    No place to hide: Limited forest cover hampers the availability of suitable habitat for lynx in the Netherlands
    Lelieveld, G. ; Bodegom, Peter van; Wamelink, G.W.W. - \ 2019
    Lutra 62 (2019)1. - ISSN 0024-7634 - p. 31 - 38.
    In Europe, centuries-long of overharvesting and hunting of large herbivores and carnivores has resulted in extinctions of large mammals, such as the lynx (Lynx lynx). With the expansion of lynx distributions via recolonisation and reintroduction programmes, it is possible that the lynx will again recolonise the Netherlands. This study identified the most important predictors for lynx habitat suitability in the Netherlands and areas in the Netherlands where the ecological requirements of the lynx are met. The habitat suitability model showed that forest cover is the most important factor limiting the potential for the lynx in the Netherlands. The model shows that only four patches with suitable habitat of sufficient size to support at least one female lynx. Only one patch, covering the Veluwe, has enough room for four female territories and one male territory. The total range of suitable lynx habitat in the Netherlands amounts to 1054 square kilometres, although these patches are disconnected. While the species’ selectiveness for forest might decrease over time through increased plasticity, the Netherlands has a very limited of amount of forestland, which is highly fragmented. We therefore conclude that the Netherlands’ fragmented forests are not suitable for sustaining a viable lynx population at this moment.
    Habitat Suitability Analysis for the golden jackal (Canis aureus) in the Netherlands
    Wennink, J. ; Lelieveld, G. ; Knegt, H.J. de; Klees, D.J.C. - \ 2019
    Lutra 62 (2019)1. - ISSN 0024-7634 - p. 13 - 29.
    The golden jackal (Canis aureus) is expanding its range towards Northern and Western Europe. In these parts of Europe, there is a lack of substantial knowledge about this animal’s ecology and habitat requirements. The aim of this study was to determine the potential location and numbers of territories in the Netherlands suitable for the golden jackal. This article uses a literature study to review the habitat requirements of the golden jackal. Factors such as diet, roads, habitat size, land use and potential wolf (Canis lupus) territories were taken into account to assess the quality of potential habitat for golden jackal in a Habitat Suitability Analysis (HSA). Maps of the Netherlands were created to visualise possible core areas, highly suitable, and suitable areas. The main factors limiting establishment of the golden jackal would seem to be urbanisation and the presence of wolves. The results show that core areas in the Netherlands could support more than a hundred family groups, while highly suitable areas could potentially support an additional 150 family groups. The remaining suitable areas were found to be able to support up to around 1200 more family groups. In total, the Netherlands could support around 1450 golden jackal family groups, although the re-establishment of wolves could decrease these numbers to around 800 golden jackal family groups. This study only considered the most important parameters, which were set quite conservatively, so it is likely that our assessment of the amount of suitable habitat and potential golden jackal numbers are an underestimation.
    Werkveld Veldwerk: Interview met Arjen de Groot
    Groot, Arjen de - \ 2019

    Natuurstudies, zoals ecologie, (toegepaste) biologie, diermanagement en bos- en natuurbeheer, oriënteren zich op het bestuderen van de levende natuur. Maar welke werkvelden zijn er hierin te betreden en wat voor veldwerk komt er bij kijken? Met deze rubriek willen we een stukje 'inside' informatie verschaffen over de verschillende werkvelden, beroepsmatig ofwel vrijwillig, die zich bezighouden met het bestuderen van zoogdieren.

    EU regulatory approach to high-pressure processing
    Kurowska, Aneta ; Szajkowska, Anna ; Meulen, Bernd van der - \ 2016
    In: High Pressure Processing of Food / Balasubramaniam, V.M., Barbosa-Cánovas, G.V., Lelieveld, H.L.M., New York : Springer (Food Engineering Series ) - ISBN 9781493932337 - p. 717 - 732.
    European regulations - High-pressure processing - Hygiene - Novel foods

    This chapter focuses on the application of the Novel Foods Regulation to high-pressure-treated foods. It highlights some other EU requirements applicable to HPP. The chapter first describes the general requirements for foodstuffs set out in the so-called EU General Food Law. We then analyze the provisions of the Novel Foods Regulation applicable to HPP in more detail. The relevant provisions regarding hygiene of high-pressure-treated foodstuffs and their labelling are discussed. Finally, the Directive concerning pressure equipment is presented.

