Folkscanomy: A Library of Books

Folksonomy: A system of classification derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content; this practice is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging. Coined by Thomas Vander Wal, it is a portmanteau of folk and taxonomy.

Folkscanomy: A collection of books and text derived from the efforts of volunteers to make information as widely available as possible. Because the metadata related to these scanned books are often done outside the library or cataloging industries, finding material can be more difficult. The Folkscanomy collection attempts to add a layer of classification for easier navigation.

The rare earth elements (REEs) were classified as critical raw materials for Europe for their economic relevance and the supply risk. Currently, most of REE production is concentrated in the Chinese area and it is used for the production of many technologies including: fluorescent lamps, fluid catalytic cracking catalysts and permanent magnets. At the end of their life, these products can cause management problems, mainly due to the hazardous component presence. Nevertheless, this critical...

Vegetation open fires constitute a significant source of particulate pollutants on a global scale and play an important role in both atmospheric chemistry and climate change. To better understand the emission and aging characteristics of smoke aerosols, we performed small-scale fire experiments using the Large Aerosol Chamber (LAC, 1800 m3) with a focus on biomass burning from Siberian boreal coniferous forests. A series of burn experiments were conducted with typical Siberian biomass (pine and...

Climate change has been shown to shift the seasonal timing (i.e. phenology) and distribution of species. The phenological effects of climate change on living organisms have often been tested using first occurrence dates, which may be uninformative and biased. More rarely investigated is how different phases of a phenological sequence (e.g. beginning, central tendency and end) or its duration have changed over time. This type of analysis requires continuous observation throughout the...

Sea levels are projected to rise in response to climate change, causing the intrusion of sea water into land. In flat coastal regions, this would generate an increase in shallow water covered areas with limited circulation. This scenario raises a concern about the consequences it could have on human health, specifically the possible impacts on disease transmission. In this review paper we identified three categories of diseases which are associated with water and whose transmission can be...

Triclosan (TCS) is a synthetic microbial compound widely used in the formulation of various personal care products. Its frequent detection in marine ecosystems, along with its physical and chemical properties, suggest that TCS can be highly persistent, being easily bioaccumulated by biota and, therefore, eliciting various toxicological responses. Yet, TCS's mechanisms of bioaccumulation and toxicity still deserve further research, particularly focusing on the interactive effects with climate...

The carbon (C) sequestration potential of croplands has recently become a subject of debate because it may contribute significantly to global climate change mitigation. By contrast, carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions from German croplands have continuously increased over the past decades as a result of soil organic carbon (SOC) losses. Contrasting results, however, have been obtained on the C sink or source function of European croplands based on long-term experiments and rather recent eddy...

In the face of climate change, populations have two survival options − they can remain in situ and tolerate the new climatic conditions (“stay”), or they can move to track their climatic niches (“go”). For sessile and small-stature organisms like alpine plants, staying requires broad climatic tolerances, realized niche shifts due to changing biotic interactions, acclimation through plasticity, or rapid genetic adaptation. Going, in contrast, requires good dispersal and colonization...

Sustainable development challenges are increasingly concentrated in urban areas. In the European Union (EU), cities are expanding their urban green infrastructure (UGI)to reduce the effects of climate change and enhance resilience and sustainability. However, there exist few articles showing local case studies in intermediate cities of Europe. The aim of this study is to analyse the climate change mitigation potential of a set of urban forests and agriculture actions implemented within the EU...

Recent climate projections predict an amplification of global warming and more frequent extreme events such as heat waves. Therefore, the adaptation of cities to counterbalance these adverse changes is urgent. Among available adaptation strategies, urban greening is a measure that is frequently encouraged to improve thermal comfort or energy demand, but whose impacts are not well known at the scale of cities. In this study we evaluate the effects of various urban greening scenarios based on...

In the context of climate change, the interest for sustainable sources to produce energy is growing. One promising resource for biofuel production is microalgae, but their industrial use is limited by the lack of efficient harvesting techniques. In this study, we use a multi-scale approach to understand the magnesium hydroxide-mediated flocculation/flotation mechanism of Phaeodactylum tricornutum, an effective oil-producer diatom, under high pH. While flotation experiments give a...

Assessment of temperature sensitivity of soil organic carbon (SOC) mineralization from soils of long-term precision conservation agriculture (CA) plots is essential to forecast soil C dynamics. Under CA, varying quantity of inorganic nutrient application had differential impact on SOC. At the same time study of SOC mineralization at different simulated temperatures is important as global climate change affects C-cycle of an agro-ecosystem. To assess the impact of tillage and nutrient management...

The plant microbiome, composed of diverse interacting microorganisms, is thought to undergird host integrity and well-being. Though it is well understood that environmental perturbations like oil pollution can alter the diversity and composition of microbiomes, remarkably little is known about how disturbance alters plant-fungal associations. Using Next-Generation sequencing of the 18S rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS1) region, we examined outcomes of enduring oil exposure on aboveground...

