  • Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    The rapid progress made on somatic embryogenesis and its prospects for potential applications in improving woody plants prompted us to edit this book initially in three volumes, and now to add two more volumes. The editors were all convinced that such a treatise was needed and would be extremely useful to researchers and students. This Volume ...

  • Amino Acid Metabolism And Accumulation In `Sauvignon Blanc` Grapes

    Amino acids are important compounds that occupy a pivotal position in grapevine metabolism and play a major role in the biological functions of fermentative microbes. The biochemical composition of the grape berry can be hugely varied and is the major determinant of wine quality through yeast growth and flavour/aroma metabolism. Manipulation of ...

  • Plant Polyphenols: Synthesis, Properties, Significance

    Written to provide critical reviews and summaries of current research on vegetable tannins and related plant phenolic compounds, this book highlights the biological and commercial significance of plant polyphenols. Leading scientists address a broad range of topics, including: enzymes in the biosynthesis of hydrolizable tannins - biosynthesis ...

  • Slayers, Saviors, Servants and Sex

    This is a book for the general reader about the world of fungi. We should know more about fungi. They have killed us, saved us and served us since before written records began.

After a general introduction to the study of Ephemeroptera, the mayflies, it provides illustrated keys for the identification of all species in South America that were described by the ...

  • Micropropagation of Woody Trees and Fruits

    The key technology for biomass production of woody species is propagation via micropropagation. Recent development of in vitro culture techniques has made it possible to commercially propagate useful trees, both forest and fruit trees. In this book comprehensive information is provided on micropropagation of economically important forest and fruit ...

  • Integrated Management of Diseases Caused by Fungi, Phytoplasma and Bacteria

The first Section includes stone fruit and apple diseases, grapevine and fruit crops phytoplasma, Phytophthora on citrus, chestnut diseases, esca complex on grapevine and Rosellinia necatrix root rot. The second Section includes models for potato late ...

  • Lost Sex

    Sex is the queen of problems in evolutionary biology. Generations of researchers have investigated one of the last remaining evolutionary paradoxes: why sex exists at all. Given that sexual reproduction is costly from an evolutionary point of view, one could wonder why not all animals and plants reproduce asexually. Dozens of contemporary ...
