Life Sciences Improving Crop Resistance to Abiotic Stress 2-Volume Set Edited by Narendra Tuteja, International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, New Delhi, India; Sarvajeet Singh Gill, MD University, Rohtak, India; Antonio F. Tiburcio, University of Barcelona, Spain and Renu Tuteja, ICGEB, New Delhi, India Abiotic stress, such as high salinity and drought, is the most common challenge for sustainable food production in large parts of the world, particularly in emerging countries. The ongoing and expected global climate change will further increase these challenges in many areas, making improved stress resistance of crops a key topic for the 21st century. Proteomics, genomics and metabolomics are methods allowing for the rapid and complete analysis of the complete physiology of crop plants. This knowledge, in turn, is the prerequisite for improvements of crop resistance against abiotic stress through genetic engineering or traditional breeding methods. The latest update on improving crop resistance against abiotic stress is presented by a well-balanced international mix of contributors from industry and academia. This covers work with individual crop plants while also including studies of model organisms such as Arabidopsis that can then be applied to specific crop plants. The update covers: • An introduction into plant abiotic stress response • Methods to improve plant abiotic stress response • Species-specific case studies. This multi-volume reference work is a long awaited must-have for every scientist working in the fields of basic and applied crop science, plant physiology and plant biotechnology. AUDIENCE: Agricultural scientists, students of agriculture, plant breeders, plant physiologists, botanists, biotechnologists.

Handbook of Food Process Design 2-Volume Set Edited by Jasim Ahmed, Director of Bio-polymer and Nano-packaging at Polymer Source Inc., Canada and Mohammad Shafiur Rahman, Sultan Qaboos University, Sultanate of Oman In the 21st Century, processing food is no longer a simple or straightforward matter. Ongoing advances in manufacturing have placed new demands on the design and methodology of food processes. A highly interdisciplinary science, food process design draws upon the principles of chemical and mechanical engineering, microbiology, chemistry, nutrition and economics, and is of central importance to the food industry. Process design is at the heart of food engineering, and is concerned with taking new concepts in food design and developing them through production and eventual consumption. The Handbook of Food Process Design is a major new two-volume work aimed at food engineers and the wider food industry. Comprising 46 original chapters written by a host of leading international food scientists, engineers, academics and systems specialists, the book is the most comprehensive guide to food process design ever published. Starting from first principles, the book provides a complete account of food process designs, including heating and cooling, pasteurization, sterilization, refrigeration, drying, crystallization, extrusion and separation. Mechanical operations, such as mixing, agitation, size reduction, extraction and leaching processes are fully documented. Novel process designs such as irradiation, high-pressure processing, ultrasound, ohmic heating and pulsed UV-light are also presented. Food packaging processes are considered, and chapters on food quality, safety and commercial imperatives explore the role of process design in the broader context of food production and consumption. AUDIENCE: Food engineers, researchers, product and process developers and other food industry professionals, students and researchers working in food science and technology, and biochemical engineering.

Now you can provide instant access to quality content in the new age of handheld technology. Interlibrary Loans – our electronic licence terms allow interlibrary loans of an individual document from a reference work for the purpose of research or private study. This enables libraries to access a wider range of reference materials and make cost savings by sharing resources with the wider library community. No DRM restrictions – authorised users can download, view, print, copy or save single copies of individual articles or entries in reference works for their own use. This gives your library users ways that best serve their research methods. Usage reports for online reference works are compliant with the latest release of the COUNTER Code of Practice. They are made available via the Book 2 report and are also compatible with the SUSHI protocol.
