1.1. Romania (RO) borders Ukraine in the north and east, Moldavia in the north-east, the Black Sea in the southeast, Bulgaria in the south, Serbia in the south-west and Hungary in the north-west. A population of approx. 21.7 million people is spread rather equally on 237,499 sq. km, with a very low density (93 people/sq.mile). Bucharest is the capital city, with a population of 2.06 million people. The country comprises 9 historical regions: Bukovina [Bucovina], Moldavia [Moldova], Transylvania… 
The objective of this research was to study the outcomes of teaching method based on Science, Technology, Society, and Environment (STSE) in enhancing the nature of science understanding, emphasizing
Satellite tracking of migrating loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) displaced in the open sea
It is concluded that adult loggerhead turtles are apparently unable to compensate for the displacement and can return to a pelagic life style characteristic of juvenile turtles.
Satellite Tracking of Green Sea Turtles Chelonia mydas in Korean Waters
To investigate the distribution and migrations of sea turtles occurring in Korean waters, an adult female green sea turtle Chelonia mydas was tagged with a satellite transmitter and released at Busan
Moving towards a far-away goal: a foreword
Moving towards a far-away goal is a continuous challenge for many animal species, given that goal-oriented actions are an integral part of different aspects of their everyday life. In the fields of
Long-Distance Animal Migrations in the Oceanic Environment: Orientation and Navigation Correlates
A large variety of marine animals migrate in the oceanic environment, sometimes aiming at specific targets such as oceanic islands or offshore productive areas. Thanks to recent technological
Anterior lateral eyes of Lycosa tarantula (Araneae: Lycosidae) are used during orientation to detect changes in the visual structure of the substratum
The first evidence that spiders can use the visual structure of the substratum to return home is presented, suggesting that, when homing, L. tarantula uses both idiothetic information and visual information gathered through ALEs.
A review of long‐distance movements by marine turtles, and the possible role of ocean currents
Major oceanographic processes (such as main currents and eddies) have been recently shown to have a remarkable influence on leatherback movements, making it questionable whether these journeys are to be considered migrations or, rather, prolonged stays in vast feeding areas.
Long-distance migration and homing after displacement in the green turtle (Chelonia mydas): a satellite tracking study
Four green turtle females were tracked by satellite during their post-reproductive migration in the South China Sea. Three of them reached their feeding grounds 923–1551 km distant. During nesting
The behavioural ecology of migratory salmonids in the River Tweed, UK
This study investigated various life history stages of salmonids within the River Tweed, UK with a focus on migratory movements. The River Tweed is a large upland river situated on the border between
Homing in the Rubí Poison Frog Andinobates bombetes (Dendrobatidae)
According to this study, this species has a limited homing ability when compared to most poison frogs studied so far except for O. pumilio, which seems more similar in body size and resources used for reproduction.


The Aromânians: an ethnos and language with a 2000-year history
Abstract The Aromânians are one of the small ethnic groups in Bulgaria: an ancient Balkan people which, as a result of migration and the vicissitudes of history, dispersed across the Balkan
Ethnic Germans as a Language Minority in Central and Eastern Europe: Legislative and Policy Frameworks in Poland, Hungary and Romania
In many cases, language is a vital component of individual and group identity and figures prominently among the aspects by which ethnic minorities distinguish themselves from majority populations in
The Ethnicity of Aromanians after 1990: the Identity of a Minority that Behaves like a Majority
For my doctoral thesis “Ethnicity and distribution of the Aromanians in Southeast Europe” I studied the question if the Aromanians (also Aroumanians, Aromunians, Cincars, Kutsovlachs,
Analysing political exchanges between minority and majority leaders in Romania
Introduction The issue of minority rights in Eastern Europe can be approached from a multitude of perspectives. This article employs a political view not concerned with the cultural aspect of
Cancer incidence in five continents. Volume VI
The cancer registries which contributed to the present volume were encouraged to submit the information on cancer cases in the form of an anonymous case listing on computer media, and this has permitted a considerable enhancement in the comparability and validity of the published results.

The basic idea of LCA is that all environmental burdens connected with a product or service have to be assessed, back to the raw materials and down to waste removal. Therefore, the term “Life Cycle
Natural halocarbons in the air and in the sea
These measurements confirm those of R. Rasmussen who found methyl chloride in rural air over the West Coast of the USA and reveal methyl chloride as the dominant halocarbon of the atmosphere and the possible bearing on the chlorine-catalysed destruction of stratospheric ozone is discussed.
Use of specialized microbial strains in the treatment of industrial waste and in soil decontamination
The role and function of humus in soil with emphasis on absorption of herbicides and chelation of microorganisms and the role of polychlorinated biphenyls in soils and plants are studied.
