"All coordination between cells, organs, and organisms depends on successful biocommunicative processes. There are abundant cases of communication in the biological world, both within (intraspecific) and between (interspecific) single-cell and multicellular microorganisms and higher animal forms. Split into two parts, this book first looks at the history, development and progress within the field of biocommunication. The second part presents real-life case studies and investigation into examples of biocommunication in the biological world. Among the organisms covered are bacteria, fungi, plants, terrestrial and marine animals, including bonobos, chimpanzees and dolphins, as well as a new theory of communication between parts in developing embryos (cybernetic embryos). Contributions from international experts in the field provide up-to-date research and results, while in depth analysis expands on these findings to pave the way for future discoveries. As the first comprehensive review of its kind, it is perfect for undergraduates, graduates, professionals and researchers in the field of life sciences."--Publisher's website.

"The scope of this extraordinary selection of essays, distilled from nearly a thousand works that the author has written, is literally the entire universe and universe of knowledge. It charts the author's quest for the meaning of life faced with a dominant knowledge system she regards as incoherent, meaningless, and often acting against people and planet. She shows how contemporary scientific findings across all disciplines already provide an authentic knowledge system that's coherent with life and the universe. The aim is to transform science thoroughly from inspiration to research to applications that work for people and planet. This book is simply unique in its scope and content. There is no equivalent. The author surveys and explains contemporary science in depth ranging over philosophy, anthropology, quantum physics and chemistry, neurobiology, psychology, genetics and epigenetics, cosmology, art, humanities, and mathematics. It presents a truly holistic view of nature, with profound implications for life in the social, political, and personal realm."--Publisher's website.

"Ecological Models and Dynamics" uses mathematical models and computer simulations to study the dynamics of ecosystems, both natural and in response to disturbances. As an electronic 'pop-up' textbook, it features functional software programs deliberately placed to enhance learning. Links throughout the text jump to relevant parts of the book and to files in Microsoft Excel[registered], Mathcad[registered], Adobe Acrobat[registered], and LabVIEW . Students can run simulations and models in immediate proximity to the concepts being explained and can work through exercises, cross reference concepts, read data tables in adjoining windows, and navigate the text instantaneously. The text starts with basic concepts and from there builds in complexity.Instructors can integrate additional research and data into the interactive examples and narrative, thereby customizing the coverage to suit their course needs. Exercises are included at the end of each chapter and hyperlinked to relevant concepts in the text. The book is written for advanced undergraduates and early graduate students in ecology, evolutionary biology, chemistry, and engineering; the book can also be used for graduate students in biology and as a self-tutorial. Solutions to all exercises throughout the book will be provided to qualified adopters of the text. Entries to the book's subject index will be hyperlinked to relevant chapters. The textbook is accompanied by a booklet containing the prologue, introduction, conceptual table of contents, subject index, and instructions for Mathcad and navigation throughout the book.

"Differential Expressions: Key Experiments in Developmental Biology" is a CD-ROM that illustrates the lives and work of six influential scientists in the field. Each ten to 12 minute segment depicts a seminal experiment in developmental biology, combining extensive illustrations and original experimental video with a videotaped interview of the scientist who performed it. Hearing these biologists talk informally about their work, students come away with a sense of the warmth and humanity of these great names who, despite personal or historical circumstances, had the courage to see what others had not. The CD-ROM is augmented, through an internet connection, by additional information about each scientist.
