Thinking Like a Phage: The Genius of the Viruses That Infect Bacteria and Archaea

Merry Youle

Thinking Like a Phage: The Genius of the Viruses That Infect Bacteria and Archaea by Merry Youle

It isn't easy to be a phage. First, what is a phage? A phage is a virus that infects Bacteria. To succeed, a phage must encounter, recognize, and enter a particular type of bacterial cell, then coerce it to make more phages rather than more cells. Of course, the cell resists this hostile takeover in numerous ways, all of which the successful phage overcomes. The triumphant phage then proceeds with its replicative business. In this engaging book, Merry Youle relates some of the tactics used by 21 pheatured phages to outwit their host and successfully maintain their own lineage generation after...

Environmental Hazards Methodologies for Risk Assessment and Management

Nicolas R. Dalezios

Environmental Hazards Methodologies for Risk Assessment and Management by Nicolas R. DaleziosFrom the beginning of 21st century, there has been an awareness of risk in the environment along with a growing concern for the continuing potential damage caused by hazards. In order to ensure environmental sustainability, a better understanding of natural disasters and their impacts is essential.   It has been recognized that a holistic and integrated approach to environmental hazards needs to be attempted using common methodologies, such as risk analysis, which involves risk management and risk assessment. Indeed, risk management means reducing the threats posed by known hazards, whereas...

A Very Short Tour of the Mind: 21 Short Walks Around the Human Brain

Michael Corballis

A Very Short Tour of the Mind: 21 Short Walks Around the Human Brain by Michael Corballis

Why do we remember faces but not names? If your brain were cut in half would you suffer more than a splitting headache?

How does your dog remember where it buried its bone but you can't find your keys? And do we really only use ten percent of our brains? In A Very Short Tour of the Mind, Michael C. Corballis answers these questions and more. The human mind is arguably the most complex organ in the universe.

Modern computers might be faster, and whales might have larger brains, but neither can match the sheer intellect or capacity for creativity that we humans enjoy. In this gem of a book, Corballis...
