  3. The Routledge International Handbook of Biosocial Criminology

    Edited by Matt DeLisi, Michael G Vaughn

    Series: Routledge International Handbooks

    Biosocial criminology is an interdisciplinary field that aims to explain crime and antisocial behavior by exploring both biological factors and environmental factors. Since the mapping of the human genome, scientists have been able to study the biosocial causes of human behaviour with the greatest...

  4. Mechanobiology of the Endothelium

    Edited by Helim Aranda-Espinoza

    The endothelium is an excellent example of where biology meets physics and engineering. It must convert mechanical forces into chemical signals to maintain homeostasis. It also controls the immune response, drug delivery through the vasculature, and cancer metastasis. Basic understanding of these...

  5. Immunobiology of the Shark

    Edited by Sylvia L. Smith, Robert B. Sim, Martin F. Flajnik

    Immunity studies in sharks over the past three decades have produced some remarkable discoveries. If one message rings true, it is that alternative animal model systems, such as sharks and their relatives, have contributed very substantially to a better understanding of the development evolution of...

  7. Marine Biodiversity, Climatic Variability and Global Change

    By Grégory Beaugrand

    Series: Earthscan Oceans

    Biodiversity loss in terrestrial environments associated with human activities has been appreciated as a major issue for some years now.

  8. Genetic Discrimination

    Transatlantic Perspectives on the Case for a European Level Legal Response

    Edited by Gerard Quinn, Aisling de Paor, Peter Blanck

    As genetic technologies advance, genetic testing may well offer the prospect of detecting the onset of future disabilities. Some research also forwards that certain behavioural profiles may have a strong genetic basis, such as the determination to succeed, or the propensity for risk-taking. As this...
