Morphodynamics

Morphodynamics

Adolf Seilacher, Alan D. Gishlick

November 05, 2014

Morphodynamics is defined as the unique interaction among environment, functional morphology, developmental constraints, phylogeny, and time—all of which shape the evolution of life. These fabricational patterns and similarities owe their regularity not to a detailed genetic program, but to...

Connective Tissue: Histophysiology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology

Connective Tissue: Histophysiology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology

Nikolay Petrovich Omelyanenko, Leonid Ilyich Slutsky, Sergey Pavlovich Mironov

December 27, 2013

Connective tissue is a multicomponent, polyfunctional complex of cells and extracellular matrix that serves as a framework for all organs, combining to form a unified organism. It is a structure responsible for numerous vital functions such as tissue–organ integration, morphogenesis, homeostasis...

Endocrine Sex Differentiation in Fish

Endocrine Sex Differentiation in Fish

T. J. Pandian

May 07, 2013

Of all vertebrates, fish exhibit unparalleled diversity of sexual plasticity and flexibility, ranging from gonochorism to unisexualism, and exceptional patterns of functional hermaphroditism. Fish farming and monosex aquaculture have led to reproductive dysfunction with males producing less milt,...

Photographic and Descriptive Musculoskeletal Atlas of Chimpanzees: With Notes on the Attachments, Variations, Innervation, Function and Synonymy and Weight of the Muscles

Photographic and Descriptive Musculoskeletal Atlas of Chimpanzees: With Notes on the Attachments, Variations, Innervation, Function and Synonymy and Weight of the Muscles

Rui Diogo, Josep M. Potau, Juan F. Pastor

February 19, 2013

Chimpanzees, including common chimpanzees and bonobos, are our closest living relatives. This book, which is the first photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal atlas of the genus Pan, adopts the same format as the photographic atlases of Gorilla and Hylobates previously published by the same...

Biomaterials for Stem Cell Therapy: State of Art and Vision for the Future

Biomaterials for Stem Cell Therapy: State of Art and Vision for the Future

Loredana De Bartolo, Augustinus Bader

January 28, 2013

Focused on stem cell applications, this book bridges the fields of biomaterials, offering new insights into constructing and regenerating tissues and organs. Its unique feature is linking diseases of the human body to current thinking on how to deal with them in the context of current concepts and...

Genetic Sex Differentiation in Fish

Genetic Sex Differentiation in Fish

T. J. Pandian

June 05, 2012

A comprehensive study of sex differentiation gonochoric and hermaphroditic fishes, this book examines sex chromosomes and sex determining genes, emphasizing the need to search for more than one sex-determining gene residing on different chromosomes. It traces the origin of hermaphrodites from...

Metamorphosis in Fish

Metamorphosis in Fish

Sylvie Dufour, Karine Rousseau, B. G. Kapoor

March 08, 2012

This book gathers current data on the two types of fish metamorphoses and their endocrine controls. It will be of interest for fish biologists as well as comparative physiologists and endocrinologists. Metamorphosis is a major developmental phase characterized by morphological and physiological...

Comparative Anatomy and Phylogeny of Primate Muscles and Human Evolution

Comparative Anatomy and Phylogeny of Primate Muscles and Human Evolution

Rui Diogo, Bernard A. Wood

January 11, 2012

This book challenges the assumption that morphological data are inherently unsuitable for phylogeny reconstruction, argues that both molecular and morphological phylogenies should play a major role in systematics, and provides the most comprehensive review of the comparative anatomy, homologies and...

Ronald D Hood

December 14, 2011

The purpose of this third edition of Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology is to provide a practical guide to developmental and reproductive toxicology in a regulatory environment. In addition to a comprehensive update of current chapters, the third edition been revised to reflect recent...

Sex Determination in Fish

Sex Determination in Fish

T. J. Pandian

September 02, 2011

This book is the first to report that research in allogenics/xenogenics has conclusively shown that fishes have retained bisexual potency even after sexual maturity and spermiation. The XY genotype found in the unexpected female phenotypes sired by supermales (Y1Y2) and androgenic males (Y2Y2)...

Current Research in Embryology

Current Research in Embryology

Sabine Globig

April 15, 2011

Embryology—the study of embryos—is the branch of biological science that examines the formation and early development of an individual organism from fertilization of the egg (ovum) to birth. This collection of articles by embryology experts discusses research on some of the most important topics in...
