Principles of Modern Agriculture
This new volume explores a wide variety of topics in modern agriculture. From the use of big data and new technologies for monitoring water levels and weather, and the use of biotechnology in seed production and new non-chemical ways to control pests and weeds, this volume provides students and researchers with new and interesting ways to look at agricultural production in modern society. Will our farmers be able to produce enough food to support the growing population? What is the future of our water supply and our soil health How will climate change affect agricultural production? How do sustainable practices affect prices and growth rates?
In over 120 articles,  Principles of Modern Agriculture  addresses numerous topics such as:
  • Soil Science
  • Climate Change
  • Pesticides
  • Organic Farming
  • Animal Husbandry
  • Dairy Farming
  • Genetically Modified Organisms
  • Organic Labeling Standards
  • Import/Export of Agricultural Products

This volume provides new ways to think about and study issues, policies and practices in today’s agricultural production. This will be a helpful addition to science and agricultural programs at the high school, community college and university levels.
Principles of Robotics & Artificial Intelligence
Pub Date: November 2018
ISBN: 978-1-68217-942-0
List Price: $165
The study of artificial intelligence and robotics offer the enormous potential of continuing the wide-reaching debate about how men and machines live together, now and in the future. The notion that a machine can respond to its environment, make decisions, and learn, has been the stuff of science fiction for hundreds of years.

This work examines the key principles and concepts behind the engineering and technological advances that have allowed IBM’s Deep Blue to compete against professional chess players and game show contestants, and a device that by itself will vacuum your house. Artificial intelligence (AI) infers that a machine can assess its surroundings and take steps toward a goal. Self-driving cars rely on AI not only to map a route and obey established traffic law, but also to respond to the behaviors of cars around them. Robots rely on computers, sensory feedback systems, and information processing in order to perform in the place of humans.
Topics Include:
  • Augmented Reality
  • Behavior Informatics
  • Constraint Programming
  • Deep Blue
  • Evolutionary Algorithm
  • Fuzzy Logic
  • Game Theory
  • Incremental Learning
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Machine Learning
  • Neural Networks
  • Pattern Recognition
  • Robots
  • Self Management
  • Smart Appliances
  • Virtual Reality
Designed for high school students and undergraduates, this new resource introduces researchers to the fundamentals of robotics and artificial intelligence using easy-to-understand language for a solid background and a deeper understanding and appreciation of this important and evolving subject.
Principles of Ecology
Ecology considers how organisms of the same species interact with each other, how organisms of different species in the same space interact, and how multiple communities interact to make up an ecosystem, information crucial in understanding how biodiversity affects ecological function.

In over 120 articles,  Principles of Ecology  addresses topics including:
  • Morphology
  • Co-Evolution
  • Human Ecology
  • Traits
  • Resilience
  • Biomes
  • Social Ecology
  • Biosphere

Ecology and evolutionary biology are considered the "sister disciplines" of the life sciences because of their focus on natural selection, adaptation, populations, and inheritance, all of which inform the way in which an "evolutionary tree" is drawn, and explains why the taxonomy developed by Linnaeus is still evolving today.
