Towards a Medical Anthropology of Ageing

The proportion of people over 65 is substantially increasing and will continue to do so in the coming decades. Societies are concerned about the depletion of pension funds and austere fiscal plans that are unable to subsidize the basic care, protection and needs of their growing elderly populations. Gerontology is rapidly becoming ...

Current Trends in Astrobiology

Astrobiology is a rapidly emerging field of intense scientific and technological activity, evident from the numerous recent space probes attempting to look for the possible existence of alien primeval life. This book explores the possibility of life on other planets and moons and exoplanets, either in their parent stars’ habitable ...

Evolution of Evolution

Numerous scholarly articles and books have been written about biologic and social evolution, compassion, life’s meaning, violence and predictions of future outcomes. However, what is not often addressed, but is increasingly desperately needed, is the realization of the evolutionary survival value of caring for others. This book str...

Nanotech and the Humanities

Researchers in the humanities and social sciences have examined nanotechnology for more than twenty years. Their interests include the history of nanotech, religious reactions, and public engagement with it. This collection shows that the humanities and social sciences contribute to our understanding of nanotechnology. It will also...

Basic Biology for Born Engineers

Physics owes much of its success to the application of differential calculus. Correspondingly, most laws of physics are formulated as differential equations. This success has created the prejudice that a science cannot be ‘exact’ unless it stands firmly on a foundation of calculus. This doesn’t, however, work for biology. Living th...

Evolution and I

This book is about evolution, and what each of us, our self and our consciousness, really are. It highlights how evolution influences the human self and what we think of as our individual personalities, our souls.The theory of evolution, first conceived by Charles Darwin, has been described as the best idea ever conceptualised, and...

Collagen, from Tissue Culture to Biomaterials, Tissue Engineering, and Beyond

As collagen is the main structural component of body tissues, there has been much effort expended, both in the past and today, to use it in cell culture applications. Indeed, its importance is further stressed by the wide use of collagen biomaterials in tissue repair and regeneration, including the treatment of burns, chronic wound...

How Organic Pollutants Poison Our Health

The human body is made up of quadrillions of individual cells, and each cell contains over a billion proteins. Some of these are long-lived and some are manufactured and degraded daily. In order to pack so many proteins into one cell, they are folded into intricate, complex shapes. The folded, three-dimensional shapes of proteins a...

The Physiology of the Endocrine System

Existing textbooks on endocrinology do not link theory to the practical world, and thus lead to students asking themselves “What should I do with all this knowledge?” This volume reduces the gap between theoretical knowledge and its practical applications through clinical references that reflect current trends in the management of ...

Breathing Life into Biology

This book shows that contemporary biology is focused almost exclusively on genes and molecules. This approach, despite giving rise to exciting developments, such as DNA sequencing and genetic engineering, does not take into account the living organisms themselves. This text redresses this imbalance: firstly, by providing a sketch o...

Inventing Transgender Children and Young People

The essays in this volume are written by clinicians, psychologists, sociologists, educators, parents and de-transitioners. Contributors demonstrate how ‘transgender children and young people’ are invented in different medical, social and political contexts: from specialist gender identity development services to lobby groups and th...

Recent Developments in Plant Biotechnology

This volume explores advances in plant biotechnology, and focuses on the use of lipids and proteins extracted from different kinds of plants tissues in potential industrial applications. In fact, lipidomics and proteomics refer to the advancement of technologies, such as chromatography and mass spectrometry, to study lipids and pro...
