  • Evidence grows daily of the rapid changes in climate due to human activities and their impact on plants and animals. Plant function is inextricably linked to climate and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. On the shortest and smallest scales the climate affects the plant’s immediate environment and thus directly influences physiological processes. On longer and larger time and space scales climate influ- ences species distribution and community composition and determines what crops can be viably produced in managed agricultural, horticultural and forestry ecosys- tems.

  • In order to understand and manage our air quality resources, it is necessary to gain a fundamental understanding of the principles that govern our ability to do so. From a local perspective, it may be considered desirable to install huge fans in order to “blow the smog away,” but from a technological and scientific perspective it is not feasible. Likewise, from a regional or continental perspective, it is not acceptable to merely transfer air contaminants from one location to another one by dilution or “blowing it away.”...

  • Sustainable forest management (SFM) is not a new concept. However, its popularity has increased in the last few decades because of public concern about the dramatic decrease in forest resources. SFM is generally implemented using criteria and indicators (C&I) that define forest management standards, and several countries have established their own sets of C&I within the framework of different international or regional processes. Nevertheless, none of the C&I systems have been universally accepted and future research should consider the current and future indicators....

  • Numerous authors proposed chapters on their work, and those presented here are the fruit of those proposals. As editor of this book, it has been my pleasure to collaborate with these many, fine contributing scientists. This text brings forth a great amount of fresh information on the biogeography and ecology of poorly known taxa and landscapes, and explores biogeographic processes not previously studied. The assembled work is an anthology of issues in modern biogeography, with topics ranging across regional to global spatial scales, and ecological to evolutionary temporal scales.

  • Soil reactivity with chemical oxidants is also important when considering the costs of the use of chemical oxidation. Excessive loss of a chemical oxidant that is reacting with organics in soil, instead of reacting with the contaminants, may preclude the use of the technology as an economically viable approach to site remediation. Different chemical oxidation technologies are most appropriate for particular hydrogeologic conditions. For example, Fenton’s Reagant may not be ideal for groundwater with high concentrations of carbonate.

  • But there is another potential impact for the environment and nature conservation which is a much more positive one. The 1999 structural fund regulations for the first time recognised that the funds could be used for the protection and improvement of the environment (emphasis added). This change in wording was extremely significant – for the first time the doors were open to local and regional authorities and national governments to start putting forward environmental and nature programme proposals which meet the European Union’s cohesion policy objectives set out in the Treaty.

  • The major sources of carbon monoxide pollution are automotive exhaust and emissions from large industrial combustion sources such as electrical power plants. Because these sources produce many contaminants in addition to carbon monoxide -- such as fine particles and nitrogen oxides -- it is often difficult to isolate the health effects of ambient carbon monoxide from those of other pollutants. In addition to carbon monoxide generated outside, there are also important indoor sources of the pollutant.

  • Microorganisms associated with the production of volatile compound in spoilt mango fruits sold in Sokoto town were isolated and identified. The organisms include seven species of bacteria and a species of yeast. These include Bacillus pumilus, Bacillus firmus, Brevibacillus laterosporus, Morganella morganii, Paenibacillus alvei, Staphylococcus saccharolyticus, Listeria monocytogenes and Candida krusei respectively. GC-MS analysis revealed the presence of eleven and sixteen volatile organic compound in the healthy and spoilt ripe mango fruits.

  • Services to implementing agencies. The limited capacity of implementing agencies to mainstream gender-responsive approach- es sometimes constrains the success of Bank projects and programs. The Bank itself has a limited capacity to provide technical assistance to implementing agencies, but one region has successfully estab- lished technical service facilities that rely on part-time consultants to advise these agencies on integrating gender-responsive approaches into project implementation.

  • Maxim, an extreme xeric semi-shrub of Tamaricaceae, is a constructive and dominant species of desert shrub vegetation (Liu et al. 1982; Wang et al., 2011; Bai et al., 2008). It is distributed widely on a large area of sand wasteland (Fig. 1a) and saline land (Fig. 1b) in arid and semiarid regions of central Asia from the western Erdos, Alaskans, Hexi Corridor, Qaidam Basin to Tarim Basin and Jungar Basin (from the east to the west) and forms the vast and distinctive landscape of the salt desert (Liu and Liu, 1996).

  • With Oracle Real Application Clusters (as with any other Oracle database) the Oracle Instance (the processes and memory structures allocated on a server to allow access to the data) is de-coupled from the Oracle Database (the physical structures residing on the storage, which actually hold the data. These structures are commonly known as ‘datafiles’). However, a clustered database (using more than one instance) differs from a single instance database in a way that the database can be accessed by multiple instances concurrently.

  • The corporate bond market is less developed than most in emerging East Asia, with private placements dominating. At 3.9% of GDP, corporate bonds are comparable to levels in the Philippines and Indonesia, where corporate finance is less well-developed, as well as with the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and Viet Nam, where state-ownership remains dominant (Figure 5). That said, corporate bond markets remain small in much of the region with the exception of the Republic of Korea (Korea) and Hong Kong, China.

  • The answer to this question is partly a matter of perspective. Current scientific evidence suggests that to mitigate the risk of dangerous climate change, global GHG emissions must be reduced by 60 to 80 percent by mid-century, 14 equivalent to many billions of tons of annual reductions. In this context, the contribution of the voluntary carbon offset market – even under the most optimistic demand scenarios – is likely to be small.

The GITE projects and programmes are being developed in three clusters of activities. The Partnership for Vehicle and Fuel Technology Modernization (PVFTM) is intended to create a structured forum to investigate the reasons that more appropriate technologies are not used in particular regions, and what can be done to overcome the barriers to their use.
