Leonardo da Vinci on the Human Body

"It is a miracle that anyone guy must have saw, learn, and written down lots in one lifetime. " — Kenneth Clark
Painter, sculptor, musician, scientist, architect, engineer, inventor . . . might be no different determine so absolutely embodies the Western perfect of "Renaissance man" as Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo used to be no longer content material, although, to grasp an inventive approach or list the mechanics of a tool; he was once pushed through 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 distinctive medical 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 essentially revealed black-and-white plates. The drawings were prepared in chronological series to reveal Leonardo's improvement and development as an anatomist. Leonardo's textual content, which accompanies the drawings — occasionally explanatory, occasionally autobiographical and anecdotal — has been translated into English by way of the celebrated scientific professors Drs. O'Malley and Saunders. of their attention-grabbing biographical advent, the authors assessment Leonardo's place within the historic improvement of anatomy and anatomical representation. every one plate is followed through explanatory notes and an evaluate of the person plate and a sign of its dating to the paintings as a whole.
While striking for his or her notable good looks and precision, Leonardo's anatomical drawings have been additionally some distance prior to all modern paintings and scientifically the equivalent of something that seemed good into the 17th century. in contrast to so much 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 tools. Herein then are over 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical illustrations equipped into 8 significant components of research: Osteological procedure, Myological process, Comparative Anatomy, frightened process, breathing method, Alimentary process, Genito-Urinary process, and Embryology.
Artists, illustrators, physicians, scholars, lecturers, scientists, and appreciators of Leonardo's striking genius will locate in those 1,200 drawings the precise union of artwork and technology. conscientiously distinct and exact of their facts, appealing and colourful of their process, they continue to be this present day — approximately 5 centuries later — the best anatomical drawings ever made.

Plant Development

A subgroup of homeobox genes, which play a major position within the developmental strategies of quite a few multicellular organisms, Hox genes were proven to play a severe position in vertebrate trend formation. Hox genes might be considered basic goal keep watch over genes-that is, they're related in lots of organisms and direct a similar tactics in a number of organisms, from mouse, to fly, to human.

Fungi: Experimental Methods In Biology, Second Edition

Fungi at the moment are on the leading edge of study on mechanisms in gene silencing, organic rhythm, mating tactics, biogenesis of intracellular organelles, variations to adverse habitats, constitution of typical 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.
