Making nature, shaping culture: plant biodiversity in global context

, : Making nature, shaping culture: plant biodiversity in global context. Making nature, shaping culture: plant biodiversity in global context: xiii + 261 pp.

This book addresses issues previously viewed as primarily technical concerning the germplasm debate: that is, how, what, and where to store the range of genetic materials necessary to reproduce plants. By examining Brazil, Chile, France and the USA, the authors show how different cultures respond to the decline in genetic diversity. The findings show that the quest for uniformity in foods, agriculture and environment eventually threatens everyone.

Nikaido T.; Ohmoto T.; Saitoh H.; Sankawa U.; Sakuma S.; Shoji J., 1982: Inhibitors of cyclic amp phospho di esterase in polygala tenuifolia. cAMP phosphodiesterase inhibitors contained in P. tenuifolia were identified as saponins and oleic acid. The concentrations of onjisaponins E, F and G required to give 50% inhibition (IC50) were of the same order as that of papaverine. A kinetic s...

Baird, D.T.; Swanston, I.; Scaramuzzi, R.J., 1976: Pulsatile release of LH and secretion of ovarian steroids in sheep during the luteal phase of the estrous cycle. The concentration of LH and progesterone in jugular venous plasma and the secretion of steroids by the ovary were measured every 10 minutes for 2 hours on days 12, 14, and 16 of the oestrous cycle in 5 ewes with utero-ovarian auto-transplants. A p...

Bartonella spp. are small hemotropic bacteria infecting mammals. Four Bartonella species have been recently described in cattle and wild ruminants. To date, the biology and possible pathogenic role of Bartonella species isolated from ruminants are...

Long, R.M.; Moore, L., 1986: Inhibition of liver endoplasmic reticulum calcium pump by CCl4 and release of a sequestered calcium pool. One of the earliest effects observed in rat liver after CCl4 administration is inhibition of an ATP-dependent calcium pump found at the endoplasmic reticulum. This report confirms that the amount of calcium associated with the microsomal fraction...

The development of type IIa alimentary hyperlipoproteinemia in rats was accompanied by changes in activity of glutathione-dependent enzymes, exhaustion of the reserves of antioxidant vitamins in the liver and blood, and intensification of lipid pe...

Jarvis, M.R.; Pérez, R.; Payne, M.C., 2001: Can atomic force microscopy achieve atomic resolution in contact mode?. Atomic force microscopy operating in the contact mode is studied using total-energy pseudopotential calculations. It is shown that, in the case of a diamond tip and a diamond surface, it is possible for a tip terminated by a single atom to sustain...

Benichou, J.; Wacholder, S., 1994: A comparison of three approaches to estimate exposure-specific incidence rates from population-based case-control data. In population-based case-control studies, an attempt is made to identify all incident cases diagnosed in a specified population during a fixed time interval. Assuming that this goal is met allows one to obtain measures of risk other than relative...
