Questions related to Territoriality
I am researching the peculiarities of the planning organization of the territory of the "innovation city".
Interested in your opinion about the following question. Are "innovative city" and "smart city" the same thing from a planning point of view?
A question about the reason behind the predominance of spider nevi along the SVC's territory, exclusively!
I am working on research related to planning for territorial resilience. I am looking forward to your contribution through discussion on recent planning and research initiatives, citizens' and communities' active engagement and or leadership in such initiatives. How do you see the nexuses and to what extent current planning are addressing these nexuses?
I am focusing a research about the role of luxury as whole, -not only of luxury brands or operators- in recent urban trasformations. Did someone face off the same problem? What about processes of city branding and urban marketing? and the effect on the city/territory?
I am running for the election for the central area of Milano. I based my program on the immaterial needs among which there is hapiness. My vision is to transform the area in a Hapiness Lab. I am looking for examples of project whose goals is the rise of hapiness in a territory.
I am studying smart growth principles and indicators and how this movement can help our cities.
If you work in territorial development, I invite you to fill this survey. Your views and opinion are precious, and your co-operation would be appreciated.
Participation in this study is entirely voluntary. All the information you provide will be kept strictly confidential and will be used only for academic research purposes.
Thank you very much.
Iraq is great country since old civilization and culture,and if we go to the old civilization . q is the name of the state that currently partially encompasses the territory of the civilization of ancient Mesopotamia. This civilization came into being between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. These rivers flow into the Persian Gulf, through the State of Iraq. The Hashemite Kingdom of Iraq, also known as Mandatory Iraq in its early phase, was established by the Anglo-Iraqi treaty of 1922 resulting from the 1920 Iraqi revolt against British rule. It is centered in Lower Mesopotamia (corresponding to historical Babylonia, later also known as ʿIrāq-i ʿArab) but also includes part of Upper Mesopotamia and of the Syrian Desert and the Arabian Desert. The history of this area has witnessed some of the world's earliest writing, literature, sciences, mathematics, laws and philosophies; hence its common epithet, the Cradle of Civilization. so why Iraq is the old country of civilization?
There are multiple problems in determining what happened when Aretas's ethnarch reportedly attempted to capture the Apostle Paul. These include that an army that far into Roman territory would not have been tolerated and even though Syrian legions were occupied with Parthia, Egyptian legions would have been available. Further, evidence from Moses of Chorene and numismatics imply that Antipas attacked Aretas rather than the other way around as reported by Josephus which is required to even suggest Nabataean troops that far into Roman territory. And given that while dealing with Parthia, Vitellius found the time to deal with other regional problems, it makes it highly unlikely that Aretas did anything to anger Rome. So might the ehtnarch have been appointed by Vitellius, and thus implying that the Apostle Paul was on a Roman watch list as early as 37 or 38 CE.
I am looking for approaches and tools applied in European contexts for the evaluation of policies with a specific focus on territorial cohesion and local-regional development.
Do you have best practices suggestions?
What is intended with this question is not only to answer it with a simple argument, but everything to the contrary. Contribute everything we know about immigration, positive and negative aspects that influence our society.
Spain is a country where immigration in recent decades has increased considerably. This is due to the territorial position of the country. It is not only due to this space, but also to the standard of living that we have in Spain compared to other countries.
I have to say that many Spanish citizens have found themselves in the situation of having to emigrate to other countries in search of economic and labor survival, so we can say that immigration to other countries is potentiated in the labor aspect.
I'm working in the broad field of political ecology and I'm currently co-authoring an article about the social-ecological consequences of the digital economy (material anchor, territorialities, conflicts). I'm therefore looking for literature about the digital economy I might have missed so far. I'm pleased about all suggestions. Many thanks in advance!
This is new territory for me. I'm a mammalian cell culture person but recent research has driven me into using new organisms. I have started working with Anabaena (D flos aquae) and after observation under a microscope and what I have seen I know they grow in filaments but authors that have worked on this organism mention the cells are plated often 10^4 cells/m without specifics of how the cell counts are carried out or estimated. The problem is how do you count these cells in the filament which is very tiny under the microscope to estimate the number of cells in 1 ml. The question may sound stupid but it's just new territory for me as I have said. Thanks in advance for your contributions.
I will investigate the relationship of the most representative species in the high, medium and low river basin, part niches and thus shape their territorial ability to identify specific areas of conservation.
When we consider referencing of academic writings, journal articles and books are widely cited. However, conference proceedings get less attention, yet attending a conference is a costly, time consuming and a rigorous process. However, conferences are much popular in academic circles despite less attention received to conference proceedings and the hardships involved.
