Nitrous oxide, climate change and agriculture.

Nitrous oxide is an important greenhouse gas with a global warming potential of 298 times that of carbon dioxide. It is also responsible for the destruction of stratospheric ozone. Concentrations of nitrous oxide have shown continuous growth in the atmosphere over the past century, and nitrogen (N)...

Biological characteristics of Spodoptera eridania (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) at different temperatures.

Climate changes may impact the distribution and intensity of pests outbreaks through direct effects on their life cycles. In this context, it is extremely important to understand the biology of pests in different temperatures. Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the impact of different temperatures...
