  • In contemporary debates about democratic governance, the concept of accountability is hard to avoid. At least from a European perspective, recent innovations in political and administrative decision-making have multiplied opportunities for citizens to hold to account those who exercise governmental authority. Or so we are told. Whether busy modernizing constitutional structures or realigning public services along market-led lines, our political representatives have proclaimed a new era of open and responsive government.

  • This book challenges the conventional wisdom that natural resource wealth promotes autocracy. Oil and other forms of mineral wealth can promote both authoritarianism and democracy, the book argues, but they do so through different mechanisms; an understanding of these different mechanisms can help elucidate when either the authoritarian or democratic effects of resource wealth will be relatively strong.

  • UNIT 2 : BIOMES AND ECOSYSTEMS Influenced by latitude, elevation, and associated moisture and temperature regimes, terrestrial biomes vary geographically from the tropics through the arctic and include various types of forest, grassland, shrub land, and desert. These biomes also include their associated freshwater communities: streams, lakes, ponds, and wetlands. Marine environments, also considered biomes by some ecologists, comprise the open ocean, littoral (shallow water) regions, benthic (bottom) regions, rocky shores, sandy shores, estuaries, and associated tidal marshes.

  • For many years, interest in the prevention of diseases in children was concentrated on improvement of the postnatal environment. However, since the major problems of infectious diseases and nutrition were solved with the help of vaccinations and better feeding regimes, it became clear that new approaches were needed to prevent and treat the disorders and problems we are facing now - problems mainly arising in prenatal life.

  • The Baltic Sea is one of the most investigated water bodies in the world. For decades, the many highly industrialised nations around the Baltic have financed basic and applied investigations, as well as the building and development of research stations and vessels. After World War II, research in the Baltic Proper was intensified and investigations became much more international. The main goals of such investigations were analysis of the eutrophication and pollution of the Baltic Sea, and development of mitigating strategies (e.g. the HELCOM-Program).

  • The role of monetary analysis in the ECB’s monetary policy strategy is founded on the robust positive relationship between longer-term movements in broad money growth and inflation, whereby money growth leads inflationary developments. This relationship is found to hold true across countries and monetary policy regimes.

  • Economic reforms implemented since the formation of the GPA have borne positive results for the economy. Real GDP grew by about 6% in 2009 and is estimated to have risen strongly to about 9.0% in 2010, reflecting strong performances in mining (47% growth) due to rising mineral and metal prices and higher agricultural output arising from higher output of tobacco, sugar, maize and cotton. Increases in agricultural output (34% growth) have historically supported manufacturing sector production (Box 1).

  • Alterations to fire regimes have resulted in many changes to the biological communities including changes in vegetation composition and structure and vegetation type conversions or ecosystem migrations. This text details many of these changes, explains how fire has changed as an ecosystem process, and provides insights for determining the direction that the changes might take in the future.

  • A review of the regulatory framework can also provide some indication of the level of competition within a country’s banking system. Other things being equal, competition should be greater when regulatory barriers to entry and exit is low, encouraging new entrants. The regulatory framework for the EAC region, summarized in Table 1, suggests a relatively open regime with similar conditions of entry and prudential treatment for all types of banks across countries.

  • Environmental stress deleteriously affects every aspect of an ectotherm’s biological function. Frequent exposure of terrestrial insects to temperature variation has thus led to the evolution of protective biochemical and phy-siological mechanisms. However, the physiological mechanisms underlying the positive impact of fluctuating thermal regimes (FTRs) on the fitness and survival of cold-exposed insects have not been studied.

  • The relationships between international intellectual property treaties, the United Nations international environmental treaties (first and fore- most the convention on Biological Diversity), the relevant customary norms and soft law form a complex network of obligations that some- times conflict with each other. The first set of treaties creates private rights while the latter affirms the sovereignty rights of States over genetic resources and related knowledge and creates international regimes of exploitation of the same....

  • Many harms flow across the ever-more porous sovereign borders of a globalizing world. These harms expose weaknesses in the international legal regime built on sovereignty of nation states. Using the Trail Smelter arbitration, one of the most cited cases in international environmental law, this book explores the changing nature of state responses to transboundary harm. Taking a critical approach, the book examines the arbitration’s influence on international law generally and international environ- mental law specifically.