Therefore, the positives of attending conferences possibly going beyond publishing articles.
So, what about you? What do you think of the pros and cons of attending conferences and publishing your scientific articles in conference proceedings? Do you see any positives or negatives?
These methods are necessary for my scientific work. If you have any suggestions on this topic, please advise me.
Social Innovation courses are often declined in a way that is often attached to social entrepreneurship or design methods (i.e. theory of change). Can you suggest any material on how to draw a course for MSc students combining social innovation theories/methodologies with territorial development policy and/or urban studies?
I looked for the daily number of samples being tested in "Our World in Data" "R" or "WHO"'s publicly available databases. I got a maximum of 80 countries data from "Our World in Data". However, WHO reported COVID-19 from more than 200 countries or territories and I need all the country's COVID-19 tests data. Are there any publicly available sources? Suggestions for the sources of the individual countries are very welcome.
The selection of indicators in quantitative territorial studies on social vulnerability and disaster risk reduction is a crucial issue. What or how do we reflect the research methodology in order to ensure that the selection of indicators of social vulnerability and DRR can contextualize the study area?
I need shapefile for all 700+ districts of India. From where I can find the India shapefile with all districts. Also, suggest how to get the latest India shapefile with all state and union territories (28 states + 9 UT's).
I would like to study the new transformation of EU territory and I think the question of smart cities and their new juridical and social approach as regards the new fragmentation of national territories and the lack of the uniform decisions just like the multilevel guarantees contribute to change the importance of the territory ad juridical category.
I think it is a phenomenon that come to the globalism and new form of penetrating of the economy on juridical domain.
I'm drafting my PhD research proposal and my main objective is to determine if the different territorial planning instruments in Mexico (NPA, Urban Plan, Ecological & Marine Ordering) have been able to mantain Ecosystem Services, specifically on coasts with high touristic development (Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo and Los Cabos, Baja California Sur).
We are a network of scholars and policy experts working on EU Cohesion Policy across Europe, gathered thanks to the support of the Regional Studies Association (RSA). For many years, we have engaged in debates about EU Cohesion Policy. In this difficult time, we want to contribute by proposing some evidence-based recommendations on how Europe is responding to the Coronavirus / Covid-19 crisis.
- Cohesion Policy has proven to be an effective policy tool to address many of the most recent crises, such as the refugee crisis (2014-15), the earthquakes in central Italy (2009 and 2016) and now the coronavirus/covid-19 crisis (2020).This shows that Cohesion Policy can rapidly respond to emergency situations. However, the question is whether Cohesion Policy should be the main instrument to face these crises, when it is intended to address long-term objectives.
- Despite its flexibility, the primary goal of EU Cohesion Policy is to promote social, economic and territorial cohesion, i.e. investments in less developed European regions, support for regional and urban competitiveness, social integration and environmental sustainability, and cross-border cooperation. While we welcome the responsiveness of European decision-makers to this crisis through the reallocation and distribution of financial resources, Cohesion Policy should be kept as a separate policy tool with adequate resources to achieve its intended objectives. The EU needs flexible, effective instruments, initiatives and mechanisms to more efficiently and rapidly face future crises in addition to Cohesion Policy.
- Cohesion Policy addresses spatial inequalities, especially in peripheral regions, territories affected by the urban-rural divide, cross-border regions and cities. Spatial inequalities in healthcare sectors have been only marginally addressed. However, if the policy scope is extended to more explicitly address health policy objectives, then Cohesion Policy would need a substantial increase in resource and funding to avoid a substitution effect, whereby support for other fundamental investments aimed at preserving and improving quality of life across Europe is reduced.
- Thanks to Cohesion Policy’s technical assistance, investment in human capital and support to the digital agenda, European regional and local public administrations have improved their capacity to react to crises. Cohesion Policy has contributed to building administrative capacities in a context of multilevel governance, despite significant public sector disinvestment in the last decades.
- Cohesion policy also supports businesses. The current health crisis is having and will have a devastating economic impact. Cohesion Policy should be used to support investments in firms located in the most affected areas to promote a geographically balanced economic recovery. Without undermining its geographical scope, Cohesion Policy can be an effective instrument to support economic recovery, in addition to other EU financial support tools such as European Stability Mechanism or, eventually, the much debated “coronabonds”.
- Cohesion Policy has been an effective instrument to address social issues such as poverty, social deprivation and marginalisation. The current crisis is hitting harder the most vulnerable. For these reasons, the social dimensions of Cohesion Policy should be further reinforced to support recovery and promote new place-based solutions.
