Sinopsis: Tea is a unique crop and, incidentally, a very interesting and attractive one. The tea bush, its cultivation and harvesting do not fit into any typical cropping pattern. Moreover, its processing and marketing are specific to tea. Thus the Tea Industry stands apart and constitutes a self contained entity. This is reflected in the title given to this book, Tea: Cultivation to consumption, and its treatment of the subject. The book is logically planned - starting with the plant itself and finishing with the traditional'cuppa'. Every aspect of tea production is covered, inevitably some in greater detail than others. However, it gives an authentic and comprehensive picture of the tea industry. The text deals in detail with cultural practices and research, where desirable, on a regional basis. The technology of tea cultivation and processing has been developed within the industry, aided by applied research which was largely financed by the tea companies themselves. This contributed to a technically competent industry but tended to bypass the more academic and fundamental investigations which might bring future rewards. The sponsorship of research has now widened and the range and depth of tea research has increased accordingly. The editors and authors of this book have played their part in these recent developments which are well reported in the book.
Sinopsis: This follow-up to the book "Coffee" (also edited by Drs Willson and Clifford) looks at the tea crop from a multi-discplinary standpoint. As well as investigation the crop, its history, botany, cultivation and production, it also addresses the importance and production of the major tea varieties used as beverages, and looks at the clinical and physiological effects of tea consumption. The economics of, and world trade in, tea are also highlighted using many tables and figures which demonstrate the distribution in supply and demand of this most important crop. Each chapter has been written by an international expert and the whole has been drawn together to provide a book which should be of interest to a wide range of people concerned with all aspects of this crop, including plant scientists, agronomists and food scientists.

Descripción Springer Nov 1991, 1991. Buch. Estado de conservación: Neu. 235x155x53 mm. This item is printed on demand - Print on Demand Titel. - The development, production, stockpiling and use in war of biological and toxin weapons (BTW) are prohibited by international law. However, conversion of BTW facilities has not been dealt with in the existing, open literature on conversion. This is partly due to the fact that BTW programmes to a large degree involve dual-use activities and it is thus difficult to differentiate them form defensive and civilian activities involving pathogenic biological agent and toxins. It is thus also difficult to assess whether or not a BTW facility has actually been converted. In Conversion of Former BTW Facilities, experts from five countries discuss general aspects of conversion and describe the conversion of former facilities in Germany, the UK, USA, Russia, and Kazachstan. Audience: Experts in disarmament, BTW problems, biotechnology, health care and related areas. 796 pp. Englisch. Nº de ref. de la librería 9780412338502
