  • Temperature distribution and the cooling effects on three urban parks in Ankara, Turkey

    In this study, the effects of urban parks on temperature were investigated in the case of three urban parks (Altınpark, Gençlik Park and Kurtuluş Park) of different sizes and supporting different plant densities and distributions in urban areas of Ankara City, Turkey. Local microscale temperature changes caused by green areas within park boundaries and park vicinities exhibited differences ...

  • Grow to Order and Seed Collection

    Local provenance planting is important to help restore our natural habitats and retain the genetic integrity of plant populations and is strongly recommended for projects within or near environmentally sensitive areas. Forward planning is essential when undertaking local provenance seed collection as there are seasonal constraints such as seed maturation time, finding seed donor sites and gaining ...

  • Nutrient status in Alpine soils of the Colorado front range using the Nitrogen/Phosphorus ratio index

    The suitability of the foliar N/P ratio was evaluated as a predictor of nutrient limitation in an alpine ecosystem of the Colorado Front Range. We hypothesized that foliar N/P ratios are directly correlated with the alpine soil nutrient status. We used a long-term fertilization experiment conducted in three alpine plant communities, where 48 plots were established consisting of four replicates of ...

  • Planting field-scale research plots with the aid of gps-enabled assisted steering

    Field-scale research imposes logistical challenges to planting randomized treatment plots, even for simply designed field experiments. Planter row markers offer minimal assistance when planting randomly located strips of a treatment across a field. Accurately flagging or otherwise marking treatment plots before planting to facilitate accurate planting of the same requires time and labor during a ...

  • Working protocol for isolation and identification of bioactive compounds from aqueous extract of medicinal plants

    Considerable efforts have been directed towards the isolation and identification of compounds from medicinal plants, which are most likely to be responsible for the reported bioactivities. This article aimed to illustrate rationale steps involved to characterise chemical constituents and biological activities of aqueous extract of Medicinal Plant Materials (MPM). The elected, sequenced, optimised ...

  • The dissemination of genetically modified organisms in Brazil

    Authorised for commercialisation in the USA since 1994, Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) were quickly disseminated in this country as well as in Canada, Mexico and Argentina. However, Brazil has remained outside of this process of diffusion. The objective of this article is to analyse the factors that limit the diffusion process of GMOs in Brazil. The article emphasises the polarisation of ...
