Comparative biomechanics : life's physical world [Monograph]only Chapter 1
Vogel, S. \ 2003
biophysics - biomechanics - movement - locomotion - flight - swimming - motility - biology - textbooks

The author lays out the key concepts of biomechanics using examples drawn from throughout the plant and animal kingdoms. The book covers both major subfields of biomechanics: fluid and solid mechanics. The author explains how biomechanics makes use of models and methods drawn from physics and mechanical engineering to investigate a wide range of general questions--from how animals swim and fly and the modes of terrestrial locomotion to the way organisms respond to wind and water currents and the operation of circulatory and suspension-feeding systems. He looks also at the relationships between the properties of biological materials--spider silk, jellyfish jelly, muscle, and more--and their various structural and functional roles.

Desmids of the Lowlands : Mesotaeniaceae and Desmidiaceae of the European Lowlands [Monograph]
Coesel, P.F.M. \ Meesters, J. \ cop. 2007
algae - plants - identification - flora - freshwater ecology - taxonomy - plant communities - netherlands - aquatic ecosystems

Desmids are an ecologically diverse group of green microalgae. Their cells show a beautiful symmetry, which distinguishes them from all other algal groups. Like many other algal species, desmids are important indicators of water quality. Their occurrence provides information on environmental conditions such as pH, conductivity and trophic state of a water body. Using desmid species in environmental studies calls for reliable identification. KNNV Publishing now presents a comprehensive guide that addresses this need: Desmids of the Lowlands – Mesotaeniaceae and Desmidiaceae of the European Lowlands. This helpful and detailed guide aims to represent all desmid taxa known from the Netherlands and adjacent lowland areas. Practical identification keys and illustrations are complemented with useful information on classification, morphology and reproduction, and ecology and distribution. The guide covers over 500 species and more than 150 additional varieties. Since most species are cosmopolitan, it may also be of use outside of this geographical region. Desmids of the Lowlands includes a CD-rom, which offers general information on desmid biology as well as a selection of species that are discussed in more detail. Ecological data, both on separate species and desmid communities, enable a characterisation of sampled habitats. A digital calculation method for the assessment of desmid-related conservation value is also included

Functional anatomy of the vertebrates : an evolutionary perspective [Monograph] - 3rd edTable of contents
Liem, K.F. \ cop. 2001
vertebrates - animal anatomy - morphology - evolution - phylogeny - textbooks

This book introduces students to the groups of vertebrates and explores the anatomical evolution of vertebrates within the context of the functional interrelationships of organs and the changing environments to which vertebrates have adapted. The text contains all of the material taught in classic comparative anatomy courses, but integrates this material with current research in functional anatomy. This integration adds a new dimension to our understanding of structure and helps students understand the evolution of vertebrates.

Aanleiding voor de elfde druk de Nederlandstalige editie van 'Basic Histology' vormden de ontwikkelingen in de moleculaire biologie en de (pre-)klinische wetenschappen. Er is gestreefd naar een goede aansluiting met deze wetenschappen. Daarnaast zijn de nummering, de labeling en de onderschriften van de vele kleurenillustraties nog eens onder de loep genomen. Veel aandacht is besteed aan de relatie tussen structuur en functie.

Human physiology [Monograph] - 11th edCompanion website
Fox, S.I. \ cop. 2009
physiology - muscle physiology - metabolism - respiratory system - immunology - reproduction

The beginning chapters introduce basic chemical and biological concepts to provide students with the framework they need to comprehend physiological principles. The chapters that follow promote conceptual understanding rather than rote memorization of facts. Health applications are included throughout the book to heighten interest, deepen understanding of physiological concepts, and help students relate the material to their individual career goals.
