  3G Editorial Board/ 9781680959239/ Price:US$ 160.00
Book Cover The life cycle of plants is constituted by two generations: sporophytic and gametophytic. Gametophytic generation is the sexual generation. In the history of angiosperm embryology there have been three distinct periods: the first, in which the key aim was to unravel the chief facts regarding the development of the pollen and embryo sac, and the processes of fertilization and seed formation; the second, in which interest focused largely round a study of comparative embryology and an evaluation of the data thus obtained for the improvement of the existing systems of classification; and the third and latest in which embryology has become an experimental subject like cytology and physiology, where one tries to study the optimal conditions for the storage of the pollen and its germination; the receptivity of the stigma, fertilization and fruit-setting and how far the normal processes of development can be influenced or altered by a change in the environment.

  Cajumban, Alyssa A./ 9781680945416/ Price:US$ 145.00
Book Cover This book gives an overview of the present understanding of all areas of molecular processes of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process used by plants, algae and certain bacteria to harness energy from sunlight into chemical energy. Plants need food but they do not have to wait on people or animals to provide for them. Most plants are able to make their own food whenever they need it. This is done using light and the process is called photosynthesis. Photosynthesis takes place in the leaves of plants. The leaves are made up of very small cells. Inside these cells are tiny structures called chloroplasts. Each chloroplast contains a green chemical called chlorophyll which gives leaves their green color.

Book Cover This book covers topics ranging from plant genome structure and the key control points in how genes are expressed, to the mechanisms by which proteins are generated and how their activities are controlled and changed. Genomic tools have emerged as efficient and robust methods to enhance genetic gain in crop breeding programs; their use has been fast in staple cereals and high value crops, but limited in most of the legume crops. The cultivation of plants is an important aspect of today°¶s society in many ways. Not only do plants supply us with a major food resource and flow of nutrition but they are also an important source of chemicals and other non-food products such as drugs, oils, latex, pigments, and resins. The physical appearance of plants is determined by genetic factors that are inherited from parental crops. The natural transfer of genes can be altered using many genetic techniques such as selection or genetic engineering. One of the important goals of plant breeding is maintaining genetic diversity.

Such selective breeding changes the genetic composition of the plants over time. Plant breeding has been practiced for thousands of years, since near the beginning of human civilization. It is now practiced worldwide by individuals such as gardeners and farmers, or by professional plant breeders employed by organizations such as government institutions, universities, crop-specific industry associations or research centers.
SE02-463 Illustrated Handbook of Plant Biotechnology.
  / 9781680946857/ Price:US$ 180.00
Book Cover This book introduces the foundations for plant biotechnology by outlining the biological aspects including gene structure and expression, and the basic procedures in plant biotechnology of genomics, metabolomics, and transcriptomics. The roots of plant biotechnology can be traced back to the time when humans started collecting seeds from their favorite wild plants and began cultivating them in tended fields. It appears that when the plants were harvested, the seeds of the most desirable plants were retained and replanted the next growing season. While these primitive agriculturists did not have extensive knowledge of the life sciences, they evidently did understand the basic principles of collecting and replanting the seeds of any naturally occurring variant plants with improved qualities, such as those with the largest fruits or the highest yield, in a process that we call artificial selection. This domestication and controlled improvement of plant species was the beginning of plant biotechnology.
SE02-463 Illustrated Handbook of Botany.
  / 9781680946932/ Price:US$ 180.00
Book Cover Plants are vital to all life on earth. They convert light from the sun into energy we can eat, and even use for fuel. They also release the oxygen we breathe. Botanists study plants to try to understand how these processes work. Botany is the scientific study of plants. ?Plants,? to most people, means a wide range of living organisms from the smallest bacteria to the largest living things - the giant sequoia trees. Today scientists believe bacteria, algae and fungi are in their own distinct kingdoms, but most general botany courses, and most Botany Departments at colleges and universities, still teach about these groups. They may even study how genetic information in DNA controls plant development. This handbook provides a modern and comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of botany.

