Abstract

Theoretical lessons for increasing algal biofuel: evolution of oil accumulation to avert carbon starvation in microalgae.

Microalgae-derived oil is considered as a feasible alternative to fossil-derived oil. To produce more algal biomass, both algal population size and oil accumulation in algae must be maximized. Most of the previous studies have concentrated on only one of these issues, and relatively little...

Energy self-sufficient sustainable integrated farming systems for livelihood security under a changing climate scenario in an Indian context: a case-study approach.

The farming systems of the world have to meet multiple demands, e.g. supporting livelihood, conserving biodiversity, off-setting emissions and adapting to climate change. As a traditional way of farming in India, an integrated farming system (IFS) represents multiple crops (cereals, legumes, tree...

AbstractFull Text

Effects of petroleum hydrocarbon levels on morphological and physiological characteristics of two bermudagrass species.

Petroleum hydrocarbons (PHs) are one of the most important soil contaminants. Presence of these compounds in soil may cause some stresses to plants and make the growth conditions unfavorable. Thus, for landscaping in the contaminated areas, tolerant plants to these stresses are needed. The aim of...

Energy value and combustion rate of Parkia biglobosa (Jacq.) R.Br. ex G.Don.

Fresh wood sample of Parkia biglobosa (Jacq.) R.Br. ex G.Don was taken from Buskuri open forest and tested for moisture content, calorific value, combustion rate and its coppicing ability measured. The study shows that the moisture content at the time of energy determination was found to be 6.04...

The effect of zeolite, bentonite and sepiolite minerals on heavy metal uptake by sunflower.

Mining, industrial and agricultural activities can result in considerable soil pollution by heavy metals (HMs). One of the methods to control this pollution is application of adsorbent minerals. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of adsorbent minerals (bentonite, zeolite and...
