Achieving sustainable cultivation of coffee 
 
Coffee is one of the most widely traded commodities in the world and is a popular beverage enjoyed by many every day. Such popularity and demand can lead to a number of challenges in coffee cultivation, which we discuss in our latest title, 'Achieving sustainable cultivation of coffee'. 
 
The book is edited by Dr Philippe Lashermes of the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD). Content covered includes recent research on coffee genetics, physiology and genetic diversity along with the latest developments in breeding new varieties. 
 
This title is set for release in December and promises to, "be useful for scientists from universities, research institutes and industry in coffee-producing and coffee-consuming countries.”

New research suggests cloning safer than previously thought 
 
Born at the world-famous Roslin Institute in 1996, Dolly became the most famous sheep in the world by being the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell. 
 
Over the years, there have been concerns that the cloning process had severe side effects such as premature aging and arthritis. These concerns have been addressed by new research from the University of Nottingham and Glasgow, Scientists have now published a radiographic assessment of the skeletons of Dolly herself, her daughter Bonnie, and Megan and Morag, the first two animals to be cloned from differentiated cells. These findings show cloned animals age in a similar way to naturally-conceived sheep, suggesting cloning is safer than previously thought. 
 
Developments in breeding techniques, animal health and welfare are just a small number of topics covered in our title, 'Achieving sustainable production of sheep'. Edited by Professor Johan Greyling of the University of the Free State, South Africa, this title is said to be "encyclopaedic in coverage and includes the cream of the world's animal scientists specifically with expertise in sheep farming."
