The use of water resources is ineffective although Turkey has insufficient freshwater resources. Dry farming is practiced in a large part of agricultural land. This land due to insufficient precipitation throughout the country is left to fallow once in two years. Agricultural drought is becoming a severe challenge for agriculture and food security, and it may also impact the wealth of farmers by agriculture income. So, it causes widespread concern among the rural population. There is a close rel...

Urban ecological management in the context of big data space is an objective need for urban development. The ecological environment of a city is a comprehensive group of various ecological factors and ecological relationships that people in urban areas rely on for survival, development, and evolution. Geographic information is performed on the effective management of system technical means. Predictive decision-making and analysis can be made by processing urban spatial data, urban resources, and...

The complex structure of the abiotic factors in the Lesser Antilles leads to singular vegetation ranging from the dry to the humid. Geomorphology by means of the wide variety of topographic facets is the determining parameter which leads to gradients of mesological factors. Among the latter, both on the windward and leeward facades, the precipitation is distinguished by bioclimatic staging associated with plant stagings which consist of a mosaic of phytocenoses of variable sizes, ages, floristic...

The energy resources diversification has been increased with the energy crisis, in particular, the renewable energies and optimal management have become essential in the context of sustainable development. The conventional auto-thermal gasification processes burn part of the carbonaceous compound in order to supply the energy necessary to enhance gasification reactions. This energy could be provided as well by a nuclear reactor of IV generation. The nuclear heat is transferred from the VHTR to a...

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

This study analyzed influence of land cover changes and climatic variability from 1973 to 2000 on discharge regime of Njoro River Catchment in Kenya. Analysis focused on hydro-meteorological data of 1977-1984 (Period I) and 1992-2000 (Period II), which are the periods found with available data and Landsat imageries for the same periods. Results show a downward trend of annual discharge that corresponded to increased deforestation.

The cultivation of species in urban areas for landscaping or consumption has increased in cities surrounded by Cerrado, putting in risk the local flora. Thus, the objective of this paper was to describe seed germination and seedling emergence of five urban cultivated species of Melastomataceae and Bombacoideae and compare them with Cerrado native species to evaluate if they offer any risk to local vegetation. The seeds were collec

The data on receipt of photo synthetically active radiation (FAR) on the soil surface and the coefficient of its use over the years and periods of the year de-pending on the hydrothermal conditions and dynamics of harmful salts in the soil are given. The items of the changes in the species composition of phytoce-noses depending on the environmental factors are considered.
