Osteosarcopenia Bone Muscle and Fat Interactions Book Review:

This edited work presents the most current evidence on osteosarcopenia from bench to bedside, which is expected to facilitate the understanding of this syndrome and to develop preventive and therapeutic strategies. With our aging population, chronic diseases such as osteoporosis and sarcopenia are becoming highly prevalent. Fortunately, our understanding of the bone and muscle interactions has increased in recent years. This has allowed to the coining of the term osteosarcopenia to describe a syndrome in which these two diseases overlap. This overlap between osteoporosis and sarcopenia has major negative effects not only on our older adults but also on health systems worldwide. Readers will find a highly translational approach that starts with a summary of recent discoveries on stem cells biology, muscle and bone interactions – including the role of local bone and muscle fat – followed by comprehensive reviews on myokines (i.e. myostatin), osteokines (i.e. osteocalcin) and adipokines (i.e. interleukins) as major players and determinants of bone and muscle loss with aging. In addition, the role of sex steroids (i.e. estrogens, androgens), and calciotropic hormones (i.e. parathyroid hormone, vitamin D) in the pathogenesis of this syndrome is also reviewed. Moreover, using practical diagnostic and therapeutic tips, this book summarizes the clinical characteristics of osteosarcopenic patients thus facilitating the diagnosis and treatment of this syndrome in clinical practice. Finally, the book presents the case for the Falls and Fractures Clinic as the optimal model of care for this syndrome, aimed to avoid fragmentation and optimize osteosarcopenia care, and simultaneously prevent falls and fractures in older persons. This book offers relevant information on the mechanisms of osteosarcopenia, and a practical guide on how to identify and treat this geriatric syndrome and its adverse outcomes, which are dramatically affecting our aging population. The work is written by leaders in the field and is especially suited not only to any researcher in the musculoskeletal arena but also to medical specialists and allied health professionals involved in the care of older persons.

Coastal Ecosystems of the Tropics Adaptive Management Book Review:

The coastal areas of the tropics are rich in biodiversity, natural resources and place of intensive developmental activities as it provides livelihood to millions of people. At the same time evidences suggest that several unique coastal ecosystems viz., mangroves, wetlands, salt marshes, corals, estuaries, sand dunes and agro-ecosystem are vulnerable to natural disasters and events associated with global climate change. In recent times degradation of land, water and genetic erosion besides threat to native flora and fauna have been increasing due to unsustainable developmental activities. Therefore, a paradigm shift in deriving livelihood through conventional methods, developmental strategies, conservation practices are required for balanced and sustainable growth of the coastal areas. This publication strives to cover the status of different natural resources of the coastal region, various aspects of degradation process, production need and restorative methods besides new technological options and its socio-economic implications with case examples. Special focus is given to bring out the scope and potential of mangrove based farming, integrated and organic farming and its value addition besides the role of coastal vegetations as bioshield in protecting these regions from sea erosion, cyclones and tsunami. As the tropical coastal areas are vulnerable to climate change events, this book also covers the recent weather pattern, impacts of climate change and climate resilient technologies besides intuitional linkages and policy framework aimed at balancing development and environmental concerns.

Complexus Mundi Book Review:

