Desk reference to nature's medicine by Steven Foster( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before formal science enabled a systematic approach to medicine, healers used plants to alleviate pain, ease the symptoms of diseases, and treat complaints of every kind. Today, people still use medicinal plants, in traditional roles or as building blocks for new research and innovative drugs. Featuring 350 full-color photographs, botanical drawings, and maps, this book is based on the work of botanical experts and presents alphabetically arranged, illustrated entries for hundreds of plants. Each is described, with full details of its physical appearance and medicinal uses; its origins and geographic distribution, how it's harvested and used in conventional and alternative medicine, and a range map. There are also sidebars on everything from ancient folklore to the latest research.--From publisher description

Battle of the dinosaur bones : Othniel Charles Marsh vs. Edward Drinker Cope by Rebecca L Johnson( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Darwin's theory of evolution, published in 1859, shook up the field of paleontology, the study of ancient plants and animals. Othniel Charles Marsh and Edward Drinker Cope, enthralled with these new ideas, discoveries, and developments, became determined to become world-famous paleontologists. When they met in 1863, they started off as friends. But within a few years, competition drove them apart. Each fought bitterly to discover more fossils, name more species, and publish more papers than the other. In their haste to outdo each other, they both produced some shoddy work. The resulting confusion took many years to correct, and their toxic relationship crippled the field of paleontology for decades afterward. However, the competition also produced a wealth of fossils, laying a firm foundation for future paleontologists and supporting Darwin's theory, as well as generating keen public interest in prehistoric life.--From publisher description
