  • Handbook of Poultry Feed from Waste

    Handbook of Poultry Feed from Waste

    The aim of this book is to help create new feedstuffs for poultry and farm animals from the agro-industry and to mobilize the neglected waste as a feedstuff to lower the price of animal products such as eggs, white and red meat, milk, etc. Furthermore, this book aims to contribute to the campaign against hunger in the developing world and to reduce the competition between animals and human beings for cereals and pulses. Accordingly the ...

  • Management of Disease in Wild Mammals

    Management of Disease in Wild Mammals

    Wildlife populations may be a significant source of infection for humans and domestic animals while in some cases being themselves endangered by pathogens. The development of sustainable approaches to the management of wildlife diseases is fundamental to the protection of human health, agriculture, and endangered species. Managing disease in free-ranging wild mammals presents serious challenges, however, because of their often complex ecology ...

  • Molecular Mechanisms of Plant and Microbe Coexistence

    Molecular Mechanisms of Plant and Microbe Coexistence

    Molecular Mechanisms of Plant and Microbe Coexistence presents studies on the complex and manifold interactions of plants and microbes at the population, genomics and proteomics level.The role of soil microbial diversity in enhancing plant health and plant microbe beneficial symbioses is discussed. Microbial communities are shown in the light of evolution. Main topics include genome coexistence and the functional genomics and proteomics of plant

  • Plant Ecology

    Plant Ecology

    This textbook covers Plant Ecology from the molecular to the global level. It covers the following areas in unprecedented breadth and depth:- Molecular ecophysiology (stress physiology: light, temperature, oxygen deficiency, drought, salt, heavy metals, xenobiotica and biotic stress factors)- Autecology (whole plant ecology: thermal balance, water, nutrient, carbon relations)- Ecosystem ecology (plants as part of ecosystems, element cycles, biod

  • Seasonal Landscapes

    Seasonal Landscapes

    Seasonality is so obvious that we very often forget about it when doing landscape research. Seasonality is the interface where humans and nature really interact. Seasonality is expressed both in the natural rhythms of the landscape as well as in human lifestyles. Seasonality creates varying patterns of use and appears in spatial practices, paintings, human behaviour. Also, seasonality itself changes together with societal changes – in ...
