New in HOORC's Library: Savannah lives
Savannah lives : animal life and human evolution in Africa , an English translation of the book by Staffan Ulfstrand, explains the geology of the African continent and the climatic changes that have shaped its vegetation, and follows with a description of how the savannah is still being modified by fire, water, wildlife and people. Ulfstrand makes the point that understanding of animal behaviour and evolution can provide insights to much of modern human behaviour. You can find the book in HOORC's Library.
