Influence of early nitrogen application on physiological properties and ultrastructures of functional leaves of potatoes under drought stress

The changes in physiological properties and leaf ultrastructures caused by early nitrogen application for potatoes under drought stress were explored. Potato variety Chuanyu117 was used to conduct a controlled experiment in a sand medium. Nutrient solution treatments (0.84,1.26, 1.68 and 2.10 ) were administered, followed by severe drought, moderate drought, and normal (control) water treatments (45%, 60%, and 75% of soil...

A review on Aquaculture: A potential solution to food insecurity and poverty in Kenya Steve Omari Ngodhe and George Ochola

In Kenya, it has been documented that demand for fish is endlessly rising; however, supply of fish continues to lag behind due to dwindling of natural fish stocks. Besides, there is still insignificant aquaculture production in Kenya compared to a global scale, which is not in tandem with the worldwide rapid growth of the sector. Nonetheless, Kenya exhibits great yet to be fully explored potential for aquaculture...

Study of the floristic diversity of rangelands in arid regions of South-East Algeria

In the context of identifying the spontaneous forage species constituting a large part of the ruminant diet of the arid regions of Algeria; our research focused on the study of the floristic diversity of pasture rangelands in southeastern Algeria. The floristic surveys carried out in four grazing stations have made it possible to identify 28 plant species that belong to 16 families. This community is dominated by Poaceae,...

Native nitrogen-fixing plants in the natural landscape of Canterbury, New Zealand

Although the growth characteristics and preferred growth conditions of many of nitrogen-fixing species have been described, less is known of their natural species assemblages and associated soil status in natural or semi-natural conditions. The work studied plant communities and soil properties at locations where native N-fixers are naturally found in Canterbury, New Zealand. Four native N-fixers (Sophora microphylla (S....

DEFORESTATION IMPACT ON ECOSYSTEM SERVICES IN KAMFINSA SUB-CATCHMENT OF KAFUE RIVER BASIN IN ZAMBIA

Forests are important in the lives of local communities as they provide poles for construction, woodfuel for cooking, they help reduce soil erosion and provide various foods and medicines due to biodiversity. Most local communities depend on forests in supplementing their livelihoods. At the moment forests are being lost and it is important to understand the impacts of the lost. Therefore, Tthe objective of the study was...

Ecological status of freshwater ecosystems: ''Courses of water of the Oukaimeden and Ourika'' (High Atlas of Marrakech)

Surface water is said to be in a good state when its chemical and ecological status is at least good. The physico-chemical quality of water provides only a point-in-time image of the quality of a river. The study of aquatic fauna and flora informs us well of the actual quality of the course of water due to a character integrator of these biological compartments. This makes us to study the quality of the course of the fresh...

Gas flaring effects on spatial dynamism of soil cover through remotely sensed images: Case of study Ibeno Local Government, Akwa-Ibom, Nigeria

Soil cover refers to vegetation, including crops, and crop residues on the surface of the soil. Gas flaring is a common practice associated with oil and gas industry in Nigeria and has a cumulative effect on the greenness of vegetation. This study analyzes remotely sensed, imagery to reveal the effects of gas flaring over time on soil cover in Ibeno Local Government Akwa-Ibom State. A 4-date serial Landsat satellite were...
