Biodiversity can be quite easily defined as the diversity or variety of living organisms on this planet. It has been understood as the measure of the variety of organisms present in different ecosystems. This can refer to genetic variation, ecosystem variation or species variation within an area, biome or planet. This book entitled ‚ÄúA new horizons in Biodiversity‚ÄĚ consists of 23 chapters. The chapters are mainly focused on the diversity of Molluscs, Planktons, fishes, Crabs, Silkworms, Butterflies, Insects, Crustaceans, Spiders, etc., The authors have put an effort to explain each and every point of respective diversities. This book has been brought to the society, keeping in mind students of graduate and post graduate, research scholars and teaching faculty.

Animal physiology is the study of the internal physical and chemical functions of animals. Professionals in this field may explore the makeup of animals, including their genetics, behaviours and their biological structure. A degree in animal physiology can lead to opportunities in a wide variety of areas, including fisheries, veterinary sciences and pharmaceutical research. This book entitled ‚ÄúAnimal Physiology‚ÄĚ consists of 25 chapters. The chapters are mainly focused on the physiological changes in the animals when exposed to toxicants, drugs, phytochemicals, etc., The authors have put an effort to explain each and every point of respective studies. This book has been brought to the society, keeping in mind students of graduate and post graduate, research scholars and teaching faculty.
The term biotechnology is a fusion of biology and technology. The area is multidisciplinary, vast and highly divergent, which has made precise definition of the subject rather difficult, it is a basically the controlled use of biological agents, such as micro-organisms or cellular components for human beneficial use.This book entitled ‚ÄúBiotechnology for Human welfare‚ÄĚ consists of 34 chapters. The chapters are mainly focused on the newer technological aspects in molecular biology, bioremediation, toxicology etc.,The authors have put an effort to explain each and every point in the procedures. This book has been brought to the society, keeping in mind students of graduate and post graduate, research scholars and teaching faculty.

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.
