Biotechnology is a technique that uses living organisms to create and amend a product, to develop plants and animals or to develop micro-organisms for explicit uses. Biotechnological means of genetic improvement is a modern and faster approach. Genome manipulations (Chromosomal Engineering) and gene transfer (Genetic Engineering) have been experimentally studied throughout past in many countries. To date genetic progress in livestock breeding programs has relied whichever on breed exchange or leading the conventional quantitative genetic approach of testing and selection.Under these circumstances the need to develop new technologies became imperative unlike in agriculture and veterinary farming exploitation of genetic potentials and utilization of genetically improved cultured varieties of fish is not a common practice in aquaculture all most all species of fish are genetically improved to the traditional selective reading and hybridization methods. Aquaculture is multidisciplinary activity. This book overviews Fishes and related biotechnology techniques. Reading this book will be beneficial for students of fisheries, researchers in this field and entrepreneurs. 471pp. N.B. Edges and corners bumped. Head and tail of spine bumped.

Kelly,Peter E. And Larson,Douglas W.
The most ancient and least disturbed forest ecosystem in eastern North America clings to the vertical cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment. Prior to 1988 it had escaped detection even though the entire forest was in plain view and was being visited by thousands upon thousands of people every year. The reason no one had discovered the forest was that the trees were relatively small and lived on the vertical cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment. "The Last Stand" reveals the complete account of the discovery of this ancient forest, of the miraculous properties of the trees forming this forest (eastern white cedar), and of what is was like for researchers to live, work and study within this forest. The unique story is told with text, with stunning colour photographs and through vivid first-hand accounts. This book will stand the test of time as a testament to science, imagination and discovery. 162pp.
