Symposia of the Society for the Study of Human Biology, Volume VI: Teaching and Research in Human Biology covers the proceedings of the 1964 Symposium on Teaching and Research in Human Biology, held at the Anatomy Department of University College, London. This book is composed of eight chapters, and starts with an overview of the development and scope of human biology, with an emphasis of its benefit as a part of education at various levels. The subsequent chapters survey the determining factors for the inclusion of human biology at one level or another in the school curricula. This inclusion entails the incorporation of human biology into the curricula of teacher training colleges and into those of university departments of education. The discussion then shifts to the inclusion of human biology course in teaching general biology, medical education, and postgraduate research. The final chapters examine the professional training given to human biologists. This book will prove useful to human biologists, physicians, teachers, and postgraduate students.

This comprehensive introduction to the field of human biology covers all the major areas of the field: genetic variation, variation related to climate, infectious and non-infectious diseases, aging, growth, nutrition, and demography. Written by four expert authors working in close collaboration, this second edition has been thoroughly updated to provide undergraduate and graduate students with two new chapters: one on race and culture and their ties to human biology, and the other a concluding summary chapter highlighting the integration and intersection of the topics covered in the book.

An Introduction to Social Biology examines the application of biological principles in order to live a satisfactorily life. This book contains 14 chapters that discuss certain aspects of politics, theology, morality, and philosophy. The first chapters address the properties of living things and some paleontological evidence of evolution. Other chapters deal with the relationship between man and evolution; behavior of man as an animal; process of human and animal reproduction; definition of the theory of inheritance; relationship between agglutinins and agglutinogens; effects of mixing a donor’s blood and the receiver’s serum; and development of a fetus. These topics are followed by discussion of the social hygiene and the history and developments in medicine. An analysis of the diagnostic devices and techniques employed in the middle age is provided. The last chapters explore the quality and characteristics of food and beverages, as well as the social life among animals. The book can provide useful information to the biologists, students, and researchers.

The present volume is one of a series concerned with topics considered to be of growing interest to those whose ultimate aim is the understanding of the nutrition of man. Volumes on Sweetness, Calcium in Human Biology and Sucrose: Nutritional and Safety Aspects, have already been published, and another, on Dietary Starches and Sugars in Man: A Comparison, is in preparation. Written for workers in the nutritional and allied sciences rather than for the specialist, they aim to fill the gap between the textbook on the one hand and the many publications addressed to the expert on the other. The target readership spans medicine, nutrition and the biological sciences generally and includes those in the food, chemical and allied industries who need to take account of advances in these fields relevant to their products. Funded by industry but with an independent status, the Inter national Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) is a non-profit organization founded to deal objectively with the numerous health and safety issues that today concern industry internationally. ILSI sponsors scientific research, organizes conferences and publishes monographs relative to these problems. London Ian Macdonald March 1988 Series Editor Preface This volume has been prepared at a time when interest in both the biological roles of zinc and its nutritional significance is growing rapidly.

Inequalities play an important role in almost all branches of mathematics as well as in other areas of science and engineering. This book surveys the present state of the theory of weighted integral inequalities of Hardy type, including modifications concerning Hardy-Steklov operators, and some basic results about Hardy type inequalities and their limit (Carleman-Knopp type) inequalities. It also describes some rather new fields such as higher order and fractional order Hardy type inequalities and integral inequalities on the cone of monotone functions together with some applications and open problems. The book can serve as a reference and a source of inspiration for researchers working in these and related areas, but could also be used for advanced graduate courses.

Wide-ranging and inclusive, this text provides an invaluable review of an expansive selection of topics in human evolution, variation and adaptability for professionals and students in biological anthropology, evolutionary biology, medical sciences and psychology. The chapters are organized around four broad themes, with sections devoted to phenotypic and genetic variation within and between human populations, reproductive physiology and behavior, growth and development, and human health from evolutionary and ecological perspectives. An introductory section provides readers with the historical, theoretical and methodological foundations needed to understand the more complex ideas presented later. Two hundred discussion questions provide starting points for class debate and assignments to test student understanding.
