This second edition of a well-received book focuses on rhythmic behaviour in plants, which regulates all developmental and adaptive responses and can thus be regarded as quintessential to life itself. The chapters provide a timely update on recent advances in this field and comprehensively summarize the current state of knowledge concerning the molecular and physiological mechanisms behind circadian and ultradian oscillations in plants, their physiological implications for growth and development and adaptive responses to a dynamic environment. Written by a diverse group of leading researchers, the book will spark the interest of readers from many branches of science: from physicists and chemists wishing to learn about the multi-faceted rhythms in plants, to biologists and ecologists involved in the state-of-the-art modelling of complex rhythmic phenomena.

Several books have been published on scaling in biology and its ramifications in the animal kingdom. However, none has specifically examined the multifaceted effects of how changes in human height create disproportionately larger changes in weight, surface area, strength and other physiological parameters. Yet, the impact of these non-linear effects on individual humans as well as our world's environment is enormous. Since increasing human body size has widespread ramifications, this book presents findings on the human species and its ecological niche. In biology, an ecological niche' refers to the role played by a species in its community and how the species interacts with its environment. Thus, a few chapters provide an ecological overview of how increasing human body size relates to human evolution, fitness, health, survival and the environment. This book provides a unique purview of the laws of scaling on human performance, health, longevity and the environment. Numerous examples from various research disciplines are used to illustrate the impact of increasing body size on many aspects of human enterprises, including work output, athletics and intellectual performance.

"This publication is focused on coenzyme Q. The topics span from biochemical aspects to biomedical implications and clinical use of CoQ10. Several papers are focused on bioenergetics and on biosynthesis; new work is presented on the existence of supercomplexes of the mitochondrial respiratory chain and the role of coenzyme Q diffusion in membranes. The antioxidant aspects as well as the non-mitochondrial electron transport systems are addressed. Coenzyme Q biosynthesis is more deeply investigated in yeast and in Caenorhabditis elegans. Some articles refer to plasma and tissue concentrations of CoQ10, including values in childhood. Physiological and clinical issues are also deeply investigated: they confirm the use of coenzyme Q10 as a coadjuvant in the treatment of different pathologies involving energy deficiency or oxidative stress. Studies on cardiovascular disease and on neurological syndromes are reported. The effect of CoQ10 administration on ageing is addressed in some animal models. Moreover clinical trials are presented on new fields, for CoQ research, such as age-related macular degeneration and idiopathic asthenozoospermia. This book provides a deeper insight into the multifaceted use of Coenzyme Q and is of interest to a large number of readers working in different biochemical and medical fields."

This book provides dental professionals with a clear understanding of current clinical and scientific knowledge on the various aspects of pulp treatment for both primary and young permanent teeth. Diagnostic parameters are clearly presented, along with step-by-step descriptions of clinical procedures, including indirect and direct pulp treatments, pulpotomy, and pulpectomy. The rationale for the materials used in each technique and their individual merits and disadvantages are examined in detail. In the case of pulpotomy, all the materials used since the introduction of this treatment modality are discussed (e.g., formocresol, glutaraldehyde, ferric sulfate, and MTA) and the roles of sodium hypochlorite, electrofulguration, and laser therapy are elucidated. Special attention is devoted to pulpectomy and root canal treatment, with consideration of debriding and obturation techniques, rinsing solutions, and root-filling pastes. A further individual chapter is dedicated to restorations of teeth treated with the different types of pulp therapy. The various conservative treatment modalities are also presented, including specific treatments for immature nonvital permanent teeth. The concluding chapter looks to the future and the potential value of stem cells in pulp therapy.​
