Principles of Bone Biology is the essential resource for anyone involved in the study of bones. It is the most comprehensive, complete, up-to-date source of information on all aspects of bones and bone biology in one convenient source. Written and published in less than one year, it will become an indispensable resource for any scientific or medical library. This, second edition, details countless advances over the past five years, both by updating old chapters and providing additional material. It takes the reader from the basic elements of fundamental research to the most sophisticated concepts in therapeutics. The most current and timely source of information about the biology and pathology of bone Provides succinct coverage of the subject Contributors include over 200 of the most respected researchers in the field Extensive table of contents and index for easy reference Easy-to-read and highly informative to both the newcomer and the initiated to the field Spans the spectrum from molecular biology to in vivo pharmacology Complete bibliography with each entry fully referenced for additional background reading First edition was selected by Doody Publishing as one of the 250 Best Health Science books published in 1996.
