings that can bewilder the new reader. Bringing together leading scholars in the field, including Thanos Zartaloudis (Birkbeck, University of London), Kevin Attell (Cornell University) and Catherine Mills (The University of Sydney) the 150 entries explain the key concepts in Agamben's work and his relationship with other thinkers, from Aristotle to Aby Warburg.

Ecology of Australian Temperate Reefs: The Unique South by Scoresby Shepherd, Graham J. Edgar
2014 | ISBN: 148630009X | English | 520 pages | PDF | 13 MB

Ecology of Australian Temperate Reefs: The Unique South
Ecology of Australian Temperate Reefs presents the current state of knowledge of the ecology of important elements of southern Australian sub-tidal reef flora and fauna, and the underlying ecological principles.

Preliminary chapters describe the geological origin, oceanography and biogeography of southern Australia, including the transitional temperate regions toward the Abrolhos Islands in the west and to Sydney in the east. The book then explains the origin and evolution of the flora and fauna at geological time scales as Australia separated from Antarctica; the oceanography of the region, including principal currents, and interactions with on-shelf waters; and the ecology of particular species or species groups at different trophic levels, starting with algae, then the ecological principles on which communities are organized.

Ecology of Australian Temperate Reefs is well illustrated with line drawings, figures and color plates showing the many species covered, and will be a much valued reference for biologists, undergraduates, and those interested and concerned with reef life and its natural history.

Key Features:
* Well illustrated with line drawings, figures and color plates to illustrate the many species discussed
* Includes accounts of geological origin, biogeography and the oceanography of the region, including principal currents, and interactions with on-shelf waters

Neurobiology of Monotremes: Brain Evolution in Our Distant Mammalian Cousins

Neurobiology of Monotremes: Brain Evolution in Our Distant Mammalian Cousins by Ken Ashwell
2014 | ISBN: 0643103112 | English | 536 pages | PDF | 43 MB

Neurobiology of Monotremes: Brain Evolution in Our Distant Mammalian Cousins
The monotremes are an unusual and evolutionarily important group of mammals showing striking behavioral and physiological adaptations to their niches. They are the only mammals exhibiting electroreception (in the trigeminal sensory pathways) and the echidna shows distinctive olfactory specializations. This book brings together current information on the development, structure, function and behavioral ecology of the monotremes.

The author aims to close the current gap in knowledge between the genes and developmental biology of monotremes on the one hand, and the adult structure, function and ecology of monotremes on the other. He explores how the sequence “embryonic structure › adult structure › behavior” is achieved in monotremes and how this differs from other mammals. The work also combines a detailed review of the neurobiology of monotremes with photographic and diagrammatic atlases of the sectioned adult brains and peripheral nervous system of the short-beaked echidna and platypus. Pairing of a detailed review of the field with the first published brain atlases of two of the three living monotremes will allow the reader to immediately relate key points in the text to features in the atlases and will extend a universal system of brain nomenclature developed in eutherian brain atlases by G. Paxinos and colleagues to monotremes.

Begins with the Oboe: A History of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra by Richard S. Warren
The Toronto Symphony Orchestra has been a part of the arts scene in Toronto for eighty years. Richard Warren, the orchestra's archivist since 1976, uncovers taped interviews and other documentation of the orchestra's musicians, visiting artists, music directors, and administrative personnel, to present an insider's view of the orchestra, and by doing so makes the history of this great cultural institution come alive.
In describing the challenges, achievements, and trials of the orchestra, Warren includes the stories of artists who performed with the orchestra and who then went on to become outstanding performers on the world stage, including Seiji Ozawa, Sir Andrew Davis, Jon Vickers, Lois Marshall, Maureen Forrester, Zara Nelsova, and Ben Heppner, among many others. He also recounts the orchestra's tours through China, the United States, Britain, Japan, Australia, and Europe, and their performances in the renowned theatres of London, New York, Sydney, Vienna, and Berlin. The symphony has become an icon of Canadian culture and enriched the lives of Torontonians and all Canadians as an important part of our heritage.
