Scoliosis spine deformity, X-ray Featured 9 Apr 2003 Print

Scoliosis spine deformity, X-ray

Scoliosis sideways deformity of the spine of a woman, coloured X-ray. The spine (upper centre) is severely bent. The deformity affected the patient's posture, leading to severe erosion of both hip joints (lower left and right). The hip joint at lower left has been replaced by a prosthesis (black). Scoliosis may be due to a congenital abnormality of the vertebrae (spinal bones), a spinal injury or a disease such as poliomyelitis. The disease may start in childhood for no obvious cause, and progresses until growth stops, often causing severe deformity. Treatment is of the underlying cause, or immobilisation of the spine with a brace or by spinal fusion

Bothriolepis prehistoric fish

Bothriolepis sp. fish in a lake in the Devonian period (408-360 million years ago), computer artwork. Bothriolepis sp. fish are amongst the earliest fish known. They had plates of armour over the front part of their bodies, but none on their tails. Fossils of Bothriolepis sp. fish have been found throughout the world in rocks from the middle and late Devonian period. They were mainly freshwater fish, but could tolerate sea water as well. They had two lungs, and could survive out of water for a time. They fed on algae and detritus at the sea or lake bed. This model is from the Devonian Sea Simulator, an interactive virtual reality model of Devonian marine life


Ginkgo leaf and berries Featured 9 Apr 2003 Print

Ginkgo leaf and berries

Ginkgo leaf and berries from the maidenhair tree (Ginkgo biloba). This two-lobed leaf is unique among trees in that it has no midrib and no network of veins. Instead, the venation consists of a constantly branching fan of veins from the base of the leaf. The leaves turn a golden yellow in autumn. This species of maidenhair tree is the only living representative of the ancient Ginkgoales (family Ginkgoaceae). Ginkgo biloba has separate male and female plants. The tree is adaptable to almost any climate, and from China it was successfully introduced into Europe early in the 18th century
