People, Parasites, and Plowshares: Learning From Our Body's Most Terrifying Invaders

Dickson D. Despommier's brilliant, visceral account of the biology, habit, and historical past of parasites follows the interaction among those attention-grabbing existence varieties and human society over millions of years. Despommier specializes in long term host-parasite institutions, that have developed to prevent or perhaps subvert the human immune approach.

The Biology of Seeds: Recent Research Advances

This ebook provides edited and revised papers from the 7th foreign Workshop on Seeds, held in Salamanca, Spain, in might 2002. the foremost subject matters addressed contain seed improvement, germination and dormancy, in addition to desiccation, seed ecology and seed biotechnology.

Plant Functional Genomics (Methods in Molecular Biology Vol 236)

Erich Grotewold has assembled a crew of major plant scientists to explain intimately the main generic equipment for investigating plant gene functionality in a wide selection of vegetation, in the course of plant pathogen interactions, or even in algae. those quite simply reproducible protocols contain computational, molecular, and genetic methodologies designed for either normal and particular difficulties.

Size and Scaling in Primate Biology

In very basic phrases, "scaling" may be outlined because the structural and func­ tional results of ameliorations in dimension (or scale) between organisms of roughly comparable layout. curiosity in yes facets of physique measurement and scaling in primate biology (e. g. , relative mind measurement) dates to the flip of the century, and medical debate and discussion on a variety of features of this common topic have persisted to be a first-rate drawback of primatologists, actual an­ thropologists, and different vertebrate biologists as much as the current.

Sample text

For some species, however, the resultant numbers of filaments make elucidating the structure more difficult than working from sections. (ii) For surface of peripheral utricles. The diameters of the peripheral (primary) utricles and surface detail are obtained from a 44 L. HILLIS-COLINVAUX thin slice of a bit of surface from about the centre of a segment. Place it in a drop of water on a slide making certain the outer surface is outermost, decalcify with 20% hydrochloric acid, drain excess acid with a tissue and refloat in water.

The practice was continued into the nineteenth century with the work of naturalists such as Lamarck (1813) and Lamouroux (1812,1816), but the term “zoophyte” was replaced with the preferred “polypier”. More significantly, Lamouroux subdivided the coralline group into a number of genera. One of these was Halimedea (1812) or Halimeda (1816), to which he transferred the five species delimited by Ellis. The generic name we now use had been born. Another name, Sertolaria, with Imperato’s Sertolara. , 1956).

Of especial interest to Ellis were the “Corallines”, a group of calcareous and horny sea organisms which he successfully established as an animal group in his classic “Essay Towards a Natural History of the Corallines” of 1755, although Peyssonnel had somewhat earlier recognized an animal nature in at least some of them (Savage, 1948). This coralline group was diverse, and although the principal represent at’,ives were various cnidarians, the complex also included calcareous sen organisms such as the green alga Halimeda and the red alga Corallitm.
