This booklet pursues a special technique, investigating either the ecological and socio-economic elements of carbon administration in Mediterranean ecosystems. All chapters are in accordance with papers initially provided on the 1st Istanbul Carbon Summit, held at Istanbul Technical college, 2–4 April, 2014, and revised following a peer-review process.
The publication addresses the summit’s 3 major subject matters – carbon administration, carbon applied sciences, and carbon tendencies – whereas additionally delivering chapters at the financial facets of carbon administration and the ecological features of the carbon cycle. The chapters on monetary points research the carbon exchange and its institutional, political, and legislative buildings in several Mediterranean countries, whereas these on ecological features assessment the discourse on and research of the similar ecological components and their suggestions as a result of governance processes.

This booklet is a set of papers awarded on the foreign Workshop on Geotechnical ordinary dangers held July 12–15, 2014, in Kitakyushu, Japan. The workshop was once the 6th within the sequence of Japan–Taiwan Joint Workshops on Geotechnical risks from huge Earthquakes and Heavy Rainfalls, held below the auspices of the Asian Technical Committee No.
Lake Baikal is the oldest, private and so much voluminous lake in the world, comprising one 5th of the World’s unfrozen clean water. It hosts the top variety of endemic animals recorded in any freshwater lake. until eventually lately it remained enigmatic why one of these excessive variety developed within the remoted Lake Baikal.
This paintings bargains a brand new portrayal of Queen Maria Carolina of Naples as a girl of energy with weaknesses and pursuits, and analyzes the Queen's activities, from her political offerings to her alliance and betrayals. A cautious exam of the interval (1781-1785) coated by way of the diary exhibits that the lifestyle of the Queen and gives key facts of her political acumen and her own relationships.

Terrestrial ecosystems control exchanges of CO2, nitrous oxides, water vapor, energy, and momentum between atmosphere and earth surface. Climate-ecosystem feedbacks may amplify or dampen regional and global climate change. Feedbacks between the carbon cycle and climate change have recently taken considerable attention. Studies show that the increased CO2 can provide a negative feedback by enhancing plant growth through (Vesterdal/Feifeld 2010) the damaging effects of other air pollutants such as tropospheric ozone.
The importance of soil texture for the SOC contents was stressed repeatedly as clays are an important component that directly stabilizes organic molecules against degradation (Bationo/Buerkert 2001). It was reported that independent of climatic variations such as precipitation, temperature, and duration of the dry season, SOC increased with the soil clay and silt contents (Six et al. 2002). Amount of carbon stored in soil ecosystems vary spatially and temporally. The organic carbon content of surface soils directly affect nutrient cycle and the gas exchange with the atmosphere.

Altitude has a dramatic control on the ecosystem C storage and its responses to global change. The protected areas in the high altitudes may provide a unique opportunity to study ecosystem response to climate change since these ecosystems are highly sensitive to climate change (Zhang et al.
