Hair of West European Mammals by B. J. Teerink


Book Description:
Mammalian hair has long played a role in human society; as fur for clothing, in the production of cloth, or in the production of brushes. Scientists too make use of mammalian hair as a diagnostic tool in areas such as animal ecology, wildlife biology, and nature management. The identification of hairs found in the field, in the intestine or faeces of carnivores, or in the pellets of owls and raptors, can yield valuable information on the distribution of mammals and the diet of their predators. This photographic atlas aids correct identification by providing data on the colour, form and length of hair and the structure of the cuticula, medulla and cross-sections. Identification is also aided by the provision of keys. This unique book will provide a valuable reference source for ecologists, zoologists and forensic scientists.

Vertebrate Hair Cells by Ruth Anne Eatock


Book Description:
Vertebrate Hair Cells provides a current overview of the mechanosensory receptor cells of the vertebrate inner ear. Each chapter is written by experimentalists active in exploring a particular set of questions in an aspect of hair cell function, including development, transduction, and synaptic transmission. Experimental approaches described include molecular, genetic, ultrastructural, biophysical and computational. Thus, each chapter covers not just what we know, but how we have learned it and the implications for future work. The experimental focus differentiates this book from general textbooks and targets an advanced audience, from senior undergraduates through to scientists in the field of hair cell research.
