Www.sciencedirect. Crop growth and development are highly responsive to global climate change components such as elevated carbon dioxide (CO2), drought, and ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation.


Plant tolerance to these environmental stresses comprises its genetic potential, physiological changes, metabolism, and signaling pathways. 10. Adamse, P.

Elevated CO2 increases labile and stabile soil C pool as well as efficiency of organic pollutants rhizoremediation and phytoextraction of heavy metals. Conversely, both elevated O3 and UV radiation decrease inputs of assimilates to the rhizosphere being accompanied by inhibitory effects on decomposition processes, rhizoremediation, and heavy metals phytoextraction efficiency. Contrary to elevated CO2, O3, or UV-B decreases soil microbial biomass, metabolisable C, and soil Nt content leading to higher C/N of soil organic matter.

Prince William has helped announce the winners of this year's virtual Tusk Conservation Awards alongside famous faces, such as presenter Ben Fogle and singer Katherine Jenkins.


The Duke of Cambridge, 38, spoke via a video call from Kensington Palace in a clip shared to Instagram this evening, where he revealed the victor of the Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa. He was 'delighted' to present the lifetime achievement prize - given to an individual for their outstanding dedication to wildlife conservation - to Hipólito Lima, a rangers supervisor, from São Tomé and Príncipe, who has dedicated 26 years of his life to helping sea turtles survive. Launched with Prince William in 2013, the annual ceremony celebrates the achievements of extraordinary people, whose work protecting Africa's natural heritage might otherwise go unnoticed outside their fields.

How Nonprofits Get Really Big

Most of the members of this elite group got big by doing two things. They raised the bulk of their money from a single type of funder such as corporations or government – and not, as conventional wisdom would recommend, by going after diverse sources of funding. Just as importantly, these nonprofits created professional organizations that were tailored to the needs of their primary funding sources. Squeezed around a conference table designed for eight people, 12 leaders of a highly regarded nonprofit discuss how to fund the organization’s growth. The group’s programs bring young people from the inner city together with their peers from the suburbs to engage in leadership activities. One board member makes the case for additional government funding. How Nonprofits Get Really Big.

For $5,000 and ten hours you can now buy a 3D printed house. “The days of lengthy, inefficient, and costly construction projects could be coming to an end. Private inventor Ma Yihe designed a 3D printer that built ten houses in a single day! The china based company building and research center are all constructed of 3D printed walls. The building walls are energy efficient and made of recycled construction waste and mortar. “Not only is the printer environmentally ideal but it potentially has the ability to produce sound low cost housing for poverty stricken communities.

Slows Coastal Erosion Following the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004, a study led by Danish ecologist Finn Danielsen reported that coastal areas flush with mangrove trees were markedly less damaged than those without. The findings suggest that the trees shield the coastline (pdf) by reducing the height and energy of ocean waves and offer hard evidence that deforestation could result in increased coastal damage from storms. Captures CarbonMangroves are expert carbon scrubbers. A global inventory by McGill University environmental scientist Gail Chmura found that mangroves pack away carbon faster than terrestrial forests. Every year they hoard some 42 million tons, roughly equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of 25 million cars.

The Old Man and the Fig Tree - 15 Shevat. Today is Rosh Hashanah. Not the new year for humans, that's sometime in September, but the New Year for Trees. We celebrate by eating fruit, especially fruits significant to Israel; Those mystically inclined indulge in a festive "Seder"; and in modern-day Israel, the day has assumed the status of a kind of Arbor day and is commemorated by widespread planting of trees. Countries worldwide are attempting difficult transitions from state-planned to market economies. Most of these countries have fragile democratic regimes that are threatened by the high social and political costs of reform. Governments—and ultimately societies—have to make hard choices about allocating scarce public resources as they undergo these transitions. A central, often controversial, and most poignant question is how to protect vulnerable groups and the poor. What compensation, what "safety net" will be provided for them? Carol Graham argues that safety nets can provide an environment in which economic reform is more politically sustainable and poverty can be permanently reduced.

The author examines these trade-offs in detail, with a particular focus on how political and institutional contexts affect the kinds of safety nets that are implemented.


AU Careers. Preservation tree. 3D Printed Drones Fly into the Future. Over the past several years, drone usage dramatically increased. In 2016, global unit sales grew 60% to 2.2 million and revenue increased 36% to $4.5 billion. In the United States alone, American consumers bought 2.4 million hobbyist drones compared to 1.1 million in 2015. This year, revenue is expected to increase $6 billion while units should grow to 3 million. This constitutes 39% revenue growth and 34% unit growth from 2016 to 2017, according to a study conducted by the research firm Gartner Inc. Goodyear Is Trying to Make an Electricity-Generating Tire.

Generating and storing renewable energy, such as solar or wind power, is a key barrier to a clean-energy economy. When the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP) was established at Caltech and its partnering institutions in 2010, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Innovation Hub had one main goal: a cost-effective method of producing fuels using only sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide, mimicking the natural process of photosynthesis in plants and storing energy in the form of chemical fuels for use on demand.
