Zum ersten Mal liegt die Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) auf Deutsch vor. Die 1876 von Melvil Dewey begründete und international weit verbreitete Klassifikation wird von der Library of Congress seit über 80 Jahren angewendet und stellt für Bibliografien und Bibliothekskataloge im angloamerikanischen Raum das wichtigste Instrument zur Inhaltserschließung dar. Auch im World Wide Web ist die DDC die am häufigsten genutzte Universalklassifikation. Die Deutsche Bibliothek und die Fachhochschule Köln haben im Rahmen eines von der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft finanzierten Projekts die 2003 erschienene Standard Edition der DDC 22 übersetzt und damit die Grundlage für die Nutzung der DDC im deutschsprachigen Raum geschaffen. In vier Bänden verzeichnet die DDC in etwa 60.000 Hauptklassen das gesamte Weltwissen in einer hierarchisch gegliederten Form, ergänzt durch umfangreiche Hilfstafeln für alle geografischen, ethnografischen und sprachlichen Einheiten und ein alphabetisches Register mit etwa 80.000 Einträgen. Ab 2006 wird die Dewey-Dezimalklassifikation auch für die Deutsche Nationalbibliografie angewendet werden, schon jetzt bietet sie den sachlichen Zugang zu Millionen DDC-erschlossener Titel aus angloamerikanischen Fremddaten in deutschen Bibliotheken und ist die Grundlage für das Klassifizieren mit einem weltweit genutzten System.

Petrels, albatrosses, and storm-petrels are among the most beautiful yet least known of all the world's birds, living their lives at sea far from the sight of most people. Largely colored in shades of gray, black, and white, these enigmatic and fast-flying seabirds can be hard to differentiate, particularly from a moving boat. Useful worldwide, not just in North America, this photographic guide is based on unrivaled field experience and combines insightful text and hundreds of full-color images to help you identify these remarkable birds. The first book of its kind, this guide features an introduction that explains ocean habitats and the latest developments in taxonomy. Detailed species accounts describe key identification features such as flight manner, plumage variation related to age and molt, seasonal occurrence patterns, and migration routes. Species accounts are arranged into groups helpful for field identification, and an overview of unique identification challenges is provided for each group. The guide also includes distribution maps for regularly occurring species as well as a bibliography, glossary, and appendixes. The first state-of-the-art photographic guide to these enigmatic seabirds Includes hundreds of full-color photos throughout Features detailed species accounts that describe flight, plumage, distribution, and more Provides overviews of ocean habitats, taxonomy, and conservation Offers tips on how to observe and identify birds at sea

The Birds of Michigan is a major publishing event. It is the first popular, comprehensive survey of Michigan's birds in over forty years. Some of the state's leading ornithologist-naturalists have provided species accounts for more than 400 birds seen in the state. These accounts cover current status, distribution, history, habitat, seasonal occurrence, and general North American (or worldwide) breeding and wintering ranges. All of the authors incorporate field observations from Michigan. The 200 species which nest in the state are depicted in 115 full-page color paintings produced especially for this volume by five of Michigan's best-known wildlife artists.
