Ecology and physiology of parasites; a symposium held at University of Toronto 19 and 20 February 1970( Book )

6 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasing wisdom and ingenuity are required if we are to master our environment and cope with the myriad of organisms that affect our existence. Not the least of these organisms are the parasites and pathogens which can be found in all animals. The ecological implications of parasitism are obvious, and the interrelationships among different organisms within the same host are fascinating, but more knowledge and understanding are needed. The symposium are held to stimulate discussion of the significance of ecological problems presented by parasites and to develop means of attacking some of these problems. The diversity of parasitism from protozoa to anthropods was emphasized and the speakers and topics were selected to interest those in various biological disciplines and professions. Organized by the Department of Parasitology in the School of Hygiene of the University of Toronto, and held at Toronto in February 1970, the symposium was an unqualified success. The enthusiastic interest, indicated by the attendance of over three hundred people from seven countries, and numerous requests for copies of the proceedings led to the publication in this volume of the twelve papers presented at the symposium. The opening remarks of the leader of the discussion which follow each paper have been included and a complete bibliography is provided for each topic. The contributors are leading specialists in their fields; their papers present the results of the most recent research and assemble and review the scattered literature on each topic. The text is illustrated throughout with diagrams and photographs. Parasitism and associated phenomena are excellent examples of problems requiring the interdisciplinary approach taken by the symposium. The results of such an approach are useful in a wide variety of disciplines: microbiology, invertebrate zoology, entomology, and tropical medicine, as well as parasitology

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Wellcome Library in London preserves one of the major collections in Europe of manuscripts, printed books and pictorial material relating to Asia. This is largely due to the enthusiasm and vision of the American-born pharmacist and philanthropist, Sir Henry Wellcome. Although celebrated as a library devoted to medical history and related topics, the Asian Collections document in text and illustration practically every area of human endeavour found among the many peoples and cultures of the East. The Wellcome Trust, an independent research-funding charity originating from Wellcome's will, supports the Library and its work today as an international resource for the history and understanding of medicine."--Jacket

Field trials of health interventions : a toolbox( )

in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before new interventions can be used in disease control programmes, it is essential that they are carefully evaluated in "field trials", which may be complex and expensive undertakings. Descriptions of the detailed procedures and methods used in trials that have been conducted in the past have generally not been published. As a consequence, those planning such trials have few guidelines available and little access to previously accumulated knowledge. In this book the practical issues of trial design and conduct are discussed fully and in sufficient detail for the text to be used as a "toolbox" by field investigators. The toolbox has now been extensively tested through use of the first two editions and this third edition is a comprehensive revision, incorporating the many developments that have taken place with respect to trials since 1996 and involving more than 30 contributors. Most of the chapters have been extensively revised and 7 new chapters have been added."--Open Textbook Library
Identity & identification by Hugh Aldersey-Williams( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Identity and Identification' is a challenging exploration of the philosophical, biological, historical and sociopolitical issues underlying our conception of self and identity. A unique feature of the book is its 16 in-depth interviews exploring the immediate social, cultural and political themes that shape contemporary identity issues. The interviewees include singer, songwriter and political campaigner Billy Bragg, scholar and writer Ziauddin Sardar, political exile Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, neuroscientist Paul Broks, geneticist Sir Alec Jeffreys, philosophers John Searle and A C Grayling, and transgender critic and writer Roz Kaveney. Each interviewee approaches the subject from a very personal and original perspective, shining light onto themes such as gender, minority politics, science, ideology, race and class, and these themes? relationship to who we are and how others define us. Featuring an impressive collection of writing sand stunning visual material, from diary extracts, newspaper cuttings, 19-century wood engravings and photographs to eccentric, fascinating artefacts and other paraphernalia, 'Identity and Identification' is an invaluable, timely contribution to the hotly debated issues of how we know who we are, how we are identified and how the two are related." -- Wellcome Collection website

Compassionate, dramatic, at times harrowing, at times funny, this is an original and richly-textured exploration of ageing, memory, innocence and ignorance, of an encounter between old and young, sharing a last moment at the edge of silence
