  • Biological inorganic chemistry : a new introduction to molecular structure and function / Robert R. Crichton
    QP531

    Biological Inorganic Chemistry: A New Introduction to Molecular Structure and Function, Third Edition, provides a comprehensive discussion of the biochemical aspects of metals in living systems. The fascinating world of the role of metals in biology, medicine and the environment has progressed significantly since the very successful Second Edition of the book published in 2012. Beginning with an overview of metals and selected nonmetals in biology, the book supports the interdisciplinary nature of this vibrant area of research by providing an introduction to basic coordination chemistry for biologists and structural and molecular biology for chemists.

    Having built this accessible foundation, the book progresses to discuss biological ligands for metal ions, intermediary metabolism and bioenergetics, and methods to study metals in biological systems. The book also covers metal assimilation pathways; transport, storage, and homeostasis of metal ions; sodium and potassium channels and pumps; magnesium phosphate metabolism and photoreceptors; calcium and cellular signaling; the catalytic role of several classes of mononuclear zinc enzymes; the biological chemistry of iron; and copper chemistry and biochemistry.

    In addition, the book discusses nickel and cobalt enzymes; manganese chemistry and biochemistry; molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium, and chromium; non-metals in biology; biomineralization; metals in the brain; metals and neurodegeneration; metals in medicine and metals as drugs; and metals in the environment. Now in its Third Edition , this popular and award-winning resource highlights recent exciting advances and provides a thorough introduction for both researchers approaching the field from a variety of backgrounds, as well as advanced students.


  • Molybdenum and tungsten enzymes. editors: Russ Hille, Carola Schulzke, Martin L. Kirk
    QP601.7
    The book will cover the bio-, inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry of molybdenum containing enzymes, including mononuclear molybdenum-containing enzymes, the complex Fe/Mo enzyme nitrogenase, and also tungsten enzymes. The full range of physicochemical methods that are used to investigate their and function will be covered. There has been no comprehensive book in this area for the past 30 years, despite great progress in our understanding of molybdenum enzymes and relevant inorganic complexes of molybdenum, and as a result the proposed book will both fill an enormous gap in coverage of the field and at the same time document the latest research. The book will be useful for workers in the field of metal-containing enzymes, graduate students and young investigators interested in developing new research programs in the area. It will also serve as a useful reference for researchers outside the field. Cross promotion: Journals: Dalton Transactions and Metallomics . Books: " Iron-Containing Enzymes ", Visser and Kumar, 2011; " Binding, Transport and Storage of Metal Ions in Biological Cells ", Maret and Wedd, 2014.

  • A trail called home : tree stories from the Golden Horseshoe / Paul O'Hara
    QK203.O6
    An exploration of trees in the Golden Horseshoe and the stories they tell.



    Trees define so much of Canadian life, but many people, particularly in the Golden Horseshoe area of Ontario, don't know that much about them. Granted, it is harder here: there are more trees that are native to this area than anywhere else in Canada.



    The great storytellers of the landscape, trees are looking glasses into the past. They speak of biology, ecology, and geology, as well as natural and human history. Through a greater understanding of trees, we can become more rooted to the land beneath our feet, and our place in it.

  • City of beasts How animals shaped Georgian London / Thomas Almeroth-Williams
    QL 84.4 G7A46 2019
    This book explores the role of animals - horses, cattle, sheep, pigs and dogs - in shaping Georgian London. Moving away from the philosophical, fictional and humanitarian sources used by previous animal studies, it focuses on evidence of tangible, dung-bespattered interactions between real people and animals, drawn from legal, parish, commercial, newspaper and private records.This approach opens up new perspectives on unfamiliar or misunderstood metropolitan spaces, activities, social types, relationships and cultural developments. Ultimately, the book challenges traditional assumptions about the industrial, agricultural and consumer revolutions, as well as key aspects of the city's culture, social relations and physical development. It will be stimulating reading for students and professional scholars of urban, social, economic, agricultural, industrial, architectural and environmental history.
