Integrative Physiology in the Proteomics and Post-Genomics Age
There is a perception in the scientific community that the discipline of Physiology
is in crisis, or at least, in a phase of profound transition and change. At the root of
the problem is confusion between objectives (the biological questions to be solved)
and the methods and technologies to be applied. Traditionally, ever since... Mac OS X: The Missing Manual, Second Edition New York Times computer columnist David Pogue has just updated his bestselling Mac OS X:The Missing Manual! And once again, he applies his scrupulous objectivity to this exciting new operating system, revealing which new features work well and which do not. With new material on almost every page, this second edition offers a wealth of... Population Genetics for Animal Conservation (Conservation Biology) It is widely accepted among conservation biologists that genetics is, more than ever, an essential and efficient tool for wild and captive population management and reserve design. However, a true synergy between population genetics and conservation biology is lacking. Following the first International Workshop on Population Genetics for Animal...
Color Atlas of Human Poisoning and Envenoming
The field of medical toxicology can be simply divided into animal and human poisonings from animal, plant,
or man-made sources. Even more precisely, toxinology is the study of poisoning and envenoming by biological
organisms, and toxicology is the study of human poisoning from manmade sources. Living organisms,
such as animals,... Endocrine Facets of Ageing (Novartis Foundation Symposia)
Social and medical developments have recently led to a dramatic increase in life expectancy. This has inspired the study of organismic changes associated with healthy ageing, in particular the erosion of homeostatic capabilities in multiple endocrine systems.
This book reviews advances in the understanding of endocrine facets of...
Darwin's Lost World: The Hidden History of Animal Life Some 150 years ago, in 1859, Charles Darwin was greatly puzzled by a seeming absence of animal fossils in rocks older than the Cambrian period. He drew attention to a veritable Lost World that was later found to have spanned more than eighty per cent of Earth history. This book tells the story of his lost world, and of the quest to rescue its...
Cardiac Repolarization (Contemporary Cardiology)
There are a number of excellent books on molecular biology, single-channel electrophysiology,
animal experimentation, and clinical electrophysiology. However, the past
decade has seen an explosion of knowledge and radical changes in our understanding of
ventricular repolarization as an integral part of the cardiac electrophysiologic... The Evolution Deceit For some people the theory of evolution or Darwinism has only scientific connotations, with seemingly no direct implication in their daily lives. This is, of course, a common misunderstanding. Far beyond just being an issue within the framework of the biological sciences, the theory of evolution constitutes the underpinning of a deceptive... Cytokines and Chemokines in Infectious Diseases Handbook (Infectious Disease)
Cytokines and chemokines are an important class of effector molecules that play a fundamental
role in orchestrating the innate and acquired immune responses needed to eliminate or
wall off invading pathogens. In vitro and in vivo studies have been instrumental in revealing
the complexity of the cytokine network and the many facets of...
