Language Contact and Bilingualism

What occurs – sociologically, linguistically, educationally, politically – whilst multiple language is in average use in a neighborhood? How do audio system deal with those languages concurrently, and what effect does this language touch have at the languages concerned? even though most folks on the planet use a couple of language in lifestyle, the method of the research of language has frequently been that monolingualism is the norm.

Unsaturated Soils: Research and Applications: Volume 2

Those volumes comprise the contributions to the second one ecu convention on Unsaturated Soils, E-UNSAT 2012, held in Napoli, Italy, in June 2012. the development is the second one of a chain of ecu meetings, and follows the 1st profitable one, organised in Durham, united kingdom, in 2008. The convention sequence is supported via Technical Committee 106 of the foreign Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering on Unsaturated Soils.

Recent Trends in Regeneration Research

Regeneration, i. e. the alternative of misplaced physique elements via new outgrowths or through remodelling latest tissues, has been studied for hundreds of years. despite the fact that, in recent times vital advancements came about during this box too, as a result of new soph­ isticated thoughts and to novel theoretical strategies. Advances in Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry, mobilephone and Neurobiology, Immunology, to say some of them, are the most explanations of this resurgence of curiosity in regeneration.

Humanitarian and Relief Logistics: Research Issues, Case Studies and Future Trends

This edited quantity highlights fresh learn advances in humanitarian aid logistics. The contributed chapters span the spectrum of key concerns and actions from preparedness to mitigation operations (response), making plans and execution. the quantity additionally offers state of the art tools and structures via present case experiences.

Example text

The pair-wise comparisons are supposed to be carried out taking advantage of the expert’s knowledge and experience. Evaluation criteria pack For each habitat region a set of 10 criteria (IAIA 2002; Koutsos et al. 2008) is proposed to be used to evaluate the possible impacts to one or more species of the nearest Natura 2000 sites. As it is common in many studies these criteria have simple integer values (Koutsos et al. 2008) in order to facilitate the impact assessment and to avoid possible bias errors.

Groundwater-surface water interactions The biogeochemical processes within the upper few centimeters of sediments beneath nearly all surface water bodies (hyporheic zone) (Hancock et al. 2005) have a profound effect on the chemistry of the water interchange, and here is where most of the recent research has been focusing is. Groundwater and surface water are not isolated components of the hydrologic system, but instead interact in a variety of physiographic and climatic landscapes. Besides that the origin of the groundwater is the surface water, development of contamination of one commonly affects the other.

Lambrakis et al. ), Advances in the Research of Aquatic Environment, Vol. M. Koutsos et al. The lack of mitigation measures along with the increased human activities (due to the growth of settlements) may be crucial for the future of environmentally ‘fragile’ regions such as the protected areas of Natura 2000 network. In order to promote the maintenance or restoration of biodiversity the European Union issued a conservation directive (2009/95/EC) taking into account the economical, social, cultural and regional requirements.
