We co-edited a book titled Macrophytes of the Danube River Basin, with leading scientists from experts from all of the Danube countries from Germany to Romania, including some other countries belonging to the Danube basin. The book anticipates the interest of a wide target group of potential readers, namely scientists, specialists with a focus on nature conservation, school and university teachers, water managers and engineers involved in river restoration, policy makers, and members of all groups engaged in the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive and the EU Habitats Directive.

A novel absorption correction approach for 3D elemental distribution imaging obtained with a laboratory confocal micro X-ray fluorescence spectrometer was developed. The procedure is suited especially for biological samples, as a constant dark matrix with a varying minor or trace element distribution is assumed. As proof of concept, the embryonic region of pearl millet seeds is investigated. The distribution of elemental micronutrients is compared in seeds of two pearl millet genotypes (high and low Fe).

The aim was to determine conditions under which rutin can be retained during production of Tartary buckwheat (Fagopyrum tataricum) dough. Tartary buckwheat flour was hydrothermally treated by mixing with water at 25, 40, 60, 80 and 95 °C, with unprocessed Tartary buckwheat flour as control. With hydrothermal treatments at 25, 40 and 60 °C, most of the rutin was transformed to quercetin. However, for hydrothermal treatments at 80 and 95 °C, rutin was retained due to denaturation of the rutin-degrading enzymes during hydrothermal treatment. Tartary buckwheat dough produced at 95 °C contained 12 mg rutin/g dry matter. Based on these characteristics, dough from hydrothermally treated Tartary buckwheat is a promising, rutin-rich functional food material. Paper is important, since this is the first report to describe a temperature threshold for denaturation of rutin-degrading enzymes in any buckwheat material.
