Phosphorus leaching from riparian soils with differing management histories under three grass species @article{https://doi.org/10.1002/jeq2.20037, author= {Roberts, William M. and George, Timothy S. and Stutter, Marc I. and Louro, Aránzazu and Ali, Mustafa and Haygarth, Philip M.}, title= {Phosphorus leaching from riparian soils with differing management histories under three grass species}, journal= {Journal of Environmental Quality}, volume= {49}, number= {1}, pages= {74-84}, doi= {https://doi.org/10.1002/jeq2.20037}, url= {https://acsess.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/jeq2.20037}, eprint= {https://acsess.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1002/jeq2.20037}, abstract= {Abstract Plants release carbon-based exudates from their roots into the rhizosphere to increase phosphorus (P) supply to the soil solution. However, if more P than required is brought into solution, additional P could be available for leaching from riparian soils. To investigate this further, soil columns containing a riparian arable and buffer strip soil, which differed in organic matter contents, were sown with three common agricultural and riparian grass species. The P loads in leachate were measured and compared with those from unplanted columns, which were 0.17 ± 0.01 and 0.89 ± 0.04 mg kg−1 for the arable and buffer strip soil, respectively. A mixture of ryegrass and red fescue significantly (p ≤ .05) increased dissolved inorganic P loads in leachate from the arable (0.23 ± 0.01 mg kg−1) and buffer strip soil (1.06 ± 0.05 mg kg−1), whereas barley significantly reduced P leaching from the buffer strip soil (0.53 ± 0.08 mg kg−1). This was dependent on the dissolved organic C released under different plant species and on interactions with soil management history and biogeochemical conditions, rather than on plant uptake of P and accumulation into biomass. This suggested that the amount and forms of P present in the soil and the ability of the plants to mobilize them could be key factors in determining how plants affect leaching of soil P. Selecting grass species for different stages of buffer strip development, basing species selection on root physiological traits, and correcting soil nutrient stoichiometry in riparian soils through vegetative mining could help to lower this contribution.}, year= {2020}} .

Field lessons in surveying healthcare waste management activities in Pakistan @article{PMID:31054232, Title= {Field lessons in surveying healthcare waste management activities in Pakistan}, Author= {Ali, Mustafa}, DOI= {10.26719/emhj.18.024}, Number= {3}, Volume= {25}, Month= {April}, Year= {2019}, Journal= {Eastern Mediterranean health journal = La revue de sante de la Mediterranee orientale = al-Majallah al-sihhiyah li-sharq al-mutawassit}, ISSN= {1020-3397}, Pages= {213—217}, Abstract= {<h4>Background</h4>Developing countries face difficulties in implementing safe healthcare waste management (HWM) practices. It is important to holistically probe the ground situation to meet this challenge.<h4>Aims</h4>This study aimed to examine HWM practices in public and private healthcare institutions in Pakistan.<h4>Methods</h4>In this study we surveyed 12 public and private hospitals in a major city of Pakistan, Gujranwala. The survey consisted of waste characterization as well as targeted interviews using standardized questionnaires.<h4>Results</h4>The results indicated issues including lack of waste segregation, lack of sufficient knowledge and awareness regarding HWM and a high prevalence of Hepatitis C among hospital housekeeping staff. We also discovered that organizational and administrative solutions for effective HWM are as important as preventive monitoring and control.<h4>Conclusions</h4>Apart from technical improvement, behavioural changes are vital for a positive change regarding HWM. Overall, this study led to an increased awareness of public health issues related to HWM that had hitherto gone unnoticed by hospital staff as well as relevant public authorities in the city.}, URL= {https://doi.org/10.26719/emhj.18.024}} .
