  • Animal Learningby M. E. Bitterman; V. M. LoLordo; J. Bruce Overmier; Michael E. Rashotte

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    For ten days, a number of neuroscientists met at Reisensburg to attend a series of lectures and discussions, an Institute, on animal learning. The students were drawn from a wide variety of disciplines, including anatomy, biochemistry, pharmacology, physiol­ ogy and zoology. It is probably true to say that many of them had at best a sketchy knowledge... more...

  • The Juvenile Hormonesby L. Gilbert

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    The juvenile hormones of insects are unique molecules in terms of their chemical nature (methyl esters of sesquiterpene epoxides) and action (both as modulators of morphogenesis during the larval life of insects and as a gonadotropic agent in many female adults). Although a symposium dedicated to the chemistry, metabolism and effects of juvenile hormone... more...

  • Water Balance in Land Arthropodsby E. B. Edney

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 149.00

    Writers on arthropod water relationships range from bio­ physicists and biochemists to population ecologists-a fact that gives cause to wonder whether the field is already too heterogeneous to be written about in a single book by a single author. I have partly avoided the problem by concentrating largely on physiological mechanisms and by omitting... more...

  • Physical and Chemical Bases of Biological Information Transferby Julia Vassileva-Popova

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    Mathematical Approach and Models of Regulatory Mechanisms.- A New Mathematical Approach of Hormonal Regulatory Mechanisms during Growth.- The Aliosteric Model of Monod, Wyman and Changeux and the Phenomenon of Rising B/F-Curves in Hormone?Antibody Reactions.- Oxytocin Effect of the Depolarized Rat Uterus: A Mathematical Approach Using System Identification.-... more...

  • Lemur Biologyby Ian Tattersall

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    The volume of studies on prosimian primates has, until recently, tended to lag well behind that of studies on the higher primates. This is so despite the fact that the considerable intrinsic interest of the living prosimians and the signifi­ cance of their stuQ,y for our understanding of the earlier stages of primate evolution have long been acknowledged... more...

  • Molecular Mechanisms for Repair of DNAby Philip Hanawalt

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    An "age" has passed in the 40 years since we first observed recovery from radiation damage in irradiated bacteria. During the early 1930s, we had been discussing the possibility of rapid changes after radiation exposure with Farring­ ton Daniels, Benjamin Duggar, John Curtis, and others at the University of Wisconsin. After working with living cells,... more...

  • Cytochromes P-450 and b5by David Cooper

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    P-450 has in common with our nation that it can call Phila­ delphia its hometown. Yet there are differences, too. The U. S. A. was born and named in this city. P-450 was first recog­ nized here -- an odd CO-combining pigment without family or func­ tion. Japanese workers identified it as an unusual member of the cytochrome family. Finally, in Philadelphia,... more...

  • The Social Life of the Lionby J.A. Rudnai

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    THE HABITAT Nairobi National Park lies to the south-southeast of the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, where the Athi Plains meet the Eastern escarpment of the Rift Valley. These plains form part of the semi-arid highland plateau lying between the coast and the Rift Valley. Both the city itself, and the Park bordering it, are a meeting place of two generally... more...

  • Notes on the herpetofauna of Surinam IVby Marinus Hoogmoed

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 289.00

    Although biological exploration in Surinam started about 300 years ago, a thorough account of the Surinam herpetofauna has not hitherto been publish­ ed. Several publications on the subject have been issued (see below), but none of them was comprehensive. However, there are several papers dealing with a part of the Surinam lizards. The main reason... more...

  • The Primary Structure of Transfer RNAby Tat Yana Venkstern

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    The study of the primary structure of nucleic acids, i. e. , the determination of the nucleotide sequence in ribosomal, transfer, and messenger types of RNA and in DNA, is an essential preliminary to the attempt to correlate the structures of these compounds with their functions. This is one of the most urgent problems in molecular biology, for until... more...
