Questions related to Global Change Ecology
The SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic has, in some respects, through interrupted chains of international supply and supply logistics, reduced the scale of economic globalisation processes. On the other hand, the need for the development of remote Internet communication has increased due to the introduction of home quarantine periods and lockdowns imposed on selected sectors of the economy in 2020. Consequently, the scale of internetisation and digitalisation of various aspects of business conducted by companies and enterprises has increased. As a result of the growth of the Internet, the importance of information globalisation has increased in terms of remote Internet-based communication. In a multi-year perspective, the importance of environmental and pro-climate globalisation may increase in the future. In view of the above, how else will globalisation processes change in this decade of the 21st century? Will the current energy crisis, the unfolding food crisis, the migration crisis

•The first 7 SDGs is an extension of MDGs
•Second group is inclusiveness (jobs, infrastructure industrialization, and distribution).It includes goals 8, 9, and 10
•The third group is on sustainability and urbanization that covers the last seven goals

What kind of scientific research dominate in the field of Sustainable pro-ecological development of the global economy?
Probably the future of humanity depends on the next decade. If, over the next few years, renewable energy sources replacing traditional energy based on the burning of minerals are developed on a massive scale, it might be possible for humankind to avoid a climatic catastrophe in the 21st century. The international climate agreement that currently (December 2018) concluded in Katowice in Poland may be a late and insufficient agreement, because most countries do not intend to develop high-budget projects for the construction and development of power plants based on renewable energy sources. In addition, changes in the automotive industry, changes leading to the development of motorization in the direction of electromobility are too slow. The problem is serious because it concerns the future of all humanity in the perspective of the next two to three generations, yet the necessary changes and reforms in the implementation of economic principles of sustainable pro-ecological development are too slow. With the current pace of changes, there may be a shortage of time to implement the necessary pro-ecological undertakings, and then the problem of global warming will become an irreversible process and will constantly accelerate!

How does global warming affect the economy?
Global warming affects the geography within which the global economy operates. It changes growth zones. It changes shorelines. It changes the places where humans will feel comfortable living. In addition, if humans actually decide to do anything about it, it will change the way industry and people use fossil fuels.
From January 2014 to December 2016, I conducted monthly field trips in three different areas of Dhaka city, Bangladesh to investigate how butterflies survive in an inner-city habitat. I have found that the species richness (I did not count the species abundance) is declining with time.
Presently, I have:
* monthly species-specific data of three continuous years (36 continuous months) of the three different areas
* Four environmental variables (temperature, rainfall, humidity and sunshine hours)
* Pollution level
* IUCN Red List status
* Land-use analysis of these three different areas
Now, I am really confused considering the proper way to link these pieces of information! Could anyone of you please share some ideas?
I'm looking for community-level datasets older than 20 years, at the landscape spatial-scale (i.e. multiple survey points in space), for any taxa or region.
If you know any dataset with these characteristics, please list it in the answers (hopefully with a related reference or website).
Thank a lot for your help,
All the best for 2018!
Thesis statements were given to us in our ecology class. One of which included the possible need to terraform a non-habitable planet due to drastic effects of human manipulation in natural occurrences of the environment. Given the fact that the earth's environment, which sustains life, should be followed, is it safe to say that terraforming might be a solution to the now depleting earth? Also, are there calculations as to which we will already be able to determine if terraforming is the only option?
As in the subject. I am looking for papers that look for the effects of nitrogen deposition on seeds/acorns chemial content/quality. I found a lot of papers on other tissues (like increase in N foliar concentration, phloem) but it seems like those on seeds are scare.
Several tropical island in the Lesser Antilles are experiencing massive sargassum arrivals on their coast. They consist in large dense rafts of algae that impact heavily seagrass through light interception, dissolved oxygen decrease, H2S emissions.
Some of these rafts reach coastal mangrove forests. I am wondering if they may impact significantly mangrove ecosystem functioning ? Did you observe such impacts in other parts of the world (Florida, Louisiana, elsewhere) ? What part of the ecosystem is / could be impacted e.g., mangrove trees, crabs, epibionts, birds, ?
It is known that woody encroachment is occurring in grassland worldwide. I want to know which factors will affect this process, please give me some relating references.
