Series: Advances in Environmental Research

BISAC: SCI026000

This edited volume presents various advancements in the field of environmental research. Chapter One scrutinizes the inherent value of mangrove forests from the perspectives of ethnoscience, ethnobotany, phytotechnology, and ecological aspects. Chapter Two highlights the latest research about abscisic acid biosynthesis, abscisic acid signaling pathways, and their implications in plant development and response to environmental stresses. Chapter Three assesses the policies on methane emissions of several countries, including the U.S., China, and Russia. Chapter Four describes various methods of extracting precious metals from electronic waste in detail. Chapter Five summarizes the research achievements of recent years in connection with the use of electrochemical technology for removal of volatile organic compounds. Finally, Chapter Six reviews microalgae-based processes and their relationship to carbon footprints.