We hope our contribution can help to move forward the debate, especially in the recovery from this crisis that will be needed for the whole European Union.

Usually, the question is how to involve Civil Society in projects being designed and executed by local Authorities or Government Agencies. However, what to do when the initiatives come from the civil society - from the bottom? What to do, knowing that civil society comprises local populations living in the limit of a territory which is run by national rules and is impacted by the interest of private groups?

Many industrialized countries have sought to develop a framework of opportunities and various resources, organized to cause catalysts of economic forces. In countries where this establishment has not done, what is happening?
The territory of the Northern Caucasus is characterized by a great variety of natural conditions and, as a result, natural landscapes. A distinctive feature of this territory is the peculiar structure of altitudinal zonality, caused by the existence of local systems of the intermontane hollows and ridges bordering its mountain structure. The insignificant height of ridges in combination with a peculiar climate lead to the formation of a spatial structure of landscapes which differs both from the adjacent plains and from higher parts of the mountain structure. Such transitional areas are called ecotones and are highlighted as a separate category of natural territorial complex. Most authors of the landscape maps of the Northern Caucasus territory, distinguish only two higher classifying landscapes units (classes) here — plains and mountains, which correspond to relief megaforms. However, there is a transitional zone from the plain to the mountains within the Northern Caucasus, which was called "foothill landscapes". A complex of the quantitative and qualitative parameters in combination with significant spatial mosaic of locations and temporal variability of climatic conditions form peculiar features of the low-mountain foothill landscapes of the Northern Caucasus, which should be assigned into a peculiar classification unit.
I am doing a territorial negociation simulation for installation of gravel extraction on a rather "good" agricultural land. The investor insists to have this land and claims that they can move the soil entirely to a different field where the quality of the agricultural land is rather poor. I haven't found anything on this. Is it actually feasible?
Cultural Heritage, Territory Innovation and Development are crucial research topics nowadays. And this is evidence worldwide.

Among the 20 most unequal countries in the world, 8 including Haiti, come from Latin America (IDB, 2019). How to reduce inequalities? Can the study of territories help to better identify and reduce disparities? Personally, I think that yes, through the living areas that make them up, territories are an important part in understanding the phenomenon of inequality and building adequate solutions.
Territorial dynamics develop according to the production and exchange opportunities between economic actors, institutions, associations, in a territory and even outside this territory. Money occupies a dominant place in the configuration of trade. What can happen when it is lacking in territory?
Consider that the communities disagree, and the government requires economic resources for works and projects (health, housing, roads...).
I am trying to calculate the LST of three land types existing in permafrost regions of NWT, I am using Landsat-8.
Is the thermal imagery of Landsat-8 a good source for deriving LST of a local scale?
I was wondering,
which time of year is the best time for this process?
In the scientific study of infections, the species-reservoirs concept dominates. Traditionally, the concept of the permanent presence of infection in nature is associated with E.N. Pavlovsky. In canonical form, the concept of landscape epidemiology was outlined in the late 1930s but developed into a systematic method in the 1960’s that is the accepted form today. The concept has not received a consistent theoretical development and perhaps this is not accidental because the fundamental idea associated with the presence of species-reservoirs in nature and the permanent presence of infection inevitably leads to the fact that the fundamental thesis is categorically unconfirmed. In fact, there is substantial information refuting the basic premise that underlines this approach as a convenient hypothesis to create the binding manifestations of the pathogenic properties of microorganisms to the territories or what is known as landscape epidemiology. Why is the scientific community so tenaciously holding on to the species-reservoirs concept?
I am looking for informations and experiences regarding the dawn calling activity of Eagle Owls in the context of a special conservation problem in Austria.
In relevant papers it is regularly mentioned that the calling activity of male Eagle Owls (song) in the dawn phase is comparable to the dusk phase. However, although there is an impressive amount of information about the dusk phase especially from Spain and France, I could not find precise information regarding the dawn phase (still, most surveys are based on dusk calling). In particular, I would need information about, e. g., start and end of calling before and after sunrise, call duration, detectability of existing territories which would help me to make a decision if to include controls in the dawn phase in addition to the dusk phase.
Many thanks in advance!
I am working with some human WT and receptor KO IPSCs (mono & bi-allelic clones). The knock-outs have been engineered in a core facility by means of single bp deletions. Having expanded & differentiated these IPSCs, I now need to confirm that the KO has actually been effective c/w WT and because only a single bp deletion causing a frame shift, qPCR won't be helpful in demonstrating this.
(Sanger sequencing maybe the only option?)
