Planting Desert Sites, David A. Bainbridge Jan 2013

Planting Desert Sites, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Desert planting requires great care in preparing plants, handling plants and planting. With proper consideration of soil, climate and water availability plants can be established despite severe conditions of high temperatures, high winds, herbivory and lack of water.


Site Assessment For Environmental Restoration, David A. Bainbridge Jan 2013

Site Assessment For Environmental Restoration, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Restoring degraded desert ecosystems is challenging but it can be done. The first key step is understanding the site history and understanding the disturbance and current site conditions. With this information the appropriate steps can be taken to improve the site ecosystem function and structure.


Container Plants For Desert Restoration, David A. Bainbridge Jan 2013

Container Plants For Desert Restoration, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Container planting is essential for most desert restoration work because direct seeding is rarely successful. The containers best suited for desert planting are often taller (deeper) to facilitate root development. Fertilizer management, inoculation, irrigation and pruning can be used to maximize root growth with minimal shoot development.

Straw Bale Building, David A. Bainbridge Jan 2012

Straw Bale Building, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Straw bale building offers many advantages, high insulation value, thermal mass of interior plaster, resistance to fire, and low embodied resource cost. Super-insulation becomes possible at affordable prices with straw bales. Used with great success for both residential and commercial building projects.


True Cost Accounting For A Post-Autistic Economy, David A. Bainbridge Jan 2012

True Cost Accounting For A Post-Autistic Economy, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

True cost accounting attempts to include the full cost of products and services in economic consideration. This brings what are often categorized as "external costs" into pricing. The failure to include these social and environmental costs has led to many of our worst crises -- from global climate change to ill health and resource depletion.

A Review Of International Best Practice In E-Governmentsome Lessons For New Adopters, Deogratias Harorimana Sr

Dr Deogratias Harorimana

Efficient bureaucratic processes as essential to attract and retain investment, as well as promote SME growth. The e_Gov is one of many ways emerging economies have used to streamline public service delivery and create a freindly and conducive atmosphere for business -both MNC and SMEs. This presentation provide an overview of some of the World's most recent case examples on the successful design-plan-implementation of eGov to build a strong basis to attract investment and deliver seamless essential services to Citizens.


Rebound In Us Productive Sectors, Harry D. Saunders Jun 2011

Rebound In Us Productive Sectors, Harry D. Saunders

Harry D. Saunders

This presentation describes rebound measurements in the US economy, the dominance of "embedded energy" (production-side energy use), and the economic costs of polices to mitigate rebound effects.


Passive Solar Design, David A. Bainbridge Jan 2011

Passive Solar Design, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Passive solar architecture can provide heating, cooling, ventilation and daylighting by using the sun and microclimate resources. Building energy consumption can be cut 80-90% at no increase in building cost by using integrated design principles.


Non-Senescence In Neoclassical Growth Theory, Harry D. Saunders May 2010

Non-Senescence In Neoclassical Growth Theory, Harry D. Saunders

Harry D. Saunders

This presentation describes research showing that non-senescent genotypes can dominate senescent ones under certain evolutionary conditions.


Alternative "More Efficient" Irrigation Systems, David A. Bainbridge Jan 2010

Alternative "More Efficient" Irrigation Systems, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Many traditional irrigation systems work well for ecological restoration projects. These demand responsive systems are very water efficient and robust and have proved themselves in the most extreme desert conditions.

Ecocomposite Materials, David A. Bainbridge Jan 2001

Ecocomposite Materials, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Ecocomposite materials combine fibers, resins and natural materials for added strength and durability. These materials can be fully and easily recycled by nature.


Nitrogen Pollution, David A. Bainbridge Jan 2001

Nitrogen Pollution, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Nitrogen pollution is an severe problem in many ecosystems. It is rarely recognized or appreciated on land because the effects can be slow -- but they can be catastrophic. Native species are driven out by high response weeds and invasive species that may totally disrupt ecosystem structure and function.


Soil Treatment For Restoration Projects, David A. Bainbridge Jan 1999

Soil Treatment For Restoration Projects, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Soil treatment is a critical step in restoration projects. When soil problems are ignored restoration projects fail. Erosion, compaction, limited infiltration and other problems can make a site very different from its historic function and structure. Treatment can be done with equipment or by hand and will greatly improve chances for success.


Forest Gardens Of The Maya, David A. Bainbridge Jan 1988

Forest Gardens Of The Maya, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

The lowland Maya supported very high populations in an area with limited water and soil. Much can be learned from studying their sophisticated management practices. Forest gardens and agroforestry helped provide key nutrients, materials, and inputs for improved soil.
