Alfred Russel Wallace : a life by Peter Raby( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography of Wallace traces the development of one of the most remarkable scientific travelers, naturalists, and thinkers of the nineteenth century. Peter Raby reveals his subject as a courageous, unconventional explorer and a man of exceptional humanity. He draws more extensively on Wallace's correspondence than has any previous biographer and offers a revealing yet balanced account of the relationship between Wallace and Darwin. Wallace lacked Darwin's advantages. A largely self-educated native of Wales, he spent four years in the Amazon in his mid-twenties collecting specimens for museums and wealthy patrons, only to lose his finds in a shipboard fire in the mid-Atlantic. He vowed never to travel again. Yet two years later he was off to the East Indies on a vast eight-year trek where he discovered countless species and identified the point of divide between Asian and Australian fauna, 'Wallace's Line.' After his return, he plunged into numerous controversies and published regularly until his death at the age of ninety, in 1913. He penned a classic volume on his travels, founded the discipline of biogeography, promoted natural selection, and produced a distinctive account of mind and consciousness in man

The floating egg : episodes in the making of geology by Roger Osborne( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La quatrième de couverture indique : "" - Etant donné, Dr Buckland, qu'il s'agit là d'ossements tropicaux, et que nous habitons un pays du Nord, il semble évident que ces vestiges furent transportés vers nos latitudes par les flots du Déluge universel. - Alors vous méritez d'amples félicitations, Dr Young. - C'est très aimable à vous. J'en déduis que vous êtes pleinement d'accord avec mon interprétation des faits? - Quelques détails m'amènent à douter de cette conclusion." Et voilà le célèbre et charismatique géologue William Buckland, menant une enquête magistrale sur l'origine des ossements improbables de Kirkdale. Mais aussi William Smith, l'ingénieur qui découpait l'Angleterre pour creuser des canaux, et découvrit par quel jeu subtil - et fossile - histoire de la vie et histoire de la Terre se répondent. Mais voilà encore ces falaises de schiste, d'où une industrie minière va faire s'échapper des hôtes spectaculaires. Ou cette météorite, frappant le champ d'un dandy et dévastant des siècles de certitudes. Autant d'épisodes extraordinaires et truculents, tous survenus depuis le XVIIe siècle dans une petite partie du Yorkshire, et faussement indépendants car une lame de fond les traverse, bouleversant notre perception du monde, et dont naîtra une science: la géologie."

Lisa Kallisto is one of those overworked, overscheduled mothers who never secures enough sleep at night. After getting her three kids off to school, working all day as the manager of a charitable animal shelter and taking care of her household, she's lucky to get a few minutes to herself. So when her daughter's friend Lucinda turns up missing after she was supposed to spend the night at Lisa's home, Lisa is full of blame and self-loathing. And she's not the only one who finds herself at fault: Most of Lucinda's family, the police and even her own husband, Joe, think Lisa should have paid more attention to what the two young teens were doing. Now, it looks like the kidnapper, who has already abducted one other girl, is at it again, and Lisa is trying to put the pieces together. So is Joanne Aspinall, an investigator with the local police in the small English town where both Lisa's and Lucinda's families live, and Joanne's finding that things are growing more and more curious as the pieces to the puzzle refuse to fit together
