Molecular approaches to ecology by Marcel Florkin( Book )

20 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Molecular Approaches to Ecology presents studies on the molecular aspects underlying adaptation along with discussions of the concept of molecular adaptation. A proper approach to the study of adaptation must start from the consideration of the relation organism-environment at the level of the community or of the organism, and progressively proceed from this organismic starting point to the underlying molecular aspects. Examples are presented showing that the adaptation to a given environment cannot be traced down to a single molecular mechanism. The book contains nine chapters and begins wi
Anti-chance : a reply to Monod's chance and necessity by Ernest Schoffeniels( Book )

39 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anti-Chance: A Reply to Monod's Chance and Necessity is a critique of Jacques Monod's essay on the natural philosophy of modern biology. It explores the concepts of chance and necessity, central themes of Monod's work, and specifically whether life is the result of coincidence of diverse independent chains of causality or, on the contrary, whether it obeys the more fundamental concept of chance as proposed by the Danish School of physicists. Questions such as the chance or the inevitability of it all, the sites and sizes of the knowledge gaps and as to whether they will be filled with physics
Cellular aspects of membrane permeability by Ernest Schoffeniels( Book )

17 editions published between 1967 and 2017 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cellular Aspects of Membrane Permeability describes the state of knowledge on permeability problems and interprets experimental results within the framework of working hypotheses. The book discusses membrane permeability with some biochemical perspective presented to explain the origin and adaptations of animal life. The text explains the process and the driving forces affecting the permeability characteristics of the experimental object. It then discusses the distribution of ions and molecules between two phases separated by a living membrane. Then the text analyzes the chemical nature of the

Molecular basis and thermodynamics of bioelectrogenesis by Ernest Schoffeniels( Book )

9 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the fact that many years have elapsed since the first microcalorimetric measurements of an action potential were made, there is still among the research workers involved in the study of bioelectrogenesis a complete overlooking of the most fundamental principle governing any biological phenomenon at the molecular scale of dimension. This is surprising, the more so that the techniques of molecular biology are applied to characterize the proteins forming the ionic conducting sites in living membranes. For reasons that are still obscure to us the molecular aspects of bioelectrogenesis are completely out of the scope of the dynamic aspects of biochemistry. Even if it is sometimes recognized that an action potential is a free energy-consuming, entropy-producing process, the next question that should reasonably arise is never taken into consideration. There is indeed a complete evasion of the problem of biochemical energy coupling thus reducing the bioelectrogenesis to only physical interactions of membrane proteins with the electric field: the inbuilt postulate is that no molecular transformations, in the chemical sense, could be involved
