From the original announcement: Eight years. It’s been now eight years since that poll at the RPG Codex to determine “the best RPGs ever”, which then became a massive list with 72 RPGs, until evolving into a book with over 400 titles.  Overall, I’m extremely happy and grateful for everything that happened – I met a lot of amazing people, the PDF got over 160,000 downloads and the physical book raised £20.992 for charity! This new edition adds new games from 2017-2019, but the goal...

Higher temperatures and evaporative demand forecasted for Colorado forests by the end of the century suggest that soil water limitation increasingly will negatively impact whole plant performance. At the same time, upslope or poleward migration of plant ranges in response to warming may result in species experiencing cooler overnight temperatures, particularly if extremes in climate increase.

Major and trace elements of sediments from two gravity cores (10YDY09 and 12I712) in the northeastern Indian Ocean have been analyzed for sediment provenance and the relationship of the sediments with climate change since 50 ka. The rare earth element (REE) compositions were analyzed, and the sediment contributions were estimated for the major potential sources, including the Ganges-Brahmaputra (G-B), Godavari-Krishna (G-K) and Mahanadi Rivers. Our results showed that the sediments in the study...

Soil organic carbon (OC) sequestration (i.e. the capture and long-term storage of atmospheric CO2) is being considered as a possible solution to mitigate climate change, notably through land use change (conversion of cropped land into pasture) and conservation agricultural practices (reduced tillage). Subsoil horizons (from 30 cm to 1 m) contribute to ca. half the total amount of soil OC, and the slow dynamics of deep OC as well as the relationships between the OC depth distribution and changes...

Grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) is an important dryland pulse crop in many parts of the world. However, productivity and quality are often limited by periods of water deficit. In a number of drought regions, drought is accompanied with zinc (Zn) deficiency, one of the most serious problems causing significant decreases in yield and quality in viticulture. In spite of this fact, possible effect of Zn treatment to alleviate the adverse effect of water stress on grapevines has not been studied. A...

Managing the municipal solid waste (MSW) is a task that requires the combination of multiple strategies in order to follow the concept of circular economy. Waste-to-Energy (WtE) plants are producing electricity and heat but also have other byproducts that need to be disposed or can be reused. The standard method for assessing the WtE plants is the utilization of the R1 formula. The R1 formula has several limitations and is not able to integrate more parameters like the recovery of metals.

Temperature in freshwater ecosystems fluctuates daily, seasonally and yearly. Climate change further induces temperature variations. In this study, we hypothesise that water temperatures, in particular thermal extremes, can significantly influence chemical toxicity to ectothermic organisms.

Diffuse pollution from agriculture and extractive industries reduces air and water quality and contributes to climate change. We consider a setting in which a regulator must incentivize unobserved abatement given that firms have limited liability, and when they can enter and exit. We demonstrate that a simple dynamic incentive scheme can solve this difficult regulatory problem: firms pay a constant tax and receive rebates following periods of low pollution. We apply the model to water pollution...

However, much less is known regarding phenological shifts as a result of other sources of anthropogenic change, such as urban warming.
