  • Morphodynamicsby Adolf Seilacher; Alan D. Gishlick

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 99.95

    Morphodynamics is defined as the unique interaction among environment, functional morphology, developmental constraints, phylogeny, and time?all of which shape the evolution of life. These fabricational patterns and similarities owe their regularity not to a detailed genetic program, but to extrinsic factors, which may be mechanical, chemical, or... more...

  • Gastrointestinal Mucosal Defense Systemby Peter R. Kvietys; Ahmed Yaqinuddin; Wael Al Kattan

    Biota Publishing 2014; US$ 75.00

    The gastrointestinal mucosal defense system serves to minimize mucosal injury by either ingested or endogenously produced noxious substances. The mucosal defense system is stratified into pre-epithelial (alkaline mucus), epithelial (dynamic epithelial lining), and post-epithelial (microcirculation) components. The mucus lining the epithelial surface... more...

  • Microspores Evolution and Ontogenyby S. Blackmore; R. B. Knox

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    An understanding of the processes of plant reproduction is increasingly important in the exploitation of plant resources. Microspore formation is a major event in the life cycles of land plants, allowing the transition from diploid sporophyte generation to the haploid gametophyte generation, and varies greatly between taxa in the diversity of processes... more...

  • Cellular Basis of Morphogenesisby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Contributors to this symposium focus on the interface between genes and cells, covering genetic analysis, cloning studies, and the investigation of cell lineages and cellular interactions. They note how the body axes are already determined in the eggs of invertebrates and amphibia, then consider the mechanisms as the egg cleaves, in annelids, arthropods,... more...

  • The Driving Forces of Evolutionby David Wool

    Science Publishers 2006; US$ 73.95

    To cope with the abiotic stress-induced osmotic problems, plants adapt by either increasing uptake of inorganic ions from the external solution, or by de novo synthesis of organic compatible solutes acting as osmolytes. Of the osmoregulants and protectants discussed in this volume, trehalose, fructans, ectoine and citrulline, which are generated in... more...
