Somatic Embryogenesis Fundamental Aspects and Applications Summary:

This book discusses basic and applied aspects of somatic embryogenesis, one of the most powerful tools in plant biotechnology. It is divided into three parts; Part I includes topics such as the history of this research field, how differentiated plant cells can (re)acquire totipotency, molecular features, as well as the epigenetics and proteomics of somatic embryogenesis. Part II covers the somatic embryogenesis of different crops, such as Agave spp. maize, Cocos nucifera, Bixa orellana, Capsicum spp., Coffea spp., Musa spp., Pinus spp., and Arabidopsis thaliana. Various applications, like scale-up propagation and genetic engineering are discussed in detail in Part III. The book will appeal to plant scientists, plant breeders and experts working in industry.

Sustainable Agriculture for Climate Change Adaptation Summary:

The Anthropocene, the time of humans. Never has human influence on the functioning of the planet been greater or in more urgent need of mitigation. Climate change, the accelerated warming of the planet’s surface attributed to human activities, is now at the forefront of global politics. The agriculture sector not only contributes to climate change but also feels the severity of its effects, with the water, carbon and nitrogen cycles all subject to modification as a result. Crop production systems are each subject to different types of threat and levels of threat intensity. There is however significant potential to both adapt to and mitigate climate change within the agricultural sector and reduce these threats. Each solution must be implemented in a sustainable manner and tailored to individual regions and farming systems. This Special Issue evaluates a variety of potential climate change adaptation and mitigation techniques that account for this spatial variation, including modification to cropping systems, Climate-Smart Agriculture and the development and growth of novel crops and crop varieties.

Food and Human Responses Summary:

This book discusses the role of food and the human nutrition-behavior interface. Food makes us what we are, but in addition to providing adequate nutrition, does it influence behavior? This book looks at this critical question from various angles and considers different concepts and approaches to food, nutrition and well-being. To better understand the entire gamut of the food-behavior linkage, the author unravels the workings of the mind - brain link. The book discusses this aspect and the findings add to the existing fund of knowledge in this area. Much of today’s malaise in humans can be traced to the food consumed by individuals. This book provides a comprehensive picture of the current state of human nutrition and how this can be linked to behavior.

Tea sector review Georgia Summary:

This study was produced under an FAO-EBRD Cooperation project on reviewing the development potential of the tea sectors of Azerbaijan and Georgia. As a result of the joint research in the two countries carried out as part of the project, a similar separate review of the Azerbaijani tea sector was also published under the FAO Investment Centre's Knowledge for Investment (K4I) programme. Tea has a long tradition of cultivation in Azerbaijan and Georgia, dating back to the nineteenth century. The structural changes that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s led to a dramatic decline of the two countries’ tea sectors. However, interest in tea production in Georgia and Azerbaijan has increased in recent years and, in an effort to revive their once thriving tea sectors, governments have adopted sector development programmes that provide for support to primary tea production. In spite of the long tradition and accumulated know-how of tea production and processing, there is little doubt that investments in both technology and knowledge will be required for the Azerbaijani and Georgian tea sectors to grow in a successful and sustainable way. Production focused on efficiency and quality and mindful of shifts in consumer preferences on global markets, but also of potential environmental risks, will be critical in achieving this goal. This publication is part of the Country Investment Highlights series under the FAO Investment Centre's Knowledge for Investment (K4I) programme.

Optimization of Industrial Systems Summary:

OPTIMIZATION of INDUSTRIAL SYSTEMS Including the latest industrial solution-based practical applications, this is the most comprehensive and up-to-date study of the optimization of industrial systems for engineers, scientists, students, and other professionals. In order to deal with societal challenges, novel technologies play an important role. For the advancement of technology, it is essential to share innovative ideas and thoughts on a common platform where researchers across the globe meet together and revitalize their knowledge and skills to tackle the challenges that the world faces. The high complexity of the issues related to societal interdisciplinary research is the key to future revolutions. From research funders to journal editors, policymakers to think tanks, all seem to agree that the future of research lies outside disciplinary boundaries. In such prevailing conditions, various working scenarios, conditions, and strategies need to be optimized. Optimization is a multidisciplinary term, and its essence can be inculcated in any domain of business, research, and other associated working dynamics. Globalization provides all-around development, and this development is impossible without technological contributions. This volume’s mission is at the core of industrial engineering. All the manuscripts appended in this volume were double-blind peer-reviewed by committee members and the review team, promising high-quality research. This book provides deep insights to its readers about the current scenarios and future advancements of industrial engineering.
