Из-за наводнения в реке Миссисипи эвакуированы сотни жителей Санкт-Чарльз-Каунти

После прорыва дамбы на реке Миссисипи в понедельник вечером, власти города Санкт-Чарльз Каунти около Сент-Луиса, штат Миссури, приняли решение эвакуировать обитателей из своих домов. По данным геологической службы США, на сегодняшний день уровень воды в реке Миссисипи на 10 футов (возле 3 метров) превышает уровень паводковых вод. В связи с этом служба объявила предупреждение о […]

Microbial changes regulate function of entire ecosystems

Microbial changes regulate function of entire ecosystems

A major question in ecology has centered on the role of microbes in regulating ecosystem function. Now, in research published ahead of print in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Brajesh Singh of the University of Western Sydney, Australia, and collaborators show how changes in the populations of methanotrophic bacteria can have consequences for methane […]

Recovery of Hawaiian green sea turtles still short of historic levels

Recovery of Hawaiian green sea turtles still short of historic levels

Calls to lift protections for the iconic Hawaiian green sea turtle may be premature, according to a new study led by a Stanford researcher. Although the number of Hawaiian green sea turtles has increased since 1978 when the species was listed under the U.S. Endangered Species Act, the population may still be only a fraction […]

Human activity echoes through Brazilian rainforest

Human activity echoes through Brazilian rainforest

The disappearance of large, fruit-eating birds from tropical forests in Brazil has caused the region’s forest palms to produce smaller, less successful seeds over the past century, researchers say. The findings provide evidence that human activity can trigger fast-paced evolutionary changes in natural populations. Mauro Galetti from the Universidade Estadual Paulista in São Paulo, Brazil, […]

Rainforests take the heat, paleontologists show

Rainforests take the heat, paleontologists show

South American rainforests thrived during three extreme global warming events in the past, say paleontologists at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in a new report published in the Annual Review of Earth and Planetary Science. No tropical forests in South America currently experience average yearly temperatures of more than 84 degrees Fahrenheit (29 degrees Celsius). […]

Microplastic pollution prevalent in lakes, too

Microplastic pollution prevalent in lakes, too

EPFL researchers have detected microplastic pollution in one of Western Europe’s largest lakes, Lake Geneva, in large enough quantities to raise concern. While studies in the ocean have shown that these small bits of plastic can be harmful to fish and birds that feed on plankton or other small waterborne organisms, the full extent of […]

More at-risk bird species in Brazilian forest than previously thought

More at-risk bird species in Brazilian forest than previously thought

In a study published today in the journal PLOS ONE, a team of researchers led by NJIT Associate Professor Gareth Russell has applied a novel method for linking large-scale habitat fragmentation to population sustainability. «Our goal was to assess the extinction risk for bird species in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil, a global ‘hotspot’ of […]

Alfabetizarea ecologica a populatiei

Alfabetizarea ecologica a populatiei

Prin noul proiect „Cartea recordurilor verzi” s-a obtinut implicarea cu entuziasm a tuturor elevilor, prescolarilor si cadrelor didactice din Gradinita Nr. 2 Dumbraveni si Scoala Nr. 2 Dumbraveni. Scopul urmarit a fost abordarea unei atitudini ecologice in comunitatea scolara prin refolosirea deseurilor intr-un mod creativ si crearea unui mediu scolar prietenos. Au fost implicate doua […]

Ancient plants reawaken: Plants exposed by retreating glaciers regrowing after centuries entombed under ice

Ancient plants reawaken: Plants exposed by retreating glaciers regrowing after centuries entombed under ice

When University of Alberta researcher Catherine La Farge threads her way through the recently exposed terrain left behind by retreating glaciers, she looks at the ancient plant remains a lot closer than most. Now, her careful scrutiny has revealed a startling reawakening of long-dormant plants known as bryophytes. La Farge, a researcher in the Faculty […]
