The Soil (Collins New Naturalist Library, Book 77)
B. N. K. Davis,N. Walker,D. F. Ball

The soil is one of the great unsung disappearing resources, with over 100m tonnes being destroyed every year. This edition is exclusive to newnaturalists.com The soil is the work place of farmers and gardeners, but it is also a fascinating environment inhabited by insects that can leap into the air to a record height, multilegged scavengers that are vital to the decomposition of plant matter and the long, thin, entwining strands of thousands of species of fungi. Although soil plays a vital role in the functioning of the world, it has often been overlooked, mainly because it contains a huge range of different fields, all of which have become specialities in their own right. This book brings together specialists in these fields to give a broad overview of the staggering advances that have been made since Sir John Russel's The World Of Soil was published in this series in 1947. The first two chapters introduce the physical structure of the soil. The next four chapters deal with the specific animals and plants and how they exploit this environment. The final four chapters describe how these animals interact and how man has used and abused the soil in his striving to gain more and more from this resource.
Smart Swarm: Using Animal Behaviour to Organise Our World
Smart Swarm: Using Animal Behaviour to Organise Our World
Peter Miller,Don Tapscott
¥59.87
How Understanding Flocks, Schools and Colonies Can Make Us Better at Communicating, Decision Making and Getting Things Done. The modern world may be obsessed with speed and productivity, but twenty-first century humans actually have much to learn from the ancient instincts of swarms. A fascinating new take on the concept of collective intelligence and its colourful manifestations in some of our most complex problems, Smart Swarm introduces a compelling new understanding of the real experts on solving our own complex problems relating to such topics as business, politics, and technology. Based on extensive globe-trotting research, this lively tour from National Geographic reporter Peter Miller introduces thriving throngs of ant colonies, which have inspired computer programs for streamlining factory processes, telephone networks, and truck routes; termites, used in recent studies for climate-control solutions; schools of fish, on which the U.S. military modelled a team of robots; and many other examples of the wisdom to be gleaned about the behaviour of crowds-among critters and corporations alike. In the tradition of James Surowiecki's The Wisdom of Crowds and the innovative works of Malcolm Gladwell, Smart Swarm is an entertaining yet enlightening look at small-scale phenomena with big implications for us all.
Trouble in Paradise: Uncovering the Dark Secrets of Britain’s Most Remote Island
Trouble in Paradise: Uncovering the Dark Secrets of Britain’s Most Remote Island
Kathy Marks

A shocking exposé of the terrible secrets at the heart of the Pitcairn Island community – a tale of systematic child abuse and rape which stretches back over 40 years. Pitcairn Island – home to the descendants of the mutineers of the Bounty – has long been thought of as a tropical paradise. Wild and remote, it is Britain’s most isolated outpost and a fantasy destination for many. But in 1999, British police, alerted by unsettling reports of a rape, descended on the island. Their investigation developed into a major enquiry which revealed that Pitcairn was the site of widespread and horrific sexual abuse instigated by the island men on girls as young as twelve. Scarcely a man on the island was untainted by the allegations, and almost none of the women had escaped, though most residents feigned ignorance, even when their own daughters were abused. Abusers included the magistrates and police officers as well as brothers and uncles. Few of the victims were able to leave the island; those who did never went back. Kathy Marks was one of only six journalists permitted to live on the island while she reported on the ensuing trial and witnessed Pitcairn's domestic workings first-hand. In this riveting account she documents a society gone badly astray, leaving lives shattered, codes broken and a paradise truly lost.

Our knowledge of the stars is based on their apparent attributes, obtained from the astronomical observations. The object of astronomy is to deduce herefrom the real or absolute attributes of the stars, which are their position in space, their movement, and their physical nature.

