Rom Harre, “Pavlov’s Dogs and Schrödinger’s Cat: Scenes from the living laboratory”
Oxford University Press, USA | 2009-03-15 | ISBN: 0199238561 | 288 pages | PDF | 1,6 MB
From the sheep, dog, and cockerel that were sent aloft in Montgolfier’s balloon to test the air over Paris, to the famous clone Dolly the Sheep and the Darwinian finches of the Galapagos, Pavlov’s Dogs and Schrodinger’s Cat offers a fascinating and enlightening look at the use of plants and animals–including humans–in scientific experiments. Rom Harre provides a fresh and fascinating perspective on research, setting aside moral reflection to simply examine the history of how and why living creatures have been used for the purposes of discovery. Ranging over five centuries, the book uncovers many extraordinary stories, including tales of the people involved, to many curious incidents and episodes, and the occasional scientific fraud. From Gregor Mendel’s use of pea plants to explore heredity, to Barry Marshall’s used of himself as the experimental animal in his helicobacter experiments (he survived) and even the use of an imaginary cat in Schrodinger’s famous thought experiment, the reader discovers a perspective on scientific work he or she has never encountered before.

Animals By Robert McNeill Alexander
Publisher: C U P 1995 | 517 Pages | ISBN: 0521343917 , 052134865X | DJVU | 6 MB
This book is about the major groups of animals, their structure, physiology and ways of life. Each chapter, except the first, deals with a taxonomic group of animals, usually a phylum or class. Brief descriptions of a few examples are followed by more detailed discussion of selected topics. Some of the topics are peculiarities of the groups (for example, the shells of molluscs and the flight of insects). Others are more widespread features or properties of animals which can be illustrated particularly well by reference to the group. Many experiments are described, on the grounds that it is as important and interesting to know how information is obtained, as to know the information itself. The text demonstrates the extraordinary diversity of animals, without becoming encumbered with excessive morphological and taxonomic information.
Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned about Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat
Publisher: Bantam; Reprint edition (September 7, 2010) | Language: English | ISBN-10: 0385343981 | EPUB + MOBI | 320 pages | 2 mb + 1 mb
Cooper had every intention of saying no to the veterinarian who asked her if she was interested in adopting a four-week-old stray kitten with a particular handicap. She was fresh off a bad breakup, working a low-paying job and living rent-free in a friend’s bedroom—plus she was worried about the social implications of adding one cat to the two she had already adopted: The neighborhood kids will… say things like ‘That’s where Old Widow Cooper, the cat lady, lives.’ But as soon as she picked up the tiny kitten and he started to purr, she caved. She settled on a name and brought Homer home. His intrepid explorations of his new environs quickly challenged Cooper’s expectations of a blind cat. And through 12 years, six moves, several boyfriends and a showdown with a burglar, this tender and affecting book reveals Homer’s lessons about love and acceptance—and how he transformed Cooper into the woman she had always wanted to be.

Quentin Bone, Richard Moore, “Biology of Fishes, 3rd Edition”
Taylor & Francis | 2008-02-25 | ISBN: 0415375622 | 478 pages | PDF | 26,9 MB
The Third Edition of Biology of Fishes is chiefly about fish as remarkably efficient machines for coping with the many problems that life in water entails, and looks at many such special cases. Fishes form the largest group of vertebrates, with around 20,000 known species, and they display a remarkable diversity of size, shape, internal structure and ecology to cope with environments ranging from transient puddles to the abyssal depths of the sea.
Biology of Fishes does not try to cover all aspects of fish biology, but focuses on the ingenious ways in which fish have resolved the particular problems that come from living in water, especially body fluid regulation, locomotion, feeding mechanisms, and sensory systems. Enough detail is provided for the reader to be able to go on and use primary research papers. Each chapter has been thoroughly updated and a new chapter on the immune system has been added.
This is an ideal textbook for students of fish biology and any of the branches of aquatic biology. Given its skilful combination of breadth and detail, the book also provides a manageable review of fish biology for experienced biologists.
