Native plant restoration not enough to maintain tropical dry forests in Hawaii

Native plant restoration not enough to maintain tropical dry forests in Hawaii

Protecting Hawaiian dry forests from invasive species and the risk of wildfire is an on-going challenge for land managers and scientists conducting research on the Island of Hawaii. It is commonly thought that removing the invasive species and planting native species will restore the land to its original state. However, in a recent paper published […]

Britain’s urban rivers bounce back

Britain’s urban rivers bounce back

Urban rivers throughout England and Wales have improved dramatically in water quality and wildlife over the last 20 years. That’s the conclusion of one the largest studies of national trends in river health ever undertaken. After decades of pollution, typically from poorly treated sewage and industrial waste, rivers in or near Britain’s major urban areas […]

Native species fight back: First evidence of coevolution between invasive, native species

Native species fight back: First evidence of coevolution between invasive, native species

Invasive species such as kudzu, privet and garlic mustard can devastate ecosystems, and, until now, scientists had little reason to believe that native plants could mount a successful defense. A new University of Georgia study shows that some native clearweed plants have evolved resistance to invasive garlic mustard plants — and that the invasive plants […]

Saving the Baltic Sea: Geo-engineering efforts to mix oxygen into the Deep Baltic should be abandoned, expert says

Saving the Baltic Sea: Geo-engineering efforts to mix oxygen into the Deep Baltic should be abandoned, expert says

Geo-engineering efforts to mix oxygen into the Deep Baltic should be abandoned. Over the last decade, an average of 60,000 km2 of the Baltic Sea bottom has suffered from hypoxia without enough oxygen to support its normal ecosystem. Several large-scale geo-engineering interventions are currently on the table as proposed solutions to this problem. Researchers from […]

Dying trees in Southwest set stage for erosion, water loss in Colorado River

Dying trees in Southwest set stage for erosion, water loss in Colorado River

New research concludes that a one-two punch of drought and mountain pine beetle attacks are the primary forces that have killed more than 2.5 million acres of pinyon pine and juniper trees in the American Southwest during the past 15 years, setting the stage for further ecological disruption. The widespread dieback of these tree species […]

Azerbaijan: „Cea mai mare poluare din lume, cadou de la fratii Nobel“

Azerbaijan: „Cea mai mare poluare din lume, cadou de la fratii Nobel“ Istoria Azerbaijanului e strans legata de istoria prelucrarii petrolului. Atat in trecut, cat si acum, economia e sustinuta aproape exclusiv din aceasta industrie. Exporturile celei mai bogate tari din Caucaz se bazeaza in proportie de 98% pe petrol, iar economia tarii a cunoscut […]

Eating garbage: Bacteria for bioremediation

Eating garbage: Bacteria for bioremediation

A 150-foot-high garbage dump in Colombia, South America, may have new life as a public park. Researchers at the University of Illinois have demonstrated that bacteria found in the dump can be used to neutralize the contaminants in the soil. Jerry Sims, a U of I associate professor of crop sciences and USDA-Agricultural Research Service […]

Cambodia remains last vulture bastion in Southeast Asia

Cambodia remains last vulture bastion in Southeast Asia

In face of what has become a precipitous slide toward extinction across the Asian continent, the vultures of Cambodia have persisted, giving conservationists hope that these important scavengers can come back from the brink, according to authors from the Wildlife Conservation Society, the Royal Government of Cambodia, and other groups in a new study. The […]
