Cryobiology-A Review

Abstract

Cryobiology is sometimes considered to be a new discipline, but this is not really so. Boyle in the 17th century and Hunter and Spallanzani in the 18th century were all intensely interested in different aspects of the biology of cold. Only the name is new; we believe it to have been coined by Sir Alan Parkes in the 1950’s and gradually came into general use in the 1960’s [1]. During the last three decades there have been considerable advances in our knowledge of the effects of low temperatures in biology, but it is largely because of possible practical applications of this knowledge that interest is now widespread and intense.
