  7. 7. Biotechnologia Agro-Technology: A Philosophical Introduction R. Paul Thompson Cambridge University Press ISBN - 13: 9780521133753 Rok wydania: 7/14/2011 Oprawa: Miękka Cena: 97,65 zł Po rabacie: 83,00 złHumans have been modifying plants and animals for millennia. The dawn of molecular genetics, however, has kindledintense public scrutiny and controversy. Crops, and the food products which include them, have dominated molecularmodification in agriculture. Organisations have made unsubstantiated claims and scare mongering is common. In thistextbook Paul Thompson presents a clear account of the significant issues - identifying harms and benefits, analysing andmanaging risk - which lie beneath the cacophony of public controversy. His comprehensive analysis looks especially atgenetically modified organisms, and includes an explanation of the scientific background, an analysis of ideologicalobjections, a discussion of legal and ethical concerns, a suggested alternative - organic agriculture - and an examination ofthe controversys impact on sub-Saharan African countries. His book will be of interest to students and other readers inphilosophy, biology, biotechnology and public policy. 8 www.abe.pl
  8. 8. Biotechnologia Application of Bacterial Pigments as Colorant Ahmad Springer ISBN - 13: 9783642245190 Rok wydania: 10/1/2011 Oprawa: Miękka Cena: 211,36 zł Po rabacie: 180,00 złEnvironmental concerns regarding continuous use of synthetic dyes saw a revival in the demand for natural dyes as naturaldyes exhibit better biodegradability and generally have a higher compatibility with the environment. However, one of thelimitations on the use of natural dyes or pigments is the low extraction yield factors (a few grams of pigment per kg of driedraw material). Therefore, the exploitation of other biological sources such as fungi, bacteria and cell cultures offersinteresting alternative. Microbial pigments such as from bacterial origins offer the advantage in terms of productioncompared to pigments extracted from vegetables or animals, due to its simple cell and fast culturing technique. This bookoffers interesting insight into initial works carried out to demonstrate the potential use of bacterial pigment as colorant forvarious applications.www.abe.pl 9
  9. 9. Biotechnologia Bacillus thuringiensis Biotechnology Sansinenea Springer ISBN - 13: 9789400730205 Rok wydania: 3/1/2012 Oprawa: Twarda Cena: 634,51 zł Po rabacie: 539,00 złBacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has been used as a biopesticide in agriculture, forestry and mosquito control because of itsadvantages of specific toxicity against target insects, lack of polluting residues and safety to non-target organisms. Theinsecticidal properties of this bacterium are due to insecticidal proteins produced during sporulation. Despite theseecological benefits, the use of Bt biopesticides has lagged behind the synthetic chemicals. Genetic improvement of Btnatural strains, in particular Bt recombination, offers a promising means of improving efficacy and cost-effectiveness of Bt-based bioinsecticide products to develop new biotechnological applications. On the other hand, the different Bacillusspecies have important biotechnological applications; one of them is carried out by producing secondary metabolites, whichare the study object of natural product chemistry. The amazing structural variability of these compounds has attracted thecuriosity of chemists and the biological activities possessed by natural products have inspired the pharmaceutical industry tosearch for lead structures in microbial extracts. Screening of microbial extracts reveals the large structural diversity of naturalcompounds with broad biological activities, such as antimicrobial, antiviral, immunosuppressive, and antitumor activities thatenable the bacterium to survive in its natural environment.

Chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and other agriculturalinputs derived from fossil fuels have increased agricultural production, yet growing awareness and concern over theiradverse effects on soil productivity and environmental quality cannot be ignored. The high cost of these products, thedifficulties of meeting demand for them, and their harmful environmental legacy have encouraged scientists to developalternative strategies to raise productivity, with microbes playing a central role in these efforts. One application is the use ofsoil microbes as bioinoculants for supplying nutrients and/or stimulating plant growth. Some rhizospheric microbes areknown to synthesize plant growth-promoters, siderophores and antibiotics, as well as aiding phosphorous uptake. The last40 years have seen rapid strides made in our appreciation of the diversity of environmental microbes and their possiblebenefits to sustainable agriculture and production. The advent of powerful new methodologies in microbial genetics,molecular biology and biotechnology has only quickened the pace of developments. The vital part played by microbes insustaining our planet’s ecosystems only adds urgency to this enquiry. Culture-dependent microbes already contribute muchto human life, yet the latent potential of vast numbers of uncultured—and thus untouched—microbes, is enormous. Culture-independent metagenomic approaches employed in a variety of natural habitats have alerted us to the sheer diversity ofthese microbes, and resulted in the characterization of novel genes and gene products. Several new antibiotics andbiocatalysts have been discovered among environmental genomes and some products have already been commercialized.Meanwhile, dozens of industrial products currently formulated in large quantities from petrochemicals, such as ethanol... 14 www.abe.pl

