Animals and plants live in changing environmental conditions which require adaptation in order to cope with this. Some of these environmental changes serve as signals which have to be "sensed" and interpreted correctly by the organisms to initiate the adaptation. This signal processing is based on biochemical, molecular and neuronal processes which are discussed in this book. All examples given underline that continuous adjustment of physiological functions is an essential requirement for life and survival in complex changing environments.

To my mind, the superoxide radical discovered by Linus Pauling more than 50 years ago is about to become a major issue in Ameri can medicine. Uncannily, Pauling's early focus on vitamin C has pointed the way to the whole catalogue of free-radical scavengers, which we in medicine will be using in the coming decade. In ophthalmology, the basic scientists have been talking about the role of free-radical induction by light for some time. They have accumulated an increasing amount of evidence supporting the idea that prolonged light exposure contributes to cataract development and retinal degeneration. Through Clinical Light Damage to the Eye, we hope to bring this message to the practicing ophthalmolo gist. Because Dr. Pauling's work bears so strongly on the key issue of free-radical damage, and because of my own great respect for him as a scientist and a man of rare courage, I invited Dr. Pauling to write the foreword to Clinical Light Damage to the Eye, which follows.

Imagine hurricane winds over the Sahara Desert, preceded by a cavalry of tornadoes. Imagine dunes flattened, then resculpted. Then imagine all that at the bottom of the sea. A Category 4 hurricane has swept the west coast of Florida, creating havoc, changing lives, and reshaping the ocean bottom. Well-known reefs and wrecks have been covered—and new ones have emerged. From one such wreck, marine biologist Doc Ford and his friends make a chance discovery that will have a monumental effect—a cluster of mysterious objects that lead to an equally mysterious woman and her ancient, gray-gabled estate of a beach house. The woman weaves a haunting story of a loved one lost, and her chance to uncover the truth if Ford will help salvage the boat, named Dark Light, which sank without explanation in the hurricane of 1944. Intrigued, Ford agrees, and begins a chain of events that will change his life forever. For there are other things in that wreck as well, and other men who want them, men willing to commit terrible acts. And the woman herself—the woman is not what she seems. . . . Filled with passion and vivid, pungent prose and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Dark Light is a thriller of uncommon intensity.