SE02-463 Illustrated Handbook of Plant Pathology.
  / 9781680946970/ Price:US$ 180.00
Book Cover Because of the reliance of humans on plants for food, fibers and other resources, understanding plant diseases and their control is of vital importance to our survival. Plant disease epidemics can cause famines, eliminate a thriving industry or poison animals and humans. Plant diseases are the result of infection by other organisms that adversely affect the growth, physiological functioning and productivity of a plant, manifesting outwardly as visible symptoms. All species of plants, wild and cultivated alike, are subject to disease. Although each species is susceptible to characteristic diseases, these are, in each case, relatively few in number. The occurrence and prevalence of plant diseases vary from season to season, depending on the presence of the pathogen, environmental conditions, and the crops and varieties grown. Some plant varieties are particularly subject to outbreaks of diseases; others are more resistant to them. Parasitic organisms that cause disease are called pathogens. This illustrated work in plant pathology outlines how to recognize, treat, and prevent plant diseases.

SE02-462 Landscaping and Horticulture. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955231/ Price:US$ 79.95
Book Cover Landscape design can be de ned as organizing and enriching outdoor space by placing plants and structures in an agreeable and useful relationship with the natural environment. Designing landscapes is an art. Merely planting trees and shrubs is not landscaping. Landscaping is creating a plan to make the best use of available space in the most attractive way. It means shaping the land to make the most of a site°¶s natural features and advantages, and it includes building such necessary structures as fences, walls and patios. Finally, landscaping involves selecting and growing plants that best fit the design. The Landscape and Horticulture fuses the creative aspects of art and design with the technical and scienti c aspects of horticulture.
SE02-462 Mycology and Plant Pathology. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955286/ Price:US$ 79.95

