Описание: This volume presents a collection of twenty-seven contributions, covering the whole of the research area in human growth and development. It is highly international in the provenance of both authors and subjects, from Kathmandu to Caracas, Oaxaca to Alice Springs. There are papers on the history of the study of human growth, on the modelling of individual growth curves, the construction of population growth reference curves, growth as a measure of population well-being, secular trend, and the much neglected subject of the relation between mental and physical development.

Описание: Growth, Development and Reproduction is a title in the new Cambridge Advanced Sciences series. It has been developed specifically for the new specifications for Advanced Level Biology for teaching from September 2000.
Growth, Development and Reproduction has been endorsed by OCR for use with the OCR Biology specification A. It provides full coverage of the Biology option module of the same name. In combination with other books in the series it provides full coverage of the Advanced Level specifications.
Learning objectives are clearly defined, so that students know exactly what they need to learn. Self-assessment questions (with answers) and exam-style end-of-chapter exercises offer excellent opportunities for independent study. Chapter introductions and summaries provide the basis for structured revision. Full-colour illustration and student-friendly design make the science accessible to all.
Описание: It is generally accepted that the earliest human ancestors grew more like apes than like humans today. If they did so, and we are now different, when, how and
why did our modern growth patterns evolve? This book focuses on species within the genus Homo to investigate the evolutionary origins of characteristic human patterns and rates of
craniofacial and postcranial growth and development, and to explore unique ontogenetic patterns within each fossil
species. Experts examine growth patterns found within available Plio-Pleistocene hominid samples, and analyse variation in ontogenetic patterns and rates of development in recent
modern humans in order to provide a comparative context for fossil hominid studies.
Presenting studies of some of the newest juvenile fossil specimens and information on
Homo antecessor, the newest species assigned to the genus, this book will provide a rich data source with which anthropologists and evolutionary biologists can address the questions

Описание: Human children grow at a uniquely slow pace by comparison with other mammals. When and where did this schedule evolve? Have technological advances, farming and cities had any effect upon it? Addressing these and other key questions in palaeoanthropology and bioarchaeology, Simon Hillson examines the unique role of teeth in preserving detailed microscopic records of development throughout childhood and into adulthood. The text critically reviews theory, assumptions, methods and literature, providing the dental histology background to anthropological studies of both growth rate and growth disruption. Chapters also examine existing studies of growth rate in the context of human evolution and primate development more generally, together with implications for life history. The final chapters consider how defects in the tooth development sequence shed light on the consequences of biological and social transitions, contributing to our understanding of the evolution of modern human development and cognition.
Описание: This textbook of human osteology focuses on both classroom and laboratory studies and field situations that physical anthropologists, archaeologists, and forensic pathologists routinely encounter. This should become the preferred text for human osteology courses.
Описание: This book is a collective effort on the part of researchers affiliated with the CERES Research School in Development Studies in the Netherlands to discuss a series of themes and concepts crucial to the overlapping fields of globalization and development research. While development in the course of the 1980s and 1990s was becoming hinged onto globalization, prior approaches to development were increasingly being criticized. An impasse was announced by various actors in the field, and renewed reflection on some of the basic concepts and methods became inevitable. Much of the initial rethinking went under the sign of postmodernism and tended to give priority to micro- and actor-centered research. Later, with the emerging discussion on globalization, new macro dimensions were added, and efforts were launched to articulate local/global approaches. This book discusses a set of key themes and concepts that reflect these intellectual and historical developments. Used by politicians and researchers, they reflect the continuing concern about inequality and poverty by students and practitioners of development, and contain crucial perspectives for a critical engagement of current globalization processes and their consequences. The chapters in this book examine the notions and issues of globalization, livelihood, identity, governance, transnationalism, and knowledge.
Описание: "Double Fertilization" provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of this central event in the reproduction and development of flowering plants. Written by Val Raghavan, The Ohio State University, an acknowledged expert in plant developmental biology, the book vividly describes the molecular and cellular steps of the unique and complex fertilization process that culminates in the formation of embryo and endosperm, focusing on the latest results from the model plant Arabidopsis. The text is complemented by excellent illustrations, including 16 color plates.Since embryo and endosperm constitute the edible parts of many seeds and grains widely used in human and animal nutrition, an understanding of the fertilization process has great relevance for genetic engineering aimed at improving the nutritional quality of crop plants. This book is ideally suited to researchers and graduate students seeking a coherent view of current perspectives on embryogenesis and endosperm development in flowering plants.
