Diet, nutrition, and health by K. K Carroll( )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 1,846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does diet influence heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and kidney disease? What is its role in hypertension and obesity? Can an altered diet reduce risk of disease, make people healthier, and contribute to longer life expectancy? Can we use the knowledge we have more effectively? What are the economic and social implications of changing the diets of entire populations? Can anything be learned from the history of public health and disease patterns? These and other questions were considered by experts from around the world at a symposium co-sponsored by the Royal Society of Canada and the Food and Nutrition Board of the US National Academy of Sciences. Diet, Nutrition, and Health reports the results of these discussions
Current perspectives on nutrition and health by K. K Carroll( )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 1,814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on health and nutrition confirms the significance of diet in maintaining health, reducing the risk of chronic disease, heart disease, cancer and obesity. Exploring developments in this field, the Royal Society of Canada sponsored a symposium in 1996. This text is based on that symposium
Challenging genetic determinism : new perspectives on the gene in its multiple environments by Royal Society of Canada( )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advances in genetic research have captured the attention of the media and the public through reports about genetically caused diseases and behaviours. However, all too often the coverage of scientists' innovations has implied that genetic factors alone are responsible for effects ranging from personality and sexual preferences to morbid obesity and intellectual disabilities. This book argues that hypotheses cannot be based solely on genetic factors but must take into account the context in which these factors occur. Reviewing a century of developments in understanding the interplay of genes and environments, contributors demonstrate the importance of considering contextual influences as well as genetic factors and provide a comprehensive method for understanding recent research findings. The compelling new findings presented here highlight how personality traits, complex diseases and behaviours, and social and ethical issues, are all related to the interaction of genes and the environment
Origin and evolution of the universe : evidence for design? by James Robson( )

17 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 1,731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does the universe have the character it has because of design? In this collection of essays first presented at a symposium sponsored by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research and the Royal Society of Canada, seventeen scientists and philosophers re-examine the "Argument by Design" in light of current scientific theories. Scientists in such diverse fields as cosmology, physics, geology, biology, and psychology provide syntheses of the state of their respective disciplines with regard to questions such as the origin or evolution of the universe and of life, the interaction of life and terrestrial environment, and verbal communication in prehumans. Contributions by philosophers cover such areas as arguments for as designer and the question of whether nature's laws and initial conditions could be viewed as "fine tuned" for the production of life. Many of the chapters demonstrate the awe-inspiring success of modern science in explaining the universe in terms of fairly straightforward natural laws, countering those versions of the design argument which try to find evidence of God's activities in the supposed failures of scientific laws to cover various phenomena. This book not only raises important questions about our understanding of the world and its origins abut also provides a fascinating view of the different perspectives on this topic
Review of the Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River studies by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1950s, the International Joint Commission (IJC) of Canada and the United States has issued water regulation and management plans for Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. Changes in recreational, environmental, navigational and other uses of the water system have prompted the IJC to consider replacing the current water regulation plan in operation for more than 40 years. IJC's goals for a replacement plan include sound scientific foundations, public participation, transparency in plan development and evaluation, and inclusion of environmental considerations. To help develop and select the new plan, the IJC supported a 5-year, $20 million Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River Study (LOSLR Study). The LOSLR Study uses models to compile and integrate data gathered from a series of commissioned studies of wetlands, species at risk, recreational boating, fisheries, coastal erosion and flooding, commercial navigation, hydropower, industrial, municipal and domestic water intakes, public information and education, and hydrologic modeling. This report reviews a portion of the study that focused on wetlands and species at risk and three of the models that were used. The report finds that the overall breadth of the LOSLR study is impressive, and commends the scale and inclusiveness of the studies and models. In terms of informing decision making, however, the reviewed studies and models show deficiencies when evaluated against ten evaluation criteria, including treatment of uncertainty, quality control/quality assurance, thorough documentation, and empirical foundations. Among the report's recommendations is a need for more thorough documentation of study methods and findings, stronger and more consistent quality control, and more attention to how uncertainty should be addressed to better inform decision making. This NRC study was conducted in collaboration with the Royal Society of Canada

The Tectonics of the Canadian Shield by Royal Society of Canada( Book )

8 editions published between 1962 and 2019 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, the third in a series on the Canadian Precambrian Shield presented by the Royal Society of Canada, was prepared by Fellows of the Geological Sciences Section, in response to their desire to bring up to date and to synthesize information available on the structures present in the Shield. It is a contribution to the basic understanding of the significant geological structures in the Canadian Shield. A knowledge of these features is valuable for long-range exploration and development of the extensive one deposits of gold, uranium, nickel, copper, lead, zinc, and other metals found in the Shield. It also has an importance in relations to oil structures found in rocks younger than the Precambrian, bordering the Shield. This work should be of great interest to those wishing to have a modern interpretation of Precambrian structures, especially the Canadian rocks, and to those concerned with the development of the Canadian North. It will be of special interest to practising geologists in government or industry, to university departments of geology, and to geological consultants

