Hunting gives deer-damaged forests in state parks a shot at recovery

Regulated deer hunts in Indiana state parks have helped restore the health of forests suffering from decades of damage caused by overabundant populations of white-tailed deer, a Purdue study shows. A research team led by Michael Jenkins, associate professor of forest ecology, found that a 17-year-long Indiana Department of Natural Resources policy of organizing hunts [...]

Zebra, quagga mussels trump pollution as change agents in Lake Erie

Zebra, quagga mussels trump pollution as change agents in Lake Erie

Researchers find that invasive species, such as zebra mussels, have affected the composition of Lake Erie’s zoobenthic community more than pollution has. In 1986, the zebra mussel was detected in Lake Erie, followed in 1989 by Dreissena rostriformis, the quagga mussel. “The zebra and quagga mussels are ecosystem engineers,” said researchers, explaining that both are [...]

Frog larvae have developed rapid defenses against red swamp crayfish

Frog larvae have developed rapid defenses against red swamp crayfish

  The common frog is one of the amphibians with the highest distribution in the Iberian Peninsula. It reproduces preferably in permanent areas of water where it comes into contact with the red swamp crayfish, which preys on its larvae. Research confirms that the larvae of these frogs have developed a defensive response to the [...]

Din cauza vremii nefavorabile operatiunile de filmare subacvatica si cele de montare a barajului antipoluant [...]

Mesophotic coral reef geology the focus of new study

Mesophotic coral reef geology the focus of new study

A new study on biological erosion of mesophotic tropical coral reefs, which are low energy reef environments between 30-150 meters deep, provides new insights into processes that affect the overall structure of these important ecosystems. The purpose of the study was to better understand how bioerosion rates and distribution of bioeroding organisms, such as fish, [...]

Подводный робот будет расследовать утечку радиации на АЭС Индиан-Пойнт

Подводный робот будет расследовать утечку радиации на АЭС Индиан-Пойнт

После утечки радиации, которая еще в марте этого года была обнаружена на атомной электростанции Индиан-Пойнт в Бьюкенене, штат Нью-Йорк, чиновники наконец-то планируют исследовать источник проблемы с помощью подводного робота. На следующей неделе власти штата собираются развернуть робота, оборудованного камерами, для поиска источника радиоактивной утечки. Впервые проблема была обнаружена, когда в двух контрольных скважинах оказались повышенные [...]

Teroristii din Irak au pus mana pe materiale nucleare

Irakul a anuntat ca “grupurile teroriste” au obtinut materiale nucleare utilizate pentru cercetarea stiintifica la o universitate din nordul tarii. Trimisul irakian la ONU a facut un apel pentru ajutor, cu scopul de a “stavili amenintarea folosirii lor de catre teroristii din Irak sau din alte parti”. Potrivit ambasadorului irakian la ONU, Mohamed Ali Alhakim, [...]

Habitat loss, not poison, better explains grassland bird decline

Habitat loss, not poison, better explains grassland bird decline

Contrary to recent well-publicized research, habitat loss, not insecticide use, continues to be the best explanation for the declines in grassland bird populations in the U.S. since the 1980s, according to a new study by ecologists. Last year, a pair of researchers linked the drop in the populations of grassland bird species to insecticide use, [...]

Тысячи людей в Детройте остались без воды, не имея возможности заплатить за услуги

Тысячи людей в Детройте остались без воды, не имея возможности заплатить за услуги

Эксперты по правам человека от Организации Объединенных Наций на днях выразили озабоченность по поводу сообщений о широкомасштабных отключениях воды по всему городу Детройту – в домашних хозяйствах, которые не имеют все шансы оплатить счета за воду. Эксперты считают, что отключение услуг водоснабжения из-за неуплаты в связи с отсутствием средств у плательщика представляет собой прямое нарушение [...]
