Phytostabilization: A Green Approach to Contaminant Containment
Phytostabilization involves the establishment of a plant cover on the surface of the contaminated sites with the aim of reducing the mobility of contaminants within the vadose zone throughExpand
Carbon sequestration in urban landscapes: the example of a turfgrass system in New Zealand
Soil carbon sequestration was analysed in the topsoil (0–0.25 m) of putting greens of different ages (5, 9, 20, 30, 40 years) in a golf course in Palmerston North, New Zealand. The soil texture wasExpand
R&D Reactions To High-Technology Import Competition
For a seventeen-year panel covering 308 U.S. manufacturers, the authors analyze companies' R&D spending reactions to changes in high-technology imports. On average, R&D/sales ratios were reduced inExpand
Immobilization of Lead from Pb-Contaminated Soil Amended with Peat Moss
Immobilization of lead (Pb) using soil amendments can reduce Pb toxicity and bioavailability in soil. This study evaluated Pb immobilization in a Pb-contaminated soil by using peat moss throughExpand
Influence of bamboo vinegar supplementation on growth performance, apparent total tract digestibility, blood characteristics, meat quality, fecal noxious gas content, and fecal microbial
Abstract A 42-day trial with 60 [(Landrace × Yorkshire) × Duroc] pigs (79.7 ± 1.42 kg) was conducted to evaluate the effects of bamboo vinegar (BV) supplementation in finishing pigs. Pigs wereExpand
Potential for the phytoremediation of arsenic-contaminated mine tailings in Fiji
The objectives of this study were (1) to compare the bioavailability of arsenic (As) to plants in an As-spiked agricultural soil and a naturally contaminated mine tailings, (2) to compare theExpand
The use of visible and near‐infrared spectroscopy for the analysis of soil water repellency
Summary This study investigated the potential of visible/near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (Vis-NIRS) to predict soil water repellency (SWR). The top 40 mm of soils (n = 288) across 48 sitesExpand
Top managers education and R&D investment
Abstract This paper analyzes data spanning 17 years on R&D expenditures and the educational background of top managers for 221 relatively research-intensive U.S. corporations. The fraction ofExpand
