Genetics

Genetics is the study of inheritance. We are interested in those of its aspects which are important for the survival of the Earth and its residents.

In “Chromosomes and Stress,” we examine the potential impact of our ever more psychologically stressful lifestyles on our genetic endowments. We address the question of which is more important in breast cancer, inheritance or environment in “The Biology And Politics Of Breast Cancer.”

Should we be concerned about the rapid spread of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in our food? Read about some disturbing evidence and trends in: “The Dark Side Of Genetic Engineering,” ” Only God Can Make A Tree,”  and “The Empire Strikes Back.”

Genetics also plays an important role in the reintroduction of wolves in the United States. Just, how many are needed to insure a biologically vigorous and genetically connected population? Are the wolves in danger of being exterminated again? If you are interested in these matters, will find grist for your mill in articles like “The Number of Wolves Needed for Survival,” and Biogeographic And genetic Factors In Northern Rockies Wolf Populations .
