This open access book offers a fully illustrated compendium of glossary terms and basic principles in the field of palynology, making it an indispensable tool for all palynologists. It is a revised and extended edition of ´´Pollen Terminology. An illustrated handbook,´´ published in 2009. This second edition, titled ´´Illustrated Pollen Terminology´´ shares additional insights into new and stunning aspects of palynology. In this context, the general chapters have been critically revised, expanded and restructured. The chapter ´´Misinterpretations in Palynology´´ has been extended with new research data and additional ambiguous terms, e.g., polyads vs. massulae; the chapter ´´Methods in Palynology´´ has been extensively enhanced with illustrated protocols showing the majority of the methods and techniques used when studying recent and fossil pollen with LM, SEM and TEM. Moreover, additional information about the description and publication of pollen data is provided in the chapter ´´How to Describe and Illustrate Pollen Grains.´´ Various other parts of the general chapters have now been updated and/or extended with more comprehensive textual passages and new illustrations. The chapter ´´Illustrated Pollen Terms´´ now features new and more appropriate examples of each term, including additional LM micrographs. Where necessary, the entries for selected pollen terms have been refined by rewording or adding definitions, illustrations, and new micrographs. Lastly, new terms are included, such as ´´suprasculpture´´ and the prefix ´´nano-´´ for ornamentation features. The chapter ´´Illustrated Pollen Terms´´ is the main part of this book and comprises more than 300 widely used terms illustrated with over 1,000 high-quality images. It provides a detailed survey of the manifold ornamentation and structures of pollen, and offers essential insights into their stunning beauty.
This book contains reproductions of the famous Cottingley fairies together with a detailed analysis of their authenticity by British writer Author Conan Doyle. The Cottingley fairies were a series of five photographs taken by two young cousins who resided in Cottingley, near Bradford in England. The photographs purportedly captured images of fairies, and gained widespread attention at the time. They were later admitted to be fakes by the girls-except one, which Frances maintained was in fact real and the inspiration or the forgeries. Contents include: ´´How The Matter Arose´´, ´´The First Published Account--´Strand´ Christmas Number, 1920´´, ´´Reception Of The First Photographs´´, ´´The Second Series´´, ´´Observations Of A Clairvoyant In The Cottingley Glen, August 1921´´, ´´Independent Evidence For Fairies´´, ´´Some Subsequent Cases´´, ´´The Theosophic View Of Fairies´´, etc. Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930) was a British writer most famous for his detective novels that feature Sherlock Holmes. Other notable works by this author include: ´´The Mystery of Cloomber´´ (1888) and ´´Sir Nigel´´ (1906). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.

More than 162,000 networking Product Description ´´For an engineer determined to refine and secure Internet operation or to explore alternative solutions to persistent problems, the insights provided by this book will be invaluable.´´ -Vint Cerf, Internet pioneer TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, Second Edition, is a detailed and visual guide to today´s TCP/IP protocol suite. Fully updated for the newest innovations, it demonstrates each protocol in action through realistic examples from modern Linux, Windows, and Mac OS environments. There´s no better way to discover why TCP/IP works as it does, how it reacts to common conditions, and how to apply it in your own applications and networks. Building on the late W. Richard Stevens´ classic first edition, author Kevin R. Fall adds his cutting-edge experience as a leader in TCP/IP protocol research, updating the book to fully reflect the latest protocols and best practices. He first introduces TCP/IP´s core goals and architectural concepts, showing how they can robustly connect diverse networks and support multiple services running concurrently. Next, he carefully explains Internet addressing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Then, he walks through TCP/IP´s structure and function from the bottom up: from link layer protocols-such as Ethernet and Wi-Fi-through network, transport, and application layers. Fall thoroughly introduces ARP, DHCP, NAT, firewalls, ICMPv4/ICMPv6, broadcasting, multicasting, UDP, DNS, and much more. He offers extensive coverage of reliable transport and TCP, including connection management, timeout, retransmission, interactive data flow, and congestion control. Finally, he introduces the basics of security and cryptography, and illuminates the crucial modern protocols for protecting security and privacy, including EAP, IPsec, TLS, DNSSEC, and DKIM. Whatever your TCP/IP experience, this book will help you gain a deeper, more intuitive understanding of the entire protocol suite so you can build better applications and run more reliable, efficient networks. Features + Benefits W.

In the years since its publication in 1988, Stephen Hawking´s A Brief History Of Time has established itself as a landmark volume in scientific writing. It has become an international publishing phenomenon, translated into forty languages and selling over nine million copies. The book was on the cutting edge of what was then known about the nature of the universe, but since that time there have been extraordinary advances in the technology of macrocosmic worlds. These observations have confirmed many of Professor Hawkin´s theoretical predictions in the first edition of his book, including the recent discoveries of the Cosmic Background Explorer satellite (COBE), which probed back in time to within 300,000 years of the fabric of space-time that he had projected. Eager to bring to his original text the new knowledge revealed by these many observations, as well as his recent research, for this expanded edition Professor Hawking has prepared a new introduction to the book, written an entirely new chapter on the fascinating subject of wormholes and time travel, and updated the original chapters. In addition, to heighten understanding of complex concepts that readers may have found difficult to grasp despite the clarity and wit of Professor Hawking´s writing, this edition is enhanced throughout with more than 240 full-color illustrations, including satellite images, photographs made made possible by spectacular technological advance such as the Hubble Space Telescope, and computer generated images of three and four-dimensional realities. Detailed captions clarify these illustrations, enable readers to experience the vastness of intergalactic space, the nature of black holes, and the microcosmic world of particle physics in which matters and antimatter collide. A classic work that now brings to the reader the latest understanding of cosmology, A Brief History Of Time is the story of the ongoing search for t he tantalizing secrets at the heart of time and space.
