Über diesen Titel:

Reseña del editor: An adaptation, or adaptive trait, is any heritable trait, that enables organisms to survive through natural selection and reproduce better under prevailing environmental conditions. Natural selection tends to preserve beautiful adaptation in populations and discard harmful ones. The evolution of animal form and function is the conceptual backbone of this book. It not only provides the framework for Animal Diversity, but also shifts the paradigm from a chiefly descriptive discipline to a dynamic predictive science. It is a book narrating rambling series of stories or vignettes about randomly selected animals or model organisms and their unique way of life. Animals might not be able to speak or master advanced language techniques, but they certainly have other ways of communications. Species often rely on verbal and nonverbal forms of communication, such as calls, nonvocal auditory outbursts, like the slap of a dolphin's tail on the water; bioluminescence; scent marking; chemical or tactile cues; visual signals and postural gestures. When it comes to acoustic communication, not every member of a species is just alike. Animals in different regions have often been overheard sounding off in different dialects. Communication between species can play important roles as well. One study suggested that the reason Madagascan spiny-tailed Iguana have well-developed ears, despite the fact that they don't communicate vocally is so that they can hear the warning calls of the Madagascan paradise flycatcher. The book is weaved intricately around these bizarre adaptations.

Buchbeschreibung MV Learning/Viva Books Private Limited, 2015. Softcover. Zustand: New. Description: The book Animal Adaptations explores the most fascinating and bizarre types of adaptations acquired by animals which have helped them to live comfortably in the harsh and most hostile environments. Firstly these adaptations refer to the evolutionary mechanisms that have produced them and they secondly refer to the traits that enhance the survival and reproductive success of their bearers. These adaptations have been randomly chosen and discussed by the authors to instil inquisitiveness and interest in the minds of students. No doubt the acquired adaptations impose costs as well as benefits, and the evolution of adaptations depends on the trade-off between those costs and benefits. Determining the costs and benefits of these adaptations is no doubt difficult because individuals differ not only in the degree to which they possess the adaptation, but also in many other ways. It is true that natural selection is instrumental in selecting and preserving these beneficial adaptations in the population and discarding harmful ones. The authors hope to provide substantive new challenges and raise queries in the minds of prospective animal biologists. Contents: Preface Heterochrony ? Origin, Ancestry, and Evolution of Chordate ? Origin and Ancestry of Mammals ? Primates and Origin of Homo Sapiens ? Homeostasis ? Parthenogenesis, Reproduction and Parental care ? Aerodynamics and Flight in Animals ? Migration ? Echolocation ? Interspecific Interaction ? Behavior ? Cryptobiosis ? Coral Reefs ? Mimicry, Camouflage and Colouration ? Polymorphism ? Bioluminescence ? Biological Clocks and Circadian Rhythms ? Electric Organs ? Sense Organs ? Sound Communication ? Weberian Ossicles ? Spider ?Webs? Glossary ? Index Printed Pages: 512. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 87534
