Tree : a life story by David Suzuki( Book )

37 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the story of a single tree, from the moment the seed is released from a cone until, more than five hundred years later, the tree lies on the forest floor as a nurse log, giving life to ferns, mosses, and hemlocks, even as its own life is ending." "The book also looks at the tree's rich and complex relationships with other organisms in its community, from fungi and lichen to other trees to pileated woodpeckers, spotted owls, cougars, grizzly bears, and salmon, among many others. In addition, the book shows how a humble tree connects us to the atmosphere, the underworld of soil, and the world's oceans, as well as linking us all the way back to the origins of the universe and life and far into the future. Finally, the authors place their tree within the context of the growth of botany and events going on in the larger world during one tree's lifetime."--Jacket

The David Suzuki reader by David Suzuki( )

27 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing from Suzuki's published and unpublished writings, this collection reveals the underlying themes that have informed his work for more than three decades. In these essays, Suzuki explores the limits of knowledge and the connectedness of all things; looks unflinchingly at the destructive forces of globalization, political shortsightedness, and greed; cautions against blind faith in science, technology, politics, and economics; and provides inspiring examples of how and where to make those changes that will matter to all of us and to future generations. He also offers a vision of hope based on our love of children and nature."--Jacket

I am by Tom Shadyac( Visual )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don't know who Tom Shadyac is? As a writer and a director, Shadyac first unleashed Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Nutty Professor remake on the world, and then a string of film fiascoes, but that's all behind him now. A bike accident left him with a host of debilitating maladies and brought him to the verge of suicide, so he took stock of his life and set out on a quest to answer some of life's greatest questions. What's wrong with the world? How do we go about fixing it? Is the fundamental nature of man essentially benevolent or cruel? So he traveled around, enlisting the aid of what he calls "significant minds"--Journalists, scientists, spiritual leaders, scholars-- to understand life's essential questions. "I Am" is his documentary about this quest

29 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Suzuki and Holly Dressel show us how human mismanagement threatens the health of our children and the safety of our food supply, throwing into sharp relief the worldwide dynamics of trade, finance, culture and science. With fresh examples and analyses throughout and a completely new introductory chapter, they further explore the alarming rise of globalization and the ever-burgeoning escalation of multinational corporate power, while shedding greater light on the pitfalls and problems of biotechnology." "But this book isn't just a catalogue of how humans are relentlessly damaging the planet's air, soil and water and precipitating biodiversity collapse; it's also a clarion call to action that highlights how individuals everywhere - from anti-globalization protesters to farmers challenging the pervasiveness of industrially manipulated seeds and foods - are trying to alter the perilous course we seem to have set for ourselves."--BOOK JACKET
The big picture : reflections on science, humanity, and a quickly changing planet by David Suzuki( )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Looks beyond our environmental problems to examine the forces that prevent real change from occurring.

The secret of life : redesigning the living world by Joseph S Levine( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and Dutch and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

DNA's power is global - it has orchestrated the history of life on earth for three and a half billion years. Yet its touch is intimate - it determines your chances of getting cancer, the amount of cholesterol in your father's blood, and the color of your daughter's eyes. Over the past three decades, advances in our knowledge of DNA have transformed our understanding of the living world and reached into every corner of biological research. Already the rewards of this new biology have been extraordinary - genetically engineered crops, a deeper understanding of evolutionary theory, and nearly every advance in the struggle against AIDS. But molecular biology, through abilities that draw us ever closer to "playing God" with DNA, also raises awesome ethical and moral questions that didn't exist a half-century ago. The Secret of Life takes both the newly curious and the seasoned biology reader on a guided tour of this ongoing scientific revolution and its impact on our daily lives. Biologist and science writer Joe Levine and geneticist David Suzuki reveal how scientists' ability to crack and manipulate the genetic code - learning which genes do what and how - is transforming medicine, especially the treatment of inherited diseases. They show us how this knowledge is leading to experimental treatments such as gene therapy - molecular surgery with the power to cure and alter the next generation. They introduce us to the brave new world of "designer" plants and transgenic animals like Tracy (a ewe whose genetically altered mammary glands secrete valuable proteins into her milk), and to the controversies over altering these living creatures for human benefit. And they examine the contentious field of human behavioral genetics, asking whether it is reasonable to suggest that genes can fine-tune subtle aspects of personality and be linked to complex conditions such as alcoholism and schizophrenia. Through tales of scientific discovery, personal case studies, engaging histories, and careful scrutiny of both the facts and misconceptions behind the headlines, the authors explore the ethical and political challenges presented by the power of this new science. A companion to the acclaimed 8-part PBS television series, their book expands on the issues presented in the series while retaining its accessible style. In an age when science informs the most personal choices in our lives, The Secret of Life prepares readers to act as knowledgeable citizens in debates that demand the widest possible participation

Pebbles to computers : the thread by Hans Blohm( Book )

9 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the connexions that link and pattern the story of humanity's attempt to understand its experience. If we could not organise our perceptions so as to interpret them, then our cosmos would seem to be random and meaningless. The need to organise and analyse is one of the characteristics that make us human. Our responses to that need make up the history of thought. The story of computation, from the earliest use of pebbles to the most sophisticated modern circuits, is one of the central themes in the story of human endeavour, but this book is more than a history. Here the insights of the artist, the philosopher and the scientist are brought together in a unique conjunction. Like a prismatic lens they reveal colours and planes that are otherwise hidden from sight. -- from dust jacket
