      In Gods We Trust was published a year after Pascal Boyer's Religion Explained: The Evolutionary Origins of Religious Thought, which covers the same basic ground (Atran admits as much in the first endnote to this book) in a less intimidating fashion. For the academic reader, Atran's book is probably very valuable.4/5. The key ideas of Postmodernism are set forth in two important books by Robert Venturi. In his groundbreaking book, Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture, Venturi challenged modernism and celebrated the mix of historic styles in great cities such as Rome.

      While there has been much debate about the subsequent uplift, erosion, and evolution of the landscape associated with this rift, the large-scale morphology is roughly similar to other passive margins around the world (Matmon et al., ), although an important difference exists in that the drainage divide occurs inland of the scarp crest. Shaping a Nation: A Geology of Australia is the story of a continent's geological evolution as seen through the lens of human impacts. Exploring the geology, resources and landscapes of Australia, the book reveals how these have helped to shape this nation's society, environment and wealth.

Landscape Evolution in the United States is an accessible text that balances interdisciplinary theory and application within the physical geography, geology, geomorphology, and climatology of the United States. Landscape evolution refers to the changing terrain of any given area of the Earth's crust over time. Common causes of evolution (or geomorphology—land morphing into a different size.

A former Kentucky poet laureate, he is the author of six collections of poetry, two novels, and several books of non-fiction, mostly relating to Kentucky history/5(1).

The book focuses on geological history as the critical factor in determining the present biodiversity and landscapes of Amazonia. The different driving mechanisms for landscape evolution are explored by reviewing the history of the Amazonian Craton, the associated sedimentary basins, and the role of mountain uplift and climate change.

The definitive, one-stop reference to the history of landscape architecture-now expanded and revised This revised edition of Landscapes in History features for the first time new information-rarely available elsewhere in the literature-on landscape architecture in India, China, Southeast Asia, and Japan.

It also expands the discussion of the modern period, including current North American /5(3). Landscape Architecture Theory provides an insightful introduction to the evolving body of knowledge that underpins the discipline and practice of landscape architecture.

The author s treatment emphasizes the interrelationships between the biophysical and human dimensions of the environment and the theories and decision-making processes that issue from these by: What has taken the place of Davis and other all-encompassing models of landscape evolution is best presented in Stan Schumm’s book, “To Interpret the Earth: Ten Ways to Go Wrong.” Dr.

landscape architecture and the man-made landscape and environment. Such a theory would involve an investigation of the fomnation of the garden image, since this image will be the expression of an attitude towards nature ata given stage in the development of civiliza-tion.

An "image" in landscape architec-ture is something specific to its own. Taylor has written numerous books, including Sue Mundy: A Novel of the Civil War, Girty, and Earth Bones.” – Back Cover. Elkhorn: Evolution of a Kentucky Landscape is a book in which Richard Taylor tells of the history of a small section of one of Kentucky’s longest creeks, Elkhorn Creek.

Taylor was introduced to the Elkhorn in when. According to McCoy (), the first evolutionary landscape was presented by Armand Janet of Toulon, France in In Janet's evolutionary landscape, a species is represented as a point or an area on a polydimensional surface of phenotypes, which is reduced to two dimensions for simplicity.

Interspersed with photographs and illustrations — contemporary and historic — and intermixed with short vignettes about historical figures of the region, Elkhorn: Evolution of a Kentucky Landscape delivers a history that is by turns a vibrant and meditative personal response to the creek and its many : University Press of Kentucky.

The book begins with a discussion of how rock type and rock structure combine with tectonic activity, climate, isostasy and sea level change to produce landscape and then explores predicting how landscape will evolve.

The book goes on to apply those concepts to specific examples throughout the United States, making it a valuable resource for understanding theoretical geological concepts. The evolution of the local landscape, as well as the origin of the superficial sediments and the study of the patterned ground widely seen as soil or crop patterns is explained.

Most of the observations and explanations relate to periods of cold climate during the last few hundred thousand years, including a period when the Fenland was invaded.

Dynamic Mars: Recent and Current Landscape Evolution of the Red Planet presents the latest observations, interpretations, and explanations of geological change at the surface or near-surface of this terrestrial body. These changes raise questions about a decades-old paradigm, formed largely in the aftermath of very coarse Mariner-mission.

Artists have been painting the landscape since ancient times. The Greeks and Romans created wall paintings of landscapes and gardenscapes. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the tradition of depicting pure landscapes declined, and the landscape was seen only as a.

Computational models are invaluable in understanding the complex effects of physical processes and environmental factors which interact to influence landform evolution of geologic time scales.
