The book may be used as
a textbook for graduate and undergraduate students, for interested
school teachers and the public. It should be attractive and relevant
to all readers interested in understanding the pre-history of our own
species, their migration routes and motivation to migrate, triggered
by complex interactions of their culture and environment.
This field guide covers northern to central Tanzania, southern Kenya
and parts of central Kenya. Most species are illustrated by live
specimens; generally, adult males and females are depicted, along with
selected nymphal stages. For species-rich genera, morphological
details are provided, together with keys to genera and species as well
as distribution maps for most taxa. The enclosed DVD features the
songs of 185 species.
The book covers the entire field of geology applied to mineral
deposits, including industrial minerals, coal and
hydrocarbons. Illuminating insights, for example, can be gained from
sediments, rich in organic matter, that are primarily source rocks of
conventional hydrocarbons, but also host unconventional oil and gas,
and metal deposits.
