As supposedly another severe winter approaches us I thought some members might be intrigued to spend some time accessing these archives. From what I've read about them already, there are some fascinating revelations on a host of subject material to be viewed. Check out the drop down menu at this link TC.

TC - looks very good. I tried Newton's 'Principia' in the search.Verily, a bountiful font of knowledge!

Archives can suck you in.

I remember being in an aviation archive once doing some contemporary research when I found the original evaluation of the first captured Focke Wulf 190.

I didn't get much research done that particular afternoon I can tell you!

Fascinating.

Did a search on Darwin and came back with some useful titles such as

"Red deer stags use formants as assessment cues during intrasexual agonistic interactions"

and

"The Physiology of Insect Fibrillar Muscle. I. Anatomy and Innervation of the Basalar Muscle of Lamellicorn Beetles"

So, imho it's a bit highbrow and one has to know what one is looking for in the first place.

Doesn't everyone use formants as assessment cues during intrasexual agonistic interactions?

I must have been getting it terribly wrong all these years.

You're lucky FE, my wife has never let me do that.
