Policy sciences and democracy: a reexamination

, which promised 'contributions reflecting all aspects of the policy sciences in all forms-think pieces, case studies, ideological essays, tirades, and historical surveys' (1970: 2). Yet, how can such ... policy sciences conceived by Harold D. Lasswell. To reexamine here the relationship between policy sciences and democracy (cf. Dryzek and Torgerson 1993), we need to focus on key elements of that framework

Bringing Darwin into the social sciences and the humanities: cultural evolution and its philosophical implications

Furthermore, we explain how they add to the discussions about the ... also justify immoral phenomena such as social inequality, racism, and colonialism. The scientific and moral failure of these projects resulted in a popular resentment in the social sciences and the

Double-edged sword of interdisciplinary knowledge flow from hard sciences to humanities and social sciences: Evidence from China

Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) increasingly absorb knowledge from Hard Sciences, i.e., Science, Technology, Agriculture and Medicine (STAM), as testified by a growing number of citations ... own disciplines [ 4 ]. It is beneficial for the understanding of interdisciplinary knowledge flow to explore the impact of integrating knowledge from Hard Sciences (HS), including Science, Technology

Attractiveness of Host Plant Volatile Extracts to the Asian Citrus Psyllid,

insect behaviour through deployment of semiochemicals offers a promising opportunity for protecting citrus crops. The behavioural responses of D. citri to plant volatiles, and the identity of these plant ... . occidentale make this species unattractive to D. citri, and that the terpenoids could be used in reducing colonisation of citrus plants and therefore HLB infection.

Multi-objective optimisation of reliable product-plant network configuration

generic measure for evaluating the reliability of a network of plants in a given product-plant configuration. Second, we frame the problem as a multi-objective evolutionary optimisation model to show that ... assembly plants show some degree of redundancy. Most plants build more than one product type and some products are built in more than one plant (Jordan and Graves 1995, Brintrup et al. 2016) . Few studies

The role of plant hormones during grafting

For millennia, people have cut and joined different plant tissues together through a process known as grafting. By creating a chimeric organism, desirable properties from two plants combine to ... remains elusive. Here, we discuss specifically the role of eight major plant hormones during the wound healing and vascular formation process, two phenomena involved in grafting. We furthermore present the

Stability lies in flowers: Plant diversification mediating shifts in arthropod food webs

Arthropod community composition in agricultural landscapes is dependent on habitat characteristics, such as plant composition, landscape homogeneity and the presence of key resources, which are ... sufficient to describe changes in community structure, mainly by ignoring interaction between species [ 17 ]. Moreover, these descriptors are superficial and may be of little use describing plant/crop