    Daytime formation of nitrous acid at a coastal remote site in Cyprus indicating a common ground source of atmospheric HONO and NO
    Meusel, Hannah ; Kuhn, Uwe ; Reiffs, Andreas ; Mallik, Chinmay ; Harder, Hartwig ; Martinez, Monica ; Schuladen, Jan ; Bohn, Birger ; Parchatka, Uwe ; Crowley, John N. ; Fischer, Horst ; Tomsche, Laura ; Novelli, Anna ; Hoffmann, Thorsten ; Janssen, Ruud H.H. ; Hartogensis, Oscar ; Pikridas, Michael ; Vrekoussis, Mihalis ; Bourtsoukidis, Efstratios ; Weber, Bettina ; Lelieveld, Jos ; Williams, Jonathan ; Pöschl, Ulrich ; Cheng, Yafang ; Su, Hang - \ 2016
    Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics 16 (2016)22. - ISSN 1680-7316 - p. 14475 - 14493.

    Characterization of daytime sources of nitrous acid (HONO) is crucial to understand atmospheric oxidation and radical cycling in the planetary boundary layer. HONO and numerous other atmospheric trace constituents were measured on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus during the CYPHEX (Cyprus PHotochemical EXperiment) campaign in summer 2014. Average volume mixing ratios of HONO were 35 pptv (±25 pptv) with a HONO/NOx ratio of 0.33, which was considerably higher than reported for most other rural and urban regions. Diel profiles of HONO showed peak values in the late morning (60 ± 28 pptv around 09:00 local time) and persistently high mixing ratios during daytime (45 ± 18 pptv), indicating that the photolytic loss of HONO is compensated by a strong daytime source. Budget analyses revealed unidentified sources producing up to 3.4 × 106 molecules cm-3 s-1 of HONO and up to 2.0 × 107 molecules cm-3 s-1 NO. Under humid conditions (relative humidity 2 Combining double low line 0.72), suggesting a common source that may be attributable to emissions from microbial communities on soil surfaces.

    Improving Hygiene in Food Transportation
    Thoden van Velzen, E.U. ; Lukasse, L.J.S. - \ 2016
    In: Handbook of Hygiene Control in the Food Industry: Second Edition / Lelieveld, Huub, Holah, John, Gabrić, Domagoj, Tokyo : Woodhead Publishing - ISBN 9780081001974 - p. 383 - 388.
    The hygiene aspect of food transport has become an issue for European transport operators. This development started roughly in 1990, when national governments urged transport operators to act on food safety. However, nowadays retailers and food producers are demanding more hygiene measures from transport operators. Transport operators need to fulfill an increasing number of hygiene schemes to be allowed to participate in transport tenders of the large retailers and food producers.
    Managing the Risks of Food Intended for Consumption by Religious Consumers
    Rijn, I. Van; Vintila, Iuliana ; Regenstein, Joe M. - \ 2016
    In: Handbook of Hygiene Control in the Food Industry: Second Edition / Lelieveld, Huub, Holah, John, Gabrić, Domagoj, Elsevier Inc. Academic Press - ISBN 9780081001974 - p. 191 - 195.
    Since the production of food intended for consumption by religious consumers has increased, the need for clarity about the religious requirements and the risks involved is increasing. Some of these religious requirements find their origin in hygenic and/or food safety measures related to an adverse health effect, and some may refer to an adverse spiritual health effect.

