The challenges of sustainably feeding a growing planet
Feeding the world’s population while ensuring environmental sustainability is one of the world’s ‘grand challenges’. While population and income will remain the most important drivers of global food
Root anatomical phenes associated with water acquisition from drying soil: targets for crop improvement.
TLDR
Root anatomical phenes represent a promising yet underexplored and untapped source of crop breeding targets, and may have strong interactions with the spatiotemporal dynamics of soil water availability, and with root architecture and other aspects of the root phenotype.
Arterial Hypertension and Serum Uric Acid in Elderly- SEPHAR III Study.
TLDR
Age represented one of the factors contributing to the increased level of serum uric acid, and an increasing prevalence of arterial hypertension with age, together with a poor control of blood pressure was obtained.
What evidence exists on the effectiveness of the techniques and management approaches used to improve the productivity of field-grown tomatoes under conditions of water-, nitrogen- and/or phosphorus-deficit? A systematic map
TLDR
This systematic map identifies a range of interventions that have been successfully implemented in fields to improve the yield of commercial tomatoes under conditions of water, N and/or P deficit.
Management of hypertension in the very old: an intensive reduction of blood pressure should be achieved in most patients
TLDR
Findings support the concept that an intensive therapeutic strategy appears reasonable even in elderly hypertensive patients, particularly when the treatment is well tolerated.

TLDR
This review provides a synthesis of the evolution of loci implicated in human pharmacological response and metabolism, interpreted within the theoretical framework of population genetics and molecular evolution.
PERCEPTIONS OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH IMPACTS OF WOOD PRODUCT USE IN BUILDINGS: A SURVEY AMONG ARCHITECTS ON THE UNITED STATES WEST COAST
The construction sector has a larger greenhouse gas reduction potential than other sectors. Selection of more sustainable materials can plan an important role alleviating greenhouse gas emissions.
What evidence exists on the effectiveness of the techniques and management approaches used to improve the productivity of field grown tomatoes under conditions of water-, nitrogen- and/or phosphorus-deficit? A systematic map protocol
TLDR
A systematic map methodology that aims to provide a coherent synthesis of the available evidence among the literature on the techniques and management approaches that may ensure the productivity of field-grown tomatoes under conditions of water-, N- and/or P-deficits, either as single or combined stresses is set out.
