Description : Cell biology is a fascinating branch of biological sciences, providing answers to hitherto unanswered questions. It is the mother science to areas such as Molecular Biology, Molecular Genetics, Biotechnology, Recombinant DNA technology etc. During the last few decades, the science of cell biology has grown at an unprecedented pace with the consequence that voluminous information has accumulated on the subject. Cell and Molecular Biology is intended as a textbook for graduate (Honors) and postgraduate students of Life Sciences. It is being prepared in accordance with the UGC guidelines.

Description : As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts.As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning. The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced.Protein structures better illustrate structure–function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing openended questions highlighting “What We Don’t Know,” introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text, and these problems have been expanded to all chapters by adding questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens, and the immune system.
Description : When Biology: A Search for Order in Complexity was originally released in the early 0970s, it was the first text of its kind to challenge the long-standing assumption that a study of biology must be predicated upon the atheistic philosophy of Darwinian evolution. Now, over three decades later, as the so-called theory of evolution faces a deepening crisis, Christian Liberty Press is pleased to present a newly updated and improved version of the textbook that first challenged the modern scientific community with the validity of biblical creationism.Biology: A Search for Order in Complexity, Second Edition, is the culmination of over two years of diligent study and labor by a team of educators and scientists who are committed to giving students a greater understanding of and appreciation for the handiwork of Almighty God. Every effort has been made to ensure that this biology text is scientifically accurate and relevant to the needs of students in the twenty-first century. With gratefulness to the Creator of the whole earth, we humbly present this new edition to the public in the hope that it will be a powerful influence in the lives of those who are seeking true science and an understanding of life.
Description : Philosophy of Biology is a rapidly expanding field. It is concerned with explanatory concepts in evolution, genetics, and ecology. This collection of 25 essays by leading researchers provides an overview of the state of the field. These essays are wholly new; none of them could have been written even ten years ago. They demonstrate how philosophical analysis has been able to contribute to sometimes contested areas of scientific theory making. -Written by internationally acknowledged leaders in the field - Entries make original contributions as well as summarizing state of the art discoveries in the field - Easy to read and understand

Description : "Biology of Freshwater Pollution," is a highly regarded overview of the subject aimed at advanced undergraduates and professionals. This latest edition provides an up-to-date summary of the whole field covering recent research, case studies and examples. The book begins by describing contrasting examples of pollution events. Individual chapters then deal with the major types of pollution introducing their sources, exploring their impacts on biological systems and water resources using contemporary examples, and discussing methods for mitigating impacts. Techniques used to investigate pollution are introduced throughout and the penultimate chapter deals extensively with the biological assessment of water quality. The final chapter looks at water resource management in the twenty-first century and the role of the biologist in that process. Features of the new edition* "New "coverage of current issues: biomarkers, endocrine disruptors, global warming* "New "chapter on biological pollution (invasive species) * "New "combined chapters bringing together material on toxic pollutions and energy and pollution * Management chapter extensively revised including the new organisation of the water industry and new regulatory frameworks* "New "case studies and examples * References have been extensively updated This book is aimed at advanced students in Aquatic and Applied Biology, Limnology and Environmental Science and scientists working in the water industry. Christopher Mason is a Professor of Biology at the University of Essex, UK. He has extensive research experience in the fields of pollution and conservation of freshwater and coastal environments, including eutrophication, heavy metals and organochlorines.
Description : The papers in this volume represent original work to celebrate the centenary of the American Society of Zoologists. They illustrate the impressive nature of historical scholarship that has subsequently focused on the development of biology in the United States.
