The second part gives examples of applied biomonitoring in Germany and Switzerland (changes in species composition, phenologies, vegetation ...

  • Defense against Bioterror: Detection Technologies, Implementation Strategies and Commercial Opportunities

    A critical assessment of state-of-the-art of emerging ('breakthrough') biosensor technologies that will allow for the rapid identification of biological threat agents in the environment and human population.Identification of directions for future research, and to promote close working relationships between scientists from different countries and ...

  • Coupling of Biological and Electronic Systems

    The coupling of biological and electronic systems has in the past few years emerged as a field of increasing importance. Achievements like the cardiac pacemaker have paved the way for more sophisticated approaches, such as the lab-on-a-chip and DNA computers. This book presents reviews on some of the most promising projects in this ...

  • Fish Bioacoustics

    The study of how fish make and respond to sound has important implications for communication, physiology, behavior, and commercial techniques. Fish Bioacoustics, a new definitive volume on fish auditory systems, will interest investigators in both basic research of fish bioacoustics as well as investigators in applied aspects of fisheries and ...

  • Novel Approaches in Biosensors and Rapid Diagnostic Assays

    In the medical, food, and environmental fields there is a continuous demand for inexpensive and sensitive analytical devices that are reliable, rapid, capable of high-throughput screening, and have low cost per test unit. Small and portable biosensor devices are designed to fulfill most of these requirements, and can be used in laboratory and ...

  • Principles of Marine Bioacoustics

    This book is about studying the acoustics of marine animals using underwater acoustic techniques. Marine bioacoustics is a very broad interdisciplinary field that covers diverse areas as the production and reception of sound by researchers, the production and reception of sound by marine animals, the nature of sound propagation in the ocean, the ...
