Alfonso, Sébastien, Manuel Gesto, and Bastien Sadoul. “Temperature increase and its effects on fish stress physiology in the context of global warming.” Journal of Fish Biology 98.6 (2021): 1496-1508.
Sebastien Alfonso was born on 19th June 1974 in Zaragoza, Spain. He is well known for his great passion and interest in fish and aquaculture. Manuel Gesto is a senior researcher at the National Institute of Aquatic resources. He is a professor from CISPA Technology University in Bari, Italy, and Sadoul from the section for Aquaculture, DTU Aqua Technical University of Denmark, Hirtshals. He attended the University of Vigo, where he undertook his master’s in Marine biology and aquaculture and later had his Ph.D. at the same university. The authority of the authors is seen in their journals. They have included their profile, link to the source, and short biographies to include their trustworthiness in detail.
Additionally, the credibility of the authors is seen in that they exhaust the effects of global warming on fisheries and marine ecosystems in very concise and simplified information. The limitation of this source is that it is only concentrated on global warming, although other ways of environmental pollution environment negatively affect fisheries and marine ecosystems. The journal is helpful in my research because it will enable me to fully understand the content of global warming and its effects on marine life.
Chidumayo, Emmanuel N., and L. Kwibisa. “Effects of deforestation on grass biomass and soil nutrient status in miombo woodland, Zambia.” Agriculture, ecosystems & environment 96.1-3 (2003): 97-105.
Chimayo is an author from the Biological Sciences Department at the University of Zambia, Lusaka, Zambia researched how deforestation affects the ecosystem in Zambia’s natural Miombo woodland. The purpose of his research was to investigate how deforestation in central Africa reduces soil’s nutrient content and increases soil erosion. Chimayo and Emmanuel N. argue about the effects of deforestation to curb the widespread violation of environmental conservation rules. For instance, the two authors insist on creating awareness among all citizens of Zambia. Police officers also reinforce strict rules and measures to be followed. They also argue about the effects of deforestation in Miombo to acknowledge the importance of biogas by the government. The limitation of this source is that it only concentrated on the impact of deforestation in tropical areas, whereas deforestation is a global problem.
Ghenai, Chaouki, and Maamar Bettayeb. “Data analysis of the electricity generation mix for clean energy transition during COVID-19 lockdowns.” Energy Sources, Part A: Recovery, Utilization, and Environmental Effects (2021): 1-21.
Maamar Bettayeb was born on 3rd June 1953. In the article, Chennai, a sustainable and renewable energy engineering department, college of Engineering, University of Sharjah, Sharjah UAE, and Bettayeb, from Center for Sustainable Energy and Power Systems, Research Institute for Science and Engineering University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates a data analysis of the electricity generation mix during C0VID-19 lockdowns. The primary purpose of conducting the investigation was to analyze the amount of energy supplied to companies and households during the lockdowns. The authors argue in order to enable the researchers to compare the percentage of non-renewable versus renewable energy provided and the rate of carbon emissions. The energy data was later used to show the importance and the role of the development of a clean energy system to reduce the rate of air pollution. The source is a scholarly peer-reviewed article because it includes the authors and the content, it is written for professionals, and it is pretty long. The strength of the article is its data-based analysis. The article is therefore essential for my research because it will enable me to analyze how the pandemic created a need for increased usage of non-renewable energy and how this change shapes the future of the clean energy system.
Manisalidis, Ioannis, et al. “Environmental and health impacts of air pollution: a review.” Frontiers in public health (2020): 14.
Ioannis Manisalidis is a doctorate student from Athens, Greece. The main aim or rather claim of the authors is to analyze the effects of environmental pollution on human health. Manisalidis argues how the depletion of the ozone layer in the stratosphere increases the risk of skin cancer and how pollutants such as nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide, Volatile Organic Compounds (V0Cs), dioxins, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons affect human health. According to him, heavy metals such as lead and mercury lead to poisoning and intoxication when humans inhale them. On the other hand, Ioannis argues how pollutants in water and air interfere with human physiology. The author also points out specific diseases that are brought about by these toxic substances in the air, such as Asthma, and therefore affect the inhalation of a person. In addition to that, cardiovascular diseases are common among people living in submarine areas. The source is a scholarly peer-reviewed article because it includes the authors and the content, it is written for professionals, and it is pretty long. The limitation of the article is that it emphasizes the frontiers of public health only, and its strength is that it shows the ways of curbing pollution.
Wimbadi, Ramanditya Wimbardana, and Riyanti Djalante. “From decarbonization to low carbon development and transition: A systematic literature review of the conceptualization of moving toward net-zero carbon dioxide emission (1995–2019).” Journal of Cleaner Production 256 (2020): 120307.
Ramanditya is a resilient development initiative from Bandung, Indonesia. He and Djalante, in this article, have evaluated the global attempt to attain a net-zero carbon dioxide emission by the year 2050. Their review aims to analyze the essential concepts of climate change mitigation about the reduction or complete elimination of carbon dioxide gas. The paper also examines the decarbonization measures that lead to progressive zero-emission of Carbon dioxide. Wimbadi and other researchers give a literature review, thereby including a systematic and coherent flow of information on how the world can attain the zero-emission of carbon dioxide. The study is essential in the field of environmental pollution because it proposes the zero-emission of carbon as one of the ways of cleaning up the environment. Also, the article highlights the effects of carbon dioxide on the life of an individual by evaluating the cause and what should be done. Environmental activists are, therefore, able to understand the logic behind environmental pollution.
