If the water source is not properly treated, health risks and problems could arise. Based on the facts and findings form journals, I would conclude that recycled water is used only for nonpotable purposes. Furthermore, recycled water provide many environmental benefits such as decreasing the diversion of water from sensitive ecosystems. To conclude, recycled water has a lot of nutrients such as nitrogen and very useful for irrigation which allows reduce putting of synthetic fertilizers.. This could also lessen and prevent
Climate change and global warming is the changes in the earth’s weather, wind patterns and rainfall. These changes are the result of increase in temperature of the earth’s atmosphere which is caused by the increase of particular gases, especially carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is a vital gas for plant life on earth and is formed during respiration. Although there are two types of carbon sinks- man-made and natural, in this essay, I will focus on one natural carbon sink- forests, however, I will give a brief insight into another carbon sink. Firstly, I will introduce and discuss forest as my chosen carbon sink, how it works in relation to soaking up carbon dioxide and how it benefits the environment.
The rainforest helps maintain and regulate the continuous recycling of water that filter to the rivers, and lakes without this it would be more droughts, it supports air quality and helps trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce H2O. It also provides wood, fiber and fuel and it is also important to indigenous communities supplying fresh water, wild foods,wild fisheries and wood for fire and building. People who live near the rainforest also hold a somewhat cultrue or spiritual bond giving them a sense of
Therefore, reducing ruminal methane production is not only improves the efficiency of nutrient utilization but also helps to protect the environment from warming. Manipulating the rumen microbial ecosystem to reduce methane emission by ruminants to improve their performance are important issues for animal nutritionists. There is a need to reduce methanogensis by promoting a shift in fermentation pattern towards appropriate metabolic production as well as most economic and long term effective without making an adverse effect on animal and consumers. Inhibition of ruminal CH4 production may improve the efficiency of ruminal fermentation as well as decreasing the atmospheric concentration of a greenhouse
As time went on, trees used to help reduce the level of carbon dioxide along with other greenhouses gases got cut down. The numbers of trees and forest began to decrease in order to build homes, factories, and cities. As human life became to advance, we added more pollution into our atmosphere. This began to affected climate change due to the extra amount of heat energy being trap on earth’s surface. The surface of our planet became hotter, it created a breeding ground for droughts, wildfires and massive hurricanes.

The Effect of Removing Plants from Wetlands will test how significant the flooding in a plant-less wetland environment is. Research Question: What is the effect of removing plants from wetlands? Research Hypothesis: Removing plants from wetlands will increase flooding. Motivation: Wetlands provide a wide variety of plants and are a habitat for many animals.
The Pseudomonas fluorescens strain are quite effective in the bioremediation of toxicants like phenols, pesticides and heavy metals. One the greatest concerns to farmers and agriculturists is the increasing amount of damage that is being caused to plants (crops) by the used of pesticides heavy metal fertilizers. Not only that, these fertilizers seep into water bodies and pollute them. This soil bacterium is useful in fighting pollution both in ground and in water. The fact that it feeds on carbons and can live with minimum nutrition added to the fact that it breaks down heavy metal compounds in soils to insoluble and less harmful compounds helps us to effectively battle water pollution.
During production, the chemical released harm the environment and cause pollutions especially for land and water pollution. In contrast, Mycofoam can be reuse, recycle, and rebuild to a new products, it helps to reduce wastage of material and is able to protect the environment. Now, Mycofoam is infused with seedlings. The seedlings are grown once the Mycofoam decomposed near suitable condition.
It provides extra nutrients for the plant’s growth and life cycle. It can also increase the soil’s capability to retain water. Organic farms use humus since it is composed of decomposing leaves, another chemical reaction. Humus, which is essential to the soil, balances out the presence of carbon and nitrogen ratio of the soil. It can also retain, remove or lower concentrations of pollutants present in the soil (Royal Society of Chemistry,
The final component in the component in the environmental aspect of sustainable agriculture is habitat conservation. This is where farmers carry out land management practices to conserve, protect and restore habitat areas for wild plants and animals. On our farm this is achieved by fencing away from rivers so wild plants and animals can grow and populate. Another practice which we carry out is not spreading slurry, fertilizer or waste near rivers or waterways. These are important as it maintains biodiversity which is an essential part of food security.
