  • Integrative environmental research and education

    This paper is based on the premise that without integration of knowledge across disciplines, without integration of research with education, and without dialogue between science and stakeholders, opportunities to bound the complexity of environmental processes will be missed. Without adequate integration, solutions to environmental challenges will be partial at best, and new problems and ...

  • Environmental Sensing and Monitoring Market Global Research 2018

    Environmental sensors are devices that detect the changes that take place in the environment such as change in humidity and temperature. Rapid population growth, industrialization, and agricultural activities have led to the deterioration of air, soil, and water quality levels over the decades, thereby affecting the biological life and ecosystem. Environmental sensing and monitoring ...


  • Environmental Science in China − Research Progress

    Over the last 20 years, China has been experiencing rapid economic growth, which has resulted in heavy environmental pollution nationwide. Environmental pollution poses risks to human and ecosystem health and limits the industrial and trade growth, thus becoming a major obstacle for China’s sustainable development in the new century. Recently, the Chinese central government has adopted a ...


  • Utilizing new technologies for bioindicator research. Environmental Bioindicators

    Endocrine acting compounds dispersed into the environment have been reported to adversely affect growth and reproduction of wildlife.Some of the compounds are industrial by-products, but evidence points to sewage treatment plants as a major source of these contaminants. Typically whole life studies with vertebrates and invertebrates are performed to determinate adverse health effects. ...

  • Towards use of grids in environmental research, management and policy

    The emerging technology of the grid will enable distributed "virtual organisations" to flexibly share resources including data, software, hardware and expertise. Potential applications in urban air quality illustrate that in addition to underpinning scientific research, grid technology can contribute strongly to environmental monitoring, decision-making and policy-making. Amongst factors that ...

  • Rationale for researching on corporate environmental reporting behaviour in a developing country: the case of Kenya

    The purpose of this paper is to analyse the possibility of corporate environmental reporting (CER) in a developing country so as to present the possible factors encouraging as well as those inhibiting the practice. It responds to the observation of prior research that CER research in developing countries is rare and the conjecture that developing countries should concern themselves with ...

  • Research as a tool for change?

    In many studies on environmental sustainability, research is combined with initiating action. This approach differs from the more traditional natural-sciences view of research. However, the potential problems of the action orientation are seldom reflected upon. The aim of this paper, is to discuss pitfalls as well as possibilities and to propose a methodology for action-oriented Environmental ...

  • Commentary: regional environmental management systems: lessons and challenges for industrial ecology research

    Industrial ecology has made a major contribution to the tools of corporate environmental management over the last ten years. However, it is argued that most of that contribution has been at the level of products and individual firms. It is argued that if the concept of industrial ecology is to be developed in a way that attracts public policy attention then it will have to demonstrate greater ...
