Baas Becking's Geobiology
Laurens Baas Becking was a pioneer in the field of microbial ecology and the father of Geobiology. This is the first English translation of Baas Becking’s <i>Geobiologie</i>: <i>of Inleiding tot de Millieukunde</i> published in Dutch in 1934.&#xa0; This book provides a fascinating view of how organisms have both adapted to and shaped their environment, from all types of settings ranging from lakes to the oceans, to acidic peats and salt ponds, drawing heavily on Baas Becking’s own keen observations. Although written 80 years ago, Baas Becking’s insights feel surprisingly modern and provide a unique insight into the fields of evolution of microbial ecology and geobiology. ...

Babies - Darwin's Survivors As the Fittest
Darwin overlooked the fact that we had to originate as babies in his On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859). Surely we all know that babies are in no condition to survive on their own. Babies are not fitted to survive in any Struggle for Existence. That means that we Homo sapiens had to have originated as the first human babies of our hominid parents. I propose that we originated on the basis of my new theory of evolution in Lectures VI and VII above. Those hominids loved us and cared for us, and that is how human babies survived. But there has never been a theory of our origins! Or at least there had been none until my The Origins of Homo Sapiens (...

Baboon Metaphysics
In 1838 Charles Darwin jotted in a notebook, “He who understands baboon would do more towards metaphysics than Locke.” <i>Baboon Metaphysics</i> is Dorothy&#xa0;L.&#xa0;Cheney and Robert M.&#xa0;Seyfarth’s fascinating response to Darwin’s challenge.<br /><br />&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;<br /><br />Cheney and Seyfarth set up camp in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, where they could intimately observe baboons and their social world. Baboons live in groups of up to 150, including a handful of males and eight or nine matrilineal families of females. Such numbers force baboons to form a complicated mix of short-term bonds for mating and longer...

Bachelor nach Plan. Dein Weg ins Studium: Studienwahl, Bewerbung, Einstieg, Finanzierung, Wohnungssuche, Auslandsstudium
Liebe Leserin, lieber Leser, Du möchtest studieren, bist Dir aber nicht sicher, wo und was genau? Vielleicht hast Du schon grobe Vorstellungen, weißt aber nicht, wie Du Dich bei den vielen Möglichkeiten entscheiden sollst? So geht es den meisten. Auch ich, der Autor dieses Buches, habe damals lange mit meiner Entscheidung gehadert. Ich hatte mir damals mehrere Studienführer gekauft – doch keiner half mir wirklich. Sie waren an vielen Stellen zu langatmig (und langweilig) und an anderen fehlten wichtige Details. Dies hat sich bis heute nur wenig geändert. Aus diesem Grund habe ich dieses Buch geschrieben – um einen Studienführer zu schaffen, der Abiturienten genau die Info...

Bacillus thuringiensis Biotechnology
Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has been used as a biopesticide in agriculture, forestry and mosquito control because of its advantages of specific toxicity against target insects, lack of polluting residues and safety to non-target organisms. The insecticidal properties of this bacterium are due to insecticidal proteins produced during sporulation. Despite these ecological benefits, the use of Bt biopesticides has lagged behind the synthetic chemicals. Genetic improvement of Bt natural strains, in particular Bt recombination, offers a promising means of improving efficacy and cost-effectiveness of Bt-based bioinsecticide products to develop new biotechnological applications....

Back from the Brink: How Australia's Landscape Can Be Saved
Featured on Australian Story, Peter Andrews is a racehorse breeder and farmer credited with remarkable success in converting degraded, salt-ravaged properties into fertile, drought-resistant pastures. His methods are so at odds with conventional scientific wisdom that for 30 years he has been dismissed and ridiculed as a madman. He has faced bankruptcy and family break-up. But now, on the brink of ecological disaster, leading politicians, international scientists and businessmen are beating a path to his door as they grapple with how best to alleviate the affects of drought on the Australian landscape. Described as a man who reads and understands the Australian landscape ...

Bacterial Lipopolysaccharides
The bacterial lipopolysaccharide also known as endotoxin is exhaustively covered in the present work. Central emphasis is placed upon the fine chemical structure of the lipopolysaccharide and its significance for understanding their activity and function. In particular, the role it plays in the interaction of bacteria with other biological systems is examined. New aspects of their physicochemical biology are introduced and updates to the current knowledge concerning the lipopolysaccharide are provided. This important class of biomolecules has recently attracted the attention of many investigators, in particular for understanding its involvement in innate immunity, toll-li...

Bacteria-Metal Interactions
This book provides a detailed description and analysis of the reduction and metabolism of metals and metalloids by sulfate reducing bacteria. The molecular mechanisms of bacterial resistance to copper are examined as well as extracellular electron transfer and bacterial metal oxide respiration. Furthermore, in this book enrichment, isolation, and physiology of magnetotactic bacteria are discussed. <br /><br />The interactions of bacteria with metals in natural environments and their role in metal cycling have been studied for decades. Advances in studies of bacteria-metal interactions identified numerous important aspects of these interactions, such as bioremediation of m...

Bacterias, bichos y otros amigos
La asombrosa historia de cómo convertimos a las bacterias y otros organismos en una fiel y entusiasta clase trabajadora al servicio del ser humano. La historia de la humanidad, la del hombre saltando a la cima de la cadena alimentaria y moldeando el medio natural a su antojo, es la historia de la domesticación de animales y plantas. La que aquí se narra, la que marca el presente y el futuro de nuestra especie, es parecida, sólo que en lugar de campos de trigo y animales de granja, tiene a unos protagonistas menudos y con muy mala reputación, las bacterias. Estamos ante una nueva revolución industrial impulsada por estos microorganismos que el hombre ha logrado domesticar ...

Bad Ideas?
We are born with the instinct to create and invent. Indeed, our ability to do so is what separates us from the rest of the animal world. But have our creative ideas always produced desirable results? Have they always served us well?<br /><br />Bad Ideas? traces the fascinating history of our attempts at self-improvement but also questions their value. The dubious consequences of the development of weaponry, for example, is self-evident. But what of apparently more innocuous advances such as farming, writing and medicine? Science has produced huge good but has also had unforeseen consequences. Can science and scientists find solutions to the perils that now menace us?<br /...

Bad Times and On the Tendency of Varieties to Depart Indefinitely from the Original Type
The present Depression of Trade is remarkable, not so much for its intensity or for its extent—in both of which respects it has been equalled or surpassed on previous occasions, but for its persistence during the long period of eleven years. The late Professor Fawcett, in his Free Trade and Protection (p. 151), says: “The industrial depression is generally thought to have commenced in the closing months of 1874;” and during every succeeding year it has continued to be felt with more or less severity, and its remarkable persistence has been commented on by politicians and public writers. Usually a period of depression is quickly followed by one of comparative prosperity. S...

Balancing between Trade and Risk
The trade aspects of risk and the risk aspects of trade deserve more systematic and genuine interdisciplinary attention if we are to really understand the global, international and supranational dimensions of risk regulation. This book brings together legal and social science research on risk regulation from across the world to explore risk regulation in a trade context. The interdisciplinary collaboration provided in this book is needed to address the trade <i>versus</i> risk balancing act both in empirical and theoretical terms.<br /><br />&#xa0;Although it is obvious that legal, social, cultural and political matters interfere with risk regulation, analyses in which th...
