Nutrition science has evolved considerably in the past decade with new concepts and discoveries. In response, advanced nutrition courses now encompass material on macronutrients and micronutrients, subjects that have traditionally been studied separately. The brand new edition of Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients, Micronutrients, and Metabolism is a completely updated and expanded revision of two prior works, Advanced Nutrition Micronutrients and Advanced Nutrition Macronutrients, Second Edition, combined into one book for the first time. As in the original editions, this book has been written for those with a background in biochemistry and physiology who may or may not have a background in nutrition and dietetics. The first half of the text introduces integral concepts in nutrition science, such as energy, regulation of food intake, nutritional biochemistry, cell cycle, nutrigenomics, and epigenetics. The second portion of the book focuses on specific micronutrients and macronutrients with respect to their roles in metabolism. For ease of understanding, each chapter follows a specific format detailing each nutrient’s definition, absorption, use, and excretion. Chapters include discussions on protein, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, and minerals. Woven throughout the text are topics of clinical interest such as obesity, diabetes, lipemia, renal disease, and other conditions influenced by nutrition. New in this Edition: Regulation of food intake and feeding behavior Daily recommended nutrient intakes Metabolism Toxicology Nutrigenomics, epigenetics, and gene expression Cell cycle and life span nutrition The book presents a wealth of illustrations, diagrams, and tables that make complex concepts easy to grasp. It also provides references and a glossary of terms. The accompanying CD-ROM includes PowerPoint® slides of additional material. These features make it a resource that will spend more time on the desktop than on the bookshelf.

The explosion of knowledge about satiety and hunger has given new meaning to our understanding of the genetics of obesity. New interest in gene expression as related to nutrition and advances in the field of macronutrients has made the latest nutrition research intriguing. Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients adopts an integrated approach to the understanding of macronutrient nutrition. It provides scientific foundations of the current findings on energy balance, protein need, gene expression, and carbohydrate and lipid use, and maintains emphasis on the biochemical and physiological basis for nutrient need.

Advanced Nutrition: Micronutrients, a continuation of the first Advanced Nutrition text on macronutrients, focuses on how vitamins and minerals operate at the genomic level. It reflects the major research endeavors by nutrition scientists throughout the world in studying nutrient-gene, nutrient-nutrient, and nutrient-drug interactions. The book is organized in units-ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level courses-as well as for research. Unit 1 provides an overview of the effects of micronutrients on human health. Unit 2 discusses the integration of functional aspects of vitamins and minerals. The next three units, fat-soluble vitamins, water-soluble vitamins, and other organic nutrients, provide important data such as:

An understanding of the mineral nutrition of plants is of fundamental importance in both basic and applied plant sciences. The Second Edition of this book retains the aim of the first in presenting the principles of mineral nutrition in the light of current advances. This volume retains the structure of the first edition, being divided into two parts: Nutritional Physiology and Soil-Plant Relationships. In Part I, more emphasis has been placed on root-shoot interactions, stress physiology, water relations, and functions of micronutrients. In view of the worldwide increasing interest in plant-soil interactions, Part II has been considerably altered and extended, particularly on the effects of external and interal factors on root growth and chapter 15 on the root-soil interface. The second edition will be invaluable to both advanced students and researchers. Key Features * Second Edition of this established text * Structure of the book remains the same * 50% of the reference and 50% of the figures and tables have been replaced * Whole of the text has been revised * Coverage of plant (soil interactions has been increased considerably)

Fish Nutrition aims to present the state of knowledge of basic and applied nutritional requirements of fishes. Most of the information found in this book involves salmonids, their nutrition, and metabolism of nutrients. This is in view of the fact that more research has been done and completed with this fish. Although applied fish nutrition is a very broad field, this book focuses on some of its aspects. These include the classes of nutrients and requirements for several types of fishes. This book comprises of 11 chapters. The first few chapters deal with the general nutrient requirements of fishes. Then, other chapters discuss calorie and energy as well as micro- and macronutrient needs and requirements. The following chapters deal with the non-nutrient components of the diet, or those that influence the characteristics of food products including texture, odor, flavor, and color. Other topics covered are enzymes and systems of intermediary metabolism (Chapter 6); feed formulation and evaluation (Chapter 7); and salmonid husbandry techniques (Chapter 9). Nutritional fish diseases are also discussed in this book. Some of these diseases include thyroid tumor, gill disease, anemia, lipoid liver degeneration, and visceral granuloma. In Chapter 11, the relationship of nutrition and pathology is given emphasis. This chapter also tackles the diet and general fish husbandry. This topic is very important, because an adequate diet for fish husbandry is the foundation of fish farming.

Nutrient Metabolism, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive overview of the supply and use of nutrients in the human body and how the body regulates intake. Chapters detail the principles determining digestion and absorption of food ingredients and how these compounds and their metabolites get into the brain, cross the placenta and pass through the kidneys. Each nutrient’s coverage contains a nutritional summary that describes its function, its food sources, dietary requirements, potential health risks if deficient, and impact of excessive intake. This handbook contains the latest information on the scope of structures, processes, genes and cofactors involved in maintaining a healthy balance of nutrient supplies. Of interest to a wide range of professionals because nutrient issues connect to so many audiences, the book contains a useful link to dietary supplements.
