    Contains 18 contributions presented by agricultural scientists, geneticist, breeders, and biologists from North America, Europe, and the Middle East presenting basic and applied developments that have or are expected to affect the field of ornamental plant breeding. An introductory section presents the basics of molecular and classical genetics and the evolution of floral diversity. Classical approaches to the creation and selection of genetic variability are next addressed, including mutation a nd tissue culture-aided breeding. In the last part, current knowledge of the processes affecting ornamental and agronomic traits at the molecular level are addressed. Traits addressed include plant resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses, light sensing, flower development, various floral pigments and floral fragrance, and flower senescence.

    Critically reviews animal models widely used in developing powerful new therapies for central nervous system diseases. Coverage includes novel uses of animal models of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, and studies of ageing, traumatic brain injury, and stroke. Techniques that rely heavily on behavioral analyses, as well as models developed from infusions of neurotoxins and from advances in molecular biology, are explained, as are models developed for more acute neurological conditions. Of interest to neuroscientists, pharmacologists, and clinicians. The editor is director of neuroscience at Alkermes, Inc. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
