The Darien Gap is a place of legend. The only break in the Pan-American highway, which runs from Alaska to the tip of South America, it is an almost impregnable strip of swamp, jungle and cloud forest between the vast landmasses of North and South America. Stories of abduction and murder there are rife and in recent years more people have successfully climbed Everest or trekked to the South Pole than have crossed the Darien Gap. In 2000, Tom Hart Dyke, a young botanist, set off to Central America with one thing on his mind: orchids. He knew that in order to find the rare and beautiful species he so fervently admired, he would have to visit some of the most inhospitable places on earth. Unbeknown to Tom, another young explorer, Paul Winder, was backpacking through the area at the same time. Though he sometimes worked freelance in the City of London, Paul was a fearless and intrepid traveller, happier scaling volcanoes than lounging on beaches. In every bar and cafe along his route, rumours abounded of the Darien Gap - and the more he heard, the greater became his desire to make the journey. Pure chance brought Paul and Tom together in northern Mexico; they formed an instant bond and their fate was sealed. Ignoring a final, succinct warning from the Lonely Planet guide - 'Don't even think about it!' - Tom and Paul set off into the Darien: Tom in search of orchids, Paul in search of adventure. They would find plenty of each. For six days they made good progress. Then, just hours away from Colombia, the dream ended and the horror began. Paul and Tom were ambushed by FARC guerrillas who were to hold them hostage for the next nine months. From that day on, their survival was a matter of extraordinary endurance, incredible ingenuity and not a little good luck ...

every page, that makes The Cloud Garden one of the strangest and

To Tom Harte, for whom food is a consuming passion, questions like these are not half-baked. For 10 years he has been writing culinary reflections on such matters for the Southeast Missourian, the largest newspaper between St. Louis and Memphis. The cream of this reflective crop, covering topics as diverse as Peeps and pate a choux, and their attached recipes are included in this volume. Some of the essays delve into the history of food, like the one about lebkuchen, arguably the oldest cookie in the world. Others, dealing with culinary queries and curiosities, attempt to explain the nomenclature of food or the logic behind common recipe conventions. Still others pay homage to great gourmets like Thomas Jefferson, August Escoffier, or Julia Child, or to great ingredients like butter and brown sugar. He also includes a culinary exam and a lesson on how to write a recipe. Whether he's championing the virtues of funnel cake or recounting his experiences judging a national pie contest, Harte is often whimsical, always informative, and never uninteresting. His over-200 carefully selected recipes will be a welcome addition to anyone's files.
Even though an understanding of experimental design and statistics is central to modern biology, undergraduate and graduate students studying biological subjects often lack confidence in their numerical abilities. Allaying the anxieties of students, Introduction to Statistics for Biology, Third Edition provides a painless introduction to the subject while demonstrating the importance of statistics in contemporary biological studies.
New to the Third Edition

- A general template for carrying out statistical tests from hypothesis to interpretation
- Worked examples and updated Minitab analyses and graphics
- A CD-ROM that contains a free trial version of Minitab
Using Minitab throughout to present practical examples, the authors emphasize the interpretation of computer output. With its nontechnical approach and practical advice, this student-friendly introductory text lays the foundation for the advanced study of statistical analysis.
The Living Dead, (aka "Zombies") have begun to rise from the dead and violently and indiscriminately attack and eat the living. Within weeks, society has collapsed entirely. Small groups of human beings survive: holed-up in schools, hospitals, and shopping malls, desperately fighting to stay alive. Only a few things are known about these "Zombies": - They desperately crave the flesh and brains of the living. - They may only be killed by destroying their brains, via a bullet, incineration, or other extreme trauma. - They possess only a rudimentary intelligence, and seem to operate on instinct and very dim memories of their prior life. - Any person who dies will become a zombie within hours of their death. Those bitten by a zombie will become ill and eventually become zombies as well. 42 cartoonists from around the world have come together in 144 pages of raw, black & white comix, to describe this terrific sequence of events.
