About ourselves; a survey of human nature from the zoological viewpoint by James G Needham( Book )

9 editions published between 1941 and 2014 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a book about ourselves, individually and collectively. We are something more ethereal than "featherless bipeds" and something more substantial than "such stuff as dreams are made on." Substance and action at least are observable and a vast deal of knowledge has become available in recent years to those who seek it. I have endeavored to assemble and to present in simple untechnical form some of the basic zoological facts that must be taken into account in any penetrating study into the nature of human kind. This book is an exposition of human nature, without any plans for its improvement. The lack of such plans is due to my fear that Mother Nature would not be very regardful of them; that she will go right along making our successors after her regular patterns, and that they will continue to behave very much as we have done. I present herewith a very condensed statement of some of the contributions of zoology to the knowledge of the nature of our species, together with some suggestions as to the relation of these matters to the organization and operations of society. The limitations of space have demanded that the facts be stated broadly, and without much heed to exceptions. In the following pages there is little that is new, but the classification of the components of social behavior and of the instincts that serve the needs of our mind is my own"--Preface.

The life of inland waters; an elementary text book of fresh-water biology for students by James G Needham( Book )

14 editions published between 1916 and 2015 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First paragraph of preface: In the following pages we have endeavored to present a brief and untechnical account of fresh-water life, its forms, its conditions, its fitnesses, its associations and its economic possibilities. This is a vast subject. No one can have detailed first hand knowledge in any considerable part of it. Hence, even for the elementary treatment here given, we have borrowed freely the results of researches of others. We have selected out of the vast array of material that modern limnological studies have made available that which we deem most significant

Introducing insects : a book for beginners by James G Needham( Book )

8 editions published between 1940 and 1961 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preface: This book is intended for people who want a little information about common insects, presented in language that any one can understand. Here is the information that most concerns an ordinary citizen, with all the technicalities left out. The insects are called by their common names. With the aid of good pictures, something is told of what they are like and where they are found and what they do in the world. The way to control the pests among them is told in simple and practical terms, with stress upon the necessity of knowing their life history and habits. The vulnerable points in the life history are discovered in the search for such knowledge. Then some aid is offered the beginner who wishes to know insects better and to enjoy something mopre of their beauty and infinite variety by doing a little collecting of them. Many a good naturalist has started his career by making a collection of insects. The concluding pages are intended for those beginners who may desire through their own collecting activities to reach the threshold of entomological science
