Independent Aquatic Habitat Observation

Introduction Aquatic habitats play a critical ecological role by supporting a rich biodiversity of plants and animals that live in them and the surrounding ecosystems. The intrinsic and monetary value associated with aquatic habitats makes them important resources in every society. For instance, they are sources of clean water and food. Furthermore most aquatic habitats […]

Data Results

Statistics is a supportive measurement that has an objective to evaluate and enumerate a situation to find the most probable conclusions. It is, therefore, factual to state that statistics do not always evidence situations (Bartholomew, 2004). Rather, statistics provides an overview of the situation in a probability manner. The accuracy of collected data depends on […]

An Exploration of the Application of Environmental Ethical Thought to Animal Rights

Introduction The environment is a very essential element to all living organisms, including animals and human beings. It however requires proper care or handling in terms of conservation to ensure sustainability which in turn makes it conducive for growth as well as prosperity of all organisms that depend on it.

Mescaline Peyote

Peyote is a tiny plant that does not have a spine and it grows in arid and semi-arid areas and mostly on soils that are rich in limestone. Psychedelic found within Peyote is known as Mescaline and the drug is common in Texas and Mexico (Tuner, n.d). This paper focuses on the relevance of mescaline […]

Importance of Environmental Conservation for Public Health

We should not interfere with botanical diversity. The latter provides ethno-medicines and wild foods that are integral in sustaining public health. Human beings also require clean water and air (Golden et al. e41221). When the natural biodiversity is distorted through environmental pollution, access to clean water and high quality air is hampered. As a result, […]

Vegetation Recovery Using Remote Sensing Image In Yellowstone National Park after the Fires in 1988

Literature Review The Connection between Vegetation Recovery and Burning Severity of Fires Before analyzing the images produced by means of remote sensing, it is necessary to analyze the aspects and criteria according to which the images can detect various patterns of vegetation recovery after the fire. Specifically, much research has been done on the analysis […]

Citizen Participation in Global Environmental Governance

Numerous scientists provide the global community with the latest data on the current environmental situation. However, the involvement of common people in the process aimed at reducing the risks of environmental crisis is still very low. Such situation is considered an obstacle on the way to promoting environmental issues. Citizen Participation in Global Environmental Governance […]

Legal and Political Factors of Renewable Energy Development

Government policies that support renewable energy development Bolinger & Poter (2010, p.4) argue that there are several barriers such as subsides for conventional forms of energy, financing risks and technology prejudice which hinder the development process of renewable energy. To overcome these barriers the government has put in place various regulations and policies to facilitate […]

Probability Concepts and Applications

Rationale The utilization of probability concepts is a manner of articulating knowledge or conviction that an incident will happen or has taken place (Anderson, Sweeney, Williams, Camm, & Cochran, 2013). Such concepts have been offered a precise mathematical significance in the probability theory, which is employed broadly in fields such as statistics, management, mathematics, and […]

How Biodiversity is Threatened by Human Activity

The human species have gone extinct since the beginning of life, but human fingerprint is a useful marker that differentiates current and past extinctions. Environmental factors have been shown to cause human threats with regard to biodiversity (Duffy 440). Human species are threatened when they come under pressure from different factors in the environment. It […]

Health Crisis

There are myriads of negative health impacts that millions of people will continue to face as a consequence of climate change. The ill effects of global warming should be addressed with urgency. The earth’s climate is being affected by the disruptive human activities. It is indeed true that the emission of greenhouse gases has immensely […]

Climate Change

It is true that the impacts of climate change are being felt across the globe. The degree of vulnerability has also risen to alarming levels. For instance, pastoralists and subsistence farmers in sub-Saharan Africa are among the worst hit populations in the continent since they completely depend on the weather output for survival. Worse still, […]

Logistic Regression

Introduction The appropriate regression analysis for task 6 is the binomial logistic regression. According to Norris, Qureshi, Howitt, and Cramer (2014), binomial logistic regression applies when the dependent variable is dichotomous. In this case, the dependent variable, condom use, has only two outcomes, namely, condom used and condom not used. The present analysis requires hierarchical […]

Soil and Groundwater Contamination in the UAE: The Other Side of the Technological Progress

Introduction Despite a significant progress, which the United Arab Emirates have made over the past few years in terms of technology (Panambunan-Ferse & Breiter 2013), the state authorities seem to have been defaulting on the development of tools for disposing of e-waste. According to the recent news report, the situation regarding e-waste in the UAE […]

Water Resources Deterioration Consequences in the GCC Countries

Introduction The deterioration of water resources is a significant social, economic, and environmental problem in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Thus, water supplies are of the critical importance for these arid countries because of their role in meeting the populations’ demands for the fresh water, development of agriculture and irrigation systems, and the growth […]
