This edited volume is provides an authoritative synthesis of knowledge about the history of life. All the major groups of organisms are treated, by the leading workers in their fields. With sections on: The Importance of Knowing the Tree of Life; The Origin and Radiation of Life on Earth; The Relationships of Green Plants; The Relationships of Fungi; and The Relationships of Animals. This book should prove indispensable for evolutionary biologists, taxonomists, ecologists interested in biodiversity, and as a baseline sourcebook for organismic biologists, botanists, and microbiologists. An essential reference in this fundamental area.

A Phylogenetic Classification
Author: Guillaume Lecointre,Hervé Le Guyader
Pubpsher: Harvard University Press
Did you know that you are more closely related to a mushroom than to a daisy? That dinosaurs are still among us? That the terms "fish" and "invertebrates" do not indicate scientific groupings? All this is the result of major changes in classification. This book diagrams the tree of life according to the most recent methods of this system.
After the untimely murder of her father, Hadassah Asa runs for her life in an attempt to allude those responsible for his death. Having killed him for his secrets and finding none, the murderers are now after her. While on the run she meets and joins forces with a handsome stranger who too has a vested interest in Hadassah and the people who are responsible for her father's murder. Now together they must figure out not only who murder him but why they are now after Hadassah. But there is one catch, she feels a strange pull from him that she can't explain. Together, they embark on a journey that will challenge their beliefs and everything that they have come to know about each other and themselves.
Though many books are available on the 22 major Tarot cards, few look in depth at the 56 Minor Arcana, or suit cards. Simple, accessible, and easy to understand, these "overlooked mirrors" of everyday life can help us access our inner knowing and learn more about ourselves. In refreshingly down-to-earth terms and with a joyous, commonsense wisdom, Kliegman demystifies the Tarot by revealing its "small secrets."

New insights from analyses of molecules, morphology, and theory of data analysis
Author: J. Wolfgang Wägele,Thomas Bartolomaeus
Pubpsher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
The growing success of molecular methods has challenged traditional views of animal evolution and a large number of alternative hypotheses are hotly debated today. For the deep metazoan phylogeny project, data sets of hitherto unmatched quality and quantity were compiled and analysed with innovative bioinformatics tools. The book begins at the base of the tree of life to discuss the origin of animals and early branches of the phylogenetic tree. The following section presents special data sets gained from mitochondrial genomes and from morphology, with a focus on nervous systems. The final section is dedicated to theoretical aspects of data analysis and new bioinformatics tools. The book closes with a unique general discussion of all hypotheses contained in previous chapters.This work provides the most comprehensiveoverview available of the state of the art in this exciting field of evolutionary research.