SE02-462 Basics of Micropropagation. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955293/ Price:US$ 79.95
Book Cover Just as every person is di erent and unique, so is each plant. Some have traits like better color, yield, or pest resistance. For years, scientists have looked for methods to allow them to make exact copies of these superior individuals. Plants usually reproduce by forming seeds through sexual reproduction. That is, egg cells in the owers are fertilized by pollen from the stamens of the plants. Each of these sexual cells contains genetic material in the form of DNA. During sexual reproduction, DNA from both parents is combined in new and unpredictable ways, creating unique organisms. This unpredictability is a problem for plant breeders as it can take several years of careful greenhouse work to breed a plant with desirable characteristics. Many of us think that all plants grow from seeds but now, researchers have developed several methods of growing exact copies of plants without seeds. Micropropagation is the growing of plants from meristematic tissue or somatic cells of superior plants on nutrient suitable media under controlled aseptic physical conditions. Micropropagation is used to multiply noble plants such as those that have been genetically modi ed or bred through conventional plant breeding methods. It is also used to provide a su cient number of plantlets for planting from a stock plant which does not produce seeds, or does not respond well to vegetative reproduction.
SE02-462 Concepts in Ethnobotany. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955316/ Price:US$ 79.95
Ethno refers to people, culture, a culture°¶s collective body of beliefs, aesthetic, language, knowledge, and practice. Botany is the study of plants°Xfrom the tiniest fern or blade of grass to the tallest or oldest tree. Ethnobotany is considered a branch of ethnobiology, the study of past and present interrelationships between human cultures and the plants, animals, and other organisms in their environment. Like its parent eld, ethnobotany makes apparent the connection between human cultural practices and the sub-disciplines of biology. Ethnobotanical studies range across space and time, from archaeological investigations of the role of plants in ancient civilizations to the bioengineering of new crops. Furthermore, ethnobotany is not limited to nonindustrialized or nonurbanized societies. In fact, co-adaptation of plants and human cultures has changed°Xand perhaps intensi ed°Xin the context of urbanization and globalization in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Ethnobotanical knowledge encompasses both wild and domesticated species, and is rooted in observation, relationship, needs, and traditional ways of knowing. Such knowledge evolves over time, and is therefore always changing and adding new discoveries, ingenuity and methods.
SE02-462 Physiology of Plant Cells. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955323/ Price:US$ 79.95
Book Cover Plant cells are eukaryotic cells, or cells with a membrane-bound nucleus. Unlike prokaryotic cells, the DNA in a plant cell is housed within the nucleus. In addition to having a nucleus, plant cells also contain other membrane-bound organelles, or tiny cellular structures, that carry out speci c functions necessary for normal cellular operation. Organelles have a wide range of responsibilities that include everything from producing hormones and enzymes to providing energy for a plant cell. Plant cells are similar to animal cells in that they are both eukaryotic cells and have similar organelles. Plant cells are generally larger than animal cells. While animal cells come in various sizes and tend to have irregular shapes, plant cells are more similar in size and are typically rectangular or cube shaped. Plants cell constitute of membrane bound nucleus and many cellular structures. These organelles carry out functions that are necessary for the proper functioning and survival of the cell. The cell organelles of the plant are enclosed by a cell wall and cell membrane. The constituents of the cell are suspended in the cytoplasm or cytosol. A plant cell also contains structures not found in an animal cell. Some of these include a cell wall, a large vacuole, and plastids. Plastids, such as chloroplasts, assist in storing and harvesting needed substances for the plant. Animal cells also contain structures such as centrioles, lysosomes, and cilia and agella that are not typically found in plant cells.
SE02-462 Concepts in Plant Physiology. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955330/ Price:US$ 79.95
Book Cover Plant Physiology is the science which deals with the functions of cells, tissues, organs or the plant as a whole. It is the study of vital processes of plants. Plant physiology is the study of the plant way of life which includes aspects of plants life, its survival, metabolic activities, water relations, mineral nutrition, development, movement, irritability, organization, growth and transport processes. Physiological process may be de ned as any chemical or physical change occurring within a cell or organism and any exchange of substances between the cell or organism and its environment. According to this de nition of life process or Physiological process, the physical process of di usion (including osmosis, gas di usion, transpiration), water conduction, solute absorption, absorption or loss or transport of radiant energy and other internal physical changes or exchanges with the environment would be considered as physiological process, similarly all metabolic changes like those concerned in respiration, photosynthesis, synthesis or degradation of lipids, amino acids, proteins etc. , when they occur within the cell or organism would be considered as physiological process.
SE02-462 Physiology of Fungi. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955347/ Price:US$ 79.95
Book Cover Fungi are living organisms that are distantly related to plants, and more closely related to animals, but rather di erent from either of those groups. Kingdom Fungi includes mushrooms, rusts, smuts, pu balls, tru es, morels, molds, and yeasts, and thousands of other organisms and microorganisms. Fungi grow best where there is a rich supply of organic matter. Most fungi are saprobic (obtaining nutrients from dead organic matter). Since they lack photosynthetic pigments, fungi cannot perform photosynthesis and must obtain their nutrients from preformed organic matter. They are therefore chemoheterotrophic organisms. Fungi reproduce sexually or asexually, or both, depending upon the species and the environmental conditions. As the name implies, sexual reproduction is the result of the union of two spores. Most fungi reproduce both sexually and asexually. Asexual reproduction occurs in the fungi when spores form by mitosis. These spores can be conidia, sporangiospores, arthrospores (fragments of hyphae), or chlamydospores (spores with thick walls). Fungal spores are important in the identi cation of the fungus, since the spores are unique in shape, color, and size. A single spore is capable of germinating and reestablishing the entire mycelium. Spores are also the method for spreading fungi in the environment. Fungi grow well under the same conditions that favor the growth of bacteria--warmth and moisture. It is for this reason that fungal infections pose a serious problem to troops in the tropics. As the temperature decreases, fungal activity also decreases; however, the spores are very resistant to cold, some surviving freezing temperatures for long periods of time. On the other hand, fungi are easily killed at high temperatures.
SE02-462 Concepts of Plant Anatomy. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955354/ Price:US$ 79.95
Book Cover Plant anatomy is the study of plant tissues and cells in order to learn more about the way these organisms are constructed and how they work. These studies are very important because they lead to a better understanding of how to care for plants and ght plant diseases. Plant anatomy is also known as phytotomy. A plant is a complex structure that consists of a number of parts which constitute the whole plant. If you learn to identify each individual part, you will gain a much greater understanding as to how the plant works as a whole. This can be helpful to aromatherapists who need to be aware of the part of the plant an essential oil was derived from because there is often a connection between the oils location in a plant and its therapeutic action. Understanding plant anatomy also helps everyone appreciate the art of distillation and extraction. While originally it included plant morphology, which is the description of the physical form and external structure of plants, since the mid-20th century the investigations of plant anatomy are considered a separate, distinct eld, and plant anatomy refers to just the internal plant structures. Plant anatomy is now frequently investigated at the cellular level, and often involves the sectioning of tissues and microscopy.
SE02-462 Nematode Management in Plants. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955361/ Price:US$ 79.95
Book Cover Plant parasitic nematodes are small microscopic roundworms that live in the soil and attack the roots of plants. Crop production problems induced by nematodes, therefore, generally occur as a result of root dysfunction, reducing rooting volume and foraging and utilization e ciency of water and nutrients. Many di erent genera and species of nematodes can be important to crop production. In many cases a mixed community of plant parasitic nematodes is present in a eld, rather than having a single species occurring alone. In general, the most widespread and economically important nematode species include the root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne spp., and sting nematode, Belonolaimus longicaudatus. The host range of these nematodes, as with others, includes many di erent weeds and most if not all of the commercially grown vegetables within the state. Yield reductions can be extensive but vary signi cantly between plant and nematode species.

