How have we ended up with so many breeds of dog, and how can we understand their role in contemporary human society? Explore the answers to these questions and many more in this study of the domestic dog. Building on the strengths of the first edition, this much-anticipated update incorporates two decades of new evidence and discoveries on dog evolution, behavior, training, and human interaction. It includes seven entirely new chapters covering topics such as behavioral modification and training, dog population management, the molecular evidence for dog domestication, canine behavioral genetics, cognition, and the impact of free-roaming dogs on wildlife conservation. It is an ideal volume for anyone interested in dogs and their evolution, behavior and ever-changing roles in society.

JIM KOZUBEK

Moder n Promet heus EDITING THE HUMAN GENOME WITH CRISPR-CAS9

Would you change your genes if you could? As we confront the “industrial revolution of the genome,” the recent discoveries of Crispr‑Cas9 technologies are offering, for the first time, cheap and effective methods for editing the human genome. This opens up startling new opportunities as well as significant ethical uncertainty. Tracing events across a 50‑year period, from the first gene splicing techniques to the present day, this is the story of gene editing: the science, the impact, and the potential. Kozubek weaves together the fascinating stories of many of the scientists involved in the development of gene editing technology. Along the way, he demystifies how the technology really works and provides vivid and thought‑provoking reflections on the continuing ethical debate. Ultimately, Kozubek places the debate in its historical and scientific context to consider both what drives scientific discovery and the implications of the “commodification” of life.

TEXTBOOK

Plant Ecology Origins, Processes, Consequences Second edition Paul A. Keddy

This book presents a global and interdisciplinary approach to plant ecology, guiding students through essential concepts with real-world examples. Advance praise: ‘Keddy’s Plant Ecology is a refreshing synthesis of the core concepts of the discipline. It is a remarkably readable book that is brimming with vivid stories about the central role of plants in the biosphere. This milestone in the canon of ecological literature pays homage to the previous generations of plant ecologists that built the field as we know it. The organisation is unconventional yet intuitive, the prose is animated yet enlightening, and the revised figures are both colourful and instructive. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to acquire a broad understanding of plant ecology.’ Daniel Laughlin, The University of Waikato, New Zealand

Fred D. Singer

‘The textbook has a very logical approach, which actually matches the four main syllabus areas of my first year undergraduate course in ecology and evolution. The author says that he has read all the usual textbooks and that is evident. It is very refreshing to read a new textbook, rather than a new edition of an old textbook. The format is very engaging, particularly getting students to think about different types of exam questions at the end … The case studies bring the chapters to life, which contributes to making this a very interesting read; ecology textbooks can be theoryheavy, which makes them very dry. The structuring of chapters is very intuitive and builds on previous chapters, as a lecture course would. However, a chapter could be read out of order too as explanations are very clear.’

The Emergence of Life From Chemical Origins to Synthetic Biology Second edition Pier Luigi Luisi Università degli Studi Roma Tre

Addressing the origins of biological and synthetic life from a systems biology perspective, this second edition has undergone an extensive revision and includes greater coverage of synthetic biology. Unique to this edition are discussions with contemporaries in the field, demonstrating an evolution of thought on the question ‘what is life?’. ‘It is ten years since Professor Luisi’s classic book The Emergence of Life appeared. It is highly welcome therefore that this second edition will explain many of the important advances that have occurred in the last decade. With his profound systems approach, Professor Luisi is better placed than anyone to do this. He also includes valuable interviews with other leading systems scientists. Highly recommended for those working in and interested in this growing field.’ Denis Noble, University of Oxford

This volume is part of the definitive edition of letters written by and to Charles Darwin, the most celebrated naturalist of the nineteenth century. Notes and appendixes put these fascinating and wide-ranging letters in context, making the letters accessible to both scholars and general readers. Darwin depended on correspondence to collect data from all over the world, and to discuss his emerging ideas with scientific colleagues, many of whom he never met in person. The letters are published chronologically: volume 24 includes letters from 1876, the year in which Darwin published Cross and Self Fertilisation in the Vegetable Kingdom, and started writing Forms of Flowers. In 1876, Darwin’s daughter-in-law, Amy, died shortly after giving birth to a son, Bernard Darwin, an event that devastated the family.

