Bacteriocins: Ecology and Evolution

Bacteriocins: Ecology and Evolution, 9783540366034 (3540366032), Springer, 2006
Microbes produce an extraordinary array of defense systems. These include bacteriocins, a class of antimicrobial molecules with narrow killing spectra, produced by bacteria. The book describes the diversity and ecological role of bacteriocins of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, presenting a new classification scheme for the former and a state-of-the-art look at the role of bacteriocins in bacterial communication. It discusses the molecular evolution of colicins and colicin-like bacteriocins, and provides a contemporary overview of archaeocins, bacteriocin-like antimicrobials produced by archaebacteria. Furthermore, various modeling (in silico) studies elucidate the role of bacteriocins in microbial community dynamics and fitness, delving into rock-paper-scissors competition and the counter-intuitive survival of the weakest.

The book makes compelling reading for a multi-faceted scientific audience, including those working in the fields of biodiversity and biotechnology, notably in the human and animal health domain.

Almost Periodic Solutions of Impulsive Differential Equations (Lecture Notes in Mathematics, Vol. 2047)
Almost Periodic Solutions of Impulsive Differential Equations (Lecture Notes in Mathematics, Vol. 2047)
Impulsive differential equations are suitable for the mathematical simulation of evolutionary processes in which the parameters undergo relatively long periods of smooth variation followed by a short-term rapid changes (i.e., jumps) in their values. Processes of this type are often investigated in various fields of...

Heterogeneous Agent Systems
Heterogeneous Agent Systems
Software agents are the latest advance in the trend toward smaller, modular pieces of code, where each module performs a well-defined, focused task or set of tasks. Programmed to interact with and provide services to other agents, including humans, software agents act autonomously with prescribed backgrounds, beliefs, and operations. Systems of...

Therapy After Terror: 9/11, Psychotherapists, and Mental Health
"A licensed, clinical social worker, Seeley (anthropology, Columbia Univ.) offers a riveting, comprehensive examination of the work and experiences of psychotherapists following 9/11. [...] At the heart of the book is Seeley's discussion of "trauma contagion", a phenomenon she distinguishes from vicarious trauma. [...] Integrating...
