TREES AND THEIR ECONOMIC IMPORTANCE • The banana tree (plant) has only a thick false stem (pseudostem), which is not woody but made up of a central core of soft tissues concealed by the fibrous and sheathing bases of large leaves. Strictly speaking, the banana plant is a giant herb.

Subsequently, this paper presents the findings of a study that explored the socio-economic and environmental issues associated with salt farming.

Primary data sourced from the local community provided bulk of the information. Through multi-stage cluster and snowball sampling techniques, a sample of households and Utilitarian values can be broken down into direct use values, indirect use values, and option values.

Direct use values include consumptive (harvesting fish or aquatic plants) and nonconsumptive (water sports and recreation) use values.

Indirect use values include water purification, water supply, and other ecosystem processes that benefit. The aim here is to link IUCN Red List data on the extinction risk for species Socio-economic values of aquatic plants book northern Africa with information on these freshwater species’ socioeconomic value, and to evaluate levels of dependence on wetland services in conjunction with the known threats faced by the species underpinning these services.

Fresh water is mankind’s most precious resources, the increasing scarcity of clean fresh water through population growth and development, droughts, contamination, and other factors, places greater demands on the very foundation of the society. Unfortunately, invasive plants and algae are progressively disrupting the ecological balance required for maintaining adequate fresh water resources Author: Ajani Funmilola.

By conducting an input–output analysis, the work presented in this chapter has attempted to first estimate the direct and indirect socio-economic impacts associated with the construction as well as O&M phases of two individual solar thermal power plants – a 50 MW parabolic trough plant and a 17 MW tower by: 3.

The root topological indices TI, q a and q b for the 21 aquatic plants were ±± and ± (means ± S.E.), respectively, revealing a general pattern of dichotomous branching, except for the aquatic root of Myriophyllum aquaticum (Vell.) Verdc., which displays herringbone branching.

All three topological indices were significantly lower for monocots (TI = 0 Cited by: 2. Understanding local people's socio-economic values of wetlands and traditional mechanisms of managing natural resources forms the basis of conserving them.

This stagnant dark environment negatively affects the biodiversity and abundance of freshwater species, including fish and submerged aquatic plants. Salvinia molesta can alter wetland ecosystems and cause wetland loss and also poses a severe threat to socio-economic activities dependent on open, flowing and/or high quality waterbodies.

ADVERTISEMENTS: In this article we will discuss about the economic importance of insects. Beneficial Insects: Insects which produce honey, wax, lac, dyes and silk are commercially beneficial.

Some insects are very helpful in destroying injurious insects. Commercial Products: Apis, the honeybees produce millions of tons of honey every year, it also gives bees [ ]. The potato is grown as a major crop in countries in different climatological zones, including temperate regions, the sub-tropics and tropics, under very different agro-ecological conditions, lowlands and highlands and in very different socio-economic environments.

Currently, the crop is grown on a significant scale in about by: 1. Economic and Social Impacts The economic and social impacts of invasive species include both direct effects of a species on property values, agricultural productivity, public utility operations, native fisheries, tourism, and outdoor recreation, as well as costs associated with invasive species control efforts.

Wetlands are areas of land where the water level remains near or above the surface of the ground for most of the year.

Ponds, as well as existing in a physical landscape, are part of human socio-economic landscapes, especially those in towns and cities.

Socio-economic, ecological and land cover data were collected from thirty seven ponds in the urban area of Halton, northwest England over a 3 year period. Proximity to ports was the fourth socio-economic factor considered and was included as ports are the main entry point for aquatic invasive species.

The most important factor influencing the risk of invasion according to the model’s results was minimum temperature, followed by proximity to ports. The inclusion of socio-economic factors.1.
