Living Laboratories: Women and Reproductive Technologies by Robyn Rowland

By Robyn Rowland

Imagine an unborn foetus having youngsters. In an international the place frozen embryo banks and test-tube infants are awarded because the 'norm', the culling of immature eggs from a feminine foetus is not any longer technology fiction. How does this impact our recommendations of parenting and mothering? What are the moral and ethical implications of study into human copy? Robyn Rowland argues that girls became 'living laboratories'. A booklet that has completed the prestige of a classic.

Highlights of Astronomy: As Presented at the XXIIIrd General by D. C. Heggie, Mirek Giersz, Rainer Spurzem, Koji Takahashi

By D. C. Heggie, Mirek Giersz, Rainer Spurzem, Koji Takahashi (auth.), J. Andersen (eds.)

Since 1967, the most medical occasions of the overall Assemblies of the foreign Astronomical Union were released within the separate sequence, Highlights of Astronomy. the current quantity eleven offers the foremost medical shows made on the XXIIIrd normal meeting, August 18-30, 1997, in Kyoto, Japan. the 2 volumes (11A+B) include the texts of the 3 Invited Discourses in addition to the complaints or prolonged summaries of the 21 Joint Discussions and distinctive periods held in the course of the common Assembly.

Bibliography 1935–69: General Organic Crystal Structures by Olga and Watson David G. (Edited By: ) Kennard

By Olga and Watson David G. (Edited By: ) Kennard

This categorized bibliography of natural and organometallic crystal constructions covers the interval 1935-1969 and gives references to over 4,000 compounds whose constructions have been analysed through X-ray or neutron-diffraction equipment. quantity 1 offers with basic natural buildings and quantity 2 with complexes, organometals and organo­ metalloids. The bibliography is the 1st of a brand new sequence of guides "Molecular constructions and Dimensions" ready on the Crystallo­ picture information Centre, college Chemical Laboratory, Cambridge. The Centre has been supported considering the fact that 1965 by way of the workplace for medical and Technical details as a part of the British contribution to foreign information actions. the most goal of the Centre is to gather a computer-based dossier containing either bibliographic info and numerical facts abstracted from the literature and suitable to molecular and crystal buildings, as got by way of diffraction tools. The dossier is designed to allow the checking of released numerical values, fairly interatomic distances and bond angles and to provide released ends up in a number of new methods. Contents of the dossier could be made on hand throughout the sequence "Molecular buildings and Dimensions" and likewise by way of the supply of information on magnetic tapes or discs. at the present the numerical information in relation to molecular dimensions are being checked and should be released, at a later date, as additional volumes during this sequence and likewise as magnetic tapes. The dossier is being prolonged to hide electron diffraction within the fuel phase.

The Genesis of General Relativity. Volume 1-4 by Jürgen Renn, Matthias Schemmel (eds.)

By Jürgen Renn, Matthias Schemmel (eds.)

This four-volume paintings represents the main finished documentation and examine of the production of normal relativity; one of many primary actual theories of the 20th century. It contains key assets from Einstein and others who from the past due 19th to the early 20th century contributed to this enormous improvement. a few of these resources are offered right here in translation for the 1st time. Einstein’s well-known Zurich laptop, which records the pivotal steps towards common relativity, is reproduced the following for the 1st time and transcribed in its entirety. The volumes supply designated commentaries and analyses of those resources which are according to an in depth analyzing of those records supplemented through interpretations via the best historians of relativity. All in all, the features of this paintings, in keeping with greater than a decade of analysis, mix to represent the most in-depth experiences of a systematic revolution ever written.

Mycotoxins, Wood Decay, Plant Stress, Biocorrosion, and by Robert C. Braunberg (auth.), Gerald C. Llewellyn, William V.

By Robert C. Braunberg (auth.), Gerald C. Llewellyn, William V. Dashek, Charles E. O’Rear (eds.)

This quantity, in contrast to the 3 previous it, represents the accumulated papers from an scan with an "electronic symposium". Co-participators during this symposium integrated The George Washington college, The Smithsonian establishment, Clark Atlanta collage, the Agriculture examine carrier of the U.S. division of Agriculture, The college of Georgia, Morris Brown university, Spellman university, Morehouse university, North Carolina country collage at Raleigh, the us foodstuff and Drug management, and the woodland provider of the USA division of Agriculture between others. This strange "electronic symposium" inspiration was once constructed through contributors of this system, making plans and Organizing Committee as a substitute to the extra high priced convention-type symposium. As sooner than, top scientists in particular subject parts have been invited to take part. subject consultation chairpersons have been inspired to rearrange their very own approach to communique via mobilephone, piece of email, or convention name, and record their findings again to the symposium heart on the George Washington college. extra papers have been approved from participants and laboratories who're actively enthusiastic about suitable components of study and research. Participation used to be additionally prepared for the world over confirmed scientists. overseas authors are represented herein from Nigeria, Italy, Spain, Brazil and Argentina. Our aim used to be to provide a learn composite quantity that mirrored present advancements, educated stories, new and lately constructing components of the current kingdom of data because it pertains to those continuing themes. the entire studies incorporated during this quantity have gone through clinical, technical and editorial peer review.

Lehrbuch der Histologie: Cytologie Histologie Mikroskopische by Professor Dr. med. Hermann Knoche (auth.)

By Professor Dr. med. Hermann Knoche (auth.)

Das vorliegende Lehrbuch der Histologie (Cytologie, Histologie. mikroskopische Anatomie) ist in erster Linie für den Gebrauch im theoretischen und praktischen Unterricht der Histologie und mikro­ skopischen Anatomie für Studierende der Medizin und Zahnmedizin gedacht. Auch für den Arzt, für Biologen und für die Tätigkeit in histologischen Laboratorien kann das Buch von Interesse sein. Stoff­ inhalt und Gliederung haben sich im wesentlichen am Gegenstands­ katalog für die ärztliche Vorprüfung orientiert. So wurden auch die entsprechenden Kapitel mit den in eckige Klammern gesetzten Ziffern des Gegenstandskatalogs versehen. Damit ist eine schnelle und einfache Orientierung des Studierenden im mikroskopisch-anatomischen Kursus und in der Vorbereitung zur ärztlichen Vorprüfung gewährleistet. Wo es aus Gründen des besseren Verständnisses und der Erfordernis der Praxis notwendig erschien. wurden einige Kapitel ausführlicher be­ handelt. Drucktypen und Anordnung des Textes sowie das Abbildungsmaterial gliedern das Buch 1. in ein ausführliches Lehrbuch der Histologie (unter Berücksichtigung des gesamten Textes); 2. in ein Kurzlehrbuch (unter Auslassen des .. petit"-gedruckten). das direkt auf den zu er­ arbeitenden Wissensstand des Gegenstandskataloges bezogen ist, und three. in ein als .. Basiswissen" bezeichnetes Repetitorium (grau unterlegt) zur direkten Vorbereitung für Prüfungen, Kurse und Vorlesungen. four. Die überwiegend zu Tafeln thematisch zusammengesetzten histo­ logischen Darstellungen können als Atlas der Histologie benutzt werden. Die histologische Wiedergabe orientiert sich weitgehend am Originalbefund, ermöglicht durch leichte Vereinfachung in der Dar­ stellung das Verständnis für das Fach Histologie.
