On the thermodynamics of biological evolution

, : On the thermodynamics of biological evolution. Journal of Theoretical Biology 75(4): 425-441

A theory is proposed which describes biological evolution in terms of classical thermodynamics. Notions are introduced of particular forms of evolution as components of the general evolution of the biosphere.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether the application of chlorhexidine to etched enamel affects the shear bond strength and bracket/adhesive failure modes of orthodontic brackets. Forty recently extracted third molars were cleaned div...

The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the golden-mantled ground squirrel undergoes a phase-dependent change in its accumulation of 2-[14C]deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) relative to other brain structures during the hibernation cycle. The greatest relative...

The morphology adopted by ice in frozen tissues is accepted as one of the factors responsible for freezing damage. For this reason ice nucleation and growing mechanisms have been extensively studied. However, under the conditions used in the indus...
