Annual Report Appendices We are studying fundamental aspects of plant growth and adaptive responses to environmental stresses and environmental variation, including global climate change. We seek to identify how plants sense variations in their environments, how this information is transmitted and how it is integrated into responses that impact on plant morphogenesis and architecture, resource acquisition and use for growth. This information will be key to the engineering of plants tailored to specific environments and to an intelligent management of biological diversity in environments of the future.

Extractions: Climate change is considered by many scientists to be the most serious threat facing the world today. The Kyoto Protocol is an international treaty that requires countries around the world to cut greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change - opening the door to a cleaner future of innovative energy technologies. Solutions include phasing out coal plants, expanding renewable energy sources and public transit, and creating new efficiency standards for vehicles and buildings.

GCTE Focus 3 Soil Erosion Network Objectives of the Soil Erosion Network are to design and undertake experimental and monitoring programmes of soil erosion and to refine and adapt soil erosion models for use in studies of environmental and climate change. Useful list of links to other soil erosion sites is included. http://mwnta.nmw.ac.uk/GCTEFocus3/networks/erosion.htm
Extractions: Activity 3.3 and other Soils Components Introduction and Rationale S oil erosion is a very widespread phenomenon, and is usually irreversible. Once the nutrient-rich surface soil has been lost, the ability to sustain plant growth is severely reduced, and increased runoff from the more impermeable subsoil results in a decrease in plant-available water. Furthermore, erosion brings various associated "off-site" problems, including reduced water quality from increased sediment loads and poorer air quality due to dust. T he severity, frequency and extent of erosion will be altered by changes in rainfall amount and intensity, and by changes in wind. Global change will thus amplify many current problems of soil erosion, and as certain soil thresholds are exceeded, potentially new and different problems could arise. It is therefore crucial to understand the potential impacts of global change on soils to allow the developments in predictive capability necessary to improve their management in the future. The GCTE Soil Erosion Network is dedicated to this goal, and forms a key component of GCTEs' soil research. Objectives To design and undertake experimental and monitoring programmes to provide a predictive understanding of the impacts of changes in climate and land-use on soil erosion.

Watertown Citizens For Environmental Safety A nonprofit group encouraging citizen involvement in local environmental and safety issues, as well as local action for global change in social justice and peace. http://watertowncitizens.org/
Extractions: email@example.com Watertown's Voice for Peace, the Environment, and Social Justice Watertown Citizens for Environmental Safety (WCES) is a grassroots group formed in Watertown, Massachusetts in 1979, in reaction to the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island, in the belief that local citizens need to monitor the local environment. In the early 1980's, we became Watertown's nuclear freeze group, and we have continued to work on projects that promote environmental safety and sound environmental practices in Watertown, and to support projects which the group judges to promote social justice, world peace, and global security. Over the years, our members have been particularly active, and known in the community, for our participation in the reuse planning and environmental restoration of the Watertown Arsenal, and for our annual commemoration of the bombing of Hiroshima WCES works through a task force structure: Environmental Task Force , including Watertown Walks!
