Plant Growth and Climate
Plant Growth and Climate

Evidence grows daily of the changing climate and its impact on plants and animals. Plant function is inextricably linked to climate and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. On the shortest and smallest scales, the climate affects the plant’s immediate environment and so directly influences physiological processes. At larger scales,...

IEEE Recommended Practice for the Design of Reliable Industrial and Commercial Power Systems
IEEE Recommended Practice for the Design of Reliable Industrial and Commercial Power Systems
The design of reliable industrial and commercial power systems is of considerable interest to many people. Prior to 1962, a qualitative viewpoint was taken when attempting to achieve this objective. The need for a quantitative approach was first recognized in the early 1960s when a small group of pioneers led by W. H. Dickinson...

Mites: Ecology, Evolution & Behaviour: Life at a Microscale
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
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.

Food Carbohydrate Chemistry
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
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
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...
