Dr. R. James Cook, one of the world's leading plant pathologists, built a storied 40-year career that profoundly impacted scientists and growers alike. His exceptional new book, Untold Stories: Forty Years of Field Research on Root Diseases of Wheat, is part autobiographical collection of first-person stories, experiences, and philosophies for scientists--and part practical management guide for growers and consultants working in the field today.
The ADSA Foundation is pleased to announce that after untold hours of work by a dedicated group of 171 chapter authors, 18 section editors, and 73 external reviewers, under the leadership of Dr. David Beede, the third edition of Large Dairy Herd Management (e-book) is now available for purchase.
Lecturers at the University of Huddersfield have contributed to a new book about an embattled Tory Prime Minister beset by political crises -- including Europe -- and facing the possibility of electoral meltdown.
From vaccinations to climate change, nuclear power to fracking, the weight of scientific evidence and the perceptions of the public are often deeply at odds. Political controversies arise over issues involving long-settled scientific issues as well as emerging technologies. The rapidly changing media environment complicates the communication of sound science. To illuminate these and other issues, Oxford University Press has published The Oxford Handbook of the Science of Science Communication.
"Chromatin Deregulation in Cancer", just released from CSHLPress, examines the chromatin components that are commonly mutated, what is understood about the mechanisms that lead to hematological malignancies and solid tumors, and prospects for the therapeutic modulation of chromatin. The contributors describe how histone proteins, histone-modifying enzymes, chromatin remodelers, transcriptional regulatory complexes, enhancer-associated factors, and signaling proteins are dysregulated in cancer pathogenesis. In addition, the roles of DNA methylation and noncoding RNAs are covered.
Why has the neoclassical Gustavian style become so prominent in the Swedish self-image? A new dissertation from Uppsala University shows how researchers in art history, along with museums, commercial enterprises and the monarchy, have contributed to preserving and conveying the Gustavian style.
SAGE Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Presenting Data Effectively: Communicating Your Findings for Maximum Impact, Second Edition by Dr. Stephanie D. H. Evergreen. The full-color text teaches students, researchers, evaluators, non-profit workers, and others who report data how to present research results in a meaningful way.
While the Paris Agreement, adopted in 2015, aims at limiting global warming to well below 2°C, concerns remain that currently global greenhouse gas emissions seem on track to warm the climate by more than that. Combining the force of over 150 researchers from leading scientific institutions across Europe, three major EU-funded projects, IMPRESSIONS, HELIX and RISES-AM-, have synthesized research knowledge on impacts and adaptation under high-end climate change for key policy sectors.
A field guide in conjunction with GSA's Rocky Mountain Section meeting offers five field trips that explore the structural geology, sedimentology, and paleontology near Calgary, as well as examining the relationship of the geology to the regional petroleum and mining industries. The guides describe the geology of a classic E-W transect through the Canadian Rockies, the stratigraphy of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Dinosaur Provincial Park, and the unique fossils of the Burgess Shale.
Power of the Latino vote in the US will balance its foreign policy A new book by a University of Kent researcher in international relations uses material published by Wikileaks to conclude that Trump-style nationalism will be counterbalanced by the growing strength of the Latino vote in the US.
