Neo-Darwinism

Produced in 1982 by the Institute of Biology as part of its Studies in Biology series, this booklet defines 'Darwinism' and describes the development of Charles Darwin's ideas about evolution. The term Darwinism is separated from the term 'evolution', even though Darwin's theories centred around natural selection...

The Physics of Heat Capacity

Part of the Macmillan Monographs in the Physical Sciences series, The Physics of Heat Capacity includes chapters on the heat capacities of gases and solids, and ideas for experimental projects.

Chapter 1, on the heat capacities of gases looks at the kinetic theory of gases...

Stomata

Produced in 1983 by the Institute of Biology as part of its Studies in Biology series, this booklet looks at the development and functions of stomata in plants. These prevent water loss and allow carbon dioxide in the air to diffuse into the intercellular air spaces of the photosynthetic tissues. Through evolution...

Inorganic Chemicals

This booklet, produced by Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) in 1978, is about chemicals whose initial development in Britain was based on salt (sodium chloride): Ammonia, chlorine, sodium carbonate and sulphuric acid. It also looks at the importance of common salt chemistry to the development of the entire heavy...

Monotremes and Marsupials: the Other Mammals

Produced in 1983 by the Institute of Biology as part of its Studies in Biology series, this booklet looks at the mammals of Australia, monotremes such as the platypus and marsupials like koalas and kangaroos. The resource considers their origins and biological features, including reproduction, temperature, energy...

Animal Asymmetry

Produced in 1976 by the Institute of Biology as part of its Studies in Biology series, this booklet studies animals which are not symmetrical - those which cannot be mirror-imaged along their mid-line. The asymmetry may be behavioural as well as structural and this is emphasised when looking at symmetrical animals...

Carrion and Dung: the Decomposition of Animal Wastes

Produced in 1983 by the Institute of Biology as part of its Studies in Biology series, this booklet looks at the interesting subject of the decomposition system and the importance of the organisms which facilitate this to ecology. This booklet examines the mechanics and processes of the decomposition of carrion and...
