Document Type: Book
All Authors / Contributors: Olan R Hyndman
OCLC Number: 1510801
Description: xxi, 648 pages illustrations
Contents: Orientations and preliminary statements of hypotheses concerning the origin of living mattter. Life in relation to energy transformation ; On the origin of living substance ; On the origin and evolution of the germ integer--the first order of differentiation ; On the origin and evolution of the cell--the second order of differentiation ; On the origin and nature of multicellular organisms, and "unicellular" organisms (in the third order)--the third order of differentiation ; Differentiation and retracement ; Chromatin is the master reactor of many adaptable talents and unlimited versatility --
Reproduction. Reproduction in the first and second orders of differentiation ; Reproduction in the third order of differentiation. Multicellular forms ; Various mechanisms of reproduction and their relationship to maturation as illustrated by occurrences in nature ; "Asexual" methods of reproduction are only manifestations of extended growth in terms of organisms ; The sexual mode of reproduction ; Reproduction in unicellular forms in the third order of differentiation ; On the meaning of polar body formation. Parthenogenesis ; Asexual and sexual reproduction ; An analysis of the sexual mode of reproduction in the major categories of third order differentiation and a derivation of far reaching principles and implications --
Organic evolution. The development of broad concepts in relation to organic evolution ; The development of concepts relating to heredity or inheritance ; Concepts relating to adaptation and descent with change --
Evolution, a proposed theory. On adaptation ; On heredity ; Application of the concepts of adaptation and heredity ; The concept of retracement and its importance to the theory ; On the origin of species ; Bacteria, plants and animals. Analysis of parasites and saprophytes with the instrument of the germ integer concept ; On senescence and death of the individual --
Addendum. Limitations and constrictions of the view toward living things which have probably accounted in considerable measure for the prolonged failure to bring them and the total system of organic evolution within the jurisdiction of natural law ; The theory and determinism.
