A reimagined version of the Aesop fable, The Hare and the Tortoise.
Author: S. M. R. Saia
When the snail challenges him to a race, Little Ant can't resist the opportunity to show off. He knows there is no way that the snail can beat him. But he soon finds out that there is more to winning than being the best! This story is a re-imagining of Aesop's fable "The Tortoise and the Hare" and teaches that slow and steady wins the race. About the Little Ant Books These character-building stories for ages 3 to 7 are re-imaginings of Aesop's classic fables. In each story, Little Ant learns a moral or safety-related lesson. Other frequently recurring themes in the stories include kindness, friendship, and the importance of being yourself.

Research on snail-transmitted disease has continued at a considerable pace during the last twenty years, and sveral investigators have made valuable contributions to our knowledge of these diseases.The objective of this book is to present an up-to-date account of the infections or diseases of the world which are transmitted by snails, and in which each disease is considered in much greater detail than is usually provided by textbooks on general, medical or veterinary parasitology.These two volumes cover the infections or diseases that are caused by certain helminths which are transmitted by snails.

'Beautifully written and filled with mind-boggling wonders' - Dave Goulson, author of A Sting in the Tale 'Thrilling, compellingly readable and paradigm-shattering' - Charles Foster, author of Being a Beast 'Both expert and entertaining' - David Barrie, author of Incredible Journeys Ants have been walking the Earth since the age of the dinosaurs. Today there are one million ants for every one of us. The closer you get to ants, the more human they look: they build megacities, grow crops, raise livestock, tend their young and infirm, and even make vaccines. They also have a darker side: they wage war, enslave rivals and rebel against their oppressors. From fearsome army ants, who stage twelve-hour hunting raids where they devour thousands, to gentle leaf-cutters gardening in their peaceful underground kingdoms, every ant is engineered by nature to fulfil their particular role. Acclaimed biologist Susanne Foitzik has travelled the globe to study these master architects of Earth. Joined by journalist Olaf Fritsche, Foitzik invites readers deep into her world - in the field and in the lab - and will inspire new respect for ants as a global superpower. Fascinating and action-packed, Empire of Ants will open your eyes to the secret societies thriving right beneath your feet.

Presents recent significant and rapid development in the field of 2D and 3D image analysis 2D and 3D Image Analysis by Moments, is a unique compendium of moment-based image analysis which includes traditional methods and also reflects the latest development of the field. The book presents a survey of 2D and 3D moment invariants with respect to similarity and affine spatial transformations and to image blurring and smoothing by various filters. The book comprehensively describes the mathematical background and theorems about the invariants but a large part is also devoted to practical usage of moments. Applications from various fields of computer vision, remote sensing, medical imaging, image retrieval, watermarking, and forensic analysis are demonstrated. Attention is also paid to efficient algorithms of moment computation. Key features: Presents a systematic overview of moment-based features used in 2D and 3D image analysis. Demonstrates invariant properties of moments with respect to various spatial and intensity transformations. Reviews and compares several orthogonal polynomials and respective moments. Describes efficient numerical algorithms for moment computation. It is a "classroom ready" textbook with a self-contained introduction to classifier design. The accompanying website contains around 300 lecture slides, Matlab codes, complete lists of the invariants, test images, and other supplementary material. 2D and 3D Image Analysis by Moments, is ideal for mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, software developers, and Ph.D students involved in image analysis and recognition. Due to the addition of two introductory chapters on classifier design, the book may also serve as a self-contained textbook for graduate university courses on object recognition.

Jules Lemaître loved children. He had himself, when he was a professor at Grenoble, a daughter, Madeleine, who died after a month and he never consoled. Later he became a multiple and delicious godfather. Everyone knows the charming stories written for his godchildren. In Paris, in his large studio in the Rue d'Artois, lined with pale gold of precious bindings, Jules Lemaître was pleased to receive children, gobble them with cakes and sweets and opened for them a mysterious chest of his library, which then spread on the carpet the most unexpected toys, collected with almost as much love as books. Thus he was led to write an Alphabet
