Fireflies Glow Worms And Lightning Bugs

This is the first comprehensive firefly guide for eastern and central North America ever published. It is written for all those who want to know more about the amazing world of lightning bugs and learn the secrets hidden in the flash patterns of the 75+ species found in the eastern and central U.S. and Canada. As an independent researcher working with numerous university teams, naturalist Lynn Frierson Faust, “The Lightning Bug Lady,” has spent decades tracking the behavior and researching the habitats of these fascinating creatures. Based on her twenty-five years of field work, this book is intended to increase understanding and appreciation of bioluminescent insects while igniting enthusiasm in a fun and informative way. Species accounts are coupled with historical background and literary epigraphs to engage and draw readers young and old into the world of these tiny sparklers. A chart documenting the flash patterns of the various species will aid in identification. Clear photos illustrate the insects’ distinguishing physical characteristics, while habitats, seasonality, and common names are provided in clear, easy-to-understand yet scientifically accurate language. The guide will be welcomed by everyone who wants to learn more about fireflies' and glow-worms' unique traits and about their fragile niche in the ecosystem.

Fireflies

A lyrical and philosophical exploration of seemingly unrelated people and events in modern history, drawing them together to form a whole. How do we even begin to narrate the history of the world? Where do we start, and where do we end? Fireflies is Sagasti’s bold and original attempt to answer these questions. Roaming across time and geography, he lights on an eclectic array of characters and events that at first glance seem unrelated, and teases out their stories to reveal unexpected points of contact between them. Stanley Kubrick, Joseph Beuys, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Neil Armstrong, Ludwig Wittgenstein, the Beatles, Japanese poets, Brazilian priests, Russian cosmonauts and many more cross these pages, and Sagasti finds common threads that weave them together into a single narrative. The fireflies themselves perhaps provide the key to understanding this book. They become a metaphor for the resistance of certain luminous moments, certain twinkling fragments of history, to the passing of time. They remind us that events do not always simply disappear neatly into the darkness, but rather remain, floating in the air, lighting up the night sky indefinitely. Sagasti shows us that the present moment, like this novel, is a tapestry woven of a multiplicity of times. Using his unique, poetic and keenly observant style, Sagasti transforms the accidents of history into a single, lyrical constellation, and for the reader it is an extraordinary sight.

Bio Inspired Computing For Image And Video Processing

In recent years bio-inspired computational theories and tools have developed to assist people in extracting knowledge from high dimensional data. These differ in how they take a more evolutionary approach to learning, as opposed to traditional artificial intelligence (AI) and what could be described as 'creationist' methods. Instead bio-inspired computing takes a bottom-up, de-centralized approach that often involves the method of specifying a set of simple rules, a set of simple organisms which adhere to those rules, and of iteratively applying those rules. Bio-Inspired Computing for Image and Video Processing covers interesting and challenging new theories in image and video processing. It addresses the growing demand for image and video processing in diverse application areas, such as secured biomedical imaging, biometrics, remote sensing, texture understanding, pattern recognition, content-based image retrieval, and more. This book is perfect for students following this topic at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. It will also prove indispensable to researchers who have an interest in image processing using bio-inspired computing.
