            This book is for those wanting to create vibrant, profitable and healthy food production systems. For the Love of Soil was written to communicate the often complex and technical know-how of soil in more digestible terms, with case studies from regenerative farmers, growers and... ranchers in Australasia and North America. I reveal what inspired these land managers to shift their thinking and what have been the results from a process of restoring the soil-gut-microbiome. We'll also explore the principles and tools so you can take actions to regenerate your own soil resource, no matter the scale.

            First Published in 1995. The three most important things to evaluate when selecting Chemical Protective Clothing (CPC) are: evidence of degradation of the garment exposed to a chemical; breakthrough time; and permeation rate. Because proper CPC selection must be based on permeati...on and degradation tests performed upon specific manufacturer products, an information source that enables you to access test results quickly and easily is needed. Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation and Degradation Compendium aims to be that source.

            First published in 1963. Humphry Davy, knighted by the Prince Regent in 1812 for his contributions to science, and later created baronet for his invention of the miners' safety lamp, was among the foremost European chemists in the early nineteenth century. Anne Treneer tells in f...ull the story of Humphry Davy's life. From letters, journals and memoirs of the time, Davy and his contemporaries come to life. This title will be of great interest to scientists and historians.

            First published in 1967. The impression is sometimes given that the Atomic Theory was revived in the early years of the nineteenth century by John Dalton, and that continuously from then on it has played a vital role in chemistry. The aim of this study is to revise this over-simp...lified picture. Atomic explanations seemed to chemists to go beyond the facts, to fail to lend themselves to mathematical expression, and to deny the ultimate simplicity and unity of all matter. Most, therefore, rejected them. Meanwhile, physicists were developing a whole range of atomic theories to explain the physical properties of bodies in terms of very simple atoms or particles. During the last thirty years of the century the position changed, as physicists and chemists came to agree on a common atomic theory. But the last prominent opponents of atomism were not converted until the early years of the twentieth century, by which time studies of radioactivity had made it clear that the billiard-ball Daltonian atom must, in any case, be abandoned.

            Students often think of science as disconnected pieces of information rather than a narrative that challenges their thinking, requires them to develop evidence-based explanations for the phenomena under investigation, and communicate their ideas in discipline-specific language as... to why certain solutions to a problem work. The author provides teachers in primary and junior secondary school with different evidence-based strategies they can use to teach inquiry science in their classrooms. The research and theoretical perspectives that underpin the strategies are discussed as are examples of how different ones areimplemented in science classrooms to affect student engagement and learning. Key Features: Presents processes involved in teaching inquiry-based science Discusses importance of multi-modal representations in teaching inquiry based-science Covers ways to develop scientifically literacy Uses the Structure of Observed learning Outcomes (SOLO) Taxonomy to assess student reasoning, problem-solving and learning Presents ways to promote scientific discourse, including teacher-student interactions, student-student interactions, and meta-cognitive thinking

            Provides a comprehensive guide to the use of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) on environmentally significant organic compounds This book presents a library of mass spectra of 1,725 biologically and environmentally important organic compounds, in the form of their tri...methylsilyl derivatives (TMS), as well as their linear temperature programmed chromatographic retention indices, RI, whose values are in the range of 700-4700 index units. Of the compounds presented, more than 60% of compounds have not previously been characterized by their mass spectra, and more than 70% not previously been characterized by their RI values. Some of these compounds, never before analysed via MS and GC, were detected by the author's team in plant tissues. The first chapters of the book are devoted to the methodology and practice of sample preparation, as well as to mass spectrometry considerations. They contain the discussion of possible complications and limitations of the method. The book includes lists of chemical compounds in alphabetical order, as well as in the order of their retention indices which facilitates the search for parameters of interest. Every compound in the book includes a RI value, mass spectrum, CAS number (if available), molecular and structural formula, formula weight, chemical name and list of synonyms, as well the source of compounds used for registration of spectrum and RI value. Features mass spectra and chromatographic retention indices of 1,725 organic substances in the form of their trimethylsilyl derivatives (TMS) Includes the CAS number, molecular and structural formula, formula weight, mass spectrum, chemical name and list of synonyms, and more for every compound covered within The first publication containing analytical parameters of high-boiling compounds such as glycosides, lignans, and phenylpropenoid glycerides with RI values >4000 GC-MS of Biologically and Environmentally Significant Organic Compounds will appeal to specialists

            Visible and Near Infrared Absorption Spectra of Human and Animal Haemoglobin determination and application

            Visible and Near Infrared Absorption Spectra of Human and Animal Haemoglobin determination and application (Paperback)

            The bright colour of haemoglobin has, from the very beginning, played a significant role in both the investigation of this compound as well as in the study of blood oxygen transport. Numerous optical methods have been developed for measuring haemoglobin concentration, oxygen satu...ration, and the principal dyshaemoglobins in vitro as well as in vivo. Modern applications include pulse oximeters, fibre optic oximeters, multiwavelength haemoglobin photometers ('co-oximeters') and instruments for near infrared spectroscopy in vivo. Knowledge of the light absorption spectra of the common haemoglobin derivatives is a prerequisite for the development and understanding of these techniques. In the 1960s a reference method based on the absorptivity of a single derivative (haemiglobincyanide; HiCN) at a single wavelength (540 nm) was established for measuring the total haemoglobin concentration. Thus an anchor value was provided on which the absorptivity spectra of all other haemoglobin derivatives could be based. This monograph presents absorption spectra and absorptivity data in the wavelength range of 480 to 1000 nm of the major haemoglobin derivatives for human adult and foetal haemoglobin and for haemoglobin of several animals (cow, dog, horse, pig, rat, and adult and foetal sheep). A detailed description of the methods used to acquire these data has been included to allow future investigators to reproduce and expand on the data. The second part of the monograph includes chapters on the principles and development, in historical perspective, of the principal methods for measuring total haemoglobin concentration for two, three, and multi-component analysis of haemoglobin derivatives, and for blood oxygen saturation measurement. Accurate quantitative data pertaining to haemoglobin in human blood are presented, together with a description of methods for measuring haemoglobin oxygen capacity and oxygen affinity. These chapters have been written with a view to foster
