  • Depletion of Urban Green Space and Its Adverse Effect: A Case of Kumasi,
           the Former Garden City of West- Africa

    • Authors: Bernard Essel
      Pages: 1 - 10
      Abstract: Incorporating greenery has been a vital aspect of city planning. Landscape planning has been a vital aspect of city planning since the 19th Century. Since then, landscape planning has become a social necessity. Assessing the impact of the decline in urban green space is very important. Hence, using Kumasi as a case study largely fit due to the decline of the city’s urban green space. Based on this the study assessed the Landcover change between 2000 to 2010 and projected the Landcover/land use for 2020. It also analyzed the temperature recordings from 2000 to 2016. The result revealed that the city has lost 19.59 km2 and 33.39 km2 of forest and agriculture lands respectively. It was also projected that it will further decline to 0.7 km2 and 8.2 km2 respectively. Among the various Landcover classes, agriculture lands were the most delicate land use which suffers massive decline in acreage. Moreover, the adverse effect of the decline in green spaces has been evident in high temperatures, unattractive environment, and atmospheric pollution. In the last decade (2000-2010), the city’s temperature increased by 0.2oC but has dropped in the past six years (2010-2016). Nevertheless, it doesn’t suggest that the impact of the heat waves has reduced due to the reduction in temperature. Conversely, the impact has increased due to the absence of tree cover. Ultimately, Kumasi’s landscape has depleted and has lost a touch of vegetation, hence appropriate measure needs to be put in place.

  • Biodegradation of the Ametryne in Soil with Addition of Biofertilizer

    • Authors: Ana Paula Justiniano Régo, Cassiana Maria Reganhan Coneglian, Ederio Dino Bidoia
      Pages: 11 - 22
      Abstract: The intensified use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers has resulted in threats to the environment. Thus it is crucial to the implementation of sustainable alternatives in order to mitigate the negative effects. The biofertilizer brings this proposal, as it improves soil fertility and minimize environmental risks. The ametryne herbicide is used for weed control, very soluble in water, bringing risks to terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem. Thus, the objective of this work was to study the degradation of ametryne in soil with the addition of liquid biofertilizers. After application of biofertilizer in soil with ametryne, the microbial activity increased in 39.149%, in CO2 generation.In the assay for quantification of ametryne by HPLC-MS/MS there was reduction of concentration of the molecule in the presence soil sample contaminated with the herbicide. Thus, the biofertilizer was able to assist in soil fertility, increasing metabolic activity, resulting in degradation of the herbicide.

  • Back to the Source: Lionfish Imported into the United States via the
           Ornamental Aquarium Trade

    • Authors: Samantha D. Farquhar
      Pages: 23 - 31
      Abstract: Lionfish (Pterois miles and Pterois volitans) are known for their invasive success in the western Atlantic and Caribbean. With few marine fish invasions of similar magnitude being documented, the introduction of lionfish in this area has been deemed one of the fastest and most ecologically harmful introductions to date. Furthermore, this invasion is thought to be caused by negligent aquarists who released ornamental lionfish off the coast of Florida in 1985. Interestingly, lionfish are rare in abundance throughout their native waters of the Indo-Pacific and factors controlling lionfish’s native populations are little studied and not clearly defined. Through the analysis of the Marine Aquarium Biodiversity and Trade Flow database for the years 2008, 2009, and 2011, it was determined that approximately 137,723 lionfish were exported to the United States with Los Angeles, CA being the most popular point of entry. Of this total, 45.5% originated from the Philippines, 27.7% from Indonesia, and 14.5% from Kenya. Pterois volitans was exported from 15 different countries and on average 19 times more than Pterois miles which was exported only from three countries. This paper questions: 1) if the ornamental aquarium trade is affecting lionfish’s native populations and 2) if the lionfish imports could be leading to more introductions in non-native waters. Ultimately, this paper acts as a short communication identifying a need for further research and attention towards this
