Plants in action : adaptation in nature, performance in cultivation [Monograph]
Atwell, B.J. \ Kriedemann, P.E. \ Turnbull, C.G.N. \ 1999
plant physiology - textbooks - ecophysiology - agroecology

Plants in Action explores basic principles underlying plant biology in natural and managed communities throughout Australasia. By providing up-to-date and useful perspectives on plant science, this book will appeal immediately to upper level undergraduates in Universities and tertiary Institutes of Technology where plant physiology forms part of their degree coursework in Agriculture, Horticulture, Forestry and Environmental Sciences. Postgraduate students as well as professional plant scientists will also find much useful source material in this textbook because the narrative is built on credible experiments and richly illustrated with original data. Numerous vignettes provide a human background to new knowledge that is readily transparent and structured for easy 'grazing'. In both name and actuality, Plants in Action embodies practical applications of plant science in nature and global commerce. World markets are already crowded with high quality texts on plant physiology. Basic principles are thus well covered, but neither application of principles, nor acknowledgment of Australasian contributions to plant science is well covered in texts from the northern hemisphere. Where practical, but without jingoism, Australasian examples and case studies are used to illustrate original science as well as practical applications of that science; hence the subtitle: Adaptation in Nature, and Performance in Cultivation. Table of contents: I. Perspectives on plant science. II. Processes and resources for growth. III. Coordination of growth and reproduction. IV. Ecophysiology in natural and managed communities.

Postharvest biology [Monograph] - [2nd ed]
Kays, S.J. \ Paull, R.E. \ cop. 2004
postharvest physiology - postharvest systems - postharvest treatment - postharvest losses - postharvest decay - postharvest quality

The book focuses on the environmental factors modulating and functional processes controlling physical and chemical changes in live plants and plant products after harvest. The book provides a concise overview of the theoretical principles and processes governing these changes. Included are fruits, agronomic crops, fruits, vegetables, flowers, nuts, woody ornamentals, seeds and other forms of plant propagules and turf grasses, with examples ranging from intact plants to pollen. Emphasis is placed on the basic principles operative.

Safety in the agri-food chain [Monograph]Table of contents
Luning, P.A. \ Devlieghere, F. \ Verhé, R. \ 2006
food safety - food quality - systems - quality controls - risk assessment - agro-industrial chains - quality management

This book covers the total agri-food chain. The first section includes a chapter giving a clear overview of the food production chain, followed by chapters about distinct safety risk factors (biological, chemical, physical and others) occurring in the agri-food chain. The third section deals with various systems to handle these risk factors. It includes a chapter on the various Quality assurance systems, a detailed chapter on HACCP, as well as on risk management, modelling of safety, and tracking and tracing. The last section includes chapters on the different stakeholders (consumer, legislation, ethics) that are concerned with food safety. The book is aimed at supporting educational programmes on safety in agri-food chains in higher education and at the academic level. It can also be used as a handbook in food industry and agri-business.
