    Abstract: Climate change, a global phenomenon, has attracted scientists to contribute in anticipatory research to mitigate adverse impacts, which are more important for horticulture, considering that the scenario is in the midst of revolution, reaching the production level of 250 million tonnes in India. Impacts of climate variability have, invariably, profound influence on production and quality. An understanding of the impacts and relevant adaptation strategies are of foremost importance to sustain the productivity and profitability of horticulture crops in the climate change scenario, which necessitates synthesis of current knowledge to develop strategies for adaptation and mitigation to achieve climate-resilient horticulture. The book Climate-resilient horticulture: adaptation and mitigation strategies addresses the effects of climate change on different horticultural crops and focuses on the adaptation strategies based on the scientific knowledge generated by the experts in different agro-climatic regions in India. Issues have been covered in various chapters to make this book a treasure of knowledge in horticulture vis-a-vis climate change. Some of the crops included in the book are apple, grapes, cashew, banana, litchi, mango, coconut, oil palm, potato, tomato, cucurbits and flowers. In addition to strategies to be adapted in these crops, various other important aspects like carbon sequestration, pests and diseases, and urban landscaping are also covered in the book. Information on climatic risks and adaptation options for resilience in horticultural crops and future strategies and information on pest and disease dynamics on horticultural crops in relation to climate change and available mitigation strategies have also been documented. The book is edited by Dr H P Singh, a visionary leader, and his colleagues, which will be highly valuable to research workers, students, policy planners and farmers to understand and checkmate the adverse effect of climate change, so as to convert weakness into opportunity.℗

    Abstract: The book is a compilation of research work carried out on plant viruses during past 100 years in India. Plant viruses are important constraints in Indian agriculture. Tropical and sub-tropical environments and intensive crop cultivation practices ideally favours perpetuation of numerous plant viruses and their vectors in India, which often cause wide spread crop losses. Of all the plant pathogens, studies of plant viruses have received a special attention as they are difficult to manage. A large body of literature has been published on the plant virus research from India during past 100 years; however the information is so far not available in one place. This book provides comprehensive information on the biology, molecular biology, epidemics, crop losses, diagnosis and management of viruses and viroids occurring in India. Description of properties of the viruses are provided in the chapters comprising of ℗ different genera such as Allexivirus, Begomovirus, Babuvirus, Badnavirus, Carlavirus, Carmovirus, Cucumovirus, Closterovirus, Ilavirus, Mandrivirus, Potyvirus, Tospovirus, Tungrovirus and Sobemovirus. Virus-vector research related to aphid, thrips and whitefly is discussed. The work on the management aspects of plant viral diseases has been described with reference to the conventional, antiviral and transgenic approaches. Further, the quarantine mechanism developed in India for the exclusion of viruses and vectors has also been included. The book also provides useful information about the capacity building on the research and education on Plant Virology in India. Overall, the book covers a wide range of accounts of research findings and innovations in Plant Virology in India during past 100 years. The book will be a resourceful reference to the students, scientists, agricultural professionals and policy makers

    Abstract: Though great advances in public health are witnessed world over in recent years, infectious diseases, besides insect vector-borne infectious diseases remain a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Control of the epidemics caused by the non-vector borne diseases such as tuberculosis, avian influenza (H5N1), and cryptococcus gattii, have left a very little hope in the past. The advancement of research in science and technology has paved way for the development of new tools and methodologies to fight against these diseases. In particular, intelligent technology and machine-learning based methodologies have rendered useful in developing more accurate predictive tools for the early diagnosis of these diseases. In all these endeavors the main focus is the understanding that the process of transmission of an infectious disease is nonlinear (not necessarily linear) and dynamical in character. This concept compels the appropriate quantification of the vital parameters that govern these dynamics. This book is ideal for a general science and engineering audience requiring an in-depth exposure to current issues, ideas, methods, and models. The topics discussed serve as a useful reference to clinical experts, health scientists, public health administrators, medical practioners, and senior undergraduate and graduate students in applied mathematics, biology, bioinformatics, and epidemiology, medicine and health sciences

    Abstract: A number of driving forces, including the soaring global crude oil prices and environmental concerns in both developed and developing nations has triggered a renewed interest in the recent years on the R&D of biofuel crops. In this regard, many countries across the globe are investing heavily in the bioenergy sector for R&D to increase their energy security and reduce their dependence on imported fossil fuels. Currently, most of the biofuel requirement is met by sugarcane in Brazil and corn in the United States, while biodiesel from rapeseed oil in Europe. Sweet sorghum has been identified as a unique biofuel feedstock in India since it is well adapted to Indian agro-climatic conditions and more importantly it does not jeopardize food security at the cost of fuel. Sweet sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is considered as a SMART new generation energy crop as it can accumulate sugars in its stalks similar to sugarcane, but without food¬¬-fuel trade-offs and can be cultivated in almost all temperate and tropical climatic conditions and has many other advantages. The grain can be harvested from the panicles at maturity. There is no single publication detailing the agronomic and biochemical traits of tropical sweet sorghum cultivars and hybrid parents. Hence, an attempt is made in this publication- “Characterization of improved sweet sorghum cultivars” to detail the complete description of cultivars. This book serves as a ready reference on the detailed characterization of different improved sweet sorghum genotypes following the PPVFRA guidelines for the researchers, entrepreneurs, farmers and other stakeholders to identify the available sweet sorghum cultivars and understand their yield potential in tropics

    Abstract: 〈p〉Despite great advances in public health worldwide, insect vector-borne infectious diseases remain a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Diseases that are transmitted by arthropods such as mosquitoes, sand flies, fleas, and ticks affect hundreds of millions of people and account for nearly three million deaths all over the world. In the past there was℗ very little hope of controlling the epidemics caused by these diseases, but modern advancements in science and technology are providing a variety of ways in which these diseases can be handled. Clearly, the process of transmission of an infectious disease is a nonlinear (not necessarily linear) dynamic process which can be understood only by appropriately quantifying the vital parameters that govern these dynamics. 〈/p〉〈p〉The following aspects are associated with the modeling of the dynamics of infectious diseases:〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ Disease transmission dynamics〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ Predictive dynamics〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ Control dynamics〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ Relapse dynamics〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ Transformation of experimental results from closed (laboratory) environment to open (real world) environment〈/p〉〈p〉〈i〉Dynamic Models of Infectious Diseases ́€“ Vector Borne Diseases〈/i〉, presents a self-contained account of the dynamic modeling of diseases of vital importance transmitted by insect arthropods.℗ 〈/p〉〈p〉〈b〉〈i〉Key Features:〈/i〉〈/b〉〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ A thorough discussion on the design of effective disease control strategies〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ Presents a variety of predictive dynamical models for disease transmission〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ Provides an accessible and informative over view of known literature including several clinical practices〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ Exemplifies the role of information technology as a problem solver aiding effective early diagnosis and disease management〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ Demonstrates the importance of intelligent systems approach to decision-making in an interesting mix of domains ́€“ bioinformatics, health sciences, and infectious diseases〈/p〉〈p〉℗ʺ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ ℗ A variety of IT-based tools for surveillance and control of both vectors and disease transmissionThis book is ideal for a general science and engineering audience requiring an in-depth exposure to current issues, ideas, methods, and models.
