    Forestry is the science, art and practice of understanding, managing and using wisely the natural resources associated with, and derived from forest lands. These resources include timber, water, fish, wildlife, soil, plants, and recreation. Forest lands are instrumental in the beauty and spiritual impact of our landscape. Forestry can involve a more holistic study of the systems that provide us with natural resources or it can involve wide-ranging specialisations. Such specialisations range from genetics to forest ecology, from wildfire science to climate change, from watershed management to fish and aquatic ecosystem management, from forest pathology to entomology, from plant biology to conservation and forest policy, from geographic information systems software to business modelling, and more. This book has been written for the students, teachers and researchers of forestry.

    Tree breeding is the application of genetic, reproductive biology and economic principles to the genetic improvement and management of forest trees. In contrast to the selective breeding of livestock, arable crops, and horticultural flowers over the last few centuries, the breeding of trees, with the exception of fruit trees, is a relatively recent occurrence. The topics of different chapters have so chosen as to give a comprehensive idea about forest genetics and tree breeding. Forests have multiple roles, including, traditional timber and fibre production, to sequestering global carbon emissions, preserving water systems and providing ecosystem services and shelter. This book is an invaluable resource for researchers, agriculturists, plant breeders and students working with genetics and breeding of forest trees.

Such information is also needed for forest-policy decisions. Forest and forestry research requires a great deal of additional information like density of the forests and stands, diversity, spatial distribution of trees within stands, and the expected growth of trees and stands. Forest Mensuration is deals with these topics. The exercises and problems at the end of most of two chapters are added primarily for the benefit of UG and P.G students.
    Mensuration is a means, not an end. It is indispensable aid to solving problems in management, finance and silviculture. Graphic and statistical conceptions acquired in mensurational work will be found equally useful in almost any quantitative problem in any branch of forest investigation. This book is a valuable resource for students, teachers and researchers in forestry and forestry related studies. Besides this, it is also need for forest policy decisions.

    Availability: In stock

    Xantomonas is a large genus of Gram negative bacteria that cause disease in hundreds of plant hosts, including many economically important crops. Xanthomonas spp. can cause bacterial spots and blights of leaves, stems and fruits on a wide variety of plant species. Xanthomonas species can easily spread in water, movement of infected materials like seed or propagation plants and by mechanical means like infected pruning tools upon contact with a susceptible host, bacteria will enter through wounds or natural plant openings as a means to infect. To prevent infections, limiting the introduction of the bacteria is key. Some resistant cultivars of certain plant species are available as this may be the most economonical means for controlling this disease. This book is an excellent overview of plant diseases caused by Xanthomonas. Attempt has been made to provide readily available information on various aspects of Xanthomonas and plant diseases. The whole subject matter has been divided into 28 chapters. It is hoped that this book will be of great value to students, teachers and researchers in both classical and molecular plant pathology, as well as readers interested in plant bacterium interactions.

    Food Packaging plays a vital role in preserving food throughout the distribution chain. Without packaging, the processing of food can become compromised as it is contained by direct contact with physical, chemical and biological contaminants. The development of novel food packaging has not only increased the shelf life of foods, but also their safety and quality- therefore bringing convenience to consumers. Directly related, and interlinked, with food packaging is the concept of shelf life- the length of time that food, beverages, pharmaceutical drugs, chemicals, and many other perishable items are given before they are considered unsuitable for sale, use, or consumption. The present book contains consumer perception of food biotechnology, safe handling of food, food storage, packaging of fresh and processed meat, modern packaging for fresh poultry, the expanded roles of food and beverage packaging, dairy process biotechnology and products packaging. Important reference have also been appended at the end of book. . This book would be useful for the food industry in optimizing the use of packaging to improve safety and quality, students and those working in food technology research, food packaging development and packaging technologists.

    Seafood is any form of sea life regarded as food by humans. Seafood prominently includes fish and shellfish. Shellfish include various species of molluscs, crustaceans, and echinoderms. Historically, sea mammals such as whales and dolphins have been consumed as food, though that happens to a lesser extent these days. Edible sea plants, such as some seaweed and microalgae, are widely eaten as seafood around the world, especially in Asia. The harvesting of wild seafood is known as fishing and the cultivation and farming of seafood is known as aquaculture, mariculture, or in the case of fish, fish farming. Seafood is often distinguished from meat, although it is still animal and is excluded in a strict vegetarian diet. Seafood is an important source of protein in many diets around the world, especially in coastal areas. Products, such as fish oil and spirulina tablets are also extracted from seafoods. Some seafood is feed to aquarium fish, or used to feed domestic pets, such as cats, and a small proportion is used in medicine, or is used industrially for non-food purposes. This book would be highly useful for the students, teachers and researchers of Biochemistry, Fisheries and Food Science.

    Item Code: #9789387642638

    Availability: In stock

    Soil are vital, fragile, finite natural resources that are essential for the sustained production of food and fiber. Good physical and chemical properties supply the right environment and sufficient nutrients to the organisms for optimal biological activity. This in turn improves the physical and chemical properties through improved soil structure and nutrient cycling. This book is divided into twelve chapters which mainly cover introduction, properties of soil, essential plant nutrients, soil horizon development and layers, horizons and characteristics diagnostic for mineral soils, organic soil materials, weathering of rocks and minerals, classification of soils and soil farming processes. This book would be highly useful for students, teachers and researchers of soil science, agricultural chemistry, agronomy, geology, ecology, microbiology and environmental sciences.

    Soil is an integral part of land wealth. It has a great importance in day-to-day human life. Agriculture products depend on fertility of soil. Insects continue to exist in all types of environment and inhabit more than two thirds of the identified species of animals in the planet earth. Insects can produce silk, honey, wax and lac that man has not been able to make as yet. Insects are the pollinators of our grain crops, fruits, vegetables, cotton and flowers. They serve as food for animals. The present book is enriched with 31 lead articles contributed by eminent researchers in their respective fields. It is divided into two parts comprising of Part I: Soil and Part II: Insects. It is meant to serve as an important resource materials for students, teachers, researchers, academicians, naturalists, entomologists, pedologists, agriculturists, pathologists, horticulturists as well as common people having concern for soil and insects.
