Mites: Ecology, Evolution & Behaviour: Life at a Microscale
More than 40,000 species of mites have been described, and up to 1 million may exist on earth. These tiny arachnids play many ecological roles including acting as vectors of disease, vital players in soil formation, and important agents of biological control. But despite the grand diversity of mites, even trained biologists are often unaware...
Introduction to Focused Ion Beams: Instrumentation, Theory, Techniques and Practice The focused ion beam (FIB) instrument has experienced an intensive period of maturation since its inception. Numerous new techniques and applications have been brought to fruition by the tireless efforts of some very innovative scientists with the foresight to recognize the potential of this upstart apparatus. Over the past few years, the FIB has...
Food Carbohydrate Chemistry
Carbohydrates are major components of foods, accounting for more
than 90% of the dry matter of fruits and vegetables and providing for
70-80% of human caloric intake worldwide (BeMiller and Huber 2008).
Thus, from a quantitative perspective alone, carbohydrates warrant the
attention of food chemists. From the standpoint of food... Toxin: The Cunning of Bacterial Poisons
What do the following have in common: the promise of Botox as the key to everlasting youthful looks; E. coli O157 hamburger disease; a mysterious illness which killed 35 heroin users in 2000; and the assassination by poisoned umbrella-tip of a Bulgarian dissident in the 1970s? The answer is that all of these are caused by toxins, the powerful...
Tidal Power: Harnessing Energy from Water Currents
As the global supply of conventional energy sources, such as fossil fuels, dwindles and becomes more and more expensive, unconventional and renewable sources of energy, such as power generation from water sources, is becoming more and more important. Hydropower has been around for decades, but this book suggests new methods that are...
