Advances in Environmental Research. Volume 74 offers insight into the management of Ramsar sites in Serbia, as well as into their status as tourist destinations, through a methodological framework proposed by the UNWTO.

Recent events set in motion by a new federal government that is openly hostile to environmental conservation and cultural diversity are discussed, with regard to how permanence strategies of political actors in the Amazon have been undermined.

The authors look at the management structures and processes related to green areas in Addis Ababa, with a particular focus on the level of cooperation between different stakeholders and the role of community organizations in 10 sub-cities within the Ethiopian capital.

Results are presented which contribute to the understanding of the influence of organic matter and other parameters of water and sediments on the complexation, availability, transport, and cycling of chemical species in reservoirs of the Amazon region.

Later, the toxic effects of water pollution on climate change, environment and human health are assessed, exploring the effects of industrial effluents on the environment and shedding light on future methods for industrial waste management.

One study presents previously unknown information regarding the impact of turfgrass on microbial diversity in turfgrass soil, laying the foundation for further investigations on microbiota in turfgrass ecosystems.
