Darwin, Charles; Edited By Glick, Thomas F and Kohn, David
Designed for use in a broad range of courses in the humanities, Darwin's theory is laid out in a concise general introduction and followed up in short chapter introductions. Each chapter concludes with an excerpt from Darwin's correspondence, commenting on the work in question, and its significance, impact, and reception. Two short appendixes are included - the first three chapters from Malthus, 'On Population', which gave Darwin the idea for natural selection and the paper by Wallace that motivated Darwin to abandon the "Big Species Book" and write "Origin of Species". 356pp.

Grid technologies are rising with the next generation of Internet by defining a powerful computing paradigm. Grid could be used as a technology "glue" providing users with a uniform way to access resources by means of several devices. These technologies can provide a support for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) by enabling new learning environments based on collaboration, real direct experience, personalization, ubiquity, accessibility and contextualization. Nevertheless, to be effectively used in TEL, Grid must be complemented with other elements like semantics and educational modeling; leading to the concept of "Learning Grid" as defined in the homonymous Special Interest Group (SIG) of the European Network of Excellence "Kaleidoscope: Shaping the Scientific Evolution of Technology Enhanced Learning".The key challenge that Kaleidoscope is facing is the scientific and structural integration of the European TEL research. In this context, the Learning Grid SIG aims at contributing to the achievement of an improvement in TEL practices through the definition of open, distributed and pervasive environments for effective human learning taking into account that effective learning requires an active attitude of learners and that learning is a social and collaborative activity so requiring a technology that allows for active and realistic experiments, personalization, knowledge creation and evolution, as well as autonomous and dynamic creation of communities. The first section of the book is about the concept of Learning Grid and related technologies. The second chapter analyses and compares existing languages for the dynamic composition of distributed learning resources and services in a Learning Grid. 245pp.

This book, composed of the proceedings of Falk Symposium 98 held in Titisee, Germany, 25-26 May 1997, provides an analysis of the field of extra-intestinal manifestations of IBD, which gastroenterologists frequently see, but which require close contact with other subspecialities. The basic understanding of the pathophysiology of extraintestinal manifestations requires upgrading, based on recent advances in animal models or clinical investigation. While the intestinal manifestations of IBD are increasingly well characterized, the extraintestinal facets of IBD currently are best understood on the basis of sophisticated clinical description, thorough investigation and an excellent clinical standing. Modern techniques in immunology, microbiology, pathobiochemistry and new horizons in imaging methods as well as in surgery, however, have substantially contributed to this knowledge, and the book should therefore foster a mutual exchange between the basic or theoretical disciplines and clinicians, including a variety of different subspecialities in order to stimulate clinical and theoretical research topics. Accordingly, the book embraces both aspects: current knowledge on extraintestinal manifestations of IBD, as well as a definition of objectives and a path for future steps in research. 388pp.N.B.Fading to d/j spine.
