    A adaptação da arquitetura e do urbanismo ao clima local significa proporcionar aos indivíduos ambientes confortáveis termicamente e trazer bem-estar para população. Tendo em vista o clima tropical quente e úmido da cidade do Recife, deve-se buscar nessa região, ambientes ventilados e sombreados para amenizar a sensação de calor existente. Para a população mais pobre, o meio de aquisição de uma moradia mais confortável ocorre através das políticas públicas de habitação social, as quais prometem a provisão de ambientes dignos e saudáveis à saúde humana.

    After the Doi Moi (‘renovation’) reforms in Vietnam from 1986, land ownership rules were adjusted, effectively terminating former land collectivisation efforts. While land ownership remained fully under the control of the state, a 1993 land law conferred 20-year leaseholds to most farmers. They could now utilize farm land individually, and sell, swap and mortgage the land in a situation similar to private ownership. These leaseholds are now expiring and a new 2013 land law is in the making.

    Understanding the combined and separate effects of climate and land use change on the water cycle is necessary to mitigate negative impacts. However, existing methodologies typically divide data into discrete (before and after) periods, implicitly representing climate and land use as step changes when in reality these changes are often gradual. Here, we introduce a new regression-based methodological framework designed to separate climate and land use effects on any hydrological flux of interest continuously through time, and estimate uncertainty in the contribution of these two drivers.

    Background: Movement behaviour is fundamental to the ecology of animals and their interactions with other organisms, and as such contributes to ecosystem dynamics. Waterfowl are key players in ecological processes in wetlands and surrounding habitats through predator-prey interactions and their transportation of nutrients and other organisms. Understanding the drivers of their movement behaviour is crucial to predict how environmental changes affect their role in ecosystem functioning.
