The Making of Green Knowledge: Environmental Politics and Cultural Transformation

The Making of eco-friendly wisdom offers a breathtaking creation to the politics of our environment and the advance of environmental wisdom. Focusing specifically at the quest lately for extra sustainable kinds of socio-economic improvement, it makes an attempt to put environmental politics inside of a vast old point of view, and examines different political ideas and cultural practices that experience emerged.

Environmental Law and American Business: Dilemmas of Compliance

We're within the moment decade of modem environmental legislation. through a few signs this physique of law has matured significantly. we will element to statutes and codes on the federal, kingdom, and native degrees which tackle nearly each available type of pollutants and environmental insult. but, regardless of the lifestyles of this massive physique of legislations, regardless of massive costs on enforcement, and regardless of the lively efforts of individuals sympathetic to environmental pursuits, violations are quite a few.

Example text

There are three possible fates for elements accumulated by FVPs: (i) entry into food chains through consumption by herbivores; (ii) excretion into the water column; and (iii) release or resedimentation upon decomposition of the plant. It is unclear whether submerged aquatic plants in general are capable of excreting trace elements from their tissues into water (Denny 1980). Only three studies (Czuba and Mortimer 1980, Everard and Denny 1985, Mayes et al. , where data purporting to show excretion could not be explained by contamination of the experimental chamber or by biomass dilution of element concentrations).

B. ). Methodological differences between studies are of greatest concern. Perhaps as a result, serious discrepancies appear in the results, particularly for Cd. A German-language publication (Schuster 1979) provided useful information on experimental design and techniques required in metal toxicity studies with freshwater plants, but a comparable English-language manual has not appeared. , the First Symposium on the Use of Plants for Toxicity Assessment, Atlanta, April 1989, co-sponsored by the USEPA) may stimulate the necessary research and development work.

The springtime accrual of elements by vascular macrophytes is consistent with the "luxury consumption" hypothesis (Loehwing 1951), which contends that plants early in the growing season rapidly take up minerals in amounts surplus to normal metabolic requirements, coinciding, with a period of rapid protein synthesis. There is evidence of this for Mn, Cu, Sr, Zn, and essential base cations in Typha latifolia (Smith et al. 1988). These seasonal -changes in element status have not been adequately accounted for in many macrophyte/toxic element surveys.
