Summary:
"This book reveals how single cells achieve the same sensoric capacity as multicellular organisms, such as plants or animals. It reviews the field, discussing the historical background, ecological significance, and related physiology of unicellular organisms, as well as various experimental techniques and models with which to study them. Those working on the biology of unicellular organisms - as well as in related  Read more...
