Die Rolle der nicht-hoheitlichen Flächensicherung im Naturschutz

Disselhoff, Tilmann (2018)

The control of land uses for nature conservation purposes is implemented through regulatory instruments (land use planning, designation of reserves etc.) and through voluntary contractual agreements. The pursuit of conservation goals through voluntary instruments (acquisition of properties, voluntary use restrictions etc.) can be summarized as private land conservation. Private land conservati...

The characterization of water-soluble organic compounds released from organic-rich sediments

Calzada Mendoza, Jacqueline Mireya (2018)

The study of deep biosphere, especially the growth under extreme conditions (e.g. high temperatures and limited substrates), has attracted considerable attention in recent decades. Even under such conditions, water and low molecular weight organic acids (LMWOA) are present. LMWOA play an important role in several biotic and abiotic processes, e.g. in the Krebs cycle used by all aerobic organism...

Indicators on the Impacts of Climate Change on Biodiversity in Germany—Data Driven or Meeting Political Needs?

Schliep, Rainer ; Walz, Ulrich ; Sukopp, Ulrich ; Heiland, Stefan (2018-10-31)

When developing new indicators for policy advice, two different approaches exist and may be combined with each other. First, a data-driven, bottom-up approach determines indicators primarily by the availability of suitable data. Second, indicators can be developed by a top-down approach, on the basis of political fields of action and related normative goals. While the bottom-up approach might n...

Al Bondakji, Louna ; Chatzi, Anna-Maria ; Heidari Tabar, Minoo ; Wesseler, Lisa-Marie ; Werner, Liss C. (2018)

The project aims to investigate the possibility of VR in a combination of visualizing high-dimensional urban data. Our study proposes a data-based tool for urban planners, architects, and researchers to 3D visualize and experience an urban quarter. Users have a possibility to choose a specific part of a city according to urban data input like "buildings, streets, and landscapes". This data-base...

Multi-Dimensional Interface Based Spatial Adaption

Lohse, Theresa ; Fujii, Ryuta ; Werner, Liss C. (2018)

Patten and Ishii (2000) discovered that people are employing more versatile strategies for spatial distribution when using a tangible user interface (TUI) as opposed to a graphics user interface (GUI) (Patten & Ishii, 2000). Besides, the generated information outputs of conventional two-dimensional interacting screens are currently almost entirely addressing the visual and acoustic senses but l...

Schulz, Daniel ; Reiter, Felix ; Metche, Alexander ; Werner, Liss C. (2018)

This paper describes the development of a Grasshopper-based planning support tool for urban planning. The tool aims at the analysis of demand in educational facilities and the optimization of their location and capacities. It was developed for the use case of Berlin using only publicly available resources and data sets. Through preprocessed GIS- and statistical data plus an easy-access interfac...

Biological Computation of Physarum

Werner, Liss C. (2018)

Physarum polycephalum, also called slime mold or myxamoeba, has started attracting the attention of those architects, urban designers, and scholars, who work in experimental trans- and flexi-disciplines between architecture, computer sciences, biology, art, cognitive sciences or soft matter; disciplines that build on cybernetic principles. Slime mold is regarded as a bio-computer with intellige...

HUNCH 1972: A Second Experiment in Sketch Recognition or: ‘I Know the Concept of Your Concept of Interpolation’

Werner, Liss C. (2018)

James Taggart developed the sketch recognition system HUNCH at MIT in 1972. Rather than the user trying to understand the software in order to progress a drawing, in the case of HUNCH, the software observed the user sketching. It enabled a conversation between user and software through the sketch as a medium. HUNCH was one component of the Architecture Machine, created in the Architecture Machi...

Uncovering Culture and Identity in Refugee Camps

Dalal, Ayham (2017)

Refugee camps, especially in their emergency phases, are places where everything seems to be similar, repetitive, and modular. This impression is not only due to the unified shelter unit that is usually distributed by UNHCR1 (traditionally a tent, and recently caravans, prefabs, and developed T-Shelters), but is also due to the camps’ ordered layout and hierarchical plan.

Exploration and optimized siting of geothermal wells using a web-based spatial decision support system

Mwaura, Daniel Waweru (2018)

As the world develops and economies grow, there is a commensurate rise in the demand for energy. Many current approaches of fulfilling the increased demand have led to increased pollution through emission of greenhouse gases. A lot of current research in the energy sector is therefore geared towards green and reliable energy sources. Geothermal energy production is one of the leading sources o...

The future of global land use

Kreidenweis, Ulrich (2018)

Global land-use change is a main driver of two of the biggest environmental alterations threatening human well-being: climate change and the decline in biodiversity. Over recent decades, a growing and wealthier population has requested more agricultural products, and this demand has been satisfied by expanding agricultural areas and intensifying production. However, this has posed consequences....

New Products of Defense Secretion in South East Asian Whip Scorpions (Arachnida: Uropygi: Thelyphonida)

Haupt, Joachim ; Müller, Frank (2004)

Secretion products from the opisthosomal defense gland of south east Asian whip scorpions were identified for the first time by gas-chromatography and mass-spectrometry. Specimens of the genera Hypoctonus, Typopeltis and Ginosigma were tested. While some ingredients are present in large concentrations, others are possibly only side products and may be synthesized more incidentally. For this rea...

Purpose-designed technogenic materials for sustainable urban greening

Flores Ramírez, Eleonora (2018)

Background: Urban green areas provide a number of desirable ecosystem services for the environment and city dwellers. However, the substrate preparation for the greenery installation mostly implies the mining and erosion of valuable natural soils. Therefore, the objective of this work is to design a Technosol based on a mixture of mainly recycled materials, to sustain vegetation and to lower t...
