 The book of nature (December 2006) - Physics World - PhysicsWeb
Nature, he wrote, is a book written in "the language of mathematics".
Nature, the first book, is full of signs that reveal a deeper meaning when interpreted according to scripture, the second book, which supplies the ultimate meaning or syntax of nature's signs.
The image of the book of nature now implied something almost opposite to what it had before – that the signs of nature had their own self-contained meaning.

 Nature Journal
Since making the nature page, I have had many questions on how to make a nature journal, what could/should be included, what types of notebooks are used, glues used, books which are helpful, how to draw nature, and what types of mediums are best.
It was a private nature diary of a woman who loved the changing seasons of England and recorded poetry, drawings in watercolor of wildlife, Latin names and common names of flowers, birds, insects and trees which she observed near her home in Olton, Warwickshire.
This book is now out of print, but you may find this and other books by her in out -of-print searches.

  Christopher Alexander's The Nature of Order
This book promises to be of interest to computer programmers, and in the words of some enthusiasts, could define "a new paradigm for programming".
The Nature of Order offers a golden thread that connects the innermost center of who we are as humans with the physical environment that we have the potential to create.
If its profound argument -- that order in both nature and in what we build are essentially the same -- is ultimately understood and accepted by serious readers it may prove to be one of the most consequential works Oxford has published in all its 500 years.

 The Everything Kids' Nature Book
I thought this book was well designed with lots of facts and activities as well as the main text.
The part I liked the most about this book was the part at the back where it listed spots to camp out in nature and books and web sites related to the subject.
I found that a lot of the activities in this book were more focused on younger kids and having fun rather than on teaching you anything, and it was very obvious what was going to happen in some of the activities.

Nature has its own unique essence, a unifying energy, process and consciousness through which it produces its perfection, its optimums of life, diversity, cooperation, purity, peace and balance.
Nature's essence does not create garbage; nothing is left out, everything belongs.
For this reason, inherently, our many natural senses - including hunger, thirst, trust, community, place and belonging, along with 48 others- are fulfilled in nature without producing pollution and other disorders In nature-connected societies a person's natural senses bond to nature's essence and strengthen it as it supports and renews them.

 BASIC NATURE - Book Information
Basic Nature offes a revealing view of the essential concepts on which all science is based.
Throughout the book Andrew Scott builds up a wide-ranging view of nature, starting with the foundations of physics and continuing through the principles of chemistry to the biochemical and biological forces that lie at the heart of life.
Finally, he provides a summary of some of the most important mysteries that remain to be solved: the origin and fate of the universe, the origin of life and the true nature of consciousness.

 What's Not in Your Genes - The New York Review of Books
Somehow the adherents of the "nurture" side of the argument have scared themselves silly at the power and inevitability of genes and missed the greatest lesson of all: the genes are on their side.
He claims, for instance, that "heritability is usually highest for those features of human nature caused by many genes rather than by the action of single genes." But since we have no idea how many genes underlie virtually any aspect of human nature, it's hard to see how we could possibly know this.
Because the question of nature versus nurture concerns the quantitative effects of inherited differences among individuals, it is statistical; because Ridley's answer concerns the molecular behavior of genes within individuals, it is mechanistic.

 Nature Writing Definitions
Nature authors "will admit that their presence affects the nature they observe, but they wish to intrude as little as possible.
Nature writing, then, is a form of story confirming that we are still alive, still capable, and that fulfillment, after all our flailing around, might be in something as radically simple as a blue-sky day.
Scholars who study nature writing continue to define what it is that they are doing (and with what kind of literary and rhetorical work.) Literary ecocriticism, which embraces both literature (in all genres) and environmental consciousness, is the most recent definition, as defined by articles in The Ecocriticism Reader.

 Book of Nature
Nature has placed in the natural sweets enough of the organic mineral elements, and water and oxygen, to satisfy their "desire" for these elements.
One of the many advantages of natural treatment is that it may be applied right from the beginning, as soon as the first symptoms of acute febrile conditions manifest themselves.
But during this period of indecision and inaction very often the best opportunity for aiding Nature in her healing efforts is lost, and the inflammatory processes may reach such virulence that it becomes very difficult or even impossible to keep them within constructive limits.

