Animal Models in Light of Evolution

FAQs About the Use of Animals in Science

These books are a milestone in the struggle to change a system mired in inertia and controlled by special interest groups.




Animal Models in Light of Evolution (Brown Walker) is written for the science-educated audience. This book is meant for people with doctorates in some area of science or the very motivated lay reader. This book does not simplify the material and expects the reader to be conversant in evolutionary biology, nonlinear dynamical systems also known as complex systems, evo devo, genomics including gene expression and regulation, ADMET and drug metabolizing enzymes, as well as other areas of science. It is available at all the usual Internet bookstores and from the publisher. Read the first 25 pages.

FAQs on the Use of Animals in Science:
A handbook for the scientifically perplexed
(University Press of America) explains, in an easy to follow format, areas where animals are used in science, areas where they can be viably used, and areas where their use is not scientifically viable. FAQs on the Use of Animals in Science analyzes the issue from an unbiased perspective concluding that while there are many areas where animal use is scientifically viable, e.g., as bioreactors, as heuristic devices, for replacement tissues in humans, and in dissection, there are other well publicized and highly defended areas where animal use is not scientifically viable.
