Abstract Empirical evidence of enemy release is still inconsistent for invasive alien plant species, although enemy release is the key assumption for both the enemy release hypothesis (ERH) and the evolution of increased competitive ability hypothesis (EICA). In addition, little effort has been made to test this assumption in terms of defense investment using a multi-species comparative approach. Using a phylogenetically controlled within-study meta-analytical approach, we compared leaf herbivor...

Abstract Global warming and increased nutrient availability in the Arctic have attracted wide attention. However, it is unknown how an increased supply of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and/or labile carbon (C) – alone and in combinations – affects the concentrations and pools of C and nutrients in plants, soil and soil microorganisms, and whether the cessation of these additions allows the ecosystem to recover from amendments. Six treatments (control, C, N, P, NP and C + NP) were applied at a sub...

Abstract Excess nitrate in drinking water is a human health concern, especially for young children. Public drinking water systems in violation of the 10 mg nitrate-N/L maximum contaminant level (MCL) must be reported in EPA's Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS). We used SDWIS data with random forest modeling to examine the drivers of nitrate violations across the conterminous U.S. and to predict where public water systems are at risk of exceeding the nitrate MCL. As explanatory variab...

Abstract The objective of this study was to quantify the seasonal risk of salt damage to bioswale plants, soil, microbes, and downstream waterbodies. To do so, we measured sodium, chloride, and electrical conductivity levels at seven bioswales located in the Bronx, New York City, over 42 storm events during a three-year monitoring period. The bioswale with the greatest salt contamination (median 206 mg/L chloride) had a unique inlet design without any possibility of inlet bypass. The most severe...

Abstract A scientifically sound integrated assessment modeling (IAM) system capable of providing optimized cost-benefit analysis is essential in effective air quality management and control strategy development. Yet scenario optimization for large-scale applications is limited by the computational expense of optimization over many control factors. In this study, a multi-pollutant cost-benefit optimization system based on a genetic algorithm (GA) in machine learning has been developed to provide ...

Abstract Anaerobic digestion is widely used in starch wastewater pre-treatment and can remove the COD effectively, however, the effluents are nutritious and often need supplemental aerobic treatments to remove nutrients prior to discharge. The objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using the liquid digestate of starch wastewater (LDSW) as a fertilizer. This pot experiment was conducted with Ipomoea aquatica Forsk in a greenhouse with six treatment groups. The crop growth w...
Abstract Fluorine is a chemical element which is often present in natural environment. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) standards fluoride content in drinking water cannot be higher than 1.5 mg F−/L. Nitrate was also found in many regions in the world. According to guidelines its content in drinking water cannot exceed 50 mg NO3−/L. Ingestion of fluoride and nitrate in excess leads to various health issues. There are many methods of fluoride removal, e.g. reverse osmosis, ion exc...

Abstract A methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus CC398 was recovered from a wild female boar (Sus scrofa) in the north of Portugal, in 2013 (Sousa et al. 2017). Whole genome sequencing (WGS) revealed this strain carries a new variant of a mecA-containing staphylococcal chromosomal gene cassette (SCCmec) type IV with an uncommon J3 region. WGS studies can facilitate surveillance and provide more detailed characterization of bacterial clones circulating in the wild, reinforcing the need for ...
Abstract The effective treatment of marine aquaculture wastewater is of great significance to protect marine environment and marine organisms. This study validated the feasibility of the comprehensive removal of NH4+-N, NO2−-N, COD and P, as well as disinfection and antibiotics removal from marine aquaculture wastewater by electrochemical oxidation (EO), comparing the performance and energy consumption with that by electro-peroxone (EP) and electro-Fenton (EF) process. Due to the formation of mo...

Abstract The sequence of two infiltration steps combined with an intermediate aeration named ‘sequential managed aquifer recharge technology (SMART)’ proved to be a promising approach to replenish groundwater using treated wastewater effluents or impaired surface waters due to efficient inactivation of pathogens and improved removal of many trace organic chemicals. To minimize the physical footprint of such systems and overcome limitations through site-specific heterogeneity at conventional MAR ...
