Snakes in American Culture: A Hisstory

The literature on snakes is manifold but overwhelmingly centered on the natural sciences. Little has been published about them in the fields of popular culture or the history of medicine. Focusing primarily on American culture and history from the 1800s, this study draws on a wide range of sources--including newspaper archives, medical journals, and archives from the Smithsonian Institute--to examine the complex relationship between snakes and humans.

Кошки, собаки и… другие люди. Невыдуманные истории спасения

Книга, которую вы сейчас держите в руках, в некотором смысле уникальна. Темы любви к животным, внимательного и милосердного отношения к «тем, кого мы приручили», касались в своем творчестве многие авторы как прошлого, так и современности. Но уже очень давно взаимоотношения людей и «меньших братьев» не становились сквозной идеей для целого сборника увлекательных рассказов. Истории, рассказанные Светланой Сафоновой, чрезвычайно актуальны. Они происходят здесь и сейчас: в вашем дворе, за соседской дверью, на ближайшей улице. Любой из нас видел персонажей этих рассказов в обычной жизни, а возможно, и был одним из них. Легкость и динамичность повествования сочетаются в них с большой психологической достоверностью. Это и неудивительно, ведь в основе большинства историй лежат подлинные случаи из жизни отечественных зоозащитников. Благодаря всему этому книга не только захватывает с первых страниц, но и делает всех нас чуточку добрей. В нашей библиотеке вы можете бесплатно почитать книгу « Кошки, собаки и… другие люди. Невыдуманные истории спасения ». Чтобы читать онлайн книгу « Кошки, собаки и… другие люди. Невыдуманные истории спасения » перейдите по указанной ссылке. Приятного Вам чтения.

Placing Animals: An Introduction to the Geography of Human-Animal Relations (Human Geography in the Twenty-First Century: Issues and Applications)

As Julie Urbanik vividly illustrates, non-human animals are central to our daily human lives. We eat them, wear them, live with them, work them, experiment on them, try to save them, spoil them, abuse them, fight them, hunt them, buy and sell them, love them, and hate them. Placing Animals is the first book to bring together the historical development of the field of animal geography with a comprehensive survey of how geographers study animals today. Urbanik provides readers with a thorough understanding of the relationship between animal geography and the larger animal studies project, an appreciation of the many geographies of human-animal interactions around the world, and insight into how animal geography is both challenging and contributing to the major fields of human and nature-society geography. Through the theme of the role of place in shaping where and why human-animal interactions occur, the chapters in turn explore the history of animal geography and our distinctive relationships in the home, on farms, in the context of labor, in the wider culture, and in the wild.

Jellyfish: Ecology, Distribution Patterns and Human Interactions (Fish, Fishing and Fisheries)

Cnidarian jellyfish are among the most elegant and dazzling organisms inhabiting the global aquatic environment, due to their various and sometimes striking colours as well as their long and dense tentacle structures. Despite their extreme beauty, jellyfish are also considered as a very dangerous and venomous organism. Their genetic makeup provides them with batteries of intracellular capsules (nematocysts) produced by the Golgi apparatus of specialized cells (cnidocytes) from which the whole phylum Cnidaria takes the name (from the Greek �ʦ�?�Ħ�, which means "nettle"). As a matter of fact, some of these organisms are known as "sea nettles" and present a considerable amount of danger to bathers and sea-workers in several coastal zones around the world. Therefore, the occurrence of jellyfish blooms constitutes a serious threat from a sanitary and economical point of view, preventing humans from visiting beaches, coasts, and coastal waters by interfering with bathing and other recreational and vocational activities linked to the sea. In addition, the connection between jellyfish outbreaks and global environmental changes has been taken very seriously over the past few years. Indeed, human influence and worsening environmental conditions have induced many species to adapt to new situations, bringing about physiological and behavioural modifications. Notwithstanding these negative aspects, jellyfish are considered a resource to be exploited in the fields of drug discovery and as new prospects for human nutrition in countries where the use of such creatures as a food source is not traditional. This book aims to present an up-to-date view about the research on jellyfish by taking into account their ecological role, dynamics and distribution, health aspects and global implications connected to recurrent outbreaks, and the current and future prospects for utilization of these organisms in the fields of drug discovery, ecotoxicology and human nutrition.
