Fermented food can be produced with inexpensive ingredients and simple techniques and makes a significant contribution to the human diet, especially in rural households and village communities worldwide. Progress in the biological and microbiological sciences involved in the manufacture of these foods has led to commercialization and heightened interest among scientists and food processors. Handbook of Plant-Based Fermented Food and Beverage Technology, Second Edition is an up-to-date reference exploring the history, microorganisms, quality assurance, and manufacture of fermented food products derived from plant sources.
Tony Angell, master artist and naturalist, offers an intimate account of owls he has observed, admired, and depicted for decades
The literature on snakes is manifold but overwhelmingly centered on the natural sciences. Little has been published about them in the fields of popular culture or the history of medicine. Focusing primarily on American culture and history from the 1800s, this study draws on a wide range of sources--including newspaper archives, medical journals, and archives from the Smithsonian Institute--to examine the complex relationship between snakes and humans.
Perform supervised and unsupervised machine learning and learn advanced techniques such as training neural networks.
Organic poultry production has increased significantly in recent years to keep up with increasing consumer demand for organic eggs and meat.
Real-life encounters with orang-utans, chimpanzees, gorillas, gibbons, dealing with issues about disappearing habitats, studying their behaviour, what we can learn about ourselves from them and talking/communicating with apes.
Published in association with the RSPCA, the UK's leading animal welfare charity, this practical family guide is full of expert advice on how to choose a hamster and how best to look after it.
From the eastern rainforests to central deserts, Australia is home to some 900 species of birds. This book covers over 400 Australian bird watching sites conveniently grouped into the best birding areas, from one end of the country to the other. This includes areas such as Kakadu in the Top End and rocky gorges in the central deserts of the Northern Territory, the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, rainforests distributed along the eastern Australian seaboard, some of the world’s tallest forests in Tasmania, the Flinders Ranges and deserts along the iconic Strzelecki and Birdsville Tracks in South Australia, and the Mallee temperate woodlands and spectacular coastlines in both Victoria and south west Western Australia. Each chapter begins with a brief description of the location, followed by a section on where to find the birds, which describes specific birdwatching sites within the location’s boundaries, and information on accommodation and facilities. The book also provides a comprehensive "Bird Finding Guide", listing all of Australia’s birds with details on their abundance and where exactly to see them. Click here to view sample pages.

This handy birdwatching field guide is an excellent introduction to the fantastic array of birds found in Southeast Asia. Southeast Asia is home to a remarkable array of bird species-the most diverse on Earth. These birds range in size from the tiny Orange-bellied Flowerpeckers living within the rainforest, to massive White-bellied Sea-Eagles. They vary in color from drab, olive babblers, to exquisitely-hued kingfishers.
Recombinant Antibodies for Immunotherapy provides a comprehensive overview of the field of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), a market that has grown tremendously in recent years. Twenty-five articles by experienced and innovative authors cover the isolation of specific human mAbs, humanization, immunogenicity, technologies for improving efficacy, "arming" mAbs, novel alternative Ab constructs, increasing half-lives, alternative concepts employing non-immunoglobulin scaffolds, novel therapeutic approaches, a market analysis of therapeutic mAbs, and future developments in the field. The concepts and technologies are illustrated by examples of recombinant antibodies being used in the clinic or in development. This book will appeal to both newcomers and experienced scientists in the field, biology and biotechnology students, research and development departments in the pharmaceutical industry, medical researchers, clinicians, and biotechnology investors.
The second volume in a new series dedicated to protein degradation, this book discusses the mechanism and cellular functions of targeted protein breakdown via the ubiquitin pathway. Drawing on the combined knowledge of the world's leading protein degradation experts, this handy reference compiles information on the proteasome-mediated degradation steps of the ubiquitin pathway. In addition to proteasomal function and regulation, it also presents the latest results on novel members of the ubiquitin superfamily and their role in cellular regulation. Further volumes in the series cover the function of ubiquitin-protein ligases, and the roles of the ubiquitin pathway in regulating key cellular processes, as well as its pathophysiological disease states. Required reading for molecular biologists, cell biologists and physiologists with an interest in protein degradation.
