Most widely held works by James Moriarty
Photosynthesis ( Visual )
12 editions published between 1984 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 201 libraries worldwide
Starting with the historic discoveries of Joseph Priestley, Jan Ingenhousz, and Jean Senebier, this miniseries examines the absorption of light by plants, and follows the energy pathways to the production of carbohydrates and other organic materials. Programs also develop the Calvin cycle, as it functions in carbon 3 and carbon 4 plants, and the remarkable fluid transport system that delivers water and nutrients throughout the plant structure.
Cellular respiration ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 201 libraries worldwide
Uses computer animation to clarify topics in biological respiration.
Tee off! : America's most challenging public golf courses by Jim Moriarty ( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 90 libraries worldwide
Protein the stuff of life ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 79 libraries worldwide
"This program examines varied protein compounds, their biological functions, the way they bind, and how organisms synthesize the complex chains of amino acids that make up proteins."
Ribosomal RNA the protein maker ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 74 libraries worldwide
"Ribosomal RNA and protein make up the ribosome, a complicated two-part machine that monitors the interaction between messenger RNA and transfer RNA. As explained in this program, the mutations that result from the faulty replication of a DNA code are usually harmful, but they are also believed to be the basis of evolution."
Transfer RNA the genetic messenger ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 72 libraries worldwide
"The functions of the three different types of RNA--messenger, transfer and ribosomal-- are explained. The transfer RNA acts as a vehicle for the amino acids, ferrying them to the ribosome, where they link up with the messenger RNA molecules, forming a chain that becomes a protein."
Organic evolution ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1986 and 2005 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
Traces the development of various theories of evolution. Begins with the biblical account of creation, then goes on to discuss Darwin, Mendel, the Hardy-Weinberg law, and more. Ties together the microscopic and macroscopic, genetics and heredity, cell reproduction, and breeding populations.
RNA synthesis : the genetic messenger ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
Every living species relies on the accuracy of DNA replication, and RNA, or ribonucleic acid, plays an essential role in this process. The information of the DNA strand is carried by the messener RNA to the ribosome, the site of protein manufacture.
Ajax ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 55 libraries worldwide
A new translation for the stage of Sophocles earliest surviving play, Ajax, in which a warrior hero of the Greek army at Troy dies in dishonor.
DNA replication : the repeating formula ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 54 libraries worldwide
The synthesis of a DNA molecule is shown step by step as the fertilization of the egg starts the process of cell division that grows into the living organism. The ability of DNA to replicate itself during the process of cell division enables the blueprints for creating proteins to be passed on.
C 3 and C 4 plants ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 48 libraries worldwide
This program explores the ability of plants to utilize atmospheric carbon dioxide.
DNA : the molecule of heredity ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 47 libraries worldwide
The synthesis of protein begins with the DNA molecule. Found in the nucleus of all cells, DNA molecules are grouped in complex structures called chromosomes. The two outer rails of a DNA molecule are coiled in a double helix: between these two rails, two kinds of molecules link to form endless possible sequences. The order of these sequences constitutes the genetic code for the construction of protein.
The Light reaction ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 42 libraries worldwide
The program follows electrons through the P680 and P700 photosystems, and eventually, out into the stroma, where they are used in the dark reaction.
The meiotic mix ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1986 and 1992 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
Explains the difference between mitosis and meiosis. Shows how variations are generated by chromosomes matching during meiosis.
The Dark reaction ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
This program shows the step-by-step developments in the dark reaction, including the processes in the Calvin cycle and the production of glucose and starch.
Sharing carbon ( Visual )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 37 libraries worldwide
Shows how movement of carbon and other elements throughout the global biosphere supports life.
Ozone ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 35 libraries worldwide
Explains the protective attributes of the ozone layer as well as the chemistry of destruction of the layer caused by CFC's in the atmosphere.
Absorbing the light ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 34 libraries worldwide
This program explores the stages of photosynthesis at the cellular level.
Planet under pressure geochemistry and the fate of the earth ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Explores the interrelationship of air, water, soil, and living organisms, tracing the paths of life sustaining chemicals that connect them. Examines global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, and soil exhaustion.
Seeing the light ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 31 libraries worldwide
This program offers an introduction to the process of photosynthesis through the historical discoveries of Joseph Priestley, Jan Ingenhousz, and Jean Senebier.
