Divided into three concise sections, the book opens with the exciting history of phage research, beginning with Felix d'Herelle's 1917 description of a “microbe” that was antagonistic to bacteria, which he termed a bacteriophage. The first section also covers general information that will familiarize readers with phage biology. The next section is an exploration of the role of phages in the biology and pathogenicity of specific infectious bacteria. The concluding section details the application of phages in technology, including comprehensive material on recombineering in prokaryote, polysaccharide-degrading phages, and the use of phage in therapy and detection of bacteria.

The text, under the editorship of Stephen Jay Gould, provides thorough understanding of the latest research and is accompanied by paintings prepared especially for this book. Never before has our planet's evolution been so clearly, so ingeniously explained.History is marked by disaster. The Book of Life explains how mammals, having survived at least one of these disasters -- the impact of a massive comet -- luckily inherited the earth. Next came the rise of modern humans, who would shape the world as no creature has. As this fascinating history unfolds, gorgeous illustrations allow us to observe climate changes, tectonic plate movement, the spread of plant life, and the death of the dinosaurs. We discover the chains of animal survival, the causes and consequences of adaptation, and finally the environmental impact of human life. 2 kg parcel.
