Think you know all about the birds and bees? The mating rituals of some creatures are frankly bizarre, frequently disturbing, and endlessly fascinating. After reading this book, you'll look at courtship and sex in a completely different way, astonished when you learn of the honey bee's exploding testicles, the frigatebird's inflatable red heart-shaped throat sac, and the manakin bird’s impressive Michael Jackson style moonwalk. Strange Mates takes an affectionate, tongue-in-cheek look at the mating practices of our neighbors in the animal kingdom and asks the pertinent question: "Are we so different?" The answer, although an emphatic "Yes!", is a fascinating snapshot of the diversity of nature and the propagation of species.

How vocabularies once associated with outsiders became objects of fascination in eighteenth-century Britain While eighteenth-century efforts to standardize the English language have long been studied—from Samuel Johnson's Dictionary to grammar and elocution books of the period—less well-known are the era's popular collections of odd slang, criminal argots, provincial dialects, and nautical jargon. Strange Vernaculars delves into how these published works presented the supposed lexicons of the "common people" and traces the ways that these languages, once shunned and associated with outsiders, became objects of fascination in printed glossaries—from The New Canting Dictionary to Francis Grose's Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue—and in novels, poems, and songs, including works by Daniel Defoe, John Gay, Samuel Richardson, Robert Burns, and others. Janet Sorensen argues that the recognition and recovery of outsider languages was part of a transition in the eighteenth century from an aristocratic, exclusive body politic to a British national community based on the rhetoric of inclusion and liberty, as well as the revaluing of a common British past. These representations of the vernacular made room for the "common people" within national culture, but only after representing their language as "strange." Such strange and estranged languages, even or especially in their obscurity, came to be claimed as British, making for complex imaginings of the nation and those who composed it. Odd cant languages, witty slang phrases, provincial terms newly valued for their connection to British history, or nautical jargon repurposed for sentimental connections all toggle, in eighteenth-century jest books, novels, and poems, between the alluringly alien and familiarly British. Shedding new light on the history of the English language, Strange Vernaculars explores how eighteenth-century British literature transformed the patois attributed to those on the margins into living symbols of the nation. Examples of slang from Strange Vernaculars bum-boat woman: one who sells bread, cheese, greens, and liquor to sailors from a small boat alongside a ship collar day: execution day crewnting: groaning, like a grunting horse gentleman's companion: lice gingerbread-work: gilded carvings of a ship's bow and stern luggs: ears mort: a large amount thraw: to argue hotly and loudly

Primate Behavior: Developments in Field and Laboratory Research, Volume 4 examines developments in field and laboratory research on primate behavior. Topics range from facial expressions in nonhuman primates to the behavior and malnutrition in the rhesus monkey. The population structure and dynamics of the Borneo orang-utan in relation to its ecology and reproductive strategy are also discussed, along with the social organization of Macaca fascicularis. Comprised of six chapters, this volume begins by discussing a field study that uses sound analysis to investigate the link between vocal pattern and social situation in the Japanese monkey (Macaca fuscata). The next chapter focuses on one particular and very important means of visual communication in nonhuman primates: facial expressions. The behavior of marmoset monkeys (Callithricidae) is then considered, with emphasis on their social structure and social organization as well as patterns of social and sexual communication. The remaining chapters explore feeding behavior and malnutrition in the rhesus monkey; the population structure and dynamics of the Borneo orang-utan in relation to its ecology and reproductive strategy; and the social organization and intergroup behavior of Macaca fascicularis. This book should be of interest to biologists and primatologists.
