The value of wet leaves.

Contents I. II. III. IV. V. References SUMMARY: An often-overlooked feature of all plants is that their leaf surfaces are wet for significant periods over their lifetimes. Leaf wetting has a number of direct and indirect effects on plant function from the scale of the leaf to that of the ecosystem. The costs of leaf wetting for plant function, such as the growth of pathogens and the leaching of nutrients, have long been recognized. However, an emerging body of research has also begun to demonstrate some ver...


Wetting phenomena in membrane distillation: Mechanisms, reversal, and prevention.

Membrane distillation (MD) is a rapidly emerging water treatment technology; however, membrane pore wetting is a primary barrier to widespread industrial use of MD. The primary causes of membrane wetting are exceedance of liquid entry pressure and membrane fouling. Developments in membrane design and the use of pretreatment have provided significant advancement toward wetting prevention in membrane distillation, but further progress is needed. In this study, a broad review is carried out on wetting incidenc...

A heterogeneous artificial stock market model can benefit people against another financial crisis.

This paper presents results of an artificial stock market and tries to make it more consistent with the statistical features of real stock data. Based on the SFI-ASM, a novel model is proposed to make agents more close to the real world. Agents are divided into four kinds in terms of different learning speeds, strategy-sizes, utility functions, and level of intelligence; and a crucial parameter has been found to ensure system stability. So, some parameters are appended to make the model which contains zero-...

The dataset also includes key environmental factors associated with soil P dynamics and availability, including climate factors, vegetation, soil and parent material types, soil age, and soil physiochemical properties such as particle size, bulk density, pH in water, organic carbon, total nitrogen, and extractable iron and alu...

The transfer of fallout plutonium from paddy soil to rice: A field study in Japan.

Reported transfer factor (TF) values of Pu from paddy soil to rice are rather scarce, despite the radiotoxicity of Pu and the irreplaceable role of rice in Asian peoples' diets. Here, we conducted a field study to investigate the transfer of global fallout Pu from paddy soil to rice grain (hulled rice) in Japan. The Pu/Pu atomic ratios in two rice grain samples out of 16 samples were determined and the ratios corresponded well with the global fallout value. The soil-to-rice TF in 12 Japanese prefectures ran...

Enhanced irreversible fixation of cesium by wetting and drying cycles in soil.

The retention of radioactive cesium (Cs) in soil is significantly related to the types of clay minerals, while the weathering process affects the irreversible adsorption sites in clay minerals. In this study, the effect of weathering (exposure duration of Cs and repeated wetting and drying cycles) on fractionation of Cs in soils was investigated using fractionation analysis by the sequential extraction. The residual fraction of Cs increased slowly with exposure time but increased rapidly by repeated wetting...

Exposure of Brazilian soil and groundwater to pollution by coccidiostats and antimicrobial agents used as growth promoters.

The World Health Organization has identified antimicrobial resistance as one of the most important threats to global health. Brazil is one of the world's leading meat producers and the Brazilian use of veterinary antimicrobials as therapeutic agents and prophylactic or growth promoters in animal production remains problematic. Many antimicrobials are not completely metabolized and their excretion represents a significant source of environmental exposure. The aim of this work was to estimate the exposure ris...

Influence of Irrigation and Wetting Agent on Fungicide Residues in Creeping Bentgrass.

Fungicides (azoxystrobin, propiconazole, pyraclostrobin, and thiophanate-methyl) were applied to field plots of creeping bentgrass established on a sand-based root zone substrate and maintained at a cutting height of 0.34 cm. The wetting agent, a modified alkylated polyol, was applied 24 h prior to fungicide application. Irrigation (0.51 cm) was applied to plots immediately after the fungicide spray. Turf was sampled nine times over 42 days to examine fungicide residues in three components of the turf profi...

Inorganic surface coating with fast wetting-dewetting transitions for liquids manipulations.

Liquids manipulation is a fundamental issue for microfluidics and miniaturized sensors. Fast wetting states transitions by optical methods have proven being efficient for liquids manipulations by organic surface coatings, however rarely been achieved by using inorganic coatings. Here we report a fast optical induced wetting states transition surface achieved by inorganic coatings, enabling tens of seconds transitions for a wetting-dewetting cycle, shortened from typically an hour as previously reported. Her...

Through soil passivation experiments, arsenic sequential extractions, and analysis of basic physicochemical properties of contaminated soils and repair agents, this study was to explore the applicability of dehydrated sludge-sepiolite compound repair agents and dehydrated slud...

Challenges of bringing a new sedative to market!

The current review examines the success and failures of the development of new hypnotic compounds for the human market. One of the important aspects is that one of the key present agents, propofol, is considered by many anaesthesiologists as 'the ideal'. However, all drugs have adverse or side-effects.

Effects of nitrogen deposition on diversity and composition of soil bacterial community in a subtropical Cunninghamia lanceolata plantation.

