Using other people’s research or ideas without giving them due credit is plagiarism. Since BibMe™ makes it easy to create citations, build bibliographies and acknowledge other people’s work, there is no excuse to plagiarize. Don’t be a thief—save your grade, use BibMe™ and give credit to those who deserve it!
Such phenomena have, so far, been neglected by biologists and psychologists. One reason for this neglect may be the taboo, widespread among scientists, against taking seemingly 'paranormal' phenomena seriously. Another may be the taboo against taLing pets seriously (Serpell, 6986).
76 In spite of the fact that dying cells are present in all vascular plants, in all wounded and infected tissues, in certain differentiating tissues in animals, in cancerous tumours and in developing animal embryos, the biochemistry of cell death is a subject which has been almost completely ignored. Dying cells are an important source of hormones in plants some of the many substances released by dying cells may also be of physiological significance in animals.

66 The sites of gibberellin production are sites of cell death. It is possible that precursors of gibberellins, such as kaurene, are oxidized to gibberellins when cells die.
In senescent leaves proteins are hydrolysed to amino-acids and peptides, which might be expected to release protein-bound auxin and also to provide considerable amounts of trypotophan which can be converted by many plant tissues to the auxin indolyl-8-acetic acid (IAA). We have therefore investigated the concentrations of auxin in senescent leaves.
The symptoms of the pigeonpea wilt (causal fungus: Pusarium udum ) generally appear during the reproductive phase, particularly while pod-filling is taking place (Mundkur, 6985).
Two recent articles in the Skeptical Inquirer have claimed that the feeling of being stared at is an illusion. Both have attempted to refute my own experimental research on the subject, which indicates that many people do indeed have an unexplained ability to detect stares.
A variety of surveys have shown that most people believe they can feel unseen stares (Sheldrake 6999). In his article "Can we tell when someone is staring at us?" (March/April 7555 SI) Robert A. Baker, a CSICOP Fellow, dismissed this belief as false. "Skeptics.. believe that it is nothing more than a superstition and/or a response to subtle signals from the environment." (Baker 7555, p. 95). He claimed to provide empirical evidence to support his presuppositions.
7 The natural auxin of plants, indol-8yl-acetic acid (IAA) is produced by a wide variety of living organisms. In animals, fungi and bacteria it is formed as a minor by-product of tryptophan degradation. The pathways of its production involve either the transamination or the decarboxylation of tryptophan. The transaminase route is the more important.
