A global meta-analysis of yield stability in organic and conservation agriculture.

One of the primary challenges of our time is to enhance global food production and security. Most assessments in agricultural systems focus on plant yield. Yet, these analyses neglect temporal yield stability, or the variability and reliability of production across years. Here we perform a meta-analysis to assess temporal yield stability of three major cropping systems: organic agriculture and conservation agriculture (no-tillage) vs. conventional agriculture, comparing 193 studies based on 2896 comparisons...

Social acceptance and perceived ecosystem services of urban agriculture in Southern Europe: The case of Bologna, Italy.

Urban agriculture has become a common form of urban land use in European cities linked to multiple environmental, social and economic benefits, as well as to diversified forms (from self-production allotments to high-tech companies). Social acceptance will determine the development of urban agriculture and specific knowledge on citizens' perception is required in order to set the basis for policy-making and planning. The ecosystem services provided by urban agriculture can be determinant in this process. Th...

Insights from agriculture for the management of insecticide resistance in disease vectors.

Key to contemporary management of diseases such as malaria, dengue, and filariasis is control of the insect vectors responsible for transmission. Insecticide-based interventions have contributed to declines in disease burdens in many areas, but this progress could be threatened by the emergence of insecticide resistance in vector populations. Insecticide resistance is likewise a major concern in agriculture, where insect pests can cause substantial yield losses. Here, we explore overlaps between understandi...

Height and nutritional inequality in rural Mediterranean Spain, 1840-1965: irrigated versus dryland agriculture.

since the 2000s the nutritional status of Spanish rural populations has been studied by anthropometric history. But despite this undoubted progress, we hardly have comparative studies on the height and biological inequality between agrarian zones of different productive specialization (irrigated and dryland agriculture).

On the thermal behavior of protein isolated from different legumes investigated by DSC and TGA analyses.

Peas, lentils, faba beans, chickpeas and beans proteins are potentially renewable raw materials for bioplastic production that can be obtained from agriculture waste. Plastics are usually processed under heating and thus the thermal stability is a mandatory requirement for the application. In this study the thermal behaviour of several legume proteins isolates at different purity degree were investigated.

Society of Behavioral Medicine position statement: increase funding for fruits and vegetables production in The Farm Bill reauthorization.

The Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM) recommends that Congress increase funding for fruit and vegetable production and intake in The Farm Bill reauthorization. Analysis of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's databases indicates that the availability of fruits and vegetables in the food supply is at half or less than half of what is needed to meet federal dietary recommendations for Americans. Based on the extant literature, SBM supports including funding allocations for fruit and vegetable production, i...

Simulated response of a multi-element thick gas electron multiplier-based microdosimeter to high energy neutrons.

The response of a microdosimeter for neutrons above 14 MeV is investigated. The mean quality factors and dose-equivalents are determined using lineal energy distributions calculated by Monte Carlo simulations (Geant4 toolkit). From 14 MeV to 5 GeV, the mean quality factors were found to vary between 6.00 and 9.30 and the dose-equivalents were in agreement with the true ambient dose-equivalent at the depth of 10 mm inside the ICRU sphere, H(10). An energy-independent dose-equivalent response around a...

Tarsal coalition in paediatric patients.

Tarsal coalition is due to failure of segmentation between two or more foot bones during embryological development at a site where the joint cleft fails to develop. Depending on the nature of the tissue connecting the bones, the abnormality is a syndesmosis, synchondrosis, or synostosis. Although the coalition exists at birth, synostosis usually develops only late during growth. Talo-calcaneal and calcaneo-navicular coalitions account for over 90% of all cases of tarsal coalition. The joint at the site of t...

Seasonal and spatial variations of stream insect emergence in an intensive agricultural landscape.

A growing amount of literature exists on reciprocal fluxes of matter and energy between ecosystems. Aquatic subsidies of winged aquatic insects can affect terrestrial ecosystems significantly, but this issue is rarely addressed in agroecosystems. By altering the production of benthic macroinvertebrates, agricultural practices could increase or decrease the strength of aquatic subsidies and subsequently the provision of several ecosystem services to agriculture. Effects of seasons and environmental variables...
