Farming Systems Facing Global Challenges:Capacities and Strategies. Volume 2.
Proceedings of the 11th European IFSA Symposium, 1-4 April 2014 in Berlin, Germany
IFSA Europe (www.ifsa-europe.org) is a platform for European Farming systems research. With the 11th European IFSA symposium we sought manifold answers that deal with challenges in an integrative, interconnected way on ...
Status of aquatic and riparian biodiversity in artificial lake ecosystems with and without management for recreational fisheries: Implications for conservation
1. Humanity is facing a biodiversity crisis, with freshwater-associated biodiversity in a particularly dire state. Novel ecosystems created through human use of mineral resources, such as gravel pit lakes, can provide ...
Pflanzenbauwissenschaften als interdisziplinäres Forschungsgebiet zwischen den Naturwissenschaften und Humanwissenschaften
Die Pflanzenbauwissenschaften haben als angewandte Disziplin die Aufgabe, in einer Brückenfunktion die Verbindung zwischen den Ergebnissen sowie den sich neu bietenden Chancen aus den Grundlagenwissenschaften und der Praxis ...
Shell development, growth and sexual dimorphism in the Recent thecideide brachiopod Thecidellina meyeri sp. nov. from the Lesser Antilles, Caribbean
A new thecideide brachiopod species, Thecidellina meyeri, is described from the southern Lesser Antilles (Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao), Caribbean Sea, with unique morphological characters which clearly separate it from all ...
Species–area relationships on small islands differ among plant growth forms
Aim: We tested whether species–area relationships of small islands differ among plant growth forms and whether this influences the prevalence of the small-island effect (SIE). The SIE states that species richness on small ...
Impacts devalue the potential of large-scale terrestrial CO2 removal through biomass plantations
Large-scale biomass plantations (BPs) are often considered a feasible and safe climate engineering proposal for extracting carbon from the atmosphere and, thereby, reducing global mean temperatures. However, the capacity ...
Periphyton in urban freshwater facilitates transformation of trace organic compounds: A case study on iodinated contrast media
Introduction: Due to urbanization and demographic change trace organic compounds (TrOCs), synthetic chemicals such as pharmaceuticals, personal care products or biocides are an increasing problem in waterbodies affected ...
