• Biopolitik - in der Debatte by Marianne Pieper, Thomas Atzert, Serhat Karakayali, Vassilis

    By Marianne Pieper, Thomas Atzert, Serhat Karakayali, Vassilis Tsianos

    Im Anschluss an Michel Foucault formierte sich eine Debatte um den Begriff der Biopolitik, die diesen als Einsatz einer kritischen "Analytik der Gegenwart" konzipiert, um Spiele der Macht zu untersuchen. Der vorliegende Band bietet das keineswegs homogene Bild der gegenwärtigen Diskussion, die sich mit Foucault und über diesen hinausweisend einer produktiv gewendete ? Biopolitik von unten? verpflichtet sieht. Biopolitische Produktion bezeichnet vor diesem Hintergrund das Terrain der Kämpfe um Subjektivität, um die Arten und Weisen der Verbindung zwischen Lebensführung, Konsum, Sexualität, politischer Repräsentation und Produktionsweise. Diese Forschungsprogrammatik zielt darauf, das Produktive, cellular und Überschüssige im Herzen der Biopolitik und im Vakuum von Kontrolle, Regulierung und (Selbst-)Regierung auszuloten.

  • Bemisia: Bionomics and Management of a Global Pest by Raymond J. Gill, Judith K. Brown (auth.), Philip A. Stansly,

    By Raymond J. Gill, Judith K. Brown (auth.), Philip A. Stansly, Steven E. Naranjo (eds.)

    Bemisia tabaci (Gennedius) has uncommon itself from the greater than one thousand whitefly species on this planet through it adaptability, patience and strength to break quite a lot of agricultural and horticultural vegetation in all six of the world’s inhabited continents. B. tabaci inflicts plant harm via direct feeding, inducement of plant problems, vectoring of plant viruses and excretion of honeydew. This publication collates a number of points of the pest starting from uncomplicated to utilized technological know-how and molecular to panorama degrees of research. specialists in a number of disciplines supply huge, yet designated summaries and dialogue of taxonomy, genetics, anatomy, morphology, body structure, habit, ecology, symbiotic relationships, virus vector institutions and diverse strategies for built-in administration of this pest insect. The e-book is concentrated totally on development over the past 10-15 years and is directed at employees within the box in addition to the proficient specialist who won't inevitably specialise in whitefly study. The booklet is exclusive in supplying huge insurance in rather few chapters by way of famous specialists that spotlight the state of the art in our figuring out of this interesting yet frustrating cosmopolitan pest.

  • Plant Biodiversity in Urbanized Areas by Sonja Knapp

    By Sonja Knapp

    Urbanization is without doubt one of the major drivers of world switch. It usually occurs in components with excessive biodiversity, threatening species around the globe. to guard biodiversity not just outdoor but in addition correct inside city components, wisdom concerning the results of city land use on species assemblages is vital. Sonja Knapp compares a number of features of plant biodiversity among city and rural components in Germany. utilizing vast databases and smooth statistical tools, she is going past species richness: city components are wealthy in species yet plant species in city parts are nearer relating to one another than plant species in rural parts, respectively. The city setting, characterised by means of excessive temperatures and widespread disturbances, alterations the useful composition of the plants. It promotes e.g. short-lived species with leaves tailored to drought yet threatens insect-pollinated or wind-dispersed species. the writer claims that the safety of biodiversity usually are not purely specialise in species richness but in addition on sensible and phylogenetic range, additionally correct inside city parts, to maintain a plant life with a excessive capability for model to altering worldwide stipulations.

  • Biophysics of the Pancreatic β-Cell by Erwin Neher, Wolf Almers (auth.), Illani Atwater, Eduardo

    By Erwin Neher, Wolf Almers (auth.), Illani Atwater, Eduardo Rojas, Bernat Soria (eds.)

    Pancreatic a-cell biophysics has gone through a veritable informa­ tion explosion some time past years. unmarried channel and macroscopic currents became simply obtainable following the advent of the patch clamp process. as well as this new method, extra improvement of ideas for optical measurements, ion-sensitive microelectrodes, permeabilized cells and mathematical modelling have lately further to the now classical concepts of membrane power recording and tracer flux size. The foreign Workshop on Biophysics of the Pancreatic a-Cell held in Alicante (Spain) on Sep­ tember 30 - October 1, 1985, has now given us the chance to proportion stories with those new thoughts utilized to the a-cell. extra­ extra this used to be the 1st social gathering for many of the teams doing patch­ clamp experiences of the a-cell to choose acceptable nomenclature and to discuss the several features of the a-cell ionic channels. To make this knowledge to be had to the bigger medical neighborhood a checklist of the assembly has been assembled during this ebook. it's a number of examine papers by way of top scientists on the meet­ ing engaged on biophysical, biochemical and physiological features. of secretion. We grouped their contributions in seven sections, includ­ ing new experimental methods, K-channels, Ca-channels, position of ionic channels, intracellular ionized calcium, neural law and mechanisms of insulin unlock. every one part provides an account of the kingdom of the matter on the time of the assembly, and the topics are analyzed from different views of many of the contributors.
