Freshwater for resilience: a shift in thinking

, : Freshwater for resilience: a shift in thinking. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Series B, Biological Sciences 358(1440): 2027-2036

Humanity shapes freshwater flows and biosphere dynamics from a local to a global scale. Successful management of target resources in the short term tends to alienate the social and economic development process from its ultimate dependence on the life-supporting environment. Freshwater becomes transformed into a resource for optimal management in development, neglecting the multiple functions of freshwater in dynamic landscapes and its fundamental role as the bloodstream of the biosphere. The current tension of these differences in worldview is exemplified through the recent development of modern aquaculture contrasted with examples of catchment-based stewardship of freshwater flows in dynamic landscapes. In particular, the social and institutional dimension of catchment management is highlighted and features of social-ecological systems for resilience building are presented. It is concluded that this broader view of freshwater provides the foundation for hydrosolidarity.

Apis mellifera larvae and prepupae infected with Ascosphaera apis were collected from colonies for use in the tests. The effects of 25 fungicides were determined on the following: white mummies, black mummies, a suspension of A. apis spores, a sus...

Sarcoidosis is a major cause of ocular or periocular inflammation. The pathogenesis of sarcoidosis is incompletely understood and diagnosis often requires a biopsy. To determine how gene expression in either orbital adipose tissue or the lacrimal...

Transfer of bloodstream-form Trypanosoma brucei variant 221a from calf serum to dog serum-based medium induces acute iron starvation, as the transferrin receptor (Tf-R) of variant 221a binds dog Tf poorly. We show here that transfer to dog serum i...
