  • Publishers are not dealing with an incremental increase in workload associated with peer review, but rather a crush of manuscripts that must be fed through processes and procedures that may struggle to keep ahead of this tide.

  • Amidst the many advantages of gas turbine (GT) combined cycles (CC) popular today from various standpoints (lower investment than for new greenfield plants, reduced environmental impact, and faster installation and startup), one drawback is that the achievable output decreases significantly as the ambient inlet air temperature increases. The lower density of warm air reduces mass flow through the GT. And, unfortunately, hot weather typically corresponds to peak power loads in many areas. So the need to meet peak-load and power-sales contract requirements causes many ...

  • Organic farming is a modern way of agriculture management, not using any chemical treatments which have negative effects on the environment, human health or animal health. It produces organic foodstuffs, and at the same time enhances the living conditions of animals. It contributes to environmental protection and helps biodiversity to increase. Organic farming does not mean going ‘back’ to traditional (old) methods of farming. Many of the farming methods used in the past are still useful today.

  • The last two decades have witnessed an extensive growth in foreign direct investment (FDI) flows to developing countries. This has been accompanied by an increase in competition amongst the developing countries to attract FDI, resulting in a rise in investment incentives offered by the host governments and removal of restrictions on operations of foreign firms in their countries. This has also led to an ever-increasing number of bilateral investment treaties (BITs) and regional agreements on...

  • The rapid economic growth in Vietnam has resulted in an increasing demand for electricity. This in turn translates to a higher rate of coal resource extraction and consequent rise in pollution of water and land resources. This study estimated the environmental costs associated with the electricity demand requirements of the coal electricity sector, as a component of the long-run marginal opportunity cost (LR-MOC) of electricity production.

  • Weeds severely affect crop quality and yield. Therefore, successful farming relies on their control by coordinated management approaches. Among these, chemical herbicides are of key importance. Their development and commercialization began in the 1940's and they allowed for a qualitative increase in crop yield and quality when it was most needed. This book blends review chapters with scientific studies, creating an overview of some the current trends in the field of herbicides.

  • The soil ecosystem provides services such as carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling, water purification, provisioning of industrial and pharmaceutical goods, and a mitigating sink for chemical and biological agents. However, the soil is subject to various degradation processes. Its relation with the hydrosphere, biosphere, and atmosphere makes the interacting processes even more complex. Moreover, as the soilhuman interactions increase, threats, leading to a series of impacts on soil health, become more important....

  • There is increasing awareness of the nature and complexity of the processes influencing river channels and the maintenance of fish habitats. Increased understanding highlights the sensitivity of these processes and the way in which they also underpin the biodiversity and amenity value of rivers. It shows the need for careful planning and design if management is to be sustainable and is to achieve its objectives without producing unanticipated and detrimental impacts. There is a clear need to consider carefully the consequences of management intervention in river channels.

  • The percent literate in the SEC is substantially higher than indicated for the population 60 and over in the 1998 census. This largely reflects a process of cohort succession through which persons who were 54-59 in 1998, and thus not part of the 60+ population at that time, aged into the 60 and over population by 2004 while at the same time some persons who were 60 or over in 1998 died, especially among the oldest age groups. Since literacy was generally increasing over time in Cambodia, the average literacy level of younger cohorts who moved into the...
