Histology and Cell Biology

The part on mobile biology has been drastically improved and now comprises details on either the structural and useful facets of the subject.

Pathology of Incipient Neoplasia, 3rd Ed.

Many malignant tumors have a morphologically recognizable precursor lesion. As screening and early detection have greater our skill to observe lesions at more and more past levels of development, an elevated variety of precancerous lesions are obvious by way of pathologists. regrettably, a scarcity of uniform histologic standards for precursors present in many organs could make diagnostic interpretation tricky.

Growth of algae can serve as an indicator of high moisture content (Fig. 16). Similarly, mould and bacteria can cause pink discoloration (Fig. 17). Overview of Damage to Medieval Rural Churches in Estonia 57 Fig. 14 Wooden beam has become a suitable habitat for rot. Wooden cladding on the interior surface has speeded up the process Fig. 15 Condensation on cold surfaces due to ventilation with moist air is an important factor in wetting of the structures (note the reflection from the moist floor) The situation could be improved by the means of conservation heating that would avoid too low temperatures in winter.

3. 3 Walls Typical wall structure consists of limestone or rubble stone masonry, which is sometimes covered with lime plaster and lime paint. It has to be kept in mind that of the thick masonry wall, only the surface layers could have been tied together with lime mortar and the infill can be loose material. In such cases, already the degradation of the surface layer can result in loss of load-bearing capacity and collapse. Overview of Damage to Medieval Rural Churches in Estonia 51 Fig. 3 Ground around the church is sloped towards the building and leads water to the structure, frost damage caused by excess moisture is also visible Fig.

34 Ornament on the fifth-floor terrace, north wing, external wall—the damage goes deep into its metallic structure (Mar 2014) and worked alongside the DPH personnel and construction staff, in order to better perform the restoration of the mortars of this historic building (Fig. 38). This kind of work was only possible due to intense labour, study and documentation on the Pavilhão Mourisco since the beginning of Fundação Oswaldo Cruz’s Departamento de Patrimônio Histórico activities. The expertise of all professionals involved in actions held in the building over the years, recorded in reports, surveys and photographs, and kept at DPH archives, was vital to understand Pathology Analysis and Intervention at the Pavilhão Mourisco … Fig.
