This source further states "Depending upon the estimations made concerning unregistered mortality and natality, these figures could be increased to a level of 2. Malnourishment increases fatality rates from many diseases, and are not counted by some historians. In conditions of harvest failure and increased poverty, lice are likely to increase. Gathering numerous refugees at railway stations, on trains and elsewhere facilitates the spread.
Scientific Programme admin T Reducing and regulating the use of chemicals in the environment, Remediating soil, air and water pollution, Proposing the use of more sustainable chemicals.
Environmental scientists have the huge responsibility for developing, communicating and implementing knowledge, methods and tools to manage the eco- toxicological effects of chemicals in the environment, to reduce their risk and to regulate their use.
Moreover, they need to find new ways to uncover potential impacts from chemicals in advance and consider ways to anticipate and respond to them. The scientific programme consists of 7 tracks for parallel sessions and 1 track for special sessions invitation only.

Merging different sets of data has significantly increased our ability to investigate and quantify how a multitude of stressors may potentially alter biodiversity. In those cases, many aspects need to be tackled, amongst all: Due to the different aggregation and statistical methods as well as the increased computational power we can get more and more out of those datasets.
In this session, we suggest to focus on meta-analyses of existing datasets, with a helicopter view on meta-analyses in scientific research in general and ecotoxicology more specifically.
We welcome research stories focusing on the burning questions like: What should people be aware of when using existing data?
What tools are available for researchers to assess existing data? How to interpret data that was not tailor made for the purpose of the study?As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
Vienna is the most fully enriched location, and seems to be in roughly the same situation as Oslo. Many thanks to Hermes for the translation from timberdesignmag.com Bilbliography and online stories of the science fiction author Stephen Baxter.
