William J. Warren-Hicks EcoStat Inc., Mebane, North Carolina, USA Central Science Laboratory, Defra Sand Hutton, York, UK

Currently, ecological risk assessments for pesticides use largely deterministic methods, yet there is a growing trend from industries and governments toward more quantifiable results using probabilistic methods. Identifying which methods are most appropriate for pesticide assessment, this book explores their suitability as a common protocol for general use. The authors discuss classical and Bayesian approaches, various types of Monte Carlo analysis, first order error analysis, probability bounds analysis, interval analysis, and fuzzy mathematics. They then examine how these methods can be used in assessments for other environmental contaminants.

Crippen International, Inc., Anna, Texas, USA

Offering operational tools for decision makers based on the knowledge of the nature of soil, this book’s discussion of the topics is not only technical and operational, but also in-depth and didactic. It is useful as a valid complement for students majoring in subjects that involve soil use, management, and conservation. It evaluates a wide choice of possible soil and land evaluation methods and emphasizes knowledge of the relationships existing between the physical characteristics of lands, particularly those of soils, and the requirements of specific uses.

Seed conditioning removes undesirable material including debris and stray seeds from selected raw harvested seed, so as to create planting seed that delivers high yielding crops. This two-volume set describes the essential information needed to understand this process and the machinery involved.

Mycorrhizal Biotechnology Edited by

Bill R. Gregg Seed Industry Development & Conditioning Specialist, Starkville, Misissippi, USA

Devarajan Thangadurai, Carlos Alberto Busso, and Mohamed Hijri

Gary L. Billups

Several studies have demonstrated that mycorrhizal associations play a vital role in plant nutrition. They greatly increase the efficiency of nutrient and water uptake, enhance resistance to pathogens, and buffer plant species against several environmental stresses and drought resistance. Mycorrhizae also improve plant growth and survival in soils contaminated by heavy metals. This book emphasizes the biotechnological application of mycorrhizae to promote the production of food while maintaining ecologically and economically sustainable production systems.

Little public information exists on the physical properties and conditioning requirements of seed, and for many companies, the production, cleaning, and handling of seed is a closely held secret. Gathering scattered information into a single source reference, this book provides readers with record formats to build their own records of successful and unsuccessful experiments at removing specific contaminants from the desired crop seed. The ability to track the parameters of various attempts will enable producers to save time, shrink costs, and mitigate seed losses.

This compendium provides a detailed review of animal and plant fossil behavior in both terrestrial and aquatic environments. It includes a wide range of subjects and time periods and also compares patterns of behavior and co-evolution in the past with those of the present-day descendants. There is further discussion on how to evaluate the rates of evolution of behavior and co-evolution at various taxonomic levels. Keeping Boucot’s trademark, easy-to-read style, the text includes many new findings in amber previously unpublished as well as reports not easily accessible.

Addressing the evolution of key innovations in metazoans, this challenging book summarizes the more recent results in phylogenetics and developmental biology. Divided into three sections, the first considers the phylogenetic issues involving this area of the tree of life and the elucidation of those relationships that continue to trouble taxonomists. The second section considers the developmental biology of metazoan evolution including the development of the nervous system, sensory organs, and physiological maturation. Part Three focuses on the evolution of pattern and process in the Metazoa.

Providing a conceptual framework that promotes a deeper understanding of more complex topics, the authors examine levels of organization from the subcellular, cellular, and morphological standpoints, discuss physiology, biochemistry, culture methods, and finally, examine the role of algae in human society. The book supplies carefully selected literature references that direct researchers to an abundance of precise details from original sources.

Rather than focusing on the pathological histology of fish, this volume fills a gap in the literature by focusing on normal fish histology. A general reference guide, it provides an extensive set of histological images of fish, discussing approximately 40 species. The book presents histology as a discipline, including its methodology and techniques and its goals of investigating the structure and function of tissue samples. By histologically examining the normal physiology of fish tissue, scientists can gain insight into signs of disease not easily recognized on gross examination.

State University of New York at Buffalo, USA

Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Computer Science & Data Analysis

Jennifer R. Cochran

To harness the high-throughput potential of DNA microarray technology, it is crucial that the analysis stages of the process are decoupled from the requirements of operator assistance. This book presents an automatic system for microarray image processing to make this decoupling a reality. The proposed system integrates and extends traditional analytical-based methods and custom-designed novel algorithms. The authors cover many new approaches for processing microarray images, such as novel subgrid detection, feature identification, and graph-cutting techniques. They include details of the algorithmic processes along with an analysis of the processes performance over real-world microarray image data.

The emerging use of the computational design approach as a means of engineering proteins with novel functions has led to widespread usage of computational analysis in protein engineering at large. However, because the structure and function of protein molecules are coupled at the molecular level, many critical questions are left unanswered and many of the intricate design rules unclear. This book de-mystifies computational analysis by providing a lucid description of computation’s role in protein engineering and tracing the history of protein design.

It is of growing interest to chemists and has been applied to problems in such areas as food quality control, chemical reaction monitoring, metabolite analysis, QSAR/QSPR, and toxicity. Requiring minimal mathematical background, this easy-to-understand book presents the theory of SVMs. It includes simple examples of chemical and OMICS data to demonstrate the performance of SVMs and compares SVMs to other traditional classification/regression methods.
