Origination of organismal form : beyond the gene in developmental and evolutionary biology( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of evolutionary biology arose from the desire to understand the origin and diversity of biological forms. In recent years, however, evolutionary genetics, with its focus on the modification and inheritance of presumed genetic programs, has all but overwhelmed other aspects of evolutionary biology. This has led to the neglect of the study of the generative origins of biological form. Drawing on work from developmental biology, paleontology, developmental and population genetics, cancer research, physics, and theoretical biology, this book explores the multiple factors responsible for the origination of biological form. It examines the essential problems of morphological evolution--why, for example, the basic body plans of nearly all metazoans arose within a relatively short time span, why similar morphological design motifs appear in phylogenetically independent lineages, and how new structural elements are added to the body plan of a given phylogenetic lineage. It also examines discordances between genetic and phenotypic change, the physical determinants of morphogenesis, and the role of epigenetic processes in evolution. The book discusses these and other topics within the framework of evolutionary developmental biology, a new research agenda that concerns the interaction of development and evolution in the generation of biological form. By placing epigenetic processes, rather than gene sequence and gene expression changes, at the center of morphological origination, this book points the way to a more comprehensive theory of evolution
Biological physics of the developing embryo by G Forgács( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written to be accessible both to biologists and physicists, major stages and components of biological development are introduced and then analyzed from the viewpoint of physics. The presentation of physical models requires no mathematics beyond basic calculus. With full-color figures throughout, this comprehensive textbook teaches biophysics by application to developmental biology, and is suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses in physics and biology."--Jacket

Biological aspects of complex chemical systems by Stuart Newman( )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Multiscale Modeling of Developmental Systems. Current Topics in Developmental Biology, Volume 81( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multiscale modeling of developmental systems by Santiago Schnell( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since a formulated concept of functionally graded materials (FGMs) was proposed in 1984 as a means of preparing thermal barrier materials, a coordinated research has been developed since 1986. The 125 papers presented here present state of the art research results and developments on FGM from the past decade. A wide spectra of topics are covered including design and modeling, fracture analysis, powder metallurgical processes, deposition and spray processes, reaction forming processes, novel processes, material evaluation for structural applications, organic and intelligent materials.

Biological Phys Develop Embryo( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During development cells and tissues undergo changes in pattern and form that employ a wider range of physical mechanisms than at any other time in an organism's life. This book shows how physics can be used to analyze these biological phenomena. Written to be accessible to both biologists and physicists, major stages and components of the biological development process are introduced and then analyzed from the viewpoint of physics. The presentation of physical models requires no mathematics beyond basic calculus. Physical concepts introduced include diffusion, viscosity and elasticity, adhesion, dynamical systems, electrical potential, percolation, fractals, reaction-diffusion systems, and cellular automata. With full-color figures throughout, this comprehensive textbook teaches biophysics by application to developmental biology and is suitable for graduate and upper-undergraduate courses in physics and biology
