An extensive introduction places the work in context as it examines the history of "Rhododendron" classification and gives a full survey of plant structures throughout the many species. Species are listed in systematic order, so that similar species occur close to each other in the text. These are fully described, including complete citations of previous references and notes on the occurrence of wild-origin specimens in cultivation. Beautiful photographs include close-up shots of flower and leaf, microscope images of leaf surfaces, and easy-to-use diagnostic keys, making this the indisputable volume for plant identification. A milestone in the identification of rhododendrons, this will become an essential reference for botanists, nurserymen, and enthusiasts.

The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic -- a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.++++The below data was compiled from various identification fields in the bibliographic record of this title.

Practical Plant Identification is an essential guide to identifying flowering plant families (wild or cultivated) in the northern hemisphere. Details of plant structure and terminology accompany practical keys to identify 318 families into which flowering plants are currently divided. Specifically designed for practical use, the keys can easily be worked backwards for checking identifications. Containing descriptions of families and listings of the genera within, it also includes a section on further identification to generic and specific levels. A successor to the author's bestselling The Identification of Flowering Plant Families, this new guide is fully revised and updated, and retains the same concise user-friendly approach. Cullen skillfully leads the reader from restrictive disciplines of older taxonomy, into an era of increasing numbers of plant families defined by DNA analysis. Aimed primarily at students of botany and horticulture, this is a perfect introduction to plant identification for anyone interested in plant taxonomy.

Generation Y and the World of Work - A Report into the Workplace Needs, Attitudes and Aspirations of Generation Y (Paperback):... Generation Y and the World of Work - A Report into the Workplace Needs, Attitudes and Aspirations of Generation Y (Paperback)

Generation Y - those people born between 1983 and 1995 - is now moving into senior management and leadership roles around the world. Many from Generation Y (Gen Y) have grown up in relatively turbulent times and lived through significant economic and political change, and all have experienced huge advances in technology and the communication channels they use on a daily basis. This generation will have the economic future of the world in its hands, but what is it that makes them tick in the workplace? What will motivate Gen Y employees and help businesses attract and retain them? How can you best work with them and lead them? This book examines the views, opinions and aspirations of more than 13,000 18-30-year-olds across 13 countries and four regions of the world. The research explores several key areas related to their work and careers. Specifically, we wanted to know what attracts Generation Y people to a potential employer and what makes them stay in a job. We asked what they look for in an ideal boss and what they regard as markers of success in their careers. We explored their attitudes to changing jobs and starting their own businesses. And, we asked about their use of social media, which is transforming the way people communicate at work and in their leisure time. The findings show that, while there are common themes within this fascinating generation, there are also huge differences when it comes to what motivates them in the workplace, some of which constitute regional or national trends. For some, access to wealth-creating opportunities is a priority, while, for others, the opportunity to help make the world a better place is of greater importance. Some have a strong entrepreneurial streak and wish to build businesses, while others are driven by the opportunity for personal development. Any business manager or HR professional whose workforce relies on Generation Y employees needs to understand them. Being able to identify their motivations and desires in the countries and regions in which you operate is crucial to attracting and retaining these people. No one approach is universally successful. This book explores these differences, with detailed country and regional reports, assessing the implications for organisations and helping business leaders shape appropriate and effective employee value propositions and talent strategies.
