There is more to a bird than simply feathers. And just because birds evolved from a single flying ancestor doesn't mean they are structurally all the same. With over 385 stunning drawings depicting 200 species, The Unfeathered Bird is a richly illustrated book on bird anatomy that offers refreshingly original insights into what goes on beneath the feathered surface. Each exquisite drawing is made from an actual specimen and reproduced in sumptuous large format. The birds are shown in lifelike positions and engaged in behavior typical of the species: an underwater view of the skeleton of a swimming loon, the musculature of a porpoising penguin, and an unfeathered sparrowhawk plucking its prey. Jargon-free and easily accessible to any reader, the lively text relates birds' anatomy to their lifestyle and evolution, examining such questions as why penguins are bigger than auks, whether harrier hawks really have double-jointed legs, and the difference between wing claws and wing spurs. A landmark in popular bird books, The Unfeathered Bird is a must for anyone who appreciates birds or bird art. A unique book that bridges art, science, and history Over 385 beautiful drawings, artistically arranged in a sumptuous large-format book Accessible, jargon-free text--the only book on bird anatomy aimed at the general reader Drawings and text all based on actual bird specimens Includes most anatomically distinct bird groups Many species never illustrated before

Wie es ist ein Vogel zu sein – ein bahnbrechender Blick auf die Sinneswelt der Vögel Das Buch des britischen Ornithologen Tim Birkhead hat die englische Leserwelt im Sturm erobert –und begeistert nun auch das deutschsprachige Publikum. Fliegen wie ein Vogel – das ist für viele Menschen ein Traum. Doch nur wenige von uns sind sich der anderen Fähigkeiten und Sinnesleistungen bewusst, die das Vogelsein zu einer großartigen und ganz besonderen Erfahrung machen. Wie ist es, ein Flamingo zu sein, der den unsichtbaren Regen fühlt, welcher Hunderte von Kilometern entfernt niedergeht? Oder ein Kiwi, der in einer stockfinsteren neuseeländischen Nacht durch das feuchte Unterholz stapft? Was empfindet ein Tölpel, der nach langer winterlicher Trennung seinen Partner wiedertrifft? Und wie gelingt es Zugvögeln, das Erdmagnetfeld wahrzunehmen? Die Sinne der Vögel zeichnet historisch nach, wie unser Wissen über Vögel vor allem durch technische Fortschritte im Lauf der letzten 50 Jahre gewachsen ist. Das Buch erzählt faszinierende Geschichten darüber, wie Vögel ihre Sinne – Gesichts-, Hör-, Geruchs-, Geschmacks-, Tast- und Magnetsinn – gebrauchen, um ihre Umwelt zu interpretieren und miteinander zu interagieren. Moderne Testverfahren haben frühere Überzeugungen als falsch entlarvt, beispielsweise den Glauben, dass Vögel einen schlecht entwickelten Geruchssinn haben. Dennoch unterschätzen wir noch immer, was im Kopf eines Vogels vor sich geht – vor allem deshalb, weil die Art und Weise, wie wir sie beobachten und studieren, unser Verständnis gleichzeitig voranbringt und einschränkt. Indem dieses Buch deutlich macht, wie unsere eigenen Sinne neue Erkenntnisse sowohl fördern als auch hemmen, zeigt es Wege auf, das Verhalten von Vögeln besser zu verstehen. Nie zuvor hat ein populäres Sachbuch so klar dargelegt, wie grundlegend das Verhalten von Vögeln von ihren Sinnen geprägt wird. Dank seiner lebenslangen wissenschaftlichen Beschäftigung mit diesen Tieren verfügt Tim Birkhead über einen umfangreichen Schatz an Beobachtungen, der ihm erlaubt, Vögel und ihr Verhalten zu deuten und zu verstehen. Niemand, der dieses faszinierende und wunderbar illustrierte Buch liest, wird davon unberührt bleiben.

Dr Abraham begins by examining the currency of alchemical thought in Britain and Europe and its presence in the work of such poets as Shakespeare, Jonson, Donne, Herrick, Milton and Dryden. She then moves on to a detailed examination of Marvell's long poems, demonstrating the extensive presentation of the alchemical process. Other important English alchemists are cited including Thomas Tymme, Robert Fludd and Thomas Vaughan.This is a highly original and stimulating study which brings out hitherto undiscovered meanings and relationships. The book is illustrated with 32 emblems from the works of the Renaissance and 17th-century alchemists, and will henceforth be an essential text for serious students of Marvell.
