CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Natural disasters, extreme events and vector-borne diseases: impact on urban systems.

Various host-vector-pathogen systems will be affected in different ways by particular aspects of climate. The likelihood of a particular class of climatic event causing or leading to an increase (or decrease) in vector-borne disease outbreaks will depend heavily on the ecology of the vectors (such...

Cover for Barley contains a large <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">CBF</i> gene family associated with quantitative cold-tolerance traits.

In a study conducted to determine the relationship between CBF genes and low-temperature (LT) tolerance of barley (Hordeum vulgare), results showed that: (1) barley has a large and complex CBF family; (2) the barley CBF family is representative in both size and complexity of CBF families of other...
