Xxxxxxxxxx et al. (2012a) outlined three main types of restocking practices: (i) release of adults after the hunting season to increase the subsequent breeding population, (ii) release of juveniles before the hunting season, to be harvested during the subsequent hunting season, and (iii) release of individuals during the hunting season. In most countries where restocking takes place, regulations or guidance that define best practice are limited or non-existent. Furthermore, current practices differ considerably from one country to another. In France, Mallards mostly come from a handful of breeding facilities that sell day-old ducklings. Such birds are then hand-reared in aviaries in the region of release, which generally occurs at the age of 6–9 weeks, about two months before the start of the hunting season. In order to keep hand-reared Mallard on the hunting estate, the provision of corn, wheat or rice is common practice. Hand-reared Mallard are thus likely to be highly faithful to the place where they were released, at least until the hunting season commences (Xxxxxxxxxx et al. 2009). Swedish game managers have long used Mallard eggs, ducklings, and adults imported from Denmark, which in turn also imports large quantities from abroad, e.g. France (Xxxxxxxxxx et al. 2013). In the Krasnodar and Rostov regions of southern Russia (Azov/Black Sea region) more than 100,000 ducks (thought to be Mallard) have been released annually in recent years by the local hunter associations and these birds are believed to mostly be derived from China where they were harvested as eggs from wild populations (MaMing et al. 2012) and transported to Russia for rearing and release; this practice is feasible due to favourable costs of egg harvesting and transport (Melnikova 2013).
Xxxxxxxxxx et al. 2013), and reduced snow and ice cover during winter may cause low invertebrate productivity in tundra pools or ‘drying out’ of feeding habitat essential for female and duckling survival. Changes in species distributions, such as the expansion of fish that compete with ducklings, may also negatively affect Long-tailed Ducks. Finally, sea level rise may cause the effective loss of habitat at all stages of the life cycle through reductions in the extent of tundra breeding habitats. Furthermore, as a warmer climate reduces winter ice-cover and allows a more hospitable and accessible working environment in the tundra, further increases in anthropogenic activities are anticipated. This could potentially result in direct habitat loss, e.g. through inappropriately sited development of oil and gas infrastructure, increased pollution of key sites, or increased disturbance to breeding and/or moulting birds.

Xxxxxxxxxx et al. (2011) noted that the response of chlorophyl-a to changing nitrogen conditions differs between individual coastal areas. The authors suggest several ecosystem features that could potentially account for this, e.g. differences in tidal ranges, secchi-depth, mixing and the fraction of refractory TN. This suggests that ecosystem characteristics can play an important role in the outcome of restoration projects. The same authors also suggested that shifting baseline (as a result of global change), may explain the reported failure to revert eutrophied coastal ecosystems to their previous state following reduction of nutrient inputs. Summary Several major reasons return in many publications on recovery failure or delay:  Spatial scale must be large enough (catchment).  Temporal scale: there is time needed for recovery.  Multistressors present: mostly only one or a few stressor were tackled, others forgotten.  Confounding abiotic processes affect recovery, such as upstream ‘hidden’ stressors, internal P loading, and biological interactions, like the early arrival of non-native species, but also climate change effects, effects of management and maintenance.  Distance from source populations and lack of connectivity results in dispersal limitations and colonisation barriers.  There is no guiding monitoring that makes evaluation along the development and redirection of measures possible.
Xxxxxxxxxx et al. (2005) found that there was a high prevalence of prejudicial attitudes toward refugees overall in Australia, consistent with previous research and public opinion polls in Australia. However, other research has found support for generally positive attitudes toward refugees and the resettlement program in the U.S. in particular (Xxxxxx & Xxxx 2013). Furthermore, some research has found evidence that the public feels higher levels of anger, fear, threat, and prejudice toward asylum seekers than toward resettled refugees (Xxxxxxx & Xxxxxxxx 2015). Not only have there been a very limited number of studies on attitudes toward refugees and resettlement conducted at all, much less in the U.S, but the research in this area has also primarily been conducted before the Xxxxx administration took office. Thus, public opinion toward refugees and asylum seekers is likely changing and more research is needed to determine general attitudes, as well as to differentiate between types of persecution. Gendered claims of asylum With a discussion of past studies on attitudes toward asylum seekers in mind, including their limitations, we will now take a deeper look at the literature on gendered claims of asylum. There is very little empirical research on gendered claims of asylum, in part because gender has not been commonly linked to refugees and migration, nor has enough attention been paid to the unique needs of women as asylum seekers and refugees (Xxxxxxx 2001). But gendered claims of asylum are in fact protected by international law; the UNHCR has recognized that women and girls require special protections in asylum procedures (UNHCR Asylum Lawyers Project 2016). In 1991, the UNHCR published Guidelines on the Protection of Refugee Women, formally detailing these special protections and specifying that women fearing persecution on the basis of gender constitute a social group upon which an asylum claim can be based (UNHCR 1991). In 2002, the UNHCR specified its guidelines on gender-related persecution in alignment with the 1951 Convention and the 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees (UNHCR Asylum Lawyers Project 2016). The research that does exist in this area is primarily of a legal nature, analyzing how gendered claims of asylum are received in domestic courts. U.S. case law has established that gender can be among the defining characteristics of a social group (Musalo and Knight 2003) or of political asylum (Xxxxxxx 2001). In 1995, the U.S. established guideli...
Xxxxxxxxxx et al. Leaders and laggards in environmental policy 679 . Influencing future international legislation. The implementation of inter- national regulation which does not match existing national arrangements may incur considerable adjustment costs. States that are able to push their own regulatory model at the international level may avoid such adjustment costs (He´ritier 1996; Xxxxx and Xxxxxxxx 2000). Downloaded by [Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen] at 04:52 09 July 2012 The above political motivations can be very helpful in explaining regulatory action and international leadership in specific cases. Most of them, however, are dependent on the issue at stake; for example, the seriousness and perception of a particular environmental problem or the structure of industry in a specific branch. One may wonder if policy leaders or pioneer countries themselves also have certain features in common which may help to explain their behaviour. Ja¨nicke (2005) proposes a sequence of domestic factors that might be relevant for developing a pioneer role and provides specific expectations as to their impact:
