  • Our global environment now consists of numerous natural and artificial metals. Metals have played a critical role in industrial development and technological advances. Most metals are not destroyed; indeed, they are accumulating at an accelerated pace, due to the ever-growing demands of modern society. A fine balance must be maintained between metals in the environment and human health. It is with this view in mind that this book has been written to address diverse issues surrounding heavy metals in the environment.

  • When one is confronted with a new problem that involves the collection and analysis of data, two crucial questions are: How will using statistics help solve this problem? And, Which techniques should be used? This book is intended to help environmental engineers answer these questions in order to better understand and design systems for environmental protection. The book is not about the environmental systems, except incidentally. It is about how to extract information from data and how informative data are generated in the first place.

  • They use geological and distribution data on the island’s 1,284 plant genera and more than 2,000 endemic plant taxa to identify 19 biomes there, and they describe complex conservation challenges. The next chapter by Benny Chan and Pei-Fen Lee explores the biogeography of the barnacles of Taiwan, relating taxon distributions to coastal geomorphology and the complex array of oceanic currents around the island. Global climate changes in ocean water temperature may permit southerly, warmwater taxa to expand northward, invading habitat presently occupied by coldwater taxa....

  • RNA turnover and processing have now been demonstrated to be important steps that directly affect protein synthesis and the cell’s ability to survive in nature. However, the analysis of mRNA decay and polyadenylation in Escherichia coli has long been considered technically difficult. The development over the past 15 years of methods for the isolation and characterization of both mRNA and polyadenylated species has made the study of these important pathways of RNA metabolism more straightforward (Arraiano et al., 1988; O’Hara et al., 1995; Mohanty and Kushner, 1999)....

  • Desai et al. (2004) provide a meta-analysis of health effects from household solid fuel air pollution. Health effects were categorized by level of evidence from the research literature. Relative risk ratios associated with solid fuel use, relative to clean fuels such as LPG, were derived for each health outcome (table 3.1). 11 The national and global mortality and DALY estimates presented by WHO (2007) reflect the relative risk ratios in Desai et al, limiting the health effects to ALRI in children u5, and COPD and lung cancer in adult women and men. ALRI...

  • Cumulatively, all our individual footprints make up the unsustainable total demand. The solution to this problem is for people to take individual action to break down that large footprint. We need to change the way we live to combat climate change, conserve the world’s forests and protect our oceans. No-one wakes up in the morning and consciously decides to contribute to global warming; to help cut down a tropical rainforest; or to deprive future generations of a decent standard of living.

  • This paper gives insights into the BA segment with a special focus on Germany. First we introduce the concept of BA financing. In a second step we analyse the BA market in Germany. We conclude that there is a significant excess demand for early stage financing. In the third part of this paper we explain, how the EIF aims to address this by providing a flexible and timely support to the BAs market through establishing an intermediation infrastructure to efficiently leverage this investor base.

  • The analysis in this paper suggests that hedge funds play a very positive role in financial markets by providing liquidity to thin markets where mis-priced financial instruments are to be found. This type of activity reduces volatility rather than increasing it. Indeed with the rapid growth of structured products in recent years, particularly in Europe and Asia, hedge funds have been quite critical in containing the volatility that might otherwise have arisen.

  • With increasing global temperatures and the impact of climate change, it is accepted that there needs to be a reduction in global GHGEs which are contributing to climate change. As part of the UK Climate Change Act 2008 (www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2008/27) targets were set to cut the total annual GHGEs in the UK by at least 80% by 2050, with an interim target of a reduction of 34% by 2020 (based on the 1990 levels). The food system is a major contributor to GHGEs, with the food chain estimated to account for approximately a fifth of total GHGEs in the UK, the...

  • This study has focused on cardio-respiratory illnesses caused by the principal components of smog, namely ozone and air-borne particulate matter. 2 Smog consists of a complex “soup” of pollutants, some of which may cause human health problems directly and others which may be precursors to causal contaminants or which are closely correlated with causal contaminants and hence act as “markers” for human health risks. The complexities associated with the cause/effect relationships between this soup of pollutants and human health are explored in this report.

  • This book is a powerful tool for action. It cuts through the politicized rhetoric that too often clouds public discussion regarding climate change by offering practical and manageable advice as to how each of us can take steps that, collectively, can effect meaningful change. I believe it is exactly the kind of synthesis we need, with accessible, up-to-date scientific knowledge that we all will find useful. My scientific research has delved into many aspects of climate science for more than three decades.
