When the sciences and the arts begin to work together, a powerful force is created. This anthology was founded upon the belief that words have the power to change. Through poetry, photography and art, creatives across the globe, from the age of 8 to 80, have united to express the urgency of global warming, facing the facts but never losing hope. A new metaphor is as useful in the climate fight as a new solar panel design. We need poets engaged in this battle, and this volume is proof that in fact they're in the vanguard! - Bill McKibben, Schumann Distinguished Scholar at Middlebury College and leader of the anti-carbon campaign group 350.org. An anthology for our time Poetry and Photography Edited by Isabelle Kenyon Foreword by Dr Michelle Cain, Science and Policy Research Associate, Oxford University Featuring Emily Gellard Photography and a commissioned poem by Helen Mort
Silicon Biology explains in detail the role of silicon in plants and animals. It discusses the importance of silicon in biology and medicine, and how the compounds play a significant role in different types of physiological, immunological and pathological processes. Subsequent chapters throw light on the concept of microelectronics and neurons, with a detailed explanation of Computational Micromodel for Epigenetic Mechanisms and Parallel Biological Computing Model.
Quantum Biology discusses the applications of mechanics and theoretical chemistry to biological objects and the related problems. It introduces the concept of migratory patterns, followed by a detailed discussion of quantum phenomenon in biomolecules, and a formal language for molecular biology. Physical properties of biological entities are further explained to ensure a comprehensive coverage of the topic.
Stem Cells: The Beginning of Regenerative Medicine deals with the significance of stem cells for the manufacture of regenerative medicines along with the techniques and approaches involved. It comprises future perspective of stem cells and tissue engineering together with the opportunities and challenges associated with it. It provides the reader with fundamental knowledge of stem cell technology in order to better understand its application in the production of regenerative medicines, the use of these regenerative medicines for kidney and to deal with the challenges associated with the application of stem cells. This book also discusses engineered stem cell niche matrices for rotator cuff tendon regenerative engineering, application of nanomaterials in stem cell regenerative medicine of orthopedic surgery, regenerative therapeutic potential of adipose stromal cells in early stage diabetic retinopathy and cryopreserved dental pulp tissues of exfoliated deciduous teeth is a feasible stem cell resource for regenerative medicine.
Waste Management and the Food Industry gives an introduction to the food industry and explains it as a growing sector. It talks about the waste generation in food industries and the sustainability that can be achieved in such industries. It also talks about the technology used in the utilization and treatment of food and the optimization of manufacturing to bring reduction in waste generation in the food processing. Also discussed in the book is the consumer interest in waste management and co-product recovery, the environmental impact of waste generation in food industries, the issues and challenges in food waste separation and the trends and future of the food industry.
Proteomics in Food Science gives the readers an introduction to the proteomics and the related studies and provides the readers with an explanation of the concepts and techniques that are used in proteomics. The book talks about the relation of proteomics with plant food sources and the animal food sources. The book relates proteomics to aquaculture in detail and further talks about the various technologies employed in the food processing. Also discussed in the book is the perspective on safety of food and its relation to proteomics, the systems biology in nutrition research, the application of proteomics in food science and technology and the prospects of proteomics in the future.
Mitochondrial DNA: The Works takes into account the overview of mitochondria along with its dna and inheritance. It also comprises the interest aspects and glimpses of research related to the mitochondrial dna. It provides the reader with the insights of mitochondrial dna and its interesting aspects so as to understand the advances in methods for reducing mitochondrial dna disease by replacing or manipulating the mitochondrial genome, reaction of human cells in the absence of mitochondrial dna and variants of mitochondrial dna in case of obesity. This book also discusses about regulation of mitochondrial genome inheritance by autophagy and ubiquitin-proteasome system: implications for health, fitness, and fertility, advances in methods for reducing mitochondrial dna disease by replacing or manipulating the mitochondrial genome, mitochondrial dna variants in obesity and research on plants for the understanding of diseases of nuclear and mitochondrial origin.
Mathematical Optimization Terminology takes into account multi-objective method considering the problems related to optimization in case of power distribution systems. It includes a short survey on model-based evolutionary algorithms and study on parameter optimization for support vector regression. This book also discusses about gradient-based cuckoo search for global optimization, a hybrid cuckoo search algorithm, extraction methods for uncertain inference rules by ant colony optimization, a benchmark test suite for evolutionary many-objective optimization, a hybrid SA-MFO algorithm for function optimization and engineering design problems and social group optimization (SGO).
Organic Reactions and their Nomenclature introduces organic compounds and their nomenclature explaining in detail the organic structures, bonding and classification of organic compounds.
