Land-use Change And Forestry
Invitation to authors -- this is a book project in conjunction with nova.
The new book is entitled land use, land-use change and forestry (lulucf), in reference to the unfccc framework. This book is a compilation of 10-13 independent scientific articles, where each article is one chapter. Contributing authors must submit abstracts by august 15 (2013), and the full article by january 15 (2014).
The contributions are in the format of scientific articles, but nevertheless there is flexibility for contributions (e.G., thesis, research, project, reviews, compilations, policy, discussions, etc). The abstract submission is about a 1 page long description of the proposed article and must include- title, names of authors, email contact information, affiliation, and draft abstract text (100-400 words) indicating the proposed idea for the article. The article will have a maximum of 10 pages and further guidance on formatting will be provided. After the abstracts deadline, we will respond to authors, and selected abstracts will move forward in the process. Non-selected abstracts are also very important to us, as they may present new ideas for a subsequent book. Therefore, we will try our very best to include all authors, and we encourage related submissions regardless of how your work may or may not strictly fit within the conventional scope of the lulucf framework.
What we are looking for are initiatives/projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions (co2, noxs, ch4, etc). The work can include particular land uses (greenhouse gas reduction from technology and or methods, etc.) and/or from land-use changes promoting reductions in greenhouse gas emissions (e.G., carbon sequestration). Consider reductions in greenhouse gases in work undertaken in forest land, cropland, grassland, wetland, settlement, and other land uses.
We look forward to have you and your research team on board with us in this new challenge.
Please to forward any questions that may arise to our editing team members and nova. And please do send me any email containing the abstract submission.
At any time, let me know if you need help or have any further questions!
please extend this invitation (and feel free to forward this email) to your networks/peers who you think may be interested in taking part in this book.
Have a nice day and great week!+9 Other Responses
I am looking for expert advice on establishing an aquaponics system utilizing crawfish (looking at red claw) and fish. Therefore i need to know how to farm them in a closed system, their nutritional and environmental needs as well as excrement properties and chemical breakdown. My goal is to have both fish and crawfish (possibly separated by screen, fish on top and crawfish on the bottom) as the fertilizer suppliers in my aquaponics system. I eventually want to build up to small scale farming of the fish and crawfish with the produce production being the priority. I will be establishing this in wyoming so also looking into utilizing the walipini greenhouse method to utilize the geothermal aspects of underground (sunken) greenhouses. I would like to expand the current aspects of fish farming together with aquaponics to create a synergistic system that would be scalable from home to commercial in order to provide better and fresher foods to people.+2 Other Responses
