  • Genomics
  • This study represents a first step in the development of a community resource for further study of plant-insect co-evolution, anti-herbivore defense, floral developmental genetics, reproductive biology, chemical evolution, population genetics, and comparative genomics using milkweeds, and A. syriaca in particular, as ecological and evolutionary models. (nih.gov)
  • Approaches in my lab use tools not only from physiological and behavioral ecology, but also from Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing, evolutionary programming and individual based modeling, statistics, and (recently) ecological genomics. (clemson.edu)
  • metabolic processes
  • Metaproteomics showed a high and even distribution of proteins involved in primary metabolic processes such as energy production and biosynthetic pathways, and a limited but remarkable presence of proteins related to resistance to environmental stressors such as radiation, oxidation, or desiccation. (frontiersin.org)
  • Rather, it would be more critical to evaluate metabolic processes or monitor gene products that are implicated in the specific activity of interest. (springer.com)
  • Microbial
  • Ethanol was injected intermittently as an electron donor to stimulate microbial U(VI) reduction, and U(VI) concentrations fell to below the Environmental Protection Agency drinking water standard (0.03 mg liter −1 ). (asm.org)
  • 2006). Work with pure cultures and microbial enrichments also led to the elucidation of the biochemistry of anaerobic aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbon degradation and the identification of central metabolites and genes involved in the process, e.g. (springer.com)
  • 2000). This information could then be extrapolated to the environment to monitor degradation processes and determine if in situ microbial populations possessed the potential for contaminant bioremediation, e.g. (springer.com)
  • 2004), we are only at the early stages of understanding the microbial processes that occur in petroliferous formations and the surrounding subterranean environment. (springer.com)
  • ecosystem
  • Our goal is to facilitate and devise ecosystem-based designs of environmental and water resources infrastructure for achieving sustainability at variable time and space scales under the changing climate, population, land use/cover, and socio-economic stress scenarios. (google.com)
  • Salinity
  • In conclusion, salinity stress improved the medicinal quality of honeysuckle by promoting accumulation of chlorogenic acids, however, the mechanisms underlying this process were not consistent in flower buds and leaves. (frontiersin.org)
  • regulation
  • This paper discusses the success of ERA as a process for linking environmental science to decision making, using 3 recently published case studies involving establishment of baseline ecological risks at a contaminated site, probabilistic assessment of regional risks of pesticide use, and regulation of pharmaceutical product manufacture.

  • Fauna
  • Thus, we predict that future environmental change will modify carrion fauna composition and thereby indirectly decomposition rate. (springer.com)

  • Results from this type of experiment are useful in risk assessment models to predict future risk to humans and wildlife eating contaminated fish under various scenarios of environmental contamination. (jove.com)
  • important
  • Hence, it would seem that entropy can serve as an important concept to characterize the organization of the unique thermodynamic states of life and Earth's habitable environments and to understand the driving processes that result in these unique states. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • Increases in size limits are predicted to enhance fishery yield and may also have important ecological consequences for the predatory role of sheephead in kelp forests. (jove.com)
  • unique
  • The largest ice-free region in Antarctica is the McMurdo Dry Valleys (hereafter referred to as Dry Valleys) and these are designated by international treaty as an Antarctic Special Managed Area to reflect their unique ecological status ( SCAR, 2004 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • production
  • Such modifications require a significant reorganization of the production process at farm level, and when facing technical or socioeconomic constraints, most farmers usually opt for applying only partially the three main principles of conservation agriculture. (springer.com)
  • The proposed principle of maximum entropy production (MEP), based on statistical mechanics and information theory, states that thermodynamic processes far from thermodynamic equilibrium will adapt to steady states at which they dissipate energy and produce entropy at the maximum possible rate.
