Selenium and Nano-Selenium in Environmental Stress Management and Crop Quality Improvement

Selenium and Nano-Selenium in Environmental Stress Management and Crop Quality Improvement by Mohammad Anwar Hossain, Golam Jalal Ahammed, Zsuzsanna Kolbert, Hassan El-Ramady, Md. Tofazzal Islam, Michela Schiavon
English | EPUB | 2022 | 467 Pages | ISBN : 3031070623 | 23.5 MB

Crop plants growing under field conditions are constantly exposed to various abiotic and biotic stress factors leading to decreased yield and quality of produce. In order to achieve sustainable development in agriculture and to increase agricultural production for feeding an increasing global population, it is necessary to use ecologically compatible and environmentally friendly strategies to decrease the adverse effects of stresses on the plant. Selenium is one of the critical elements from the biological contexts because it is essential for human health; however, it becomes toxic at high concentrations. It has been widely reported that selenium can promote plant growth and alleviate various stresses as well as increase the quantity and quality of the yield of many plant species.

Strategic Facilitation of Complex Decision-Making: How Process and Context Matter in Global Climate Change Negotiations by Ariel Macaspac Hernández
English | PDF | 2014 | 268 Pages | ISBN : 3319061968 | 3 MB

This book provides theoretical and practical insights for effective decision making in situations that involve various types of conflict cleavages. Embedding historical analysis, negotiation analysis, political scientific analysis and game theoretical analysis in an integrated analytical framework allows a comprehensive perspective on various dilemmas and self-enforcing dynamics that inhibit decision making. The conceptualization of strategic facilitation highlights the value of leadership, chairmanship and the role of threshold states in facilitating decision making as the global climate change negotiations unfolds.

Towards Sustainable Natural Resources: Monitoring and Managing Ecosystem Biodiversity by Meenu Rani, Bhagwan Singh Chaudhary, Saleha Jamal, Pavan Kumar
English | PDF,EPUB | 2022 | 347 Pages | ISBN : 3031064429 | 75.4 MB

Natural resources not only contribute to overall growth of the economy but also help reduce poverty by providing employment and food security to populations on the continent, and is thus the most inclusive growth sector of the economy of Asian countries. Global weather and climate studies are also increasingly being considered a vital source of information to understand the earth’s environment, in particular in the framework of weather and climate studies, land use transformation and human influence across these areas. Satellite earth observing systems provide a unique tool to monitor these changes.

Ecological Stylistics: Ecostylistic Approaches to Discourses of Nature, the Environment and Sustainability by Daniela Francesca Virdis
English | PDF,EPUB | 2022 | 260 Pages | ISBN : 3031106571 | 8.9 MB

“This book introduces a new dimension into the study of language and ecology. Instead of criticizing the use of language about the ‘environment’, as is done in Ecolinguistics, Virdis’s book on Ecostylistics shows the positive side of language about Nature. The way the author displays how ‘beneficial discourse’ (including beneficial metaphor) describes Nature is fascinating. Her definition and evaluation of five ‘marker words’ by using five relevant texts is an outstanding feature of the book.”
