Forty-First Lauriston S. Taylor Lecture: Environmental Radiation and Life-A Broad View.
A broad overview of present day radioecology is provided, which includes the use of radioactive tracers to study ecosystem functions, the fate and transport of radionuclides in the biosphere, and radiation effects on plants and animals.
The Environment of Space Exploration
Understanding the nature of the space environment is as important for physicians, astronauts, life scientists, and aeronautical engineers, as it is for planetary and physical scientists. Designing
Radiation chemical aspects of the origins of life
A review is presented on the abiotic synthesis of amino acids and purine and pyrimidine bases in processes involving the action of high energy radiation. It is shown that all the 20 proteinogenic
Biogeochemische Regulation in limnischen Ökosystemen: Zur Ökologischen Bedeutung von Huminstoffen
Der Beitrag widmet sich den biogeochemischen und okologischen Rolle von toten organischen Stoffen in Binnengewassern. Alle Organismen werden gefressen oder sterben und setzen auf diese Weise
Miller-Urey and Beyond: What Have We Learned About Prebiotic Organic Synthesis Reactions in the Past 60 Years?
Questions remain, however, concerning whether the conditions that allow synthesis of these compounds in the laboratory accurately simulate those that might have been present on the early Earth, and a closer convergence between plausible prebiotic conditions and laboratory simulations remains a challenge for experimentalists.
Evaluating the plausibility of prebiotic multistage syntheses.
Of the various scenarios that have been invoked for studying the origin of life, the ‘‘RNA first’’ model continues to be one of the most favored, due to the great explanatory power the hypothesis provides for understanding how Darwinian evolution might have begun.
Dissolved humic substances – ecological driving forces from the individual to the ecosystem level?
Evidence is presented that dissolved HS are indeed taken up and interact directly and/or indirectly with freshwater organisms, and that they exert a mild chemical stress upon aquatic organisms in many ways.
The subsurface origin of microbial life on the Earth.
