  • Life-Span Extensionby Christian Sell; Antonello Lorenzini; Holly M. Brown-Borg

    Humana Press 2009; US$ 180.45

    In recent years, remarkable discoveries have been made concerning the underlying mechanisms of aging. This multidisciplinary book brings together a range of illuminating perspectives from researchers investigating the aging process in a variety of species. more...

  • Molecular Motorsby Manfred Schliwa

    Wiley 2006; US$ 326.00 US$ 282.53

    The latest knowledge on molecular motors is vital for the understanding of a wide range of biological and medical topics: cell motility, organelle movement, virus transport, developmental asymmetry, myopathies, and sensory defects are all related to the function or malfunction of these minute molecular machines. Since there is a vast amount of information... more...

  • Introduction to Biological Physics for the Health and Life Sciencesby Kirsten Franklin; Paul Muir; Terry Scott; Lara Wilcocks; Paul Yates

    Wiley 2010; US$ 192.00 US$ 166.40

    This book aims to demystify fundamental biophysics for students in the health and biosciences required to study physics and to understand the mechanistic behaviour of biosystems. The text is well supplemented by worked conceptual examples that will constitute the main source for the students, while combining conceptual examples and practice problems... more...

  • Solid Biomechanicsby Roland Ennos

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 78.50 US$ 71.44

    Solid Biomechanics is the first book to comprehensively review the mechanical design of organisms. With a physical approach and a minimum of mathematics, the textbook introduces readers to the world of structural mechanics and sheds light on the dazzling array of mechanical adaptations that link creatures as dissimilar as bacteria, plants, and... more...

  • Mechanisms of Life History Evolutionby Thomas Flatt; Andreas Heyland

    OUP Oxford 2011; US$ 79.99

    This interdisciplinary volume unites evolutionary and molecular biologists from various fields (life history theory, molecular biology, developmental biology, aging, phenotypic plasticity, social behaviour, and endocrinology) who use studies of molecular mechanisms to solve fundamental questions in life history evolution in a variety of organisms. more...

  • MOLECULAR MACHINESby Benoit Roux

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 101.00 US$ 91.91

    Molecular machines are complex biomolecules, proteins, nucleic acids, and carbohydrates that consume energy in order to perform specific functions. The concerted action of all those machines underlies all the activities of the living cell. To understand how such molecular machines are able to perform their function, it is necessary to identify the... more...

  • The Optics of Lifeby Sönke Johnsen

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 52.50 US$ 47.77

    Optics--a field of physics focusing on the study of light--is also central to many areas of biology, including vision, ecology, botany, animal behavior, neurobiology, and molecular biology. The Optics of Life introduces the fundamentals of optics to biologists and nonphysicists, giving them the tools they need to successfully incorporate optical... more...

  • NatureScopeby Alan Rayner

    John Hunt Publishing 2012; US$ 14.99

    For thousands of years we have tried to study, interpret and teach ourselves ABOUT Nature from our own point of view, through the lenses of our telescopes, microscopes and binocular eyesight directed outwards. We see a rigidly framed objective picture ?out there? that does not include our selves yet upon which we project our own image and psychology.... more...

  • Metabolic Ecologyby Richard M. Sibly; James H. Brown; Astrid Kodric-Brown

    Wiley 2012; US$ 98.95 US$ 85.76

    One of the first textbooks in this emerging important field of ecology. Most of ecology is about metabolism: the ways that organisms use energy and materials. The energy requirements of individuals – their metabolic rates – vary predictably with their body size and temperature. Ecological interactions are exchanges of energy and... more...

  • Physics of the Life Sciencesby Jay Newman

    Springer New York 2010; US$ 63.90

    In both experimental techniques and basic understanding of process and function, physics is integral to most areas of modern life science. This text, filled with beautiful photographs and illustrations, explores those connections of fundamental physics to biology, biophysics and medicine. more...
