This book chapter advances SDGs 12, 13 and 14 by discussing the current warming of the Arctic climate caused by human exploitation activities and the potential impact these activities may have in driving a number of marine mammals and other vertebrate species to extinction, unless strong conservation initiatives are put in place immediately.
This chapters describes the hugely diverse but threatened desert environments, from their broad ecosystem structure through to the unique adaptations found among the species inhabiting these challenging habitats. Current changes and threats desert ecosystems face due to anthropogenic activities, including climate change, are discussed, together with potential solutions and conservation approaches.
Multidisciplinary analytical techniques allow us to examine the presence and behaviour of pollutants in complex atmospheric, terrestrial, aquatic, and living compartments of ecosystems. This book chapter advances SDGs 6, 13 and 15.
This chapter advances SDG 6, 11, and 13 by explaining how droughts have long played a major disruptive role in history, threatening the stability of human society. Here, we briefly review the relationship between civilizations and drought, stressing the link between agriculture and drought impacts.

Eco-Cities and Green Transport, 2020, Pages 1-23

This book chapter addresses SDG 11 and 13 by explaining how Copenhagen organizes and develops green transportation for the city and lessons learned for other major cities to consider.
This book chapter addresses SDGs 12 and 13 by explaining how agricultural machinery has lead to negative environmental impacts and that there are sustainable production methods to create a whole-farm management approach.
This book chapter addresses goals 14, 13 and 6 by looking at the ecology and species conservation of freshwater habitats.
This book chapter addresses goals 7, 13 and 11 by looking at ecological technologies that transform natural resources into anthropocentric goods and services.
