Café, crème, savon et Cie: La petite chimie du matin de by Muriel Chiron-Charrier

By Muriel Chiron-Charrier

Marie Curieuse... mais qui est donc Marie Curieuse ? Ce pourrait être vous, si tout comme elle, des questions vous assaillent dès le matin à los angeles sortie du lit : Quelle différence y-a-t-il entre l. a. théine et l. a. caféine ? remark le savon a-t-il été créé ? A quoi sert le collagène présent dans notre épiderme ? Avec quoi se maquillait Cléopâtre ?

Sur un ton à l. a. fois drôle et sérieux, l'auteure nous fait découvrir l'histoire d'un produit, les origines de ses composants, les réactions chimiques pour arriver à un tel résultat et son utilisation... bref los angeles petite chimie du matin ! Chaque partie est construite autour d'une thématique.

Les explications sont claires et concises et les illustrations décalées nous emportent dans le monde de Marie Curieuse.

Plant Cold Hardiness: Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and by E. Tapio Palva, Pekka Heino (auth.), Paul H. Li, Tony H. H.

By E. Tapio Palva, Pekka Heino (auth.), Paul H. Li, Tony H. H. Chen (eds.)

This quantity is compiled in line with the complaints of the fifth overseas Plant chilly Hardiness Seminar, which was once held at Oregon kingdom collage, Corvallis, Oregon, united states, August five to eight, 1996. contributors representing sixteen international locations and 22 U. S. states attended the seminar. Researchers got here from significant laboratories world wide concerning plant chilly hardiness learn. the data compiled during this quantity represents the state-of­ the-art examine and our figuring out of plant chilly hardiness by way of molecular biol­ ogy, biochemistry, and body structure. The 1996 overseas Plant chilly Hardiness Seminar used to be the 5th of the sequence; it was once first held in 1977 on the college of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN, and because then has met each five years. the final objective of this seminar sequence is to foster the alternate of rules and learn findings one of the assorted teams of scientists learning freezing and chilling stresses from a wide selection of views. this can be the single overseas convention concentration­ ing its courses solely on low temperature pressure in crops. in line with the tradi­ tion, the 5th convention interested by freezing and chilling rigidity of crops and lined a number of features of plant chilly hardiness, together with molecular genetics, biochemistry, physi­ ology, and agricultural functions. All individuals to this quantity are eminent researchers who've had major contributions to the information of plant chilly hardiness.

Abiotic Stress Physiology of Horticultural Crops by N.K. Srinivasa Rao, K.S. Shivashankara, R.H. Laxman

By N.K. Srinivasa Rao, K.S. Shivashankara, R.H. Laxman

This publication brings jointly fresh advances within the sector of abiotic rigidity tolerance in a variety of greens, fruit plants, plantation plants and tuber vegetation. the most demanding situations to enhancing the productiveness of horticultural vegetation are the differing kinds of abiotic stresses usually as a result of weather switch on the nearby and worldwide point. warmth, drought, chilly and salinity are the foremost abiotic stresses that adversely impact development and productiveness and will set off a sequence of morphological, physiological, biochemical and molecular alterations in quite a few horticultural crops. 
To date, there are not any books overlaying horticultural crop-specific abiotic pressure tolerance mechanisms and their administration. Addressing that hole, the e-book is split into 2 sections, the 1st of which highlights fresh advances within the normal elements of abiotic rigidity tolerance just like the position of hormones, reactive oxygen species, seed remedies, molecular mechanisms of warmth tolerance and heavy steel toxicity, whereas the second one makes a speciality of the abiotic tension tolerance mechanisms of assorted greens, fruit vegetation, plantation vegetation and tuber plants. It comprises complete discussions of fruit plants like mango, grapes, banana, litchi and arid area end result; greens plants like tomato, capsicum, onion and tuber plants; and plantation vegetation like coconut, areca nut, oil palm and black pepper. one of the options for plant tension survival, examples of either avoidance and tolerance correct to specific vegetation are tested intimately, supported by way of chosen entire case reviews of development. As such, the booklet bargains a invaluable source suited to scientists and graduate scholars operating within the fields of crop development, genetic engineering, and the abiotic rigidity tolerance of horticultural crops.

Mind-Body Unity: A New Vision for Mind-Body Science and by Henry Dreher

By Henry Dreher

Over the earlier 20 years, an explosion of clinical stories have helped to give an explanation for why our frame of mind may well exert any such robust impression at the nation of our overall healthiness. In Mind-Body Unity technology author Henry Dreher weighs the result of modern mind-body learn, and he concludes that brain and physique usually are not in simple terms attached, they're unified. Our minds play a job in well-being, Dreher argues, the way in which our eyes play a job in sight.

Integrating organic learn on mind-body solidarity with psychosocial study on feelings in human future health, Dreher surveys amazing findings at the function of feelings, coping, and character in heart sickness; on psychosocial components in melanoma development and survival; and at the social dimensions of human healthiness. He additionally describes mind-body techniques to the therapy of melanoma, women's medical conditions, somatization sickness, and in surgical procedure. eventually, Dreher offers a severe assessment of the social and political context of this learn, from the shows of best popularizers resembling Bernie Siegel and Deepak Chopra, to the reports of practitioners and sufferers, to the resistance of mainstream drugs, to the various intriguing chances steered by way of a deeper knowing of ways brain and physique are inextricably bound.

Physiology of the Fetal and Neonatal Lung: Proceedings of by L. Marin (auth.), Dr D. V. Walters, Prof. L. B. Strang,

By L. Marin (auth.), Dr D. V. Walters, Prof. L. B. Strang, Prof. F. Geubelle (eds.)

L. B. STRANG The prior 25 years have obvious a notable development in our wisdom of lung improvement in its structural, physiological and biochemical dimensions. a lot of the impetus for study resulting in new wisdom has derived from the notion that many breathing problems within the baby little one are as a result of faulty improvement or maladaption of a few part or elements of the respiration method. hence, to quote one instance, surfac­ tant deficiency is obviously visible to be the reason for atelectasis in hyaline mem­ brane affliction; and to quote one other, it's commonly authorized that the mechanisms controlling patency of the ductus arteriosus and pulmonary vascular resistance additionally make sure the right-to-Ieft or left-to-right shunting often saw during neonatal breathing problems. There are, even though, components of physiological wisdom - reminiscent of these with regards to breathing keep an eye on and to liquid formation and absorption - that are essentially of serious relevance to lung model at delivery yet the place it has now not but proved attainable to hyperlink a particular medical nation to the malfunction of a selected mechanism. In making plans this symposium an try out used to be made to arrange the cloth in an orderly demeanour, beginning with the embryonic and fetal levels of development and improvement, carrying on with with respiration keep an eye on and the function of surfactant in lung aeration at start, and finishing with the remedy of neonatal breathing disorders.
