Subtitle in pre-publication: The true story of the de-extinction of one of history's most iconic creatures.
Moths of the family Arctiidae, with their brilliant coloration, spectacular courtship rituals, and bizarre defenses, are wonders of the natural world. Unpalatable by virtue of secondary chemicals acquired from their hostplants, these moths advertise their defenses by their coloration and often mimic butterflies, wasps, bees, stinkbugs, and even cockroaches. They have ears with which they hear the echolocation of bats, and some answer with aposematic warnings, while some may jam the bats' sonar. This book, the first written on this fascinating group, documents how tiger moths and woolly bears-the adults and larvae of the Arctiidae-flourish in a world rife with predators, parasites, and competitors. The contributing authors' accounts, each written by a recognized expert in the field, weave together seminal studies on phylogeny and behavior, natural history, chemical communication, mate choice and sexual selection, chemical ecology, parasite-host relationships, self medication, animal orientation, predator-prey interactions, mimicry, adaptive coloration, speciation, biodiversity, and more.
Describes the anatomy of life of the woolly mammoths as well as why they became extinct.
Woolly is a small woolly bear caterpillar who thinks big until a question of his identity is raised. In combination with an unfortunate event that involves what marks him as an outsider, Woolly faces a dilemma every child faces in life. With the help of his two friends Neil the Snail and Lydia the Ladybug, Woolly takes a journey to find his place in the world. It takes nothing less than a bee royalty, a vegetarian sparrow and a mysterious advisor to make him realize his purpose. Unfortunately, someone loses a whisker along the way but there is a happy ending. This is a story about loss, friendship, growing up, but it is mostly a story about bravery. Bravery, to face your own fears and then face the world. It is a story about standing proud and tall because of who you are, no matter what everyone else thinks.
Woolly monkeys are large, attractive and widespread primates found throughout many parts of the Amazon basin. It is only in the last twenty-five years or so that long-term studies of woollies in their forest habitat have been successful; they have not generally been successfully kept in captivity. But now, especially because of their size, these creatures are pressed on all sides by bush meat hunters and forest fragmentation. Their future is becoming critically precarious and the editors feel that it is time to showcase these animals with a full book. The editors draw together a number of recent woolly monkey studies from three Amazonian countries, including five taxa of woolly monkeys, four of which have recently been reclassified without using new biological criteria as species rather than subspecies (Groves, 2001, 2005; Rylands & Mittermeier, 2009). This volume provides a diversity of studies by well-known researchers and advanced students on a wide range of subjects using newly generated data, including a criticism of the recent taxonomic changes. The varied information contained within The Woolly Monkey: Behavior, Ecology, Systematics and Captive Research will help readers understand these handsome animals and will, we hope, energize them to contribute to their conservation.
In the cloud forests of the Amazon Basin, scientists are installing extraordinary numbers of camera traps in the hopes of learning more about an elusive species—woolly monkeys. No one knows for sure how many woolly monkeys are left in the wild. But they play a key role in their ecosystem, and without them the rain forest is in trouble. Join scientists on their quest to solve the mysteries surrounding the lives of woolly monkeys before it's too late. Scan QR codes inside the book to see and hear the monkeys!

When George W. ("Woolly") Bear moved into Elder Haven, a retirement community on Hilton Head Island, Souh Carolina, he was delighted. The location was on a semi-tropical barrier island with the many amenities of a warm climate, and a wealth of activities and benefits for older people. Little did he conceive that the Haven was a den of horrors where all of the disappointments and problems of his past years would pale by comparison with life at this bleak institution. And he would not only face his own unwelcome burdens but would be besieged by the problems of other residents who pleaded with him for help. Fortunately, placing his faith in the hands of his ancient heritage, he discovered an unexpected source of mysterious perception, energy, and insight that revealed to him the secret of success at the end of this tunnel of darkness.
Mr. Woolly, being a curious little sheep, loves to learn! Sometimes, his curiousity gets the better of him and he finds himself in another adventure, leading his barnyard friends as they discover life on the farm. Author Lisa A. Dabrowski's hand-crafted characters and photographs bring to life this charming, whimsical tale.
I live in New Jersey and work in an after-school enrichment program. As an educator, the subject of bullying is crucial not only as a means of preventing it, but also understanding what it arises from. I learned through the education of Aesthetic Realism, founded by poet and scholar Eli Siegel, that the central cause of bullying is contempt. All children everywhere can change what is deeply hurtful in themselves into kind, compassionate individuals through studying this principle of Aesthetic Realism: The greatest danger for a person is to have contempt for the world and what is in it...Contempt can be defined as a lessening of what is different from oneself as a means of self-increase as one sees it.
