À cinq ans, la jeune renarde Yeowoo part vivre à la campagne chez son grand-père et sa tante. Rejetée par les siennes, une poule jardinière, Paulette, devient sa nouvelle voisine. Cette dernière n'a jamais pu pondre d'oeufs et considère la petite renarde solitaire comme son propre enfant. Avec son aide, Yeowoo mûrit, grandit et commence à apprécier la vie à la campagne, la vie tout simplement.
This book highlights the development of a functional nucleic acid based biosensor detection method in the context of food safety. Although there have been major advances in food processing technology in both developed and developing countries, food safety assurance systems are generally becoming more stringent, in response to growing (both real and perceived) food safety problems. These problems are due in part to foodborne microorganisms, heavy metals, and small chemical molecules (biological toxins, pesticide residues, and veterinary drug residues), etc. In addition, the nucleic acid biomarkers (DNA methylation, microRNA, and circRNA) induced by these risk factors are also closely related to food safety. Accordingly, this book offers a brief guide to targets and strategies in functional nucleic acid based biosensors for food safety detection. Divided into several chapters that focus on various respective targets, it will be a valuable resource for students and researchers in the fields of biosensor detection, food science etc.
The subject of this book is discussing the income inequality of Chinese residents, its change and the factors that impact it. In this book all kinds of quantitative methods, including decomposing Gini Coefficients method, Fei-Ranis method, two-sectors model and other econometric models. Some special features are that in this book, a two-sectors model was set up to analyze the impact of population migration from urban areas to rural areas on income inequality of total residents, and the inverted U hypothesis was tested by time-series regression model. The inverted U hypothesis is supported by the change of income inequality of Chinese total residents which is different from the conclusion of present reaches. In additional, the impact of rent-seeking income on inequality was discussed, an economic mode was founded to explain the causes of rent-seeking activities in China's present stage.
Transcriptional Regulation of Flesh Fruit Development and Ripening Understand the critical factors in fruit development with this up-to-date guide Fruit is an essential part of the human diet, and fruit production has never been more central to global human nutrition and public health. Fruit ripening is a vital stage in the emergence of nutrient-rich food, and modifications to the fruit development process can impact flavor, texture, nutritional value, and more. The process of ripening is controlled by nearly sixty transcription factors (TFs), a proper understanding of which is therefore crucial to regulating fruit quality and competing in the global food marketplace. Transcriptional Regulation of Flesh Fruit Development and Ripening is a comprehensive introduction to recent developments in the study of fruit ripening, focusing especially on these transcription factors. It details the major families of transcription factors and their properties, as well as providing methods for screening and identifying transcription factors to aid in genetic modification of fruit. The result is a thorough, accessible reference to a critical set of factors in fruit development. Transcriptional Regulation of Flesh Fruit Development and Ripening readers will also find: Detailed regulation of transcription factor families including MADS-box, NAC, ethylene response factor, and more Discussion of both climacteric and non-climacteric fruits throughout Analysis of how multiple TFs interact to influence fruit ripening Transcriptional Regulation of Flesh Fruit Development and Ripening is a must-have volume for food scientists, horticultural researchers, agriculturalists, and graduate students working in these or related fields.