The dynamics of complex systems can clarify the creation of structures in Nature. This creation is driven by the collective interaction of constitutive elements of the system. Such interactions are frequently nonlinear and are directly responsible for the lack of prediction in the evolution process. The self-organization accompanying these processes occurs all around us and is constantly being rediscovered, under the guise of a new jargon, in apparently unrelated disciplines. This volume offers unique perspectives on aspects of fractals and complexity and, through the examination of complementary techniques, provides a unifying thread in this multidisciplinary endeavor. Do nonlinear interactions play a role in the complexity management of socio-econo-political systems? Is it possible to extract the global properties of genetic regulatory networks without knowing the details of individual genes? What can one learn by transplanting the self-organization effects known in laser processes to the study of emotions? What can the change in the level of complexity tell us about the physiological state of the organism? The reader will enjoy finding the answers to these questions and many more in this book. Contents: Structure of Genetic Regulatory Networks: Evidence for Scale Free Networks (L S Liebovitch); Modelling Fractal Dynamics (B West); Complexity in Nature and Society: Complexity Management in the Age of Globalization (K Mainzer); Analysis of Geographical Distribution Patterns in Plants Using Fractals (A Bari); A Cornucopia of Connections: Finding Four Familiar Fractals in the Tower of Hanoi (D R Camp); Fractal Sets Generated by Two-Dimensional Non-Invertible Maps (Ch Mira); Fractals, Morphological Spectrum and Complexity of Interfacial Patterns in Non-equilibrium Solidification (P K Galenko); Modelling Pattern Formation Upon Laser-Induced Etching (M Haase); Synergetics as an Approach to Complexity in the Humanities (H Haken); Fractal Analysis of the Images Using Wavelet Transformation (P Jerabkova); Monitoring the Depth of Anaesthesia Using Fractal Complexity Method (W Klonowski); Description of Complex Systems in Terms of Self-Organization Processes of Prime Integer Relations (V Korotkikh); Genome as a Fractal 2D Walk (A Loskutov); Generalization of the DLA-Process with Different Inmiscible Components by Time-Scale Roughening (A Loskutov); Fractional Relaxation of Distributed Order (F Mainardi); Hierarchy of Cellular Automata in Relation to Control of Chaos or Anticontrol (M Markus); A Generative Construction and Visualization of 3D Fractal Measures (T Martyn); Markov Memory in Multifractal Natural Processes (F Pallikari); Fractals, Complexity and Chaos in Supply Chain Networks (M A Pearson); Complexity, Fractals, Nature and Industrial Design: Some Connections (N Sala); Simulation of Geochemical Banding in Acidization-Precipitation Experiments In Situ (R F Sultan); Clustering Phenomena in the Time Distribution of Lightning (L Telesca); Dynamical Decomposition of Multifractal Time Series as Fractal Evolution and Long-Term Cycles: Applications to Foreign Currency Exchange Market (A Turiel); The Complex Couplings and Gompertzian Dynamics (P W Waliszewski); The Competition Rule of the High Income Model and the Power-Law Exponents (K Y Yamamoto); The Distance Radio Fractal Image (X-Z Zhang).

Colossal Magnetoresistance Charge Ordering and Related Properties of Manganese Oxides Book Review:

Metal oxides constitute one of the most amazing classes of materials with a wide range of properties. They exhibit a variety of phenomena, such as ferroelectricity, ferromagnetism and superconductivity. A new aspect of metal oxides — colossal magnetoresistance exhibited by certain manganese oxides, in particular rare earth manganates of perovskite structure — has received much attention in the last four years. Some of these oxides show 100% magnetoresistance and have much potential for technological applications. Previously this phenomenon was found only in layered and granular metallic materials. Studies of colossal magnetoresistance have led to the discovery of many other new phenomena and properties such as charge ordering and orbital ordering. In view of the importance of colossal magnetoresistance, charge ordering and related phenomena exhibited by oxides to the physics and chemistry of solid materials, it is necessary and timely to have a book dealing with these topics. This book begins with a review of the subject followed by contributions from a number of experts which cover the present status of the subject.

Osteoporosis in Older Persons Book Review:

This new edition includes the most up-to-date information about the pathophysiology and new therapeutic alternatives for osteoporosis of advanced age. It is written by investigators (clinicians and basic scientists) in the field of aging bone research. It was just recently that a new syndrome, osteoporosis of advanced age, was recognized as a new entity with its own pathophysiology and potential treatments. Unfortunately, and despite the fact that hip fractures are mostly a consequence of this process, and apart from the first edition of this book, there are few publications about this subject. The first edition of this book demonstrated that there is a need to understand the particular features of osteoporosis in older persons, which is the main aim of this book. The institutions where the authors are affiliated are highly recognized as the main centers in aging bone research. As an innovation, the second edition includes some aspects of muscle and bone interaction focusing of the impact of age-related muscle loss (sarcopenia) on the pathogenesis of falls and fractures in older persons. As in the previous edition, this book is expected to be the reference guide for geriatricians, gerontologists, and bone biologists as well as medical trainees in order to understand the mechanisms of senile osteoporosis with a practical approach to the treatment of its consequences.
