              You know how it is when you go under. The jab, the countdown, the- -and then you wake. This book is about what happens in between. Until a hundred and seventy years ago many people chose death over the ordeal of surgery. Now hundreds of thousands undergo operations every day. Ana...esthesia has made it possible. But how much do we really know about what happens to us on the operating table? Can we hear what's going on around us? Is pain still pain if we are not awake to feel it, or don't remember it afterwards? How does the unconscious mind deal with the body's experience of being cut open and ransacked? And how can we help ourselves through it? Haunting, lyrical, sometimes shattering, Anaesthesia leavens science with personal experience to bring an intensely human curiosity to the unknowable realm beyond consciousness.

              Healing Plants of Nigeria: Ethnomedicine and Therapeutic Applications offers comprehensive information on the use of herbal medicines in West Africa. Combining an evidence-based, ethnobotanical perspective with a pharmacological and pharmaceutical approach to phytomedicine, the b...ook bridges the gap between the study of herbal plants' pharmacological properties and compounds for the development of clinical drugs and community-oriented approaches emphasizing local use. It demonstrates how the framework of African traditional medicine can be preserved in a contemporary clinical context. The book outlines history and beliefs surrounding the use of herbs traditionally used by the local population alongside their application in contemporary phytotherapy in Nigeria and West Africa. It features a critical assessment of the scientific rationale of these plants' use in ethnomedicine and offers a composite catalogue of phytotherapeutic and wellness agents, detailing the safety profile, efficacy, and scientific integrity of plants used to treat diseases and optimize health. Features: * An ethnobatonical survey containing over 200 full color photographs of Nigerian and West African plants. * A unique combination of ethnobotany and pharmacognosy, bridging the divide between pharmaceutical and community-oriented approaches in herbal medicine research. * Contextual discussion of therapeutic potentials of Nigerian herbal medicine. * Offers a template which can be used to separate the superstitious aspects of ethnomedicine from culturally inherited deposits of knowledge. A handbook for herbal and natural medicine practitioners, the book is aimed at African thinkers, scientists, healthcare providers and students of pharmacology and ethnomedicine.

              After successful launching of first and second editions of Biotechnology Fundamentals, we thought let us find out the feedbacks from our esteemed readers, faculty members, and students about their experiences and after receiving their suggestions and recommendation we thought it ...would be great idea to write 3rd edition of the book. Being a teacher of biotechnology, I always wanted a book which covers all aspects of biotechnology, right from basics to applied and industrial levels. In our previous editions, we have included all topics of biotechnology which are important and fundamentals for students learning. One of the important highlights of the book that it has dedicated chapter for the career aspects of biotechnology and you may agree that many students eager to know what are career prospects they have in biotechnology. There are a great number of textbooks available that deal with molecular biotechnology, microbial biotechnology, industrial biotechnology, agricultural biotechnology, medical biotechnology, or animal biotechnology independently; however, there is not a single book available that deals with all aspects of biotechnology in one book. Today the field of biotechnology is moving with lightening speed. It becomes very important to keep track of all those new information which affect the biotechnology field directly or indirectly. In this book, I have tried to include all the topics which are directly or indirectly related to fields of biotechnology. The book discusses both conventional and modern aspects of biotechnology with suitable examples and gives the impression that the field of biotechnology is there for ages with different names; you may call them plant breeding, cheese making, in vitro fertilization, alcohol fermentation is all the fruits of biotechnology. The primary aim of this book is to help the students to learn biotechnology with classical and modern approaches and take them from basic information to complex topics. There is a total of 2

              The taxonomy and systematics of European reptiles and amphibians have changed a lot in recent years, yet there is no modern, up-to-date field guide available that comprehensively covers all the species. The last illustrated field guide to European reptiles and amphibians was firs...t published 38 years ago, and remains oudated despite occasional reprints and new editions. This major new field guide addresses this deficiency. A total of 219 species are covered in detail, with a focus on identification and geographical variation; species texts also cover distribution, habitat and behaviour. Superb colour illustrations by talented artist Ilian Velikov depict every species and all major variations, and colour photographs are also included for most species. This groundbreaking new guide will become the definitive field reference for these two groups of animals. It includes: - Over 370 colour artworks and 200 colour photographs - 155 accurate and up-to-date distribution maps - Easy-to-use keys and tables to help with swift species identification

              Population Genomics With R presents a multidisciplinary approach to the analysis of population genomics. The methods treated cover a large number of topics from traditional population genetics to large-scale genomics with high-throughput sequencing data. Several dozen R packages ...are examined and integrated to provide a coherent software environment with a wide range of computational, statistical, and graphical tools. Small examples are used to illustrate the basics and published data are used as case studies. Readers are expected to have a basic knowledge of biology, genetics, and statistical inference methods. Graduate students and post-doctorate researchers will find resources to analyze their population genetic and genomic data as well as help them design new studies. The first four chapters review the basics of population genomics, data acquisition, and the use of R to store and manipulate genomic data. Chapter 5 treats the exploration of genomic data, an important issue when analysing large data sets. The other five chapters cover linkage disequilibrium, methods seeking structure in population genomic data including supervised and unsupervised methods, admixture, and an in-depth treatment of multivariate methods, analysis of geographical structure with advice on how to handle GIS data together with genomic data, methods to assess past demographic events, and the analysis of natural selection, a traditional issue in evolutionary biology that has known a revival with modern population genomic data. All chapters include exercises. Supplemental materials are available on-line (http://ape-package.ird.fr/PGR.html).

              Tumors/cancers are characterized by uncontrolled growths of abnormal cells that extend beyond their usual boundaries and disrupt the normal functions of affected organs and systems. While about 85% of tumors/cancers arise sporadically without family connection, 15% appear to resu...lt from inheritance of genetic mutations, some (5-10%) of which are responsible for causing tumor syndromes (or cancer susceptibility syndromes). In comparison with sporadic tumors/cancers, those associated with tumor syndromes (>300 described so far) tend to occur at a younger age, involve multiple organs and systems, produce multiple (often in a distinct spectrum) and bilateral lesions, associate with multiple hamartomatous, benign, or precursor lesions, locate in specific site, display unique syndromic features, and affect multiple members/generations of family. This book provides a state-of-art and authoritative coverage of nearly 100 tumor syndromes. Each chapter presents an overview of a particular tumor syndrome in relation to its biology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. With contributions from oncologists, clinicians and specialists, this book offers a useful reference for scholars and students of medicine, dentistry, pharmacology, nursing, public health and other biomedical disciplines. Key Features Reviews the biology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, and clinical features of tumor syndromes Contains up-to-date information on the diagnosis and treatment of tumor syndromes Includes expert coverage from leading oncologists and clinicians Related Titles J.
