  • Green Intentions: Creating a Green Value Stream to Compete and Win

    Developed by a plant manager who experienced first-hand the challenges to going green in a business environment, Green Intentions provides organizations with a simple, straightforward, and practical approach to green—the Green Value Stream (GVS) process—that is as mindful as it is profitable. Based on the highly successful, Lean philosophy, the ...

  • Signaling in Plants

    This book addresses diverse aspects of signaling at all levels of plant organization, starting from single molecules; through vesicle recycling and organelles, dynamic actin cytoskeletons, and plant organs bending in response to sensory stimuli induced by abiotic cues such as gravity and light; up to the whole organism as related to its circadian ...

  • Lactic Acid Bacteria

    For a long time, lactic acid bacteria have played an indispensable role in food production. This book provides an overview and recent findings on their genetics and biochemistry as well as possible applications. The development and use of non-pathogenic lactic acid bacteria in vaccine delivery systems for mucosal immunizations are discussed. Their ...

  • Biogeochemistry of Forested Catchments in a Changing Environment

    The stability of forest ecosystems is affected by changes of environment conditions, like by increasing temperatures, increasing atmospheric CO2 and decreasing deposition rates of nutrients and acidity.This volume integrates the results of long term interdisciplinary ecosystem research at two forested watersheds in Germany with special emphasis on ...

  • Dynamics and Characterization of Marine Organic Matter

    Over the past decade the scientific activities of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS), which focuses on the role of the oceans in controlling climate change via the transport and storage of greenhouse gases and organic matter, have led to an increased interest in the study of the biogeochemistry of organic matter. There is also a ...

  • Dissolved Organic Matter in Lacustrine Ecosystems: Energy Source and System Regulator

    Concentrations of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in lakes are often an order of magnitude greater than concentrations of particulate organic matter; nevertheless, the biogeochemical analysis of DOM is described in only a few textbooks on limnology (most thoroughly by Wetzel). The orgins of dissolved organic substances are largely ...
