  • Industrial Biotransformations - a user-friendly and application-oriented up-to-date overview of one-step biotransformations of industrial importance.
    The data conferring each process is arranged in a convenient format to survey so that the processes can easily be compared. Each set of data is accompanied by key literature citations. As far as flow sheets of the processes are available, these are given reduced to their significant elements. An extensive index classified by substrates, products, enzymes, and companies provides direct access to each process organized in the order of enzyme classes. The reader will find all significant parameters characterizing the biotransformation itself and the process.

  • A detailed investigation of Phosphatocopina Fossils and Strata, Number 49: Morphology, Ontogeny, and Phylogeny of the Phosphatocopina (Crustacea) from the Upper Cambrian Orsten of Sweden presents a detailed look at Phosphatocopina through the rigorous lens of modern scientific study. Fully examined here in study form, this monograph details methods, materials, systematics, phylogenetic analysis and more to bolster discussion and back analyses of comparative morphology. Extensive figures and photos clarify qualitative data, while detailed explanation of analysis methods provide a firm foundation for conclusions and future research.

  • The whole range of biocatalysis, from a firm grounding in theoretical concepts to in-depth coverage of practical applications and future perspectives.
    The book not only covers reactions, products and processes with and from biological catalysts, but also the process of designing and improving such biocatalysts.
    One unique feature is that the fields of chemistry, biology and bioengineering receive equal attention, thus addressing practitioners and students from all three areas.

  • This book gives the reader an up-to-date, clear and logical idea of what caring for parkinsonian patients entails - a challenge that clinicians will face for many years to come. It is split into three sections: Section 1: A compilation of the major brain lesions typically seen in PD Section 2: Treatment options in PD Section 3: 25 cases designed to test the reader and the practical application of the information supplied in the other sections.

  • As an integral component of environmental policy, it has become essential to regulate and monitor toxic substances. Past emphasis has been primarily on analytical approaches to the detection of specific, targeted contaminants, thus allowing chemical characterisation. However, toxicity testing or biological assessment is necessary for ecotoxicological evaluation, and this offers marked benefits and advantages that complement chemical analysis.
    Key issues to be addressed include identification of pertinent tests, reproducibility and robustness of these tests, and cost considerations.This book examines these issues and describes and explains the approaches that have been developed for environmental toxicity evaluations. Advantages, benefits and drawbacks of the strategies and methods are highlighted.
    Directed equally at ecotoxicologists, industrial chemists, analytical chemists and environmental consultants, this book is written in a way that will prove helpful to both new and experienced practitioners.

  • In Transcultural Communication, Andreas Hepp provides an accessible and engaging introduction to the exciting possibilities and inevitable challenges presented by the proliferation of transcultural communication in our mediatized world.

  • This is the second edition of the successful textbook written by the prize-winning scientist Andreas Ziegler, former President of the German Chapter of the International Biometric Society, and Inke Konig, who has been teaching the subject over many years.
    The book gives a comprehensive introduction into the relevant statistical methods in genetic epidemiology. The second edition is thoroughly revised, partly rewritten and includes now chapters on segregation analysis, twin studies and estimation of heritability. The book is ideally suited for advanced students in epidemiology, genetics, statistics, bioinformatics and biomathematics.
    Like in the first edition the book contains many problems and solutions and it comes now optionally with an e-learning course created by Friedrich Pahlke. This e-learning course has been developed to complement the book. Both provide a unique support tool for teaching the subject.

  • Urban tree management is the key basis for greener cities of the future. It is a practical discipline which includes tree selection, planting, care and protection and the overall management of trees as a collective resource. Urban Tree Management aims to raise awareness for the positive impacts and benefits of city trees and for their importance to city dwellers. It describes their advantages and details their effects on quality of urban life and well-being - aspects that are increasingly important in these times of progressing urbanisation. With this book you will learn: fundamentals, methods and tools of urban tree management state of the art in the fields of urban forestry and tree biology positive effects and uses of urban trees features, requirements and selection criteria for urban trees conditions and problems of urban trees governance and management aspects environmental education programs. Edited by the leading expert Dr Andreas Roloff, Urban Tree Management is an excellent resource for plant scientists, horticulturists, dendrologists, arborists and arboriculturists, forestry scientists, city planners, parks department specialists and landscape architects. It will be an essential addition to all students and libraries where such subjects are taught.
