BISAC: SCI026000

In this volume, various scientific advancements concerning environmental research are presented. Chapter One outlines the connections between modern slavery and deforestation, highlighting issues faced by communities within and close to the natural resources protected by the forest, and solutions for the protection of both people and nature. Chapter Two emphasizes recent understanding on the role of various environmental factors in control of reproductive and associated behaviors in songbirds. Chapter Three investigates the impact of black carbon, released by the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels and consisting of aggregates of nanospheres, on climate. Chapter Four considers the behavior of the submerged macrophyte Elodea canadensis, one of the most widely spread species of aquatic plants in the Yenisei River, in connection with radioactive contamination. Lastly, Chapter Five advocates for the restructuring of the forest sector’s governance in Madagascar to reduce deforestation and preserve species richness.
