California Seaweed eFlora Understanding the consequences of global climate change and anthropogenic alteration of the marine environment The California coastal environment has suffered from the consequences of rapid population growth: alteration or degradation as the result of development, pollution, overfishing, oil drilling, mariculture and global marine transportation. Habitats for seaweeds, especially in southern California, are vastly different than they were 100 years ago. We know that biological consequences of global climate changes in the Pacific marine environment will be broad-reaching. Species ranges will expand or contract, depending on physiological tolerances and capacities to adapt to new conditions. Shifts in geographic ranges have proceeded more rapidly in marine vs. terrestrial systems, with a high potential for community-level changes.

Checklist of the Mosses Mosses are the second most speciose group of plants, after the enormously richer angiosperms. A Checklist of Mosses lists 12,800 recognized species in 901 genera, including 42 synonymous genera with species that have not been transferred to the accepted genus. Each listed species is qualified using a four-level ranking system that indicates our level of knowledge about the species. Redirecting JavaScript is disabled on your browser.

Abstract Utilization of seaweed as a feed supplement for animals is not a new phenomenon; in fact, it has been utilized by farmers as a valuable feed source for livestock and aquaculture for ages. This chapter addresses the worth of seaweed as a sustainable feed ingredient in diets of farm and aquatic animals. The chapter initially outlines the global feed market size and explains the importance of seaweed and its nutritional value according to animal nutrition requirements.

Safety of Novel Protein Sources (Insects, Microalgae, Seaweed, Duckweed, and Rapeseed) and Legislative Aspects for Their Application in Food and Feed Production - Spiegel - 2013 - Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety Introduction In response to the Kyoto Protocol on the global climate, the European Union (EU) made agreements on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Major sources of these gas emissions are cattle breeding and related meat consumption (Steinfeld and others 2006; Van Beukering and others 2008). Alltech – 2014 Global Feed Survey Summary – Animal Feed Market In the last days I had a look in to Alltech survey 2014 comparing with the same informations from 2013 report. During 2013 the first 20 countries produced 751,7 million tons of feed from a total of 954 million, respectively 78,8%. The total feed produced during 2014 was estimated by Alltech at 963 million tons and the top 20 produced “only” 749,6 million tons, 77,8% from the entire world feed production. The Alltech 2014 Global Feed Survey Summary is available in the follow link:
