In any case of 2007, the well known Bulgarian entomologist, stated professional in taxonomy and biology of Heteroptera, our colleague and pal, Michail Josifov, celebrated his eightieth birthday. An writer of 126 medical works and greater than 50 well known articles and books, he has defined nine new genera and one hundred forty four new species of real insects. In acceptance of his contribution to Bulgarian technological know-how, he has been provided the Order of Saints Cyril and Methodius. This booklet is an anniversary current from his colleagues from 20 nations and popularity of Michail Josifov's extraordinary contribution to the research of Heteroptera. The 32 articles, written via forty nine authors, current new facts at the beginning, zoogeography and species composition of heteropteran fauna from various components of all continents. various nomenclature and taxonomic judgements are advised. numerous difficulties of phylogeny, biology, karyosystematics and phylogeorgaphy of other Heteroptera species are treated.This publication contains the outline of two genera and 19 species, 1 genus and 14 species of that are named after Michail Josifov.

Proceedings of the eu Cooperation within the box of medical and Technical learn (COST 825) Symposium on Mammary Gland Biology, held September 16-18, 1999, in excursions, France.
it really is tough to overstate the evolutionary and sensible value of mammary tissue in biology. immense growth has been made through researchers in a number of disciplines, relatively over the past fifteen years, in the direction of figuring out the potential for this tissue to yield strong experimental versions for morphogenesis and tissue improvement; for mobile differentiation; for the biosynthesis and secretion of proteins, lipids, small molecules and inorganic salts; and for the coordination and law of those procedures. extra lately, the potential for exploiting the secretory epithelial cells of mammary tissue as `cell factories' has develop into a truth and the recombinant construction through lactating animals of increasingly more proteins, beneficial either within the pharmaceutical and `nutraceutical' fields, is in growth or lower than improvement.
additionally during this sphere of agricultural creation, genetic in addition to dietary applied sciences are below research and exploitation to optimize milk composition for numerous end-uses - for example in meals approach and manufacture. the chances of deriving health and wellbeing enjoy the bioactive houses of a few of the minor components of milk are rising to counter the highly-publicized destructive future health influence of over the top intake of saturated animal fat.
