The Genome of Drosophila Melanogaster by Dan L. Lindsley,Georgianna G. Zimm

By Dan L. Lindsley,Georgianna G. Zimm

devoted to the reminiscence of George Lefevre in attractiveness of his exhaustive cytogenetic research of the X chromosome, The Genome of Drosophila melanogaster is the entire compendium of what's recognized in regards to the genes and chromosomes of this regular version organism. the quantity is an updated revision of Lindsley and Grell's 1968 paintings, Genetic diversifications of Drosophila melanogaster. the recent variation includes whole descriptions of standard and mutant genes together with phenotypic, cytological, molecular, and bibliographic details. additionally, it describes millions of recorded chromosome rearrangements utilized in examine on Drosophila. This instruction manual and its accompanying polytene chromosome maps, are sturdily sure into the publication as foldouts and on hand as a separate set, are crucial learn instruments for the Drosophila community.

  • Describes phenotype, cytology, and molecular biology of all recorded genes of Drosophila melanogaster, plus references to the literature
  • Describes basic chromosome supplement, unique chromosome constructs, transposable components, departures from diploidy, satellite tv for pc sequences, and nonchromosomal inheritance
  • Describes all recorded chromosome rearrangements of Drosophila melanogaster as of the tip of 1989 includes the cytogenetic map of all genes as of mid-1991
  • Contains the unique polytene maps of C.B. Bridges, plus G. Lefevre's photographic equivalents, and the unique maps of the chromosome palms produced through C.B. and P.M. Bridges
  • All maps are reprinted as top of the range foldouts sturdily sure into the volume
  • Maps can also be bought individually in an eight-map packet, for laboratory and pupil use

The Quest for the Perfect Hive: A History of Innovation in Bee Culture

Beekeeping is a sixteen-billion-dollar-a-year enterprise. however the helpful honey bee now faces critical threats from illnesses, mites, insecticides, and overwork, let alone the mysterious Colony cave in illness, which factors possible fit bees to desert their hives en masse, by no means to come. within the Quest for the ideal Hive, entomologist Gene Kritsky bargains a concise, superbly illustrated heritage of beekeeping, tracing the evolution of hive layout from historic Egypt to the current.

Insects and Wildlife: Arthropods and their Relationships with Wild Vertebrate Animals

Bugs and flora and fauna: Arthropods and their Relationships with Wild Vertebrate Animals offers a complete evaluation of the interrelationships of bugs and natural world. It serves as an creation to bugs and different arthropods for natural world administration and different vertebrate biology scholars, and emphasizes the significance of bugs to wild vertebrate animals.

Swarm Intelligence: From Natural to Artificial Systems (Santa Fe Institute Studies on the Sciences of Complexity)

Social insects--ants, bees, termites, and wasps--can be seen as robust problem-solving platforms with refined collective intelligence. Composed of straightforward interacting brokers, this intelligence lies within the networks of interactions between contributors and among contributors and the surroundings. a desirable topic, social bugs also are a strong metaphor for man made intelligence, and the issues they solve--finding nutrition, dividing exertions between nestmates, development nests, responding to exterior challenges--have vital opposite numbers in engineering and machine technology.

Ecology, Systematics, and the Natural History of Predaceous Diving Beetles (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae)

Predaceous diving beetles (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae) represent one of many biggest households of freshwater bugs (~ 4,200 species). even if dytiscid adults and larvae are ubiquitous all through a number of aquatic habitats and are major predators on different aquatic invertebrates and vertebrates, there are not any compilations that experience fascinated with summarizing the information in their ecology, systematics, and biology.
