The Biology of Nematodes - Biología de los Nematodos

The Biology of Nematodes -  Biología de los Nematodos

Nematode worms are amongst the commonest and most widely distributed animals on Earth. Many species cause serious diseases of humans and livestock and as such are responsible for much economic loss in agriculture. However, almost all animals and plants are susceptible to attack by parasitic nematodes. Although they are probably best known as parasites, most nematodes are free-living and occur in enormous numbers in almost every habitat suitable for life. Although many parasitic species have been extensively studied because of their medical, veterinary or agricultural importance, the most thoroughly studied nematode is the free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, the complete genome of which has now been elucidated.
This multi-authored reference text has an international list of contributors and aims to synthesize our knowledge of most aspects of the biology of free-living, plant parasitic and animal-parasitic nematodes. The use of molecular techniques, many of which have arisen from work on Caenorhabditis elegans, is increasingly opening up new approaches to the study of nematodes and this is reflected in several chapters in this book. Topics covered include:
* Systematics and phylogeny
* Neuromuscular physiology
* Locomotion
* Sense Organs
* Behaviour
* Ageing
* The nematode genome
The Biology of Nematodes is a suitable text for graduate students and for research scientists working on parasitic and free-living nematodes from the point of view of agriculture, control, helminthology, immunology, medical and veterinary parasitology, molecular biology, nematology, plant pathology and zoology.
Uno de los 1º libros posteados, el enlace ya había caducado y era de "gigle.ws" la página hermana de gigapedia (hoy library.nu), busqué y lo encontré en mis archivos guardados, además de buscarla en la internet. Puse con pass y sin pass, en media y filefactory, si tienes problemas, avisa, prueba en filefactory. Costó subirlo, y este librito está en html comprimido con winrar, recuerdo que había pensado pasarlo a word editarlo un poco y después pasarlo a pdf. Si bien no soy un diseñador editorial hago lo que puedo con los elementos que tengo a mano. Me gustaría sobremanera aprender  Adobe Indesign 5 o algún otro programa para aprender a diseñar ebooks, ya que me darían más herramientas o recursos para crear. :)