    In general, religious dietary law is present in the holy book of a particular religion. Because of differences in the levels of regulation and their interpretation, it is not always clear which requirements should be met and which risks need to be covered. To be able to assure the credible quality of the food, therefore, food companies rely on the expertise of religious leaders/organizations and/or certification bodies.
    The Range of Microbial Risks in Food Processing
    Zwietering, M.H. ; Straver, J.M. ; Asselt, E.D. van - \ 2016
    In: Handbook of Hygiene Control in the Food Industry: Second Edition / Lelieveld, Huub, Holah, John, Gabrić, Domagoj, Elsevier Inc. Academic Press - ISBN 9780081001974 - p. 43 - 54.
    Foodborne illnesses can be caused by a wide range of microorganisms. Data analysis can help to determine which microorganisms give the highest contribution to the number of foodborne illnesses. This helps to decide which pathogen(s) to focus on in order to reduce the number of illnesses. The same accounts for the products that are related to foodborne illnesses. Quantitative microbiology can be used in assessing food safety in a farm-to-fork approach. Evaluating the estimated effect of various control strategies can help to decide which combination of strategies in the chain is most effective and efficient to achieve a certain food safety objective. The potential of data analysis and quantitative microbiology is clear, yet more work needs to be done to incorporate recontamination in predictive models. The models available at the moment, although simple, can already be applied to determine the importance of (re)contamination compared with growth and inactivation of pathogens
    Consumer Perceptions of Risks From Food
    Frewer, Lynn J. ; Fischer, A.R.H. ; Kaptan, Gulbanu - \ 2016

    High pressure effects on fruits and vegetables
    Timmermans, R.A.H. ; Matser, A.M. - \ 2016
    In: High Pressure Processing of Food. Principles, Technology and Applications / Balasubramaniam, V.M., Barbosa-Cánovas, G.V., Lelieveld, H.L.M., New York : Springer (Food Engineering Series ) - ISBN 9781493932337 - p. 541 - 551.
    The chapter provides an overview on different high pressure based treatments (high pressure pasteurization, blanching, pressure-assisted thermal processing, pressure-shift freezing and thawing) available for the preservation of fruits and vegetable products and extending their shelf life. Pressure treatment can be used for product modification through pressure gelatinization of starch and pressure denaturation of proteins. Key pressure–thermal treatment effects on vitamin, enzymes, flavor, color, and texture of fruits and vegetable are discussed.
    Food Safety Regulations Applied to Traditional and Ethnic Foods
    Meulen, B.M.J. van der; Juanjuan, Sun ; Carvajal, Ricardo ; Kite, Jonathon ; Costa Dias, Thiago - \ 2016
    In: Regulating Safety in Traditional and Ethnic Foods / Prakash, Vishweshwaraiah, Martín-Belloso, Olga, Keener, Larry, Astley, Sian, Braun, Susanne, Mcmahon, Helena, Lelieveld, Huub, Waltham : Academic Press Elsevier - ISBN 9780128006054 - p. 441 - 466.
    Traditional and ethnic foods are characterized by their history. By this category, they are usually considered safe on the basis of experience within the jurisdiction where they are indigenous. Elsewhere they may face authorization requirements.

    Foods characterized by historical production methods may face challenges from modern food hygiene legislation. In some situations, exemptions apply that enable the continuation of traditional practices, despite food safety concerns.

    This chapter explores how food law addresses one or both of these issues in the United States, Australia and New Zealand, Brazil, China, and the European Union (EU). From the perspective of global harmonization, it is preferable for national systems to take account of experience elsewhere and to be flexible toward nonindustrial ways of production.

    Unexpected green is the future
    Lelieveld, C.M.J.L. ; Holz Amorim de Sena, N.H. - \ 2014
    The urban space of the future will merge with green in unexpected ways and in unexpected places, forming resilient and remarkably surprising cities. Urban discussions currently start in a similar way: the population of cities will grow, cities are responsible for great part of gas emissions, how to deal with increasing urbanisation, etcetera. The World is undoubtedly becoming more and more urban. As the United Nations presented the facts: ‘by 2030 all developing regions, including Asia and Africa, will have more people living in urban than rural areas. In the next 20 years, Homo sapiens, “the wise human”, will become Homo sapiens urbanus in virtually all regions of the planet’. In all these discussions cities are often approached as a problem. We live in cities, we are attracted by them. Why are we so pessimistic about our own urban living space?
