  • Since the first desktop computers emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the power, speed and storage capacity has increased radically, especially in recent years. Indeed, the whole approach to computing and database management has shifted from the independent researcher keeping records for a particular project to state-of-the-art file storage systems, presentation and distribution over the World Wide Web.

  • The dehesa is both a resilient and a fragile system; its resilience derives from the perseverance of its operators, and its fragility is its susceptibility to unfavourable economic factors that influence its profitability (Siebold, 2009). Livestock grazing is an integral management component of a dehesa and undergirds the conservation function of the system. The livestock component, including cattle, accounts for the largest fraction of revenue from the dehesa.

  • This means that services which could potentially fall within the remit of both insurance schemes tend to be shifted to the LTC insurance because this is much cheaper. Secondly, although the revenues and costs of all the German health funds are equalized to take account of their respective member structures (age, gender) (Strukturausgleich), this is not the case for the revenues and costs of the LTC funds. This leads to a high disincentive for the LTC funds to minimize their costs.

  • Chlorine and other chemicals used to disinfect source water can form carcinogenic compounds when they react with organic matter. These compounds become a serious problem when nutrient overloads trigger recur- rent and persistent blooms of algae that contaminate source water. The reaction between chlorine and algal organic matter generates trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids, two types of disinfection byproducts that are federally regulated, as well as many other types of toxic byproducts. A study sponsored by the U.S.

  • Wetlands are the ecotonal or transitional zones between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems where the water table is usually at or near the surface of the land, which is covered by the shallow water (Mitsch & Gosselink, 1986). Due to these characteristics, wetlands provide opportunities for adaptations to different plant and animal species with high diversity of life-forms. Thus wetlands are among the most biologically diverse and productive ecosystems on earth.

  • This book addresses the significant environmental changes experienced by high latitude and high altitude ecosystems at the beginning of the 21st century. Increased temperatures and precipitation, reduction in sea ice and glacier ice, the increased levels of UV-radiation and the long-range transported contaminants in arctic and alpine regions are stress factors that challenge terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.

  • The dehesa is an ancient agrosilvopastoral system created by farmers to raise livestock, mainly on private lands. This system is highly appreciated by society and enjoys legal protection of the authorities because it is rich in biodiversity, a home to critically endangered species (Iberian lynx, imperial eagle and black vulture); a significant carbon sink; ethnologically and anthropologically valuable (culture and traditions); and is known for its scenic value.

  • Global warming and changes in climate have already had observed impacts on natural ecosystems and species. Natural systems such as wetlands, mangroves, coral reefs, cloud forests, Arctic and high latitude ecosystems are especially vulnerable to climate‐induced disturbances. Enhanced protection and management of biological resources and habitats can mitigate impacts and contribute to solutions as nations and communities strive to adapt to climate change. Biodiversity is the foundation and mainstay of agriculture, forests, and fisheries.

  • Estuaries are areas of high productivity, crucial in the life histories of many fish, invertebrates, and birds, for example, and the sustainability of estuarine biodiversity is vital to the ecological and economic health of coastal regions. On the other hand, estuarine ecosystems are exposed to toxic anthropogenic effluents transported by rivers from remote and nearby conurbations and industrial and agricultural concerns.

  • The impacts of climate change and air pollution are particularly difficult to identify with a high degree of confidence. One of the main reasons for this is that climate and air pollution are rarely measured at sites where biodiversity is monitored so potential relationships can only be assessed by using interpolated national data.
