Description : Traces the origins and evolution of human beings, from the earliest prehistoric fossil record to the latest evidence based on genetic research.
Description : A great war has just ravaged the Pleiades galaxy, leaving two of its residents without a choice but to reside in a new solar system. The Annunaki, an aggressive species determined to become a galactic power, have taken residency on Nibiru. The more peaceful Eolusians have relocated to Mars. Now the two conflicting cultures must not only adapt to each other and their new worlds, but also find a way to survive. After it is discovered a nearby planet harbors essential resources, the Eolusians attempt to protect the planet while the Annunaki plot to take it over.

Description : A clash of galactic empires, An ancient alliance in crisis and defeat, A desperate plan for survival, The Dawn of MAN In 50,000 BC the Reiign was an ancient race with a far-flung galactic empire when cave men roamed the earth. Their golden age spanned many millennia and brought their philosophy of peaceful co-existence and technological exchange to many sentient species and solar systems in their spiral arm of the Milky Way galaxy. Their march towards universal self-determination was shattered by an invading menace from the Large Magellanic Cloud. The clash of equally ancient but diametrically opposed cultures left the Reiign, a race genetically cleansed of most aggressive tendencies for many thousands of years, facing annihilation. Desperate situations breed desperate measures A group of scientists escaped to the last frontier of the galaxy. In a last ditch attempt to save their empire and culture, they devised a stratagem to defeat the invaders. Their plan, a 50,000 year genetic breeding project, results in the creation of the perfect warrior, a biological construct bred for aggression and genetically optimized for war; a being sociologically conditioned to the shedding of blood on a mass scale, the ultimate killing machinethey created MAN!
Description : A guide to dinosaurs, each with a description of how, where, and when it lived, plus the latest information about its size, diet, and evolutionary significance.
Description : Diseases of Man Acquired from his Pets provides guideline of the diseases that man may acquire from animals. This book is composed of nine chapters. The chapters are divided broadly into the types of animals kept as pets. This book begins with a general introduction to animal pets. The subsequent chapters deal with diseases acquired from carnivores, birds, and rodents, with a particular emphasis on leptospirosis, which affects rodents, carnivores, farm animals, man and, to a limited extent, birds. These chapters discuss the epidemiology, clinical signs, symptoms and treatment of this infection. These topics are followed by a chapter on Ungulates, which includes farm animals, the occupational hazards of handling large numbers of animals since livestock are in very close contact with the farmer and farm workers. Similarly, the occupational hazards from birds (factory farming) through Newcastle disease, which sometimes affects pet birds (parrots), and other diseases are explored. The remaining chapters concern certain infectious diseases acquired from reptiles, amphibians, fish, and arthropods. This book is of value to practitioners and students, both of human and veterinary medicine, and those interested in animal care.
