Advances in Environmental Research. Volume 79 begins with a focus on how, due to the political-economic non-robustness of centralized climate policy and the costs of mitigating catastrophic climate-change, a multi-pronged approach at the sub-global level with mitigation, adaptation and amelioration technologies can be advocated from a classical-liberal point of view.
The authors attempt to address climate financial challenges, proposing insurance as the appropriate mechanism to pool funds to assist countries that have experienced damage and loss from extreme weather events.
An attempt is made to illustrate the inherent oil degrading mechanism in the presence of various interacting parameters affecting bacterial growth, along with few case studies. Future opportunities that may be explored for the effective bioaugmentation of oily wastewater treatment are highlighted.
The authors also examine the effects of light wavelength on flower opening and vase life using light-emitting diodes, proposing that light environment control is a powerful tool to improve the quality of cut rose and other ornamental flowers.
The closing study focuses on Turkey’s position and geographical features created by differences in climate in the natural forest vegetation, shrubs or bushes, causing the formation of a variety of plants. It is estimated that the number of species of flowering plants distributed in the country is about 12,000.
