TitleCosmic biology : how life could evolve on other worlds
Author(s)Louis N. Irwin;Dirk Schulze-Makuch
PublicationNew York, 1. Published in association with Praxis Pub 2. Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (xxi, 337 p.) : ill. (some col.)
Abstract NoteIn Cosmic Biology, Louis Irwin and Dirk Schulze-Makuch guide readers through the range of planetary habitats found in our Solar System and those likely to be found throughout the universe. Based on our current knowledge of chemistry, energy, and evolutionary tendencies, the authors envision a variety of possible life forms. These range from the familiar species found on Earth to increasingly exotic examples possible under the different conditions of other planets and their satellites. Discussions of the great variety of life forms that could evolve in these diverse environments have become par

TitleEssential building blocks of human nature
Author(s)Ulrich J. Frey (ed.);Charlotte St�ormer (ed.);Kai P. Willf�uhr (ed.)
PublicationHeidelberg, Springer-Verlag, 2011.
Description1 online resource (xiv, 158 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteTo understand why we humans are as we are, it is necessary to look at the essential building blocks that comprise our nature. The foundations of this structure are our evolutionary origins as primates and our social roots. Upon these rest features such as our emotions, language and aesthetic preferences, with our self-perceptions, self-deceptions and thirst for knowledge right at the top. The unifying force holding these blocks together is evolutionary theory. Evolution provides a deeper understanding of human nature and, in particular, of the common roots of these different perspectives. To b

TitleBiophysics of DNA-protein interactions : from single molecules to biological systems
Author(s)Mark C. Williams (ed.);L. James Maher (ed.);III (ed.)
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (x, 349 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteDespite the rapid expansion of the field of biophysics, there are very few books that comprehensively treat specific topics in this area. Recently, the field of single molecule biophysics has developed very quickly, and a few books specifically treating single molecule methods are beginning to appear. However, the promise of single molecule biophysics is to contribute to the understanding of specific fields of biology using new methods. This book would focus on the specific topic of the biophysics of DNA-protein interactions, and would include the use of new approaches, including both bulk met
