Advances

Any idea what's the usual range for advances on non-fiction books? How much is feasible to accept depends on how much research is required to work on the book, how much time away from any other job the author will be taking, and how much money the author requires for the book research, since research expenses need to come out of advances. The subject came up in discussion today, but no one had any particular figures to suggest.
