Noi, esseri ecologici

Morton

editore: Laterza

Non leggi libri che parlano di ecologia? Allora questo fa al caso tuo. Questo libro non predica ai convertiti. Non devi essere ecologico. Perché sei ecologico. Da qualche parte c’è un uccellino che canta e le nuvole passano in cielo. Guardati attorno: essere ecologici implica uno strano senso di inclusione personale in quello che si sta vivendo perché noi siamo l’ambiente e l’ambiente siamo noi. L’oceano che si acidifica! Il riscaldamento climatico! Le specie che si estinguono! Hai appena fatto in modo di non essere mai ecologico. Ti sei fatto schiacciare dall’afflusso dei dati, sei caduto nella trappola dell’orrore dell’estinzione e del riscaldamento globale. Hai davanti a te solo lo spettro della decisione finale, disperata, a pugni e denti stretti. Senti che devi essere o fare qualcosa di totalmente diverso. Ecco scavato il baratro: da questo momento in poi non farai che mostrare a te stesso e agli altri quanto è largo e profondo questo baratro. Essere ecologici comporta un cambiamento imponente, ma di segno differente da quello seguito fin qui: se hai una vaga idea che ci sia un dentro di te e un fuori di te, sei sulla buona strada. Non affogare nella paura della minaccia esterna, non c’è nulla di esterno, noi siamo parte della natura, noi siamo ecologici.

Anatomy Coloring Book for Health Professions

David A. Morton, Kurt H. Albertine

editore: McGraw-Hill Medical

pagine: 400

This is a creative, fun, and effective way to learn human anatomy. It features more than 200 illustrations. If you're looking for an interesting and innovative way to learn the various parts and systems of the human body, your search ends here! Anatomy Coloring Book for Health Professions is a fresh, fun way for students to grasp the big picture of human anatomy through a regional approach (head and neck and limbs). Anatomy Coloring Book for Health Professions is designed for the most effective learning possible: the left-hand page features a numerated structure list; the right-hand page has illustrations correlating to the numerated structure list; and simply choose a color and shade in a term on the left and the correlated structure on the right. Repeat for each structure in the list. White space is provided to enable you to transfer anatomy and clinical information from your lecture notes to the appropriate illustration or term. After an illustration is fully colored and notes have been transferred you will have created your own personalized textbook specific to your anatomy course! You will find that coloring imprints on your mind the shape and location of each body part, making later visualization much easier. The connection between eye and hand when coloring anatomic structures will prove to be an active and effective way to learn human anatomy.

Handbook of Pre-clinical Continuous Intravenous Infusion

D. Morton, David Smith
e altri

editore: Taylor & Francis Ltd

pagine: 344

Any scientist or technician involved in pre-clinical drug studies knows that infusing animal models with test substances is no simple matter, especially if one wants to do it humanely as well as guarantee results that are not compromised by the procedure. The challenge becomes compounded if one is employing a variety of species. What works for a rat or mouse does not necessarily work for a rabbit or primate. The Handbook of Pre-clinical Continuous Intravenous Infusion answers the needs of researchers and technicians by providing complete instructions for a wide range of infusion techniques delivered to several species. With sections devoted to rats, mice, rabbits, dogs, mini-pigs, and nonhuman primates (both large and small), this thorough text gives step-by-step instructions for the use of a variety of techniques, and equipment. It includes procedures for multidose infusion toxicity and reproductive toxicology studies, and provides guidance on the use of a variety of equipment, including tail cuffs, harnesses, and implanted buttons. It also offers detailed information on surgical preparation for primates and mini-pigs, along with advice about the use of preoperative anesthesia, post surgical analgesics, and antibiotic administration, as well as valuable input on surgical suite design. "...I was amazed and gratified about the level of detail and the practical emphasis on technical expertise and animal well-being. This book is unique in having that as an overt aim." From the Foreword, David B. Morton, University of Birmingham, UK The text concludes with a chapter on general non-species-specific information that discusses common pathological findings in continuous infusion studies, the use of mini-osmatic pumps, and controllable variables such as vehicles, rates of administration and volumes. With contributions from several established experts in the handling of pre-clinical animal models, this authoritative volume removes the need for any guesswork, allowing technicians and researchers to proceed with confidence in undertaking critical studies.
