Anatomy and Physiology

 

Academic Press, 1975.

ISBNs 9780121193010

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): The Rhesus Monkey, Volume I: Anatomy and Physiology discusses the anatomic and physiological measurement, microscopic anatomy, learning, skills, general behavior, and vocalization of rhesus monkey.
The rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta) is widely used for biomedical and psychological studies. Accordingly, an enormous fund of scientific information is available in papers and some collected data. This book is generally a collection of data from over 2000 papers on rhesus monkey. It covers topics on the cerebral angiography, electrocardiogram, and vector cardiogram of the rhesus monkey. It also provides additional information on morphology and function of rhesus kidney; the development and eruption of teeth in rhesus; and the histology and histochemistry of the rhesus monkey.
This book serves as an invaluable reference work for all who work with this primate.

Animal Population Ecology

 

Academic Press, 1975.

ISBNs 9780122095504

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Animal Population Ecology focuses on the interaction between the various factors that affect an animal population. Population ecology is the study of the factors that determine the abundance of species and is concerned with the identification and mode of action of those environmental factors that cause fluctuations in population size and of those which determine the extent of these fluctuations.

Organized into 11 chapters, the book initially examines some of the basic ideas about animal populations and defines many of the terms used by population ecologists. Then, it describes the action of the most important factors affecting population size. The interaction between these factors is demonstrated in chapters 8 and 9, wherein the results from studies of a few selected species are presented in detail. Finally, chapters 10 and 11 cover the development of generalized theories of population dynamics and their application to practical problems.
With a strong focus on intensive study of animal populations in the field, rather than elaborate theories, the book will be helpful to population ecologists, animal researchers, teachers, and students.

Animal Products in Human Nutrition

 

Academic Press, 1982.

ISBNs 9780120863808

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Animal Products in Human Nutrition evaluates the contributions of food derived from animals to a balanced diet.
The individual chapters in this book are organized into two major sections. The first section begins with a history of the use of animal-derived foods from the early ages of mankind, followed by a treatise of economic and resource costs of animal foods, including use of industrial and agricultural by-products and fish. Trends in the changes in the composition of American diets and the metabolism and disposition of common environmental toxins within animal tissues are also included in this section. The second section details the essential nutrients provided by animal products, as well as the possible effects of consumption of animal products on the development of hypertension, milk intolerance, infections from food-borne bacteria, cancer, and atherosclerosis.
This book will be useful to agricultural scientists, journalists, professionals that deal with human nutrition, and human nutritionists and dietitians.

Animal Virology

 

Academic Press, 1976.

ISBNs 9780120773503

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Animal Virology consists of papers presented in a meeting which considered broad issues and advances in animal virology and tumor viruses.
This book is divided into nine parts, representing the nine sessions of the meeting. Five of the nine sections deal particularly with viruses known to be oncogenic in animals, and one of these covers explicitly human oncornaviruses. The other four sections describe the processes common to all viruses: replication, protein synthesis, and persistence, wherein emphasis is given to negative strand viruses and plant viruses.

Anthocyanins As Food Colors

 

Academic Press, 1982.

ISBNs 9780124725508

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Anthocyanins as Food Colors aims to assemble scattered information on anthocyanins pertinent to food coloration. Both basic and applied aspects of these pigments are discussed.
Organized into nine chapters, this book begins with a discussion of the chemical structure of anthocyanins, followed by its copigmentation and biosynthesis. It then discusses the distribution of anthocyanin in food plants, as well as the compounds' stability in food. This work also looks into the analysis of anthocyanins and their presence in grapes and wine. Utilization of anthocyanins as food additives is addressed in the last chapter.
This book will provide additional information in order to maximize the visual appeal of these pigments both in products in which they are naturally present and in products to which they may be added as colorants.

Antibody Production in Man

In Vitro Synthesis and Clinical Implications

 

Academic Press, 1979.

ISBNs 9780122499500

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Antibody Production in Man: In Vitro Synthesis and Clinical Implications is composed of the proceedings of the Catharijne Conference on immunology held in Utrecht, Holland on March 15-18, 1978. The conference focuses on the in vitro induction and regulation of immunoglobulin and antibody synthesis by human lymphocytes. It aims to present, analyze, exchange, and criticize data among the different investigators and to attempt to resolve apparent inconsistencies and contradictions.
The book first discusses the mitogen- and antigen-induced B-cell activation. It then explains the subpopulations of lymphocytes involved in the regulation of in vitro B-cell function and the clinical implications in the study of in vitro B-cell function.
This book reflects the stimulation as well as the frustration during the workshop. It will serve as a small force and focus of direction in this most interesting, complex, and relevant area of human immunobiology.