I am therefore using FACS and WB to demonstrate absence or non-functional translated protein at protein level. I have a number of options of antibodies to try however I would like to use an online genetics tool/program to find out which specific epitopes each antibody binds to if this is possible? I have the information on which Exon, CRISPR sequences, base number, start codon etc but in very unfamiliar territory if anyone can help point me in the right direction and I'm a bit overwhelmed by the options/tools available!
Many thanks in advance
Having searched for recent articles on renewable energy research in African countries, I think I have found a research gap: There are very few articles if none discussing the funding of this research field at African institutions. We only found either a number of economic papers discussing the funding of renewable energy infrastructure in African countries or a few studies on the networks of renewable energy research that limit themselves to the OECD territories or sometimes refer to the BRICS-community.
Are you aware of research on this topic? Could you share any national reports from African governments, regional comparisons and other literature on this topic?
Thanks for any hints!
With best regards,
I carry out a research that allows me to understan which social and health services are offered to the population (children, youn people, adults, the disabled, the elderly) and whether the needs of these targets are met-
I am working with ArcGIS. I have several vectorial data of a territory such as Geology, Land Use, Landslide and flood susceptibility map (polygon data), InSAR data, Earthquakes (Point data), river and road network (line data) and raster data such as DTM, Slope, Aspect.
In order to detect and then predict critical road sections on my studied road network I have to assign all these feature to the road network itself. The aim is to build a database that I can use to develop some predictive models (such as Support Vector Machines or other Machine Learning Algorithm).
Dividing the road network in several fixed-length sections, and then assign the features, does not work, because I can not take into account the spatial heterogeneity of the feature inside the homogeneous sections (that are not "so homogeneous").
I am thinking on sectioning the road network each time a certain feature changes its value (dynamic segmentation), or to build a cell-based database (so convert all the data into raster, and then overlay these resulting raster file).
Is these a good ideas? Have you got other ideas or suggestion?
Dear Professors and students Researchers, please i want an article, book or any reference on the subject of " innovation territorial and its role in the development of mountain areas or fragile marginal areas."

We need academic experiences that provide theoretical and methodological criteria regarding the management of development in the territories and the role of sociologists in that management
I am currently doing a long-term study on territorial occupancy in woodpeckers using color bands. I am interested in using the data for simply estimating annual survival of adult territory owners (will be using Program Mark). My data is very basic, not too many covariates other than sex right now, but I would like to have some papers to read regarding this topic. Trapping and banding takes place every year, so new marked birds are entering the population yearly. Also, 99% of marked birds are verified visually on territories rather than recaptures. Analyzing data is probably a few years out as we look to keep the study going, but I wanted to get a head start reading up on some examples and perhaps do some preliminary estimates. Thanks in advance for any helpful information.
West Malaysia consists of 11 states and 2 Federal territories. I propose to conduct an epidemiological study in 6 states. I want to show the selected states on a Map. Please I need help with ideas on how to present the desired information.
I would like to remove this article from one of my projects (political economy of natural resources), and leave it in the other (colonial and decolonization history). Could you do that for me? I haven’t gotten to do that:
Hello, I'm interested in studies focusing on the potential impact of China's present and future activity in the Western Balkans on the region's territorial governance and territorial development dynamics.
Can anyone suggest recent research/articles on the matter?
Any help appreciated! :)
As part of my research, I want to experiment with a socio-spatial analysis (through the notion of utopia) militant occupations, or not, aimed at bringing out other forms of life. A well-known example today is ZAD (Notre-Dame-des-Landes,...).
However, I want to widen the scope to forms of spatial and social expressions other than the ZAD, but also to break with the social order in which they emerge.
I will wish old cases (of the 1970s) as recent (years 2000-2010). Thank you very much in advance.
I am looking for research about the specific role ICT can play in facilitating the sharing of space between different actors. This can be linked to sharing rooms in cohousing, sharing facilities between different associations, sharing office spaces, etc.
How do ICT help solving issues of logistics, territoriality, communication, etc?
What is the impact of space efficiency?
Reading testimonies about Fernand Deligny's "Cévennes attempt" with autistic children, I was struck by the fact that some autistic children seemed to be in touch with certain particular points in the territory (for instance, where ancient trails bifurcated, or hidden underground founts were located). I'm wondering – is there any research on these aspects? Other testimonies?
Thank you very much!
European Groupings of Territorial Cooperation is a new tool of European Territorial Cooperation. In theory it should be more efficient than euroregion. Several case studies prooved that EGTCs face several barriers in their development. Some EGTC's still work as euroregions.