Structures sociales du Canada francais : études de membraes de la Section I de la Société royale du Canada by Royal Society of Canada( Book )

18 editions published in 1966 in French and English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Canada français a été observé par des auteurs comme Thoreau et Tocqueville, et a été étudié par les historiens et les sociologues d'aujourd'hui, surtout par les Canadians français eux-mêmes. Ces études, écrites au moment où se déroule la "révolution tranquille" du Québec, veulent faire miqux connaître les institutions qui y subissent des transformations rapides et profondes. La diversité des textes -- tous les auteurs n'appartiennent pas à la même école de pensée -- est en elle-même significative: elle soulingne que le caractère longtemps monolithique de la pensée canadienne-française est en voie de disparaître, s'il n'est pas déjà disparu. Les textes du volume sont précédés d'une introduction générale par Jean-Charles Falardeau. Il s'y pose des questions au sujet des institutions: quelles ont été les institutions dominantes de la société canadienne-française, et pourquoi ? Quelles sont celles qui ont fait défaut, et pourquoi ? Quels groupes sociaux one été associés à telles institutions caractéristiques ? Quelles conceptions en ont-ils proposées, à quelles fins les ont-ils fait servir ? Ces interrogations permettent de mettre en relief, comme il dit, "certaines causes de nos retards et de nos élans, les décalages entre notre vie politique et notre vie culturelle, les relations et les conflits entre ceux qui ont constitué les élites de notre société." Viennent ensuite des études précises et détaillées de quelques aspects de l'organisation sociale du Canada français par cinq érudits distingués, soit Maurice Lebel ("Les cadres religieux"), Louis-Philippe Audet ("Les cadres scolaires"), Jean-Charles Bon-enfant ("Les cadres politiques"), Louis Baudoin ("Les cadres juridiques"), et Gérard Parizeau ("Les cadres économiques")
The Grenville problem by Royal Society of Canada( Book )

5 editions published between 1956 and 1995 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE GRENVILLE SUBPROVINCE forms an important part of the Precambrian Shield in eastern Canada. It covers an area 150 to 200 miles wide extending along the southern border of the Shield from Lake Huron to the Labrador coast and projects into the Adirondack region of the United States. This vast expanse of territory is distinguished from the remainder of the Shield by the presence of extensive areas of crystalline limestone intermingled with a variety of gneisses and highly metamorphosed sedimentary and volcanic rocks. Because of the great geological complexity and rock alteration the Grenville subprovince presents a variety of problems that have always puzzled and intrigued geologists. A century of investigation has produced much factual information about the distribution of rock types, their relationships, alterations, structure, age, and valuable mineral content. This in turn has led to much speculation as to their mode of origin and relationship to adjacent Precambrian units. Although the Grenville subprovince has not been a prolific source of mineral production when compared with some other major subdivisions of the Shield, it contains the greatest variety of mineral species, and, in recent years, important deposits of iron ore, lead and zinc, uranium, and industrial minerals have been developed. This encouragement has greatly increased the incentive for mineral exploration throughout the whole region. The Grenville subprovince is now undergoing the greatest period of mineral search and development in its entire history. With these facts in mind, the officers of Section IV (Geology and Allied Sciences) of the Royal Society of Canada decided that it was an opportune time to discuss all aspects of Grenville geology. Accordingly, a symposium on "The Grenville Problem" was arranged for the annual meeting of the Society at Toronto in June, 1955. Geologists with considerable experience in all aspects of Grenville geology were invited to contribute papers and take part in the discussions. They represented mining companies, government surveys, and universities. Thirteen papers were presented and discussed as fully as time would permit. It was felt that this information should be made available to a wider audience, and eventually, through the joint efforts of the Royal Society of Canada and the University of Toronto Press, several of the papers presented on that occasion were assembled in this publication. It is a sampling of areas and topics that are of current interest. It discusses a wide variety of subjects and questions that have come to the fore as geologists delve deeper into the mysteries of the Grenville rocks. This is the first Canadian attempt to collect some of the available information and ideas on a difficult and fascinating subject. It is hoped, however, that it will serve a useful purpose and inspire further study and discussions on a geological unit that has a very considerable future potential in the Canadian mineral economy
