What’s New about Sleep?
Sleep well for a fuller everyday life
Even though the exact roles of sleep still elude us, we are learning more and more about its effects and influences. Energy metabolism, immunity, cellular activity, cognitive performance, mental health... Current scientific findings reveal that each of these functions benefits from sleep. The product of a collaboration among sleep specialists and a journalist, this book discusses the virtues of sleep and how it contributes to health and well-being. It also examines the potential negative effects of inadequate sleep.
Flora of Ile-de-France
What do we know about the infinite floristic diversity and wealth of the Ile-de-France region?
Extending far beyond received ideas trying to make the capital bled dry of any natural component, this unprecedented scientific basis for our regional flora was long overdue.
After fifty years of expeditions to collect samples, meticulous verification in herbariums, a literature survey and validation of a colossal amount of collected data, the two authors present their findings in two volumes. No less than 1619 species are thus identified and linked to some 1500 distribution maps.
This complete work, of exceptional scientific quality yet still attractive and accessible, a reference assessment of the Ile-de-France flora thanks to an unrivalled regional floristic database, will enthral a wide audience.
