Abstract

Freshwater algal diversity of the South-Tajik Depression in a high-mountainous extreme environment, Tajikistan.

The research on algal communities' response to altitude and altitude-related climatic conditions is sparse. So far, a full, accessible list of algae from the water bodies of the South-Tajik Depression has not been available. We compiled an algal species list of 1190 taxa that were revealed by us or...

Urban dust load impact on gas-exchange parameters and growth of Sophora japonica L. seedlings.

Green space interacts with particulate matters (PM) from urban atmosphere and road dust is a main source of urban PM pollution. We designed a dusting experiment of 21 days to examine the variations of pigments, gas exchange, height increments, and biomass of Sophora japonica seedlings (the most...

AbstractFull Text

Biochar immobilizes cadmium and zinc and improves phytoextraction potential of willow plants on extremely contaminated soil.

The availability of risk elements in soil can be possibly reduced by various soil additives. Among them, the attention has been recently focused on the research of unconventional soil additive - biochar. The aim of this study was (i) to observe the effect of biochar application on risk elements...

AbstractFull Text

Environmental sustainability and climate benefits of green technology for bioethanol production in Thailand.

Biofuels are often presented as an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels; however, empirical analysis that is widely reported in the literature shows that biofuel production can have negative environmental and social impacts. The potential for these negative impacts can be avoided...

AbstractFull Text

Investigation physiological characteristics of Ricinus communis (L.) and Brassica juncea (L.) in cadmium contaminated soil.

We have previously reported that Ricinus communis (castor) is more tolerant to soil cadmium (Cd) and more efficient for Cd phytoremediation than Brassica juncea (Indian mustard). This experiment was performed to Investigation physialogical and biochemical characteristics of Ricinus Communis (L.)...
