Agroforestry Systems: A Boon for Developing Country

Authors: Abhishek Raj, MK Jhariya and Nahid Khan

Abstract: An intensive practice of agroecosystem affects overall health and productivity of land. Agricultural land expansions lead to deforestation that not only makes blurred relation between these two land use practices but also affects overall productivity and health of ecosystem. In this context, agroforestry emerge new trend of farming system that involves both components into same piece of land simultaneously that are ecologically viable, socially acceptable and economically profitable.

Using Solar Photovoltaic Energy for Irrigation: A Review of the Application

Authors: Bojan Đurin, Shpetim Lajqi, Lucija Plantak and Nikola Kranjčić

Abstract: Modern agriculture, orcharding, gardening, as well as the use of grassy sports fields cannot be realized without irrigation. Such a procedure requires water and energy resources. Water resources define even consideration for the possibility of irrigation, while energy source is the second task which must be satisfied. Nowadays, using renewable energy sources for irrigation is a very promising solution, despite the still extensive use of fossil fuels.

Evaluation of Saline Water Intrusion and Suitability of Groundwater for Domestic Purposes in Lagos Coastal Area, SW Nigeria: Using NIOMR Jetty as a Case Study

Authors: Samuel Olatunde Popoola, John-Paul Unyimadu, Olubunmi Ayoola Nubi, Abdulmujeeb Hamzat, Akintunde Adewole Adegbite, Ismaila Ayinde Oba, Ekundayo Oluwaseun Adeyemi, Moromade Abibat Lere-Aliu, Salisu Adamu, Taofeek Olawale Olabiyi, Esther Karo Oghenede and Solomon Mordi

Abstract: The current study deals with the evaluation of groundwater suitability for domestic purposes within the coastal communities of Lagos, using a 200 feet monitoring borehole at the Nigerian Institute of Oceanography and marine research (NIOMR) Jetty, Southwest Nigeria as a case study. The monitoring borehole water was analysed for physicochemical parameters (pH, electrical conductivity, salinity, dissolved oxygen, temperature) and nutrients (nitrite, nitrate, phosphate, sulphate) from January-December, 2019.

Detection of Organochlorine Pesticide Residues in Lake Ziway and Health Risk Assessment

Authors: Habtamu wodajo

Abstract: Organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) are chlorinated hydrocarbons extensively used for agriculture pest control and mosquito control from 1940s to 1960s. The use of OCPs for agricultural purpose was banned in many countries including Ethiopia. However, studies show that small scale farm holders in the central rift valley of Ethiopia use cocktail of pesticides including banned OCPs.

Testing if Habitat and Movements Determine the Threats and Trends for Common Birds in Europe

Authors: Alfonso Balmori and Alfonso Balmori-de la Puente

Abstract: There is a growing concern about the biodiversity crisis the planet is suffering due to increasingly widespread human activity. A key question is whether only the species with threatened status should be managed by policy makers or whether also common species deserve consideration. This study is devoted for common birds, because for the threatened species the decline factors are much better known.

The Role of Chitosan (CHS) and Chitosan-Silver Nanoadsorbents (COMP) in Adsorption of Cu (II) and Fe (II) Ions from Electroplating Wastewater

Authors: A Sumaila, MM Ndamitso, YA Iyaka, AS Abdulkareem and JO Tijani

Abstract: In this work, green development of CHS-silver nanocomposite (COMP) using aqueous leaf extracts of Nicotiana tabacum and silver nitrate as reducing agent and precursor respectively. The prepared CHS and COMP were characterized by ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy. The CHS and nanocomposite were employed to remove copper and iron metal ions from electroplating wastewater via batch adsorptions process.

Underfunding, the Challenge of Federally Managed Protected Areas of Ethiopia

Authors: Simeneh Admasu Namaga, Hadis Tadele, Mekbeb Tessema and Zelealem Tefera

Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of the costs of protected areas (PAs) management in Ethiopia specifically those managed by the Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority. The authority is managing a network of protected area (PA) systems covering an area of about 29,950 km2. Primary and secondary data were used. A total of 3,045 rangers are required to effectively control illegal activities.

Protect the Environment and Protect Yourself from the Environment

Authors: Shamim Niazi

Abstract: Knowing the potential of a country and nation is critical for setting reasonable and analyzed vision of sustainable development for the people and their present and future generations. The natural and cultural resources of a country and people are fundamental to fostering the intergenerational equity, sustainable development and free and independent values. Natural resources are derived from the environment that includes both biotic and abiotic or renewable and non-renewable resources and these natural resources define how wealthy or poorer the country is. Cultural resources are historic and architectural sites, ruins, artifacts, sacred sites, traditional cultural properties, old structures, or places and locations of traditional cultural or religious importance to specific social or cultural groups.
