Leonardo da Vinci on the Human Body

"It is a miracle that anybody 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 totally embodies the Western excellent of "Renaissance man" as Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo used to be no longer content material, although, to grasp an inventive procedure or list 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 was once with this piercing highbrow scrutiny and unique clinical thoroughness that Leonardo undertook the research of the human body.
This unheard of quantity reproduces greater than 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical drawings on 215 sincerely published black-and-white plates. The drawings were prepared in chronological series to show 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 clinical professors Drs. O'Malley and Saunders. of their interesting biographical creation, the authors assessment Leonardo's place within the ancient improvement of anatomy and anatomical representation. every one plate is observed via explanatory notes and an evaluate of the person plate and a sign of its dating to the paintings as a whole.
While impressive for his or her awesome good looks and precision, Leonardo's anatomical drawings have been additionally some distance just before 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 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 equipment. Herein then are over 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical illustrations geared up into 8 significant components of research: Osteological procedure, Myological approach, Comparative Anatomy, apprehensive procedure, respiration procedure, Alimentary procedure, Genito-Urinary process, and Embryology.
Artists, illustrators, physicians, scholars, lecturers, scientists, and appreciators of Leonardo's outstanding genius will locate in those 1,200 drawings the correct union of paintings and technology. rigorously distinctive and actual of their info, attractive and colourful of their method, they continue to be at the present time — approximately 5 centuries later — the best anatomical drawings ever made.

A subgroup of homeobox genes, which play a major position within the developmental procedures of quite a few multicellular organisms, Hox genes were proven to play a severe function in vertebrate trend formation. Hox genes may be regarded as normal goal regulate genes-that is, they're related in lots of organisms and direct an identical procedures in numerous organisms, from mouse, to fly, to human.

Fungi: Experimental Methods In Biology, Second Edition

Fungi at the moment are on the vanguard of analysis on mechanisms in gene silencing, organic rhythm, mating techniques, biogenesis of intracellular organelles, variations to adversarial 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.

Sample text

Despite the plethora of studies done to date, our understanding of, and research into, compost and compost tea is at an early evolutionary stage, particularly as it relates to predicting disease suppression levels under field conditions. The objectives of this chapter are to summarise current knowledge on enhancing soil suppressiveness using compost and compost tea. Predictors and mechanisms of disease suppression are discussed and factors affecting the efficacy of compost and compost tea are highlighted.

Microbial activity and substrate respiration) and microbiological (fluorescent pseudomonads and Trichoderma populations) properties of soil and their relationship to disease suppression are lacking and therefore needed. With regard to microbial community and functions, Boehm et al. (1997) concluded that a shift in the microbial community composition from Gram-negative bacteria, which generally have antagonistic ability, to Gram-positive bacteria, which are less able to antagonise soilborne pathogens, reduces the suppressive capacity of compost.

2004) reported that higher microbial diversity could not explain the suppression of Fusarium wilt (F. oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici) of tomato in plant growth media containing or not containing compost. More so, unlike the results of Nitta (1991), Borrero et al. (2004) found that lower diversity was not associated with conduciveness to Fusarium wilt. Though important, Borrero et al. (2004) cautioned that microbial diversity should not be regarded as a reliable predictor of disease suppression unless examined in the context of corresponding microbial activity and biomass.
