This paper explores the effects of climate change on dairy production in Botswana and mitigation strategies are suggested. Dairy farming has not experienced growth over time rendering the country heavily dependent on milk imports. National dairy herd is estimated to be approximately 5000 and per...
Mercury is a xenobiotic contaminant often found in natural ecosystems. It is relevant for public and environmental health because of the existing correlation between its content in water sources and mercury bioaccumulation in living organisms. This work assessed the immune and histopathological...
Concentration of heavy metals in Scardinius erythrophthalmus (L., 1758) found in Biosphere Reserve "Srebarna" (Northeastern Bulgaria) was examined in 25 fish individuals from every age group and season. The concentration of heavy metals was investigated by mineralization and subsequent atomic...
