Маски для лица из мяты

Мята полевая  встречается  в основном по берегам рек, озер и в оврагах, на пойменных лугах. Это одно из самых душистых видов растений. Из-за своего обычного местопребывания и получила она название ’’мента” Но наибольшее практическое значение имеет все-таки мята перечная культурное растение, являющееся гибридом мяты лесной, круглолистной, водяной и зеленой. Мята перечная — многолетнее травянистое растение высотой […]

Another vertebrate species reported extinct from the Hawaiian Islands

A species of lizard is now extinct from the Hawaiian Islands, making it the latest native vertebrate species to become extirpated from this tropical archipelago. The copper striped blue-tailed skink (Emoia impar) — a sleek lizard with smooth, polished scales and a long, sky-blue tail — was last confirmed in the Na’Pali coast of Kauai […]

Some corals like it hot: Heat stress may help coral reefs survive climate change

Some corals like it hot: Heat stress may help coral reefs survive climate change

A team of international scientists working in the central Pacific has discovered that coral which has survived heat stress in the past is more likely to survive it in the future. The study, published March 30 in the journal PLoS ONE, paves the way towards an important road map on the impacts of ocean warming, […]

Prefectul judetului Calarasi, Emil Musat, a afirmat ca s-a incercat tragerea barjei de pe apa, insa in zadar, […]

Extreme weather threatens rich ecosystems

Extreme weather threatens rich ecosystems

Extreme weather such as hurricanes, torrential downpours and droughts will become more frequent in pace with global warming. Consequently, this increases the risk for species extinction, especially in bio diverse ecosystems such as coral reefs and tropical rainforests. Human impact means that flora and fauna become extinct at a rate 100–1000 times higher than normal. […]

Celestial compass obscured by urban light pollution for some nocturnal animals.

Celestial compass obscured by urban light pollution for some nocturnal animals.

Urban light pollution has been shown to reduce the visibility of not only the stars, but also of an important navigational signal for some nocturnal animals. During clear moonlit nights, a compass-like pattern of polarized light that is invisible to the human eye stretches across the sky. The nighttime skyglow over major cities renders this […]

Increasing water scarcity in California’s Bay-Delta will necessitate trade-offs; ‘Hard decisions’ needed to balance various environmental risks

Increasing water scarcity in California’s Bay-Delta will necessitate trade-offs; ‘Hard decisions’ needed to balance various environmental risks

Simultaneously attaining a reliable water supply for California and protecting and rehabilitating its Bay-Delta ecosystem cannot be realized until better planning can identify how trade-offs between these two goals will be managed when water is limited, says a new report from the National Research Council.Recent efforts have been ineffective in meeting these goals because management […]
