*Tóm tắt : The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Biology is an exciting collection of new essays written especially to give the reader an introduction to one of the most vibrant areas of scholarship today, and at the same time to move the subject forward dramatically. Written in a clear and rigorous style it will give the more experienced scholar much to think about and will also be of great value to the new student of the subject. The handbook covers the history of the topic, then moves into important analyses of contemporary evolutionary thinking, and continues with discussions of genetics and the moral and epistemological foundations of our understanding of heredity. The book goes on to cover ecology, behavior and morality, and does not neglect religion or feminist issues. Finally, it takes up matters to do with language and metaphor .

Nhan đề: In Mendel’s mirror : philosophical reflections on biology / Philip Kitcher Số phân loại : 570.1 PH309; Đặc điểm vật lý: xv, 385 tr. : ill. (some col.) ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : The book's title refers to Gregor Mendel, an Augustinian monk who was one of the first scientists to develop a theory of heredity. Mendel's work has been deeply influential to our understanding of our selves and our world, just as the study of genetics today will have a profound and long-term impact on future scientific research. Kitcher's articles cover a broad range of topics with similar philosophical and social significance: sociobiology, evolutionary psychology, species, race, altruism, genetic determinism, and the rebirth of creationism in Intelligent Design .

Nhan đề: Fitting models to biological data using linear and nonlinear regression : a practical guide to curve fitting / Harvey Motulsky & Arthur Christopoulos Số phân loại : 570.15118 H109; Đặc điểm vật lý: 351 p. : ill. ; 25 cm
Tác giả khác: Arthur Christopoulos
*Tóm tắt : Most biologists use nonlinear regression more than any other statistical technique, but there are very few places to learn about curve-fitting. This book, by the author of the very successful Intuitive Biostatistics, addresses this relatively focused need of an extraordinarily broad range of scientists .

Nhan đề: Light microscopy in biology : a practical approach / Alan J. Lacey Số phân loại : 570.282 A103; Đặc điểm vật lý: xxii, 452 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : Since the first edition of Light Microscopy in Biology: A Practical Approach was published, techniques in modern light microscopy have improved considerably. This fully updated edition includes new material on topics from the first edition as well as a number of completely new approaches. It begins with an explanation of the basic techniques and goes on to describe current methods in chromosome microscopy, immunohistochemistry, fluorescence microscopy, image building and video microscopy. New topics include confocal microscopy, calcium and pH imaging, microinjection techniques and nanovid microscopy. It also includes newly added chapters devoted to reflection contrast microscopy and histomorphometry. This edition will prove an invaluable resource for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in biomedicine and cell biology--both those experienced with the techniques and newcomers to the field .

Nhan đề: Handbook of biomedical nonlinear optical microscopy / Barry R. Masters, Peter T.C. So Số phân loại : 570.282 B279; Đặc điểm vật lý: xxxiii, 860Tr : Minh họa ; 27 cm
Tác giả khác: Peter T.C. So
*Tóm tắt : The Handbook of Biomedical Nonlinear Optical Microscopy provides comprehensive treatment of the theories, techniques, and biomedical applications of nonlinear optics and microscopy for cell biologists, life scientists, biomedical engineers, and clinicians. The chapters are separated into basic and advanced sections, and provide both textual and graphical illustrations of all key concepts. The more basic sections are aimed at life scientists without advanced training in physics and mathematics, and tutorials are provided for the more challenging sections .
