is a bimonthly peer-reviewed medical journal that covers all aspects of aging in women, especially during the menopause. As the official journal of the International Menopause Society, "
" also publishes position statements and workshop proceedings from the society.
fruits are able to continue ripening after being picked, a process accelerated by ethylene gas. Non-
fruits can ripen only on the plant and thus have a short shelf life if harvested when they are ripe.
fruits and continue to ripen after being picked from the tree.
is a stage of fruit ripening associated with increased ethylene production and a rise in cellular respiration. Apples, bananas, melons, apricots, tomatoes (among others) are
fruit. Citrus, grapes, strawberries are non-
(they ripen without ethylene and respiration bursts). However, there are non-
melons and apricots, and grapes and strawberries harbour several ethylene receptors which are active.
is the final physiological process that marks the end of fruit maturation and the beginning of fruit senescence. Its defining point is the sudden rise in respiration of the fruit and normally takes place without any external influences. After the
period, respiration rates (noted by carbon dioxide production) return to or below the point before the event. The
event also leads to other changes in the fruit including pigment changes and sugar release. For those fruits raised as food the
event marks the peak of edible ripeness, with fruits having the best taste and texture for consumption. After the event fruits are more susceptible to fungal invasion and begin to degrade with cell death.

The canistel displays
fruit ripening. A fully mature fruit shows an intense yellow skin color. It will eventually soften and drop from the tree. Insects and birds avoid the fruit flesh, perhaps because of its astringent properties, that are much reduced in senescent fruits, but still perceptible to the human palate. Apparently mature fruits severed from the tree while still hard often fail to develop the desired
changes in terms of reduced astringency and a texture reminiscent of egg yolk. This, and the fact that
fruits quickly start to decay at ambient temperatures, may have contributed to the low economic importance of the canistel.
One way of assessing the impact on women of some of these menopause effects are the Greene
Scale questionnaire, the Cervantes Scale and the Menopause Rating Scale.

fruits undergo a number of changes during fruit ripening. The major changes include fruit softening, sweetening, decreased bitterness, and colour change.
The legacy of these
years is still with us to some extent: the age of reason is often taken to be when a child reaches 7, and in many countries the age of full adulthood is taken as 21.
" was established in 1998. According to the "Journal Citation Reports", the journal has a 2014 impact factor of 2.264. The editors-in-chief are Anna Fenton (Christchurch Women's Hospital) and Nick Panay 'Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital).
Keratoderma climactericum, also known as "
keratoderma," "Haxthausen's disease," and "Acquired plantar keratoderma," is a skin condition characterized by hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles beginning at about the time of menopause.
Grapes can be eaten fresh as table grapes or they can be used for making wine, jam, juice, jelly, grape seed extract, raisins, vinegar, and grape seed oil. Grapes are a non-
type of fruit, generally occurring in clusters.
Tomatoes have been used as a model organism to study the fruit ripening of
fruit. To understand the mechanisms involved in the process of ripening, scientists have genetically engineered tomatoes.
Rambutans are not a
fruit — that is, they ripen only on the tree and appear not to produce a ripening agent such as the plant hormone, ethylene, after being harvested.
The Society's official journal, "
", the Journal of Adult Women's Health and Medicine, was founded in 1998 and is listed in Index Medicus/MEDLINE. The editors-in-Chief are Anna Fenton (New Zealand), and Nick Panay (United Kingdom). It publishes international, original, peer-reviewed research on all aspects of aging in men and women, especially during the menopause and
. The content of the journal covers the whole range of subject areas relevant to
studies and adult women’s health and medicine, including underlying endocrinological changes, treatment of the symptoms of the menopause and other age-related changes, hormone replacement therapies, alternative therapies, effective life-style modifications, non-hormonal midlife changes, and the counselling and education of perimenopausal and postmenopausal patients.
Ripening occurs when a fruit is mature. Ripeness is followed by senescence and breakdown of the fruit. The category “fruit” refers also to products such as aubergine, sweet pepper and tomato. Non-
fruit only ripen while still attached to the parent plant. Their eating quality suffers if they are harvested before fully ripe as their sugar and acid content does not increase further. Examples are citrus, grapes and pineapple. Early harvesting is often carried out for export shipments to minimise loss during transport, but a consequence of this is that the flavour suffers.
fruit are those that can be harvested when mature but before ripening has begun. These include banana, melon, papaya, and tomato. In commercial fruit marketing the rate of ripening is controlled artificially, thus enabling transport and distribution to be carefully planned. Ethylene gas is produced in most plant tissues and is important in starting off the ripening process. It can be used commercially for the ripening of
fruits. However, natural ethylene produced by fruits can lead to in- storage losses. For example, ethylene destroys the green colour of plants. Leafy vegetables will be damaged if stored with ripening fruit. Ethylene production is increased when fruits are injured or decaying and this can cause early ripening of
fruit during transport.
