Our lives – and livelihoods – depend on the plants, animals, and microbes of this planet. The current extent and pace of environmental change, however, threatens our very way of being. At this point, our only hope is decisive action – a movement that must be informed by research in disciplines dealing directly with life. Biomedicine and Life Sciences provide us with just that. With applications in areas such as medicine, agriculture, and biotechnology, these fields are essential to maintaining and improving the quality of life on Earth.
The Biomedical and Life Sciences eBook Collection brings together up-to-date resources from trusted authors working around the world in all aspects of life: from patterns of infectious transmission to processes responsible for the loss of biodiversity.
