From a leading animal communicator, a heartwarming practical guide to communicating with animals—essential for anyone who loves animals
One of the world’s leading animal communicators and healers, Margrit Coates has many years’ experience working closely with species of all kinds, from horses, dogs, and cats to wildlife, rare breeds, and rescue animals. Here she draws upon her very special gift and amazing experiences to help us connect with animals too. Using intuition, insight, and common sense, she shows how to tune into what they are really thinking and feeling, helping us bond with them at an incredibly deep level. Her powerful techniques range from communicating with the furry, feathered, and scaly friends who share our homes, to larger animals such as horses and even Anne the Elephant, as well as other non-domestic creatures. Ultimately, Margrit’s wish is for each one of us to be able to tune into all life around us. Besides practical exercises and handy tips, this guide is brimming with heartwarming stories, making it a great read and a truly inspirational guide.

Lisa A. Beltz, “Bats and Human Health: Ebola, SARS, Rabies and Beyond”

English | ISBN: 1119150035 | 2017 | 416 pages | PDF | 2 MB

An important resource that reviews the various infectious diseases that affect bats and bat populations
Bats and Human Health: Ebola, SARS, Rabies and Beyond covers existing literature on viral, bacterial, protozoan, and fungal infections of bats and how these infections affect bat populations. The book also offers an overview of the potential for zoonotic transmission of infectious diseases from bats to humans or domestic animals. While most prior publications on the subject have dealt only with bat viral infections, this text closely covers a wide range of bat infections, from viral and bacterial infections to protist and fungal infections.
Chapters on viral infections cover rabies, filoviruses, henipaviruses, and other RNA viruses, as well as information on bat virome studies. The book then provides information on bacterial infections including arthropod–borne and other bacteria that affect bats before moving on to protist infections, including apicomplexans and kinetoplastids, and fungal infections, including white–nose syndrome, histoplasma capsulatum, and other fungi. Comprehensive in scope, yet another key feature of this book is a searchable database that includes bat species, bat family, bat diet, bat location, type and classification of infecting microbes, and categories of microbes. This vital resource also:
Provides a history and comprehensive overview of bat–borne diseases
Incorporates information from the World Health Organization, as well as historical data from the National Libraries of Health and infectious disease journals
Covers a variety of diseases including viral infections, bacterial infections, protist infections, and fungal infections
Written for microbiologist, bat researchers, and conservationists, Bats and Human Health provides a comprehensive exploration of the various types of microbes that affect bats and their potential to affect human populations.

Whales and Dolphins: Cognition, Culture, Conservation and Human Perceptions (Earthscan Oceans) by Philippa Brakes and Mark Peter Simmonds

English | 2011 | ISBN: 1849712247, 1849712255 | 256 pages | PDF | 8 MB

Whales and dolphins are icons for the conservation movement. They are the most conspicuous ambassadors for entire marine ecosystems and possibly even for the biosphere as a whole. Concurrent with our realisation of impending threats to their environment is a growing scientific understanding of the social and cognitive complexity of many of these species.
This book brings together experts in the relevant diverse fields of cetacean research, to provide authoritative descriptions of our current knowledge of the complex behaviour and social organization of whales and dolphins. The authors consider this new information in the context of how different human cultures from around the world view cetaceans and their protection, including attitudes to whaling. They show how new information on issues such as cetacean intelligence, culture and the ability to suffer, warrants a significant shift in global perceptions of this group of animals and how these changes might be facilitated to improve conservation and welfare approaches.

Where Honeybees Thrive: Stories from the Field (Animalibus: Of Animals and Cultures) by Heather Swan

English | 12 Oct. 2017 | ISBN: 0271077417 | ASIN: B076F8YJNC | 176 Pages | AZW3 | 3.57 MB

Colony Collapse Disorder, ubiquitous pesticide use, industrial agriculture, habitat reduction—these are just a few of the issues causing unprecedented trauma in honeybee populations worldwide. In this artfully illustrated book, Heather Swan embarks on a narrative voyage to discover solutions to—and understand the sources of—the plight of honeybees.
Through a lyrical combination of creative nonfiction and visual imagery, Where Honeybees Thrive tells the stories of the beekeepers, farmers, artists, entomologists, ecologists, and other advocates working to stem the damage and reverse course for this critical pollinator. Using her own quest for understanding as a starting point, Swan highlights the innovative projects and strategies these groups employ. Her mosaic approach to engaging with the environment not only reveals the incredibly complex political ecology in which bees live—which includes human and nonhuman actors alike—but also suggests ways of comprehending and tackling a host of other conflicts between postindustrial society and the natural world. Each chapter closes with an illustrative full-color gallery of bee-related artwork.
A luminous journey from the worlds of honey producers, urban farmers, and mead makers of the United States to those of beekeepers of Sichuan, China, and researchers in southern Africa, Where Honeybees Thrive traces the global web of efforts to secure a sustainable future for honeybees—and ourselves.
