Thirty-five million Americans are living beyond the age of sixty-five, a twenty-five year increase in life expectancy since 1900. This longevity, once the gift of a few, has become the destiny of many. This time of life is not just about retiring; in fact many who retire return happily to some type of employment. It is a new stage of life filled with its own unique challenges and opportunities. Co-authors Jane Thayer and Peggy Thayer, a mother-daughter team of psychologists, have named this stage of life, 'elderescence.'

The Grand Canyon is famous for its rock layers, multihued bands of limestones, shales, sandstones, granites, and schists that have made the canyon one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. But in many of those layers, the Grand Canyon contains a veritable sea of fossilized life, from ancient stromatolites in the Grand Canyon Supergroup layers to trilobites in the rimrock Kaibab Formation to ancient reptile trackways preserved in the Coconino Sandstone. An Introduction to Grand Canyon Fossils introduces readers to the vast evidence of ancient life in the canyon and to paleontology, the study of fossilized life. Written in an easy-to-read style and heavily illustrated with diagrams and photographs, the book offers readers access to worlds of ocean shallows, windswept sand dunes, and swampy forests that once covered the Grand Canyon region and have left evidence of their presence in fossils. An Introduction to Grand Canyon Fossils is the only book of its kind focusing on the fossils of the national park, and it will be a delight to readers young and old fascinated by evidence of life hardened in stone.

The lipids of cellular membranes not only serve roles in controlling the structure and fluidity of the membrane, but are increasingly recognized for their roles as signalling molecules and modifiers of membrane protein function. Recent studies described in this volume reveal striking changes in membrane lipids during aging and in age-related diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and neurodegenerative disorders. Lipids including inositol phospholipids, cholesterol, sphingolipids and ceramides play important roles in signalling cellular responses to stress and specific stimuli such as growth factors, cytokines and neurotransmitters. One or more of these lipid mediators has been linked to the pathogenesis of age-related diseases. This book provides a comprehensive review of specific membrane lipid mediators and their roles in aging and age-related disease.