 The first step toward a definitive bioinformatics textbook - Nature Genetics
Although computer scientists may well find this book an interesting overview of sequence analysis, the book concentrates far more on educating the reader on the principles behind the analysis, and not predominantly on the computer science involved.
The book also is not for the researcher who just received an account on the departmental bioinformatics server and wants to know how to run the programs.
The book is worth purchasing if only for the extensive bibliographies at the end of each chapter.

 New Health, Science & Nature Book: counseling, education & ecopsychology; grants, jobs & degrees for ...
The IGE research team has discovered that as we learn how to help nature rejuvenate and thereby remove the harmful sensory void in our psyche, we therapeutically reduce a major source of the destructive, endless wanting and hurt that is generated by the void.
There, as is their natural purpose, these sensory energies renew, guide and motivate you to act in more sensitive, life supportive, ways.
Dramatically, through the book's ethic and activities, the passions that survival sensations create in us transform the evil of our apathy into the joy of more motivated and thoughtful participation in naturally balanced, and rewarding relationships.

A book filled with creative activities, but one that is best used with adult help because of the difficult reading level, insufficient number of illustrations, and very small print.

 Mother/Nature - Book Review Humanist - Find Articles
The problem arises when too much is expected of Mother Nature; both mother and nature are seen as infinite sources of providing, caring, and self-sacrificing to the point where mothers and nature find themselves exhausted and depleted.
She argues that, in the infant stage, mother becomes equated with all of nature because mother is all that the infant knows.
She also believes that coupling nature too closely to a gender negatively impacts both feminist and environmental causes, so this coupling should be avoided.

The final selection of the book of the year was based mainly on the quality of the photographs.
Naturally the make up, the printing of the book and the total visual impact had a certain role in the selection.

 Book Review - Nature Girl: The Latest Florida Mystery from Carl Hiaasen
In Nature Girl, we meet Honey Santana, a likeable -- if somewhat loony -- single mother battling her boss' sexual advances and other injustices in the world.
Nature Girl makes for an enjoyable, light, winter read, but the plot lacks the "almost believability" of Hiaasen's previous novels.
Somehow, as amusing as the book's antics are, we just can't imagine -- even on a bad day -- anyone actually caring that much about a telemarketer.

 The Book of Nature
Early Christian doctrine held that God was the author of two texts, the Book of God, or The Bible, and The Book of Nature.
The great metaphor of the book that opens, that one pores over and reads in order to know nature, is merely the reverse and visible side of another transference, and a much deeper one, which forces language to reside in the world, among the plants, the herbs, the stones, and the animals.
The Book of Nature, as another manifestation of The Book, reveals the enormous impact which the linear model of textual organization has had not only our values of what constitutes literature (its importance being especially evident in the emergence of the novel) but on the way in which we have imagined our world.

 Book Review: Nature Never Stops Talking by Kev B. — creation, nature, books | Gather
When I first got the book, I expected a series of essays on how the author was walking in the woods and heard the crickets chirping and that reminded him of the angels singing praises to God - or something like that.
Instead, the articles and essays are well thought out and researched observations of the facts of everyday life, nature, science, mathematics, astronomy, etc. and how amazing it is that God simply spoke the world into existence creating all these things.
This is a great table-top book for visitors to pick up and browse, or for anyone that loves nature, and loves our Creator-God.

Cohen, you say that your nature connecting work teaches people how to culture their kinship as children of Mother Earth, that this improves their relationships with themselves, society and nature.
With respect to nature, we are as crippled and bewildered (wilderness disconnected) as a person born and raised in a closet.
The natural senses that Dr. Cohen shows we inherit are wise, unspoken, non-material attraction forces that have no name, yet Nature within and about us principally lives with them all along.

 Nature Book Reviews - The Future of Life
Readers of Wilson, a pioneer in the fields of sociobiology and biodiversity who sits on The Nature Conservancy’s governing board, will be familiar with the blunt tone.
After all, this is the same author who has said that if humans go the way of the dinosaur, "we have only ourselves to blame." And the situation does sound bleak in this new book, as Wilson cites the plight of countless imperiled species, including the desperately endangered Sumatran rhino.
His prescription: rebuilding Earth’s lost wilderness using "megaprojects" that connect existing parks and reserves through large natural corridors and developing a new "global land ethic" that "listen[s] carefully to the heart, then acts with rational intention."
