By D.C. Coleman, B. Fry (ed.)

Carbon Isotope innovations is a hands-on advent to utilizing carbon isotope tracers in experimental biology and ecology. It presents a simple bench-top reference with many simple-to-follow protocols for learning vegetation, animals, and soils. The 11C, 12C, 13C, and 14C carbon isotopes are thought of and traditional options are defined through confirmed authors. it is a artificial compilation of well-established techniques.
Researchers and scholars in quite a lot of disciplines spanning plant and soil technology, agricultural chemistry, forestry, ecology, oceanography, limnology, biogeochemistry, anthropology, and archaeology will locate Carbon Isotope concepts a priceless source.

Key Features
- gains isotopes in ecological research
- Highlights particular user-oriented techniques
- Considers carbon cycle in vegetation, soils, animals, air, and water
- presents examples and pattern calculations for radioisotopes in plant, soil, and aquatic biology

Bacterial Toxins: Methods and Protocols

The curiosity of investigators throughout a vast spectrum of medical dis- plines has been progressively inspired by means of the sector of bacterial toxin learn, a space that uses a wide number of organic, chemical, physicochemical, and medically orientated techniques. Researchers learning bacterial pollution must be accustomed to these kind of disciplines with a view to paintings successfully within the box.

Molecular Biology of Chromosome Function

Chromosomes have constitution, made up our minds by means of the interactions of proteins with DNA, and chromosomes have services, specifically, replication of DNA and transcription of messenger RNA.
