Suitable Instruments for Integrating Biodiversity Considerations in Climate Change Mitigation Activities, particularly in the Land Use and Energy Sector


There is indicative evidence that anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are leading to changes in the global climate. The consequences for human beings and the environment as predicted by experts will vary from region to region. Precipitation levels are expected to increase in some regions, and decrease in others. Temperatures are changing, and the incidence of droughts and floods is likely to in...read more

The BERN Model: Bioindication for Ecosystem Regeneration towards Natural conditions


The eutrophying effects resulting from increased deposition rates of reactive nitrogen to ecosystems are a major problem in the context of long range transported air pollution. Therfore, one focus of the related effects oriented research is to improve knowledge on time- and area-depending effects for modelling purposes. The presented BERN-model allows for the first time to model changes of major p...read more

Risks and Benefits of Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases in Processes and Products under Special Consideration of the Properties Intrinsic to the Substance


Fluorinated greenhouse gases (GHG) are used in a multitude of applications to date. Next to perfluorinated compounds (e.g. CF4, C2F6 or SF6), especially the fluorinated hydrocarbons (HFC) are of relevance by means of volume. HFCs represent the special focus of this study. They are mainly applied as a substitute for fluorinated and chlorinated hydrocarbons (HCFC) which are internationally banned un...read more
