Как заготовить компот из слив?

Как заготовить компот из слив?

Сливовый вкус очень тонкий, едва ощутимый, поэтому для его усиления в компот можно добавить еще несколько ягод вишни, персик, яблоки или душистые пряности (ваниль, корицу). Но речь в рецепте компота из слив пойдет не совсем об этом: «изюминка» напитка – в начинке. Да, сливовый компот на зиму мы будем варить с начинкой из орехов. Этот компотик […]

Viruses could be the key to healthy corals

Viruses could be the key to healthy corals

Corals are an invaluable part of the marine ecosystem, fostering biodiversity and protecting coastlines. But they’re also increasingly endangered. Pathogenic bacteria, along with pollution and harmful fishing practices, are one of the biggest threats to the world’s coral populations today. One of the solutions to the crisis may lie in human medicine. Prof. Eugene Rosenberg […]

New DNA method tracks fish and whales in seawater

New DNA method tracks fish and whales in seawater

Danish researchers at University of Copenhagen lead the way for future monitoring of marine biodiversity and resources by using DNA traces in seawater samples to keep track of fish and whales in the oceans. A half litre of seawater can contain evidence of local fish and whale faunas and combat traditional fishing methods. Their results […]

Conservation scientists call policy-makers to be scale-aware

Conservation scientists call policy-makers to be scale-aware

Conservation is concerned with the preservation of biological diversity at all levels, from genes to species, communities and ecosystems. Yet conserving this biological richness is made difficult because it varies in complex ways at different scales of space and time. The problem of scale emerges as a critical new theme in conservation practice, as pointed […]

Biodiversity conservation depends on scale: Lessons from the science–policy dialogue

Biodiversity conservation depends on scale: Lessons from the science–policy dialogue

The year 2010 marked the deadline for the political targets to significantly reduce and halt biodiversity loss. The failure to achieve the 2010 goal stimulated the setting up of new targets for 2020. In addition, preventing the degradation of ecosystems and their services has been incorporated in several global and the EU agendas for 2020. […]

New approach needed to restore New England river herring

New approach needed to restore New England river herring

Despite evidence from their recent study that populations of two river herring species are dangerously low, ecologists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Stony Brook University say removing dams and adding fishways can still revive alewife and blueback herring numbers in New England and help to restore a long-neglected natural link between marine and […]

Coral scientists use new model to find where corals are most likely to survive climate change

Coral scientists use new model to find where corals are most likely to survive climate change

Marine conservationists from the Wildlife Conservation Society working with other coral reef experts have identified heat-tolerant coral species living in locations with continuous background temperature variability as those having the best chance of surviving climate change, according to a new simplified method for measuring coral reef resilience. Therefore, coral reefs with these characteristics should receive […]

Climate change could increase levels of avian influenza in wild birds

Climate change could increase levels of avian influenza in wild birds

Rising sea levels, melting glaciers, more intense rainstorms and more frequent heat waves are among the planetary woes that may come to mind when climate change is mentioned. Now, two University of Michigan researchers say an increased risk of avian influenza transmission in wild birds can be added to the list. Population ecologists Pejman Rohani […]

‘New England Banksia’ a distinct species, botany student shows

‘New England Banksia’ a distinct species, botany student shows

The New England Banksia is largely restricted to the eastern edge of the New England Tableland, and is common in places along Waterfall Way. Ms Stimpson’s research has raised this flowering plant, until now classified as a variety of the Hairpin Banksia (B. spinulosa), to the taxonomic level of a distinct species. The study was […]
