Biodiversity by Edward O Wilson( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in English and held by 1,619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important book for scientists and nonscientists alike calls attention to a most urgent global problem: the rapidly accelerating loss of plant and animal species to increasing human population pressure and the demands of economic development. Based on a major conference sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences and the Smithsonian Institution, Biodiversity creates a systematic framework for analyzing the problem and searching for possible solutions

Science, evolution, and creationism by National Academy of Sciences (U.S.)( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 946 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, a group of experts assembled by the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine explain the fundamental methods of science, document the overwhelming evidence in support of biological evolution, and evaluate the alternative perspectives offered by advocates of various kinds of creationism, including "intelligent design." Science, Evolution, and Creationism explores the many fascinating inquiries being pursued that put the science of evolution to work in preventing and treating human disease, developing new agricultural products, and fostering industrial innovations. The book also presents the scientific and legal reasons for not teaching creationist ideas in public school science classes." "Mindful of school board battles and recent court decisions, Science, Evolution, and Creationism shows that science and religion should be viewed as different ways of understanding the world rather than as frameworks that are in conflict with each other and that the evidence for evolution can be fully compatible with religious faith. For educators, students, teachers, community leaders, legislators, policymakers, and parents who seek to understand the basis of evolutionary science, this publication will be an essential resource."--Jacket

Science and creationism : a view from the National Academy of Sciences by National Academy of Sciences (U.S.)( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the mechanisms of evolution are still under investigation, scientists universally accept that the cosmos, our planet, and life evolved and continue to evolve. Yet the teaching of evolution to schoolchildren is still contentious. In Science and Creationism, The National Academy of Sciences states unequivocally that creationism has no place in any science curriculum at any level. Briefly and clearly, this booklet explores the nature of science, reviews the evidence for the origin of the universe and earth, and explains the current scientific understanding of biological evolution. This edition includes new insights from astronomy and molecular biology. Attractive in presentation and authoritative in content, Science and Creationism will be useful to anyone concerned about America's scientific literacy: education policymakers, school boards and administrators, curriculum designers, librarians, teachers, parents, and students
The hydrogen economy : opportunities, costs, barriers, and R & D needs by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Academies' National Research Council appointed the Committee on Alternatives and Strategies for Future Hydrogen Production and Use in the fall of 2002 to address the complex subject of the "hydrogen economy." In particular, the committee carried out these tasks: Assessed the current state of technology for producing hydrogen from a variety of energy sources; Made estimates on a consistent basis of current and future projected costs, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and energy efficiencies for hydrogen technologies; Considered scenarios for the potential penetration of hydrogen into the economy and associated impacts on oil imports and CO2 gas emissions; Addressed the problem of how hydrogen might be distributed, stored, and dispensed to end uses -- together with associated infrastructure issues -- with particular emphasis on light-duty vehicles in the transportation sector; Reviewed the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) research, development, and demonstration (RD & D) plan for hydrogen; and Made recommendations to the DOE on RD & D, including directions, priorities, and strategies. - Executive summary

Adviser, teacher, role model, friend : on being a mentor to students in science and engineering by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide is meant to assist mentors and advisors in understanding how they might help students identify and respond to the challenges of becoming scientists or engineers. The guide--intended for faculty members, teachers, administrators, and others who advise and mentor students of science and engineering--attempts to summarize features that are common to successful mentoring relationships. The goal is to encourage mentoring habits that are in the best interests of both parties in the relationship. The chapters define mentoring, explain the different roles the mentor plays with students (faculty advisor, career advisor, skills consultant, role model), makes recommendations for improving the quality of mentoring, and provides resources. Within each chapter, the text contains steps to improve mentoring, examples of poor and good mentoring, the context of mentoring, a sample of nonacademic careers in science and engineering, and chapter summaries. (Contains 50 references.) (Ask)

Personnel needs and training for biomedical and behavioral research : the 1978 report of the Committee by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

14 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report for 1977 is the third in a series of annual reports prepared by the Committee on a Study of National Needs for Biomedical and Behavioral Research Personnel in a continuing study. Discussed are the current status of the labor market and the near-term outlook for research personnel in the four broad areas into which the study is organized: basic biomedical sciences, behavioral sciences, clinical sciences, and health services research. Research training needs and issues in nursing research are covered for the first time. Specific recommendations are made about the numbers of individuals to be supported by the research training programs of the National Institutes of Health, the Alcohol, Drug Abuse and Mental Health Administration, and the Health Resources Administration. Firm recommendations are made for fiscal year (fy) 1979 and tentative goals for fy 1980-81. Of special interest are the results of a survey of a sample of 14,300 of the country's younger biomedical and behavioral scientists, a discussion of the situation of minorities and women in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, and recommendations for some of the policies and administrative aspects of the National Research Service Award Act program.

In the light of evolution by John C Avise( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Human Condition is a collection of papers by leading evolutionary biologists and philosophers of science that reflect upon the Darwinian Revolution as it relates to the human condition at levels ranging from the molecular to the theological. The book focuses on understanding the evolutionary origin of humans and their biological and cultural traits. The Human Condition is organized into three parts: Human Phylogenetic History and the Paleontological Record; Structure and Function of the Human Genome; and Cultural Evolution and the Uniqueness of Being Human. This fourth volume from the In the Light of Evolution (ILE) series, based on a series of Arthur M. Sackler colloquia, was designed to promote the evolutionary sciences. Each volume explores evolutionary perspectives on a particular biological topic that is scientifically intriguing but also has special relevance to contemporary societal issues or challenges. Individually and collectively, the ILE series interprets phenomena in various areas of biology through the lens of evolution, addresses some of the most intellectually engaging as well as pragmatically important societal issues of our times, and fosters a greater appreciation of evolutionary biology as a consolidating foundation for the life sciences
