Les sols et la vie souterraine

Soils and underground life

Major agro-ecological challenges


J. Briat, D. Job

Edition 2017

Soil composition, functioning and health are influenced by the physical and chemical properties of soils, interactions between plants, soil-dwelling micro-organisms and fauna. This work presents recent advances in this knowledge to support and encourage the development of agro-ecological practices.

À la découverte des nanostructures naturelles


S. Berthier, J. Livage

Edition 2016

Dans la Nature, tout apparaît évident. Le papillon a des ailes et il vole ; le poisson des nageoires et il nage... Sous cette apparente simplicité se cachent des architectures extraordinairement complexes, à une échelle de taille immédiatement supérieure à celle de la molécule. Les nanostructures remplissent de nombreuses fonctions, et leur sophistication n'a pas fini de nous émerveiller. Cet ouvrage présente les exemples les plus marquants de structures naturelles chez les animaux et chez les plantes.

La métagénomique

Metagenomics

Developments and Future Applications


M. Zagorec, M. Champomier-Vergès

Edition 2015

Metagenomics has followed the genomics era and invaded the domain of biology. Studying the genetic content of a sample from a complex environment (intestine, ocean, soils, air, etc.) found in Nature (as opposed to samples cultivated in a laboratory), it produces vast quantities of data very quickly that require considerable computer processing to draw out the information. The aim of this work is to enlighten non-specialist scientific professionals on the possibilities offered by this tool to explore the various domains of agriculture, environment, food-processing and health by analysing living organisms.

Marine Bacteria and Biotechnologies

Marine Bacteria and Biotechnologies


J. Guézennec

Edition 2014

The sea not only nourishes us, it can also look after, cure and participate in our well-being. An invisible component exists in this marine biodiversity - the microbial component. Here perhaps will be found new medicines (pain relief, cancer relief, antibiotics), new therapeutic approaches, new active ingredients in cosmetology and new molecules potentially resolving current problems in society. This book addresses a few of the opportunities offered by these micro-organisms and the hopes hinging on these so-called "blue biotechnologies".

Principles of Redox Chemistry in Microbial Ecology

Principles of Redox Chemistry in Microbial Ecology


A. Pidello

Edition 2014

Redox (or oxidation-reduction) reactions are chemical reactions during which electrons are transferred. This work explains the basic concepts of redox chemistry and the significance thereof in microbial ecology. This field of biology has experienced tremendous growth in the last few years. Its basic or applied developments cover nearly all topics in the study of life: the sustainability of biosystems, animal and human health, the contamination of the biosphere subject to human activities.

Food Structure and Nutritional Effects

Food Structure and Nutritional Effects


A. Fardet, I. Souchon, D. Dupont

Edition 2013

This book sets out a state of the art on the influence of physical and physical-chemical characteristics of the food matrix on its digestive and metabolic future. The authors analyse their effects on the health of nutrients by considering macro-nutrients, micro-nutrients and fibres. It is no longer question of envisaging nutrition from a qualitative, not just quantitative perspective involving notions of nutrients interacting in the matrix, enzyme bioaccessibility and digestive bioavailability.
