Extractions: took out of Africa 80,000 years ago You and your neighbor are closer than you think. Despite our physical, psychological, geographical and cultural differences, every living person has at least one thing in common: we are all related to one woman who lived in east Africa more than 150,000 years ago. Narrated by actor Danny Glover, THE REAL EVE reveals that our shared genetic heritage links every living person on earth. The program also traces the expansion of modern humans throughout the world, from our fragile beginnings in Africa to our exodus through South Asia, down to Australia, up into Europe, and finally into the Americas. Filmed in nine countries on five continents, THE REAL EVE vividly recreates the ancient world in which this dramatic story took place. Unfolding like a scientific detective story, THE REAL EVE enlists top scientists and cutting-edge research to explain that everyone on the planet today can trace a specific part of his or her genetic heritage back to one woman through a unique part of our genetic makeup, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Unlike the DNA that dictates height or eye color, mtDNA provides the chemical energy in nearly all human cells; we can't survive without it. The mtDNA of "mitrochondrial Eve" has been passed down through the centuries from mother to daughter (men are carriers but don't pass it on) and exists within all people living today. Although she was not the only woman living at the time, nor necessarily the most fertile, "mitrochondrial Eve"

One way to browse the collection is to search ALICE, the Library's Catalog, in the "Limiting-to-Video-Mode" by "Africa" as a subject for example, then browse your results. In searching for a particular title, a new acquistion, or rather specific topic the above video mode provides good results. However, for 'one-stop' overview of all African related video the following title list is useful. Note: It is quite likely that a given title can only be used on campus.

Extractions: Feeding apparatus of 11 species of algal feeding cichlid fishes were examined. A set of 14 characters was taken and treated on their state distance for clustering. Asprotilapia type, Petrochromis type, and Simochromis type with three subtypes are recognized. These feeding apparatuses are related to the feeding methods of fishes when they graze on algae from rocks. This grouping is different from Greenwood's (1978) systematic classification based on pharyngeal apophysis on African cichlids. pp. 25-38 Michio HORI

Extractions: Contemporary Perspectives on East African Pastoralism The Pastoral Continuum: The Marginalization of Tradition in East Africa . Paul Spencer. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 2000. Pp. 302. The recent severe drought in northern Kenya dramatically illustrates the need to broaden our understanding about African pastoralism. According to the United Nations World Food Program, nearly thirty-five percent of children under five are suffering from malnutrition in the region. The food aid agency describes Wajir District as virtually without cattle, and other sources have put the loss of cattle in the north as high as seventy percent. As donor agencies consider what they can do to alleviate the hunger and suffering of the millions affected by the catastrophe, they would do well to consult the two volumes discussed here. Spencer's impressive monograph is the product of more than forty years work by one of the doyens of British anthropology and The Poor are Not Us represents the discerning contributions of leading scholars in Europe and the United States ably integrated by its two editors. Both books speak to the related issues of poverty and development.
