Populations are increasingly vulnerable to disastrous natural or technological events, as demographic and urban growth lead to greater exposures of goods and people. Large-scale evacuation strategies are efficient tools for mitigating this vulnerability. Nonetheless, risks incurred during an important displacement through an altered environment are high: refusal to evacuate, crashes, direct exposure to the source hazard, riots, emergency services failures ...  En savoir plus ...

Habitat loss and fragmentation are major threats to biodiversity and, incidentally, for the stability and existence of human society. The domination of nature by modern western societies is expressed by the transformation and simplification of the landscape matrix, which can cause disruptions in processes and degradation of ecosystem services. In this context, protected areas have been designed as a cornerstone of the conservation of wildlife and flora but ...  En savoir plus ...

The reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by improving the efficiency of agricultural systems through robust ecologically-based management practices represents the most important challenge facing agriculture today. Models are needed to evaluate the effects of soil properties, climate, and agricultural management practices on soil carbon and on the nitrogen transformations responsible forGHG emissions. Models of Carbon and nitrogen cycles in ...  En savoir plus ...

Seasonally inundated by nutrient-rich sediments from Andean headwaters, Amazonian “whitewater” river floodplains have long been centers for human settlements practicing a mixed subsistence system of cultivation, supplemented by fishing and hunting. Over the past several decades, unprecedented demographic and economic growth have challenged the traditional balance of resource use that sustains both humans and biodiversity on the floodplain and bordering upland. Threats to the integrity of Amazon floodplain habitats from dams, river navigation networks, extension of the agricultural frontier, and climate change are increasingly severe. However, to date, biodiversity scenarios for the Amazon have not considered these critical environments. En savoir plus ...