They are not all at the same level. Earlier stages of cosmic life are characterized by intense heat; but as development of the moon progressed, original heat gradually radiated into space, leaving her surface finished. Evidently she has gone through experi ences some of which the earth may already have known, and through others still in our remote future. Matterhorn. the moon in 1647. Being so much smaller than the earth, as well as less in mass, our satellite cooled much faster than the parent planet. A few surface features are to be explained as due to the consequent shrinkage. Maps and Photographs of the Moon.--All the lunar mountains, plains, and craters are mapped and named; and astronomers are quite as familiar with 'Copernicus' and 'Eratosthenes' (a great crater, and a mountain nearly 16,000 feet high) as geographers are with Vesuvius and the Hevelius of Danzig made the first map...

These quotations show that he was struggling to see in the origin of species a process just as scientifically comprehensible as the birth of individuals. They show, I think, that he recognised the two things not merely as similar but as identical.

Vous êtes surprise, hein? Vous ne pensiez pas qu'en cette ville-ci on p?t voir une foule s'écraser, frémir de joie et battre des mains à d'autres spectacles que ceux de Buffalo-Bill, du Palais-Royal et de l'Olympia. C'est que nous avons, en effet, dans le monde, une très mauvaise réputation. Nous passons pour le plus frivole des peuples, à force de nous montrer accueillants à la frivolité des autres; et, parce que Paris est le refuge béni des fêtards de l'univers, on croit que ?la fête? est la seule chose qui importe aux Parisiens.

Chaque fois que s'ouvre à Paris un Salon d'art, un peintre de mes amis, qui sait mon go?t pour les ?images?, m'envoie le petit carton rose, ou vert, ou jaune, ou bleu qui confère à quelques milliers de ?privilégiés? le droit de venir admirer ou dénigrer, au fur et à mesure qu'elle s'exhibe quelque part, la peinture fra?che... Je viens de tirer du chiffonnier où ils s'accumulaient depuis sept mois--depuis le Salon d'automne--ces petits cartons de toutes couleurs, souvenirs de tant de promenades en rond, le long des cimaises, qui amusèrent mes après-midi d'hiver, et je suis effarée de la quantité folle de toile et de ch?ssis que cela représente... Expositions de sociétés, expositions de cercles, expositions nationales et internationales, expositions féministes et d'employés de chemins de fer, expositions d'arts ?indépendants?, expositions d'oeuvres particulières où Jean montre ses paysages, Jacques ses animaux, Pierre ses portraits, Madeleine ses fleurs; en tout, une trentaine de salons à visiter. Et ce n'était là qu'un commencement, une fa?on de nous mettre en appétit; les petits salons, ce sont les zakouskis que l'on déguste sans s'asseoir, en attendant le repas sérieux où l'on se nourrira pour tout de bon... Nous voilà servis. Les deux Salons--les vrais!--nous ont ouvert leurs portes; et ce ne sont point des salons, c'est un palais tout entier que, cette fois, la peinture illumine et fleurit...

On dirait que les Parisiens ont renoncé, pour une semaine, à leurs amusements ordinaires et que brusquement leur curiosité s'est désintéressée de tout. Ne leur parlez point de politique en ce moment; ils ne savent pas ce que c'est et jamais les choses qu'on dit au Palais-Bourbon ne leur ont paru plus vaines et plus obscures. Ils ont oublié déjà les surprises délicieuses de l'exposition de Whistler et les étonnantes ferronneries qu'on leur montre au musée Galbera les laissent indifférents. Voilà presque une semaine que les anecdotes sur Rothschild leur semblent démodées et ce n'est que d'un oeil distrait qu'ils ?suivent? ce qui s'imprime au sujet du mariage du kronprinz. Un concours de ?balcons fleuris? s'est ouvert lundi dernier: ils l'ignorent; demain la Fête des Fleurs égayera, parfumera le bois de Boulogne: que leur importe? Ils ne vont depuis trois jours que là où ils ont chance de rencontrer leur nouvel h?te, de sourire à ses dix-neuf ans, de l'acclamer. Alphonse XIII est, à cette heure, l'occupation principale et l'unique joie de Paris.

