  • The focus of the MA is on ecosystem services (the benefits people obtain from ecosystems), how changes in ecosystem services have affected human well-being in the past, and what role these changes could play in the present as well as in the future. The MA is an assessment of responses that are available to improve ecosystem management and can thereby contribute to the various constituents of human well-being. The specific issues addressed have been defined through consultation with the MA users.

  • These research teams study for example the impact and mechanisms of greenhouse gas emissions and atmospheric pollutant on climate, ozone depletion and carbon sinks (oceans and inland waters, forests and soil). They do research to understand the mechanisms and assess the impact of global change on the water cycle, water quality and availability, as well as soil functions and quality to provide the bases for management tools for sustainable water systems. Biodiversity and ecosystems are analysed to understand and minimise the negative impacts of human activities.

  • The DSS will enable examination of existing conditions, forecasting of future conditions, and simulation of alternatives that will be ecologically sustaining and socially desired. The DSS will address watershed, water quality, water quantity, groundwater and ecosystem restoration needs at the small watershed, major watershed, tributary river, and main stem Minnesota River reach levels of spatial scale. The DSS will enable forecasting future conditions.

  • To bridge this gap, the UN Committee of Experts on Environmental-Economic Accounting decided in its June 2011 meeting to include experimental ecosystem accounts in the scope of the revision of the System of Environmental-Economic Accounts revision by 2013. In Europe, a project to test the feasibility of ecosystem capital accounts was launched by the EEA in 2010 in anticipation of such stakeholder demands. The experimental accounts framework presented in this report builds upon the experience gained in this feasibility study.

  • The Facebook newsfeeds we will see at the end of next year will look very different from the ones we see now. We will see the rise of bigger, bolder, more interactive – and intrusive – Facebook advertisements in 2013. It was only a matter of time before Facebook sought to monetize and justify its massive valuation. The drive for effective and revenue-generating advertising will draw on its powerful social ecosystem, pushing the creative formats and placements far away from the ads we see today.

  • The outputs of an ARIES session have numerous practical uses for conservation and economic development planning. Notably, they can show which regions are critical to maintaining the supply and flows of particular benefits for specific beneficiary groups. By prioritizing conservation and restoration activities around sources and sinks for particular services, benefit flows may be maintained or increased. Similarly, focusing development or extractive resource use outside these regions can prevent degradation of benefit flows.

  • There are 4 million miles of roads in the United States. One hundred years ago, roads were primarily unpaved and had half the number of miles of the present U.S. road system. As the system grew, roads became wider and more complex structurally to provide for more and heavier traffic. New construction technology and greater structural stability were needed to improve the road system. All phases of road development—from construction and use by vehicles to maintenance—affect physical and chemical soil conditions, water flow, and air and water quality.

  • S ystems ecology, also called ecosystem theory, offers today a complete theory about how ecosystems are working as systems. The theory will inevitably be improved in the coming years, when it hopefully will be used increasingly to explain ecological observations and to facilitate environmental management including the use of ecotechnology. The theory is, however, sufficiently developed today to be presented as a complete theory that offers a wide spectrum of applications.

  • We welcome efforts by the European Commission to review the functioning of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive and to identify areas which need improvement. We also appreciate that the Commission has facilitated public consultations through web-based questionnaires. However, the questionnaire provided does not allow respondents to express opinions on all the important aspects of the Directive, and specifically on its functioning in practice.

  • About one million children develop tuberculosis (TB) annually worldwide, accounting for about 11% of all TB cases. Children with TB differ from adults in their immunological and pathophysiological response in ways that may have important implications for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of TB in children. There is an urgent need to improve the diagnosis and management of children with TB, and the prevention of TB in children, by ensuring their inclusion under the implementation of the Stop TB strategy by National TB Programmes.

  • The rising incidence of invasive species displacing endemics and altering water chemistry and local foodwebs increasingly affects freshwater systems and should be considered a water quality problem (Carr and Neary 2008). Aquatic species have in many cases been introduced deliberately into distant ecosystems for recreational, economic, or other purposes. In many instances, these introductions have decimated endemic fish and other aquatic organisms, and they can also degrade local watersheds.

  • Low-income working families, including those with CSHCN, relied on SCHIP as an essential source of health insurance coverage for their children. The vast majority of the program’s resources were spent on the poorest of eligible families. Given the income distribution of uninsured children, future children’s health insurance expansions are likely to continue serving the neediest families. After enrollment in SCHIP, more children had a regular source of care and used preventive care, fewer children had unmet health care needs, and families experienced higher satisfaction with care.

  • ON To develop these Guidelines, the FVPF partnered with advisors from the National Health Care Standards Campaign on Domestic Violence: a coalition of health care providers, public health and policy leaders, and domestic violence advocates from 15 states working to promote improved health care responses to victims of abuse. The FVPF also invited the Advisory Committee from the 1999 Preventing Domestice Violence: Clinical Guidelines on Routine Screening to be reviewers. Advisory Committee members worked assiduously to develop and revise the Guidelines.

  • The PHP ecosystem has changed dramatically in the past six years. Prior to PHP 5’s advent, we PHP developers were primarily creating our projects on an ad-hoc basis, each project differing from its predecessor; if we paid attention, each project improved on the previous— but there was no guarantee. While tools and practices existed for managing code quality and standards, they were still maturing, and not in widespread use.

  • 24 Modified and Combined Systems • High-solids treatment wetlands with frequently cleaned forebays • Operating wetlands in a load-and-rest operating regime to address bed clogging or improve treatment efficiency There are situations where these wetland modifications make sense from a process design and economic standpoint, as discussed in this chapter. However, the system will invariably require more operator attention, and there is often a reduction in system reliability.
