- "The Nature of Biological Systems as Revealed by Thermal Methods is a guide for experiments using thermal methods. The Editor creates a unique resource that will enable others with a less mathematical background to gain a better understanding of biological problems." "This book enables beginners in the field of thermal analysis or calorimetry to understand the principles of thermodynamics being applied to biological systems. Biological systems are highly organized and very complex. The water and the different types of weak interactions among the macromolecules make the interpretation of thermal events very difficult. This book includes examples on how to handle such problems." "The book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in thermodynamics, including practising professionals applying thermal methods to biological problems; researchers and graduate students beginning work using thermal methods; and specialists of thermal analysis starting work on biological problems. In addition, this book is a useful resource for libraries and institutes as the only book covering quantitative thermal analysis of biological systems."--Jacket.
