Pronghorn warming to safe passages: Scientists observe as pronghorn use overpass without hesitation

Pronghorn warming to safe passages: Scientists observe as pronghorn use overpass without hesitation

Scientists with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) observing the fall migration of pronghorn from Grand Teton National Park to the Upper Green River Basin announced that for the second year, the animals have successfully used the newly constructed overpasses that provide safe passage over U.S. Highway 191 in Trapper’s Point, Wyoming. More telling, the scientists […]

First look at diverse life below rare tallgrass prairies

First look at diverse life below rare tallgrass prairies

America’s once-abundant tallgrass prairies — which have all but disappeared — were home to dozens of species of grasses that could grow to the height of a man, hundreds of species of flowers, and herds of roaming bison.

New concept needed for a better understanding of biodiversity in time, space

New concept needed for a better understanding of biodiversity in time, space

  By now, biodiversity is a well known term even in the broader public, as it is used in many media reports about species extinction, natural resources or climate change. Yet research in this field is still lacking an integrative approach. Paleontologists and biologists, for example, still cut their own path, their studies in species […]

Butterflies show origin of species as an evolutionary process, not a single event

Butterflies show origin of species as an evolutionary process, not a single event

The evolution of new species might not be as hard as it seems, even when diverging populations remain in contact and continue to produce offspring. That’s the conclusion of studies, reported in the Cell Press journal Cell Reports on October 31st, that examine the full genome sequences of 32 Heliconius butterflies from the Central American […]

Climate change has silver lining for grizzy bears

Global warming and forest disturbances may have a silver lining for threatened species of grizzly bears in Alberta, Canada. In a 10-year study that monitored 112 bears in Alberta’s Rocky Mountain region, University of Alberta biologist Scott Nielsen and his colleagues found that warmer temperatures and easier access to food associated with forest disturbances helped […]

Гигантские зеркала будут отражать искусственный солнечный свет на норвежскую деревню

Шесть месяцев из двенадцати население деревни Рьюкан, расположенной в отдаленной долине на юге Норвегии, живут практически в темноте. Но теперь, благодаря трем отражающим зеркалам, площадью 17 квадратных метров каждое, установленных на вершине близлежащей горы высотой почти 400 метров, 3500 жителей деревни, в конце концов-то, смогут насладиться зимним солнцем – в первый раз за 100 лет, […]

Gold mining ravages Peru

Gold mining ravages Peru

For the first time, researchers have been able to map the true extent of gold mining in the biologically diverse region of Madre De Dios in the Peruvian Amazon. The team combined field surveys with airborne mapping and high-resolution satellite monitoring to show that the geographic extent of mining has increased 400% from 1999 to […]

China reintroduce obligativitatea circularii alternative a masinilor cu numere de inmatriculare pare / impare
