  • Allelopathy

    The study of deleterious or beneficial biochemical interactions between plants (allelopathy) and the chemicals responsible for these interactions (allelochemicals) has wide implications in many areas of biological science. The Editors have drawn together an eminent international group of contributors who provide thorough coverage of all ...

  • Survival

    This fascinating and accessible book examines the survival of the human race from a broad range of viewpoints. Through in-depth examinations of a number of very distinct aspects of human life, the book covers topics ranging from the preservation of Empires, to the challenges of maintaining cultural identity, the sufferings inflicted by famine, ...

  • An Introduction to the Earth-Life System

    This concise undergraduate textbook brings together Earth and biological sciences to explore the co-evolution of the Earth and life over geological time. Written for a one-semester course, it explores the Earth system at and above the surface of the Earth by examining the interactions and feedback processes between the geosphere, atmosphere, ...

  • Sensory Testing Methods: 2nd Edition

    ASTM Manual 26 is the first revision to the classic STP 434/Manual on Sensory Testing Methods (published 1968). The science of sensory evaluation consists of a broad spectrum of methods and techniques that encompass psychology; statistics; product sciences, such as food science or cosmetic chemistry; other biological sciences; physics and ...

  • Ecology and Evolution of the Acari

    Acarology is on the move! For a long time the development of Acarology as a field of biological science has been dominated by systematists and applied scientists. In the last 15 years, however, Acari have been increasingly recognized as highly suitable for the testing of theories in ecological and evolutionary sciences. The growing interest ...

  • Probabilistic Modeling in Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics

    Probabilistic Modelling in Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics has been written for researchers and students in statistics, machine learning, and the biological sciences. The first part of this book provides a self-contained introduction to the methodology of Bayesian networks. The following parts demonstrate how these methods are applied in ...

  • Current Ornithology, Volume 11

    The current volume includes articles on sibling competition, hatching asynchrony, incubation period, and lifespan in altricial birds, predation and the limitation of bird numbers, and population trends in birds of eastern North America. Current Ornithology is the only English-language publication currently devoted exclusively to extensive ...

  • Ornithology, Evolution, and Philosophy

    This book is the first detailed biography of Ernst Mayr. He was an ‘architect’ of the Synthetic Theory of Evolution, and the greatest evolutionary biologist since Charles Darwin, influential historian and philosopher of biology, outstanding taxonomist and ornithologist, and naturalist. He is one of the most widely known biologists of the 20th ...

  • Molecular Approaches to the Study of the Ocean

    Marine biological science is now studied at the molecular level and although research scientists depend on information gained using molecular techniques, there is no book explaining the philosophy of this approach. Molecular Approaches to the Study of the Ocean introduces the reasons why molecular technology is such a powerful tool in the ...

  • Current Ornithology, Volume 9

    Contributors to this volume offer new research on extinction processes in birds, nest predation, and song systems, and describes a graphical model that helps predict the reproductive consequences of time allocation between the competing demands of guarding young birds and foraging for food. Current Ornithology is the only English-language ...

  • Climate Change - Biological and Human Aspects

    In recent years climate change has become recognized as the foremost environmental problem of the twenty-first century. Not only will climate change potentially affect the multibillion dollar energy strategies of countries worldwide, but it also could seriously affect many species, including our own. A fascinating introduction to the subject, this ...

  • Hot House

    Global warming is extremely complex because it deals with so many different characteristics of the Earth and their complex interactions. It is addressed by almost all sciences including many aspects of geosciences, atmospheric, the biological sciences, and even astronomy. It has recently become the concern of other diverse disciplines such as ...

  • Computational Genome Analysis

    Computational Genome Analysis: An Introduction presents the foundations of key problems in computational molecular biology and bioinformatics. It focuses on computational and statistical principles applied to genomes, and introduces the mathematics and statistics that are crucial for understanding these applications. The book is appropriate for a ...

  • Bioinformatics for Systems Biology

    The biological sciences are now in the midst of a true life sciences revolution akin to what physics experienced just after the turn of the last century. We are now in a phase of unparalleled growth that is reflected by the amount of data generated from each experiment. At the time of this writing, the rate of data acquisition was approaching 2 ...

  • Linking Restoration and Ecological Succession

    While studies of restoration and ecological succession have been published independently, there is much overlap between these approaches that has not been adequately explored. Linking Restoration and Ecological Succession integrates practical information from restoration projects around the world with the latest developments in successional ...

  • Chemical Signals in Vertebrates 11

    This volume presents the proceedings of 'Chemical Signals in Vertebrates 11', hosted by the University of Liverpool and held July 25 - 28, 2006 at the University of Chester in the United Kingdom.
