Globalisation and regionalisation tend to be mutually reinforcing. Policies must ensure that this outcome prevails, for non-OECD and OECD countries alike. Globalisation can weaken social cohesion and States’ economic policy autonomy. Post-taylorist “flexible” forms of organisation now drive and shape globalisation. The crisis of taylorist organisations is an important cause of the “structural” ...

Hallward-Driemeier, Mary et al. [2012-10-04]
This book looks at the effect of legal and economic rights on women's economic opportunities. It focuses on entrepreneurship because women in Africa are active entrepreneurs, and the links between property rights and the ability to enter contracts in one's own name affect entrepreneurial activities. The laws that are the focus of this book are not business laws and regulations, which ar ...

Structural Transformation and Rural Change Revisited : Challenges for Late Developing Countries in a Globalizing World
Losch, Bruno et al. [2012-06-18]
Structural transformation and rural change revisited challenges for a late developing country in a Globalizing World is an extremely thorough and important contribution to this renewal of structural economics. It significantly improves our understanding of rural economies and structural transformation, and it could not be timelier. With duration of five years (2006-2010), its objective was to ...

Predicting the decline in daily maximum transpiration rate of two pine stands during drought based on constant minimum leaf water potential and plant hydraulic conductance.
Duursma, R-A et al. 
The effect of drought on forest water use is often estimated with models, but comprehensive models require many parameters, and simple models may not be sufficiently flexible. Many tree species, Pinus species in particular, have been shown to maintain a constant minimum leaf water potential above the critical threshold for xylem embolism during drought. In such cases, prediction of the relativ ...

Hellstedt,-P et al. 
We monitored the home ranges, habitat use and activity of stoats Mustela erminea in north-west Finnish Lapland with radio-tracking in years 1998 and 1999, and found a dominance hierarchy in habitat use between and within sexes. The landscape of the study area can be divided into two clearly distinct habitats according to altitude and vegetation. The higher areas are treeless tundra, but the va ...

Post-drainage dynamics of P uptake by trees and ground vegetation in Scots pine dominated peatlands.
Laiho,-R et al. 
We investigated long-term dynamics of phosphorus (P) in ground vegetation, tree stand biomass and litterfall in two undrained and four drained oligotrophic pine (Pinus sylvestris) fens in southern Finland. The study sites, which encompassed observation periods up to six decades after drainage, were chosen to form a chronosequence of sites initially similar floristically, showing different stag ...
