Overview

This book focuses on a critical period for pupils between the ages of nine and thirteen when the demands made on children's literacy change fundamentally, and when children establish life-time patterns of reading and non-reading. It provides a framework for teachers and managers to help set up a whole-school approach to literacy, based on a series of steps which enable managers to find out how literacy is perceived by teachers and effectively used within classroom contexts. Practical guidance on how schools can help pupils who have literacy difficulties, on methods of assessment and reporting, and on how outside agencies can be involved will be particularly helpful to teachers and heads of department.

Presents new and reinterprets old findings regarding the influence of morphology on ecological relationships, and the evolutionary impact of ecological factors on morphology in different life intervals, populations, species, communities, and evolutionary lineages. Emphasizes recent quantitative studies that include multivariate approaches to ecomorphological analysis, the selection of functionally important variables to analyze, and performance tests to examine specific hypotheses. Covers the feeding, sensory systems, locomotion, respiration, reproduction, and phylogenetic relationships of bony fish. Most of the 18 papers were presented at a June 1992 symposium (no location noted), and all were published as Environmental Biology of Fishes vol. 44, nos. 1-3 (1995). Annotation c.