The building sector is a major driver of climate change, and the increased focus on significantly reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in recent years calls for major initiatives in the way we plan, build and operate buildings and neighbourhoods. Life-cycle assessment (LCA) is a commonly used and well-established tool to estimate the total emissions caused by buildings throughout their entire life cycle. Yet, LCAs of more complex systems such as neighbourhoods are scarce. We have developed...

Climate scenarios in the Mediterranean region predicts raising temperatures and more frequent and extreme drought conditions. Cork oak is a Mediterranean species with a large distribution in Portugal from which cork is extracted in a sustainable way and mainly used as the raw material for cork stoppers and insulating materials. To study the response of cork oak to drought and the effect of phellogen age on that response we examined cork growth from a 30-year chronology of trees from 12 sites in...

Use of lean or ultra-lean air-fuel ratios is an efficient and proven strategy to reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. Previous works indicate that lean burn mixtures improves engine thermal efficiency by improving combustion quality, reducing heat transfer losses and increasing the possibility of apply higher compression ratios. However, lower fuel concentration in cylinder hinders mixture ignition, requiring greater energy to start combustion. To favor the ignition process, several...

The threat of global warming has driven recent efforts of estimating upper thermal limits of ectothermic species all over the world. The investigation of thermal limits is crucial for the understanding of climate change ecology, since it provides insight into how climate will shape future species distributions. This work estimated the Critical Thermal Maxima (CTMax) of 42 coastal species (Gastropoda, Crustacea, Teleostei, Echinodermata and Cnidaria) in a tropical and a temperate area. The...

Climate change models predict an important decrease in precipitation in some parts of the world, which will lead to a decrease in river plume magnitude. River plumes can have an important enhancing effect on coastal secondary production and sustain important fisheries. Studies using stable isotopes have been proven successful in characterizing the energy pathways that sustain coastal fisheries and their dependence on terrestrial matter inputs. This has been shown in subtidal coastal waters...

To evaluate the mitigation potential provided by the SOC pool, we investigated the impact of woody encroachment in the 0–30 cm depth of mineral soil across a natural succession from abandoned pastures and croplands to broadleaves forests on the central Apennine in Italy. In parallel, to assess the effect of the land use change (LUC) from cropland to pasture, a series of pastures established on former agricultural sites, abandoned at different time in the past, were also investigated. Our...

Climate change is accompanied by shifts in species distributions, as portions of current ranges become less suitable. Maintaining or improving landscape connectivity to facilitate species movements is a primary approach to mitigate the effects of climate change on biodiversity. However, it is not clear how ongoing changes in land use and climate may affect the existing connectivity of landscapes. We evaluated shifts in habitat suitability and connectivity for the imperiled Blanding's turtle...

Plant response to imposition of biotic and abiotic stresses by inducing their defense mechanisms, with the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) representing a major defense response. The present work examined the simultaneous impact of two key stress factors, drought and spider mite attack (Tetranychus urticae) in Medicago truncatula plants. Hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ), lipid peroxidation (MDA content) and proline content in well-watered and drought-stressed leaves infested by spider...

Crop models are important tools for assessing the impact of climate change on crop production. While multiple models have been developed over the past decades for the major food and fiber crops such as wheat, maize, soybean, rice, and cotton, there are few or none for many other crops. The goal of this study was to develop a simple generic crop model (SIMPLE) that could be easily modified for any crop to simulate development, crop growth and yield. The crop model SIMPLE includes 13 parameters...

Human disturbance and climate change both influence the input quantity of plant litter, significantly affecting soil respiration (R s ). However, what leads to a change of relationship between R s in on-litter input (R s (NL)) and natural litter input (R s (CL)) is not yet fully understood. This study selected a man-made Populus forest in a dune-meadow transitional region to observe R s (NL) and R s (CL), soil temperature and soil moisture at a depth of 0–10 cm, groundwater depth between...

Although facies and stratal geometries of continental margin successions can be defined in detail based on subsurface and outcrop studies, most studies lack the high-resolution age control needed to constrain the time scale of formation of such successions and infer their external forcing mechanisms. Our work on the Po River Lowstand Wedge (PRLW) indicates that deposition rates are surprisingly high with the entire 350-m-thick succession being deposited in less than 17,000 years, and with...

The mid-20th century changes in North Atlantic Ocean dynamics, e.g. slow-down of the Atlantic meridional overturning thermohaline circulation (AMOC), have been considered as early signs of tipping points in the Earth climate system. We hypothesized that these changes have significantly altered boreal forest growth dynamics in northeastern North America (NA) and northern Europe (NE), two areas geographically adjacent to the North Atlantic Ocean. To test our hypothesis, we investigated tree...
