Gibt es einen "7. Sinn"?: Außergewöhnliche Wahrnehmungen und by Müller PDF

By Müller

Dieses Buch beschreibt außergewöhnliche Wahrnehmungen und unglaubliche Fähigkeiten von Menschen und Tieren, die oftmals einem „siebten Sinn“ zugeschrieben werden, aus der Sicht der heutigen Lebenswissenschaften. Zentrale Themen sind unbewusste Wahrnehmung, die kritische Bewertung von Berichten über Sprachverständnis von Tieren und außersinnlicher Gedankenübertragung. Weitere Themen sind die vermeintliche, und manchmal auch erlebbare, heilende Wirkung von Homöopathie und Magneten. Es wird von verblüffenden Versuchen der gegenwärtigen Hirnforschung berichtet, von der Wahrnehmung unbelebter Gegenstände als körpereigene Glieder, der Wahrnehmung des ICH an einem vom Körper entfernten Ort, von sogenannten Nahtoderfahrungen und von der Suche nach deren neurophysiologischen Grundlagen. Schließlich wird die Frage erörtert, ob Empfindungen, Bewusstsein und Geist nur auf „Physik und Chemie“ beruhen; dabei werden die Grenzen naturwissenschaftlicher Forschung und Erklärungsmöglichkeiten aufgezeigt.

Phosphorus in Fresh Water and the Marine Environment: by S. H. Jenkins,K. J. Ives PDF

By S. H. Jenkins,K. J. Ives

Phosphorus in clean Water and the Marine atmosphere investigates assets of phosphorus in clean water and the marine surroundings and the issues it factors. the significance of phosphate precipitation as an built in protection equipment opposed to overproduction of algae within the oceans is mentioned, besides the deposition and absorption of phosphates in sediments. The resource of the phosphorus in lakes and rivers is taken into account when it comes to inhabitants density and distribution.
This ebook is produced from 26 chapters and starts with a dialogue on normal phosphate resources on the subject of phosphate budgets, paying specific awareness to eutrophication and soil erosion. the importance of artificial resources of phosphorus, corresponding to fertilizers and farming, detergents and sewage, is then tested. next chapters specialize in the position of phosphorus within the progress of vegetation and animals in rivers, lakes, and the ocean; the hydrogeochemical biking of phosphorus; phosphorus research in sea water; and safeguard assessment of substitutes for phosphates in detergents. The microbiology of an activated sludge wastewater remedy plant chemically handled for phosphorus elimination is usually explored.
This monograph should be of curiosity to policymakers desirous about water toxins control.

Download e-book for kindle: Speech Odyssey: The Story of Vocal Communication – from by Trevor Cox

By Trevor Cox

Trevor Cox has been defined by way of the Observer as ‘a David Attenborough of the acoustic realm’. In Speech Odyssey he is taking us on a trip in the course of the wonders of human speech, beginning with the evolution of language and our organic power to talk (and listen), and bringing us brand new with the newest computing device expertise that seeks to list, remodel and mimic the human voice.

Language is what makes us human, and the way we converse is quintessential to our own id. yet with the discovery of sound recording and the coming of the electrified voice, human verbal exchange replaced eternally; now advances in computing device technology and synthetic intelligence are promising a good larger transformation. And with it come the chances to breed, manage and mirror the human voice – occasionally with traumatic effects.

Speech Odyssey is the attention-grabbing tale of our skill to speak. It takes us again to the center of our humanity, asking vital questions about what makes us human and the way this distinctiveness can be threatened. in this illuminating journey we meet vocal coaches and list manufacturers, neuroscientists and desktop programmers, whose event and study supply us with a deeper figuring out of anything that the majority people take with no consideration – our skill to speak and listen.

Nadja Podbregar,Dieter Lohmann's Im Fokus: Paläontologie: Spurensuche in der Urzeit PDF

By Nadja Podbregar,Dieter Lohmann

Warum gibt es keine Mammuts mehr? Wen jagte der Tyrannosaurus rex? Und conflict der Neandertaler wirklich eine Sackgasse der Evolution?  Um diese Fragen zu beantworten, müsste guy eigentlich zurück in die Urzeit reisen können. Doch den Paläontologen gelingt es heute dank modernster Methoden auch ohne Zeitmaschine, aus fossilen Knochen, Pflanzenrelikten, aber auch Resten urzeitlicher DNA faszinierende Einblicke in die Tier- und Pflanzenwelt vergangener Epochen zu gewinnen. Dieses Buch stellt einige ihrer Erkenntnisse vor und erklärt unter anderem, warum Vögel eigentlich Dinosaurier sind, wie viel Wahrheit im Säbelzahnkater Diego aus dem movie „Ice Age“ steckt und used to be unsere Gene heute noch über unsere Vorfahren verraten.

Download e-book for kindle: Lehr- und Lernforschung in der Biologiedidaktik: Band 6 by Marcus Hammann,Jürgen Mayer,Nicole Wellnitz

By Marcus Hammann,Jürgen Mayer,Nicole Wellnitz

Der vorliegende Band vereint theoretische und empirische Originalarbeiten über aktuelle Forschungsprojekte, die 2013 auf der Internationalen Tagung der Fachsektion Didaktik der Biologie an der Universität Kassel präsentiert wurden. Mit dem Tagungsthema "Theorie, Empirie & Praxis" wird das fachdidaktische Selbstverständnis einer theoretischen, empirischen und praxisbezogenen Fachdidaktik Biologie verdeutlicht: biologiedidaktische Forschung stützt sich auf Theorien, strebt empirische Evidenzen zur Verbesserung des Biologieunterrichts und der Ausbildung von Lehrkräften an und ist als eine anwendungsbezogene Wissenschaft der Optimierung des fachbezogenen Lernens und Lehrens verpflichtet. Evidenzorientierung ist dabei ein wesentliches Kriterium, an dem sich fachdidaktische Forschung messen lassen muss.
Die Palette unterschiedlicher Themen in diesem Band ist breit:
- Diagnose und Entwicklung von Modellkompetenz
- Informationsentnahme aus Texten und Bildern
- Naturwissenschaftsverständnis
- Alltagsphantasien
- Anforderungsprofile von Abituraufgaben
- Forschendes Lernen
- Übergänge Schule-Hochschule sowie Hochschule-Referendariat
- Sachunterrichtsausbildung
Die Herausgeber dieses Bandes hoffen - im Namen der Fachsektion Didaktik der Biologie im VBIO, die inzwischen speedy 500 Mitglieder zählt - einen Beitrag zur Diskussion über das Lehren und Lernen im Fach und zur Verbesserung der Ausbildung angehender Lehrkräfte zu leisten.
