Life in Limbo
- This format is currently out of stock.
Many organisms can reduce their resting metabolic rate to a state of suspended animation to allow them to survive in adverse environmental conditions. Molecular Mechanisms of Metabolic Arrest focuses on the latest opinions of molecular mechanisms and principles of dormancy regulation, highlighting various new concepts in metabolic rate control. This book will strongly appeal to all molecular and comparative scientists studying organismal responses to environmental stress. It is also of relevance to medical researchers interested in how natural systems of hypometabolism can be applied to relevant problems in medicine.
