    Electricity offers a complete introduction to the nature of electricity for those who want to know more about electricity but do not find the time to struggle through complicated handbooks. It explains what electricity and magnetism are, how batteries work, the difference between DC- and AC-fields, what conductors, inductance and capacitance are, ...

  • Corrosion in Natural Waters

    Presents 7 papers on the degradation of metallic materials in natural or nearly natural waters: • Seawater Corrosivity Around the World: Results from Three Years of Testing • Crevice Corrosion Resistance of Stainless Steels in Waters Containing Chloride and Sulfate Ions • Corrosion Fatigue Testing of Steels as Applicable to Offshore ...

  • Recombination and Meiosis

    Once per life cycle, mitotic nuclear divisions are replaced by meiosis I and II – reducing chromosome number from the diploid level to a haploid genome and recombining chromosome arms by crossing-over. In animals, all this happens during formation of eggs and sperm – in yeasts before spore formation. The mechanisms of reciprocal exchange at ...

  • The Future of Life and the Future of our Civilization

    This unique book is the proceedings of 'The Future of Life and the Future of our Civilization' symposium, which was held in May of 2005 in Germany. It is unique since it contains articles of the Future in all aspects of our life. Besides, until now such publications are absent. In this book we can find articles about the spread of life trough out ...

  • Molecular Genetics of Recombination

    Genetic recombination is an important process involved in shaping the genetic make up of progeny. Increasingly, it has become evident that recombination is a DNA repair pathway crucial during DNA replication in vegetatively growing cells. It plays a critical role in preserving the integrity of the genome by mediating the repair of DNA damage, ...

  • Environmental Metal Pollutants, Reactive Oxygen Intermediaries and Genotoxicity

    Humans are exposed daily to low concentrations of metals that are released into the environment by both natural and industrial processes. Environmental Metal Pollutants, Reactive Oxygen Intermediaries and Genotoxicity: Molecular Approaches to Determine Mechanisms of Toxicity examines concerns about the acute and/or chronic exposure of humans ...

  • Gene Avatars

    'Why life?' Questions of this type were for a long time the prerogative of philosophers who left the 'how' question to scientists. Nowadays, Darwin's successors no longer have any qualms about addressing the 'why' as well as the 'how'. Over a century ago, Darwin modestly admitted having 'thrown some light on the origin of species - this mystery of ...
