(9) Atwood's post-apocalyptic society in the MaddAddam books dramatizes the impact of bioscientific
advances, while addressing the divide between the sciences and the humanities, with the latter occupying an inferior place in the context of the overpowering technological corporations that rule the postecocide world, divided into the gated communities of the wealthy and the "pleeblands" (Oryx and Crake, 27).

The 150th anniversary of Darwin's Origin of Species attracted much attention in 2009, but just one year before the arrival of this influential treatise another Victorian bioscientific
"bestseller" appeared in the form of Anatomy, Descriptive and Surgical by Henry Gray.
Gas exchange characteristics were measured 4-6 h during the 12 h photoperiod using a LCi (ADC, Bioscientific
, England) portable photosynthesis system (block temperature 25 [degrees]C, C[O.sub.2] reference 360 [micro]mol C[O.sub.2] [mol.sup.-1], PAR 500 [micro]mol [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1], flow rate 300 [micro]mol [s.sup.-1]).
Coefficients obtained by removing this 30% subset and re-estimating differed insignificantly in Wald tests from those drawn from the full sample, suggesting the results apply to a comparatively broad range of bioscientific
Given the high rate of new facility construction and slower growth in hiring at Eli Lilly, most job growth in health care is occurring in the services delivery area instead of bioscientific
research and life science enterprise creation.
Leaf Fv/Fm was estimated by measuring chlorophyll fluorescence (a ratio of variable to maximum photo yield to Fv/ Fm) with a fluorescence induction monitor (BioScientific
Ltd., Herts, UK).
There have always been doctors, even though medicine did not always work, at least in the modern sense of the word "work." Now that medicine does work in new, sometimes frightening, sometimes morally ambiguous, ways, doctors have become something they have never been before: they are still what they have always been--shamans, comforters, healers, guides through the transitions of birth, illness and death--but today they are also purveyors of the products of the bioscientific
The standard bioscientific
paradigm was worked out in order to help us understand-and control-the world around us.
In the early 1970s, students with a biosocial orientation as opposed to a bioscientific
orientation were more likely to enter primary care.
At the same age, readings of C[O.sub.2] assimilation (A), transpiration (E), intercellular C[O.sub.2] concentration ([C.sub.I]) and stomatal conductance (gs) were taken with the portable photosynthesis meter "LCPro+" of ADC BioScientific
Ltda, in the third fully expanded leaf subjected to saturating irradiance (1000 [micro]mol [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]).
For the measurements corresponding to gas exchange: transpiration rate (E, [micro]mol [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]), stomatal conductance (gs, [micro]mol [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]) and photosynthetic CO2 assimilation rate (A, [micro]mol [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]) a portable photosynthesis system (LCpro+, ADC BioScientific
, UK) was used.
