Global warming refuge discovered near at-risk Pacific island nation of Kiribati

Global warming refuge discovered near at-risk Pacific island nation of Kiribati

Scientists predict ocean temperatures will rise in the equatorial Pacific by the end of the century, wreaking havoc on coral reef ecosystems. But a new study shows that climate change could cause ocean currents to operate in a way that mitigates warming near a handful of islands right on the equator. Those islands include some […]

Science fair winner publishes new study on butterfly foraging behavior

Science fair winner publishes new study on butterfly foraging behavior

University of Florida lepidopterist Andrei Sourakov has spent his life’s work studying moths and butterflies. But it was his teenage daughter, Alexandra, who led research on how color impacts butterflies’ feeding patterns. The research shows different species exhibit unique foraging behaviors, and the study may be used to build more effective, species-specific synthetic lures for […]

Pacific islands on equator may become refuge for corals in a warming climate due to changes in ocean currents

Pacific islands on equator may become refuge for corals in a warming climate due to changes in ocean currents

Scientists have predicted that ocean temperatures will rise in the equatorial Pacific by the end of the century, wreaking havoc on coral reef ecosystems. But a new study shows that climate change could cause ocean currents to operate in a surprising way and mitigate the warming near a handful of islands right on the equator. […]

O uriasa scurgere de petrol de la o platforma ruseasca ameninta ecosistemul din zona Marii Barents

O uriasa scurgere de petrol de la o platforma ruseasca ameninta ecosistemul din zona Marii Barents O uriasa scurgere de petrol de la o platforma ruseasca ameninta ecosistemul din zona Marii Barents. Ecologistii rusi se tem ca pasarile migratoare care urmeaza sa soseasca in zona si-ar putea gasi adaposturile poluate iremediabil. Scurgerea s-a produs vineri […]

Scientists provide first large-scale estimate of reef shark losses in the Pacific Ocean

Scientists provide first large-scale estimate of reef shark losses in the Pacific Ocean

Many shark populations have plummeted in the past three decades as a result of excessive harvesting — for their fins, as an incidental catch of fisheries targeting other species, and in recreational fisheries. This is particularly true for oceanic species. However, until now, a lack of data prevented scientists from properly quantifying the status of […]

Dezastru ecologic – Lacul Techirghiol

Dezastru ecologic – Lacul Techirghiol

  De ceva vreme, pe malul lacului Techirghiol, in zona de protectie a acestui lac, firme de salubrizare si de constructii au aruncat fara aprobare si fara discernamant, gunoaie menajere, deseuri si moloz dupa cum se poate vedea din fotografiile anexate. Apele rezultate din ploi trec prin aceste gunoaie depozitate ilegal pe terenuri avand initial destinatia de pasune […]

Seabirds, a key factor in the dispersal of parasites

Seabirds, a key factor in the dispersal of parasites

According to a scientific paper published in the journal Biology Letters, in which have taken part Jacob González-Solís, professor at the Department of Animal Biology and at the Biodiversity Research Institute of the University of Barcelona (IRBio), due to their capacity to travel long distances, seabirds play an important role in the dispersal and biodiversity […]

Deadly frog fungus at work in the wild

Deadly frog fungus at work in the wild

The fungal infection that has killed a record number of amphibians worldwide leads to deadly dehydration in frogs in the wild, according to a new study by University of California, Berkeley and San Francisco State University researchers. High levels of an aquatic fungus called Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) disrupt fluid and electrolyte balance in wild frogs, […]
