Abstract

The geography of large-scale land acquisitions: analysing socio-ecological patterns of target contexts in the global south.

This paper analyses local geographical contexts targeted by transnational large-scale land acquisitions (>200 ha per deal) in order to understand how emerging patterns of socio-ecological characteristics can be related to processes of large-scale foreign investment in land. Using a sample of 139...

AbstractFull Text

Genetic diversity of Onobrychis sativa populations using seed storage proteins and its association with ecological factors.

Onobrychis sativa is a very important legume used as forage in Iran. However, improvement of O. sativa is slow and time consuming, being made essentially by introduction of the foreign genetic material. This study evaluated seed protein profiles of 110 genotypes of O. sativa from 11 populations, to...
