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.

The present flora is the outcome of thorough botanical axploration of Mysore district over a period of 5 years and forms a distinct contribution towards the knowledge of the flora of Karnataka.The flora will meet the long felt needs of students teachers,for esters and other field botanists.The most important aspects about the flora is the novel approach in presenting the keys.All the species are keyed direct to the species level instead of passing through families and genera as it is normally practised in all the existing floras. Apart from treating the native flora in detail,it also includes and provides keys to naturalised as well as commonly cultivated plants.
This practical manual is an excellent compilation of techniques for researchers interested in various aspects dealing with cyanobacteria, besides providing basic knowledge on this fascinating group of organisms. Despite the availability of similar compilations, this stands out in terms of its clarity and ‚Äúsimple to understand and do- language‚ÄĚ, besides information on the latest advances in the field. Beginning with the basics of isolation, followed by purification and identification, the manual uses simple and effective vocabulary for those working with cyanobacteria, beginners or interested scholars. An important inclusion is the section on microscopy, from light microscropy to electron microscopy, which is a fascinating topic for those interested in understanding the ultrastructural features of these photosynthetic prokaryotes. Axenization and getting clones are one of the difficult aspects of cyanobacteriology and these details are given well, with illustrations. The protocols for lipid and protein extraction are explained in detail, and the use of molecular tools is also dealt suitably. The chapter on preservation of cyanobacteria, an important set of techniques for maintenance and storage, provides useful information not only for researchers, but also for germplasm culture collection curators. Overall, this compilation will provide useful for all researchers, particularly those interested in using cyanobacteria as their workhorses in their research programs.
Keeping the view in mind that environmental monitoring and crop management are of vital importance and that hese are essential parts of modern agricultural experimentation,the present symposium volume has been compiled.The subject matter of the volume has been presented in four parts,viz.(1) Abiotic environment and crops,(2) biotic environment and crops,(3) edaphic environment and crops and (4) modification of biotic environment and crops and quality,representing the four sessions for presentation of the papers.At length discussions were held on three driving variables of environment namely precipitation,relative humidity and temperature of the area and their impacts on crop production,herbagebiomass, carbon,nitrogen,fertilizers,animal numbers etc.
Presents Conceptual Synthesis of advance achieved in frontiers of Knowledge and Research in India. The textual contents are spread over special Lectures and research papers of frontline applied phycologists and depicts fine intermeshing fabric of applied Phycology ramifying in realms of applied aspects of diverse sciences of agriculture, physiology, microbiology, biochemistry, Medicine and Environmental biology. The impact of applied phycology would remain obscure until it reaches both scholars pursueing advance courses and research, administrators, and common man alike to wed the Scientific advance to practice. The proceedings should, therefore, find a place in shelves of Libraries and scholars.
