Africa Ediz inglese tedesca e francese
Many have tried to convey the true spirit of Africa's animals in words, photography, or in music. There may be no challenge greater; Africa's fauna are vast in number and rich in diversity. In this finely crafted collection, French photographer Laurent Baheux uses the medium of black-and-white photography to capture the intricate details of both the wondrous beasts and the magnificent settings in which they dwell. This wide-ranging volume lays particular emphasis on his subjects' individual spirits--revealing all of their vulnerability while losing nothing of their raw vitality. Every photograph is so carefully composed and well lit that the details equal the evocative precision of an Old Masters portrait. Through Baheux's eyes we get close to the creatures that will both inspire and humble us all.
Cheetah cubs play and purr just like kittens. Someday they'll be able to run faster than any other animal in the world. Read along as cheetah cubs leap and grow in this book.

Tigers of the World
The second edition of Tigers of the World explores tiger biology, ecology, conservation, management, and the science and technology that make this possible. In 1988, when the first edition was published, tiger conservation was still in its infancy, and two decades later there has been a revolution not only in what is known, but how information about tigers is obtained and disseminated. In the fast changing world of conservation, there is a great need to summarize the vast and current state-of-the-art, to put this into historical perspective, and to speculate in what yet remains to be done. Tigers of the World, 2e fulfills this need by bringing together in a unique way the world’s leading tiger experts into one volume. Despite the challenges ahead, there are bright spots in this story and lessons aplenty not only for tiger specialists but large carnivore specialists, conservation biologists, wildlife managers, natural resource policymakers, and most importantly the caring public. *Examines the past twenty years of research from the world’s leading tiger experts on biology, politics, and conservation. *Describes latest methods used to disseminate and obtain information needed for conservation and care of this species. *Includes coverage on genetics and ecology, policy, poaching and trade, captive breeding and farming, and the status of Asia’s last wild tigers. *Excellent resource for grad courses in conservation biology, wildlife management, and veterinary programs. *New volume continues the classic Noyes Series in Animal Behavior, Ecology, Conservation and Management.
At the dawn of his reign, a young king confronts his destiny—and must prove his greatness . . . or lose a realm Arthur is King—but treachery runs rampant throughout the beleaguered Isle of the Mighty. Darkest evil descends upon Britain’s shores in many guises. Fragile alliances fray and tear, threatening all the noble liege has won with his wisdom and his blood. His most trusted counselor—the warrior, bard and kingmaker whom legend will name Merlin—is himself to be tested on a mystical journey back through his own extraordinary past. So in a black time of plague and pestilence, it is Arthur who must stand alone against a great and terrible adversary. For only this way can he truly win immortality—and the name to treasure above all others: PENDRAGON “Though Lawhead brilliantly creates an authentic and vivid Arthurian Britain, he never forsakes the sense of wonder that has graced the legend throughout the ages.”—Publishers Weekly
Poised between poetry, surrealism and a smile, Chema Madoz reveals a world in which the absurd observes us at every moment. His photos contain the world in a small envelope or a tiny wooden box. They have as their subject objects stripped of their primary function. Behind their usual appearance, their strangeness is revealed and makes us question what is normal. Chema Madoz was born January 20, 1958, in Madrid. His work, known throughout the world, was finally recognized in 1991 with the Kodak Prize for European Photography.
Fierce Friends: Artists and Animals, 1750-1900 examines a critical period in our evolving relationship with animals. Between the mid-eighteenth and the early twentieth centuries, the philosophical legacy of the Enlightenment, the mechanical inventions of the Industrial Revolution, and the intellectual transformation sparked by Charles Darwin undermined many of the traditional roles assigned to animals, and overturned our view of them as physically, mentally - and divinely - separated from humans. This book interweaves the history of science and of art in an account of how humans came to understand and appreciate their shared biological ancestry. Fierce Friends explores how painters, sculptors, illustrators, and ceramists reflected contemporary changes in the perception of animals, incorporating in their work the latest developments in geographical exploration and comparative anatomy, advances in geology and the birth of paleotology, the enthusiasm of amateur naturalists, and the impact of evolution theory. It identifies the importance of illustrators such as Audubon, who were frequently at the forefront of natural history discoveries, and reveals the visionary artists who drew imaginatively on Darwin's theory of natural selection to create mythical beasts. Artists as diverse as Hogarth, Oudry, Gericault, Delacroix, and Van Gogh here demonstrate mankind's increasing awareness of animals as sentient creatures, infusing genres such as animalier painting and portraiture with new meaning and emotional power.