Biological anthropology and primatology Injury and Trauma in Bioarchaeology Interpreting Violence in Past Lives Rebecca C. Redfern Museum of London

This book provides a critical examination of the sources of social science, clinical and archaeological evidence that bioarchaeologists use to study injury in past communities. Redfern explores the consequences of violence in a bioarchaeological context, highlighting how its evidence can shed new light on the hierarchies and social relationships of past societies. ‘With Injury and Trauma in Bioarchaeology Redfern skilfully illustrates the potential of a truly bio-cultural approach to the skeletal record. Her interdisciplinary analysis, elegantly integrating knowledge and insights from medicine, social science and ecology, conveys the evolution and diversity of interpersonal violence on a global scale. Rich in exemplary case studies and illustrations, the volume takes us beyond the ‘when’, ‘where’ and ‘how’ to a genuine appreciation of the varied experience of past violence and its impact on the individual, those close to them and society as a whole. This insight into past lives is instructive and affecting in equal measure, setting a new benchmark for violence studies.’ Linda Fibiger, University of Edinburgh 2016 247 x 174 mm 340pp 20 b/w illus.  12 tables   978-0-521-11573-5 Hardback £49.99 / US$79.99 For all formats available, see

Its Evolution, Behavior and Interactions with People Second edition Edited by James Serpell

The ultimate book for anyone interested in domestic dogs, this second edition of a classic text includes seven new chapters covering topics such as behavioral modification and training, dog population management, molecular evidence for dog domestication, canine behavioral genetics, cognition, and the impact of free-roaming dogs on wildlife conservation. ‘The first edition of this book, published more than twenty years ago, broke new ground. It was the prelude to an explosion of research in the field of domestic dog behaviour, which has seen the subject move from largely the fringes of academia to a central position that provides a unique opportunity to explore some fundamental biological questions. This completely revised edition, continues in the tradition of the original text by selecting world leading experts to provide current insights into a range of important topics while also making the reader excited for the research which must follow to address the unanswered questions. I therefore have no doubt, that this edition, like the last, will inspire a whole new generation of canine scientists from across the academic disciplines.’ Daniel Mills, University of Lincoln 2016 246 x 189 mm 424pp 84 b/w illus.  8 colour illus.   978-1-107-02414-4 Hardback £69.99 / US$99.99 978-1-107-69934-2 Paperback £34.99 / US$49.99 For all formats available, see

Brassicaceae Edited by Ihsan Ali Al-Shehbaz University of Missouri, St Louis

Volume 30 of the Flora of PanHimalaya is devoted to the mustard family (Brassicaceae or Cruciferae). The Brassicaceae is one of the most natural plant families, and it is distributed on

all continents except Antarctica, though mainly in the temperate, alpine, and subarctic areas. The highest diversity of the family is in the Irano-Turanian region, followed by western North America, the Mediterranean region, the Andes of South America, and the Himalayan region. The nomenclatural novelties in this volume include the new species Lepidium densipuberulum and Sisymbrium nepalense, and the new name L. cuneiforme. Furthermore, the lectotypes of Aphragmus tibeticus, A. stewartii, Braya rubicundula, Cardamine calcicola, C. impatiens var. elongata, C. weixiensis, Draba lichiangensis, Eutrema deltoideum var. grandiflorum, E. przewalskii, E. sherriffii, Hemilophia serpens, Noccaea cochlearioides, Parrya chitralensis, Pyconplinthus uniflora, Solms-laubachia minor, and S.-L. xerophyta are newly designated.

