We all have one. The human body. But do we really know all of its parts and how they work? The Handy Anatomy Answer Book is the key to unlocking this door to a wondrous world. Covering all the major body systems—integumentary (skin, hair, etc.), skeletal, muscular, nervous, sensory, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive, and, for good measure, adds chapters on growth and development and how science can help and augment the body—it follows the fascinating maze of organ systems and shows how much the body does routinely just to let you move, breathe, eat, and fight off disease. This handy reference helps make the language of anatomy—as well as physiology and pathology—more understandable and less intimidating. Fascinating trivia, plus serious facts, combine to answer over 1,200 questions about the human body, including What is Gray’s Anatomy? What does it mean to have 20/20 vision? Why is blood sticky? How does exercise affect the heart? What is “gluten intolerance”? Is urine always yellow in color? What are the seven warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease? What is a reflex? How much sleep does an individual need? Can humans use organs from other animals for transplants?

Der Strom des Bewusstseins

Über Kreativität und Gehirn

Hat ein Regenwurm Empfindungen? Wie viele Nervenzellen hat eine Qualle, und wozu dienen sie ihr? Was kann man aus der Beobachtung von Menschen lernen, die an Migräne leiden? Und was passiert in unserem Gehirn, wenn wir uns falsch erinnern? Diese und viele andere Fragen behandelt Oliver Sacks in seinem neuen Buch. Der New Yorker Neurologe ist durch seine Fallgeschichten weltberühmt geworden. Voller Empathie und mit großer Fachkenntnis hat er immer wieder Menschen porträtiert, deren Leben durch eine schwere Krankheit oder Behinderung geprägt wurde – und hat seinen Lesern gezeigt, welche Chancen die Abweichungen vom sogenannten Normalen bieten und welche positiven Besonderheiten die betroffenen Menschen auszeichnen. Als er im Sommer 2015 starb, war gerade seine Autobiographie «On the Move» erschienen – und wurde weltweit zum Bestseller. Fast bis zum letzten Tag hat er noch an einem Band mit neuen Studien und Fallgeschichten gearbeitet, die von den kreativen Potentialen des menschlichen Gehirns zeugen. Wie entsteht Bewusstsein? Wie funktionieren Gedächtnis und Erinnerung? Dieser Band, den Oliver Sacks' engste Mitarbeiter nun druckfertig gemacht haben, liest sich wie eine Art Vermächtnis des großartigen Autors und Menschenkenners.

Nichts reinkritzeln. Keine Knicke machen. Nichts draufkleckern. Und bloss nicht im Regen liegen lassen... Wir haben es alle von klein auf gelernt: Bücher muss man gut behandeln. Dass es aber unheimlich Spass macht, genau das nicht zu tun, zeigt dieses ideensprühende Buch: Bohre mit einem Bleistift Löcher in diese Seite. Dokumentiere dein Abendessen. Archiviere hier die Briefmarken all deiner Post. Schreibe mit dem Stift im Mund. Tobe dich auf dieser Seite aus, wenn du richtig sauer bist. Jede Seite dieses Buches wirkt wie ein Befreiungsschlag und setzt ungeahnte kreative Energien frei. Schaffen ist zerstören, sagt Keri Smith.

Die 8. Auflage des Campbell (deutsche Ausgabe BA 11/09) wurde jetzt unter Beachtung der hiesigen Lehrpläne für die Oberstufe bearbeitet und erschien in einem wesentlich handlicheren, schultaschenfähigen Format. Der Campbell hatte sich bereits früher als Zusatzlehrbuch für Leistungskurse Biologie und berufliche Gymnasien mit entsprechend fachlicher Ausrichtung bewährt. Diese für Schulen optimierte Ausgabe ist im Rahmen des Imprints Pearson Schule eine folgerichtige Edition (vgl. auch M. Kölling: "Einführung in Java mit Greenfoot"; R. Hattenhauer: "Informatik für Schule und Ausbildung", beide BA 9/10). Ein Themenband zur Ökologie ist für November diesen Jahres angekündigt. - Vorrangig ist der Band für Bibliotheken mit den oben angesprochenen Schultypen im Einzugsbereich zu empfehlen. Als allgemeines Biologielehrbuch ohne bundeslandspezifische Varianten ist der auch preislich sehr akzeptable Titel aufgrund seines fachlichen Niveaus und seiner grafisch hervorragenden Gestaltung auch darüber hinaus einsetzbar.
