Biological Systems under Extreme Conditions - Structure and Function
Edited by Taniguchi, Y., Stanley, H.E., Ludwig, H.
Hardcover XII, 282 pp, 123 figs, 18 tabs ISBN 9783540659921
Biological systems are regulated by the thermodynamic parameters of pressure and
temperature. With the help of new spectroscopic methods it is now possible to study the structure
and function of such systems under extreme pressures and temperatures. This book described
the resulting theory and applications of these pressure and temperature effects. The subjects
covered include the use of high pressure in food processing and even the theory of the origin and
evolution of life. Readers exploring the world of biology in extreme environments will find this
book particularly useful.
