General Aging and the health and quality of life of the elderly tend to be low priorities in the government policies of most European countries. There is a need for further efforts to improve active life expectancy, income support, housing, transport, community participation and services for the elderly. The goal is to improve the quality of their lives and reduce inequities in aging existing in the Region. Most elderly people maintain their health, which enables them to...

The programme for malaria eradication laid down by the WHO Expert Committee on Malaria in 1956, and subsequently, met with initial spectacular successes since it freed from the threat of endemic malaria approximately 1 000 million people who were living in malarious areas before the programme started. In the early 1960s, however, it became apparent that in some other parts of the world there were administrative, financial, and technical problems that did not permit inter...

Revision of the medical curriculum is a perennial subjecc of debate. The reason advanced for revision may be to relieve the medical student of some of the burden of assimilating an ever increasing body of knowledge; or, at the other extreme, to provide space in the curriculum for new subjects as they emerge from the advances of medical science; or to prevent the medical student from being so overwhelmed by the sheer number of medical specialties that he is unable to see ...

By: M. Schmidt

Description: Institut für Spezielle Zoologie und Evolutionsbiologie, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Erbertstr. 1, 07743 Jena, Germany. The purpose of this article is to provide a survey of the diversity of primate locomotor behaviour for people who are involved in research using laboratory primates. The main locomotor modes displayed by primates are introduced with reference to some general morphological adaptations. The relationships between locomotor behaviou...

By: H. G. Wallraff

Description: Max Planck Institute for Ornithology, 82319 Seewiesen/Starnberg, Germany. A model of avian goal-oriented navigation is described that is based on two empirical findings building a bridge from ornithology to atmospheric chemistry. (1) To orient their courses homeward from distant unfamiliar areas, homing pigeons require long-term exposure to undisturbed winds at the home site and olfactory access to the environmental air at home and abroad. (2) Above Ger...

Description: SUPA, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Edinburgh, King's Buildings, Edinburgh EH9 3FD, UK. Understanding how the Earth's biogeochemical cycles respond to environmental change is a prerequisite for the prediction and mitigation of the effects of anthropogenic perturbations. Microbial populations mediate key steps in these cycles, yet they are often crudely represented in biogeochemical models. Here, we show that microbial pop...

Description: Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering (IBMT), 66386 St. Ingbert, Germany. The frequency of life forms in the fossil record is largely determined by the extent to which they were mineralised at the time of their death. In addition to mineral structures, many fossils nonetheless contain detectable amounts of residual water or organic molecules, the analysis of which has become an integral part of current palaeontological research. ...
