The nature of natural history by Marston Bates( Book )

31 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic work is an exploration of what natural history is, and a sustained effort to see how it relates to other areas of biology. Marston Bates did not attempt to overwhelm his audience with facts or overinterpret those he did use, and, perhaps for this reason, The Nature of Natural History is a timeless work. The author's genuine interest in the tropics has a very current feeling, and the first ten or fifteen chapters of the work have a style that is parallel to that of David Attenborough's verbal presentations of nature. From the book: ""I have already made several remarks about the

Charles Darwin : an anthology by Charles Darwin( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although his name has become a household word after he published The Origin of the Species, a one-volume edition of his writings that covers the full gamut of his theoretical as well as scientific writings has not been available for many years. Charles Darwin: An Anthology, covers the heart of the five books for which the author is best known. This readable volume includes The Autobiography, The Voyage of the Beagle, The Origin of the Species, The Descent of Man, and The Expression of the Emotion. The volume also includes parts of Darwin's less well-known works. Although it was published last chronologically, The Autobiography is an ideal beginning to the volume. A new introduction by the noted anthropologist Lionel Tiger underlines the continuing importance of Darwin's thinking, and explains why it still influences contemporary scholarship in many fields. These selections have not been rewritten - they are pure Darwin. The dull and the unessential have been eliminated. What remains is material that best illustrates Darwin's most important and interesting ideas. The selection manages as well to retain his most readable prose, while presenting the fundamentals of Darwin's revolutionary thought. Collectively, the volume paints a picture of an immensely curious and indefatigable mind. This volume also includes a critical bibliography that will prove valuable to those interested in further reading
