  • About Life Science

    Life Science improves our lives and informs our personal as well as societal decisions.  Our health depends on the latest research in laboratory animal science, genetics, and cellular and molecular biology. Environmental stewardship depends on knowledge of terrestrial and marine and aquatic ecosystems and organisms.  CRC Press publishes books from leading scientists on molecules to global environments, and on the distant past to the latest research findings. We publish for biomedical researchers, scholars in genetics, cell, developmental, molecular, and evolutionary biology, and researchers in ecology and the environmental sciences.

Environmental Sex Differentiation in Fish

Environmental Sex Differentiation in Fish

Featured

T. J. Pandian

December 22, 2014

Fish constitute an important natural renewable resource and any reduction in their ability to propagate as a result of human interference may have significant socioeconomic consequences. The negative effect of human activity on sex differentiation and reproductive output in fish is so diverse that i...

Forensic Entomology: International Dimensions and Frontiers

Forensic Entomology: International Dimensions and Frontiers

Jeffery Keith Tomberlin, M. Eric Benbow

March 03, 2015

The use of forensic entomology has become established as a global science. Recent efforts in the field bridge multiple disciplines including, but not limited to, microbiology, chemistry, genetics, and systematics as well as ecology and evolution. The first book of its kind, Forensic Entomology:...

Lipid Oxidation in Health and Disease

Lipid Oxidation in Health and Disease

Corinne M. Spickett, Henry Jay Forman

March 03, 2015

Oxidative modification of lipids and phospholipids—including radical damage, halogenation, and nitration—result in significant changes to the chemical properties of the molecules, which in turn have a major effect on their biochemical functions. Lipid oxidation has long been regarded as a...

Bioadhesion and Biomimetics: From Nature to Applications

Bioadhesion and Biomimetics: From Nature to Applications

Havazelet Bianco-Peled, Maya Davidovich-Pinhas

March 02, 2015

Bioadhesion is often defined as the state in which two materials, at least one of which is biological in nature, are held together for extended periods of time by interfacial forces. It is an area of active multidisciplinary research, where engineers, scientists—including chemists, physicists,...

Cells, Forces, and the Microenvironment

Cells, Forces, and the Microenvironment

Charles M. Cuerrier, Andrew E. Pelling

March 02, 2015

With the recent development of new experimental approaches and methodologies, it is becoming clear that cells and tissues are not regulated by biochemical signals alone. Indeed, physical cues arising in the biological microenvironment are directly coupled to the biochemical regulation of living...

Mechanobiology of the Endothelium

Mechanobiology of the Endothelium

Helim Aranda-Espinoza

February 25, 2015

The endothelium is an excellent example of where biology meets physics and engineering. It must convert mechanical forces into chemical signals to maintain homeostasis. It also controls the immune response, drug delivery through the vasculature, and cancer metastasis. Basic understanding of these...

How Enzymes Work: From Structure to Function

How Enzymes Work: From Structure to Function

Haruo Suzuki

February 05, 2015

For a long time, enzymes have been studied by measuring their activity, which has led to the advancement of "enzyme kinetics." In recent years, the mechanism of enzyme reaction has been explained in detail on the basis of the 3D structure. Genetic engineering and the 3D structural analysis of...
