Biochemistry of Collagens, Laminins, and Elastin: Structure, Function and Biomarkers, Third Edition provides current data on key structural proteins (collagens, laminins, and elastin), reviews on how these molecules affect pathologies, and information on how selected modifications of these proteins can result in altered signaling properties of the original extracellular matrix (ECM). Further, it discusses the novel concept that an increasing number of components of the extracellular matrix harbor cryptic signaling functions with ties to endocrine function, and how this knowledge may be used to modulate various pathologies, including fibrotic disease. This new edition has been expanded and revised to incorporate recent research advances. Several new chapters explore a range of chronic diseases in which the ECM and collagens, laminin and elastin are central players in disease modulation, including new chapters on lung, skin and intestinal disease, as well as cancers. The new edition also considers emerging analytical technologies that can detect biomarkers of ECM degradation, with discussion of protein quantification and detecting aging of collagens.

Starch Industries: Processes and Innovative Products in Food and Non-Food Uses is the third volume of the "Underground Starchy Crops of South American Origin" book series. Organized in five volumes, this series brings information on the applied level of producing and using starch from a range of plants grown in tropical and subtropical areas that have South American origin. This book presents starch extraction and its food and non-food uses, using large and small industrial processes. The methods and equipment of these technologies are analyzed in detail, so that it is easy to be understood by a diverse public, increasing the visibility of the great potential of use of starchy tubers, rhizomes and roots, and improving processing options. Specifically in processing cassava, which is the only cultivation done on a commercial scale in South America, it is possible to extract starch in industries equipped with equipment, comparable to that of China, Thailand and Vietnam. This title also explores the extraction of smaller starches, such as canna starch, sweet potato and arrowroot from South China, which does not sell starch but transforms it into food paste in small extruders. Edited by a team of experts with a solid background on starch extraction research, the books are aimed at all those involved in research and development, new technological processes, quality control and legislation in the field of starch.

Valorization of Wastes/By-Products in the Design of Functional Foods/Supplements, Volume 106 provides up-to-date information on the valorization and application of by-products/wastes from fruit, vegetable, oil, cocoa, tea, coffee, nuts, seeds, cereals, legumes, citrus and animal-based products. Moreover, safety aspects as well as bioaccessibility/bioavailability of bioactives obtained from by-products/wastes are covered. As agricultural and food wastes constitute a significant problem worldwide because of their adverse effects on the environment, economy and society, this book studies the management and valorization of food wastes and their increasing significance worldwide. As it is expected that the importance given to waste valorization will increase in the near future, contributing greatly to sustainability and circular economy, this book will help stakeholders such as governments, legislative bodies, policymakers, companies, the public, and all others place special emphasis on this topic.

The series "Fish Physiology" recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary. In total, the editors of the series have produced a total of 47 books (several volumes have two books) that contain almost 500 chapters since the inaugural volume published in 1969. The content of the "Fish Physiology" volumes has evolved over time. The initial volumes were devoted to understanding the basic mechanisms and principles of fish physiology, with a focus on a few model species and some application to natural environmental conditions. Then, as the field better understood mechanisms, the approach was broadened to not only delve deeper into system physiology (e.g., chapters in early volumes were expanded to become books), but interspecific differences in physiology were explored, permitting a more evolutionary framework. Finally, as interspecific physiological mechanisms were further resolved, it became possible to discuss physiology in light of a changing world. Thus, physiology can now inform on conservation, sustainability and management, as exemplified with the most recent volumes. This anniversary issue celebrates the series by highlighting some of the very important early work in the field that was published in the Series. In particular, we wished to (re)introduce new researchers to this research that has stood the test of time and that shaped the field. Each re-published chapter is preceded by a short review written by experts in the field to provide an overview/introduction of each selected chapter, discuss what is particularly noteworthy or important in the particular chapter, and discuss why in their opinion this chapter has become a classic in its own right and how it has inspired the field of fish physiology today?

Revolution in the Seas: Ending Overfishing and Building Pesco-ecology, Sustainable Agro-Ecology of Fishing provides an in-depth analysis of the dynamics between humans and disrupting marine ecosystems by extracting its wild animals. It highlights practical changes that can be implemented to prevent overfishing and create a new way of fishing, the pescoecology that benefits marine life, coastal communities, and human consumers alike.Written by a leader in fisheries science and conservation, this book begins by diagnosing the issue of overexploitation, showing the dynamics and consequences on living marine resources and ecosystems. It then goes on to demonstrate how recent scientific discoveries, including tropic network functionality, are changing humans’ approach to fishing sustainably. The final sections are devoted to ecological, economic, and social solutions.Revolution in the Seas is a vital resource for fisheries scientists, managers, academics and students in marine biology or fisheries studies. All stakeholders and citizens involved in building a sustainable relationship between humans and the sea will also benefit from this book’s revolutionary content.
