Ecological genetics : design, analysis, and application by Andrew Lowe( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The use of molecular markers has revolutionized ecological genetics in the last 20 years. The fundamental problem facing new researchers is which of the many markers should be used and how the resulting data should then be analyzed. Until now, these guidelines have been hidden away in specialist journals. Ecological Genetics addresses this fundamental problem in clear, accessible language, suitable for upper-level undergraduates through to research-level professionals." "Within each chapter the potentially suitable molecular markers are described and the resulting data from each type of marker are discussed, including the underlying concepts of the various modes of analysis. These are illustrated with examples from both the plant and animal kingdoms." "Researchers embarking on molecular approaches to ecological genetics (for instance, final-year undergraduates and new postgraduates) will find the book essential, and more experienced researchers will also find it of interest."--Jacket
What have plants ever done for us? : Western civilization in fifty plants by Stephen Harris( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When did the British Government become the world's largest drugs pusher? What tree is frequently used to treat cancer? Which everyday condiment is the most widely traded spice on the planet? Plants are an indispensable part of our everyday life. From the coffee bush and grass for cattle which give us milk for our cappuccinos to the rubber tree which produces tyres for our cars, our lives are inextricably linked to the world of plants. Taking us on a chronological journey, Stephen Harris identifies fifty plants that have been key to the development of the Western world, discussing trade, politics, medicine, travel and chemistry along the way. Plants have provided paper and ink, chemicals that could kill or cure, vital sustenance and stimulants. Some, such as barley, have been staples from earliest times; others, such as oil palm, are newcomers to Western industry. Moreover, with time, uses change: beets, which have been used variously as a treatment for leprosy, source of sugar and animal feed, are now showing potential as biofuels. What may the future hold for mandrake or woad? We remain dependent on plants for our food, our fuel and our medicines. Their effects on our lives, as the stories in this wide-ranging and engaging book demonstrate, continue to be profound, and often unpredictable
Seeds, sex and civilization : how the hidden life of plants has shaped our world by Peter Thompson( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a scientific detective story with heroes and heroines following clues and, eventually, finding answers. The history of man's relation to seeds is the history of civilization. To many of us seeds mean little more than tiny objects in paper packets, but we should also think of rice, wheat, coffee, nuts, peas, beans, chocolate and cotton. The author, who was head of the physiology department at Kew Gardens and laid the foundations for the Millennium Seed Bank, unfolds the fascinating story of how, after centuries long investigations, we have finally discovered what seeds do and how they work. The book also brings to life the people who have accumulated our knowledge, eccentrics, explorers, amateurs and highly dedicated professionals. Some are well known, such as Charles Darwin and Gregor Mendel; others, such as the Russian geneticist Nikolai Vavilov, less so. There are violent confrontations, miraculous successes and heart-rending failures. But the seeds also have a story and appear to have personalities, ambitions and "stratagems" of their own. The book concludes with a chapter by Stephen Harris on current debates about genetically modified crops, seed conservation and plant ownership. Seeds have been hugely important throughout history. Today, how we treat them is of global significance."--Publisher

Plants, health and healing : on the interface of ethnobotany and medical anthropology( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plants have cultural histories, as their applications change over time and with place. Some plant species have affected human cultures in profound ways, such as the stimulants tea and coffee from the Old World, or coca and quinine from South America. Even though medicinal plants have always attracted considerable attention, there is surprisingly little research on the interface of ethnobotany and medical anthropology. This volume, which brings together (ethno- )botanists, medical anthropologists and a clinician, makes an important contribution towards filling this gap. It emphasises that plant

The Trust : the classic example of Soviet manipulation by Stephen Harris( )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russian groups who were committed anti-Bolsheviks; the two most important victims were Sydney Reilly (Britain's Master spy) and Boris Savinkov (Kerensky's War Minister and a former terrorist under the Czars). The perceived threat of external hostility from the emigre's and the Capitalist states was not another example of the legendary Russian paranoia. It was real and was seen as a life and death struggle by some of the leading personalities on both sides. The Trust thus came into being from various ideas and plans presented to Lenin. Lenin always worried about the threat of counter-revolution, especially from the emigre groups

Grasses by Stephen Harris( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people have memories of playing on well-manicured lawns or running across the flat green surface of a local park, but we often don't think of grasses as something we consume. Indeed, grasses include four species-wheat, rice, maize, and sugar-that provide sixty percent of human calorie intake, and we become more and more dependent on these as the world's population increases. In this book, Stephen Harris explains the history of our relationship with these vital plants from the end of the last Ice Age to the present day. Combining biology, sociology, and cultural history, Gr
