The Biology of Respiration

Produced in 1979 by the Institute of Biology as part of its Studies in Biology series, this booklet looks at the processes of respiration. It expands the topic to include the role of membrane systems in energy transduction and a consideration of the 'sulphide layer'. This occurs under surface sediments on the...

Cell Division and Heredity

Produced in 1970 by the Institute of Biology as part of its Studies in Biology series, this booklet looks at mitosis and meiosis in relation to reproduction as a whole. It considers meiosis as a sequence of events through which the genetic information of all sexually reproducing species must pass if they are to...

The Biology of Weeds

Produced in 1977 by the Institute of Biology as part of its Studies in Biology series, this booklet looks at the ways in which plants are organized and how they cope with their environment. Weeds almost always interfere with the growth of crops and are important because of the huge losses in yield which they cause...
