With an extensive catalog at its heart, Prehistoric Life profiles hundreds of fascinating species in incredible detail. The story starts in earnest 3.8 billion years ago, with the earliest-known form of life on Earth, a bacteria that still exists today, and journeys through action-packed millennia, charting the appearance of new life forms as well as devastating extinction events. Of course, the ever-popular and endlessly intriguing dinosaurs feature large, but Prehistoric Life gives you the whole picture, and the plants, invertebrates, amphibians, birds, reptiles, and mammals that are the ancestors of today´s species also populate its pages, making this book unprecedented in its coverage of prehistory. Specially commissioned artworks use cutting-edge technology to render species in breathtakingly realistic fashion, with astonishing images of prehistoric remains, such as skeletons and fossils, to complete the story. To put all the evidence in context, the concept of geological time is explored, as is the classification of species and how the evidence for their evolution is preserved and can be deciphered.
Following on from its hugely successful launch in 1999, Collins Bird Guide -- the ultimate reference book for bird enthusiasts -- now enters its second edition. With expanded text and additional colour illustrations, the second edition of the hugely successful Collins Bird Guide is a must for every birdwatcher. The book provides all the information needed to identify any species at any time of the year, covering size, habitat, range, identification and voice. Accompanying every species entry is a distribution map and illustrations showing the species in all the major plumages (male, female, immature, in flight, at rest, feeding: whatever is important). In addition, each group of birds includes an introduction which covers the major problems involved in identifying or observing them: how to organise a sea watching trip, how to separate birds of prey in flight, which duck hybrids can be confused with which main species. These and many other common birdwatching questions are answered.The combination of definitive text, up-to-date distribution maps and superb illustrations, all in a single volume, makes this book the ultimate field guide, essential on every bookshelf and birdwatching trip.

According to the American Heritage dictionary, a serial killer is ´´a person who attacks and kills victims one by one in a series of incidents.´´ Often, people don´t take a deep look into what a serial killer is or does, and why America is struggling with so many of these offenders. If people looked at types of serial killers, their motives, and their victims, everyone could create shared meaning of the exact definition of a serial killer. In this audiobook, I examine quite a few serial killers and what I refer to as ´´fledgling serial killers,´´ in order to give the listener a bird´s eye view into the killer´s past, which most vary in some way or another, to possibly understand why these men and women become the monsters they do. Will we ever really understand the serial killer? Now that, my friends, is a question for the ages. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Korbid Thompson.

The ultimate guide to animal flatulence: the perfect gift for anyone who has ever farted. Dogs do it. Millipedes do it. Dinosaurs did it. You do it: I do it. Octopuses don´t (and nor do octopi). Spiders might do it: more research is needed. Birds don´t do it, but they could if they wanted to. Herrings do it to communicate with each other. At the beginning of 2017, an innocent question on Twitter about snakes formed the hashtag #doesitfart and spread pungently across the Internet - and major newspapers - as dozens of experts weighed in on which animals do and don´t fart, and if they do, how much, how often, what it´s made of, what it smells like and what it´s for. Does It Fart? is the result: the fully authoritative, fully illustrated guide to animal flatulence, covering the habits of 80 animals in more detail than you ever knew you needed. What foods make hyena farts smell especially bad? What is a fossa, and does it fart? Why do clams vomit but not fart? What is a fart, anyway? With contributions from dozens of biologists, Does It Fart? is a book that will allow you to shift the blame onto all kinds of unlikely animals for years to come. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Hemple.
