By: W. J. Libby

Summary

By: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Nutrition Reference Publication

Excerpt: Rural people around the world are of one mind when it comes to the durability, availability and use of the goods and services provided by tree resources, whether inside or outside the forest.

By: P. R. Payne

Nutrition Reference Publication

Excerpt: It is perhaps useful to begin by attempting to draw a clear distinction between a requirement and a recommended intake. In recent years, nutritionists have become increasingly concerned with the problem of specifying recommended intakes of nutrients which might be considered optimal for different aspects of health and well being with, for example, the object of prolonging active life, or of achieving some desirable standard of growth and maturation rate in children.

Hydrology, Soil Architecture and Water Movement

By: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Nutrition Reference Publication

Excerpt: An understanding of the hydrological cycle is essential for the effective management of rainwater and soil water. Water occurs not only as a liquid, but also as a solid (e.g. hail, snow) and as a gas - water vapour. The total amount of water in the world is constant, but water is continuously changing from one form to another and is continuously moving at different speeds. These interrelationships are shown in a simplified form at a regional scale in Figure 2.
