Methodology for the estimation of land suitability for Atriplex L. [Amaranthaceae Juss. (s.l.)] cultivation in arid and semi-arid regions
(Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2019)
Atriplex includes species with multiple purposes such as biomass for energy production, for bioremediation of soils contaminated with metals, or soil conservation. In Chile, 29 Atriplex species have been recorded, of which ...
Environmental Effects of Irrigation in Arid and Semi-Arid Regions
(Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias, INIA, 2009)
Variation of morphological and chemical traits in sexes of the dioecious perennial grass Poa ligularis in relation to shrub cover and aridity in Patagonian ecosystems
(Springer Tokyo, 2016-01)
Sexes of dioecious species may have dimorphic responses to environmental variation due to differences in resource requirements and reproductive costs. We analyzed the effect of aridity/relative shrub cover, and vicinity ...
Latent heat loss and sweat gland histology of male goats in an equatorial semi-arid environment
The objective of this work was to quantify the heat loss by cutaneous evaporation of goats in an equatorial semi-arid environment. The latent heat loss from the body surfaces of these ten undefined breed goats was measured ...
Rodent middens, a new method for Quaternary research in arid zones of South America Paleomadrigueras de roedores, un nuevo método para el estudio del Cuaternario en zonas áridas de Sudamérica
In arid and semi-arid regions of South America, historical evidence for climate and vegetation change is scarce despite its importance for determining reference conditions and rates of natural variability in areas susceptible ...
Arid lands research: concept and experience.
(Separata de: REGIONAL WORKSHOP ON APPLIED AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH IN ARID AND SEMI-ARID AREAS. Santiago 14-15. SEPTIEMBRE 1978. 10P., 2015)
The role of bioclimatic architecture in the reduction of the emission of co2 in arid environments
(Trade Science, 2015-06)
The energy consumption for energy conditioning using natural/liquefied gas and electric power of the San JuanÂ s Metropolitan Area housing is studied. The study quantifies the savings that could be obtained if dwellings ...
Degradation and recovery processes in semi-arid patchy rangelands of northern Patagonia, Argentina
Vegetation in many arid and semiarid shrublands is frequently arranged in patches with high plant-cover (shrub patches) interspersed in a low-cover herbaceous matrix (inter-shrub areas). We hypothesized that (a) livestock ...
Using an integrated approach to assess the sediment quality of an estuary from the semi-arid coast of Brazil
The Jundiaí-Potengi Estuary (JPE) on the semi-arid coast of Brazil is influenced by multiple sources of pollution. Sediment quality at 10 JPE sites was evaluated through an integrated approach. Rainy and dry seasons were ...
