Description du livre Henry Holt. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. État : New. (Winner of the 2015 Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science) Why do elk grow majestic antlers, despite the devastating biological costs to the rest of their bodies? Why are there fish with mouths larger than their bodies, and bugs whose heads are so packed with muscle they don't have room for eyes? Every animal relies on a weapon of some kind; in some cases, however, we see species whose tusks or horns have become so outsized that it seems the animal should tip over or collapse under their bulk and weight. In this superbly illustrated book, biologist Douglas Emlen takes us into the worlds of these remarkable creatures to unravel these mysteries, all the while finding parallels in the human development of ever bigger, ever more frightening weapons."A great deal of the living world really is red in tooth and claw. That important principle has needed a real biologist to illustrate and explain it, now accomplished dramatically by Emlen."—Edward O. Wilson"Emlen's excellent writing will draw in readers intrigued by astonishingly powerful weapons, both in the wild and in the military, and how they have evolved owing to selective pressures."—Library Journal (starred review)"A skilled storyteller, Emlen takes the reader to Panama to observe dueling Harlequin beetles; to Tanzania to collect elephant excrement—and the dung beetles that live on it; and to tropical forests, where stalk-eyes flies defend their harems of females. The weapons discussed in these stories are illustrated in stunning color plates."—Science 270. N° de réf. du libraire 70042

Description du livre Henry Holt Company, United States, 2014. Hardback. État : New. David J Tuss (illustrateur). 236 x 157 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. WINNER OF THE PHI BETA KAPPA AWARD IN SCIENCE The story behind the stunning, extreme weapons we see in the animal world--teeth and horns and claws--and what they can tell us about the way humans develop and use arms and other weapons In Animal Weapons, Doug Emlen takes us outside the lab and deep into the forests and jungles where he s been studying animal weapons in nature for years, to explain the processes behind the most intriguing and curious examples of extreme animal weapons fish with mouths larger than their bodies and bugs whose heads are so packed with muscle they don t have room for eyes. As singular and strange as some of the weapons we encounter on these pages are, we learn that similar factors set their evolution in motion. Emlen uses these patterns to draw parallels to the way we humans develop and employ our own weapons, and have since battle began. He looks at everything from our armor and camouflage to the evolution of the rifle and the structures human populations have built across different regions and eras to protect their homes and communities. With stunning black and white drawings and gorgeous color illustrations of these concepts at work, Animal Weapons brings us the complete story of how weapons reach their most outsized, dramatic potential, and what the results we witness in the animal world can tell us about our own relationship with weapons of all kinds.
