He added that a number of research projects has been adopted during the year 2012 funded by His Majesty and the Research Council (TRC) in the fields of education, energy, non-renewable resources, biotic environment, human and social sciences, industry, information and communications systems and life sciences, and 63 internal scholarship have been granted in various fields, in addition to what SQU has provided to the local community in terms of various consultations and training courses.
People living in cities are significantly removed from the natural processes that constitute our biotic environment.
The plants mature [approximately equal to] 6 years after planting; at that stage, the trees can reach 10-12 m in height, although the growth rate depends on the physical and biotic environment (4).
Content will cover molecules and organelles, tissues and organs, signal perception, plant and biotic environment, and information processing and acquisition.
If funded, this project will provide a new understanding of the way living things are continuously constructed through time and interact with their biotic environment.
We propose to investigate uncertainties in biodiversity response to climate change by improving and integrating existing approaches for modelling biotic interactions in large-scale multispecies assemblages, taking into account reciprocal effects between species and their abiotic and biotic environment as well as variations in biotic interactions across space and time, and considering macroecological constraints on species assemblages.
Topics on the abiotic environment include a habitat-based approach to catchment assessment and sustainable development, seasonal surface water quality, and phosphorus and eutrophication of a temperate lake and a shallow freshwater lake; those on biotic environments included the impact of eutrophication or a tropic reservoir, invasive aquatic weeds, tropic evolution and nutrient dynamics, invertebrate predation and other factors controlling a plankton community, and eutrophication and fish; those on restoration cover a range of lakes from around the world, including those in subtropical, tropical, tropical urban, and hypereutrophic lake set in China.
The behavior of plastics in some of the environments in which they are typically used, such as in outdoor settings, biotic environments, or fires, are discussed in the next section, and the final section consists of chapters pertaining to the recycling and thermal treatment of plastics waste.
