|Closing the mineral cycle in dairy farming||08-09-2021||08-10-2021||Lely Sphere allows dairy farmers to limit the emissions of ammonia from their barns significantly, use the captured ammonia as fertiliser, and divide the animal manure into two mineral streams, giving the farmer the ability to optimise fertilisation for crops and soils by using the value of emissions.||Clemens||Duijnisveld||Lely||LIFE CMCD Project||Agri-Foodstuffs, Agriculture, Forestry & Fisheries||The PRj Volume 10||Read Full Text||Download (PDF)|
|Coniferous forests in the Mediterranean: an ecosystem of vital importance, threatened by forest management deficit||06-09-2021||04-10-2021||Forests constitute a fundamental piece of the territorial landscape.

|How does the viability of bone-restricted osteocytes regulate bone atrophy?||03-09-2021||04-10-2021||Although the skeleton appears stiff and solid, it is, in fact, a dynamic and sensitive network, demanding a fine balance between the bone-resorbing osteoclasts and the bone-forming osteoblasts. Disruption of this homeostasis frequently leads to exaggerated bone degradation by osteoclasts, manifesting in pathological bone loss.||Aline (Prof. Dr)||Bozec||Universitätsklinikum Erlangen||ODE||Biology, Medicine||The PRj Volume 10||Read Full Text||Download (PDF)|

|Spectrally resolved outgoing longwave radiation and its applications for the study of climate||03-09-2021||04-10-2021||Earth’s climate is determined by the flow of energy coming in and out of the Earth-atmosphere system. When reaching the atmosphere, a fraction (about 30 percent) of the incoming Sun’s radiation is directly reflected into space. The remaining part is absorbed by the atmosphere and Earth’s surface and reemitted as heat back into space.||Simon||Whitburn||Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium||iASi-FT||Climate & Environment||The PRj Volume 10||Read Full Text||Download (PDF)|
|Wage inequality within and across firms: the role of market forces, government and firm policies||03-09-2021||04-10-2021||Wage inequality has increased sharply in many industrialised countries over the past decades. In Germany, for example, real (i.e. inflation-adjusted) wages at the bottom 10 percent of the wage distribution declined by more than 15 percent between 1995 and 2010, whereas real wages at the top 10 percent of the wage distribution rose by more than 12 percent over the same period.||Uta||Schönberg||University College London||FirmIneq||Society||The PRj Volume 10||Read Full Text||Download (PDF)|
