"The old order changeth, yielding place to new. " When Tennyson wrote this, he was unfamiliar with the pace of modem science else he would have said the new is displaced by the newer. When Gilbert and I gathered the papers for the first edition of this overview of metamorphosis, we aimed to provide a broad basis upon which the experimental analysis of the developmental changes called metamorphosis could proceed. We were both aware then that with the new techniques of biochemistry and with the revolutionary breakthrough to the nature of the gene, countless new possibilities were being opened for the exploration of the molecular basis of development. The resources offered by metamorphic changes offered unique opportunities to trace the path from gene to phenotype. Our expectations were high. I visited Larry Gilbert and Earl Frieden in their laboratories and saw with envy how far advanced they were then in the use of molecular methods of analysis. I had started on a different approach to develop an in vitro test for thyroid action on amphibian tissue. But circumstances limited my own progress to the initial delim itation of the technical possibilities of the in vitro system. Only from the sidelines could I watch the steady if slow progress of biology in penetrating the maze of molecular events by which animal tissues re spond to hormonal and other developmental factors.

This book is the first in a projected series on Evolutionary Cell Biology, the intent of which is to demonstrate the essential role of cellular mechanisms in transforming the genotype into the phenotype by transforming gene activity into evolutionary change in morphology. This book —Cells in Evolutionary Biology — evaluates the evolution of cells themselves and the role cells have been viewed to play as agents of change at other levels of biological organization. Chapters explore Darwin’s use of cells in his theory of evolution and how Weismann’s theory of the separation of germ plasm from body cells brought cells to center stage in understanding how acquired changes to cells within generations are not passed on to future generations. The study of evolution through the analysis of cell lineages during embryonic development dominated evolutionary cell biology until usurped by the switch to genes as the agents of heredity in the first decades of the 20th century. Discovery that cells exchanged organelles via symbiosis led to a fundamental reevaluation of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and to a reorganizations of the Tree of Life. Identification of cellular signaling centers, of mechanisms responsible for cellular patterning, and of cell behavior and cellular condensations as mediating the plasticity that enables phenotypic change during evolution, provided powerful new synergies between cell biology and evolutionary theory and the basis for Evolutionary Cell Biology. Key Selling Features: Summarizes the long history of the essential role of cells in evolutionary change. Demonstrates that cellular processes transform genetic change into phenotypic change in development and in evolution. Documents the evidence that cells provide the missing mechanistic link between the genotype and the phenotype in evolutionary theory. Illustrates the necessity of integrating cell biology into evolutionary theory.

How does one make decisions today about in vitro fertilization, abortion, egg freezing, surrogacy, and other matters of reproduction? This book provides the intellectual and emotional intelligence to help individuals make informed choices amid misinformation and competing claims. Scott Gilbert and Clara Pinto-Correia speak to the couple trying to become pregnant, the woman contemplating an abortion, and the student searching for sound information about human sex and reproduction. Their book is an enlightening read for men as well as for women, describing in clear terms how babies come into existence through both natural and assisted reproductive pathways. They update “the talk” for the twenty-first century: the birds, the bees, and the Petri dishes. Fear, Wonder, and Science in the New Age of Reproductive Biotechnology first covers the most recent and well-grounded scientific conclusions about fertilization and early human embryology. It then discusses the reasons why some of the major forms of assisted reproductive technologies were invented, how they are used, and what they can and cannot accomplish. Most important, the authors explore the emotional side of using these technologies, focusing on those who have emptied their emotions and bank accounts in a valiant effort to conceive a child. This work of science and human biology is informed by a moral concern for our common humanity.

The best edition yet of the landmark text in medical toxicology A Doody’s Core Title for 2019! Covering every aspect of poison management, this indispensable case-based resource has been thoroughly refreshed to deliver evidence-based principles viewed through the lens of an active bedside clinical practice. In no other reference will you find such a diverse roster of esteemed editors and authors who deliver expert insights into every type of toxicologic emergency, whether due to substance abuse or exposure to toxins. Fully referenced and supported by a cohesive organization and full-color format, Goldfrank’s begins with a historical perspective on medical toxicology principles and the general approach to the patient. It then progresses to the fundamental principles of medical toxicology, encompassing biochemical and molecular concepts; the effect of xenobiotics on vital organs and body systems; and toxicologic principles in special populations. The Eleventh Edition of Goldfrank’s Toxicologic Emergencies is the most rigorous volume to date, driven by a precise analysis of the latest medical literature and complex cases designed to facilitate differential diagnosis. New to this Edition: •Additional cases and “Special Considerations” chapters designed to enhance clinical decision-making and patient outcomes •New “Antidotes in Depth” provides timely, critical information on toxicologic treatment strategies •New content on toxicogenomics explores its increasingly important role in predictive toxicology •Chapter-ending bulleted summaries of key points •Updated coverage of synthetics such as “K2” •Revised chapters on medical, clinical, and chemical toxicology include updated insights on poison emergencies, treatment strategies, and risk assessment tools
