A TEXT-BOOK OF BOTANY By Dr. R. R. Tembhurne et al.
Paperback: $8.28
Prints in 3-5 business days
A fungus is a eukaryote microbe that absorbs nutrients directly through its cell walls from the host / substrate and digests food. Most fungi reproduce sexually and by asexual spores. They have a... More > body (thallus) composed of microscopic tubular cells called hyphae. Fungi are heterotrophs and obtain their carbon and energy from other organisms. Some fungi are parasites and obtain their food from a living host (plant or animal) and hence they are called biotrophs. Some fungi are growing as saprophytes and obtain their food from dead plants or animals. Some fungi infect a living host, but kill host cells in order to obtain their nutrients; these are called necrotrophs. Fungi were once considered to be primitive members of the plant kingdom and are slightly more advanced than bacteria. Fungi are more closely related to animals than they are to plants.< Less
Cancer: Nutrition and Survival By Steve Hickey & Hilary Roberts
eBook (PDF): $12.50
(1 Ratings)
Microevolution explains what cancer is, how it develops and how to eradicate it. Cancer occurs in multi-celled organisms when cells escape the body’s controls and behave like their... More > single-celled ancestors. Such changes, triggered by oxidative damage, result in faulty cell division. Animals and plants have developed ways to stop their cells reverting to primitive forms. Hence, anticancer substances are common throughout nature. Therapies based on these take advantage of metabolic differences between cancer cells and healthy cells, to destroy cancer while helping healthy cells. Clinical trials are needed to test such non-toxic therapies. Biological research suggests that cancer is a treatable condition. Although current data is not sufficient to indicate the degree of life extension achievable, many terminal patients might die of other causes, before the cancer kills them. Cancer patients deserve to be offered this opportunity. Non-printable e-book - printed version now available.< Less

It allows you to reenergize your brain cells and focus better. Other reports have documented that spending time in nature relieves stress, lowers your blood pressure, and helps to fight depression. It also gives you a boost to your self-esteem and your spirits. Several recent studies have also touted the stress-relieving benefits of coloring books Just the act of coloring calms the nerves and focuses the brain. Tuleyome’s “Nature and You” coloring book for adults combines art and nature, allowing folks to actively participate in their own stress relief while at the same time learning a little bit more about the natural subjects they’re coloring. It is hoped that this process will help to forge a positive mental association between colorists and the great outdoors.< Less

The body size of mammals, determining by amount of hemoglobin's oxygen affinity, By Ramin Amirmardfar
Paperback: $16.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Mammals are found in different sizes in nature. Most of scientists believe that environmental circumstances and mammals' living style determine their body size. So scientists haven't been looking... More > forward to find a physiological factor for this size difference among mammals. But my research on animals and plants size has specified that there is a direct relationship between animals/plants size and blood/fluid circulatory system. The oxygen molecules enter into the blood from lungs and stick to the red cells. After moving a distance they reach the tissues and get separated from the red cells and then the cell uses it. What the oxygen molecules combine with hemoglobin and stick to red cells? What causes the oxygen molecules to get separated from the hemoglobin in tissues? And the most important point is that, what causes the oxygen molecules to get separated from the red cells sooner or later? The transfer of oxygen to the blood is done by circulation. So the reason is the oxygen's thickness or pressure.< Less

The skin, like every other part of the body, is made up of tiny animal cells. In the outer coat they become quite flat like little scales and then wear off; and their places are taken by the newer cells that are growing from beneath.< Less
