  • Patient Safety: The PROACT Root Cause Analysis Approach

    As Medicare, Medicaid, and major insurance companies increasingly deny payment for “never events”, it has become imperative that hospitals and doctors develop new ways to prevent these avoidable catastrophes from recurring. Proactive tools such as root cause analysis (RCA), basic failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), and opportunity analysis ...

  • The Root Of The Matter

    In tackling climate change, policy makers often overlook the role of the natural world in regulating greenhouse gases in the atmosphere: specifically, the unique role that forests and peatlands have to play in the battle against rising emissions. Changing approach would significantly reduce the cost of tackling climate change and deliver a variety ...

    Series: Better Farming SeriesInitially published by arrangement with INADES, Institut africain pour le développement économique et social, Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, the Better Farming Series booklets are designed as handbooks for intermediate-level agricultural education and training courses. They may be purchased as a set (45 booklets) or ...

  • Structure and Function of Roots

    These papers summarize the present status of knowledge related to the structure and function of primary root tissues and their cells, as presented at the Fourth International Symposium on the Structure and Functions of Roots. The organizers assembled leading scientists from all over the world. All five subject areas that were presented at the ...

  • Bacterial Wilt Disease

    Jointly published with INRA, Paris.Bacterial wilt, caused by Ralstonia solanacearum, is a very destructive plant disease that attacks over 450 different species, including many of the most important economic crop plants. Often endemic, the bacterium transmits through the soil, penetrates the plant root system and eventually causes irreversible ...

  • Roots

    The root is the organ that functions as the interface between the plant and the earth environment. Many human management practices involving crops, forests and natural vegetation also affect plant growth through the soil and roots. Understanding the morphology and function of roots from the cellular level to the level of the whole root system is ...

  • Iron Nutrition in Plants and Rhizospheric Microorganisms

    This book uses an interdisciplinary approach to provide a comprehensive review on the status of iron nutrition in plants. International scientists discuss research on acquisition of iron by strategy I and strategy II plants. These reviews summarize a variety of plant species and include both laboratory and field observations.Topics covered in this ...

  • Root Physiology: from Gene to Function

    In the last decade, enormous progress has been made on the physiology of plant roots, including on a wide range of molecular aspects. Much of that progress has been captured in the chapters of this book. Breakthroughs have been made possible through integration of molecular and whole-plant aspects. The classical boundaries between physiology, ...

  • Interactions in the Root Environment - An Integrated Approach

    This volume contains a selection of papers presented at the Rothamsted Millennium Conference 'Interactions in the Root Environment - an Integrated Approach'. The meeting brought together scientists from a range of disciplines interested in the relationship between soil biology and plant growth, reflected by the contents of the volume. Topics range ...

  • Rhizosphere: Achievements and Challenges

    Described by Hiltner over a century ago (1904), the rhizosphere is defined as the fraction of soil influenced by plant root activities. This dynamic, complex interface where soil, plant roots and microbes interact is a major hotspot of microbial activity, where numerous subtle molecular processes, as well as multiple feedback events take place, ...

  • Microbial Activity in the Rhizosphere

    The rhizosphere is a very complex environment. The interactions among microorganisms and the plant roots are essential for the nutrition, growth and productivity of the plant. On the other hand, the microorganisms also benefit from their interactions with the plant. Rhizosphere studies are of interest to agriculturists, soil biologists, chemists, ...

  • Plant Surface Microbiology

    Most plants rely on the co-existence with microorganisms: both groups benefit from these symbioses. It has been shown that a large number of specific genes in plants and microorganisms are only activated during these interactions. Of course, various microbes also act as pathogens. Interactions between plants and microorganisms are often located on ...

  • Recreation Ecology

    Introduction. Mechanical forces exerted by various recreation activities and the concept of protection. Major changes in vegetation as a result of wear. Changes in communities and plant species as a result of wear. Changes in communities and plant species as a result of wear. Plant populations and mechanical wear. Mechanical wear and plant ...

  • Recent Advances in Plant Biotechnology

    The primary purpose of this book is to tell the reader what plant biotechnology is all about – progressing from its roots in the basic sciences to its current applications in the biological and agricultural sciences, industry, and medicine. These widespread applications signal the fact that plant biotechnology is increasingly gaining in ...

  • Nutrient Cycling in Terrestrial Ecosystems

    Nutrient Cycling in Terrestrial Ecosystems presents a comprehensive overview of nutrient cycling processes and their importance for plant growth and ecosystem sustainability. The first part of the book presents the fundamentals of nutrient cycling. Topics included are cycling of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulphur and micronutrients. Particular ...

  • Nutrient Acquisition by Plants

    Adaptation and evolution of terrestrial plants depend, to a large extent, on their ability to acquire nutrients. This is a modern and integrative treatment of the mechanisms controlling plant nutrient uptake and how plants respond to changes in the environment. The following key topics are covered: soil nutrient bioavailability; root responses to ...
