All Flesh Is Grass: Plant-Animal Interrelationships by Julian Chela-Flores, Maria Eugenia Montenegro, Nevio

By Julian Chela-Flores, Maria Eugenia Montenegro, Nevio Pugliese, Vinod C. Tewari (auth.), Zvy Dubinsky, Joseph Seckbach (eds.)

This new ebook takes us via a trip from youth to fashionable agriculture. The thirty 8 authors current present stories at the interrelation of plants-animals. This subject has consistently involved guy, as evidenced even by way of the 1st chapters of Genesis. the area of aqueous and terrestrial fauna seemed on early earth in simple terms after the plant life coated the components with the golf green pigmentation. just about all existence will depend on solar through the photosynthesis of the botanical global. We learn abut the harnessing of bee pollination of vegetation to make it an integral part of recent agriculture activity. a few vegetation seduce bugs for pollination by means of their visual appeal (e.g., disguised orchids appeal to visitors); there's the construction of candy nectar as a bribe in vegetation to draw bees, butterflies, and honey-sucking birds. a specific extraordinary phenomena are the carnivorous vegetation that experience built trapping and digesting platforms of bugs and better animals.

THE FIRST HOMININS Hominins emerged in the animal kingdom around 6–7 Ma BP. The hominin clad includes the humans and all their ancestors back to the human–ape separation. They are identified by two main traits from the great apes: bipedalism (with the associated differences in pelvis, spine, knee, and foot) and skull shape (with the associated change in brain size and shape), both probably induced by evolutionary effects that can be classified as animal–plant interaction. Australopithecins are the hominins preceding the homo species and showing their presence in the fossil record approximately between 4 and 1 Ma BP.
