(IT)-(EN) - Manuale italiano di interpretazione degli habitat della Direttiva 92/43/CEE | unipg.it | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"La Direttiva Habitat rappresenta uno dei principali strumenti normativi finalizzati alla conservazione della Biodiversità in Europa. Essa ha il ruolo fondamentale di porre le basi per un profondo cambiamento nell’approccio alla conservazione della natura dando nuovo impulso a ricerche di base di tipo tassonomico, sindinamico ed ecologico, in campo floristico, vegetazionale e faunistico.

La scienza deve tendere a risolvere i problemi della società che sono legati alla vita e alla sua qualità. Tra questi la perdita di biodiversità gioca un ruolo fondamentale in quanto la varietà delle forme di vita assume valori diretti ed indiretti, di estrema importanza per l’uomo, per il mantenimento della società e dei suoi valori culturali e sociali.

 

In base alla Direttiva Habitat 92/43 del 21 maggio 1992 è stato effettuato a livello continentale il rilevamento della biodiversità mirante alla “conservazione degli habitat naturali e seminaturali e della flora e della fauna selvatica”. Con gli habitat riconosciuti dalla Direttiva (All. I) viene esplicitamente evidenziato il valore del livello di organizzazione fitocenotica della biodiversità mediante le tipologie vegetazionali. In questo modo si realizza direttamente ed indirettamente anche la conservazione delle specie (Allegato II) in quanto la conservazione delle popolazioni si attua mediante la conservazione degli habitat. Di ciascun habitat la vegetazione, oltre ad evidenziare la parte immediatamente percepibile, ci fornisce anche le caratteristiche ecologiche, in base al postulato scientifico della scienza della vegetazione per il quale ad ogni associazione corrisponde una particolare condizione ecologica.

 

Con la Direttiva Habitat l’Europa si è dotata di una straordinaria rete di Siti con la quale intende conservare gli habitat e le popolazioni di specie animali e vegetali che meglio caratterizzano la biodiversità del nostro continente. Nello stesso tempo sono stati evidenziati elementi di riflessione che condizioneranno il futuro della scienza della conservazione: per la prima volta viene infatti chiaramente espresso il legame tra specie e comunità, per la prima volta si sceglie la sintassonomia fitosociologica come riferimento di base per tutta l’Europa e per la prima volta si intende considerare nella rete dei Siti di Importanza Comunitaria anche porzioni di territorio seminaturali o parzialmente degradate che ..."

(EN) - Glossary of cricket terms | Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a general glossary of the terminology used in the sport of cricket. Where words in a sentence are also defined elsewhere in this article, they appear in italics. Certain aspects of cricket terminology are explained in more detail in cricket statistics and the naming of fielding positions is explained at fielding (cricket).

Cricket is known for its rich terminology.[1][2][3] Some terms are often thought to be arcane and humorous by those not familiar with the game.[4]

(DE)-(PDF) - Vergleich der Sprengmethoden Gazex, Lawinenwächter/-mast Inauen-Schätti, Wyssen Sprengmast, Avalancheur | SLF Davos

"Im folgenden wird vertieft auf die Anlagen der Firmen Technologie Alpine de Sécurité T.A.S. (u.a. Gazex), Inauen-Schätti (u.a. Lawinenwächter) und Wyssen (Sprengmast) sowie den Avalancheur eingegangen. 

 

Die erwähnten 4 Systeme sind seit mindestens dem Jahr 2000 im Einsatz und nach Ausmerzung gewisser Probleme kann ihre Funktionstüchtigkeit als gut bezeichnet werden. Der vorliegende Bericht soll die Systemwahl für ein bestimmtes Einsatzgebiet unterstützen. Viele Sprengmethoden stehen in der Schweiz für die künstliche Lawinenauslösung zur Verfügung. Am meisten verwendet werden Handwurfladungen und Helikoptersprengungen. Mit Helisprengungen kann ein grosses Gebiet relativ rasch gesichert werden, der Nachteil ist v.a. die Abhängigkeit vom Flugwetter.


Seit langem werden auch Armeewaffen (Raketenrohr, Minenwerfer) und Sprengseilbahnen eingesetzt. Mit den ortsfesten Systemen Gazex, Lawinenwächter/-mast Inauen-Schätti und dem Wyssen Sprengmast hat sich die künstliche Lawinenauslösung stark weiterentwickelt, da an ausgewählten Standorten, jederzeit (ab Computer / Fernsteuerung) eine gute bis sehr gute Sprengwirkung erzielt werden kann.
