Abstract ( 1182 )
The breeding and broad cultivation of semi-dwarf crop varieties in the 1960s and 1970s dramatically increased the grain production in the world, particularly in Asian countries, which was popularly recognized as the "First Green Revolution". Many factors have shown that the first green revolution has brought some environmental problems as well. The contradiction between the continuous increase of world population and the rapid decrease of farming land and water resources is calling forth a new green revolution marked with modern genetic engineering technology. To guaranty both the food security and environmental safety, the actions that China should take during the second green revolution were discussed.

Abstract ( 561 )
Four phases were classified in terms of the relationship between human and rivers, including natural-cycled, engineering-regulated, pollution-controlled and ecological-rehabilitated phases. Based on the understanding of the relation between river health and river functions at certain stage, targets and principles for river regulation and rehabilitation were discussed. Note that most river systems were badly damaged due to over-exploitation. The idealized solutions to the river ecological rehabilitation should rely on the optimal analysis of the integrated system with multi-objective, multi-layer, multi-constraint characteristics. With reasonable consideration of river functions, thresholds and damaged levels, corresponding technologies and countermeasures for ecological rehabilitation of the damaged river systems were proposed.

Abstract ( 807 )
To degrade sol-gel in aerospace wastewater, nano particles of titanium dioxide both pure and doped with Cu2+ were prepared using the sol-gel method and characterized by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and infrared absorption spectroscopy (IR). The particle sizes of TiO2 and Cu/TiO2 were uniform and the average diameters were approximately 29 nm and 2425 nm, respectively. The optimum content of doped-copper is 2.0%, the degradation rate of which is 57.5% following 1 h of UV illumination. The degradation rate is about 2 times higher than those of sol-gel TiO2. Influences of unsymmetrical dimethyl-hydrazine (UDMH) such as temperature, catalyst concentration on the degradation rate were studied. Experimental results indicate that when the temperature is 25 ℃ and TiO2 concentration is 0.6 g/L, the degradation rate of UDMH is best.

Full text: HTMLnew PDF  (428 KB)  ( 293 )
Abstract ( 456 )
This paper researches and develops the straight strip-insert of special structure, which has elliptical teeth and broken edge on both sides. The teeth are the elements to drive the insert self-rotate under the action of fluidic power. With the broken edge, part of the fluid in tubes is led to flow spirally. So, this straight strip with elliptical teeth can remove the fouling on tubes wall automatically at low flowing velocity just like that twisted strip with oblique teeth. The convection heat transfer enhancement is much more than that of the plain twisted strip because of three factors: much eddy flow behind the elliptical teeth, fluid flow being changed into spiral flow, and the combination and separation of the spiral flow and axial flow. The experiments show that this new insert can be manufactured easily and has great comprehensive performance. It can work reliably at a low velocity of 0.5 m/s and make the heat transfer coefficient inside tubes be increased by 170%. The flowing r...更多esistance is in the range of industrial permission. Therefore, it has great significance of industrial application

Abstract ( 545 )
Nature reserves play an important role in the evolving challenge of maintaining a sustainable world. Visitors are one of the major causes of ecosystem damage. To ensure the sustainability of these ecosystems, the damage impact of visitors must be managed. First, this paper discusses the development of visitor management concept. In the beginning, one popular approach to visitor management is carrying capacity. However,carrying capacity is neither simple nor particularly useful. In the 1980s, visitor management frameworks, such as the Limits of Acceptable Change (LAC) planning system, was developed. The latter one is more effective than the former one in practice. Next,the theory of visitor management is explored in this paper. Alden suggested education programs aimed at changing visitor behavior might be more effective than solely through use limits. Limiting use is only one of many management options. Finally, an overview of eleven principles of visitor management is presented. These ...更多principles have emerged from researches on visitor impacts and from the management of protected areas to minimize those impacts. According to these principles and the practices in Baihuashan nature reserve, the paper put forward six principles of visitor management, which provide a sound basis for the systematic planning system for natural area visitor management in China.
