Protein Nanotechnology: Protocols, Instrumentation, and Applications (Methods in Molecular Biology)
Protein Nanotechnology: Protocols, Instrumentation, and Applications (Methods in Molecular Biology)
This third edition volume expands on the previous editions with updated approaches and techniques used to study protein nanotechnology and the future of nanomaterial compositions. This book is organized into Three Parts: Part One looks at recombinant protein expression in insect cells, and methods to produce molecular motors,...
Pesticides: A Toxic Time Bomb in Our Midst
Pesticides: A Toxic Time Bomb in Our Midst
The writing of this book came about through a serendipitous circumstance. I wrote a book dealing with child labor in the United States, published three years earlier, containing a chapter that included a description of the hazards migrant farmworkers and their children face, not the least of which was exposure to pesticides. While mentioning the...
Biotechnology and Agricultural Development: Transgenic Cotton, Rural Institutions and Resource-poor Farmers
Biotechnology and Agricultural Development: Transgenic Cotton, Rural Institutions and Resource-poor Farmers

This book addresses the continuing controversy over the potential impact of genetically modified (GM) crops in developing countries. Supporters of the technology claim it offers one of the best hopes for increasing agricultural production and reducing rural poverty, while opponents see it as an untested intervention that will bring corporate...

Behaviour and Physiology of Root Herbivores, Volume 45 (Advances in Insect Physiology)
Behaviour and Physiology of Root Herbivores, Volume 45 (Advances in Insect Physiology)

Drawing on expertise from around the world, this volume identifies our current state of knowledge about the behavior and physiology of root herbivores. In particular, this work describes prevailing concepts and theories based on historical and current literature and identifies what new technologies and approaches are available to researchers...

Swarm Intelligence: From Natural to Artificial Systems (Santa Fe Institute Studies on the Sciences of Complexity)
Swarm Intelligence: From Natural to Artificial Systems (Santa Fe Institute Studies on the Sciences of Complexity)
Social insects--ants, bees, termites, and wasps--can be viewed as powerful problem-solving systems with sophisticated collective intelligence. Composed of simple interacting agents, this intelligence lies in the networks of interactions among individuals and between individuals and the environment. A fascinating subject, social insects are also a...
IT Security Management: IT Securiteers - Setting up an IT Security Function (Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering)
IT Security Management: IT Securiteers - Setting up an IT Security Function (Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering)

In 1862, the gardener James Bateman sent several specimens of the Christmas orchid to Charles Darwin. This orchid was first planted in Britain in 1855 and it did not blossom until 1857. It had been discovered several decades before by the French botanist Louis-Marie Aubert du Petit-Thouars in Madagascar in 1822. The most significant...

Biodiversity and Insect Pests: Key Issues for Sustainable Management
Biodiversity and Insect Pests: Key Issues for Sustainable Management

Biodiversity offers great potential for managing insect pests. It provides resistance genes and anti-insect compounds; a huge range of predatory and parasitic natural enemies of pests; and community ecology-level effects operating at the local and landscape scales to check pest build-up. This book brings together world leaders in theoretical,...

Insect Resistance Management, Second Edition: Biology, Economics, and Prediction
Insect Resistance Management, Second Edition: Biology, Economics, and Prediction

Neither pest management nor resistance management can occur with only an understanding of pest biology. For years, entomologists have understood, with their use of economic thresholds, that at least a minimal use of economics was necessary for proper integrated pest management. IRM is even more complicated and dependent on understanding and...

Area-Wide Control of Insect Pests: From Research to Field Implementation
Area-Wide Control of Insect Pests: From Research to Field Implementation
The world population is still growing at an alarming rate, requiring ever increasing productivity and less waste in agriculture to cope with the increasing demands to satisfy food security for all humans. Alleviation of poverty is in many countries hampered by a myriad of insect pests that cause enormous economic...
Wonder World Under Water
Wonder World Under Water
Nearly three-quarters of our earth is covered by water. Yet we, living on land, usually know more about land creatures than our aquatic denizens. We have many kinds of watery environments, from the fast, clear, cold streams of the Himalaya to the placid rivers of the plains, and natural as well as man-made lakes and ponds. Moreover, we have a long...
Encyclopedia of Entomology
Encyclopedia of Entomology

The Encyclopedia of Entomology brings together the expertise of more than 450 distinguished entomologists from 40 countries to provide a worldwide overview of insects and their close relatives. Combining the basic science of an introductory text with accurate, comprehensive detail, the Encyclopedia is a reliable...

Insect Outbreaks Revisited
Insect Outbreaks Revisited

The abundance of insects can change dramatically from generation to generation; these generational changes may occur within a growing season or over a period of years. Such extraordinary density changes or "outbreaks" may be abrupt and ostensibly random, or population peaks may occur in a more or less cyclic fashion. They can be...
