Air-Breathing Fishes

Evolution, Diversity, and Adaptation

 

Academic Press, 1997.

ISBNs 9780122948602

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Air Breathing Fishes: Evolution, Diversity, and Adaptation is unique in its coverage of the evolution of air-breathing, incongruously because it focuses exclusively on fish. This important and fascinating book, containing nine chapters that present the life history, ecology, and physiology of many air-breathing fishes, provides an exceptional overview of air-breathing biology.
Each chapter provides a historical background, details the present status of knowledge in the field, and defines the questions needing attention in future research. Thoroughly referenced, containing more than 1,000 citations, and well documented with figures and tables, Air-Breathing Fishes is comprehensive in its coverage and will certainly have wide appeal. Researchers in vertebrate biology, paleontology, ichthyology, vertebrate evolution, natural history, comparative physiology, anatomy and many other fields will find something new and intriguing in Air-Breathing Fishes.

Key Features
* Offers a complete overview of an important and immensely interesting area of research
* Provides a perspective of air-breathing fish that spans 300 million years of vertebrate evolution
* Contains numerous illustrations as well as comprehensive charts
* Provides a synoptic treatment of all the known air-breathing species with important data on their morphological and physiological adaptations

Alcoholic Beverages

Sensory Evaluation and Consumer Research

 

Woodhead Publishing, 2012.

ISBNs 9780857090515

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Sensory evaluation methods are extensively used in the wine, beer and distilled spirits industries for product development and quality control, while consumer research methods also offer useful insights as the product is being developed. This book introduces sensory evaluation and consumer research methods and provides a detailed analysis of their applications to a variety of different alcoholic beverages.

Chapters in part one look at the principles of sensory evaluation and how these can be applied to alcoholic beverages, covering topics such as shelf life evaluation and gas chromatography – olfactometry. Part two concentrates on fermented beverages such as beer and wine, while distilled products including brandies, whiskies and many others are discussed in part three. Finally, part four examines how consumer research methods can be employed in product development in the alcoholic beverage industry.

With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Alcoholic beverages is an invaluable reference for those in the brewing, winemaking and distilling industries responsible for product development and quality control, as well as for consultants in sensory and consumer science and academic researchers in the field.

  • Comprehensively analyses the application of sensory evaluation and consumer research methods in the alcoholic beverage industry
  • Considers shelf life evaluation, product development and gas chromatography
  • Chapters examine beer, wine, and distilled products, and the application of consumer research in their production

Algal Ecology

Freshwater Benthic Ecosystems

 

Academic Press, 1996.

ISBNs 9780126684506

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Algae are an important component of aquatic benthic ecosystems because they reflect the health of their environment through their density, abundance, and diversity. This comprehensive and authoritative text is divided into three sections to offer complete coverage of the discussion in this field. The first section introduces the locations of benthic algae in different ecosystems, like streams, large rivers, lakes, and other aquatic habitats. The second section is devoted to the various factors, both biotic and abiotic, that affect benthic freshwater algae. The final section of the book focuses on the role played by algae in a variety of complex freshwater ecosystems. As concern over environmental health escalates, the keystone and pivotal role played by algae is becoming more apparent. This volume in the Aquatic Ecology Series represents an important compilation of the latest research on the crucial niche occupied by algae in aquatic ecosystems.

Key Features
* Presents algae as the important player in relation to environmental health
* Prepared by leading authorities in the field
* Includes comprehensive treatment of the functions of benthic algae as well as the factors that affect these important aquatic organisms
* Acts as an important reference for anyone interested in understanding and managing freshwater ecosystems
