The scope has expanded to include new processes developed at the micro- and nanoscales, applications of new sensory technologies, and sustainability issues related to food and agricultural security. Readers do not need extensive technical backgrounds in order to understand the articles, written by experts from around the world. Useful illustrations, graphs, and formulas continue to enhance the narrative entries. In addition to an excellent index and alphabetical table of contents, a topical table of contents groups articles across both volumes under agricultural, biological, and food engineering taxonomies. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers. --K.L. Carriveau Jr., Baylor University, in CHOICE, July 2011, Vol.48, No.11 The concept of a reference on this field of engineering is an important step in recognizing the importance of not only engineers but all scientists in the food and agricultural industries. --John J. Classen, Professor of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, USA ! a valuable resource [for] any library in our field. --Mark R. McLellan, Professor and Director, Institute of Food Science and Engineering, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, USA ! covers a wide ranging set of technical topics and contemporary perspectives. --Bernard Y. Tao, Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA ! one of the best encyclopedias I have seen in the area of agricultural, food and biological engineering. Dr. Heldman is to be commended. --Daryl Lund, Professor of Food Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA ! an exhaustive, in-depth and professionally thorough resource. --MBR: Internet Bookwatch This is the first publication to bring together authoritative information in this discipline ! highly recommended. --CHOICE ! articles are carefully written and peer-reviewed ! this title fills an existing need. I would recommend it to public, academic, special libraries with programs in agriculture, engineering, and food science. --E-Streams
