Download Biologie für Einsteiger: Prinzipien des Lebens verstehen by Olaf Fritsche, Martin Lay PDF

By Olaf Fritsche, Martin Lay

Leben ist ein äußerst komplexes Phänomen und läuft doch vom winzigen Bakterium bis zum studierenden Menschen stets nach den gleichen Prinzipien ab. Die Einführung in die Biologie erschließt Kapitel für Kapitel diese grundlegenden Mechanismen und Strukturen. Mit ihrem modernen didaktischen Konzept legt die Einführung in die Biologie dabei auf völlig neue Weise den Schwerpunkt auf die Vermittlung eines wirklichen Verständnisses für die Abläufe in Zellen und Organismen. Selbst schwierige Themen wie Stoffwechsel, Immunsystem und Genetik entwickeln sich so nahezu von selbst und sind für Lernende leichter in den Gesamtkomplex des Lebens einzuordnen. Dadurch entsteht ein neuer Blick auf das Leben, der motiviert und befähigt, noch tiefer einzusteigen in die bestimmende Wissenschaft des 21. Jahrhunderts. Die zweite, aktualisierte Auflage der Einführung in die Biologie

  • bietet einen umfassenden Überblick über die Strukturen und Abläufe des Lebens
  • entwickelt schrittweise die notwendigen Mechanismen für Leben, als konstruiere der Leser selbst von Grund auf ein Lebewesen
  • verschafft über das Verständnis der Prinzipien einen leichteren Zugang zum umfangreichen Faktenwissen der Biologie
  • zeigt die Gemeinsamkeiten aller Lebensformen über die systematischen Grenzen hinweg auf • vermittelt eine Sichtweise, mit welcher sich auch komplizierteste Zusammenhänge durchschauen lassen
  • didaktische Elemente wie vertiefende Boxen, Fragen und Spickzettel am Kapitelende spielen eine herausragende Rolle
  • von Olaf Fritsche aus einer Hand intestine verständlich verfasst, unterhaltsam geschrieben und mit Cartoons angereichert
  • es lässt es auch Biologen an Universität und in der Industrie zu Wort kommen und erzählt so von den persönlichen Facetten in der Biologie.

Download Das Sehen in der Dämmerung: Physiologie und Klinik by Franz A. Hamburger PDF

By Franz A. Hamburger

Kenntnisse auf dem Gebiete der Physiolo ie gehoren zum Bildungsgut des Arztes, ja jedes Naturforschers. Das hier be handelte Thema ist sogar oft Gegenstand von Fragen, die der Laie an den Arzt richtet und die der Arzt manchmal nicht be friedigend beantworten kann. Der Verfasser hat sich deshalb be muht, bei aller Knappheit der Darstellung auch dem fachlich Uneingeweihten verstandlich zu bleiben. Dies um so mehr, als, las Thema einen Ausschnitt aus der Sinnesphysiologie betrifft, der die Augenheilkunde, die innere Medizin und die Neurologie, ja seihst die Physik und die Philosophie miteinander vereinigt. Es ist der Ehrgeiz des Verfassers, auch bei dpn Anhangern die;;er Disziplinen auf Interesse zu stossen. Die Studie stellt die Zusammenfassung von Arbeiten dar, die der Verfasser im Dienste der Deutschen Kriegsmarine in den Jahren 1942 bis 1945 ausgefuhrt hat. Sie gingen zu einem Teile auf Veranlassung und Anregung des Herrn Doz. Dr. E. He i n si u s zuruck, der mit Herrn Hofrat Prof. Dr. A. v. T s ehe r m a okay - S e y sen e g g eine eigene sinnesmedizinische Abteilung einge richtet hatte. Die Versuche dienten praktischen Gesichtspunkten. fuhrten aher zu Ergebnissen, die die Theorie des Lichtsinns nicht unwesentlich beeinflussen. In den drei Jahren entstanden etwa zehn Berichte, die bisher nicht veroffentlicht wenlen konnten