Kosovar and Serbian officials have suggested a possible solution for solving the major obstacle to integrating the Western Balkans into the EU after the Name Issue of Macedonia, could be a land swap based on where ethnic Serb and Albanian minorities are concentrated — Kosovo's northern Mitrovica region for Serbia's Presevo Valley.
The flag of Kosovo is blue with a yellow geographical map of the country. Should it be changed? Or?
Is there any paper on how floaters develop 'territoriality' between them in birds? As they are not territorial individuals per se, I wondering if there is some background on how they exploit resources on different ways, being some of them more associated with high-quality resources whereas others not, mainly due to agonistic behavior.
Suppose, I am going to study the Thakali culture of Nepal, taking ethnography as methodology, then what should I do? Be concentrate on Thakalis culture of Thakkhola only or can be expanded field where Thakali people migrated, live, and shifted occupation e.g. roadside motels throughout the country?
The nation that plays a major role in the past crisis is China, the main ally of the North Koreans, who try to persuade both sides not to raise the tension. China's interest in keeping North Korea away from conflict is for practical rather than ideological reasons - if there is a collapse of the North Korean regime, the eventual unification of Korea would result in a strengthening of North American influence in a region close to its border. Moreover, the outbreak of a conflict would almost certainly provoke a movement of refugees towards the Chinese territory, which the government of Beijing seeks to avoid.
This week at a stats meeting Stephen Haslett described advising small area measures against SDGs in a scattering of (non-OECD) countries in our region, and some nuances (similar from my recollection) to what Martin Travallion had spoken of with WB cross country poverty alleviation measures. This leads into vulnerability index territory - mapping regions within countries for aid allocation. But given the stark segmenting in Australia: all progress in top deciles, standing still in lower over the 2000-2010 decade, maybe a finer level examination is needed, What should progress look like?
In 1916 ,Portugal entered the Great War without its european territory had been attacked, nor were its colonies actually in danger of being conquered.
There are different international law, doctrines for Trans Boundary Water Resources, such as:
1. Absolute territorial sovereignty theory
2. Absolute territorial integrity theory
3. Theory of limited territorial sovereignty.
4. Water Rights Based on Previous Use or Prior Appropriation
5. Riparian water rights
Although water covers more than two-thirds of the earth's surface, but 97% is in oceans and 2℅ locked in ice-cap and not available to human beings for consumption. Only 1℅ is termed as fresh water (surface & ground water). Therefore, water as a limited resource that is in great demand. The manner in which this demand is satisfied varies according to the jurisdiction in which a water supply is located. In case of trans-water resources, the upstream country has got upper hand to manipulate the river flow. This manipulation can be interpreted under various approaches and doctrines. Each approach has its weaknesses, and jurisdictions will continue experimenting with established legal doctrines to better accommodate the supply and demand of water rights.
Various treaties concluded to decide on the water. Question arose, either there is any such doctrines exists that protecting the ecology?
So I am having some spreadsheet issues, using excel. So I'll get right to it.
I am keeping population count data of every county in the USA.
However, I do not have population data for Puerto Rico.
I would like to take my spreadsheet of every USA county, and delete all counties/municipalities that belong to Puerto Rico, or any other U.S territories outside of the 50 states.
How can I do this?
Is there some way to take my spreadsheet that has info for only 50 states counties, select them, then go to the spreadsheet that has info for all 50 states counties, plus territories, and tell excel, hey, delete all rows that don't match the entries of my other spreadsheet?
I am currently involved in a research on a medium size town in Italy, characterised by a very well known and protected historical centre and surrounded by a traditionally rural territory that has been undergoing profound economic transformations in the last 50 years. The research foresees the writing of a territorial report mostly based on stakeholders' interviews. The reference, already chosen by the research coordinators, would be the so-called "community studies", very popular until the Sixties/Seventies, but maybe slightly out of date now. I would like to have a better understanding of the evolution of the concept and its employability for the research I mentioned. Thank you.
This plant was collected in 2008 in a coastal region of Mauritius (Mascarenes, Indian Ocean). It looks like Juncus maritimus which is not recorded on our territory. Length of stem above soil level is up to 60 cm. Plant growing among rocks in calcareous sand at tideline; very difficult to uproot.
Which kind of research topics in environmental sciences could be interesting for Central Asia territory?
I'm interested in the climate changes and tectonics of the Bashkortostan territory about last 10000 years. There are facts that basins of lake Kandrykul and lake Asylkul were formed not only because of karst, but also by tectonics.
We have been seeing many countries still don't have good resolution geological maps of their territory. In such situation remote sensing is an alternative for independent researchers. Understanding of Photogeology is the most for this.