  Richard Milne/ 9781780238159/ Price:ĘG 16.00
Book Cover Has a group of plants ever inspired such love in some, and hatred in others, as rhododendrons? Their propensity towards sexual infidelity makes them popular with horticultural breeders, and early plant collectors faced mortal peril to bring stunning new species back to life. They can clothe whole hillsides or gardens with colour. But there is a darker side to these plants. Numerous Chinese folk tales link them with tragedy and death. They can poison livestock and intoxicate humans, and their narcotic honey has been used as a weapon of war. Rhododendron ponticum has run riot across the British countryside, but the full story of this implacable invader contains many surprises. Richard Milne explores the many ways in which rhododendrons have influenced human societies, relating this to the extraordinary story of the plants°¶ evolution. Tales are told of mythical figures, intrepid collectors and eccentric plant breeders. More than a thousand species exist, ranging from rugged trees on Himalayan slopes to rock-hugging alpines. However much you know about rhododendrons, this book will tell you something new.

  Vassilakos, Nikon/ 9781682502709/ Price:US$ 170.00
Transgenic plants are the ones, whose DNA is modified using genetic engineering techniques. The aim is to introduce a new trait to the plant which does not occur naturally in the species. A transgenic plant contains a gene or genes that have been artificially inserted. The inserted gene sequence is known as the transgene, it may come from an unrelated plant or from a completely different species. The purpose of inserting a combination of genes in a plant, is to make it as useful and productive as possible. Development of efficient transformation protocols is becoming a complementary strategy to conventional breeding techniques for the improvement of crops. Transgenic Plants: Advances and Limitations covers the recent advances carried on improvement of transformation methods together with assessment of the impact of genetically transformed crops on biosafety.

SE02-456 Bryophytes, Pteridophytes, and Gymnosperms.
  Dai, Do N./ 9781682510421/ Price:US$ 170.00
Book Cover Bryophytes and pteridophytes are two large groups of spore producing land plants. Bryophytes are a group of small, mostly non-vascular, land plants that share a unique life cycle having a dominant gametophyte. The spore producing body called sporophyte is permanently attached to the sexual body called gametophyte. The gametophytic bodies of bryophytes can be either thalloid or leafy. The pteridophytes, which include the ferns and fern allies, are a group of vascular land plants with a dominant sporophytic body. The gametophytic body, the prothallus, is minute, often heart-shaped and free living. Like bryophytes, members of pteridophytic group do not produce seeds but only spores. Angiosperms are seed-producing plants like the gymnosperms and can be distinguished from the gymnosperms by characteristics including flowers, endosperm within the seeds, and the production of fruits that contain the seeds. The book details the reproductive system and physical characteristics of bryophytes, pteridophytes, and gymnosperms.

