This study describes the use of landscape transition analysis as a means for effective basin management. Land cover transitions from 1995 to 2002 were analyzed using a cross-tabulation matrix for an important economic zone in south-west Victoria, Australia. Specifically, the matrix was used to...
Naturalized populations of wild sunflower, Helianthus annnus , occur in six provinces of central Argentina, usually near sunflower crops. Plants of intermediate morphology indicate that gene flow might take place in both senses. In order to quantify gene flow between cultivated and wild...
Elevated atmospheric CO 2 has generally been found to have negative impacts on the performance of insect herbivores via negative effects on plant quality. Yet, reduced food quality may lead to an increase in crop damage when pests compensate by consuming more plant tissue. The flow-on effects of...
Environmentally effective and economically efficient strategies and measures to reduce GHG emissions from agricultural systems could significantly contribute to GHG emission abatement. As a case study we therefore estimate the possible environmental and economic impacts of different mitigation...
Soil organic carbon (SOC) is a biophysical parameter, which is also directly linked to above ground land use and land cover (LULC). Currently changes in LULC and variations in SOC often are studied and modeled separately. However, both are conjoined and should be seen as part of a cascading...
The Yucatan Peninsula hosts part of Central America's largest remaining tract of tropical dry forest and has been identified as a region of critical landscape change. This study complements the extensive research on land cover conversion in the region by investigating a subtle but important...
When a pesticide is applied a proportion of the sprayed solution may become a cause of pollution in the surrounding environment, with ecotoxicological implications and phytotoxicity to other crops. In many countries buffer zones along field edges are recommended to shield surface waters, and...
The aim of the study was to investigate how plant species’ composition, soil parameters and nutrient concentrations in plant biomass differ between fertilized and control plots 62 years after the last fertilizer application on a sub-alpine grassland. A piece of land called the Grass Garden...
