Sustainable and Circular Management of Resources and Waste Towards a Green Deal highlights the importance of resource recovery, phosphorus management, climate action, clean energy transition, and a circular economy. The world is facing significant challenges, including climate disruption, environmental changes, pollution, and population explosion. Sustainable management of finite natural resources within the carrying capacity of the bio-geo-hydrosphere is the crux of transforming the global economy for a sustainable future. Moreover, keeping raw materials in circulation as long as possible and minimizing the amount of waste generated has grown in significance as a part of transitioning to a circular economy (CE) model.

Comparative Mammalian Immunology: The Evolution and Diversity of the Immune Systems of Mammals provides a review on the current knowledge of mammalian immune systems from a comparative viewpoint. This reference encompasses recent work on the immune systems of marine mammals, bats and marsupials in addition to other lesser-known species, with the immune systems of humans and laboratory mice as components of chapters on primates and rodents respectively. The book also makes use of the most recent studies on the genomic sequences of the mammals to identify both common and unique features of each mammal's immune system. The book elucidates the complex, but coordinated and controlled series of interactions involving cells and molecules that has evolved to protect the host against disease. Mammals consist of a highly diverse group of animals in which the immune system has been subjected to a variety of selective pressures. This is reflected in differences in the organization and function of their immune systems, and is especially seen in those gene families characterized by complexity and polymorphism.

Artificial Intelligence in Capsule Endoscopy: A Gamechanger for a Groundbreaking Technique highlights the importance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) application in capsule endoscopy. AI will have a key role in the mid/long-term for gastrointestinal endoscopy and capsule endoscopy. This field is a prime area for the use of AI tools with over 50,000 images per endoscopy capsule video, making video analysis a time and resource consuming task and prone to error. With the application of AI image analysis tools (primarily Convolutional Neural Networks) we can decrease capsule endoscopy video reading time and resources and greatly benefit diagnostic accuracy and patient outcomes. In 15 chapters, this important reference provides a global and comprehensive perspective from the background information of AI, machine learning, deep learning and their implications in GI endoscopy. It showcases AI practical use in lesion detection and in relevant clinical indications (like obscure gastrointestinal bleeding and inflammatory bowel disease), and points to future applications of AI within the field.

Laboratory Animal Anaesthesia and Analgesia, Fifth Edition provides a basic guide to anesthesia for a very diverse audience involved in animal testing. This has been the go-to resource for current, clear and evidence-based information for over 30 years. The book is divided into four parts that deal with preparation for anesthesia, including definitions, equipment, preparations, anesthetic and analgesic agents, the management and monitoring of anesthesia, including pre-procedural preparations, monitoring and problems and emergencies through the procedure, advanced and specialized techniques, and analgesia and post-operative care, including recovery and the prevention and management of post-operative pain. Final sections cover anesthesia in common laboratory species, specifically: rodents, rabbits, cats, dogs, ferrets, pigs, sheep and goats, primates, reptiles, amphibians and new specific chapters on birds, fish and cephalopods. This edition keeps up with the tradition of bringing a balanced dose of practical advice, foundational content, and current, updated references, drugs and procedures to veterinarians, technicians, researchers and ethics committee personnel.
