And because of the bright plumage, and, primarily, because of the peculiar beak-hook. To request the parrots' show language of 'no, of course, will not. But he is also their signs: thick, short, at the end of the recess for holding seeds or some kind of brush for those who feed on nectar, like Laurie. Largest and most powerful beak parrot cockatoo though they somehow increase no more than a crow. They have a conspicuous appearance by dashing tuft on his head. A bill, this should be remembered, so that easily bite his finger. The very name 'cockatoo' is derived from the Malay word 'Kakatua' which means 'cutter'.

All parrots even impossible to list, so the story about them, if you noticed, is the principle of 'most'. The most unusual parrot – a parrot Nestor kea, or, living in New Zealand. When immigrants were brought to the island of sheep, kea threw normal life – vegetarianism and switched to meat. Sheep farmers is often seen them on the dead sheep and was credited with parrots passion for killing sheep. And although wine parrots proved was not, they killed tens of thousands. Now they have practically no, and, as often happens now, and it turned out that these parrots are in no way guilty, they are scavengers. Some researchers believe that the kea is still not in alone, and the pack, able to peck the sheep, but only if it is itself 'is breathing its last. " So kea everything else operates and functions of 'techs' and do not deserve destruction and protection.

Especially because they have other habits unusual. Kea live in the snowy mountains and peaceful stroll among the glaciers, not paying attention to the cold or the snow storm. And the children they take is not so, as other parrots. I practiced kea 'polygamy', where it is sense that people in the East: the father takes care of several families of all families. And yet who's 'best-best' in the family of parrots? Fans of these birds probably say that it is – short-tailed gray parrot, or Jaco. Because he the most talkative of the parrot. Jaco can learn more than one hundred words and phrases. The main thing that always amazes 'speeches' parrots – is to interpret and another fact that is so funny for us, and binds to these birds. By myself Parrots have always regarded with anxious affection and reward yourself, 'road', a compliment like: "Good birdie. Ass – a good girl. " And to the owners usually – it is safe and critically. Budgie Kuzya recently invented a new morality to their owners. He was very angry says: 'In the place should be put. " And almost always this observation is valid!

Bibliometrics

The Bibliometrics is a part of the Scientometrics that applies mathematical and statistical methods to all scientific literature and authors who produce it, with the aim of studying and analysing the scientific activity. Doing so helps laws Bibliometric, based on the statistical behavior regulate who over time have shown the different elements that are part of science. The instruments used to measure aspects of this social phenomenon are the Bibliometric, measures indicators that provide information about the results of scientific activity in any of its manifestations. Bibliometric law of exponential growth Derek j. de Solla Price laws noted that the growth of scientific information occurs at a pace much higher with respect to other social phenomena, but very similar to other observable phenomena in natural contexts, such as biological processes. Such growth is such that every 10-15 years the existing information is replicated with a growth exponential, although this largely depends on the area of knowledge of which concerned.

In turn, proposed several stages: a phase of exponential growth itself, in which the growth rate is proportional to the size of the sample, and a linear growth phase, in which the growth rate is constant or independent of the size of the system. The stages are as follows: phase 1: phase 2 precursors: exponential growth phase 3: linear growth phase 4: collapse of the scientific field, however, not only the scientific literature grows exponentially, but also the number of researchers, so the first conclusion that got Price of exponential growth was the contemporary nature of science, an expression that reflects the phenomenon which consists in that the number of scientists currently constitute almost the total of all the that have existed in the past more current, being the number of the past cienfificos a proportion almost irrelevant compared this current issue. However, an exponential growth You can not stay to infinity, i.e., there must be a limit called ceiling or saturation limit; admitted this limit, Price postulated that the growth of science-shaped logistic curve.
