Revival: Growth of the Gastrointestinal Tract (1990)

1st Edition

Jean A. Morisset, Travis E. Solomon
February 14, 2019

This book provides an up-to-date summary of the large body of data regarding gastrointestinal hormones and growth factors involved in the development and maintenance of the architecture and physiological functions of the different organs of the digestive tract. The regulation of growth and...

Reproduction and Development in Annelida

1st Edition

T. J. Pandian
February 04, 2019

This book is a concise informative elucidation of all aspects of reproduction and development in annelids covering from arenicola to tubifex. Annelids flourish between 4,900 m depth to 2,000 m altitude; some of them occur in unusual habitats like hydrothermal vents and subterranean aquatic system (...

Fish Defenses Vol. 2: Pathogens, Parasites and Predators

1st Edition

Giacomo Zaccone
January 16, 2019

Dramatic changes in the environment, including habitat degradation and climate change, have focused attention on how individuals and populations respond to a shifting biotic and abiotic landscape. A critical step toward meeting this goal is a clear understanding of the capacity of individuals to...

Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny of Fishes (Agnathans and Bony Fishes): Phylogeny, Reproductive System, Viviparity, Spermatozoa

1st Edition

Barrie G M Jamieson
November 21, 2018

It is perhaps because fishes live in a buoyant medium, whether it be fresh or sea water, that they show a diversity in body shapes that is unparalleled by other vertebrates. There is also a unique diversity in the modes of reproduction, whether by external or internal fertilization, and this, with...

Reproduction of Amphibians

1st Edition

Maria Oielska
September 18, 2018

This book deals with reproduction of Amphibians belonging to three extant orders: Caecilians, Salamanders, Frogs and Toads. Separate chapters have been written for males and females; the chapters describe gonad structure and development, gametogenesis, urogenital connections, and reproductive...

Muscles of Chordates: Development, Homologies, and Evolution

1st Edition

Rui Diogo, Janine M. Ziermann, Julia Molnar, Natalia Siomava, Virginia Abdala
April 18, 2018

Chordates comprise lampreys, hagfishes, jawed fishes, and tetrapods, plus a variety of more unfamiliar and crucially important non-vertebrate animal lineages, such as lancelets and sea squirts. This will be the first book to synthesize, summarize, and provide high-quality illustrations to show what...

Reproduction and Development in Echinodermata and Prochordata

1st Edition

T. J. Pandian
April 05, 2018

Echinoderms and prochordates occupy a key position in vertebrate evolution. The genomes of sea urchin share 70% homology with humans. Researches on cell cycle in sea urchin and phagocytosis in asteroids have fetched Nobel Prizes. In this context, this book assumes immense importance. Echinoderms...

Cilia: Development and Disease

1st Edition

Paraskevi Goggolidou
February 28, 2018

The scope of the book is to highlight the diverse roles of cilia in human development and disease. Almost all cell types form cilia and although they were first detected about 200 years ago, their significance was unclear. In the past ten years, it has become obvious that cilia have got sensory...

The Biology of the First 1,000 Days

1st Edition

Crystal D Karakochuk, Kyly C. Whitfield, Tim J Green, Klaus Kraemer
September 20, 2017

The first 1,000 days, from conception to two years of age, is a critical period of growth and development. Exposures to dietary, environmental, hormonal, and other stressors during this window have been associated with an increased risk of poor health outcomes, some of which are irreversible. The...
