Arts and Culture in Urban or Regional Planning: A Review and Research Agenda Amid the buzz on the creative city and cultural economy, knowledge about what works at various urban and regional scales is sorely lacking. This article reviews the state of knowledge about arts and culture as an urban or regional development tool, exploring […]

Extinction of Home Elephant in Eco-Tourism, Daklak Province

The goal of this study is to save domestic elephants in the Central Highlands, which are on the verge of extinction. Field study with interviews, field observations with a large number of samples (n>30), and the number of repeats of the survey sample (>3) were used as research methodologies. 1 – Domestic elephants contribute significantly […]

AMMI Automatic Mangrove Map and Index: An Analytical Study on Satellite Imageries at Aru Islands, Maluku, Indonesia

The spectral reflectance features in several vegetation indices have been used to generate mapping on mangroves utilising satellite imageries. Hundreds of scientific articles have used and implemented vegetation indices in mangrove research, however the majority still employ the manual digitization method. Satellite imaging is useful for reducing impediments in inaccessible stations caused by mangrove root […]

Assessment of Normalized Rainfall Index and Vulnerability of Sugarcane Production to Climate Change in Mumias Zone, Kenya

In Kenya, sugarcane is a significant economic crop. Over 8 million Kenyans are directly and indirectly supported by the sugar business, which provides income to over 294,000 small-scale growers and 7,500 employees. Rainfed sugarcane agriculture is the norm in Kenya, and climate change is expected to have an impact on productivity. The Normalized Rainfall Index […]

Application of Modified Clay Mineral Waste Material for Removal of Phosphorus from Aquatic System

Phosphorus (P) is one of the most important components that contributes to eutrophication in aquatic systems. The application of modified clay mineral waste material (MCMWM) for the removal of P from aquatic systems, including surface water and wastewater, was investigated in this work. At pH values of 3, 5, 6, 7, and 9, with P […]

Status of Mangroves in the Coastal Environment Changes: A Case Study after the Nias Earthquake, March 2005

Sixteen years ago, on December 26, 2004, a 9.3 magnitude earthquake struck the Andaman Islands, followed by tsunamis in the Aceh region, resulting in massive losses of human life in Indonesia’s coastal areas and neighbouring countries. Hundreds of hectares of coral reef ecosystem were hoisted into the ground after an 8.7 Mw earthquake struck Nias […]

Valorization of Dairy Sludge in Water Treatment: Assessment of Biosorption of an Industrial Dye (A-BG)

Today, pollution control is a top priority. Industrial wastewater, particularly that from the textile and paper sectors, can contain a wide range of organic micro contaminants, including dyes. The environment is seriously harmed by the lack of treatment of these fluids. It is preferable to treat this water before it is discharged in order to […]

Estimation of the Wild Boar Population in Southern Italian Apennines by Pellet Count Group Technic: A Preliminary Study

Today, the evolution of wild ungulates is one of the most significant developments in Italian wildlife over the previous few decades. Damage caused by wild boars has increased substantially in recent decades, amounting to hundreds of thousands of Euros annually in various European nations. Knowing the location, abundance, and population dynamics of wild boar (Sus […]

Effect of Real Time Rainfall Pattern on Yield and Yield Attributing Parameters of Toria (Brassica campestris) in an Inceptisols of Assam, India

“Effect of Real Time Rainfall Pattern on Yield and Yield Attributing Parameters of Toria (Brassica campestris) in an Inceptisols of Assam, India” was studied in the experimental field of AICRP for Dryland Agriculture, Biswanath college of Agriculture, Assam Agricultural University, Biswanath chariali, Assam during the rabi seasons of 2018-19 and 2019-20 under AICRPDA, Factor 1: […]

Removal of Lead and Cadmium in Synthetic Wastewater Using Phaseolus vulgaris (Beans) Husk as Bio-adsorbent: Experimental Investigation

Due to their efficacy when compared to existing and expensive traditional technologies like ion exchange and membrane technology, the use of low-cost bio-adsorbents to remove heavy metals from wastewater and drinking water is quickly receiving study attention. A range of agricultural wastes have lately been subjected to this bio-sorption technology. In this study, the husk […]
