    Dobzhansky, Theodosius: A geneticist and zoologist best known for his research in population genetics using the fruit fly. Within organisms, genetic information is physically represented as chromosomeswithin which it is represented by a particular sequence of amino acids in particular DNA molecules. Thanks to the work of Robert Remak and Rudolf Virchowhowever, by the s most biologists accepted all three tenets of what came to be known as cell theory. The term can also be applied to larger groups of organisms, as in "the adaptive radiation of mammals.

    The scientific name of an organism is generated from its genus and species. Bivalves include clams, oysters, scallops, mussels, and other shellfish. It includes the kinetoplastids e. In he described a fossil skull collected near Taung in South Africa, naming it Australopithecus africanus. Harvey, Ralph: A geologist whose work includes the study of geological processes at a range of scales, from the smallest nanometer to broader-scale interpretations of the history experienced by geological materials. Surrogate: an organism or material that serves as a substitute for biological warfare agent.

    It's harder to sell a book if you have too much competition, and prices for that book tend to start going down. Publishers such as Walter J. At a genetic level, it produces recombination. Chemical reactions that are responsible for its structure and function are tuned to extract energy from substances that act as its food and transform them to help form new cells and sustain them. See genetic programminggenetic algorithm. Some molecular biologists, when comparing two sequences, call the corresponding sites "homologous" if they have the same nucleotide, regardless of whether the similarity is evolutionarily shared from a common ancestor or convergent.

The central and rightmost cell are in interphaseso the entire nuclei are labeled. He is the author of several popular books on human origins. A revised BioCode that, instead of replacing the existing codes, would provide a unified context for them, was proposed in Prokaryotes - single-celled organisms that are the earliest and most primitive forms of life on earth.

Chromosomes consist of the DNA with various proteinsparticularly histones, bound to it. Known for his efforts at various sorts of measurement he developed fingerprinting and was a pioneer in statisticshe was knighted in Conway Morris established a link between the Ediacaran fossils, a Burgess Shale fernlike frond Thaumaptilon, and the modern seapens, colonial animals related to the corals.

It was introduced by J. The field of animal physiology extends the tools and methods of human physiology to non-human species. Recent molecular data have generally reinforced the evolutionary significance of the kingdoms Animalia, Plantae, and Fungi.

Then, inSchleiden and Schwann began promoting the now universal ideas that 1 the basic unit of organisms is the cell and 2 that individual cells have all the characteristics of lifealthough they opposed the idea that 3 all cells come from the division of other cells.

If you're unable to find a comparable copy on Biblio, try using BookGilt which searches for antiquarian and rare books across the entire internet. Grant, Peter and Rosemary: Biologists whose long-term research focuses on finches in the Galapagos Islands, and the evolutionary impact of climatic and environmental changes on their populations.

There are a number of ways that a book may, at first glance, look to be a rare collectible, but upon closer examination doesn't match up. Consequently, evolution is central to all fields of biology.

Chromatid - one of two identical copies of a replicated chromosome. His recognition that the virus is active right from the beginning of infection led him to initiate the deployment of a combination of drugs to overpower the virus.

Compare with biological species conceptcladistic species conceptphenetic species conceptand recognition species concept. There are six classes: bacteria, fungi, rickettsiae, chlamydia, viruses, and toxins. Compare with derived homology. There are some great modules that go in-depth on specific topics "Hormones and Behavior" and "Biochemistry of Love" modules are very interesting.

Mitochondria - cell organelles that convert energy into forms that are usable by the cell. The pupil of a human eye is a self-adjusting aperture. It describes the spread of chemical concentration or allele frequency through physical space and also the spread of a probability distribution through the space of allele or genotype frequencies.

They have a small cup-shaped body covered with hard plates and five radiating pairs of feathery flexible arms surrounding the mouth at the top.

Operational test and evaluation: The field test, under realistic conditions, of an item or a key component of weapons, equipment, or munitions for the purpose of determining the effectiveness and suitability of the weapons, equipment, or munitions for use in combat by typical military users, and the evaluation of the results of such tests.
