Abstract

Agricultural development is inevitable to meet the growing need for food. But along with this development, there are unintended and undesirable consequences for human life and the environment that need, found a solution and corrected. One of the most important adverse consequences of agricultural...

Abstract

Watershed assessment and developmental strategy demands precise measurement of the past and present land use parameters. Failure of Shiroro dam in 1999 and 2004 was attributes to upstream soil erosion. Hence, the study of land use change within the corridors of the reservoir for proper...

Abstract

Human-driven peatland drainage has occurred in Europe for centuries, causing habitat degradation and leading to the emission of greenhouse gases. As such, in the last decades, there has been an increase in policies aiming at restoring these habitats through rewetting. Alder (Alnus glutinosa L.) is...

Abstract

Louisiana, located in the southeast United States, is home to 40% of the continental US's coastal wetlands yet accounts for 80% of the nation's coastal wetland loss. This loss is generally attributed to decreased sediment supply, hydrologic alteration from levees, channelization, subsidence,...

Abstract

Climate change is now recognized as a reality and along with human pressures such as river fragmentation by dams, amplifies the threats to freshwater ecosystems and their biodiversity. In the Brazilian portion of the Upper Paraguay River Basin (UPRB) that encompasses the Pantanal, one of the...

AbstractFull Text

Sea level rise (SLR) has a significant impact on the ecosystem services in coastal wetlands. Taking the Liaohe Delta as an example, the SLAMM (Sea Level Rise Affecting Marsh Model) was used to simulate the medium-term (2010-2050) and the long-term (2010-2100) of the spatiotemporal changes of land...

Abstract

Climate change is transforming ecosystems and affecting ecosystem goods and services. Along the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coasts of the southeastern United States, the frequency and intensity of extreme freeze events greatly influence whether coastal wetlands are dominated by freeze-sensitive...

Abstract

Wetlands play an important role in biodiversity protection and ecosystem services provision but are susceptible to continuous degradation from the urban environment. In this study, objectives have been made to evaluate the spatial and seasonal (dry and wet periods) variations of diffusive fluxes of ...

Abstract

In September 2018 Hurricane Florence had severe impacts on the lower Neuse River and Neuse estuary, North Carolina, despite the fact that it was a minor storm in terms of traditional indicators of storm intensity. The storm was consistent with recent trends and predictions of tropical cyclone...

Abstract

Nature-based coastal defense using bivalve reefs provides a potentially self-sustaining approach for regions facing high coastal land loss, relative sea level rise and increasing frequency and intensity of storms. Success of such nature-based coastal defense depends on the reef-building species'...
