ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Common Marmoset in Captivity and Biomedical Research is the first text dedicated exclusively to this species,filling an urgent need for an encyclopedic compilation of the existing information. Sponsored by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine as part of its authoritative Blue Book series, the book covers the biology,management, diseases, and clinical and research applications of this important species. The common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) has come of age in the scientific community as a behaviorally complex, cognitively advanced,small, prolific, and easily maintained nonhuman primate with many of the advantages of larger animals, such as macaques, but without the attendant physical and zoonotic risks. Marmosets are currently being used in diverse areas of inquiry, including vision and auditory research, infectious disease, cognitive neuroscience, behavior, reproductive biology, toxicology and drug development, and aging. The marmoset genome has been sequenced and there is currently an intensive effort to apply gene editing technologies to the species. The creation of transgenic marmosets will provide researchers with a small nonhuman primate model to study a number of poorly understood disorders, like autism. Presents a complete view of the marmoset, covering their biology and management, diseases and clinical applications, and research applications Includes contributions from renowned and international authors and editors Provides the first authoritative and comprehensive treatment of marmosets in biomedical research as part of the ACLAM Series

Plucked

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

From the clamshell razors and homemade lye depilatories used in colonial America to the diode lasers and prescription pharmaceuticals available today, Americans have used a staggering array of tools to remove hair deemed unsightly, unnatural, or excessive. This is true especially for women and girls; conservative estimates indicate that 99% of American women have tried hair removal, and at least 85% regularly remove hair from their faces, armpits, legs, and bikini lines. How and when does hair become a problem—what makes some growth “excessive”? Who or what separates the necessary from the superfluous? In Plucked, historian Rebecca Herzig addresses these questions about hair removal. She shows how, over time, dominant American beliefs about visible hair changed: where once elective hair removal was considered a “mutilation” practiced primarily by “savage” men, by the turn of the twentieth century, hair-free faces and limbs were expected for women. Visible hair growth—particularly on young, white women—came to be perceived as a sign of political extremism, sexual deviance, or mental illness. By the turn of the twenty-first century, more and more Americans were waxing, threading, shaving, or lasering themselves smooth. Herzig’s extraordinary account also reveals some of the collateral damages of the intensifying pursuit of hair-free skin. Moving beyond the experiences of particular patients or clients, Herzig describes the surprising histories of race, science, industry, and medicine behind today's hair-removing tools. Plucked is an unsettling, gripping, and original tale of the lengths to which Americans will go to remove hair.

Release Date: 1999-08-23
Pages: 272
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Handbook of Laboratory Animal Bacteriology isolates bacteria in laboratory rodents and rabbits to assist veterinary pathologists and other animal caretakers in the management of these organisms. This book emphasizes those bacteria known to interfere with research protocols, and offers methods for isolation and differentiation among related bacteria. It also enables the bacteriologist to isolate and identify bacteria being part of the normal flora of these animals. In the first part of the book, information is given on how to sample and cultivate from the animals. Hereafter, general descriptions on various identification procedures are given. Topics include sampling and isolation techniques, staining methods, serology, PCR and other important tools. In the second part of the book, important laboratory animal bacteria have been described in relation to both characteristics of the agent and characteristics of infection. All categories of bacteria are systematically dealt with in order to help in their isolation and identification when examining rodents and rabbits. Traditional lab animals (mice, rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils and rabbits) harbor bacteria different from those found in humans and farm animals. Handbook of Laboratory Animal Bacteriology is an invaluable guide bacteriological monitoring of research colonies.
