• Can Bacterial Endophytes Be Used as a Promising Bio-Inoculant for the Mitigation of Salinity Stress in Crop Plants?—A Global Meta-Analysis of the Last Decade (2011–2020) ﻿

(MDPI, 2021)
Soil salinity is a major problem affecting crop production worldwide. Lately, there have been great research efforts in increasing the salt tolerance of plants through the inoculation of plant growth-promoting endophytic ...
• Can Social Innovation Make a Change in European and Mediterranean Marginalized Areas? Social Innovation Impact Assessment in Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry, and Rural Development ﻿

(MDPI, 2021-02-08)
Social innovation (SI) impacts are long-term changes that affect different dimensions of territorial capital (i.e., economy, society, environment, governance) for the territory in which SI occurs. Yet, systematic empirical ...
• Can the world afford to ignore biotechnology solutions that address food insecurity? ﻿

(Springer Verlag, 2013)
Genetically engineered (GE) crops can be used as part of a combined strategy to address food insecurity, which is defined as a lack of sustainable access to safe and nutritious food. In this article, we discuss the ...
• Carbon footprint of cropping systems with grain legumes and cover crops: A case-study in SW France ﻿

(Elsevier, 2018-09-12)
Agriculture contributes to a significant proportion of global emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) but can also participate in climate change mitigation. The introduction of legumes in crop rotations reduces the dependence ...
• Carbon uptake and water use in woodlands and forests in southern Australia during an extreme heat wave event in the “Angry Summer” of 2012/2013 ﻿

(Copernicus Publications, 2016)
As a result of climate change warmer temperatures are projected through the 21st century and are already increasing above modelled predictions. Apart from increases in the mean, warm/hot temperature extremes are expected ...
• Carbon-nitrogen interactions in European forests and semi-natural vegetation – Part 1: Fluxes and budgets of carbon, nitrogen and greenhouse gases from ecosystem monitoring and modelling ﻿

(European Geosciences Union; Copernicus Publications, 2020-03-26)
The impact of atmospheric reactive nitrogen (Nr) deposition on carbon (C) sequestration in soils and biomass of unfertilized, natural, semi-natural and forest ecosystems has been much debated. Many previous results of this ...
• Carotenoid-enriched transgenic corn delivers bioavailable carotenoids to poultry and protects them against coccidiosis ﻿

(John Wiley & Sons; Wiley-Blackwell, 2015)
Carotenoids are health-promoting organic molecules that act as antioxidants and essential nutrients. We show that chickens raised on a diet enriched with an engineered corn variety containing very high levels of four key ...
• Carotenoid-enriched Transgenid Corn in Poultry Nutrition ﻿

(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 2015-05-01)
Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) is one of the most important micronutrient deficiencies globally. It is prevalent throughout the world, but it is particularly severe in Africa and South-East Asia. The main underlying cause of ...
• Cathodic Protection Using Aluminum Metal in Chloride Molten Salts as Thermal Energy Storage Material in Concentrating Solar Power Plants ﻿

(MDPI, 2020)
The new generation of concentrated solar power (CSP) plants to be developed presents a great challenge related to the increase in maximum operating temperature since molten salt CSP technologies require alternative salt ...
• Center cyclicity of a family of quartic polynomial differential system ﻿

(Springer, 2016-09-01)
In this paper we study the cyclicity of the centers of the quartic polynomial family written in complex notation as z = i z + z z (A z^2 + B z z + C z^2 ), where A,B,C. We give an upper bound for the cyclicity of any ...
• Centers and isochronous centers for generalized quintic systems ﻿

(Elsevier, 2015)
In this paper we classify the centers and the isochronous centers of certain polynomial differential systems in R2 of degree d≥5 odd that in complex notation are ż=(λ+i)z(zz̄)d−52(Az5+Bz4z̄+Cz3z̄2+Dz2z̄3+Ezz̄4+Fz̄5), ...
• Centers for a class of generalized quintic polynomial differential systems ﻿

(Elsevier, 2014)
We classify the centers of the polynomial differential systems in R2 of degree d ≥ 5 odd that in complex notation writes as z˙ = iz + (zz¯)d−5/2 (Az5 + Bz4z¯ + Cz3z¯2 + Dz2z¯3 + Ezz¯4 + Fz¯5), where A, B, C, D, E, F ∈ C ...
• Centers for generalized quintic polynomial differential systems ﻿

• Central sleep apnoea is related to the severity and short-term prognosis of acute coronary syndrome ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Objective To evaluate the relation of central sleep apnoea (CSA) to the severity and short-term prognosis of patients who experience acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Methods Observational study with cross-sectional and ...
• Cereal-legume mixtures increase net CO2 uptake in a forage system of the Eastern Pyrenees ﻿

(European Geosciences Union; Copernicus Publications, 2020-06-11)
Forage systems are the major land use, and provide essential resources for animal feeding. Assessing the influence of forage species on net ecosystem CO2 exchange (NEE) is key to develop management strategies that can help ...
• Changes in global terrestrial live biomass over the 21st century ﻿

(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2021-07)
