Against this background, we make several advances over the literature. We construct
a new dataset that covers virtually the entire global stock market in capitalization terms and
find—for this more comprehensive dataset—that industry effects have gone from less than
half as important as country effects in the mid-1990s to almost twice as important in recent
years. This shift is primarily driven by a dramatic rise in magnitude of industry effects, with
country effects roughly stable since the mid-1990s.
Land management is presently undergoing enormous change: away
from managing single resources to managing ecosystems. From forest
to tundra, to desert, to steppe, the world’s ecosystems vary vastly.
To manage them effectively we need to understand their geographic distribution
better. We need to do this at various levels of detail because
ecosystems exist at multiple scales in a hierarchy, from regional to local.
Maps are needed to display ecosystem distribution and hierarchy.
Until now, information on defining ecosystem boundaries has been
CO2SINK Project – CO2SINK is a European
Commission funded mid-scale (60,000 tonnes over
two years) demonstration project that aims to increase
the knowledge-base of CO2 storage in saline formations
and increase public confidence and awareness of GS.
The CO2SINK field site is located in Ketzin, Germany,
approximately 20 km west of Berlin at the site of a
former natural gas storage field. Storage will be at an
approximate depth of 650 meters in the saline Stuttgart

approach gives clearer information than does
the traditional way of expressing pollen data
as *relative pollen frequencies (RPFs). APFs are
particularly useful in site comparisons in

As the Enterprise Network Administrator for International Travel Agency, you are
responsible for designing and implementing internetwork connectivity. To ensure success
by reducing complexity, you start scaling the network by connecting only the Asia region
and one local site, West Tasman, to the San Jose corporate headquarters and ISP2.
When you are satisfied with the results, you will implement all other regions and sites.
