Download Naturgeschichte des Lebens: von seinen Anfängen bis zum by Prof. Dr. Helmut Hölder (auth.), Prof. Dr. Karl V. Frisch PDF

By Prof. Dr. Helmut Hölder (auth.), Prof. Dr. Karl V. Frisch (eds.)

Diese auch fur den Laien verstandliche Einfuhrung in die Naturgeschichte gibt einen Einblick in den derzeitigen Wissensstand und die Problematik der stammesgeschichtlichen Palaontologie. Nach kurzer Einleitung in Wesen und Wissenschaftshistorie, mit besonderem Nachdruck auf den glucklichen Umstand der so reichlich vorhandenen fossilen Uberlieferungen, wird die Evolution der Pflanzen- und, etwas ausfuhrlicher, der Tierwelt anhand der wichtigsten Organismengruppen dargestellt - ohne den Leser durch Formenfulle zu entmutigen. Dabei erfahrt die Beziehung der Lebewesen zu ihrer Umwelt und dem Hin und Her der Anpassungen an Wasser, Land und Luft besondere Betonung. Einbezogen in das Gesamtgeschehen der Evolution wird auch der Mensch, sowohl in seiner physischen Entwicklung als auch in seinem Wesen und Selbstverstandnis bis hin zu seiner heute ins Blickfeld geruckten Umweltverantwortung.

Download Power, Sex, Suicide: Mitochondria and the Meaning of Life by Nick Lane PDF

By Nick Lane

If it weren't for mitochondria, scientists argue, we'd all nonetheless be single-celled micro organism. certainly, those tiny buildings within our cells are very important past imagining. with out mitochondria, we'd haven't any mobile suicide, no sculpting of embryonic form, no sexes, no menopause, no aging.

In this attention-grabbing and thought-provoking booklet, Nick Lane brings jointly the newest study during this interesting box to teach how our turning out to be perception into mitochondria has make clear how advanced existence advanced, why intercourse arose (why don't we simply bud?), and why we age and die. those findings are of basic value, either in knowing lifestyles in the world, but additionally in controlling our personal health problems, and delaying our degeneration and demise. Readers examine that billion years in the past, mitochondria have been most likely micro organism residing self sufficient lives and that their trap inside greater cells was once a turning aspect within the evolution of lifestyles, allowing the advance of complicated organisms. Lane describes how mitochondria have their very own DNA and that its genes mutate a lot swifter than these within the nucleus. This excessive mutation price lies at the back of our getting older and likely congenital ailments. the most recent examine means that mitochondria play a key function in degenerative ailments comparable to melanoma. We additionally notice that mitochondrial DNA is handed down nearly solely through the feminine line. That's why it's been utilized by a few researchers to track human ancestry daughter-to-mother, to "Mitochondrial Eve," giving us important information regarding our evolutionary history.

Written by means of Nick Lane, a emerging celebrity in well known technology, strength, intercourse, Suicide is the 1st e-book for normal readers at the nature and serve as of those tiny, but attention-grabbing constructions.

Download Il Tao della Biologia - Saggio sulla comparsa dell'Uomo by Giuseppe. Sermonti PDF

By Giuseppe. Sermonti

Che l'uomo derivi dalla scimmia non è più una tesi proponibile. Insegna infatti los angeles zoologia che "quando una specie ha imboccato una strada non può più uscirne" (Grasse), quindi né l. a. scimmia né l'uomo hanno mai potuto svicolare da quelli che erano.
Eppure l'icona della scimmia che si erge through through a uomo rimane nei libri di testo. Quel piccolo corteo, sostiene Sermonti, è l'icona della tesi (gnostica) della civiltà emergente dalla bestialità advert opera della ragione e a sconfessione della religione.

Download Fruit Flies (Tephritidae): Phylogeny and Evolution of by Martin Aluja, Allen Norrbom PDF

By Martin Aluja, Allen Norrbom

Fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) are one of the such a lot damaging agricultural pests on this planet, consuming their manner via acres and acres of citrus and different culmination at an alarming price and forcing meals and agriculture organisations to spend hundreds of thousands of bucks on top of things and administration measures. yet earlier, the examine of fruit flies has been frequently biased in the direction of utilized facets (e.g., administration, tracking, and mass rearing)-understandable, given the large fiscal influence of this species.This paintings is the 1st that comprehensively addresses the research of the phylogeny and the evolution of fruit fly habit. a global team of hugely popular scientists evaluate the present kingdom of data and contain massive new findings on a number of points of fruit fly habit, phylogeny and comparable matters. long ago, the subjects of phylogeny and evolution of habit have been slightly addressed, and whilst so, frequently superficially. Fruit Flies (Tephritidae): Phylogeny and Evolution of habit is a definitive therapy, overlaying all behaviors in a wide diversity of tephritids.This quantity is split into 8 sections:

Download Biomembrane Protocols: II. Architecture and Function by John M. Graham, Joan A. Higgins PDF

By John M. Graham, Joan A. Higgins

There were many very important advances in our realizing of organic membrane constitution and serve as during the last decade. a lot of this growth has been pushed through the improvement of recent suggestions for learning membrane parts and their interactions. culture­ best friend, the research of membranes has principally happened in the domain names of biochemistry, actual chemistry, and mobile biology; yet some of the most important advances have resulted from a selection into different disciplines, akin to molecular biology, immunology, and the medical sciences. In those volumes we now have tried to assemble a few of these techniques―to mix the previous and the hot. Biomembrane Protocols: II. structure and serve as is worried completely with the structure and actions of membranes, while the spouse quantity, Biomembrane Protocols: I. Isolation and research, offers with their isolation and compositional research. the purpose of every bankruptcy is to supply distinct technical and meth­ odological details that may permit the reader to accomplish the tech­ nique effectively, with out the necessity to seek advice different texts. targeted experiences of membrane constitution and serve as are usually not incorporated, other than the place they're suitable to the alternative or efficacy of a selected proce­ dure. as well as fabrics and techniques sections, every one bankruptcy has a Notes part that explains the explanations for taking yes steps and seasoned­ vides sensible counsel for employing the concepts to different structures.
