People, Pathogens, and Our Planet : Volume One - Towards a One Health Approach for Controlling Zoonotic Diseases
World Bank [2010-01-01]
Whether living in urban or rural environments, humans tend to perceive the world around them as being shaped by culture and industry more than by natural history. Humans, however, are part of a biological continuum that covers all living species. Charles Darwin's 200th birthday in 2009 could serve to remind us of this. All animals, including humans but also plants, fungi, and bacteria, ...

The resistance of harmful organisms to chemical plant protection products is one of the most urgent problems of modern agriculture. Fully relying on such means and not observing anti-strain strategies, farming contributes to the adaptation of harmful organisms, resulting in their ability to survive and produce progeny even after treatment with doses of plant protection products, which are gene ...

Genetically modified potato plants in nutrition and prevention of diseases in humans and animals: a review
Pribylova, R. et al. [may2006]
Genetically modified organisms (GMO) become a real constituent of our lives as they are commonly introduced into the food chain of people and animals in some states. Among higher organisms, plants are used above all for genetic modifications; potatoes are a suitable model plants for this purpose. Nowadays, a number of various genetic modifications of potato plants are available, particularly t ...

Laboratories provide essential services to the health sector on the monitoring and treatment of disease. Routine implementation of new diagnostic techniques may be costly; therefore, understanding their clinical utility, impact, and cost-effectiveness are necessary to guide decisions as to whether and how such techniques should be implemented. In this study, the authors design a concept ...

[Breeding value of the forms of peas with various types of stems, leaves and inflorescences in the Northern Steppe Zone of Ukraine]
Shokalo, N.S. [may2001]
One hundred and thirty-five variety samples of peas belonging to various morphological types and possessing economically valuable characteristics are studied. Variety samples and hybridization combinations being used to develop high-yielding breeding lines resistant to drought, frost, pests and diseases are distinguished. An evaluation of breeding lines was conducted in the hybridizing and bre ...

Mardi, Mohsen et al. 
Fusarium head blight (FHB) caused by Fusarium spp. is one of the most important diseases of wheat (Triticum aestivum L. ) in Iran. FHB causes severe yield reduction, decreases grain quality and induces toxicological problems in food or feed. Although genetic variation for FHB resistance in wheat is well documented, resistance breeding for FHB is difficult. The application of DNA markers could ...
