Different types of mutation can vary in size, from structural variants to single base-pair substitutions, but what they all have in common is that their nature, size and location are often determined either by specific characteristics of the local DNA sequence environment or by higher order features of the genomic architecture. The genomes of higher organisms are now known to contain "pervasive architectural flaws" in that certain DNA sequences are inherently mutation prone by virtue of their base composition, sequence repetitivity and/or epigenetic modification....

.Risk Management of Water Supply and Sanitation Systems
.NATO Science for Peace and Security Series
This Series presents the results of scientific meetings supported under the NATO Programme: Science for Peace and Security (SPS). The NATO SPS Programme supports meetings in the following Key Priority areas: (1) Defence Against Terrorism; (2) Countering other Threats to Security and (3) NATO, Partner and Mediterranean Dialogue Country Priorities. The types of meeting supported are generally "Advanced Study Institutes" and "Advanced Research Workshops".
For much of history, few things have mattered more to humans than their
relations with soil. This is evidenced by a rich historical literature on aspects
of soil management and soil fertility, dating back to texts of ancient
civilizations of the Middle East, the Mediterranean, China, and India
(see McNeill and Winiwarter 2004).
Wildland fires are natural calamities that bring enormous environmental and economic damage worldwide
and some of them cause human death. Achieving effective fire fighting is associated with the possibilities
of predicting the characteristics of fire behaviour. Special attention needs to be drawn to meteorological
conditions and their effect on fire spread in a bed of vegetation. On the other hand, studying the effect of
forest fires on the environment is of equal significance for building the strategy and specific actions to be
undertaken in the fire fighting process.
Although farmers do not receive any support from society for the contribution of the dehesa
to welfare of society and the environment, they still conserve, prune and reforest oaks to
maintain fruit production to feed and fatten Iberian pigs during the montanera or pannage.
The ability of the Iberian pig breed to feed on acorns is a key feature in maintaining the
Coastal Ecosystems. Africa has three coastlines—along the
Mediterranean Sea in the north, the Atlantic Ocean in the west, and the
Indian Ocean in the east. These shores consist of stretches of sand, soil,
or rock. In general, plants and animals on Africa’s western coast are less
varied and numerous than on the eastern coast. The coastal environments
of Africa include coral reef, lagoon, mangrove, salt marsh, and
Ideally situated in the heart of southern France, equi-distant between the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic Ocean and
the Pyrenees mountains, Toulouse is emerging as a leading city in France for its quality of life.
The School is housed in the “Manufacture des Tabacs” campus, a short walk from the “Place du Capitole” and the
superb architecture of the historic town centre. Toulouse is a young and multi-ethnic city where students can easily
enjoy the lively streets, cafés and restaurant terraces as well as a rich cultural and sporting environment.
