  • Enhancing the City.

    Enhancing the City.

    Departing from a survey on the post-modern landscapes of tourism, this book explores the transformations the city has undergone and the way it has become a simulacrum offered to tourists, spectacularised with the aim of increasing its capacity for attraction. The experiences dealt with in the papers of authors belonging to different disciplinary fields, emphasise the city’s tendencies to create “stage-set contexts” of the private type, be it ...

  • Globalization and Urban Implosion

    Globalization and Urban Implosion

    In the past twenty years, globalization has rendered many economic and social urban functions obsolete. Large cities face a form of implosion, which necessitates a rethinking of both contents and containers. This book will mainly concentrate on the latter aspect. Thus, the need to replace old functions with new ones is clear, especially within complex urban areas where the connections between public and private assets are strongest. In this ...

  • Model Based Inference in the Life Sciences

    Model Based Inference in the Life Sciences

    The abstract concept of “information” can be quantified and this has led to many important advances in the analysis of data in the empirical sciences. This text focuses on a science philosophy based on “multiple working hypotheses” and statistical models to represent them. The fundamental science question relates to the empirical evidence for hypotheses in this set—a formal strength of evidence. Kullback-Leibler information is the information ...

  • New Antibody Microarray Tube for Cellular Localization and Signaling Pathways

    New Antibody Microarray Tube for Cellular Localization and Signaling Pathways

    New Antibody Microarray Tube for Cellular Localization and Signaling Pathways describes a new integrated protein biochip system including protein localization, biocomputing and signaling pathways. In the post-genome era, proteomics study for direct analysis of a group of proteins becomes more and more important. Identification of its location often provides crucial information for understanding the function or regulation of a given protein in ...

  • Optimization Methods for a Stakeholder Society

    Optimization Methods for a Stakeholder Society

    For both public and private managers, the book Optimization Methods for a Stakeholder Society is today's key to answer the problem of a sustainable development world. This world has to take into account the meaning of all stakeholders involved and has to reconcile a number of objectives, such as economic growth, employment and preservation of the ecosystem. Traditional methods, such as cost-benefit, are outmoded as they translate all these ...

  • Post-harvest Pathology

    Post-harvest Pathology

    As a collection of papers that includes material presented at the 2008 International Congress for Plant Pathology, this text features research right at the leading edge of the field. The latest findings are particularly crucial in their implications for fruit production; an important market sector where in some areas up to 50 per cent of the crop can be lost after harvest. While post-harvest fruit treatments with fungicides are the most ...

  • Survival Strategies of Annual Desert Plants

    Survival Strategies of Annual Desert Plants

    Annual desert plant species of unrelated taxa in the Negev Desert of Israel have developed complementary sets of adaptations and survival strategies as ecological equivalents with physiological, morphological and anatomical resemblances, in the various stages of their life cycles. After 40 years of research in hot deserts Yitzchak Gutterman provides a comprehensive treatise of such adaptations and strategies. In doing so he covers the following ...

  • Vulnerable Cities:

    Vulnerable Cities:

    All cities are vulnerable. They have economically, socially, institutionally vulnerable urban space. In developing countries, vulnerable urban space can be observed typically as substandard informal settlements such as slums or areas occupied by squatters. At present, slum dwellers comprise one-third of the world's urban population of 3 billion, and it has been estimated that the number of slum dwellers will double in the next 30 years if no eff

  • Wild Urban Woodlands

    Wild Urban Woodlands

    Urban landscapes formerly shaped by heavy industry are evolving all over the world. The associated processes enhance the evolution of a new kind of wilderness. In regions such as the German Ruhrgebiet, vast post-industrial areas have already been re-colonised naturally by forests. These new types of urban woodlands are often overlooked by ecologists, foresters and planners. The book provides a first concise overview of ecological features and ...
