Leonardo da Vinci on the Human Body

"It is a miracle that anybody guy must have saw, learn, and written down loads in one lifetime. " — Kenneth Clark
Painter, sculptor, musician, scientist, architect, engineer, inventor . . . might be no different determine so totally embodies the Western perfect of "Renaissance man" as Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo was once now not content material, even if, to grasp a creative procedure or list the mechanics of a tool; he was once pushed via an insatiable interest to appreciate why. His writings, pursuits, and musings are uniformly characterised by way of an incisive, probing, wondering brain. It was once with this piercing highbrow scrutiny and unique medical thoroughness that Leonardo undertook the research of the human body.
This unparalleled quantity reproduces greater than 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical drawings on 215 in actual fact published 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 by means of the prestigious scientific professors Drs. O'Malley and Saunders. of their interesting biographical creation, the authors evaluation Leonardo's place within the old improvement of anatomy and anatomical representation. every one plate is observed 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 outstanding for his or her amazing attractiveness and precision, Leonardo's anatomical drawings have been additionally a long way earlier than all modern paintings and scientifically the equivalent of something that seemed good into the 17th century. in contrast to such a lot of his predecessors and contemporaries, Leonardo took not anything on belief and had religion simply in his personal observations and experiments. In anatomy, as in his different investigations, Leonardo's nice contrast is the really clinical nature of his equipment. Herein then are over 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical illustrations geared up into 8 significant components of research: Osteological procedure, Myological process, Comparative Anatomy, apprehensive procedure, breathing approach, Alimentary approach, Genito-Urinary process, and Embryology.
Artists, illustrators, physicians, scholars, academics, scientists, and appreciators of Leonardo's impressive genius will locate in those 1,200 drawings the fitting union of paintings and technology. conscientiously particular and actual of their facts, attractive and colourful of their procedure, they continue to be at the present time — approximately 5 centuries later — the best anatomical drawings ever made.

Plant Development

A subgroup of homeobox genes, which play a massive position within the developmental strategies of quite a few multicellular organisms, Hox genes were proven to play a severe function in vertebrate development formation. Hox genes could be considered normal goal keep watch over genes-that is, they're related in lots of organisms and direct a similar methods in numerous organisms, from mouse, to fly, to human.

Fungi: Experimental Methods In Biology, Second Edition

Fungi at the moment are on the leading edge of analysis on mechanisms in gene silencing, organic rhythm, mating approaches, biogenesis of intracellular organelles, diversifications to antagonistic habitats, constitution of usual populations, and speciation. as a result of their small genomes, fungi are getting used in "systems biology" to appreciate the connections among genes, proteins, and metabolic and signaling pathways.

Sample text

The turbinates are highly complex structures located in the nasal cavities that provide a countercurrent exchange mechanism to preserve heat and water . Thus , during inspira tion , cool external air enters the respiratory tract and takes up heat and moisture from the turbinate linings . During expiration , this process is reversed and warm air is cooled as it passes over the turbinates . In this way water and heat are preserved in the organism . 15). Therefore , it seems that turbinates evolved in parallel with the evolution of mammalian and bird endothermy.
