Divided into two volumes, the book begins with a pedagogical presentation of some of the basic theory, with chapters on biochemical reactions, diffusion, excitability, wave propagation and cellular homeostasis. The second, more extensive part discusses particular physiological systems, with chapters on calcium dynamics, bursting oscillations and secretion, cardiac cells, muscles, intercellular communication, the circulatory system, the immune system, wound healing, the respiratory system, the visual system, hormone physiology, renal physiology, digestion, the visual system and hearing. New chapters on Calcium Dynamics, Neuroendocrine Cells and Regulation of Cell Function have been included. Reviews from first edition: Keener and Sneyd's Mathematical Physiology is the first comprehensive text of its kind that deals exclusively with the interplay between mathematics and physiology. Writing a book like this is an audacious act! -Society of Mathematical Biology Keener and Sneyd's is unique in that it attempts to present one of the most important subfields of biology and medicine, physiology, in terms of mathematical "language", rather than organizing materials around mathematical methodology. -SIAM review

The biological sciences cover a broad array of literature types, from younger fields like molecular biology with its reliance on recent journal articles, genomic databases, and protocol manuals to classic fields such as taxonomy with its scattered literature found in monographs and journals from the past three centuries. Using the Biological Literature: A Practical Guide, Fourth Edition is an annotated guide to selected resources in the biological sciences, presenting a wide-ranging list of important sources. This completely revised edition contains numerous new resources and descriptions of all entries including textbooks. The guide emphasizes current materials in the English language and includes retrospective references for historical perspective and to provide access to the taxonomic literature. It covers both print and electronic resources including monographs, journals, databases, indexes and abstracting tools, websites, and associations—providing users with listings of authoritative informational resources of both classical and recently published works. With chapters devoted to each of the main fields in the basic biological sciences, this book offers a guide to the best and most up-to-date resources in biology. It is appropriate for anyone interested in searching the biological literature, from undergraduate students to faculty, researchers, and librarians. The guide includes a supplementary website dedicated to keeping URLs of electronic and web-based resources up to date, a popular feature continued from the third edition.

Das Buch beschreibt die Grundlagen der mathematischen Modellierung zellulärer Systeme. Nach einer Klassifikation von Modellen wird schwerpunktmäßig auf deterministische Modelle eingegangen und für alle relevanten zellulären Prozesse entsprechende Gleichungen angegeben. Anschließend werden eine Reihe von Verfahren zur Modellanalyse vorgestellt. Etwas kürzer werden Verfahren zum Reverse Engineering und zur Analyse von Netzwerkgraphen abgehandelt. Am Ende werden noch Verfahren der Parameteridentifikation besprochen.

Wussten Sie, dass Sie mit einem Röhrling näher verwandt sind als mit einem Gänseblümchen oder Vögel den Krokodilen näher sind als Eidechsen? In den letzten 30 Jahren sind die Methoden der Klassifikation des Lebens völlig neu überdacht worden. Das Resultat stellt die bisherige Einteilung der mehr als 2 Millionen bekannten Arten auf den Kopf. Das Buch hilft, die organismische Vielfalt zu bewältigen, indem wesentliche Einteilungs- und Ordnungskriterien vorgestellt und bedeutende stammesgeschichtliche Entwicklungslinien diskutiert werden.

'[This reprinting is] most welcome. Even German readers have often to rely on the microform version of Koenigsberger which is part of the Landmark of Science collection. A book reprint will be much more useful. And since there is no biographical account of Helmholtz up until today, Koenigsberger remains the most important source...'--Dr. Henning SchmidgenHermann Ludwig Ferdinand von Helmholtz (1821-94) had a huge influence on German science during the mid nineteenth century, bringing it to the forefront of world attention. He was a physicist and psychologist who made seminal contributions in both fields. His Treatise on Physiological Optics (reprinted last year by Thoemmes Press) transformed the study of vision by integrating its physical and psychological dimensions. Helmholtz explained the mechanism of 'accommodation', invented the ophthalmoscope, and revived the three-colour theory of vision first proposed in 1801 by Thomas Young. He also invented the telestereoscope, produced some novel visual illusions, and argued for the involvement of knowledge in perception. Helmholtz was an inspiration to many others--notably his student Heinrich Hertz, the discoverer of radio waves.Leo Koenigsberger's three-volume Hermann von Helmholtz (1902-1903) is one of the great scientific biographies of the early twentieth century. Exhaustive and scholarly, it contains a wealth of detail about Helmholtz's personal and professional life. The books are illustrated with remarkable portraits, and a facsimile of a handwritten letter from Helmholtz to his father is included in an appendix. Koenigsberger's work remains the standard life of Helmholtz to this day. It has never been fully translated into English,and even in the original German it is scarce. At a time when interest in the life and work of Helmholtz is increasing across the world, Thoemmes Press is pleased to be able to make this vital source more widely available.

Die Paleo-Diät, auch Steinzeiternährung genannt, ist ein einfaches Konzept, das zum idealen Körpergewicht, optimaler Gesundheit und Leistungsfähigkeit führen soll. Dabei kommt es nicht aufs Kalorienzählen an, stattdessen besinnt man sich auf die natürliche Ernährung des Menschen. Man orientiert sich dabei an deren Ernährung, die ausschließlich Lebensmittel wie Fleisch, Fisch, Meeresfrüchte, Gemüse, Obst und Nüsse zur Verfügung hatten. Zucker, Konservierungsstoffe, Aromen oder künstliche Zusatzstoffe sind tabu.
