The Molecular biology of flowering by Brian R Jordan( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second edition of the book first published in 1993 with a title of "The Molecular Biology of Flowering". It expands and updates the current knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of flowering and shows how molecular biology and the opportunities of biotechnology have made major progress when applied to flowering. It includes new chapters and others substantially revised and updated. Topics such as the evolution of flowers, floral senescence and apomixis are included in this new edition. The 13 chapters of this book are presented in the following sections: external and internal regulation of flowering (3 chapters); floral development (6 chapters); and fertilization and gametophyte development (4 chapters). The book is intended for research workers and advanced students in plant molecular biology and developmental biology, from both pure and applied (agricultural and horticultural) perspectives
Methods for the examination of organismal diversity in soils and sediments( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our lack of knowledge of the organisms dwelling in soils and sediments and of their roles in ecological processes, constitutes a major barrier to understanding how ecosystems operate. This topic has both academic and applied relevance. Thus, in order to forecast the implications of perturbations in a site on both the species present and ecosystem functioning, whether direct (e.g. pollution or physical disturbance) or indirect (e.g. climate change), methods need to be available that can be used to ascertain what organisms are present in a sample. This book provides an authoritative manual of the techniques now used for different organisms. It has been developed as part of UNESCO's contribution to the DIVERSITAS programme and implemented through the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS). Soil organisms and those inhabiting freshwater and marine sediments, from microbes (bacteria, algae, fungi, etc.) to macrofauna (earthworms, nematodes, molluscs, etc.) are all treated. The chapters are arranged by organismal groups and have been written by recognized specialists from the USA and Europe. The book makes a major contribution to the literature and will be indispensable for soil and aquatic biologists and ecologists, as well as those with a broader interest in biodiversity and environmental sciences

The grass genera of the world by Leslie Watson( Book )

3 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern taxonomic treatments of the grass family (Poaceae, Gramineae) recognize about 10,000 species and as many as 785 genera. This book provides detailed descriptions of these 785 genera, the descriptions having been generated by computer from a taxonomic data bank. The authors have devised a grass generic character list to cover all aspects of variation in grasses. This list comprises 496 characters, dealing with nomenclature, general morphology, leaf anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, haploid and 2cDNA values, fruit and embryo structure, seedling form, cytology, intergeneric hybrids, phytogeography and distribution, ecology, pathogens, classification and economic aspects. The work is undoubtedly a definitive reference work, essential for all those with a serious research interest in grasses
Introduction to pandemic influenza by Jonathan Van-Tam( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pandemic influenza is an example of an emerging pathogen that could have, and has had, serious public health consequences. Following three global pandemics in the last 100 years and the recent avian and swine influenza outbreaks, preparedness on national and international scales is of vital importance. With a strong emphasis on practical preparedness issues, and covering areas not dealt with by traditional texts, this book covers influenza epidemiology, vaccinology, virology and immunology, pharmaceutical and public health countermeasures, policy issues, biomathematical modelling, ethics and communication between health professionals and the public and promoting the better understanding of influenza that will be needed to battle future pandemics. Each chapter raises five key questions at the beginning and proceeds to answer them in clear and concise sections, also providing selected papers for further reading and detailing relevant modelling studies
