New Audubon was not the father of American ornithology. That honorific belongs to Alexander Wilson, whose encyclopedic American Ornithology established a distinctive approach that emphasized the observation of live birds. In the first full-length study to reproduce all of Wilson's unpublished drawings for the nine-volume Ornithology, Edward Burtt and William Davis illustrate Wilson's pioneering and, today, underappreciated achievement as the first ornithologist to describe the birds of the North American wilderness. Abandoning early ambitions to become a poet in the mold of his countryman Robert Burns, Wilson emigrated from Scotland to settle near Philadelphia, where the botanist William Bartram encouraged his proclivity for art and natural history. Wilson traveled 12, 000 miles on foot, on horseback, in a rowboat, and by stage and ship, establishing a network of observers along the way. He wrote hundreds of accounts of indigenous birds, discovered many new species, and sketched the behavior and ecology of each species he encountered. Drawing on their expertise in both science and art, Burtt and Davis show how Wilson defied eighteenth-century conventions of biological illustration by striving for realistic depiction of birds in their native habitats. He drew them in poses meant to facilitate identification, making his work the model for modern field guides and an inspiration for Audubon, Spencer Fullerton Baird, and other naturalists who followed. On the bicentennial of his death, this beautifully illustrated volume is a fitting tribute to Alexander Wilson and his unique contributions to ornithology, ecology, and the study of animal behavior.

Since the 1960s, British multi-media artist Peter Greenaway has shocked and intrigued audiences with his avant-garde approach to filmmaking and other artistic ventures. From early experimental films to provocative features, Greenaway has deployed strategies associated with structuralist cinema, only to challenge or critique the very limits of that cinema and of film in general. In this collection of essays, scholars from a variety of disciplines explore various postmodern and poststructuralist aspects of Greenaway's films, starting with his early shorts and delving into his feature-length works, including The Draughtman's Contract, The Belly of an Architect, A Zed and Two Noughts, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover, The Baby of M%con, and The Pillow Book. Other artistic...
The Guinness PRO14 season is well and truly up and running now as a number of new faces settle into their new surroundings. Signings always generate interest and debate among fans, who are intrigued to see how they'll fare in their new colours. There was a healthy turnover in players this summer, particularly at the rebuilding Dragons, so there is much to assess. Some players have been able to hit the ground running and their new teams but others are requiring a little more time to get up to speed. CARDIFF BLUES. Dmitri Arhip. The Blues pulled off a significant coup in snapping up Arhip this summer and everyone in Welsh rugby knew what they were getting. The Moldovan proved himself as one of the league's top scrummagers at the Ospreys and is also useful around the field. He's continued to show that during his early days in the Welsh capital too and particularly during the defeat to Benetton when he helped his side get on top at scrum time. His departure saw the tables turn at the set piece and another late defeat followed. The winger came back to Wales with a point to prove after he was forced to leave the Scarlets as a youngster amid a lack of opportunities. Harries hit the ground running in some style, bagging himself a brace against Leinster on the opening weekend and putting in some astute defensive work. In anyone's book, that's a positive start and if he can continue to show similar form on a consistent basis, we could have a fan favourite on our hands. He impressed the Blues coaches in pre-season and has talked about his Wales ambitions here. Jordan Williams. Another whose talents are familiar to Welsh fans. His sharp feet and turn of pace are what pushed him to the cusp of a Wales cap that never materialised on tour of South Africa in 2014. There may be questions marks over some areas of his game but his counter-attacking capabilities are not to be... Will be available all year round so is likely to prove a good signing. Rhodri Williams. Possesses international qualities, as his four Wales caps prove. Threatening around the fringes and slick service more often than not, he's made a good start to his life at Rodney Parade and is also likely to turn out to be a good acquisition. Was perhaps slightly unfortunate to get yellow-carded against the Southern Kings but that's the risk you take when going for an interception. It's very early days for the British and Irish Lion at Rodney Parade and he was good on his debut without setting the place on fire. Given it's his first game since Wales' second victory over Argentina in June, that's perfectly understandable. That being said, his 11 carries and, in particular, 17 tackles represents commendable work-rate. When he gets up to speed, he'll start really firing. Perhaps not the smoothest of starts to his time with the Dragons but not many came out of the opening weekend loss to Benetton with much credit. He will be heavily rotated with Elliot Dee throughout the course of the season and will still offer plenty both on and off the field. Another who is likely to still be finding his feet at the region amid significant turnover in players. Had to be content with coming off the bench in the opening game with Gavin Henson getting the nod at No. 10 but was handed a chance from the start against the Southern Kings. With the injured Henson looking on, Lewis had a very decent outing, scoring 17 points that included a brilliant score that saw him gather Williams' box kick and sprint away from the defence. The scrum-half seems to have settled quite quickly at the Liberty Stadium, which has probably helped the backline hit their straps. Has been name-checked by head coach Allen Clarke, which is always a good sign. Isn't someone who will be making numerous breaks around the fringes but gets the ball away quickly and accurately. Scott Williams. Has settled in quite nicely around some familiar faces at the Ospreys. His all-court game really came to the fore in.
