A few decades ago, the surface waterbodies in Hanoi, Vietnam, were an important source of water for various usages. However, because of the rapid global changes, the current status of most of the river system is very critical from the environmental, aesthetic and commercial usage points of view. Henceforth, this research work focused on assessing...

In Managing Socio-ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes for Sustainable Communities in Asia
This chapter contributes to improve an understanding of the effectiveness of different biodiversity science-policy interfaces (SPIs), which play a vital role in navigating policies and actions with sound evidence base. The single comprehensive study that was found to exist, assessed SPIs in terms of their ‘features’—goals, structure, process...

In this volume, we seek to contribute to the understanding of how different kinds of values, which have been called “multiple values of nature” (we will use the initialism “MVN” for the purposes of this volume), are provided and maintained through sustainable use of biodiversity in socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS). The...

The drastic transformation in land use from natural forest to acacia and oil palm plantations in tropical regions is an issue of some controversy. The influence of land-use change on nutrient cycling is not fully understood. In this case, stream water chemistry is one of the most useful indexes of the nutrient status of an ecosystem. We...
