Biographie de Jean-Baptiste-André Dumas
Traduit du journal anglais « Nature, » par M. Charles BAYE<br /><br />Ce qui distingue surtout le siècle où nous vivons, c’est l’étendue des domaines scientifiques explorés ; ce sont spécialement les recherches pratiquées dans les sciences dites <i>naturelles,</i> selon la signification la plus large. Partout de hardis pionniers frayent des voies nouvelles ; jamais, à beaucoup près, ils ne furent aussi nombreux. Mais, pendant que la science élargit son horizon, l’individu voit le cercle de son activité se rétrécir.<br /><br />Fruit d’une sélection réalisée au sein des fonds de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, <i>Collection XIX</i> a pour ambition de faire découvrir de...

BioH2 & BioCH4 Through Anaerobic Digestion
This book presents a Two-Stage Anaerobic Digestion (TSAD) technique for producing hydrogen and methane, following a step-by-step approach in order to guide readers through the experimental verification of the related hypothesis. In the first stage of AD, the reaction conditions are optimized to obtain the maximum amount of hydrogen, while in the second the liquid residue from the first phase is used as a substrate to produce fuel-methane. AD has traditionally been used to reduce the organic content of waste; this results in a biogas that is primarily constituted of CH4 and CO2. Over the last few decades, the conversion of organic matter into hydrogen by means of AD and se...

Biohydrogen Production: Sustainability of Current Technology and Future Perspective
Increase in green, renewable and sustainable energy demand due to higher environmental impacts (e.g. Greenhouse gases emissions, climate change, etc.) on consumption of fossil fuel resource put down an extra pressure on government, researchers and industrialists. Among several available biofuel options, biohydrogen is considered as one of the best environmentally clean fuel and a strong candidate to fulfil the future demand of sustainable energy resource. Although, biohydrogen production technology and its use as a fuel is still in infancy stage. Selection of most sustainable production pathway, increase in production upto industrial scale and cost efficiency are some iss...

Biological Classification
Modern biological classification is based on the system developed by Linnaeus, and interpreted by Darwin as representing the tree of life. But despite its widespread acceptance, the evolutionary interpretation has some problems and limitations. This comprehensive book provides a single resource for understanding all the main philosophical issues and controversies about biological classification. It surveys the history of biological classification from Aristotle to contemporary phylogenetics and shows how modern biological classification has developed and changed over time. Readers will also be able to see how biological classification is in part a consequence of human psy...
