The rainbow and the worm the physics of organisms by Mae-Wan Ho ( )
23 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 1,688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This highly unusual book began as a serious inquiry into Schrodinger's question, "What is life?", and as a celebration of life itself, It takes the reader on a voyage ofdiscovery through many areas of contemporary physics, from non-equilibrium thermodynamics and quantum optics to liquid crystals and fractals, all necessary for illuminating the problem of life, In the process, the reader is treated to a rare and exquisite view of the organism, gaining novel insights not only into the physics, but also into "the poetry and meaning of being alive."" "This much-enlarged third edition includes new findings on the central role of biological water in organizing living processes; it also completes the author's novel theory of the organism and its applications in ecology, physiology and brain science."--Jacket
Beyond neo-Darwinism : an introduction to the new evolutionary paradigm ( Book )
8 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Living rainbow H2O by Mae-Wan Ho ( )
9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a sequel to The Rainbow and the Worm, The Physics of Organisms, which has remained in a class of its own for nearly 20 years since the publication of the first edition. Living Rainbow H<sub>2</sub>O continues the fascinating journey in the author's quest for the meaning of life, in science and beyond. Like The Rainbow and The Worm, the present book will appeal to readers in the arts and humanities as well as scientists; not least because the author herself is an occasional artist and poet. Great care has been taken to explain terms and concepts for the benefit of the general reader. At the same time, sufficient scientific details are provided in text boxes for the advanced reader and researcher without interrupting the main story
Energy and information transfer in biological systems how physics could enrich biological understanding : proceedings of the international workshop, Acireale, Catania, Italy, 18-22 September 2002 ( )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains papers based on the workshop "Energy and Information Transfer in Biological Systems: How Physics Could Enrich Biological Understanding", held in Italy in 2002. The meeting was a forum aimed at evaluating the potential and outlooks of a modern physics approach to understanding and describing biological processes, especially regarding the transition from the microscopic chemical scenario to the macroscopic functional configurations of living matter. In this frame some leading researchers presented and discussed several basic topics, such as the photon interaction with biological systems also from the viewpoint of photon information processes and of possible applications; the influence of electromagnetic fields on the self-organization of biosystems including the nonlinear mechanism for energy transfer and storage; and the influence of the structure of water on the properties of biological matter
Genetic engineering : dream or nightmare? : turning the tide on the brave new world of bad science and big business by Mae-Wan Ho ( Book )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book examines the social and political implications of the intimate involvement of genetic engineering science with big corporate business, and it points to serious hazards that are inherent in the technology but are largely ignored by practitioners and regulators alike." "The author calls for a halt to commercialisation and for an independent public enquiry into the hazards involved, taking into account the most comprehensive scientific findings as well as the socio-economic and ethical implications."--BOOK JACKET
Genetic engineering, dream or nightmare? : the brave new world of bad science and big business by Mae-Wan Ho ( Book )
6 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume claims that genetic engineering is inadequately researched technology that is out of control. It aims to show how genetic determinism is at odds with the reality of scientific findings

Génie génétique : des chercheurs citoyens s'expriment : pièces nouvelles au dossier des organismes génétiquement modifiés ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Les organismes génétiquement modifiés (OGM) arrivent avec précipitation dans la médecine et l'agriculture, sans qu'il soit possible d'apprécier avec un minimum de recul leur utilité réelle et leurs éventuels effets négatifs sur la santé et l'environnement. Ce livre apporte de nouvelles pièces au dossier et traite aussi des dimensions socio-économiques, juridiques et éthiques
