AbstractThis is an interactive learning object that looks at different aspects of green plants. It has four sections: plant adaptations; plant nutrition; transport and water relations; plant hormones and minerals. 'Plant adaptations' covers adaptations in angiosperms, focusing particularly on the elements of the leaf structure. 'Plant nutrition' covers photosynthesis, and 'Transport and water relations' includes information on the structure of the stem and roots, and the role of xylem and phloem in transport. The 'Plant hormones and minerals section' covers auxins, phototropism, geotrophism and mineral and hormone usage. The learning object is navigated interactively via a series of menus and icons. It is is highly illustrated throughout.

Turkey’s Energy Transition Milestones and ChallengesWorld Bank (Washington, DC, 2015-11-09)Through a variety of interlinked measures, Turkey’s energy reforms have achieved energy security for a fast-growing economy with rapidly increasing energy needs. These measures include legislation regarding electricity, gas, renewable energy, and energy efficiency; the establishment of an energy sector regulatory authority; energy price reform; the creation of a functional electricity market and large-scale introduction of natural gas; the restructuring of state-owned energy enterprises; and large-scale private sector participation through privatization and new investment. The objectives of this are to: (a) inform future energy reforms and reformers seeking to learn and benefit from Turkey’s experience, and (b) contribute to the dialogue on future energy reforms in Turkey. The report will present Turkey’s accomplishments in developing and implementing market-oriented energy reforms as well as selected key reform challenges going forward. In terms of reform milestones, the primary focus is on the electric power and natural gas sectors, although energy pricing and subsidies in the petroleum sector are also addressed. The report covers mainly the period starting from 2001, when progressive electricity and natural gas market laws were enacted, though the preceding period - from the opening of the energy sector to private investment in 1984 up to the enactment of the new energy market laws in 2001 - is covered briefly to present key milestones and to highlight key lessons. In terms of future challenges, the report discusses the ongoing and unfinished liberalization of the electricity and gas markets as well as required government support, including governance, in the energy sector. The challenges include the reform of the natural gas market, further development of the electricity market, and governance issues in the energy sector. Discussion of environmental and social issues and challenges has been integrated into the relevant sections.
Thirsty EnergyRodriguez, Diego J.; Sohns, Antonia; DeLaquil, Pat; Delgado, Anna (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2013-06)The tradeoffs between energy and water have been gaining international attention in recent years as demand for both resources mount and governments continue to struggle to ensure reliable supply to meet sectoral needs. As almost all energy generation processes require significant amounts of water, and water requires energy for treatment and transport, these two resources are inextricably linked. This relationship is the energy-water nexus. Section one of this paper examines the existing models, literature, and management frameworks on the nexus, as it seeks to determine what gaps exist. Section two describes the water demands of power generation in order to identify potential areas of future uncertainty and delineate areas where integrated energy-water management may improve the reliability of operating power plants and the viability of schemes. Finally, section three describes possible solutions that may alleviate challenges resulting from the link between energy and water by improving energy efficiency and integrating water resources management into energy planning.
