Life in the Frozen State
Cryobiology is the study of living things at low temperatures. For more than 50 years, science has explored whether cold may preserve life. Today, cryobiology plays an important role in medicine, agriculture, horticulture, and forestry, as well as in the conservation of endangered plant, animal and microbial species. Life in the Frozen State is a comprehensive review of the effects of freezing on living organisms, and how the use of cryobiology can benefit humanity in healthcare and conservation. The book takes a multidisciplinary approach, combining theory and practice across a range of species and applications.
