Romanticism and animal rights by David Perkins( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In England in the second half of the eighteenth century an unprecedented amount of writing urged kindness to animals. This these was carried in many genres, from sermons to encyclopedias, from scientific works to literature for children, and in the poetry of Cowper, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Clare, and others. Romanticism and Animal Rights discusses the arguments writers used, and the particular meanings of these arguments in a social and economic context so different from the present. After introductory chapters, the material is divided according to specific practices that particularly influenced feeling or aroused protest: pet keeping, hunting, baiting, working animals, eating them, and the various harms inflicted on wild birds. The book shows how extensively English Romantic writing took up issues of what we now call animal rights. In this respect it joins the growing number of studies that seek precedents or affinities in English Romanticism for our own ecological concerns."--Jacket

The fungi have been major players in the molecular revolution that has transformed biology. Because they can be manipulated as microorganisms, yeast and Neurospora provide information that is difficult to acquire with plants and animals, and experimental findings with fungi often throw light on corresponding processes in plants and animals. The filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa has become a valuable model organism because of its favorable features for genetic analysis and because of the vast store of information that has been acquired during 75 years of research. This compendium provides re

Evaluation of Arizona's fatality rate by Mark A Flak( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A procedure is presented to estimate the State traffic fatality rate based on an alternative method of estimating statewide vehicle-miles of travel (VMT). The VMT model is based on fuel sales and a weighted miles-per-gallon (mpg) estimate for the state vehicle fleet. The weighted mpg value reflects vehicle mix by roadway functional classification, the driving environment, vehicle type mpg factors by vehicle model year, and a regional adjustment factor. The model considers four vehicle types and two roadway functional classifications each in the urban and rural travel environment. The model produced an estimate of 30,740 million VMT and a statewide fatality rate of 2.91 fatalities per hundred million vehicle miles for Arizona for 1985. The estimated VMT was 5 percent higher than the estimate generated by the existing State method, and significantly higher than the estimate based on the Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) data