The increasing rate of atmospheric nitrogen (N) deposition has become the focus of research attention. Soil bacterial community plays an important role in soil nutrient cycling. We stimulated N deposition at the Forest Ecosystem of Fujian Normal University and Global Change Research Station in Chenda Town, Sanming City in the Fujian Province of China. We examined the effect of N deposition on the structure and composition of soil bacterial community using 16S rDNA amplification sequencing. The results showe...

Fate and wetting potential of bio-refractory organics in membrane distillation for coke wastewater treatment.

Membrane distillation (MD) has been hindered in industrial applications due to the potential wetting or fouling caused by complicated organic compositions. This study investigated the correlations between the fate and wetting potential of bio-refractory organics in the MD process, where three coke wastewater samples pre-treated with bio-degradation and coagulation served as feed solutions. Results showed that although most of the bio-refractory organics in coke wastewater were rejected by the hydrophobic me...

Theoretical investigation of heterogeneous wettability in porous media using NMR.

It is highly important to understand the heterogeneous wettability properties of porous media for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). However, wettability measurements are still challenging in directly investigating the wettability of porous media. In this paper, we propose a multidimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) method and the concept of apparent contact angles to characterize the heterogeneous wettability of porous media. The apparent contact angle, which is determined by both the wetting surface cov...

Current research trends on plastic pollution and ecological impacts on the soil ecosystem: A review.

Plastic pollution in the environment is currently receiving worldwide attention. Improper dumping of disused or abandoned plastic wastes leads to contamination of the environment. In particular, the disposal of municipal wastewater effluent, sewage sludge landfill, and plastic mulch from agricultural activities is a serious issue and of major concern regarding soil pollution. Compared to plastic pollution in the marine and freshwater ecosystems, that in the soil ecosystem has been relatively neglected. In t...

General equilibrium with endogenous trading constraints.

In a competitive model where agents are subject to endogenous trading constraints, we make the access to financial trade dependent on prices and consumption decisions. Our framework is compatible with the existence of both credit market segmentation and market exclusion. In this context, we show equilibrium existence in two scenarios. In the first one, individuals can fully hedge the payments of segmented financial contracts by trading unsegmented assets. In the second one, it is assumed that agents may com...

Global trends in nitrate leaching research in the 1960-2017 period.

Nitrate leaching is the process whereby the nitrate (NO) anion moves downwards in the soil profile with soil water. Nitrate leaching is commonly associated with chemical nitrogen (N) fertilizers used in agriculture. Nitrate leaching from different sources and contamination of surface and groundwater is a global phenomenon that has prompted social and political pressure to reduce nitrate leaching and contamination of water bodies. This bibliometric study analyzed global trends in nitrate leaching research. T...

Lateral carbon transfer from erosion in noncroplands matters.

This study combines two unprecedentedly high resolution (250 × 250 m) maps of soil erosion (inter-rill and rill processes) and soil organic carbon to calculate a global estimate of erosion-induced organic carbon (C) displacement. The results indicate a gross C displacement by soil erosion of 2.5-0.3+0.5 Pg C/year. The greatest share of displaced C (64%) comes from seminatural lands and forests. This suggests that lateral C transfer from erosion in noncroplands may play a more important role than previou...

How various design decisions on matching individuals in relationships affect the outcomes of microsimulations of sexually transmitted infection epidemics.

Microsimulations are increasingly used to estimate the prevalence of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). These models consist of agents which represent a sexually active population. Matching agents into sexual relationships is computationally intensive and presents modellers with difficult design decisions: how to select which partnerships between agents break up, which agents enter a partnership market, and how to pair agents in the partnership market. The aim of this study was to analyse the effect of...

Substandard and falsified medical products are a global public health threat. A pilot survey of awareness among physicians in Sweden.

Substandard and falsified medical products are a public health threat, primarily associated with low- and middle-income countries. Today, the phenomenon also exists in high-income countries. Increased Internet access has opened a global market. Self-diagnosis and self-prescription have boosted the market for unregulated websites with access to falsified medicines.

The presence of fecal test soil protects bacteria during cleaning/disinfection.

Reusable medical devices (RMDs) must be reprocessed between uses to render them safe for each use and each patient. Cleaning used devices removes organic and inorganic soil making them either safe for reuse or ready for disinfection/sterilization depending on the device. Although cleaning is an important step in a RMD's life cycle, it is not always a priority during device design. In addition, when performing cleaning validation, it is recommended that the manufacturer takes into consideration, what the mos...

Global soil nitrous oxide emissions since the pre-industrial era estimated by an ensemble of Terrestrial Biosphere Models: Magnitude, attribution and uncertainty.

Our understanding and quantification of global soil nitrous oxide (N O) emissions and the underlying processes remain largely uncertain. Here we assessed the effects of multiple anthropogenic and natural factors, including nitrogen fertilizer (N) application, atmospheric N deposition, manure N application, land cover change, climate change and rising atmospheric CO concentration, on global soil N O emissions for the period 1861-2016 using a standard simulation protocol with seven process-based terrestrial b...
