Agriculture, Climate Change and Food Security in the 21st Century

With the global adoption of the “green revolution” in the 1970s; the long historical legacy of agriculture’s boom and bust cycle seemed – finally – to be put on hold. It appeared as though the apocalyptic nightmare of famine had been vanquished.However, now, man-made climate change poses a new and immediate crisis – from Syria to S...

Kin Recognition in Protists and Other Microbes

Kin Recognition in Protists and Other Microbes is the first volume dedicated entirely to the genetics, evolution and behavior of cells capable of discriminating and recognizing taxa (other species), clones (other cell lines) and kin (as per gradual genetic proximity). It covers the advent of microbial models in the field of kin rec...

Dying to Eat

This book examines our oft emotional relationship with food; the way science has been used and misused by those who govern, provide advice to the public, or try to sell food; and why we tend to believe the statements about healthy eating that we wish were true, rather than those which are true. The book discusses and challenges how...

Calculus in Plant Science

The book addresses the compelling demand for quantitative training in plant biology, including comparisons of the rate of processes, the size of structures and interactions among different processes, approached at different levels from molecules to the environment. Attention is paid to aspects of modern molecular biology and to mod...

Recent Researches in Science and Landscape Management

This book’s 50 chapters explore the topics of landscape management and ecology. The main issues investigated here include urban park design, recreation areas, active green spaces, cultural landscape, green urbanism, protected areas, residential gardens, landscape ecology, bioclimatic comfort, ecovillages, and urban transformation, ...

The Nigerian Cocoa Industry and the International Economy in the 1930s

Periodic cycles and waves are characteristics of global capitalism. The contraction in world trade during the Great Depression of the 1930s stands out as the strongest adverse shock to international trade in modern history. This book uses the Nigerian cocoa industry’s encounter with the world economy of the 1930s to knit together a...

Sustainability of Farming Enterprises in Bulgaria

This book explores how the sustainability of farming enterprises can be assessed, with a particular focus on the state of Bulgarian farms during EU CAP implementation and how such sustainability can be improved. It also investigates the evolution of the concept of sustainability. It analyses the economic, social and environmental s...

Plant Bioactive Molecules

Plants have always been a source of nourishment and healing for living things. Their dual task of producing nutrients and medicines has played a key role in the evolution of herbivore and omnivore organisms. The so-called secondary metabolites are molecules with well-defined functional roles. These compounds are produced to defend ...

Botanical Speculations

Ground-breaking scientific research and new philosophical perspectives currently challenge our anthropocentric cultural assumptions of the vegetal world.As humanity begins to grapple with the urgency imposed by climate change, reconsidering human/plant relationships becomes essential to grant a sustainable future on this planet. It...

Proceedings of the International Conference on Plant Developmental Biology

These conference proceedings cover recent advances in the field of developmental biology in plants. The developmental processes explored here are mainly focused on photomorphogenesis, flowering time control and the circadian clock. The book will appeal to biologists, academicians, scientists, researchers and students, as well as re...

Spirulina Platensis in Poultry Nutrition

Today, due to the high population of human beings, scientists are increasingly concerned with food shortages and searching for alternative sources of dietary protein, such as algae, insects, and worms. Spirulina represents a superior alternative source, as it has a high nutrient content without toxicity, and can be reared in many c...

The History of Wine as a Medicine

This unique book is the first to describe mankind’s 5,000 year history of using wine as a medicine. Wine is our oldest, most documented and best preventative medicine. It reduces the rate of death from all causes by up to 50% by minimising vascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes by up to 50% and dementia by up to 80%.Th...
