Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America: A Field-to-kitchen Guide

Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America: A Field-to-kitchen Guide Lowest new price: $22.81
Lowest used price: $17.48
List price: $37.50
Author: David W. Fischer

Unusual shapes and colors make many mushrooms alluring to the eye, while the exotic flavors and textures of edible mushrooms are a gourmet delicacy for the palate. Yet many people never venture beyond the supermarket offerings, fearing that all other mushrooms are poisonous.

With amateur mushroom hunters especially in mind, David Fischer and Alan Bessette have prepared Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America. This field guide presents more than 100 species of the most delicious mushrooms, along with detailed information on how to find, gather, store, and prepare them for the table. More than 70 savory recipes, ranging from soups and salads to casseroles, canapes, quiches, and even a dessert, are included.

Throughout, the authors constantly emphasize the need for correct identification of species for safe eating. Each species is described in detailed, nontechnical language, accompanied by a list of key identifying characteristics that reliably rule out all but the target species. Superb color photographs also aid in identification. Poisonous "lookalikes" are described and illustrated, and the authors also assess the risks of allergic or idiosyncratic reactions to edible species and the possibilities of chemical or bacterial contamination.

Bacterial Membranes: Structural and Molecular Biology

Bacterial Membranes: Structural and Molecular Biology Lowest new price: $342.00
Lowest used price: $580.44
List price: $360.00

Membranes are pivotal components of life, acting as formidable insulators that demarcate a living cell; generate energy in the form of ion gradients; transport ions, proteins, nucleic acids, nutrients, and metabolites; and provide transduction systems to sense the environment and to communicate with other cells. Membranes also provide shape and structure to cells and are important in cell motility. In addition, they fulfill a scaffolding function for proteins and organelles that interact with the extracellular environment. Written by specialists in the field, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the structural and molecular biology of cellular processes that occur at or near bacterial membranes. The book presents and discusses recent progress on the function and involvement of membranes in bacterial physiology, enabling a greater understanding of the molecular details of the cell envelope, its biogenesis, and its function. The topics covered include: cell wall growth * shape and division * the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria * outer membrane protein biosynthesis * bacterial lipoproteins * mycobacteria * lipid composition * ABC transporters * transport across the outer membrane * drug passage across membranes * bacterial membrane proteins * secretion systems * signal transduction * signalling mechanisms * bacterial membranes in adhesion and pathogenesis * membranes as a drug target. This cutting-edge text will provide a valuable resource for all those working in this field and is recommended for all microbiology libraries.