Concours du Conservatoire. La vraie ?grande semaine? de l'été parisien. Mais on a voulu l'entourer de plus de faste qu'autrefois, cette ?grande semaine?, et c'est dans un vrai thé?tre, ouvert aux curiosités de mille intrus, que les rites en sont à présent célébrés. ?Ce n'est plus ?a.? J'entends tout le monde répéter cette phrase, autour de moi, car j'ai la passion de ces concours et, depuis la contrebasse et l'alto qui en ouvrent la série jusqu'au trombone qui en sonnera tout à l'heure la cl?ture, je n'en manque pas un. C'est pour moi comme un bain d'émotion joyeuse et je ne me soucie guère, égo?ste que je suis, de savoir s'il est bon ou mauvais qu'il y ait des concours du Conservatoire et ce que valent les jugements qu'on y rend, ou à quoi auront servi, dans trente ans, les victoires qui s'y remportent aujourd'hui. J'y vois s'agiter de la jeunesse; j'assiste à des batailles dont le bruit n'est fait que de musique... je jouis des gentils spectacles que donnent l'espérance, la gr?ce, l'ardeur de vaincre; je vois (ou je crois voir), ?à et là, poindre les grandes renommées de demain et ma vanité s'en réjouit. On est toujours flatté (pourquoi? je n'en sais rien, vraiment) d'avoir été témoin de ces débuts-là, de pouvoir dire de l'artiste qu'on acclame: ?Je l'ai vu remporter (ou rater) son second prix, il y a quinze ans.?

Tous, il est vrai, n'ont pas les mêmes go?ts; et, par exemple, un grand nombre de Parisiens avaient, dimanche dernier, préféré au plaisir de la ?balade? champêtre celui de demeurer à Paris pour y acclamer ?tienne Dolet. Justement, à l'heure de prendre mon train, j'ai vu passer, sous ma fenêtre, un de ces groupes. Une jeune femme, coiffée d'un chapeau rouge, le précédait; derrière elle, un drapeau rouge était déployé, que portaient des jeunes gens. Je les ai suivis jusqu'à l'H?tel de Ville. Ils criaient, sur un rythme de marche: Hou! Hou! la calotte! Un de mes amis, professeur à l'?cole des Langues orientales, m'accompagnait; je le priai de me renseigner sur l'étymologie de ce cri, que j'entendais pour la première fois.

Nous avons publié la semaine dernière des photographies donnant une idée d'ensemble du magnifique spectacle qui fut organisé à Vevey pour la Fête des Vignerons de 1905. Mais le cliché photographique--cet incomparable instrument d'illustration--est malheureusement impuissant à rendre le mouvement, la gaieté, la gr?ce ou la majesté des cortèges, des danses et des reconstitutions scéniques. Les dessins de Georges Scott, que nous reproduisons aujourd'hui en quatre pages tirées à part, sont, au contraire, une évocation vivante du poème qui se déroula sur l'immense scène du thé?tre en plein air de Vevey... ?vocation forcément incomplète: il faudrait un gros album de dessins semblables pour représenter tous les groupes différents dont M. Jean Morax dessina les costumes et régla harmonieusement les mouvements.

A la veille du voyage en France de S. M. Alphonse XIII, nous avons la bonne fortune d'offrir à nos lecteurs un portrait inédit du roi d'Espagne. Cette photographie a été prise, au palais royal de Madrid, il y a quinze jours, par le photographe de la cour, M. Franzen, représentant en la circonstance L'Illustration elle-même. Le jeune souverain avait bien voulu accorder au premier journal illustré fran?ais une pose spéciale, pour laquelle il avait revêtu l'uniforme qu'il doit porter à son entrée à Paris, et il avait mis le grand cordon de la Légion d'honneur.

Et puis ce quartier des Ecoles me ravit. Il me semble qu'on y respire un air plus léger qu'ailleurs. Je songe que c'est le coin de Paris d'où sont parties la plupart des idées qui font la grandeur de cette ville-ci et sa gr?ce, où l'on entretient les plus beaux rêves, où presque toutes les ambitions ont une noblesse, où tous les hommes qu'on rencontre ont vingt ans...