This second part of Volume 48 of the Flora of Pan-Himalaya is devoted to the single genus, Saussurea of the Asteraceae family, which has wide medicinal applications. This is the largest family in the Pan-Himalaya, with 235 species, 149 of which are endemic to the Pan-Himalaya. Saussurea is a notoriously difficult, largely Asiatic, genus with often indistinct species boundaries. Many new species of Saussurea were described in the course of preparing this account. The nomenclatural novelties in this volume include five changes in status, and 17 new synonyms. 27 lectotypes are newly designated. During the research for this volume, the author and his team described 40 new species of Saussurea, and these, along with numerous new designations and classifications, are recorded here for the first time.

Dance to the Tune of Life Biological Relativity Denis Noble University of Oxford

In this thought-provoking book, Denis Noble formulates the theory of biological relativity, emphasising that living organisms operate at multiple levels of complexity and must therefore be analysed from a multi-scale, relativistic perspective. Noble explains that all biological processes operate by means of molecular, cellular and organismal networks. The interactive nature of these fundamental processes is at the core of biological relativity and, as such, challenges simplified molecular reductionism. Noble shows that such an integrative view emerges as the necessary consequence of the rigorous application of mathematics to biology.

Drawing on his pioneering work in the mathematical physics of biology, he shows that what emerges is a deeply humane picture of the role of the organism in constraining its chemistry, including its genes, to serve the organism as a whole, especially in the interaction with its social environment. This humanistic, holistic approach challenges the common gene-centred view held by many in modern biology and culture. ‘Among its many merits, this remarkable book deserves to become a classic text in the philosophy of science. Almost alone among philosophers of science, Noble is a practising scientist; and unusually among practising scientists, he is an accomplished philosopher. His book brings out, with unparalleled clarity, how the scientific endeavour involves not only empirical inquiry but also conceptual structure. Noble shows how, on the negative side, popular presentations of sound biological results may be vitiated by bad metaphysics, and how, on the positive side, science and philosophy may extend the boundaries of knowledge by a unified epistemology. He ends, however, with a salutary warning that there may well be a limit to the human capacity to know the answers to ultimate questions.’ Sir Anthony Kenny, University of Oxford 2016 228 x 152 mm 300pp 21 b/w illus.  26 colour illus.   978-1-107-17624-9 Hardback £17.99 / US$24.99 For all formats available, see

This book introduces Python as a powerful tool for the investigation of problems in computational biology, for novices and experienced programmers alike. ‘As a long-time advocate of Python as the language of choice for both the bulk of biological data analysis and for teaching computer programming to molecular life scientists, I am delighted to see this book. [It] provides a well-focused introduction to Python programming but then goes on to use the clarity of the Python language to demystify a wide range of commonly applied data processing and analysis techniques that arise in modern cell and molecular biology. The integration of straightforward introductions to sequence analysis, image processing and statistical analysis (amongst others) into a book on Python is inspired. The clarity of the Python language helps to show that often ‘yes it really is that simple’, in

“... an impressive collection of chapters that provide insights into our current efforts to understand how genetic information is integrated, coordinated and ultimately assembled into biological systems.” Frank Buchholz, Technische Universität Dresden, Germany

Whereas genetic studies have traditionally focused on explaining heritance of single traits and their phenotypes, recent technological advances have made it possible to comprehensively dissect the genetic architecture of complex traits and to quantify how genes interact to shape phenotypes. This exciting new area has been termed systems genetics and is born out of a synthesis of multiple fields, integrating a range of approaches and exploiting our increased ability to obtain quantitative and detailed measurements on a broad spectrum of phenotypes. Gathering the contributions of leading scientists, both computational and experimental, this book shows how experimental perturbations can help us to understand the link between genotype and phenotype. A snapshot of current research activity and state-of-the-art approaches to systems genetics is provided, including work from model organisms such as Saccharomices cerevisiae, Drosophila melanogaster, as well as from human studies. Researchers and graduate students in genetics, functional genomics, bioinformatics, computational biology, systems biology and biotechnology will find this a valuable and timely resource.

