  • Victoire a enfin réussi à attirer l'attention de Finn-le-magnifique mais fréquenter le garçon le plus convoité de la ville n'est pas de tout repos. Elle doit défendre son territoire à grand coups de croche-pattes, obliger ses camarades à organiser des soirées en son honneur et convaincre ses professeurs qu'un club de débat en partenariat avec le lycée de garçons devrait être LA priorité éducative de l'année. Tout cela serait plus facile si ses meilleures amies n'avaient pas la ridicule prétention de s'intéresser à leur propre existence au lieu de lui vouer un culte bien mérité. Les grands génies sont incompris mais Victoire est loin d'être à cours de ressources ! Une question subsiste néanmoins : pourquoi n'arrive-t-elle pas à quitter Ethan des yeux alors qu'elle sort enfin avec le garçon de ses rêves ?
    à partir de 11 ans

  • One of the first textbooks in this emerging important field of ecology.
    Most of ecology is about metabolism: the ways that organisms use energy and materials. The energy requirements of individuals - their metabolic rates - vary predictably with their body size and temperature. Ecological interactions are exchanges of energy and materials between organisms and their environments. So metabolic rate affects ecological processes at all levels: individuals, populations, communities and ecosystems. Each chapter focuses on a different process, level of organization, or kind of organism. It lays a conceptual foundation and presents empirical examples. Together, the chapters provide an integrated framework that holds the promise for a unified theory of ecology. The book is intended to be accessible to upper-level undergraduate, and graduate students, but also of interest to senior scientists. Its easy-to-read chapters and clear illustrations can be used in lecture and seminar courses. Together they make for an authoritative treatment that will inspire future generations to study metabolic ecology.
