The old-growth forests constitute a heritage of inestimable ecological and environmental value, as they represent small vestiges of how Europe's past primeval forest may have looked. The characteristics that distinguish an old-growth forest are typical of the final stages...
The study of my Bachelor's Thesis Work in Forestry and Environmental Sciences examined a mixed coniferous reforestation forest about forty years old, mainly consisting of white spruce (Abies alba Miller) and maritime pine (Pinus pinaster Aiton), located in Basilicata,...
Repaire the Earth with the help of 'beneficial' microbes, able to improve yield and quality of crops, but also to counteract the impoverishment of soils, reclaim contaminated land and reduce the use of water, fertilizers and pesticides. On the...
Forests are essential for our environment, society and economy. Beyond mitigating climate change and natural disasters, forests are also crucial ecosystems for biological diversity. However, these ecosystems serve other valuable functions, including soil conservation, water cycle regulation, carbon storage,...
The calabro-lucanian boundary area geologically represents a key zone for understanding the orogenetic processes in this Apenninic sector and, at a bigger scale, the Mediterranean geodynamic processes. The Pollino Massif is a National Park from 1993, characterised by 192.565...
An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.9 was recorded in Turkey on 6 February 2023 and affected a large area in south-eastern Anatolia, on the border with Syria. This event was replicated about 9 hours later by another tremor...
The geothermal energy is a possible source of provisions, using the inner heat of the Earth and reprenents an effective option Geothermal energy is a possible source of energy supply that exploits the Earth's internal heat and is, in...
Thousands of hectares of forest are burning in the Mediterranean Basin. In Italy and more in general in Europe, several wildfires lead to the destruction and decline of important forest heritages that host a wide variety of vegetal species,...
Researchers from the Institute of Applied Sciences and Intelligent Systems 'Eduardo Caianiello' of the National Research Council (CNR-Isasi), in collaboration with the Anton Dohrn Zoological Station in Naples (Szn), have developed an optical test for the detection of the...
Quantum mechanics has remained an enigma for physicists and philosophers worldwide for more than a century. Quantum teleportation or the famous entanglement, described by Einstein as 'uncanny action at a distance', are among the anti-intuitive effects predicted by this...
