This book provides a comprehensive guide to the conceptual methodological, and epistemological problems of biology, and treats in depth the major developments in molecular biology and evolutionary theory that have transformed both biology and its philosophy in recent decades. At the same time the work is a sustained argument for a particular philosophy of biology that unifies disparate issues and offers a framework for expectations about the future directions of the life sciences. The argument explores differences between autonomist and anti-autonomist views of biology. The result is a vindication of reductionism, but one that is unexpectedly hollow. For it leaves the exponents of the autonomy of biology from physical science with as much as their view of biology really requires - and rather more than the reductionist might comfortably concede. Professor Rosenberg shows how the problems of the philosophy of biology are interconnected and how their solutions are interdependent, However, this book focuses more on the direct concerns of biologists, rather than the traditional agenda of philosophers' problems about biology. This departure from earlier books on the subject results both in greater understanding and relevance of the philosophy of science to biology as a whole.
Biological Science Fundamentals and Systematics is a component of Encyclopedia of Biological, Physiological and Health Sciences in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. The Theme on Biological Science Fundamentals and Systematics provides the essential aspects and a myriad of issues of great relevance to our world such as: History and Scope of Biological Sciences; The Origin and Evolution of Early Life; Evolution; Classification and Diversity of Life Forms; Systematics of Microbial Kingdom (s) and Fungi; Systematic Botany; Systematic Zoology: Invertebrates; Systematic Zoology: Vertebrates which are then expanded into multiple subtopics, each as a chapter. These four volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.
This text combines research-focused storytelling with the Socratic method to get students to think like practicing scientists. At each stage, students are asked to apply critical thinking skills as they learn key concepts. Accounts of real researchers designing and analysing experiments are punctuated by questions and exercises.

In recent years, advances in biological science and technology have outpaced policymakers' attempts to deal with them. Current Controversies in the Biological Sciences examines the ways in which the federal government uses scientific information in reaching policy decisions, providing case studies of the interactions between science and government on different biomedical, biological, and environmental issues. These case studies document a broad range of complex issues in science policy--from the Human Genome Project to tobacco regulation--and provide an accessible overview of both the science behind the issues and the policy-making process.The cases illustrate the different ways in which science and politics intersect in policy decisions, as well as the different forms policy itself may take--including not only regulatory action but the lack of regulation. Among the topics examined are public and private research funding, as seen in gene patenting; reluctance to regulate even when a product has been proven unhealthy, as in the case of tobacco; a comparison of U.S. and international policy responses to genetically modified organisms; and the competing interests at play in air pollution policy. Each chapter includes shorter side essays on related topics (for example, essays on issues raised by the SARS epidemic accompany the detailed case study of the public health response to the anthrax-laced mail received in the weeks after 9/11).This clear and readable introduction to controversial issues in the biological sciences will be a valuable resource for students of science policy and bioethics and for professionals in industry, government, and nongovernmental organizations who need background on emerging issues in the biological sciences.
An introduction to the physical principles of spectroscopy andtheir applications to the biological sciences Advances in such fields as proteomics and genomics place newdemands on students and professionals to be able to applyquantitative concepts to the biological phenomena that they arestudying. Spectroscopy for the Biological Sciences providesstudents and professionals with a working knowledge of the physicalchemical aspects of spectroscopy, along with their applications toimportant biological problems. Designed as a companion to Professor Hammes's Thermodynamics andKinetics for the Biological Sciences, this approachable yetthorough text covers the basic principles of spectroscopy,including: * Fundamentals of spectroscopy * Electronic spectra * Circular dichroism and optical rotary dispersion * Vibration in macromolecules (IR, Raman, etc.) * Magnetic resonance * X-ray crystallography * Mass spectrometry With a minimum of mathematics and a strong focus on applications tobiology, this book will prepare current and future professionals tobetter understand the quantitative interpretation of biologicalphenomena and to utilize these tools in their work.
Investigates the research and discoveries made by scientists who expanded the frontiers of physiology, genetics, ecology, botany, and molecular biology.
BSCS experts have packed this volume with the latest, most valuable teaching ideas and guidelines.
