Hormones and Reproduction of Vertebrates, Volume 2 Elsevier Science & Technology
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This series of volumes represents a comprehensive and integrated treatment of reproduction in vertebrates from fishes of all sorts through mammals. It is designed to provide a readable, coordinated description of reproductive basics in each group of vertebrates as well as an introduction to the latest trends in reproductive research and our understanding of reproductive events. Whereas each chapter and each volume is intended to stand alone as a review of that topic or vertebrate group, respectively, the volumes are prepared so as to provide a thorough topical treatment across the vertebrates. Terminology has been standardized across the volumes to reduce confusion where multiple names exist in the literature, and a comprehensive glossary of these terms and their alternative names is provided. The key features of the book include: a complete, essential and up to date reference for research scientists working on vertebrate hormones and reproduction - and on animals as models in human reproductive research; covers the endocrinology, neuroendocrinology, physiology, behaviour and anatomy of vertebrate reproduction; structured coverage of the major themes for all five vertebrate groups allows a consistent treatment for all; and special chapters elaborate on features specific to individual vertebrate groups and to comparative aspects, similarities and differences between them.

[This book] brings together high-quality papers from many different fields: endocrinology, evolutionary biology, demography, economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology...It can be seen as a practical tool for researchers in the field, and it provides a large amount of data across a wide range of populations and helps to find a common ground between theories emerging from different fields. It is the kind of book that will never end up in the last dusty row of your shelves because you will continually refer to it, picking up here and there empirical and theoretical data for the next decades. BioOne. Research Evolved From a comparative perspective, human life histories are unique and raising offspring is unusually costly: humans have relatively short birth intervals compared to other apes, childhood is long, mothers care simultaneously for many dependent children (other apes raise one offspring at a time), infant mortality is high in natural fertility/mortality populations, and human females have a long post-reproductive lifespan. These features conspire to make child raising very burdensome. Mothers frequently defray these costs with paternal help (not usual in other ape species), although this contribution is not always enough. Grandmothers, elder siblings, paid allocarers, or society as a whole, help to defray the costs of childcare, both in our evolutionary past and now. Studying offspring care in a various human societies, and other mammalian species, a wide range of specialists such as anthropologists, psychologists, animal behaviorists, evolutionary ecologists, economists and sociologists, have contributed to this volume, offering new insights into and a better understanding of one of the key areas of human society. Gillian Bentley is a biological anthropologist and reproductive ecologist and a Royal Society Research Fellow at University College London. Her prior work focused on explaining why different human populations occupying a range of environments have varying levels of reproductive hormones. She now directs projects that interface with reproduction and reproductive health, working with the migrant Bangladeshi community in London. Recent publications include Infertility in the Modern World: Present and Future Prospects, edited with C.G.N. Mascie-Taylor (Cambridge University Press, 2000). Ruth Mace is Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology at University College London. She works on the evolutionary ecology of social and subsistence systems. Particular interests include parental investment, mainly in African populations but also in the UK, and also macro-evolutionary studies on the evolution of cultural diversity. Recent publications include The Evolution of Cultural Diversity: A Phylogenetic Approach, edited with C. Holden and S. Shennan (UCL Press, 2005).
Text-Book of Meat Hygiene Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Text-Book of Meat Hygiene: With Special Consideration to Ante-Mortem and Post-Mortem Inspection of Food-Producing Animals Sanitary science and especially food hygiene have made considerable progress since the publication of the last edition of this Text-book of Meat Hygiene. Federal, state and municipal health authorities are cognizant of the importance of proper supervision of the food supply to the consuming public and they are ever more stringent in the enforcement of laws, rules and regulations which have been promulgated for guarding the safety of food. Until more recently the control of meat and meat food products was practically limited to inspection by the Federal authorities of establishments engaged in interstate business, leaving a large proportion of the population without proper supervision of their meat supply. In the general progress of food hygiene such shortcomings have been recognized and accordingly the supervision is being more and more extended to include the food supply of those who heretofore were not given such protection. The present Federal Meat Inspection system is unquestionably most complete and amendments which are issued from time to time are primarily designed to safeguard further the public health from the consumption of harmful meat food. In the present edition, therefore, it was deemed necessary to incorporate all additions and amendments for the purpose of furnishing those interested in meat hygiene an up-to-date treatise on the subject. Likewise in the discussion of diseases a number of changes have been made to conform with the latest scientific development of our knowledge on pathological conditions which might render meat and meat food products unfit for consumption. A new section has been included dealing entirely with the ductless glands. These glands in the last decade having gained in importance as the hormones extracted from them are being used very extensively in the treatment of many irregularities of the human body. Furthermore, it was deemed advisable to substitute for the equipment described in the original German publication for the rendering of edible and inedible products the modern American apparatus used for such purposes, as it is recognized that in recent years very important advances have been made in that particular phase of the industry.
