Three Faces of Ecosystem Management

Forests provide a full spectrum of goods and services that contribute to the socio-economic development of forest dependent communities. In tropical countries, the diversity of stakeholders depending on forests with their divergent interests and expectations, make sustainable forest management (SFM) difficult to achieve. Although several studies advocate the decentralization of forest management and public participation as important processes for SFM, little has been done to demonstrate how these processes could contribute to forest sustainability and socioeconomic development of forest dependent communities. Moreover, almost no ...
of wastes. While scientists and environmentalists have discussed ecosystem services for decades, these services were popularized and their definitions formalized by the United Nations 2004 Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA), a four-year study involving more than 1,300 scientists worldwide. 1 This grouped ecosystem services into four broad categories: provisioning , such as the production of food and water; regulating , such as the control of climate and disease; supporting , such as nutrient cycles and crop pollination; and cultural , such as spiritual and recreational benefits. As human populations grow, so do the resource ...
Restoration and Resilience » The Untold Gulf Disaster: Louisiana ...
Despite thousands of stories about the massive Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster, one important aspect largely has gone unreported in the media: the historic and massive degradation and loss of Louisiana’s protective coastal wetlands will magnify both the ecological and economic damage from the spill. This extraordinary loss of productive wetlands, which began in the 1930s and represents an area larger than the entire state of Delaware, also leaves Louisiana coastal communities and industries even more vulnerable to future hurricanes. In fashioning a response to the unfolding environmental catastrophe, the bar must be set ... market research, surveys and trends

USFS Report: 'Ecosystem Services' at Risk From Suburban Development
Large swaths of private forest, which account for most of the forested acreage in the United States, could be replaced by housing in the coming decades, potentially compromising water quality, carbon sequestration and other "ecosystem services" that those forests provide, according to a new report from the Forest Service. About 56 percent of the nation's forests are privately owned, and those forests are key to protecting urban watersheds and wildlife habitat, controlling erosion and absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. But those forests, about three-quarters of which are found in the East, are also the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Has anyone heard of a cooling tower 'universal rating chart ...
Cooling towers are a very important part of many chemical plants. They represent a relatively inexpensive and dependable means of removing low grade heat from cooling water. ctowers1.gif (3535 bytes) Figure 1: Closed Loop Cooling Tower System The make-up water source is used to replenish water lost to evaporation. Hot water from heat exchangers is sent to the cooling tower. The water exits the cooling tower and is sent back to the exchangers or to other units for further cooling. Types of Cooling Towers Cooling towers fall into two main sub-divisions: natural draft and mechanical draft. Natural draft designs use very large ...
