The dairy cow: Understanding the sustainable production


Issue 33- March, 2021

Deadline: November 30th, 2020

Thematic editors:

Approaching agricultural production from a reductionist perspective focuses the attention on a few isolated variables, not recognizing the interactions between the component parts. The production of dairy cattle does not escape this logic, in which the mechanisms associated with productivity and overall efficiency are not understood, as well as the dynamics of their properties over time.

In this sense, this special issue of La Granja aims to reevaluate an integrative perspective that would permit a systemic interpretation, emphasizing the sustainability of the systems from the economic-productive, environmental and social aspects.

Using an interdisciplinary approach to better understand how to support the best practice in animal welfare and quality of life, La Granja invites researchers to present original and high-quality research articles and review articles focused on different components of the production system:

1.- Reproduction and adaptation.

2.- Nutrition and management.

3.- Animal Welfare and longevity.

4.- Ecosystem and production.

5.- Economics and system.

6.- Others.

Geospatial Science


Issue 34- September, 2021

Deadline: April 1st, 2021

Thematic Editors
PhD. Ana Claudia Teodoro, Universidade do Porto (Portugal)
PhD. Norma Beltrão, University of Para State (Brazil)

We are glad to announce the Special Issue of "La Granja" about Geospatial Science. This topic is a high relevant field in several research areas, as agriculture, environment, cartography, epidemiology, and others. For example, during the last months several Geospatial Sciences, as geographical information systems (GIS) and remote sensing (RS) have been used to map the Covid-19 around the world, showing us the importance of the spatial analysis. In this context, the Geospatial Science is transversal to several research areas. The focus is the use of information technology to develop the geography fields using to find people, locations, and the different social or physics earth processes. Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), RS and GIS allow to develop the applications in the field of Geospatial Sciences. This Special Issue "Geospatial Science" aims to cover recent developments in these fields. The submitted papers should have an important contribution and an innovative application of the Geospatial Sciences in their different fields.

The topics include, but not limited to the following:
1. GIS applied to environmental sciences
2. Remote sensing
3. Geodesy and GNSS
4. UAV
5. Cartography
6. Geospatial databases
7. Others

Note: The manuscripts can be written in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.
