21L.705 Major Authors: America's Literary Scientists (MIT) 21L.705 Major Authors: America's Literary Scientists (MIT)

Description

Global exploration in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries radically changed Western science, orienting philosophies of natural history to more focused fields like comparative anatomy, botany, and geology. In the United States, European scientific advances and home-grown ventures like the Wilkes Exploring Expedition to Antarctica and the Pacific inspired new endeavors in cartography, ethnography, zoology, and evolutionary theory, replacing rigid models of thought and classification with more fluid and active systems. They inspired literary authors as well. This class will examine some of the most remarkable of these authors—Herman Melville (Moby-Dick and "The Encantadas"), Henry David Thoreau (Walden), Sarah Orne Jewett (Country of the Pointed Firs), Edith Wharton (House Global exploration in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries radically changed Western science, orienting philosophies of natural history to more focused fields like comparative anatomy, botany, and geology.

Vertebrate Diversity

Description

This resource contains a series of information pages broadly outlining the diversity of living vertebrates, with a few notes on their fossil relatives, and includes images of specimens held at UCL’s Grant Museum of zoology. A wide range of vertebrates are covered - from jawless vertebrates, sharks, and ray-finned fishes, to amphibians, reptiles, and mammals. For a more detailed look at their fossil relatives please refer to the resource entitled ‘Vertebrate Palaeontology and Evolution’, which can also be found on JORUM. This resource has been uploaded as a web site zip file to be used within a browser (once unzipped, navigate to the index.html file in the folder to run the resource) and as a .elp file (allowing modification in eXe content packaging software, in addition to subsequent

Vertebrate Palaeontology and Evolution

Description

This resource is designed to familiarise you with the diversity and evolutionary history of vertebrates through analysing images of specimens held at UCL’s Grant Museum of Zoology. It contains seven chapters: an introduction to vertebrate diversity, Fishes, the fish-tetrapod transition, Amphibians and Amniotes, Lepidosaurs and Chelonians, Archosaurs, and Birds and flight. All images have accompanying text, including information about the specimen plus hints about what to look for and the questions to consider when analysing the images. Please note that this resource does not look at mammals in detail – instead, this fascinating group are given a more thorough treatment in another Object Based Learning for Higher Education (OBL4HE) resource entitled ‘Vertebrate Diversity’ and the Vi

Virtual Educational Resource for the Biosciences (VERB) - Eutherians - eXe File

Description

VERB is an online animal diversity resource designed to accompany undergraduate degrees in the Biosciences. In this package, entitled VERB Eutherians, the groups discussed are the living placental mammals. Contained are a series of web pages outlining the diversity of the eutherians from an evolutionary perspective. The topics of focus are phylogeny (evolutionary history) and functional anatomy, but subjects as wide as genetics, ecology, physiology, and developmental biology are discussed where relevant. This file is provided as a .elp file, allowing modification in eXe content packaging software, in addition to subsequent packaging in the desired format (e.g., IMS Content Package, Web Pages).

Letter from Joseph J Gill printed in the Museums Journal, 1915

Description

During the First World War this building was known as the Hancock Museum. The displays looked very different then but would still have contained many of the fascinating natural science objects that they do today. The curator of the museum in 1914 was Edwin Leonard Gill. In 1915 his father, Jospeh J Gill, wrote a letter to the Museums Journal. ?Several of these sets of questions were prepared for me by my son, E. Leonard Gill, the Curator of this Museum, whose place I am temporarily filling whilst he is ?on service in France?. Two at least of the papers were composed amidst the roar of big guns a little behind the firing line? Yours truly, Joseph J Gill, Temporary Curator, Hancock Museum, Newcastle upon Tyne (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons. Please cite 'Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums' when reusing. Certain restrictions on high quality reproductions and commercial use of the original physical version apply though; if you're unsure please email claire.ross@twmuseums.org.uk

Zoology

Description

In this course, the student will gain a broad understanding of zoology starting with an introduction to zoology, followed by a look at the history and evolution of animals, and covering taxonomy, comparative anatomy, and the physiology of animals, as well as animal ecology: the interaction of animals with one another and with their environment. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Biology 309)
