Biometeorology for Adaptation to Climate Variability and Change, K. Many new selections of Boston ferns have been introduced. Due to the lack of a semester structure, the integration of different subjects into a consistently structured curriculum, and the possibility to directly change to the doctoral program without writing a Master’s thesis, the duration of study is shortened. Improved methods of experiment design and statistical analysis made possible the comparative study of plants and their cultivation systems.

The bottom line: The effect of land use conversion on rising surface temps is an underestimated component of global warming, and just because it feels cooler today than it did yesterday does not mean big-time climate change is right around the corner. In the tropics, the 40-50 day oscillation documented by Madden and Julian (1972), Weickmann (1983), Lau, and their colleagues, dominates the Indian and Pacific oceans from 60 deg E to the date line. Vietnam also wants to prove its…... [ read more ]
