Tackling the plastic problem : a review on perceptions, behaviors, and interventions / Heidbreder, Lea Marie (Universität Koblenz-Landau. Interdisziplinäre Forschungsgruppe Umwelt) ; Babloka, Isabella (Universität Koblenz-Landau. Interdisziplinäre Forschungsgruppe Umwelt) ; Drews, Stefan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Menzel, Claudia (Universität Koblenz-Landau. Sozial-, Umwelt- und Wirtschaftspsychologie)
The excessive production and consumption of plastic has serious consequences on the environment and human health. The reduction of plastic has therefore become a major global challenge. As technical solutions might be insufficient to curb the problem, a perspective highlighting the impact of human behavior is needed. [...]

Algunes societats de caçadors-recol·lectors estan experimentant una transició nutricional ja que, a causa de la integració de l'economia de mercat i els seus efectes, s’introdueixen aliments processats en les seves dietes i per tant, augmenta el seu consum d'olis, greixos i sucres. [...]

(Mediterranean Wetlands Observatory)
Social-ecological systems in the Mediterranean Basin are characterised by high biodiversity and a prolonged cultural influence, leading to the co-evolution of these systems. The unique characteristics of Mediterranean social-ecological systems, current pressures leading to a decline in ecosystem services, and the need for coordinated action are recognised by policies promoting the protection and sustainable use of the region’s heritage.

Storing and sharing : A review of indigenous and local knowledge conservation initiatives / Benyei Peco, Petra Johanna (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Arreola, Guadalupe (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México) ; Reyes García, Victoria (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Despite its relative adaptive capacity and its many values, indigenous and local knowledge (ILK) is rapidly eroding. Over the past decades a myriad of efforts have emerged to prevent this erosion. In this work, we reviewed and systematically coded 138 ILK conservation initiatives published in academic papers in order to explore trends in participation, digitalization, timing, location, and approach of the initiatives.

Department of Crop and Soil Sciences) ; Beckie, Hugh (Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada)
Weeds pose severe threats to agricultural and natural landscapes worldwide. One major reason for the failure to effectively manage weeds at landscape scales is that current Best Management Practice guidelines, and research on how to improve such guidelines, focus too narrowly on property-level management decisions.

The microstructure and geochemical composition of foraminiferal tests are valuable archives for the reconstruction of paleoclimatic and paleoecological changes. In this context, the late Miocene Globigerinoides obliquus shells from Faneromeni section (Crete Island) were investigated through Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) imaging, Energy Dispersive System (EDS) analysis and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) spectroscopy in order to evaluate their potential as paleoenvironmental archives in the eastern Mediterranean.

Health risk perception and shale development in the UK and US / Harthorn, Barbara (University of California. Department of Anthropology) ; Halcomb, Laura (University of California. Department of Sociology) ; Partridge, Tristan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Thomas, Merryn (Cardiff University. School of Psychology) ; Enders, Catherine (University of California) ; Pidgeon, Nick (Cardiff University. School of Psychology)
In this paper, we examine discourse in public deliberations in pre-development locales in the UK and US about advantages and disadvantages of future shale development (‘fracking’). We aimed to understand how people anticipate potential health effects, broadly construed, of environmental toxicity and disturbance in the context of planned, but not yet implemented, energy development.

Metabolic impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems : Implications for fish communities and fisheries / Carozza, David A. (McGill University. Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences) ; Bianchi, Daniele (University of California. Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences) ; Galbraith, Eric D. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Aim:Climate change will reshape marine ecosystems over the 21st century through diverse and complex mechanisms that are difficult to assess quantitatively. Here, we characterize expectations for how marine community biomass will respond to the energetic consequences of changes in primary production and temperature‐dependent metabolic rates, under a range of fishing/conservation scenarios.

Environmental justice and Chinese dam-building in the global South / Siciliano, Giuseppina (University of London. School of Oriental and African Studies) ; Del Bene, Daniela (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Scheidel, Arnim (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Liu, Juan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Urban, Frauke (Kungl. Tekniska högskolan)
Chinese investments in large hydropower dams have rapidly increased all over the world in the last 20 years. Some of these projects have been contested both from a technological and political point of view due to the ways in which decisions have been made, as well as in relation to the resulting social-ecological change and ecological distributional aspects.
