About the book

Fruits contain important vitamins, minerals, phytochemical compounds (including anthocyanin, flavonoids, lycopene, carotenoids, phenolic, etc.) and dietary fiber. These phytochemicals protect plants against macro and micro-animals and improve their adaptability to different environments, including stress conditions. These phytochemicals also reduce the risk of numerous diseases and help in curing – when consumed by humans – certain cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and hypertension. No single fruit can provide all essential nutrients, so a diversified diet of fruits and vegetables is recommended for a healthy lifestyle. Fruits are botanically diverse, seasonal and perishable. They have an important part in the global economy. Fruit industry, which includes the selection, reproduction, production, harvesting, handling, preservation and marketing of fruits, is very important for human diet and sustainability on the earth. The each and every step in fruit industry must aim to achieve fruit safety and security. Therefore, this book aims to present and discuss current available information in fruit industry and highlight developing new topics for further research and industrial developments.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Zvjezdana Tintor

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
