    Marth and Steele (both food science, U. of Wisconsin-Madison) present a comprehensive textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in food/dairy science and food/dairy microbiology. The second edition contains revised versions of chapters from the first edition plus four new chapters. Coverage includes the microbiology of the milk-producing animal; the microbiology of unfermented dairy foods; microorganisms used in fermented dairy foods (the use of starter cultures; genetics and metabolism of starter bacteria); fermented dairy foods; probiotics and prebiotics; public health concerns, and dairy product safety issues and practices. Also suitable as a reference for others in the dairy industry, for veterinary students and practicing veterinarians, and to those in local, state and federal regulatory agencies. Annotation c.

    The reader of this comprehensive presentation benefits from an outstanding overview of all aspects of the fascinating phenomenon of bird migration. The book is written by leading experts from around the world. The text summarizes reviews and discussions of the most recent hypotheses. In doing so, it covers the entire research field from phenomenology through to ecology, physiology, control mechanisms, orientation, evolutionary aspects and conservation measures. It also examines the most modern methodological approaches including, satellite trakcking, molecular techniques or stable isotope investigations and envisages forthcoming developments in the course of global warming.
  • Behaviour of Pinnipeds

    Investigates several aspects of the lifestyles of seals, sea lions, and walruses, which are ecologically peculiar because they depend on the sea for feeding and on the land or ice for mating thus the evolution of their behavior is quite different from either purely terrestrial or aquatic animals. The separately-authored chapters vary in technical level; most are accessible to the general reader. The topics include mating, the behavior of neonates, communication (especially non-acoustic signaling), the physiology of behavior, reproductive and foraging energetics, and sensory reception and processing.

  • Biology of Grasshoppers

    By R. F. Chapman

    Our Price: $315.00
    • Format: Hardcover

    • Published: April 1990
    The often mythic status accorded migratory locust plagues and the severe economic impact of which they, along with grasshoppers, are capable have been a chief motive behind research into those insects. But acridoids are also ideal organisms for studying problems of basic biology, not to mention their significance in a number of other areas of research. That they are interesting subjects of research is one of the premises at work in this book. The other is that a multidimensional view of acridoids is necessary to appreciate fully their observable biological responses. Reflecting the considerable refinement in research techniques that has occurred since Uvarov's classic on physiology and behavior of Acridoidea, this book offers new information in the field made possible by the advent of radar and electron microscopy, recent developments in electrophysiology, and new paradigms, especially in approaches to population biology. Biology of Grasshoppers comprises articles authored by a number of specialists in a variety of related disciplines. Among the topics covered are: Chemoreception, food selection, feeding, nutrition Water and temperature regulation Pheromones, chemical communication, mating systems Flight and migration, population dynamics Pathogenic diseases and color pattern polymorphism With studies ranging from the molecular to the evolutionary scales, Biology of Grasshoppers presents a diversity of topics in a context that emphasizes the functioning of the whole organism. Providing many insights into general biological principles through the study of Acridoidea, its organismal approach juxtaposes chapters from scientists with very different backgrounds to provide links among disciplines that are too often ignored.
