  • Teratological Testingby T.V.N. Persaud

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    The study of birth defects has assumed an importance even greater now than in the past because mortality rates attributed to congenital anomalies have declined far less than those for other causes of death, such as infectious and nutritional diseases. It is estimated that as many as 50% of all pregnancies terminate as miscarriages. In the majority... more...

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
