The Gestation of German Biology: Philosophy and Physiology from Stahl to Schelling

The author presents a different version of the emergence of the field of biology, taking on both Foucault's and Mayr's positions, and emphasizing the scientific progress throughout the eighteenth century that led to the recognition of the need for a special science.

Metacommunity Ecology

Metacommunity ecology links smaller-scale processes that have been the provenance of population and community ecology -- such as birth-death processes, species interactions, selection, and stochasticity -- with larger-scale issues such as dispersal and habitat heterogeneity. This book shows how environmental sorting, dispersal, ecological drift, and other processes influence metacommunity structures simultaneously.

The Biology of Lakes and Ponds

A concise but comprehensive introduction to the biology of standing waters (lakes and ponds). As with other books in the Biology of Habitats Series, the emphasis in this book is on the organisms that dominate freshwater environments. Management and conservation aspects are also considered.

Critical Theory and the Anthropology of Heritage Landscapes

Explores the sociopolitical contexts of heritage landscapes, paying special attention to sites with deep indigenous histories. Drawing on the emerging field of critical heritage theory and the concept of ""resource frontiers"", Melissa Baird shows how these landscapes are sites of power and control and are increasingly used in development and extractive projects.

Epigenetics and Systems Biology

This book breaks down the obstacles which exist between systems biology and epigenetics researchers due to information barriers and segmented research, giving real-life examples of successful combinations of systems biology and epigenetics experiments.
