An introduction to the microbiology of bioaerosols and their impact on the world in which we live
The microbiology of aerosols is an emerging field of research that lies at the interface of a variety of scientific and health–related disciplines. This eye–opening book synthesizes the current knowledge about microorganisms bacteria, archaea, fungi, viruses that are aloft in the atmosphere. The book is written collaboratively by an interdisciplinary and international panel of experts and carefully edited to provide a high–level overview of the emerging field of aerobiology.
Four sections within Microbiology of Aerosols present the classical and online methods used for sampling and characterizing airborne microorganisms, their emission sources and short– to long–distance dispersal, their influence on atmospheric processes and clouds, and their consequences for human health and agro–ecosystems. Practical considerations are also discussed, including sampling techniques, an overview of the quantification and characterization of bioaerosols, transport of bioaerosols, and a summary of ongoing research opportunities in the field. Comprehensive in scope, the book:
Explores this new field that is applicable to many disparate disciplines
Covers the emission of bioaerosols to their deposit, covering both quantitative and qualitative aspects
Provides insights into social and environmental effects of the presence of bioaerosols in the atmosphere
Details the impact of bioaerosols on human health, animal and plant health, and on physical and chemical atmospheric processes
Written by authors internationally recognized for their work on biological aerosols and originating from a variety of scientific fields collaborated on, Microbiology of Aerosols is an excellent resource for researchers and graduate or PhD students interested in atmospheric sciences or microbiology.

For students, DIY hobbyists, and science buffs, who can no longer get real chemistry sets, this one-of-a-kind guide explains how to set up and use a home chemistry lab, with step-by-step instructions for conducting experiments in basic chemistry – not just to make pretty colors and stinky smells, but to learn how to do real lab work:
Purify alcohol by distillation
Produce hydrogen and oxygen gas by electrolysis
Smelt metallic copper from copper ore you make yourself
Analyze the makeup of seawater, bone, and other common substances
Synthesize oil of wintergreen from aspirin and rayon fiber from paper
Perform forensics tests for fingerprints, blood, drugs, and poisons
and much more
From the 1930s through the 1970s, chemistry sets were among the most popular Christmas gifts, selling in the millions. But two decades ago, real chemistry sets began to disappear as manufacturers and retailers became concerned about liability. ,em>The Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments steps up to the plate with lessons on how to equip your home chemistry lab, master laboratory skills, and work safely in your lab. The bulk of this book consists of 17 hands-on chapters that include multiple laboratory sessions on the following topics:
Solubility and Solutions
Colligative Properties of Solutions
Introduction to Chemical Reactions & Stoichiometry
Reduction-Oxidation (Redox) Reactions
Chemical Equilibrium and Le Chatelier’s Principle
Thermochemistry and Calorimetry
Colloids and Suspensions
Synthesis of Useful Compounds
With plenty of full-color illustrations and photos, Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments offers introductory level sessions suitable for a middle school or first-year high school chemistry laboratory course, and more advanced sessions suitable for students who intend to take the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry exam. A student who completes all of the laboratories in this book will have done the equivalent of two full years of high school chemistry lab work or a first-year college general chemistry laboratory course.
This hands-on introduction to real chemistry – using real equipment, real chemicals, and real quantitative experiments – is ideal for the many thousands of young people and adults who want to experience the magic of chemistry.

A thrilling tale of encounters with nature’s masters of biochemistry
From the coasts of Indonesia to the rainforests of Peru, venomous animals are everywhere—and often lurking out of sight. Humans have feared them for centuries, long considering them the assassins and pariahs of the natural world.
Now, in Venomous, the biologist Christie Wilcox investigates and illuminates the animals of our nightmares, arguing that they hold the keys to a deeper understanding of evolution, adaptation, and immunity. She reveals just how venoms function and what they do to the human body. With Wilcox as our guide, we encounter a jellyfish with tentacles covered in stinging cells that can kill humans in minutes; a two-inch caterpillar with toxic bristles that trigger hemorrhaging; and a stunning blue-ringed octopus capable of inducing total paralysis. How do these animals go about their deadly work? How did they develop such intricate, potent toxins? Wilcox takes us around the world and down to the cellular level to find out.
Throughout her journey, Wilcox meets the intrepid scientists who risk their lives studying these lethal beasts, as well as “self-immunizers” who deliberately expose themselves to snakebites. Along the way, she puts her own life on the line, narrowly avoiding being envenomated herself. Drawing on her own research, Wilcox explains how venom scientists are untangling the mechanisms of some of our most devastating diseases, and reports on pharmacologists who are already exploiting venoms to produce lifesaving drugs. We discover that venomous creatures are in fact keystone species that play crucial roles in their ecosystems and ours—and for this alone, they ought to be protected and appreciated.
Thrilling and surprising at every turn, Venomous will change everything you thought you knew about the planet’s most dangerous animals.

A guide to the theoretical underpinnings and practical applications of chemically reacting flow
Chemically Reacting Flow: Theory, Modeling, and Simulation, Second Edition combines fundamental concepts in fluid mechanics and physical chemistry while helping students and professionals to develop the analytical and simulation skills needed to solve real–world engineering problems. The authors clearly explain the theoretical and computational building blocks enabling readers to extend the approaches described to related or entirely new applications. New to this Second Edition are substantially revised and reorganized coverage of topics treated in the first edition. New material in the book includes two important areas of active research: reactive porous–media flows and electrochemical kinetics. These topics create bridges between traditional fluid–flow simulation approaches and transport within porous–media electrochemical systems.
The first half of the book is devoted to multicomponent fluid–mechanical fundamentals. In the second half the authors provide the necessary fundamental background needed to couple reaction chemistry into complex reacting–flow models. Coverage of such topics is presented in self–contained chapters, allowing a great deal of flexibility in course curriculum design.
Features new chapters on reactive porous–media flow, electrochemistry, chemical thermodynamics, transport properties, and solving differential equations in MATLAB
Provides the theoretical underpinnings and practical applications of chemically reacting flow
Emphasizes fundamentals, allowing the analyst to understand fundamental theory underlying reacting–flow simulations
Helps readers to acquire greater facility in the derivation and solution of conservation equations in new or unusual circumstances
Reorganized to facilitate use as a class text and now including a solutions manual for academic adopters
Computer simulation of reactive systems is highly efficient and cost–effective in the development, enhancement, and optimization of chemical processes. Chemically Reacting Flow: Theory, Modeling, and Simulation, Second Edition helps prepare graduate students in mechanical or chemical engineering, as well as research professionals in those fields take utmost advantage of that powerful capability.
