    Una premessa soggiacente alle valutazioni e certificazioni offerte dai principali sistemi di valutazione della performance ambientale degli immobili consiste nel fatto che, ove il mercato disponga di migliori prassi e informazioni, un client group con potere decisionale può e deve garantire la propria leadership ai fini di una responsabilità ambientale, affinché altri seguano il suo esempio per rimanere competitivi.

    Pasture rest is a possible strategy for improving land condition in the extensive grazing lands of northern Australia. If pastures currently in poor condition could be improved, then overall animal productivity and the sustainability of grazing could be increased. The scientific literature is examined to assess the strength of the experimental information to support and guide the use of pasture rest, and simulation modelling is undertaken to extend this information to a broader range of resting practices, growing conditions and initial pasture condition.

    We can effectively monitor soil condition—and develop sound policies to offset the emissions of greenhouse gases—only with accurate data from which to define baselines. Currently, estimates of soil organic C for countries or continents are either unavailable or largely uncertain because they are derived from sparse data, with large gaps over many areas of the Earth. Here, we derive spatially explicit estimates, and their uncertainty, of the distribution and stock of organic C in the soil of Australia.
