Marked for Life: Epigenetic Effects of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals

17-Oct-2017 | Miriam N. Jacobs; Emma L. Marczylo; Carlos Guerrero-Bosagna; Joëlle Rüegg, Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2017

The presence of human-made chemical contaminants in the environment has increased rapidly during the past 70 years. Harmful effects of such contaminants were first reported in the late 1950s in wildlife and later in humans. These effects are predominantly induced by endocrine disrupting chemicals ...

Attribution of Weather and Climate Events

17-Oct-2017 | Friederike E.L. Otto, Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2017

Within the past decade, the attribution of extreme weather and climate events has emerged from a theoretical possibility into a subfield of climate science in its own right, providing scientific evidence on the role of anthropogenic climate change in individual extreme weather events, on a ...

Legacies of Historical Human Activities in Arctic Woody Plant Dynamics

17-Oct-2017 | Signe Normand; Toke T. Høye; Bruce C. Forbes; Joseph J. Bowden; Althea L. Davies; Bent V. Odgaard; Felix Riede; Jens ..., Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2017

Recent changes in arctic vegetation might not be driven by climate change alone. Legacies of human activities have received little attention as a contributing factor. We examine the extent to which traditional human activities (hunting, herding, fire, wood extraction, and agriculture) have had ...

Smallholder Agriculture and Climate Change

17-Oct-2017 | Avery S. Cohn; Peter Newton; Juliana D.B. Gil; Laura Kuhl; Leah Samberg; Vincent Ricciardi; Jessica R. Manly; Sarah ..., Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2017

Hundreds of millions of the world's poorest people directly depend on smallholder farming systems. These people now face a changing climate and associated societal responses. We use mapping and a literature review to juxtapose the climate fate of smallholder systems with that of other ...

Toward the Next Generation of Assessment

17-Oct-2017 | Katharine J. Mach; Christopher B. Field, Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2017

Through integrative assessment, experts evaluate the state of knowledge on complex problems relevant to societies. In this review, we take stock of recent advances and challenges, rooting our analysis in climate change assessment. In particular, we consider four priorities in assessment: (a) ...

The Impact of Systematic Conservation Planning

17-Oct-2017 | Emma J. McIntosh; Robert L. Pressey; Samuel Lloyd; Robert J. Smith; Richard Grenyer, Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2017

Systematic conservation planning (SCP) is a rapidly advancing discipline aimed at providing decision support for choices between alternate conservation actions. SCP is often used to inform choices about areas to protect, in order to optimize outcomes for biodiversity while minimizing societal ...

The Future Promise of Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) Integration: A Sociotechnical Review and Research Agenda

17-Oct-2017 | Benjamin K. Sovacool; Jonn Axsen; Willett Kempton, Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2017

Vehicle-grid integration (VGI) describes various approaches to link the electric power system and the transportation system in ways that may benefit both. VGI includes systems that treat plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) as controllable load with a unidirectional flow of electricity, such as ...

Degradation and Recovery in Changing Forest Landscapes: A Multiscale Conceptual Framework

17-Oct-2017 | Jaboury Ghazoul; Robin Chazdon, Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2017

Conceptual confusion revolves around how to define, assess, and overcome land, ecosystem, and landscape degradation. Common elements link degradation and recovery processes, offering ways to advance local, regional, and global initiatives to reduce degradation and promote the recovery of ...

Plastic as a Persistent Marine Pollutant

17-Oct-2017 | Boris Worm; Heike K. Lotze; Isabelle Jubinville; Chris Wilcox; Jenna Jambeck, Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2017

Synthetic organic polymers—or plastics—did not enter widespread use until the 1950s. By 2015, global production had increased to 322 million metric tons (Mt) year−1, which approaches the total weight of the human population produced in plastic every year. Approximately half is used for packaging ...
