After completing this unit, you should be able to: To understand the problem definition process; to learn the steps involved in the marketing research process; to understand the components of the research request; to learn the advantages and disadvantages of survey, observation, and experimental research techniques; to become familiar with how the research process is initiated.
As science, ecology is often accused of being weak because of its basic lack of
predictive power (Peters 1991) and the many ecological concepts judged vague
or tautological (Shrader-Frechette and McCoy 1993). Also, important paradigms
that dominated the ecological scene for years have been discarded in
favor of new concepts and theories that swamp the most recent ecological
literature (e.g., the abandoning of the island biogeography theory in favor of
the metapopulations theory; Hanski and Simberloff 1997).
The objective of this document is to provide a quick overview of market
research techniques. More detail can be found in the Market Research
Handbook (PD Net #6229) or by contacting a marketing science specialist.
Shrimp farming is an evolving sector of agriculture that creates important economic
opportunities in many rural communities plagued by under and unemployment. This
water farming practice relies on the wise and responsible use of coastal natural
resources and habitats. The long-term, local success of shrimp farming is also influenced
by global market forces, consumer preferences and international food safety standards.
Advances depend on accessibility of critical research, educational and laboratory services.
"Advanced Image Acquisition, Processing Techniques and Applications" is the first book of a series that provides image processing principles and practical software implementation on a broad range of applications. The book integrates material from leading researchers on Applied Digital Image Acquisition and Processing. An important feature of the book is its emphasis on software tools and scientific computing in order to enhance results and arrive at problem solution.

A definitive summary of novel techniques, this 1st volume in the New Technologies Series details the most current and multidisciplinary approach to new technologies used in general plastic, hand, peripheral nerve, microsurgery, breast, esthetic, and trauma surgery and provides an overview of the most important and clinically relevant plastic surgery research.
New surgical images of new surgical approaches are all accompanied with anatomical descriptions.
Protected cropping provides vegetable growers with an opportunity to enhance product
quality and improve food safety. The overall objective of this project was to provide
Vietnamese scientists and extension specialists with the training and tools to implement
and foster regionally feasible improvements to current vegetable production practices and
supply chains. This was achieved through: 1) greenhouse replicated experiments and
demonstration trials in Northern, Central and Southern Vietnam; 2) four in-country
workshops and 3) two Australian study tours for research and extension personnel.
The need for more rigorous and systematic research in public administration has grown as the
complexity of problems in government and nonprofit organizations has increased. This book
describes and explains the use of research methods that will strengthen the research efforts of
those solving government and nonprofit problems.
This book is aimed primarily at those studying research methods in masters and doctoral
level courses in curricula that concern the public and nonprofit sector.
As a major rice exporter worldwide, the quality of rice has become a central issue for farmers in Vietnam, especially in the rainy harvest season. Therefore, it is important to dry the rice as quickly as possible to prevent damage but maintain quality. Conventional drying techniques such as flat bed dryers can take up to 8 hours (or more) to dry the moisture rice to safety. High-temperature drying can allow the rice to dry more quickly, so space and time taken to dry the rice can be shorter nhieu.Nghien agricultural science...
The synthesis and characterization of activated carbons (ACs) obtained from lignocellulosic
precursors is a topic widely studied by a number of researchers worldwide. In
the last decades, an increase has been observed in the number of publications related
to the synthesis, modification, characterization and application of ACs obtained from
lignocellulosic materials. Particularly, the applications of these carbons are primarily
focused in the removal of several inorganic and organic pollutants from water and
Detecting Stability and Causes of Change in Population Density
Other chapters in this volume focus on various methods for quantifying density or other population qualities. Here I focus on the techniques ecologists use to extract the dynamics
In 1932, James Chadwick discovered the neutron, but initially the only sources
of neutrons were from the radioactive decay of unstable nuclei. It was not until
1942 when Enrico Fermi constructed the first nuclear reactor in the squash
courts beneath the University of Chicago’s Stagg Field, that a controlled and
sustained nuclear chain reaction was achieved. After World War II, nuclear
reactors became available for civilian research, and in 1945 Ernest Wollan set
up a double-crystal diffractometer at ORNL’s Graphite Reactor. This marks
the beginning of neutron scattering....
Bacteriology is essentially a practical study, and even the elements of its technique can only be taught by personal instruction in the laboratory. This is a self-evident proposition that needs no emphasis, yet I venture to believe that the former collection of tried and proved methods has already been of some utility, not only to the student in the absence of his teacher, but also to isolated workers in laboratories far removed from centres of instruction, reminding them of forgotten details in methods already acquired.
Genetic improvement of fish species is considered a priority area for research and development by the government of Viet Nam, particularly in the context of rural development, food security and poverty alleviation. The current proposal has been developed in consultation with Vietnamese staff of participating institutions. The project builds upon the existing collaborative links between Deakin University and the Research Institutes of Aquaculture (RIAs) in Viet Nam.
The proposed activity is the most appropriate approach to the problems outlined under Section 1.5. Vietnamese and Australian scientists and industry stakeholders will work jointly, intensively and sequentially to: (i) describe the existing situations; (ii) identify and describe problems and constraints; (iii) develop recommendations and plans for mitigating the constraints and encouraging future research and development in the industry; and (iv) seek industry feedback by wide dissemination and discussion of the plans, proposals, and findings and recommendations....
The Research Centre for Forest Tree Improvement (RCFTI) is a unit within the Forest
Science Institute of Vietnam (FSIV) which specialises in tree improvement research and
delivery of genetically improved seed and planting stock to meet the planting requirements of
the Government of Vietnam (GoV) as well as community and private sector plantation
programs. RCFTI carries out an active program of research at stations throughout Vietnam,
with its principal research station at Ba Vi.
At last the book is finished – and I have now been asked to put my mind to the Preface! It occurs to me that writing a Preface is a unique art form. Admittedly, after limited research into Preface-writing, I propose, like innumerable authors before me, to start with the usual whinge – yes, to paraphrase Mrs Beeton from the Preface of her famous cookbook, if we had known ‘. . . what courageous efforts were needed to be made’, I am quite sure that we would never have started this enterprise. However, it is clear that one of the...
Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is an important component of GIS applications in many socio-economic areas. Especially, DEM has a very important role in monitoring and managing natural resources, preventing natural hazards, and supporting spatial decision making. Usually, DEM is built by interpolation from a limited set of sample points. Thus, the accuracy of the DEM is depended on the used interpolation method.
