1.1 Introduction

To the lay person, it might seem surprising that there is any problem with the recognition of higher taxa. The very existence of long-established vernacular names for inclusive groupings of species (e.g. finches, thrushes, parrots and hawks as distinct groups of birds) suggests that higher taxa are self-evident. Accordingly, the task of the taxonomist might seem merely to consist of recognising these groupings and assembling them in a hierarchy of increasingly inclusive categories.

3.6.3 Exponential decrease: radioactive decay

The most familiar example of exponential decrease is provided by radioactive decay. Radioactivity is a natural phenomenon that is used routinely in many medical applications, from imaging (radioactive tracers in PET scanning) to therapy (radiotherapy to destroy tumours). During radioactive decay, the number of radioactive atoms halves at a constant rate, called the half-life. For instance, the radioactive isotope 11C, pronounced 'carbon 11', has a half-life of 1224 seconds (a littl

2.1 Introduction

Europa's surface is fascinating, if often perplexing, to study. One of its special characteristics is its brightness. It has an albedo of 0.7, which is exceeded among icy satellites only by Enceladus and Triton. (The 'albedo' of a body is simply the fraction of the incident light that is reflected. The higher the albedo, the more light is reflected, and the brighter the body appears.) Overall brightness is one indicator of the youth of an icy surface: the brighter the icy surface, the younger

3.2 Problems with flat databases

As a database, Table 1 is messy and inefficient, and does not really qualify as a properly constructed database. For instance, what happens if someone signs up to do four evening classes? To allow for this possibility we could incorporate further fields, such as Course4, Course5 and so on. But

1.3 Reading a Renaissance play

If you have never read a Renaissance play before – and even if you have – you may well find Doctor Faustus a challenging read. This is chiefly because, like the plays of Shakespeare, Doctor Faustus was written during the historical period known as the Renaissance (or the early modern period), when the vocabulary was significantly different from twenty-first-century English. It is also written largely in blank verse, a term that requires a few words of explanation. Look for a

1.4.10 Unfinished business

When people die suddenly we can never be sure that they have done and said what they want and are able to do. Meg’s long term-illness gave her a lot of time for reflection and preparation, so that while her death was sudden and she was unable to see her younger son, she also had the opportunity for conversations with people about her death. However, there may have been last-minute wishes that Meg was unable to express.

Li’s sudden stroke may have left her with things unsaid, but her
