Field Guide to the Moths of Great Britain and Ireland
This latest edition of the Field Guide to the Moths of Great Britain and Ireland has been fully revised, updated and restructured, bringing it in line with the latest thinking in taxonomy. Moths are illustrated in their natural resting postures, and there are also paintings of different forms, underwings and other details to help with identification. New descriptions and illustrations have been included for species that have been newly recorded in Britain and Ireland since the last edition of the guide was published. The text descriptions of all other species Â? covering field characters and similar species, flight season, life cycle, larval foodplants, and habitat Â? have been revised and updated where necessary, and particular attention has been paid to updating the distribution information, which is now supported by maps. The revised general introduction explains how the methods of identifying and recording moths have evolved over recent years with the advent of new technologies and as a result of data analysis.

Three boys, who made a pact to stick together through the rough times in their impoverished Newark neighborhood, found the strength to work through their difficulties and complete high school, college, and medical school together.
Soil and Plant Analysis for Forest Ecosystem Characterization
This handbook provides and overview of physical, chemical and biological methods used to analyze soils and plant tissue using an ecosystem perspective. The current emphasis on climate change has recognized the importance of including soil carbon as part of our carbon budgets. Methods to assess soils must be ecosystem based if they are to have utility for policy makers and managers wanting to change soil carbon and nutrient pools. Most of the texts on soil analyis treat agriculture and not forest soils and these methods do not transfer readily to forests because of their different chemistry and physical properties. This manual presents methods for soil and plant analysis with the ecosystem level approach that will reduce the risk that poor management decisions will be made in forests.
The Vintage Guide to Classical Music
Surveys the history of Western classical music, offers brief profiles of influential composers from Vivaldi to John Cage, and discusses important compositions and periods
This lavishly illustrated book chronicles the remarkable history of anatomical illustration from the Renaissance to the digital Visible Human project of today. Its survey of five and a half centuries of meticulous visual description by anatomists and artists will be a welcome addition to the libraries of artists, art students, doctors and anyone interested in the history of science.
Developing Advanced Assessment Skills
This book will help you to develop some of the essential assessment skills that are needed to support patients with long-term conditions in secondary and primary care settings. You may be at the beginning of your career, or you may be an experienced practitioner who is moving into long-term conditions care. At whatever level you may be, this book will give you some guidance on how to use appropriate assessment tools and to reflect on your experience from practice.Supporting patients with long-term conditions is not solely the domain of nursing. This book is intended to be suitable for a range of practitioners who are interested in developing their assessment skills further. However some examples have been given from a nursing perspective.The exercises throughout the book have been designed to encourage you to reflect on your practice and draw from the wide range of evidence that is available to support your development. You can work through them at your own pace and return to chapters that you need to learn more about.
Mathematics of Uncertainty
"Mathematics of Uncertainty" provides the basic ideas and foundations of uncertainty, covering the fields of mathematics in which uncertainty, variability, imprecision and fuzziness of data are of importance. This introductory book describes the basic ideas of the mathematical fields of uncertainty from simple interpolation to wavelets, from error propagation to fuzzy sets and neural networks. The book presents the treatment of problems of interpolation and approximation, as well as observation fuzziness which can essentially influence the preciseness and reliability of statements on functional relationships. The notions of randomness and probability are examined as a model for the variability of observation and measurement results. Besides these basic ideas the book also presents methods of qualitative data analysis such as cluster analysis and classification, and of evaluation of functional relationships such as regression analysis and quantitative fuzzy data analysis.
