The Evolution of Anisogamy - A Fundamental Phenomenon Underlying Sexual Selection (Hardcover): Tatsuya Togashi, Paul Alan Cox The Evolution of Anisogamy - A Fundamental Phenomenon Underlying Sexual Selection (Hardcover)

Darwin identified the existence of separate male and female gametes as one of the central mysteries of evolutionary biology. 150 years later, the question of why male gametes exist remains an intriguing puzzle. In this, the first book solely devoted to the evolution of anisogamy, top theorists in the field explore why gamete dimorphism characterizes nearly all plants and animals. Did separate male and female gametes evolve as a result of competition, or does anisogamy instead represent selection for cooperation? If disruptive selection drove the evolution of anisogamy, with male gametes focused on search and fusion, and female gametes provisioning the new zygote, why do some algal species continue to produce gametes of a single size? Does sperm limitation, or escape from infection, better explain the need for extremely small, highly mobile sperm? Written by leaders in the field, this volume offers an authoritative and cutting-edge overview of evolutionary theory.

Plants, People, and Culture - The Science of Ethnobotany (Paperback, 2nd New edition): Michael J Balick, Paul Alan Cox Plants, People, and Culture - The Science of Ethnobotany (Paperback, 2nd New edition)
Michael J Balick, Paul Alan Cox
R1,125 Discovery Miles 11 250 Out of stock

Is it possible that plants have shaped the very trajectory of human cultures? Using riveting stories of fieldwork in remote villages, two of the world's leading ethnobotanists argue that our past and our future are deeply intertwined with plants. Creating massive sea craft from plants, indigenous shipwrights spurred the navigation of the world's oceans. Today, indigenous agricultural innovations continue to feed, clothe, and heal the world's population. One out of four prescription drugs, for example, were discovered from plants used by traditional healers. Objects as common as baskets for winnowing or wooden boxes to store feathers were ornamented with traditional designs demonstrating the human ability to understand our environment and to perceive the cosmos. Throughout the world, the human body has been used as the ultimate canvas for plant-based adornment as well as indelible design using tattoo inks. Plants also garnered religious significance, both as offering to the gods, and as a doorway into the other world. Indigenous claims that plants themselves are sacred is leading to a startling reformulation of conservation. The authors argue that conservation goals can best be achieved by learning from, rather than opposing, indigenous peoples and their beliefs. KEY FEATURES * An engrossing narrative that invites the reader to personally engage with the relationship between plants, people, and culture * Full-color illustrations throughout-including many original photographs captured by the authors during field work * New to this edition-Plants that Harm, a chapter that examines the dangers of poisonous plants and the promise that their study holds for novel treatments for some of our most serious diseases including Alzheimer's and substance addiction * Additional readings at the end of each chapter to encourage further exploration * Boxed features on selected topics that offer further insight * Provocative questions to facilitate group discussion Designed for the college classroom as well as for lay readers, this update of Plants, People, and Culture entices the reader with first-hand stories of fieldwork, spectacular illustrations, and a deep respect for both indigenous peoples and the earth's natural heritage.
