    Abstract: This book reviews the history and development of rhizobial ecology (diversity, function and interactions with the biotic and abiotic environments), evolution (genome diversification, systematics of symbiotic genes) and application. Further, it describes the new concept of rhizobia, the latest systematic methods, biogeographic study methods, and genomic studies to identify the interactions between rhizobia, legumes and environments. To enable readers to gain a comprehensive understanding of rhizobial biogeography, the book provides effective protocols for the selection and application of high-efficiency rhizobial inoculants.

    Description / Table of Contents: Overview of Plant Pigments -- Carotenoids Biosynthesis Genomics -- Carotenoids in Human Nutrition -- Differential Transcription Factor Networks Orchestrate Flavonoid Biosynthesis -- Flavonoids Dietetics: Mechanisms and Emerging Roles of Plant Nutraceuticals -- The Betalain Secondary Metabolic Network -- Indicaxanthin Dietetics: Past, Present and Future -- Pigments in Citrus -- Pigments in Grape -- Pigments in Strawberry -- Carotenoids in Carrot -- Carotenoids in Green Vegetables and Health Aspects -- Anthocyanins in Staple Crops
    Abstract: This comprehensive treatise provides insight into pigment biosynthesis and dietetics. The text includes current reviews on the genomics of carotenoid, flavonoid, and betalain biosynthesis in plants and the dietetics of these pigments in humans. Pigments biosynthesized in plants are a source of attractive colors in nature and essential nutrients in our daily fruit, vegetable, and grain diet.℗ ℗ Deciphered from general perspectives and specific fruits and vegetables, genomics focuses on enzymatic genes and regulatory molecular mechanisms in the biosynthesis pathways to produce these pigments in plants. Dietetics focuses on the nutritional and medical benefits to human health from these pigments as nutrients, nutraceuticals, and disease prevention agents when they are ingested from pigment-abundant plant food and metabolized in human body. This work contributes to an expanding awareness of the dietetic benefits to the daily consumption of℗ pigment-rich fruit, vegetable, and grain food

    Abstract: This report presents data from a number of recent surveys undertaken in China, including the 1983 ecological survey, the 1973-1975 mortality survey, and the 1984 nitrosamine survey. "The chief purpose of the present monograph is simply to describe [population heterogeneity in China], by studying 65 rural counties and providing for each of them information on about 367 characteristics (82 standardized mortality rates from specific diseases, and 285 biochemical and other characteristics chiefly from a special 1983 survey of adult blood, urine, diet and lifestyle in two randomly chosen villages in each of those 65 counties)."
