Title:For Better or For Worse? Collaborative Couples in the Sciences [electronic resource]
Author(s): Annette Lykknes
Donald L Opitz
Brigitte Van Tiggelen
Date:2012
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this volume, a distinguished set of international scholars examine the nature of collaboration between life partners in the sciences, with particular attention to the ways in which personal and professional dynamics can fosteror inhibit scientific practice. Breaking from traditional gender analyses which focus on divisions of labor and the assignment of credit, the studies scrutinize collaboration as a variable process between partners living in thenineteenth and twentieth centuries who were marri ed and divorced, heterosexual and homosexual, aristocratic and working-class and politically right and left. The contributors analyze cases shaped by their particular geographicallocations, ranging from retreat settings like the English countryside and Wo ods Hole, Massachusetts, to university laboratories and urbancenters in Berlin, Stockholm, Geneva and London. The volume demonstrates how the terms andmeanings of collaboration, variably shaped by disciplinary imperatives, cultural mores, and the agency o f the collaborators themselves, illuminate critical intellectual and institutional developments in the modern sciences

Title:Photoprotection in Plants [electronic resource] : Optical Screening-based Mechanisms
Author(s): Alexei Solovchenko
Date:2010
Edition:First
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Optical screening of excessive and potentially harmful solar radiation is an important photoprotective mechanism, though it has received much less attention in comparison with other systems preventing photooxidative damage tophotoautotrophic organism s. This photoprotection in the form of screening appears to be especially important for juvenile and senescing plants as well as under environmental stressesi.e. in situations where the efficiency ofenzymatic ROS elimination, DNA repair and other classica l photoprotective systems could be impaired. This book represents an attempt to develop an integral view of optical screening-based photoprotection in microalgae and higherplants. Towards this end, the key groups of pigments involved in the screening of u ltraviolet and visible components of solar radiation in microalgae and higher plants, and the patterns of their accumulation and distribution withinplant cells and tissues, are described. Special attention is paid to the manifestations of screening pigmen t accumulation in the optical spectra of plants. It is also demonstrated that understanding these effects and theirrelationships to screening pigments makeup and spectroscopy in plants provides valuable insights into the state of plants long-term photoacc limation, as well as ample opportunities for the non-destructive quantification ofscreening pigments and the assessment of the efficiency of photoprotection providing by these pigments in situ

Title:Statistical Design [electronic resource]
Author(s): George Casella
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Although statistical design is one of the oldest branches of statistics, its importance is ever increasing, especially in the face of the data flood that often faces statisticians. It is important to recognize the appropriatedesign, and to understand how to effectively implement it, being aware that the default settings from a computer package can easily provide an incorrect analysis. The goal of this book is to describe the principles that drive gooddesign, paying attention to both the theoretical b ackground and the problems arising from real experimental situations. Designs are motivated through actual experiments, ranging from the timeless agricultural randomized complete block,to microarray experiments, which naturally lead to split plot designs and balanced incomplete blocks. George Casella is Distinguished Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Florida. He is active in many aspectsof statistics, having contributed to theoretical statistics in the areas of decision theory and statistical confidence, to environmental statistics, and has more recently concentrated efforts in statistical genomics. He also maintainsactive research interests in the theory and application of Monte Carlo and other computationally intensive metho ds. He is listed as an ISI Highly Cited Researcher. In other capacities, Professor Casella has served as Theory andMethods Editor of the Journal of the American Statistical Association, 1996-1999, Executive Editor of Statistical Science, 2001-2004, and Co -Editor of the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B, 2009-2012. He has served onthe Board of Mathematical Sciences of the National Research Council, 1999-2003, and many committees of both the American Statistical Association and the Institut e of Mathematical Statistics. Professor Casella has co-authored fivetextbooks: Variance Components, 1992 Theory of Point Estimation, Second Edition, 1998 Monte Carlo Statistical Methods, Second Edit

Title:Applied Mathematical Demography [electronic resource]
Author(s): Nathan Keyfitz
Hal Caswell
Date:2005
Edition:Third Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The third edition of this classic text maintains its focus on applications of demographic models, while extending its scope to matrix models for stage-classified populations. The authors first introduce the life table to describeage-specific mortalit y, and then use it to develop theory for stable populations and the rate of population increase. This theory is then revisited in the context of matrix models, for stage-classified as well as age-classifiedpopulations. Reproductive value and the stable eq uivalent population are introduced in both contexts, and Markov chain methods are presented to describe the movement of individuals through the life cycle. Applications of mathematicaldemography to population projection and forecasting, kinship, microdemo graphy, heterogeneity, and multi-state models are considered. The new edition maintains and extends the books focus on the consequences of changes in the vitalrates. Methods are presented for calculating the sensitivity and elasticity of population growth rate, life expectancy, stable stage distribution, and reproductive value, and for applying those results in comparative studies.Stage-classified models are important in both human demography and population ecology, and this edition features examples from both human and non-human populations. In short, this third edition enlarges considerably the scope and powerof demography. It will be an essential resource for students and researchers in demography and in animal and plant population ecology. Nathan Keyf itz is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Harvard University. After holding positions atCanadas Dominion Bureau of Statistics, the University of Chicago, and the University of California at Berkeley, he became Andelot Professor of Sociology and Demography at Harvard in 1972. After retiring from Harvard, he becameDirector of the Population Program at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Vienna from 1983 to 1993. Keyfi
