Biocommunication and Natural Genome Editing
Biocommunication and Natural Genome Editing

This is the first uniform description of all key levels of communication in the organismic kingdoms of plants, fungi, animals and bacteria based on the most recent empirical data. Biocommunication occurs on three levels (A) intraorganismic, i.e. intra- and intercellular, (B) interorganismic, between the same or related species and (C)...

Image Processing Using Pulse-Coupled Neural Networks
Image Processing Using Pulse-Coupled Neural Networks
Humans have an outstanding ability to recognise, classify and discriminate
objects with extreme ease. For example, if a person was in a large classroom
and was asked to find the light switch it would not take more than a second or
two. Even if the light switch was located in a different place than the human
expected or it was

Sex Hormones and Immunity to Infection
Sex Hormones and Immunity to Infection

Why sex matters

Among human and nonhuman animals, the prevalence and intensity of infection typically is higher in males than females and may reflect differences in exposure as well as susceptibility to pathogens. Elevated immunity among females is a double-edged sword in which it is beneficial against infectious diseases but is...

Even health authorities have at times been confused. Although today in the USA, as in most other countries, selenium appears among the trace...
Water Dynamics in Plant Production
Water Dynamics in Plant Production
The source of life is water. Life began in the oceans, which represent the largest stock of water on Earth. Much less water is stored below the land surface in the form of fresh groundwater, amounting to not quite 0.8% of the earth’s total water reserves, while lakes and rivers combined only contribute a further...
The Plausibility of Life: Resolving Darwin's Dilemma
The Plausibility of Life: Resolving Darwin's Dilemma
In the 150 years since Darwin, the field of evolutionary biology has left a glaring gap in understanding how animals developed their astounding variety and complexity. The standard answer has been that small genetic mutations accumulate over time to produce wondrous innovations such as eyes and wings. Drawing on cutting-edge research across...
Encyclopedia of Stem Cell Research (2 Vol.Set)
Encyclopedia of Stem Cell Research (2 Vol.Set)
What is a stem cell? We have a basic working definition, but the way we observe a stem cell function in a dish may not represent how it functions in a living organism. Only this is clear: Stem cells are the engine room of multicelluar organisms-both plants and animals. However, controversies, breakthroughs, and frustration continue to swirl in...
