Breeding of Horticultural Crops
V. PonnuswamiT. Sumathi
Horticultural crops are those that serve to fit the special food and aesthetic needs of humans. In horticultural crops, quality is supreme. While it is true that there is no arguing about taste, the fact of the matter is that many horticultural crop cultivars with unique qualities are so unique, admired, and appreciated that they become the basis for entire industries. Examples include the 'Bartlett' ('Williams') pear which dominates fresh fruit production and is almost the only cultivar used for processing, 'Hayward' kiwifruit, 'Smooth Cayenne' pineapple (for processing), 'Clementine' mandarin, and 'Dwarf Cavendish' banana. In horticultural crops, breeding objectives must be consumer directed because consumers make individual decisions about consumption and make choices between different cultivars and alternate crop species. Innovations of individual breeders combined with further breeding efforts to increase usefulness and adaptation are the key to horticultural progress. It is clear that a way must be found to incorporate consumer satisfaction in the selection process. The contents includes l Objectives and Scope of Plant Breeding l Modes of Reproduction, Mating Systems & Their Significance on Population Structure l Modes of Pollination Control and Systems of Breeding l Sterility and Incompatibility Systems l Genetic Properties of Populations Under Equilibrium; Changes in Gene & Genotypic Frequency, Genetic Load, Genetic Drift l Factors Affecting Gene and Genotypic Frequency l Factors of Evolution and Speciation, Importance of Biodiversity Conservation l Implication of Taxonomy In Breeding l Mendalian Inheritance and Non Mendalian Inheritance l Crop Improvement Methods – Plant Introduction and Selection; Through Hybridization; Pedigree Breeding; Bulk and Single Seed Descent Method; Mass Selection,Recurrent and Reciprocal Recurrent Selection; Back Cross Breeding l Development of F1 Hybrids l Synthetics and Composites l Mutation Breeding l Polyploidy Breeding l Breeding Methods for Perennial Horticultural Crops l Breeding Methods for Annual Horticultural Crops l Breeding for Biotic Resistance l Breeding for Abiotic Stress Resistance l Molecular Markers,Genetic Fedelity Conformation and Markers Assisted Selection l Genetic Transformation Methods in Plants l Gene Silencing It is hoped that this book will be useful to all stakeholders involved in breeding in Horticulture. The book is designed to prepare students for postgraduate school or careers in research and development of horticultural crops. ..more

Nutraceutical Spirulina : Commercial Cultivation Using Rural Technology in India
Pushpa Srivastava
Spirulina - the blue green alga is worldwide known for its highest nutrient contents in a balanced form required for human body. As such it has been raised from "nutrient" to "Nutraceutical, since it is food and medicine too. Its potentials were realised but its cultivation in semiarid zone of Rajasthan and seismatic zone of Gujarat remained an enigma. This book provides solutions to problems and makes Spirulina cultivation production within the reach of rich and poor both. It holds a great future so far its marketing is concerned. At home it has been less popular plant, since most of the produce is exported as it brings exciting revenue. However, the simplified technology not only makes it easily cultivated commercial alga, rather simultaneously provides handsome profits. It is a unique plant which provides health to its consumer and wealth to its cultivator. The book is divided into 20-sections, covering almost all aspects of Spirulina cultivation including problems and their solutions. It covers a comprehensive literature on algal biotechnology in general and Rajasthan in particular. Significance of chemical composition is highlighted. The physical factors and chemical requirements that influence the biomass production are given sufficient space in the book. Ground nut shell ash extract - a novel nutrient added to the composition of the medium, is first on record. Commercial cultivation at Rajasthan and Gujarat states provide sufficient data for its production in any part of the country. The comparative account of the two states stands a witness to this fact. The nutrient rich Spirulina proved its pharmaceutical significance in a number of diseases included in sections 10-18 that justify its designation as Nutraceutical. This book provides entire information pertaining to Spirulina cultivation in the country-side, cheap and easy and ruling out the myths about its production in rural areas. It will be an asset to botanists, scientists, research scholars and more so to enterpreneurs, who can happily lay their hands on commercial cultivation of Spirulina.  ..more

Index. “Since the 1980s health-conscious consumers, especially in developed countries, have been concerned about the possible adverse effects that “harshly preserved” food might have on their health and on the health of future generations. The philosophy of consumers has changed from, “How long will I live?” to “How well will I lie?” which in turn has shifted the desire of these consumers to nutritious, natural, and minimally processed foods that have not been subjected to “harsh processing” or “harsh preservation” techniques. Due to changes in socio-economic patterns and life styles, many consumers are also interested in foods that have a long shelf-life and take very little time to prepare. The suitability of several nonthermal processing and preservation methods are being searched to produce such foods. Various conventional and modern food preservation methods, are elaborately explained and discussed in this book. The book should prove to be an useful source of information for the students of food microbiology, food science and technology, food biotechnology, home science, agriculture, horticulture, environmental sciences, hotel and catering management as well as other food related curses. This book will also be useful for the people who are working in food processing, catering houses and food research institutes.” ..more

Asha Gupta
Rapid population growth, increasing urbanization, industrialization, commercial and residential developments and intensive agricultural practices have resulted in increase in production of domestic and industrial sewage, agricultural runoff, fertilizers and insecticides leading to the degradation of surface and groundwater quality adversely affecting human health and the natural environment. Once contaminated it becomes necessary to regularly monitor the quality of water and to devise ways and means to protect and manage it for ensuring better livelihoods and sustainable development. Specific contaminants leading to pollution in water include a range of of chemicals, pathogens, and physical changes such as elevated temperature. Problems caused by the increase of pollutant loads discharged into natural water bodies require regulation based on assessment of scientific results that relate pollutant discharge with changes in water quality. Understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of a wide range of issues including the physical processes of mixing and dilution, chemical and biological processes, data acquisition and measurement, involved in water quality modelling help in taking appropriate management decisions. The book covers variety of topics viz., Water pollution : sources effects and control; Adverse performance of hydropower projects due to chemical nature of water; Ecological stress on the diversity of aquatic flora and fauna; Toxicity of ammonium perchlorate waste water fish Tilapia massambica; Toxicity of chlorinated pesticides on vital organs of fish Puntius tiato; Impact of heavy metal contamination of industrial waste water on cultivated vegetables; Distribution of heavy metals in lake sediments; Rate of reparian vegetation in pollution abatement, Water equality analysis of community ponds; Comparative assessment of ground water; Effects of elevated temperatures on phytoplankton population, Environmetric models in the assessment of surface water quality; Investigation on the physico chemical parameters of tropical river; Ground water arsenic contamination; application of mathematical models in aquatic pollution assessment. Chapter on affect of carbon sources on the biomass build-up and degradation of rubber processing industing effluent have added value to the book. Thus the book provides a glimpse of water pollution studies involving assessment of a wide range of data and interdisciplinary processes so as to apply for more efficient methods of water pollution modelling and management.  ..more