TEXTBOOK

The Neuroscience of Intelligence Richard J. Haier University of California, Irvine

Why are some people smarter than others? This book clearly explains what neuroscience tells us about intelligence and the brain, emphasizing genetic and neuroimaging research. It dispels common misconceptions and shows how neuroscientific methods could dramatically enhance intelligence, with surprising implications for education and social policy. Advance praise: ‘Forty years of Haier’s research and thinking about the neuroscience of intelligence have been condensed into this captivating book. He consistently gets it right, even with tricky issues like genetics. It is an intelligent and honest book.’ Robert Plomin, King’s College London

Contents: 1. What we know about intelligence from the weight of studies; 2. Nature more than nurture: the impact of genetics on intelligence; 3. Peeking inside the living brain: neuroimaging is a game

and Gary G. Berntson Ohio State University

The Handbook of Psychophysiology has been the authoritative resource for more than a quarter of a century. Since the third edition was published a decade ago, the field of psychophysiological science has seen significant advances, both in traditional measures such as electroencephalography, event-related brain potentials, and cardiovascular assessments, and in novel approaches and methods in behavioural epigenetics, neuroimaging, psychoneuroimmunology, psychoneuroendocrinology, neuropsychology, behavioural genetics, connectivity analyses, and noncontact sensors. At the same time, a thoroughgoing interdisciplinary focus has emerged as essential to scientific progress. Emphasizing the need for multiple measures, careful experimental design, and logical inference, the fourth edition of the Handbook provides updated and expanded coverage of approaches, methods, and analyses in the field. With state-of-the-art reviews of research in topical areas such as stress, emotion, development, language, psychopathology, and behavioural medicine, the Handbook remains the essential reference for students and scientists in the behavioural, cognitive, and biological sciences. ‘The much-anticipated update to this authoritative Handbook provides the comprehensive coverage we’ve come to expect from the trio of Cacioppo, Tassinary, and Berntson and the impressive roster of world-renowned contributors they’ve assembled. With pragmatic, conceptual, and cutting-edge coverage of a wide

range of approaches, methods, and applications, the fourth edition of the Handbook of Psychophysiology will inspire and inform research across a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines.’ John J. B. Allen, University of Arizona

HIGHLIGHT

Modern Prometheus Editing the Human Genome with Crispr-Cas9 Jim Kozubek Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts

Would you change your genes if you could? As we confront the ‘industrial revolution of the genome’, the recent discoveries of Crispr-Cas9 technologies are offering, for the first time, cheap and effective methods for editing the human genome. This opens up startling new opportunities as well as significant ethical uncertainty. Tracing events across a fifty-year period, from the first gene splicing techniques to the present day, this is the story of gene editing – the science, the impact and the potential. Kozubek weaves together the fascinating stories of many of the scientists involved in the development of gene editing technology. Along the way, he demystifies how the technology really works and provides vivid and thoughtprovoking reflections on the continuing ethical debate. Ultimately, Kozubek places the debate in its historical and scientific context to consider both what drives scientific discovery and the implications of the ‘commodification’ of life. ‘Kozubek … gives the general reader a solid introduction to the current state of affairs, as seen by its creators and those who are using it in research and commerce.’ George J.

Here are stories for posterity, from the funding barriers that challenged Thomas Bouchard’s study of rearedapart twins, to Michael Gazzaniga’s exhilaration on discovering the wonders of human split-brains, to Carol Dweck’s ‘me-search’ on how she and others could find a thriving mindset when facing obstacles. This is living history – and a great read for both psychological scientists and students.’ David G. Myers, Hope College, Michigan

Review of previous edition: ‘Major highlights of the book are completely transparent examples of classical yet always intriguing mathematical, statistical, engineering, economics, and physics problems. In addition, the book explains a seamless use with Microsoft Word for integrating MATLAB® outputs with documents, reports, presentations, or other online processes. Advanced topics with examples include: Monte Carlo simulation, population dynamics, and linear programming. … an outstanding textbook, and, likewise, should be an integral part of the technical reference shelf for most IT professionals. It is a great resource for wherever MATLAB® is available!’ ACM Ubiquity
