Heaven On A Barbed Stick
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 4,970. Language: English. Published: October 25, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Botany
Join us as we invite a classic species of African tree to tell of its benevolent relationship with mammals in its own voice. Umbrella thorn combines a pioneering vigour on overgrazed and trampled land with the willingness – once established as a mature tree – to give umbrage to, not take umbrage at, the many potentially abusive large herbivores in its habitat.
Yours Cuprically
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 5,720. Language: English. Published: October 24, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Life Sciences / Biochemistry, Essay » Literature
Join us as we invite the chemical element copper to explain its various, and sometimes contrary, biological roles in its own voice. Across the living spectrum from microbes to macrobes, we see the micro-mastery of an electron-juggling metal that can catalyse, energise, sanitise, oxidise, and antioxidise – provided that it remains in vanishingly small amounts.
Odours And Attitude: A Comparison Of How Two Toughs Get Going
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 4,340. Language: English. Published: October 21, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Life Sciences / Zoology / Mammals, Essay » Literature
Join us as we compare and contrast the honey badger and the wolverine zoologically, showing that their evolutionary convergence is an accident of two disparate environments – the predator-beset Old World and the climatically forbidding far North – both offering a niche to creatures toughened almost to a fault.
I Am Casuarina
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 5,860. Language: English. Published: October 21, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Botany, Essay » Literature
Join us as we invite a family of deceptively leafless trees and shrubs to review and interpret its life strategy in its own voice. Casuarinas, at home with infertility and wildfire, generate substantial solar power by combining a highly original photosynthetic design and an unsharing attitude toward animals – to the benefit of wood-chopping humans.
New Pelvic Thrusts In A Fishy World?
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 3,290. Language: English. Published: October 21, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Life Sciences / Zoology / Ichthyology & Herpetology, Essay » Literature
Join us as we compare a wide range of bony fishes with respect to a body part that is among the least free-swimming in humans: the pelvis. While fishes are surprisingly consistent in also possessing a pelvis, they take a surprisingly slippery approach to where this should be located – in some cases sliding it as far forward as the lower jaw.
Weeds That Swim For Fishes That Don’t
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,360. Language: English. Published: October 21, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Life Sciences / Marine Biology, Essay » Literature
Join us as we compare and contrast the sargassumfish with the four-winged flying fish, seemingly incompatible forms closely coexisting far out at sea. The first has fins resembling hands and the second has fins resembling wings, but both depend on a ‘seaweed’ that – floating freely – seems the most uncoupled of all from its evolutionary moorings.
Bridging The Chasm Between African Rockrubbers And Australian Rockhoppers
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 4,380. Language: English. Published: October 21, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Life Sciences / Zoology / Mammals, Essay » Literature
Join us as we compare and contrast rock hyraxes and rock-wallabies, paradoxically divergent boulder-dwellers, in what appear to be mirror-image habitats west and east of the Indian Ocean. What makes all the difference to their evolution, we suggest, has been the constant pressures from predators in Africa – particularly those underestimated baboons.
The Hypertail And The Infratail: Axes From The Sublime To The Ridiculous?
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 2,490. Language: English. Published: October 19, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Science and Nature » Life Sciences / Zoology / Ichthyology & Herpetology, Essay » Literature
Join us as we compare and contrast sunfish and oarfish, which have shapes so disparate as to hail from different planets. Not only is the ocean sunfish the heaviest and the oarfish the longest of all bony fishes, but both have virtually reinvented the concept of the fish tail – and perhaps how to swim in the first place.
