Developmental Genetics of the Flower: Advances in Botanical by Doug Soltis,Pamela Soltis,Jim Leebens-Mack

By Doug Soltis,Pamela Soltis,Jim Leebens-Mack

present significant pursuits during this region contain the research of upper point phylogenetic relationships and personality evolution within the angiosperms, floral evolution, the genetic foundation of key floral changes in basal angiosperms, the genetic and genomic effects of polyploid speciation, conservation genetics of infrequent plant species, and phylogeography. Developmental Genetics of the Flower presents a chain of papers interested by the developmental genetics of flowering in addition to the genetic keep an eye on of the timing of flowering. research of speciational mechanisms, evolutionary relationships, and personality evolution in flowering crops and land vegetation using numerous experimental ways are mentioned. The chapters are very good reports of the present fast-moving quarter of research.

  • Provides a quick assessment of genes identified to manage flower development
  • Articles emphasize the vintage ABC version of flower development

The Neural Crest in Development and Evolution

A dialogue of the neural crest and neural crest cells, facing their discovery, their embryological and evolutionary origins, their mobile derivatives - in either agnathan and jawed vertebrates or gnathostomes - and the vast issues of migration and differentiation in basic improvement. The ebook additionally considers what is going unsuitable while improvement is misdirected by way of mutations, or by way of publicity of embryos to exogenous brokers equivalent to medicines, alcohol, or extra diet A, and contains discussions of tumours and syndromes and beginning defects concerning neural crest cells.

Evolving Pathways: Key Themes in Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', is the research of the connection among evolution and improvement. Dealing particularly with the generative mechanisms of organismal shape, evo-devo is going instantly to the middle of the developmental foundation of edition, the uncooked fabric on which traditional choice (and random flow) can paintings.

Biology of Aging

Biology of getting older provides the organic rules that experience ended in a brand new knowing of the explanations of getting older and describes how those easy ideas aid one to appreciate the human event of organic getting older, toughness, and age-related sickness. meant for undergraduate biology scholars, it describes how the speed of organic getting older is measured; explores the mechanisms underlying mobile getting older; discusses the genetic pathways that have an effect on durability in numerous organisms; outlines the traditional age-related alterations and the sensible decline that happens in physiological structures over the lifespan; and considers the results of modulating the speed of getting older and toughness.

The Social Origins of Language (Duke Institute for Brain Sciences Series)

How human language advanced from the necessity for social communicationThe origins of human language stay hotly debated. regardless of growing to be appreciation of cognitive and neural continuity among people and different animals, an evolutionary account of human language—in its glossy form—remains as elusive as ever.
