Biology by Numbers ;  An Encouragement to Quantitative Thinking  An Encouragement to Quantitative Thinking, Burton, Richard F.
8 Burton, Richard F. Biology by Numbers ; An Encouragement to Quantitative Thinking An Encouragement to Quantitative Thinking
Cambridge University Press 1998 0521576989 / 9780521576987 Softcover Fine 
Softcover in Fine condition " This textbook is both an introduction to quantitative biology and a guide for the number-shy. Richard Burton fosters a sense of the fundamental importance and usefulness of mathematical principles in biology, with a fascinating range of examples. The book is geared toward the nonmathematician, and covers the basics as well as various more advanced topics from many diverse biological disciplines. Questions and calculations encourage active participation without holding up the casual reader. A key feature is the structure of the book. Rather than building it around biological disciplines, Dr. Burton emphasizes the common ways of reasoning used in areas as diverse as insect and population growth, seed mortality, and sensory response.

17 Fabre, Jean Henri; Stawell; Rodolph Fabre's Book of Insects: retold from Alexander Teixeira de Mattos' Translation of "Souvenirs Entomologiques" by Mrs. R. Stawell
[New York] Tudor Publishing Company 1921 Sixth Printing Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket Illustrated by Detmold, Edward Julius

Jacket is lightly worn at the corners. Uncommon in the original illustrated cover box, now worn on the corners, bottom split at the side, remains moderately attractive and serviceable. In Fine unmarked in Fine jacket with Protective cover. Pp [14], 271. Frontispiece and 11 full color tipped in plates. Fabre's Bookof Insects is a retelling of Alexander Teixeira de Mattos' translation of Jean-Henri Fabre's Souvenirs entomologique, a project that Matto considered his greatest achievement. Fabre's work is a series of texts on insects and arachnids. It talks about insects in real life, mythology and folklore. He influenced the later writings of Charles Darwin, who called Fabre "an inimitable observer". Fabre, however, was a Christian who remained sceptical about Darwin's theory of evolution, as he always held back from all theories and systems. His special force was exact and detailed observation, field research, always avoiding premature general conclusions from his observations. ; 8vo
