8 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author presents a basic introduction to the world of genetic engineering. Some twenty years have passed since the first recombinant DNA molecules were constructed at Stanford University. Genetic engineering is now a reality and this book simply and concisely describes to the student the full range of enabling technologies available. The book takes the reader from basic molecular biology through to chapters dealing with the principles behind working with nucleic acids, together with cloning strategies and the tools of the trade. The author discusses the applications of genetic engineering in a clear and engaging manner." "The book is essential reading for first and second year undergraduates, as well as being of interest to sixth form students and their teachers. Medical students and general practitioners will also find this book useful for background information."--Jacket

The economic importance of insects by Dennis S Hill( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a fresh, broad look at insects and their relationships to humans and human activities. The entire field of applied entomology is covered and both insect and mite pests are presented in medical, veterinary, domestic, and agricultural contexts. The many benefits of insects to humans are also emphasized, especially their value as plant pollinators and as biocontrol agents which keep so many pest populations suppressed. <br/> The book has been produced in conjunction with the Institute of Biology, London, UK and its coverage is international. Many of the author's personal observations are included, originating from his many years experience as an applied entomologist in South East Asia, East Africa and Britain. The book is also wonderfully illustrated with over 180 line drawings, many of which are from the author's personal collection. There are also over 100 photographs from all parts of the world. <br/> The Economic Importance of Insects will prove an invaluable source of information for undergraduate and postgraduate students of applied entomology and acarology, pest control, agricultural science and medical and veterinary entomology
