Sasol  First Field Guide to Flying Mammals image
K150
Sasol First Field Guide to Flying Mammals
Science Reference
Struik Nature
Following the success of earlier 'Quick Guide' books, this slim little volume tackles one of the few groups of mammals that can fly. Divided into large fruit bats and smaller insecteating bats, this ultimate quick identification guide covers Africa's 12 bat families. An informative introduction touches on evolution, flight, echolocation and reproduction, demystifying an animal that is all too often misunderstood. The text describes the facial characteristics and wing shapes common to each family and points out features that can help to distinguish between them. But it is the photographs and annotated line drawings that are most useful for identification. They include bats in flight and roosting sites, and close-ups of facial structures and wings that highlight key diagnostic attributes. An added extra is a photographic section showing the skulls of a variety bats.

Sapiens a Brief History of Humankind
Biological Sciences
Penguin Random House
100,000 years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations and human rights; to trust money, books and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come? In Sapiens, Dr Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical – and sometimes devastating – breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behaviour from the heritage of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come? Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, Sapiens challenges everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our power ... and our future.

Understanding Elephants:  Guidelines for Safe and Enjoyable Elephant Viewing  image
K250
Elephants are arguably Africa’s most charismatic animals, and among the biggest drawcards to our game reserves. While the burgeoning game-park industry may be increasing our access to these magnificent creatures, rising human-elephant encounters are an inevitable outcome – sometimes, sadly, fatal. Such encounters could likely have been avoided had those involved understood elephant behaviour, and particularly how these intelligent animals interface with traffic through their territory. This book describes elephant family life, from rearing of infants to establishing dominance within a herd; it unpacks regular elephant behaviour, the matriarchal system, the particular dangers of males in musth, and many other aspects of their lives. Most of all, it provides guidelines for ensuring safe and enjoyable encounters with these majestic animals. This is an essential guide for those planning visits to reserves: aside from the interest factor, being able to read the tell-tale signs may just save lives.

Science, Nature & Mathematics

Discovering, researching, and understanding the natural world.
Study concerned with the solid Earth, its waters, and the air that envelops it
Books on different aspects of Mathematics - for students, teachers and lecturers. Mathematics includes the study of such topics as quantity (number theory), structure (algebra), space (geometry), and change (analysis). It has no generally accepted definition. The main branches of pure mathematics are Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Statistics and Probability.
Topics include acids and bases, atomic structure, the periodic table, and more
The amazing natural world deserves our study.
Study of life, organisms, their life cycles, adaptations and environment
Systems for moving goods and people by highway, rail, air, water,
Scientific Style and Format presents three systems for referring to references (also known as citations) within the text of a journal article, book, or other scientific publication:
Ecology is the study of relationship between organisms and environment
Maize is most grown, followed by wheat, sugar cane and sunflowers.

Topics covered include Astronomy, Nature, Research & Development, and many other fields of study themed on the science of the natural world. In many ways, math is closely related to science.

Mathematics is such a useful tool that science could make few advances without it. However, math and standard sciences, like biology, physics, and chemistry, are distinct in at least one way: how ideas are tested and accepted based on evidence. Mathematics reveals hidden patterns that help us understand the world around us. Now much more than arithmetic and geometry, mathematics today is a diverse discipline that deals with data, measurements, and observations from science; with inference, deduction, and proof; and with mathematical models of natural phenomena, of human behaviour, and social systems.

The physical world and everything in it (such as plants, animals, mountains, oceans, stars, etc.) is not made by people. : the natural forces that control what happens in the world. : the way that a person or animal behaves: the character or personality of a person or animal.

The most important auxiliary discipline for the natural sciences is mathematics. It deals with problems that can be represented by numbers and geometric figures, and with the formal structures and systems derived from them. Mathematics and science form the foundations of engineering.

Mathematics is the science of patterns and relationships. As a theoretical discipline, mathematics explores the possible relationships among abstractions without concern for whether those abstractions have counterparts in the real world.

In many ways, math is closely related to science. Mathematics is a scholarly domain, and so the mathematical community works as the scientific community does — mathematicians build on each other's work and behave in ways that push the discipline forward. This progress contributes to scientific breakthroughs.

Science, Nature & Mathematics

Biological Sciences - There are four primary categories: botany, human biology, microbiology and zoology.

Chemistry - Traditionally, chemistry has been broken into five main subdisciplines: Organic, Analytical, Physical, Inorganic and Biochemistry.

Earth Sciences - The four basic areas of Earth Science study are: geology, meteorology, oceanography and astronomy.

Education - Education helps a person to get knowledge and improve confidence in life. It can help you improve your career and your personal growth. An educated person can become a great citizen of society. It helps you to take the right decisions in life

Environment & Ecology - Environment refers to the interaction between the physical, chemical and biological components. Ecology is the study of the relationship between organisms and their environment/ The environmental issues include pollution, deforestation, global warming, and other broader issues.

Experiments, Instruments & Measurements - Experimental methods and instrumentation is the precursor to these subjects. This resource integrates these concepts with statistics and uncertainty analysis to define what is necessary to measure and control, how precisely and how often.

Food & Farming - The four most important factors that influence crop yield are soil fertility, availability of water, climate, and diseases or pests. These factors can pose a significant risk to farms when they are not monitored and managed correctly.

History & Philosophy - History is the study of the past in all its forms. Philosophy of history examines the theoretical foundations of the practice, application, and social consequences of history and historiography. It is similar to other area studies – such as philosophy of science or philosophy of religion – in two respects.

Mathematics - Mathematics is the study of quantity, structure, and space. Mathematics. seeks out patterns and uses them to formulate new conjectures.

Nature - The Book of Nature within the relationship between religion and science, is a religious and philosophical concept originating in the Latin Middle Ages which views nature as a book to be read for knowledge and understanding.

Physics - Physics consists of many formulas and calculations. Physics concepts related to everyday life. Existence of various complex concepts. The calculations are very serious.

Popular Science - Popular science (also called pop-science or PopSci) is an interpretation of science intended for a general audience. While science journalism focuses on recent scientific developments, popular science is more broad-ranging. It may be written by professional science journalists or by scientists themselves.

Science Reference - Science encompasses the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment, and technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes.

Research & Development - R&D refers to two intertwined processes of research (to identify new knowledge and ideas) and development (turning the ideas into tangible products or processes).

Scientists & Engineers - Engineers are not a sub-category of scientists. So often the two terms are used interchangeably, but they are separate, albeit related disciplines. Scientists explore the natural world and show us how and why it is as it is. Discovery is the essence of science.
