Plant Breeding for Biotic Stress Resistance
Experience shows that biotic stresses occur with different levels of intensity in nearly all agricultural areas around the world. The occurrence of insects, weeds and diseases caused by fungi, bacteria or viruses may not be relevant in a specific year but they usually harm yield in most years. Global warming has shifted the paradigm of biotic stresses in most growing areas, especially in the tropical countries, sparking intense discussions in scientific forums. This book was written with the idea of collecting in a single publication the most recent advances and discoveries concerning breeding for biotic stresses, covering all major classes of biotic challenges to agriculture and food production. Accordingly, it presents the state-of-the-art in plant stresses caused by all microorganisms, weeds and insects and how to breed for them. Complementing Plant Breeding for Abiotic Stress Tolerance, this book was written for scientists and students interested in learning how to breed for biotic stress scenarios, allowing them to develop a greater understanding of the basic mechanisms of resistance to biotic stresses and develop resistant cultivars.

Squadron/Signal Publications 1064: SBD Dauntless in action – Aircraft No. 64

Robert C. Stern – SBD Dauntless in action – Aircraft No. 64
Squadron/Signal Publications | 1984 | ISBN: 0897471539 | English | 51 pages | PDF | 12.07 MB
Squadron/Signal Publications 1064
The Douglas SBD Dauntless was one of the key US Navy aircraft of the Pacific War, and one of the outstanding dive bombers of the Second World War. The aircraft sunk more Japanese ships than any other aircraft, and during the Battle of Midway, sank four Japanese aircraft carriers, thus turning the tide of the Pacific War.
Robert C. Stern, in his "SBD Dauntless in Action," does an excellent job describing this otherwise unassuming aircraft. Like most Squadron/Signal "in Action" publications, the book includes lots of photographs, illustrations detailing the different versions, a three-view line drawing, and a page of color plates. The book starts chronologically, starting with the SBD's predecessor the Northrop BT-1 before moving on to the prototype XSBD-1 and SBD-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 production versions. Besides offering lots of technical details, the book describes briefly the operational history of the dive bomber, beginning with the aircraft's use at Pearl Harbor before moving on to the Battle of the Coral Sea and the Battle of Midway. He concludes with a discussion of the aircraft's use as a shore-based patrol bomber and finally, trainer, having been replaced in front-line carrier service by the newer and more powerful Curtiss SB2C Helldiver.
All total this book offers a good summary of the SBD's operational and technical history, and is a useful addition to the literature on this important aircraft.

Abiotic Stress Responses in Plants: Metabolism, Productivity and Sustainability

Parvaiz Ahmad, M.N.V. Prasad – Abiotic Stress Responses in Plants: Metabolism, Productivity and Sustainability
Published: 2011-11-18 | ISBN: 1461406331 | PDF | 627 pages | 7 MB

Abiotic stress cause changes in soil-plant-atmosphere continuum and is responsible for reduced yield in several major crops. Therefore, the subject of abiotic stress response in plants – metabolism, productivity and sustainability – is gaining considerable significance in the contemporary world. Abiotic stress is an integral part of “climate change,” a complex phenomenon with a wide range of unpredictable impacts on the environment. Prolonged exposure to these abiotic stresses results in altered metabolism and damage to biomolecules. Plants evolve defense mechanisms to tolerate these stresses by upregulation of osmolytes, osmoprotectants, and enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants, etc. This volume deals with abiotic stress-induced morphological and anatomical changes, abberations in metabolism, strategies and approaches to increase salt tolerance, managing the drought stress, sustainable fruit production and postharvest stress treatments, role of glutathione reductase, flavonoids as antioxidants in plants, the role of salicylic acid and trehalose in plants, stress-induced flowering. The role of soil organic matter in mineral nutrition and fatty acid profile in response to heavy metal stress are also dealt with. Proteomic markers for oxidative stress as a new tools for reactive oxygen species and photosynthesis research, abscisic acid signaling in plants are covered with chosen examples. Stress responsive genes and gene products including expressed proteins that are implicated in conferring tolerance to the plant are presented. Thus, this volume would provides the reader with a wide spectrum of information including key references and with a large number of illustrations and tables.
