Biophysics and biochemistry at low temperatures

£25.00

Product description

Cambridge University Press, First edition, 1985. Hardback in laminated boards; 8vo., [x] 210 pp., diagrams, charts and tables throughout; No D/J, probably as issued. Book condition: VG, bumped at ends of spine, no inscriptions; image is stock image.
Cold is the single most important enemy of life, and this book, first published in 1985, discusses the responses of living organisms to low temperatures. Subfreezing temperatures in particular affect the properties of water, which is essential to life, and the book describes the physics and chemistry of water in the context of physiology. Injury from cooling and the way in which organisms respond and survive, as well as the mechanism of cold hardening in micro-organisms, insects and plants are discussed. The laboratory exploitation of low temperatures to preserve life and to protect labile materials against freeze damage is also considered.
