African Humid Period - How Can Humans Help End It?

The major, extensive landscape change that took place on the African continent throughout the Holocene was brought on by the end of the African Humid Period (AHP). Most of northern Africa saw a big drop in rainfall, and plant and animal groups changed into new ecological niches, even though the changes happened at different times and in different places.

Reactions To Environmental Change Caused By Humans

Reactions To Environmental Change Caused By Humans

Understanding how animal populations react to human influences like climate change, overexploitation, the introduction of non-native species, and habitat degradation is the most significant task confronting biologists today. Although it is well recognized that environmental disturbance alters the quantity and distribution of species, populations also exhibit phenotypic reactions to environmental change, which often results in a loss of biodiversity.

Phosphorus - The Long-Term Use Of Phosphorus In Agriculture

Phosphorus - The Long-Term Use Of Phosphorus In Agriculture

Phosphate fertilizers will still be necessary on the majority of agricultural land throughout the world to satisfy plant demand and combat the conflicting actions of phosphorus (P) sorption and immobilization on soil mineral surfaces. How nutrients are used in agriculture determines how well crops grow and how much they produce, as well as how long crop production can continue.

Essential Oils - Their Formulations For The Control Of Curculionidae Pests

Essential Oils - Their Formulations For The Control Of Curculionidae Pests

Essential oils (EOs) have grown in popularity in recent years due to their easy availability in various plants, as well as their low toxicity for mammals and rapid degradation patterns. Curculionidae are herbivorous phytophagous coleopterans known as weevils. Some weevil species are destructive to agriculture, wreaking havoc on plantations and stored goods.

Synthetic Microbial Community (SynCom) - Its Effect In Sustainable Agriculture

Synthetic Microbial Community (SynCom) - Its Effect In Sustainable Agriculture

The synthetic microbial community (SynCom) approach is a new research field that combines a synthetic biology approach with knowledge generated from microbial community analysis, metagenomic approaches, and bioinformatic approaches that have become more accessible with the introduction of Next Generation Sequencing technologies. Understanding the dynamic interactions between microbial ecosystems can help engineers design microbial consortia with robust, stable, and predictable behavior.

Weed Management - Major Challenges In Agriculture

Weed Management - Major Challenges In Agriculture

Weeds are one of the most significant biotic restrictions to agricultural productivity in both developing and developed countries, making weed management a critical concern. Weeds, together with pathogens (fungi, bacteria, etc.) and animal pests (insects, rodents, nematodes, mites, birds, etc.), pose the greatest potential yield loss to crops.

Cyberbullying - Its Connection With Empathy In The Age Of Hyperconnection

Cyberbullying - Its Connection With Empathy In The Age Of Hyperconnection

We now have the responsibility to examine cyberbullying within a much wider societal framework since it represents a difficult frontier of inquiry in the social sciences. The necessity to find new interpretive categories through which to comprehend the complexity of the present is more apparent in the setting of current society.

Biodiversity - Underestimating Future Challenges

Biodiversity - Underestimating Future Challenges

Projected patterns in biodiversity loss, climate disruption, human consumption, and population expansion were detailed, showing that these issues would intensify in the following decades and have severe repercussions for millennia. The Earth's potential to sustain complex life is dwindling rapidly as a result of human activity. Despite the continuous disintegration of human civilization, the mainstream has trouble understanding this loss.

Abiotic Stress - Can Melatonin-Induced Protection Help Plants Recover From Abiotic Stress?

Abiotic Stress - Can Melatonin-Induced Protection Help Plants Recover From Abiotic Stress?

Due to their sessile nature, plants are increasingly vulnerable to abiotic stress. Their growth and productivity are impacted by abiotic stresses such as nutrient shortage, heavy metal stress, heat stress, salinity stress, and drought stress. These abiotic stresses disrupt plant physiological and metabolic development, causing reactive oxygen species (ROS), lipid peroxidation, osmolyte accumulation, and yield loss. Due to rapid climate change, the intensity of these abiotic stresses is rising, and appropriate action is needed.

Water Stress - How Does Plants Respond To Water Stress?

Water Stress - How Does Plants Respond To Water Stress?

Plant growth and productivity suffer from water stress. One of the main goals of plant breeding is to develop crops that can grow and survive with less water. Water use efficiency (WUE) is a selection trait that affects crop quality and productivity in times of water scarcity. Plants use molecular mechanisms to reduce resource use and regulate growth in harsh conditions.

Swimming - A Study Of The Differences In Swimming Speed For Breaststroke Swimmers

Swimming - A Study Of The Differences In Swimming Speed For Breaststroke Swimmers

Short course (25 m) and long course (50 m) pools are typically used for indoor swimming competitions. The increased number of turns and push offs causes a redistribution of muscular load, which can result in lower blood lactates and physiological recovery during the turn. Long courses require more turns than short courses, as the distance between turns increases.
