This book provides readers with the latest developments in environmental research. Chapter One reviews advances in the life cycle assessment of biorenewable technologies. Chapter Two analyzes the life cycle assessments of an optical network terminal and a tablet. Chapter Three concentrates on service life, reliability and their role in the life cycle analysis of concrete structures. Chapter Four focuses on land-use changes and site variables on the soil organic carbon pool. Chapter Five reviews the characterization of biliary caseinolytic proteases in two environmental contimation sentinal fish species with an emphasis on metalloproteinases. Chapter Six analyzes and discusses the literature related to the sustainable water use for pistachio production under drought conditions, focusing on research on this crop done in Mediterranean areas and related to its agronomic and physiological responses to limited water resources. Chapter Seven examines household water supply and sanitation practices across the different residential zones of Osogbo, Nigeria. Chapter Eight discusses corporate reporting on climate change and global warming issues. Chapter Nine provides a review of gender justice in international environmental law. (Imprint: Nova)
