The second in this two-volume sequence discusses advances in understanding and managing pests and diseases. It also reviews ways of assessing its nutritional qualities as well as in measuring and minimising its environment impact.
China's plans to expand exponentially its exploitation of Tibet's natural resources will have terrifying consequences for land and people. This book is an entirely unique, authoritative guide through the torrent of online posts, official propaganda and exile speculation.
What does it take to consider a planet potentially habitable? If a planet is suitable for life, could life be present? Is life on other planets inevitable? Searching for Habitable Worlds answers these questions and provides both the general public and astronomy enthusiasts with a richly illustrated discussion of the most current knowledge regarding the search for extrasolar planets. Nearly everyone wants to know if we are alone in the universe. This book might not have the answers, but shows where we should look. View details
This book aims to teach
students, instructors and professionals the basis of optical techniques for
biomedical investigation. It is a text for researchers active at the
interface between biology, medicine and optics. With the format of a classical
textbook, this work contains the underlying theory of biological optics
and applications to real laboratory problems, via exercises and homework.
Examines the relationship between photography and citizenship, through a comprehensive account of the Colonial Office Visual Instruction Committee’s lantern slide lecture scheme: a project initiated by the British government at the beginning of the twentieth century that aimed to photograph the entirety of the empire.

As the Millennium Development Goalss pass their 2015 deadline and the international community begins to discuss the future of UN development policy, Poverty and the Millennium Development Goals brings together leading economists from both the global North and South to provide a much needed critique of the prevailing development agenda.
Principles of Biophotonics, volume two describes detection and statistical representation of optical fields. Beginning by placing the visible spectrum in the context of the electromagnetic frequency range, this presentation stresses how thin of a sliver is normally called the optical spectrum. In addition to describing properties of light with technical accuracy, the most common radiometric quantities are introduced, and conversion to photon-based quantities is explicitly presented. For completeness, an analogy to the photometric quantities is also made, and the three fundamental mechanisms for generating light, blackbody radiation, fluorescence and laser emission, are covered. Each chapter contains a set of practice problems and additional references, and this book aims to build the foundation for further study in subsequent volumes.
