Manipulative Tenants: Bacteria Associated with Arthropods

Manipulative Tenants: Bacteria Associated with Arthropods introduces the fascinating world of bacteria-arthropod associations with an emphasis on the bacterial partner. Written by an interdisciplinary team of international contributors, this book provides an overview of the diversity of bacterial symbionts identified to date as frequent partners of terrestrial arthropods. It discusses primary (obligatory) symbionts as well as the most abundant secondary (facultative) symbionts currently known. 

Summarizing the most up-to-date information available on each symbiont, the book presents a synopsis of the field from the bacterial angle. Chapters examine Proteobacteria, including Sodalis and Wigglesworthia in tsetse flies and Stammerulaand other symbiotic bacteria in fruit flies, as well as Bacteroidetes such as Blattabacterium and Cardinium. The book also identifies questions that emerge from the study of these systems. This comprehensive reference introduces the topic of bacteria-arthropod associations to researchers who are not familiar with it, enlarges the scope of knowledge of those who are, and provides a textbook for students in microbiology and other branches of biology.

Regulating Restorative Justice- A comparative Study of Legislative Provision in European Countires

  • Author(s): David Miers and Ivo Aertsen
  • ISBN/ISSN: 978-3-86676-232-9

The purpose of this new study, which originates from COST Action A 21, is to take forward the existing materials contained in Mapping Restorative Justice and in other European overviews. This new book provides a deeper and more reflective account of the genesis and current significance of restorative justice provisions within 14 selected European countries. Each country contribution therefore addresses in great detail the background and contents of its legislation, both at primary and subordinate level. The authors in this book, not only evaluate their legal structures against applicable international standards, but they also analyse the social and political function of restorative justice legislation and they reflect on how different types of regulation further shape and determine restorative justice principles and practices.

Audience Evolution and the Future of Audience Research

  • Author(s): B. Mierzejewska, D. Shaver, P. Napoli
  • Publisher(s): http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/14241277.2012.675753

This article considers how changes in audience behaviors and in audience information systems are affecting the future of academic audience research. This article first illustrates how changes in the media environment are undermining traditional approaches to audience research while also giving rise to alternative analytical approaches. This article then outlines the contours of a next-generation audience research agenda that reflects these ongoing conceptual and methodological developments. Reflecting these developments, this article next argues for a definition of ratings analysis that focuses not on a particular aspect of audience behavior (i.e., exposure), but on whatever forms of currency are employed in the audience marketplace. From this standpoint, the new media environment provides new forms of “ratings” that exist alongside—and integrate with—the old, and that can renew and revitalize the field of ratings analysis.

Inheritance Practices, Marriage Strategies and Household Formation in European Rural Societies

Conventional wisdom holds that, over a long period of history, many women and men in the countryside were prevented from marrying because they lacked access to land. This volume offers an up-to-date discussion of the interaction between inheritance practices, marriage and household formation both for those who inherited and those who did not. It asks why and to what extent inheritance patterns and household structures differed between countries and regions in Europe right up to the present day.

Dealing with both  impartible and partible inheritance,  it examines how retirement practices and choices between ante-mortem or post-mortem property transfers gave rise to a wide range of specific strategies. The chapters cover rural Europe from the seventeenth to the twentieth century, ranging from semi-subsistence and seignorial societies to highly market-oriented economies. They offer case studies drawn from the Iberian Peninsula to Scandinavia and from the British Isles to Russia.

COST Series on Health and Diversity. Inequalities in Health Care for Migrants and Ethnic Minorities - Vol. 2

  • Pages: 330
  • Author(s): Edited by D. Ingleby, A. Chiarenza, W. Devillé and I. Kotsioni
  • Publisher(s): Garant
  • ISBN/ISSN: 978-90-441-2932-8
  • EUR: 38

Migrants and ethnic minorities form a growing part of the population of Europe. They often have higher than average exposure to health risks, while facing barriers to accessing appropriate health care. International bodies have called for policy measures to tackle these inequities.

This second volume is concerned with the changes that are needed to improve the matching of health services to the needs of these groups. Its chapters analyse work on ‘cultural competence’ in the USA and Europe, as well as the use of interpreters and cultural mediators to overcome linguistic and cultural barriers. Other topics covered include user involvement, services for unaccompanied minors and Roma communities, the relation between NGO’s and mainstream services and the incorporation of non-Western approaches in Western health care. The final section of the book examines the health aspects of irregular migration in the Mediterranean region, viewed in the context of the complex political, legal and human rights issues that this phenomenon raises.

Guanine

2012 | Action Number: MP0802

Guanine Quartets. Structure and Applications

Guanosine and its derivatives have a high potential for self-recognition and self-assembly, as well as the recognition ability for other biologically important molecules. This book explores in detail these properties with the goal of increasing knowledge of the basic principles of guanosine-assembly, synthesis of new optimised materials and exploration of their electronic and optical properties.
