  • 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...

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

  • 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$ 119.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • Neurobiology of Invertebratesby J. Salanki

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    In September 1967 a Symposium on Neurobiology of Invertebrates was held at Tihany, in the Biological Research Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sci­ ences, coinciding with the 40 years anniversary of this Institute. Its Department of Experimental Zoology, representing the most important basis for researches in Hungary on the nervous system of invertebrates,... more...

  • The Genetics of the Tettigidae (Grouse Locusts)by Robert K. Nabours

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    The various genera and species of the Orthopteran sub-family Tet­ tigidae may be recognized under several names in the reports of a number of entomologists. They range from the form Bulla of LINNE (1767), whose figures are unmistakable, to the recent descriptions of SCUDDER (1900), HANCOCK (1902), and other orthoptologists. Such words as Tettix, Tettiginae... more...
