Laboratory Manual for General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry
The Laboratory Manual for General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry by Applegate, Neely, and Sakuta was authored to be the most current lab manual available for the GOB market, incorporating the most modern instrumentation and techniques. Illustrations and chemical structures were developed by the authors to conform to the most recent IUPAC conventions. A problem solving methodology is also utilized throughout the laboratory exercises. The Laboratory Manual for General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry by Applegate, Neely, and Sakuta is also designed with flexibility in mind to meet the differing lengths of GOB courses and variety of instrumentation available in GOB labs. Helpful instructor materials are also available on this companion website, including answers, solution recipes, best practices with common student issues and TA advice, sample syllabi, and a calculation sheet for the Density lab.

A comprehensive and mechanistic perspective on fruit ripening, emphasizing commonalities and differences between fruit groups and ripening processes.
Fruits are an essential part of the human diet and contain important phytochemicals that provide protection against heart disease and cancers. Fruit ripening is of importance for human health and for industry-based strategies to harness natural variation, or genetic modification, for crop improvement.
This book covers recent advances in the field of plant genomics and how these discoveries can be exploited to understand evolutionary processes and the complex network of hormonal and genetic control of ripening. The book explains the physiochemical and molecular changes in fruit that impact its quality, and recent developments in understanding of the genetic, molecular and biochemical basis for colour, flavour and texture. It is a valuable resource for plant and crop researchers and professionals, agricultural engineers, horticulturists, and food scientists.
- Reviews the physiochemical and molecular changes in fruit which impact flavour, texture, and colour
- Covers recent advances in genomics on the genetic, molecular, and biochemical basis of fruit quality
- Integrates information on both hormonal and genetic control of ripening
- Relevant for basic researchers and applied scientists

This unique, practical, pocket-sized guide and reference provides every first year bioscience student with all they need to know to prepare reagents correctly and perform fundamental laboratory techniques. It also helps them to analyse their data and present their findings, in addition to directing the reader, via a comprehensive list of references, to relevant further reading All of the core bioscience laboratory techniques are covered including: basic calculations and the preparation of solutions; aseptic techniques; microscopy techniques; cell fractionation; spectrophotometry; chromatography of small and large molecules: electrophoresis of proteins and nucleic acids and data analysis. In addition the book includes clear, relevant diagrams and worked examples of calculations. In short, this is a ‘must-have’ for all first year bioscience students struggling to get to grips with this vitally important element of their course.
Pollinators play a vital role in ecosystem health and are essential to ensuring food security. With declines in both managed and wild pollinator populations in recent years, scientists and regulators have sought answers to this problem and have explored implementing steps to protect pollinator populations now and for the future. Pesticide Risk Assessment for Pollinators focuses on the role pesticides play in impacting bee populations and looks to develop a risk assessment process, along with the data to inform that process, to better assess the potential risks that can accompany the use of pesticide products.
Pesticide Risk Assessment for Pollinators opens with two chapters that provide a biological background of both Apis and non-Apis species of pollinators. Chapters then present an overview of the general regulatory risk assessment process and decision-making processes. The book then discusses the core elements of a risk assessment, including exposure estimation, laboratory testing, and field testing. The book concludes with chapters on statistical and modeling tools, and proposed additional research that may be useful in developing the ability to assess the impacts of pesticide use on pollinator populations.
Summarizing the current state of the science surrounding risk assessment for Apis and non-Apis species, Pesticide Risk Assessment for Pollinators is a timely work that will be of great use to the environmental science and agricultural research communities.
- Assesses pesticide risk to native and managed pollinators
- Summarizes the state of the science in toxicity testing and risk assessment
- Provides valuable biological overviews of both Apis and non-Apis pollinators
- Develops a plausible overall risk assessment framework for regulatory decision making
- Looks towards a globally harmonized approach for pollinator toxicity and risk assessment