As a C4 plant this has very efficientsystem for carbohydrate metabolism through photosynthesis. Crop improvement efforts have concentrated mainly onimproving quality traits, mainly sugar content. This being a complex trait, involves a large number of target genes in themetabolic pathway. The complex polyploid nature of the crop makes it more difficult to pin point the key players in thiscomplex pathway. Despite its importance, little is known about the exact mechanism of sucrose accumulation and itsregulation in sugarcane. Many enzymes have been proposed to have a key role in determining the ultimate sucrose contentin sugarcane. There are evidences to show that some of these like Sucrose Phosphate Synthase (SPS) and SucroseSynthase (SuSy) are encoded by multiple genes that show organ specifity in sugarcane. Especially in a crop like sugarcanewhere the classical techniques are of limited help in elucidating various genetic complexities, molecular techniques can be ofhelp in throwing some light on the grey areas. Molecular marker strategies will be of help in understanding some aspects ofsucrose metabolism and its regulation in this crop, thus complementing the ongoing crop improvement programmes. 16 www.abe.pl

While doing agricultural researchin West Africa in 1996, Dr. Marschner contracted malaria and passed away, and until now this legacy title went unrevised.Despite the passage of time, it remains the definitive reference on plant mineral nutrition. Great progress has been made inthe understanding of various aspects of plant nutrition and in recent years the view on the mode of action of mineralnutrients in plant metabolism and yield formation has shifted. Nutrients are not only viewed as constituents of plantcompounds (constructing material), enzymes and electron transport chains but also as signals regulating plant metabolismvia complex signal transduction networks. In these networks, phytohormones also play an important role. Principles of themode of action of phytohormones and examples of the interaction of hormones and mineral nutrients on source and sinkstrength and yield formation are discussed in this edition. Phytohormones have a role as chemical messengers (internalsignals) to coordinate development and responses to environmental stimuli at the whole plant level.

Although not a trained horticulturalist, his many books were based on practical experience. Hedeveloped a succession of gardens in North London, concentrating on particular types of plants, and his books reflectedthis work, with this book of 1864 and The Fern Garden (1869) being particularly successful. He also wrote on gardendesign, flower arrangement, garden furniture and architecture, and his Rustic Adornments of 1856 (reissued in this series,together with The Fern Garden), is an interesting document of social history. He edited the magazine Floral World until 1875and later The Gardeners Magazine, and was even consulted by the government about potato blight. His engaging and verypersonal style made him a popular forerunner of modern celebrity gardeners, and set a fashion for highly decorative andornamental gardens.www.abe.pl 37

A plethora of studies have shown that aquatic organisms frommost taxa and functional groups respond to minute concentrations of chemical substances released by other organisms.However, our knowledge of this "chemical network" is still negligible. Chemical interactions can be divided into two largersub-areas based on the function of the chemical substance. First, there are interactions where chemical substances aretoxic to other organisms and are used as a defence against consumers (including both herbivores and predators) or aweapon against competitors (allelopathy). Second, chemical substances may be used as a source for information of theenvironment 42 www.abe.pl

Biotic and abiotic stress are aresult of climate change. Abiotic stress is caused by primary and secondary stresses which are an impediment to plantproductivity. Prolonged exposure to these stresses results in altered metabolism and damage to biomolecules. Plants evolvedefense mechanisms to withstand these stresses, e.g. synthesis of osmolytes, osmoprotectants, and antioxidants. Stressresponsive genes and gene products including expressed proteins are implicated in conferring tolerance to the plant. Thisvolume will provide the reader with a wide spectrum of information, including vital references. It also provides information asto how phytoconstituents, hormones and plant associated microbes help the plants to tolerate the stress.

He was the first President of the British Ecological Society and the first chair of the Field StudiesCouncil. His work as a botanist is considered seminal and he is recognized as one of the giants of ecology throughout theworld. Ecology underpins the principles and practices of modern conservation and the maintenance of biodiversity. Itexplains the causes of, and offers solutions to, problems of climate change. Yet ecology is a young science, barely 100years old. Its origins lie in phytogeography, the naming and mapping of plants. Shaping Ecology is a book about a multi-faceted man whose friends included Bertrand Russell, Marie Stopes, Julian Huxley, GM Trevelyan, and Solly Zuckerman.Historical context is provided by Tansleys family for his parents moved in the Fabian-socialist world of John Ruskin andOctavia Hill, both instrumental in the foundation of the National Trust. While Britain was relatively slow to protect its greenspaces and wildlife, it did establish in 1913 the first professional Ecological Society in the world. Tansley was its President.Organising the British Vegetation Committee and initiating a series of International Phytogeographic Excursions, he changedphytogeography into ecology.www.abe.pl 57
