  • the science–policy interface in order to optimize the generation of user-friendly knowledge of those elements of biodiversity that are considered politically and economically relevant. It concludes that measurementality is part and parcel of the neoliberal
  • paradigm in which science produces the raw materials for subsequent control and exchange and that, as a result, the intersection of science, discourse, policy, and economics within these governance systems requires sustained critical scrutiny.

  • and discussed. It is possible to point out that the different types of land use (forestry, nature conservation, water management and hydropower) within a river and its adjacent floodplain can only be brought together by an optimized control of the restoration
  • This paper explains the importance of a controlled water management of sluice gates for the interplay between river and an artificially connected floodplain. First results of the hydrological monitoring can be achieved by the interpretation
  • measures themselves. The possibilities and constraints of an optimum discharge control, the major objective of this research, are discussed.

  • This paper examines the socially optimal (and also equilibrium) locations of two stores or libraries on a linear market of unit length. If each consumer has probability of finding a desired product at each store, then the socially optimal locations
  • are never completely centralized for full information, but are completely centralized for when costly visit search is necessary. The Nash equilibrium locations of two stores, and various alternative models for the socially optimal locations of two stores

  • This paper develops a two-dimensional spatial framework, in which firms have the technique of flexible manufacturing and engage in spatially discriminatory pricing, in order to explore the firms’ optimal locations and optimal attributes of basic
  • products under linear transportation costs. It shows that the two firms will agglomerate at the center of the location line and the optimal attributes of the two basic products will be located at the first and third quartiles of the attribute line
  • , respectively, when the ratio of the marginal modification rate to the transport rate is high. It also shows that they will locate separately on the location line and that the optimal attributes of the two basic products will remain at the first and third
