    Proficiency testing of laboratories for paralytic shelfish poisoning toxons in shellfish by QUASIMEME: A review
    Burrell, S. ; Crum, S.J.H. ; Foley, B. ; Turner, A. - \ 2016
    TrAC : Trends in Analytical Chemistry 75 (2016). - ISSN 0165-9936 - p. 10 - 23.
    Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) toxins are some of the most toxic substances known to man and consumption of shellfish containing these naturally-occurring neurotoxins can lead to a range of different symptoms including death in extreme cases. It is imperative therefore, to implement robust shellfish monitoring programs to minimise the possibility of contaminated product reaching the marketplace. To improve the quality assurance of these programs, QUASIMEME, the proficiency test provider added to its scope PSP toxins in shellfish. Since 2009, six proficiency testing exercises have been delivered by QUASIMEME with a total of thirty-four different laboratories submitting data using a range of different methods. These include animal and antibody based assays, together with High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) techniques using post and pre-column oxidation and more recently LC-MS/MS methodologies. Data from these exercises is presented and laboratory performance is assessed to determine any changes in overall performance over the six rounds, together with any potential method-related performance issues. The data showed the improvement of laboratories over the six exercises with between laboratory CV% values decreasing from an average of 39% in the first year to 22% in 2014 and the average percentage of participants receiving satisfactory z-scores increasing from 50% in 2009 to over 66% in 2014.
    Evaluating agri-environmental schemes using a spatially explicit agent-based modelling approach
    Schouten, M.A.H. ; Polman, N.B.P. ; Westerhof, E.J.G.M. ; Opdam, P.F.M. - \ 2012
    In: Evaluation of Agri-Environmental Policies: Selected Methodological Issues and Case Studies. - Paris : OECD - ISBN 9789264179332 - p. 171 - 184.
    Networks of nature reserves are being proposed as a solution when the degree of fragmentation is considered to endanger the long-term persistence of species diversity. Agri-environmental schemes are supposed to make a positive contribution to these networks. The spatially explicit agent-based model presented in this chapter combines spatial dynamics in land ownership, land use and the importance of agri-environmental schemes in conserving biodiversity by capturing the heterogeneity of individual farms as well as their dynamics over time, in a spatially explicit landscape. The chapter evaluates the effects of two different agri-environmental policies at landscape level, and shows that agri-environmental schemes with flexible payments based on a spatial landscape configuration can be valuable for agri-environmental policy development.

    Evaluation of the Environmental Impact of Milk Quotas

    The aim of this study is to examine the environmental impacts of the different systems for allocation and transfer of milk quota under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) in individual Member States of the European Union (EU). In particular, it seeks to identify the ways in which differences in the implementation of milk quota regimes can impact on various sectoral and farm management trends and the environmental implications of these.
    Turkey

    In: Distortions to Agricultural Incentives in Europe's Transition Economies / Anderson, K., Swinnen, J., Washington : World Bank - ISBN 9780821374191 - p. 91 - 132.
    This chapter provides an overview of the evolution of Turkey¿s agricultural policies in recent decades, examines the extent to which these policies may have distorted incentives, and attempts an explanation of the underlying forces that have driven the process and conditioned the results. The review period for the assessment begins in 1961 and continues up to 2007. To explain the situation prevailing at the start of this period, various trends and policy preferences are traced to earlier decades. Turkey experienced rapid population growth in the second half of the 20th century. Although the population more than tripled between 1950 and 2004, heavy out-migration to urban areas and overseas meant that the rural population grew at half that rate. The agricultural workforce fell from 84 percent of the working population in 1950 to 60 percent in 1970 and 34 percent in 2004. Despite healthy real growth rates for the economy as a whole, the economic performance of agriculture was poor. Average annual real growth rates in agriculture were around 1.6 percent in the 1970s, 0.6 percent in the 1980s, and 1.5 percent in the 1990s. In 1950, agriculture¿s share in gross national product was 41 percent, but, by 2004, it stood at only 12 percent. In the past 25 years, agriculture has experienced negative real growth in more than one year out of every three years. In 2002, nearly 20 percent of the rural population showed consumption levels 50 percent or more below the national average, and 36 percent of the population dependent on agriculture was living below the food and nonfood poverty lines (SIS 2004). And, yet, Turkish agriculture was highly supported throughout the closing decades of the 20th century. Total support to the sector exceeded 5 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) in some years. This chapter attempts to throw light on this enigma.
    Art of science? The challenges of publishing peer reviewed papers based on linked models
    Burrell, A.M. - \ 2008
    Agrarwirtschaft 57 (2008)8. - ISSN 0515-6866 - p. 391 - 394.
    The methodology used in a linked model system is generally too voluminous and of insufficient interest to form the basis of a peer-reviewed journal article. To be readily acceptable to an economics journal, the simulation results should provide economic insight and contribute to the economics literature.

    The European Union will begin accession negotiations with Turkey in October 2005. Agriculture, food and rural issues will play a major role in the negotiations, raising questions about the consequences of EU membership for Turkey's agricultural sector and rural population. This book presents a comprehensive description of Turkey's agricultural, food and rural sectors. Focusing on institutional arrangements, performance and economic prospects. Topics dealt with include agricultural production, prices and policies, agricultural trade, environmental issues, animal and plant health, and conditions in rural areas. The book explores the possible consequences of accession, both for Turkey and for the European Union.
