The book A Rendezvous of Words is a collection of poems in English. It features poets from the length and breadth of India and also from across the borders like Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan and Bangladesh. It is an amalgamation of original as well as translated poems with a heady combination of new and established poets.
Volumes of books are available to address different techniques of multivariate analysis, which are used extensively by Social Science Researchers. In this book, attempts have been made to provide more frequently used techniques at one place and demonstrates use of these techniques through simple examples, which would be handy to use by non-statistical background researchers, as well. The book covers statistical techniques such as; multivariate regression analysis, factor analysis, path analysis, log-linear regression analysis, simultaneous equations, cluster analysis and step-wise regression analysis. The book also tries to address as how one can interpret the relationships and conclude the results obtained by adopting different multivariate techniques. The Annexures of book demonstrate examples to use various techniques and required statistical test tables.
Biological Control of Crop Diseases: Recent Advances and Perspectives Part: 1 Horticultural Crops, Part 2: Cereals, Pulses, Oil seeds and other corps presents up-to-date research findings on crop disease management to provide with a single-source reference text for developing a sustainable ecosystem that doesn't depend on harmful and unhealthy agrochemicals. The Comprehensive research articles in this book represents the key subjects covered by invited authors. This unique book presnets fresh ideas and innovative strategies for finding meaningful solutions to the problems of disease control and provides an excellent source of currently used bioconrol agents (BCA) for Management of major corp diseases and their potential use in agricultural crop production in India. It is an invaluable reference resource for academics and extension scientists working the area of crop protection

The present volume is the first in the series on the ‚ÄúBreeding of Horticultural crops‚ÄĚ. Each volume in the series being edited by very eminent scientists in the field. Dr.V.A.Parthasarathy an eminent Horticultural scientists is the Senior Editor for the series.
The first volume is devoted to Spices and Plantation crops as India has a great tradition in these crops. Many a foreign invasion into this country has been primarily for gaining control over Spice Trade. India is also a leading producer of different spices and plantation crops and the research on these crops have started over a century ago in Kerala at Kasaragod. Hence, it was decided to start the series with these wonderful crops which has a great bearing on Indian economy.
The book is divided into two parts, namely, plantation crops and spices. Twelve spice crops and nine plantation crops have been covered in this book. Each crop has been dealt in detail under various headings such as History and origin, Species and cultivars, Cytogenetics, Genetic resources survey, collection, conservation and evaluation; blossom biology, breeding objectives, approaches for crop improvement using various methods ,molecular aided breeding , biotechnological approaches, marker-assisted selection, bioinformatics, IPR issues and finally achievements and future thrusts.
The book would be great use to all researchers in Horticulture in general and to those working on these crops. This would be valuable text for M.Sc and Ph.D. courses as well for ICAR NET and ARS exams.
