Genre: Medical

The standard work for ophthalmology in veterinary practise – now completely revised and extended. In its modern layout, the new edition continues a tried and tested concept. The present day developments in ophthalmological diagnostics and therapy are supplemented comprehensively throughout the book. In ophthalmology, the paramount maxim is "Learning by doing". This book provides a concrete guide to diagnostics and therapy of all important eye diseases in small animals especially for those general veterinary practitioners without any specific experience in ophthalmology and to students. It enables the determination of a diagnosis even without specialised instruments, while at the same time it gives answers to the important questions: When should an eye patient be referred to a specialist? Which preparations are necessary for doing this? Specific veterinary features in pet animals, horses, birds and farm animals are compared. A special chapter dedicated to ophthalmological emergencies enables quick and assured actions to be undertaken in emergency situations. The structure of the book follows the steps of a clinical examination making it particularly user–friendly. First–class new colour photographs and instructive drawings illustrate symptoms, diagnosis and treatment methods.

Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit

Author: Yuval Noah Harari
Publisher: DVA
ISBN: 9783641104986
Release Date: 2013-09-02
Genre: History

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
