Abstract

With the current cost and price relations, the profitability of biorefineries is still challenged. It is suggested that the use of organic crops, such as clover grass, in biorefineries can increase the profitability because organic products can be sold at higher prices. Biorefining mainly produces...

Abstract

Rainfall prediction is an essential and challenging task in hydro-meteorology. Most of the existing weather dataset used for prediction consists of observatory record of several atmospheric parameters. Identifying the significant parameters from irrelevant and redundant parameter set for weather...

Abstract

Tree ring patterns provide one of the best records of pre-instrumental environmental and climate variability. To date, tree ring chronologies were explored from woody plant species with C3 photosynthetic pathway, only. For the first time, we have studied wood growth periodicity and stable carbon...

Abstract

A tropical tree-ring study is presented using 36 specimens of Cariniana estrellensis from the Mata Atlântica Biome within the State of São Paulo: Caetetus and Carlos Botelho. We aimed to assess the suitability of this species for chronology building, as well as for dendroclimatological studies,...

Abstract

Age and radial growth rate are key data on understanding some aspects of tropical forest dynamics and ecology. In species that produce annual tree rings, tree-ring analysis allows the most precise estimate of these two parameters. The present study assessed the age and radial growth rate of three ...

Abstract

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), all of Africa is very likely to warm up more than the global average during this century. Especially (semi-)arid regions are expected to experience particularly high warming and possibly catastrophic droughts. However, assessments...

Abstract

Global change has led to the warming of the atmosphere and oceans, the diminishment of snow and ice, while the sea level is rising. These changes have widespread impacts on human and natural systems on all continents and across the oceans. In tropical regions, ecosystems and socio-economic cultures ...

Abstract

This special issue includes 5 papers presenting modern research in the field of dendrochronology in the tropics and subtropics. Topics covered include: (1) the use of tropical tree species in dendroclimatology; (2) missing and false tree-rings in African Baobabs (Adansonia spp.) from Botswana; (3)...

Abstract

REDD+, a climate change mitigation mechanism that values carbon in tropical forests, is expected to provide Africa with a range of environmental and socio-economic benefits. Drawing on a vast array of literature and personal experiences, this review analyzed particular features and challenges that...

Abstract

Lately, water bodies have become one of the landscape features most valued by neoliberal urbanism in different parts of the world. The appropriation and production of water conditions exploited for the most exclusive real estate and tourism development, as well as the generation of unequal...
