Biological Identification
Biological identification systems are a vital component in countering the threats to life and health posed by natural pathogens, toxins, and bioterrorism agents. It is essential that such systems are fast, accurate, reliable and easy to use. It is also important to employ the most suitable technology in dealing with any particular threat. This book provides a detailed review of the technologies available and the potential for future developments.<br /><br />Part one covers the essentials of DNA and RNA sequencing for the identification of pathogens, including next generation sequencing (NGS), polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods, isothermal amplification and bead array...

Biological Individuality
Individuals are things that everybody knows—or thinks they do. Yet even scholars who practice or analyze the biological sciences often cannot agree on what an individual is and why. One reason for this disagreement is that the many important biological individuality concepts serve very different purposes—defining, classifying, or explaining living structure, function, interaction, persistence, or evolution. Indeed, as the contributors to <i>Biological Individuality</i> reveal, nature is too messy for simple definitions of this concept, organisms too quirky in the diverse ways they reproduce, function, and interact, and human ideas about individuality too fraught with phil...

Biological Principles - A Critical Study
Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Biological Psychiatry
It is now widely recognised that biological psychiatry is rapidly coming into its own. For over the last three decades dramatic advances in this young discipline have been made, all of which attest to the staying power of the experimental method. Those who made this revolution in knowledge happen are a breed of investigators availing themselves of the tools of molecular biology, pharmacology, genetics, and perhaps, above all, the technology of neuroimaging. The introduction of the interdisciplinary method of approach to the study of psychopathology had made it very clear that neuroimaging, as a set of techniques, is unique in that it is gradually providing us with evidenc...

Biologie de la mort
Pourquoi la plupart des créatures vivantes sont-elles condamnées à mourir "naturellement" même lorsqu'elles disposent d'un environnement favorable et protégé ? La mort est-elle un processus biologique "utile" ou bien ne correspond-elle à aucune nécessité naturelle ? La biologie n'aborde ces questions que depuis peu. Elle fournit cependant aujourd'hui une grille d'interprétation cohérente et rigoureuse rendant compte de la mort, de son existence comme des mécanismes au cœur même du vivant. André Klarsfeld et Frédéric Revah font le point sur toutes ces recherches qui bouleversent nombre d'idées reçues sur un sujet qui hante l'humanité depuis les origines. André Klarsfeld es...

Biologie des passions
Qu’est-ce qu’aimer&#xa0;? Peut-on expliquer l’amour de Roméo pour Juliette&#xa0;? Qu’est-ce que le désir, le plaisir et la douleur, le goût du pouvoir et de la domination&#xa0;? Bref, comment rendre raison de nos passions&#xa0;?<br><br> Dépassant le clivage traditionnel entre l’âme et le corps, entre le cerveau qui serait l’organe de la raison et le corps celui des pulsions, Jean-Didier Vincent propose une nouvelle «&#xa0;théorie des émotions&#xa0;», qui harmonise notre conception de l’homme.<br><br> Non pas, bien sûr, qu’il soit possible de mettre l’amour en équation&#xa0;! L’auteur a trop conscience de la subtilité et de la complexité de nos états d’âme pour prétendre l...

Biology
Edmund Beecher Wilson (1856 – 1939) was a pioneering American zoologist and geneticist. He wrote one of the most famous textbooks in the history of modern biology named “The Cell”.<br /> It is the general aim of the biological sciences to learn something of the order of nature in the living world. Perhaps it is not amiss to remark that the biologist may not hope to solve the ultimate problems of life any more than the chemist and physicist may hope to penetrate the final mysteries of existence in the non-living world.&#xa0;

Biology and Culture of Channel Catfish
The history of channel catfish farming in the United States serves as a model for the development of pond-based aquaculture industries worldwide. Channel catfish farming is the largest and economically most important aquaculture industry in the United States. In 2003, over 300,000 metric tons (662 million pounds) of channel catfish were processed, representing about half the total United States aquaculture production. Demand for farm-raised catfish is strong, with record processing years in 2002 and 2003. In 22 chapters written by active scientists in the field, Biology and Culture of Channel Catfish comprehensively synthesizes over 30 years of research on this American i...

Biology and Feminism
This book provides a unique introduction to the study of relationships between gender and biology, a core part of the feminist science research tradition which emerged nearly half a century ago. Lynn Hankinson Nelson presents an accessible and balanced discussion of research questions, background assumptions, methods, and hypotheses about biology and gender with which feminist scientists and science scholars critically and constructively engage. Writing from the perspective of contemporary philosophy of science, she examines the evidence for and ethical implications of biological hypotheses about gender, and discusses relevant philosophical issues including understandings...

Biology and Ideology from Descartes to Dawkins
Over the course of human history, the sciences, and biology in particular, have often been manipulated to cause immense human suffering. For example, biology has been used to justify eugenic programs, forced sterilization, human experimentation, and death camps—all in an attempt to support notions of racial superiority. By investigating the past, the contributors to <i>Biology and Ideology from Descartes to Dawkins</i> hope to better prepare us to discern ideological abuse of science when it occurs in the future.&#xa0;&#xa0;<br /><br />Denis R. Alexander and Ronald L. Numbers bring together fourteen experts to examine the varied ways science has been used and abused for n...

Biology and Mechanics of Blood Flows
Biology and Mechanics of Blood Flows presents the basic knowledge and state-of-the-art techniques necessary to carry out investigations of the cardiovascular system using modeling and simulation. Part I of this two-volume sequence, Biology, addresses the nanoscopic and microscopic scales. The nanoscale corresponds to the scale of biochemical reaction cascades involved in cell adaptation to mechanical stresses among other stimuli. The microscale is the scale of stress-induced tissue remodeling associated with acute or chronic loadings. The cardiovascular system, like any physiological system, has a complicated three-dimensional structure and composition. Its time dependent...

Biology of the Nitrogen Cycle
All organisms require nitrogen to live and grow. The movement of nitrogen between the atmosphere, biosphere, and geosphere in different forms is described by the nitrogen cycle. This book is an activity of the COST 856 Action on Denitrification. It covers all aspects of the N-cycle: chemistry, biology (enzymology, molecular biology), physics, applied aspects (greenhouse effect, N-pollution problems, practices in farming, in waste-water treatment, and more). In this book, leading editors offer the latest research available on dentrification (reduction of nitrates or nitrites commonly by bacteria- as in soil).* Provides details on denitrification and its general role in the...

Biology's First Law
Life on earth is characterized by three striking phenomena that demand explanation: adaptation—the marvelous fit between organism and environment; diversity—the great variety of organisms; and complexity—the enormous intricacy of their internal structure. Natural selection explains adaptation. But what explains diversity and complexity? Daniel W. McShea and Robert N. Brandon argue that there exists in evolution a spontaneous tendency toward increased diversity and complexity, one that acts whether natural selection is present or not. They call this tendency a biological law—the Zero-Force Evolutionary Law, or ZFEL. This law unifies the principles and data of biology under...
