Polluted rain by Taft Yutaka Toribara( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the twelfth in a series of conferences on environmental toxicity sponsored by the Department of Radiation Biology and Bio physics. The topics selected are intended to be of timely interest with a focus somewhat different from those with with similar titles. I would like to share with you some of the thought which went into the development of this year's program. Everyone here is aware of the great amount of publicity being given to some phase of this year's topic of "Polluted Rain", but I wonder how many of the younger generation realize how the entire world got into this kind of predicament. I can remember as a young ster that precipitation from the sky in the form of rain or snow was considered one of the ultimates in purity. That was in the era when a small number of automobiles were in use and the airplane was more of a curiosity in the developmental stage than anything of commer cial significance. Many homes used iceboxes for refrigeration, and summer cooling was accomplished by electric fans by the more afflu ent families
The Dynamics of meristem cell populations by Morton W Miller( Book )

5 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These proceedings are composed of three parts: 1) the individual papers, 2) their discussions, and 3) a retrospective summation of the meeting's deliberations. If we were to suggest a starting place for reading it would probably be the summation -- it attempts to place the various papers and discussions into a general context and to point out relevant ideas of current knowledge and of potentially useful avenues for further research. The papers and discussions deal more specifically with the individual topics. It is hoped that the tone and tenor of the meeting are somewhat reflected in its proceedings. The emphasis today in biological research is quite "ecumenical" in outlook in that often techniques and conclusions from one discipline have relevance and applicability to another. For example, the elucidation of the DNA synthetic stage during interphase was first accomplished with botanical material; this technique has since had a broad and significant role in medical research. Also, the pioneering and now classical studies regarding the effects of ionizing radiation on plant chromosomes were, and still are, the foundation for studying mammalian chromosomes: it required only the discovery of a hypotonic medium to achieve spreading of them so that similar types of analyses were possible. Plants and plant cells have many unique features which allow them to be useful either for the study of specific botanical problems, or for studying broad biological principles. When dealing with a single broad topic it is often very useful for scientists to meet and discuss their work in a relatively closed seminar type of setting. This was the format chosen for this meeting. The goal of the meeting was to achieve a better understanding of meristem organization and function in relation to meristems per se or in relation to uses of meristems for elucidating fundamental biological principles (i.e., in those instances where the meristem is the "tool" and not necessarily the subject). Though the scientists present at these proceedings variously considered themselves as morphologists or as anatomists, as cell biologists or as radiation biologists, nevertheless, each of them utilized a plant meristem as a tool. What resulted was something akin to the viewing of a multifaceted crystal, with different "angles" giving different colors, different types of illumination. It was inevitable that conflicting opinions should exist; it is hoped that they are reflected in the contents of this volume. In a meeting where the expertise of the audience is no less than that of the speakers, the discussions are frequently as The papers in this volume constitute a broad, but well-balanced portrayal of meristems both as subjects and as tools. The papers contain comprehensive coverage of many new and important developments with a bounty of new data and formulations. The discussions following each paper, and the conference summation, are in some fashion further amplification, further integration, and further interrogation of the information "bits" contained in the papers. Clearly, plant meristems have been and will continue to be useful vehicles for a variety of research endeavors. This assessment of meristems from a variety of viewpoints hopefully achieves a greater understanding of meristem function.valuable as the papers themselves
Environmental pollutants : detection and measurement by Taft Yutaka Toribara( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principal emphasis of the Department of Radiation Biology and Biophysics is on biological problems. Techniques for measuring are considered very necessary but the development of them is usual ly left to someone else. Therefore it is a little unusual for the department to sponsor a conference which is devoted mostly to methodology. Environmental Pollution is a very popular topic now, and one notices that there are a number of scientific conferences devoted to the topic. Furthermore, part of every conference is devoted to measurements of pollutants. So the question becomes one of what should be different about our conference. To start with there are two unique features here: The first is the limited attendance which should provide more meaningful discussion; the second is the availability to the world of all the information in book form after the conference. We gave considerable thought to the contents of the conference which would take advantage of the unique features. Therefore, we decided to look to the future and present material here that is not in routine use. The search for pollutants has just begun, and their presence cannot be established without some means of detection. Many substances are not known to be toxic be cause no one has studied them. The necessary information can only be obtained if techniques for detection and measurement are avail able

Assessment of airborne particles; fundamentals, applications, and implications to inhalation toxicity by Thomas T Mercer( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concern over chemical and radioactive particulate matter in industry and over rapidly increasing air pollution has stimulated research both on the properties of airborne particles and methods for assessing them and on their biological effects following inhalation. The Third Rochester International Conference on Environmental Toxicity was, therefore, designed to bring together the latest information in this field, to stimulate additional research on the relationship between aerosol properties and toxicity, and to provide information for more efficient planning of future research. Thirty-four scientists contributed to the conference proceedings through sessions on: (1) aerosol fundamentals, (2) aerosol production and measurement, (3) size analysis and shape factors, (4) disposition of inhaled aerosols, and (5) assessment of hazardous aerosols. Each presentation includes an abstract of the information, the full report, statistical and diagramatic data, bibliographic references, and resulting discussion. Subject-author indexes are compiled.