SE02-456 Angiospem Taxonomy and Gymnosperms.
  Taia, Wafaa K./ 9781682510445/ Price:US$ 170.00
Book Cover Taxonomy is the science of naming, describing and classifying organisms and includes all plants, animals and microorganisms of the world. Taxonomy identifies and enumerates the components of biological diversity providing basic knowledge underpinning management and implementation of the convention on biological diversity. Angiosperms are a taxonomic class of plants in which the mature seed is surrounded by the ovule. Living gymnosperms are a diverse group of plants, most of which bear their sporangia in large, prominent strobili or cones. These strobili are similar to those of lycopsids and horsetails. Strobili consist of a shortened stem with several modified leaves that bear sporangia. Like all seed plants, gymnosperms are heterosporous. The sporangia that generate the male microspores and female megaspores are usually borne on separate cones. This book deals with the principles of angiosperm taxonomy and gymnosperms.
Trees, Woods and Forests: A Social and Cultural History
  Charles Watkins/ 9781780236643/ Price:ĘG 18.00
Book Cover Forests and woods have always been central to the development of human technology and culture and our expansion as a species. Trees, Woods and Forests shows how for thousands of years, woodland has been managed by humans using ancient practices such as coppicing and pollarding trees for fuel and as fodder for animals. In the early Middle Ages royal forests were established across Europe as the hunting grounds of kings. In the seventeenth century European enthusiasts collected, named, catalogued and acclimatized trees from all over the world in arboreta, while in the eighteenth century the cult of the Picturesque transformed attitudes to trees in the landscape. Trees can live to a great age, and some woods appear timeless and ancient, yet they are prone to sudden death through fire and storm. Human activity has led to the clearance and destruction of enormous areas of woodland and has also brought about the rapid spread across continents of potent diseases such as chestnut blight and ash dieback. In recent years, anxiety about the environmental impact of humans on trees has led to the establishment of national parks and reserves, as well as the practice of °•rewilding°¶ landscapes. This book, now available in paperback, draws on the most recent work of historians, archaeologists, geographers, botanists and foresters, and explores forests in Britain, the us, Greece, Italy and France. It is a comprehensive and fascinating overview of humankind°¶s interaction with these most valuable resources.

Book Cover We spray them, pluck them and bury them under mulch, and we curse their resilience when they spring back into place. To most of us, weeds can seem nothing more than intruders in gardens, farms and city streets. They spring up unwanted and are hastily removed without a second thought. Superweeds are characterized as malevolent trespassers, intent on destroying humanity°¶s carefully cultivated allotments and trails. But the idea of the weed is a slippery one, constantly changing according to different needs, fashions and contexts. In a well-ordered field of corn, a scarlet poppy is a bright red intruder, but in other parts of the world it is an important cultural symbol, a potent and lucrative pharmaceutical source, or simply a beautiful ornament. Fat hen, which today we consider a pest, was in Neolithic times a staple crop, its seeds an important source of nutrition. Weeds sketches the history of the fashions and attitudes that have shaped our fields and gardens, showing that what we keep out of them is just as fascinating as what we put in.

  Duvall, Chris/ 9781780233413/ Price:ĘG 16.00
Book Cover This book does not advocate either the prohibition or legalization of the drug but challenges received wisdom on both sides of the debate. Cannabis explores and analyses a wide range of sources to provide a better understanding of its current prohibition, as well as of the diversity of human°Vcannabis relationships across the globe. This, the author argues, is necessary to redress the oversimplistic portrayals of marijuana and hemp that have dominated discourse on the subject, and ultimately to improve how the crop is managed worldwide. This highly accessible, richly illustrated volume is an essential read given rapidly evolving debates about legality and in light of changes in the criminalization of marijuana in Uruguay, some U.S. states and other jurisdictions worldwide.
  Syme, Alison/ 9781780232928/ Price:ĘG 16.00
Willow tells the rich tale of this many-sided plant, exploring its presence in literature, art and human history. Linked with life and death, grief and joy, toil and play, necessity and ornament, the willow has, in different times and places, functioned as a mirror of and participant in almost every facet of human existence. Although willows have been put to manifold practical uses, Alison Syme argues powerfully that we must also heed their poetic lessons: willows have much to teach us about living, dying and loving, hybridizing and enriching our world and protecting the environment.
  Harris, Stephen/ 9781780232737/ Price:ĘG 16.00
Grasses explains the history of our relationship with these humble yet vital plants from the end of the last Ice Age to the present day. Perhaps more than any other plant, grasses show the effects of human influence: farmed on a massive scale, they are the ultimate staple crop. In turn we are also influenced by grasses, often fighting to preserve our °•green space°¶ and public parks. Stephen Harris describes this relationship against the background of our heightened awareness of climate change: in the future we will have to balance our needs of grass as food, grass as living space and potentially even grass as fuel. Mixing biology, sociology and cultural history, Grasses provides us with arguably the fullest exploration yet of what grasses mean and have meant: their profound importance to our survival but also to our pleasure, our diets and our minds. Featuring numerous botanical images as well as many fine examples from art and popular culture, Grasses is a must-have for gardeners, food lovers and environmentalists alike.
