A Hideous Monster of the Mind – American Race Theory in the Early Republic
In post examination analysis, the Kenya National Examinations Council perennially reports dismal scores in biology and specifically in the topic of ecology. Efforts by the government to improve the pedagogical approaches in biology through in-service courses has yielded less results. Ecology as a topic does not only enable students to pass biology examination well, but also help them maintain a healthier and more productive biosphere for both humans and other living organisms. Despite knowledge of the importance of ecology, a high number of misconceptions are reported among both teachers and students. This book provides insight on the effect the mind mapping technique on learning of ecology concepts. Mind Maps effectively manages knowledge by fine tuning the learning and evaluation process that invokes high thinking order of the student. This subsequently enhances achievement. The book should be useful to teachers of biology and biology teacher trainers in diversifying pedagogical...

Owls of the United States and Canada – A Complete Guide to Their Biology and Behavior
The present study was undertaken to gather baseline information on the ecology and behavior of Indian peafowl in an agro-ecosystem. The data were collected on the following aspects: habitat utilization pattern, vocalization and courtship behavior and food and feeding habits.The study was conducted in the outskirts of Aligarh town (27° 30' N, 79° 40'E).Four distinct types of habitat could be distinguished on the basis of differences in the vegetation.The habitats were preferred in the following order: scrub>open barren land> crop fields>plantation.Among the roosting trees, Albizzia lebbeck and Dalbergia sissoo were the preferred tree species. Vocalization pattern showed seasonal variation and the variation seems to be related to breeding activity. They preffered to eat the following wild herbs :Dichanthium annulatum, Pluchea lanceolata, Achyranthes aspera and Panicum antidotale. The limiting factor for the population under study was probably the availability of...

From Animals to Animats 5 – Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Simulation of Adaptive Behavior
In Bagua and Tai Chi, noted teacher Bruce Frantzis demonstrates through these two important practices what is required to develop and embody high levels of chi flow. Inside the slow-motion movements of tai chi is a sophisticated mind/body/spirit practice. Derived from the I Ching (Book of Changes), bagua is unique in its circular movements, spiraling energy, and unpredictable changes of direction. Frantzis begins with an overview of both bagua and tai chi and their origins in Chinese culture, followed by comprehensive advice on how to incorporate these practices into daily Western life. Written in an easy, conversational style, the book provides an explanation of an art that is practiced by millions in China to release stress and maintain a vigorous level of health. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), the 2.3 million Americans who currently practice tai chi report improved sleep, conditioning, and overall wellness. Bagua and Tai Chi...
Failure of the Founding Fathers – Jefferson, Marshall, and the Rise of Presidential Democracy
A textbook must provide, first and foremost, information to assist the reader in better understanding the topic. Second, it ought to provide the information in a way that can be easily accessed and digested, and it needs to be credible. Textbooks that have gone through multiple editions continue to improve as a result of reviewers' comments and readers' feedback, and this one is no exception. Looking back over the efforts associated with this Fifth Edition, the old wedding custom of "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" comes to mind. We have built upon the solid foundation of previous editions, but then added "something new." It almost goes without saying that we have "borrowed" from others in that we both cite and quote examples of program evaluation studies from the literature. "Something blue" . . . well, we're not sure about that.
