  • Conserving biodiversity is a daunting and complex task. Perhaps no species presents a greater challenge than the giant panda – one of the most recognized and threatened animals on the planet. Its difficult-to-traverse, mountainous habitat in China makes quantifying population numbers in the wild exceedingly difficult. Despite a recent survey suggesting that the wild population may be growing, there is no disagreement that the primary threat is severely fragmented habitat.

  • This volume is the first book-length survey of caveolae and lipid rafts. Interest has developed rapidly in the role of these surface microdomains in such diverse fields as transmembrane signaling, cell locomotion, vascular relaxation, senescence, and the uptake and exit from cells of viruses and bacteria. Individual chapters in this volume cover areas as diverse as the forces that induce and maintain membrane invaginations, and the clinical relevance of multiprotein complexes at the cell surface, defects in which are associated with cancer, and Alzheimer’s and prion-dependent diseases....

  • In 1996, the Committee on Population of the National Research Council sponsored a novel workshop on the biodemography of aging, which resulted in the volume Between Zeus and the Salmon: The Biodemography of Longevity (National Research Council, 1997). The workshop and its report, which considered the continuing increases in human life span in a broad biological context, launched a new phase in studies of human aging at the population level.

  • India is home to the largest number of children in the world, significantly larger than the number in China.1 The country has 20 per cent of the 0- 4 years’ child population of the world. The number of live births in the country is estimated to be 27 million,2 which again constitutes 20 per cent of the total number of live births in the world. Although the number of births is expected to gradually go down in the coming years, the relative load of India in the world in terms of child population is not going to lessen significantly for a long time to come.

  • This paper is intended as an overview of recent developments and trends. It wishes to pro- vide a short survey of the principal families of approaches, their use and limitations. Algo- rithms generic or specific to particular imaging modalities are not given here (see for exam- ple (10)). Section 2 presents the analysis pipeline, which accepts as input raw data and provides some form of processing or interpretation. Two basic processing paradigms are summarized in section 3, namely linear (or pseudo-linear) and morphological.
