MOST PEOPLE LOOK FORWARD to the spring season and the profusion of flowers it brings. Many vacationers carefully time their travels to coincide with specific blooming seasons: Citrus along Blossom Trail in southern California, tulips in Holland. In Washington, D.C., and throughout Japan, the cherry blossoms are received with spirited ceremonies. As spring progresses into summer, summer into fall, and fall into winter, wildflowers bloom at their appointed times.
This book is a compilation of 29 chapters focused on: pesticides and food production, environmental effects of pesticides, and pesticides mobility, transport and fate. The first book section addresses the benefits of the pest control for crop protection and food supply increasing, and the associated risks of food contamination.
Detailed assessment of impacts of more than 50 Farmer Field Schools (FFS) in 11 provinces through
which over 2,000 farmers were trained from 2005 to 2006 has shown many beneficial effects. Farmers
have increased knowledge and their skills in planting and protecting citrus trees and at the same time
they have increase awareness of the recording and post-harvest storage, marketing and especially the
changes in farming practices significantly after participating in FFS.
Flavonols are produced by the desaturation of flavanols
catalyzed by flavonol synthase. The enzyme belongs to the
class of intermolecular dioxygenases which depend on
molecular oxygen and Fe
/2-oxoglutarate for activity, and
have been in focus of structural studies recently. Flavonol
synthase cDNAs were cloned from six plant species, but
none of the enzymes had been studied in detail.

Citrus limon possesses a high content and large variety of monoterpenoids, especially in the glands of the fruit ﬂavedo. The genes responsible for the production of these monoterpenes have never been isolated.
