Micronutrient Contents of Heritiera fomes Species at Three Saline Zones of the Sundarban Mangrove Forest, Bangladesh

Hasina Mariam, A. N. M. Alamgir
Micronutrient or essential heavy metals viz. Copper (Cu), Zinc (Zn) and Iron (Fe) distribution trend were studied at the age of 6, 9 and 30 months old Heritiera fomes seedlings at three distinct saline zones viz. Chandpai (Oligohaline), Jungra (Mesohaline) and Munshiganj (Polyhaline) of the Sundarban mangrove forest. Among the observed micronutrients, Fe content comparatively lower than Cu and Zn. Relatively higher Cu was found in the root of 6 month age Heritiera fomes seedlings grown at the Ch...

Assessing the Floristic Biodiversity and Carbon Stock in a Republic of Congo’s Forest Ecosystem

Donatien Nzala, Romeo Ekoungoulou, Bernadin Y. Ngoumba
Reforestation management goes through the knowledge of the tired out evolution after a forestry rest. The aim of this study was to assess biodi-versity concerning Terminalia superba Engl. & Diels and its undergrowth, and then quantify sequestered carbon stocks to appreciate the impact of reforestation on forest recovery and the enhancement of carbon stocks. The study was conducted at Bilala artificial forest in southeastern Re

Classification, Characterization and Comparison of Aquatic Ecosystems in the Landscape of Adilabad District, Telangana, Deccan Region, India

Medagam Thirupathi Reddy, Natarajan Sivaraj, Venkateswaran Kamala, Someswara Rao Pandravada, Neelam Sunil, Nilamani Dikshit
A landscape is a mosaic of natural and/or artificial communities and wa-terbodies and may contain several distinct ecosystems. Human life depends on many services delivered by the water-based aquatic and land-based terrestrial ecosystems. A wide variety of aquatic ecosystems exist and alt-hough they represent a low percentage of the Earth’s surface, their roles and functions make them crucial. Aquatic ecosystems especia

Detection of Horizontal Transfer of Housekeeping and Hydrocarbons Catabolism Genes in Bacterial Genus with Potential to Application in Bioremediation Process

Edmo Montes Rodrigues, Fernanda de Souza Freitas, Tatiane de Paula Siqueira
In silico analysis can be useful to infer about the horizontal gene transfer (HGT) as well as to deduce about the evolutionary relations of catabolic genes. In this study, we performed the analysis of two housekeeping genes (fabD and rpoD) and two catabolic gene

Assessing the Socioecological Perspectives of Eucalyptus Cultivation and Plantation Expansion in Laos

Xayphanya Chanthalath, Liu Yong, Mukete Beckline, Southdavone Inthilath
In Laos, the cultivation of fast growing trees as eucalypts has been promoted due to a rapid decline in natural forest cover. However, this expansion of fast growing trees might not end in a win-win situation for both humans and the environment. This paper examines the social and ecological potentials of Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus

Ecological-Geobotanical Monitoring of Forest Use (Some Methodological Aspects)

Alexander Sizykh, Alexey Shekhovtsov
Setting of forms and methods for forest use must be based on assessment and forecast characteristics of forests modern state taking into account probable trends of their formation (or reconstitution) on the base of the analysis of modern physical-geographic conditions on a concrete territory. A very efficient method for this can be an ecological mapping monitoring of forest use with outlining of a series of ecological-geobotanic m

Some Notes on the Regeneration of Coral Reef Ecosystems

Yuri Ya. Latypov
The current research is on fossil and recent coral reef ecosystem by traced processes of recovery after damage of different species. Examples of regeneration of artificially planted fragments of various species of scleractinian and reconstruction of part of the ecosystem of the reef are presented. Particular attention is drawn to the possibility of regeneration after typhoons and anthropogenic impacts.

Facilitating the Automatic Characterisation, Classification and Description of Biological Images with the VisionBioShape Package for R

Biel Stela, Antonio Monleón-Getino
Here, we present the VisioBioshapeR package for R [R Core, 2014]. This new library is a comprehensive, multifunctional toolbox designed to automatically analyse biological images. The package extends other common libraries (Momocs, ShapeR) used for biological shape analysis by allowing the user to extract closed contour outlines automatically from reading binary images. Current functionalities of VisioBioshapeR include: random ext

Features of Formation of Structureless Reefs near the Mainland and Island Coast of Vietnam

Yuri Ya. Latypov
We study structureless reefs of the mainland and island coastlines of Vietnam. It is shown that this type of reefs has stable species composition and community structure, like in similar bionomic zones in conventional reefs. They are characterized by high species diversity, including more than a third of all reef-building scleractinian of the Pacific. Non-structural reefs are characterized by the same trophic relations of the inner and outer parts of the reef, from the standpoint of a clear sche...
