Leonardo da Vinci on the Human Body

"It is a miracle that anyone guy must have saw, learn, and written down quite a bit in one lifetime. " — Kenneth Clark
Painter, sculptor, musician, scientist, architect, engineer, inventor . . . might be no different determine so totally embodies the Western excellent of "Renaissance man" as Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo used to be now not content material, despite the fact that, to grasp an inventive method or checklist the mechanics of a tool; he was once pushed by way of an insatiable interest to appreciate why. His writings, pursuits, and musings are uniformly characterised via an incisive, probing, wondering brain. It used to be with this piercing highbrow scrutiny and targeted clinical thoroughness that Leonardo undertook the learn of the human body.
This unheard of quantity reproduces greater than 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical drawings on 215 truly revealed black-and-white plates. The drawings were prepared in chronological series to demonstrate Leonardo's improvement and progress as an anatomist. Leonardo's textual content, which accompanies the drawings — occasionally explanatory, occasionally autobiographical and anecdotal — has been translated into English via the celebrated clinical professors Drs. O'Malley and Saunders. of their attention-grabbing biographical creation, the authors evaluation Leonardo's place within the old improvement of anatomy and anatomical representation. every one plate is followed by means of explanatory notes and an review of the person plate and a sign of its courting to the paintings as a whole.
While impressive for his or her impressive good looks and precision, Leonardo's anatomical drawings have been additionally a long way just before all modern paintings and scientifically the equivalent of whatever that seemed good into the 17th century. not like such a lot of his predecessors and contemporaries, Leonardo took not anything on belief and had religion purely in his personal observations and experiments. In anatomy, as in his different investigations, Leonardo's nice contrast is the really medical nature of his tools. Herein then are over 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical illustrations equipped into 8 significant parts of research: Osteological method, Myological process, Comparative Anatomy, frightened approach, breathing process, Alimentary process, Genito-Urinary method, and Embryology.
Artists, illustrators, physicians, scholars, lecturers, scientists, and appreciators of Leonardo's awesome genius will locate in those 1,200 drawings the best union of paintings and technology. conscientiously particular and exact of their information, attractive and colourful of their procedure, they continue to be this day — approximately 5 centuries later — the best anatomical drawings ever made.

Plant Development

A subgroup of homeobox genes, which play a huge position within the developmental tactics of various multicellular organisms, Hox genes were proven to play a serious position in vertebrate development formation. Hox genes should be regarded as normal objective keep watch over genes-that is, they're related in lots of organisms and direct an analogous tactics in various organisms, from mouse, to fly, to human.

Fungi: Experimental Methods In Biology, Second Edition

Fungi are actually on the leading edge of study on mechanisms in gene silencing, organic rhythm, mating strategies, biogenesis of intracellular organelles, variations to opposed habitats, constitution of traditional populations, and speciation. due to their small genomes, fungi are getting used in "systems biology" to appreciate the connections among genes, proteins, and metabolic and signaling pathways.
