Risk of Amazon rainforest dieback is higher than IPCC projects, study suggests

Risk of Amazon rainforest dieback is higher than IPCC projects, study suggests

A new study suggests the southern portion of the Amazon rainforest is at a much higher risk of dieback due to stronger seasonal drying than projections made by the climate models used in the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). If severe enough, the loss of rainforest could cause the release […]

Польские ученые разработали фотокатализатор, очищающий воду на солнце – дешево и быстро

Польские ученые разработали фотокатализатор, очищающий воду на солнце – дешево и быстро

Небольшое количество специального порошка высыпают в воду, загрязненную фенолом и целлюлозой, и выставляют на солнце. Через пятнадцать минут вредные соединения исчезают, а порошок отфильтровывают для повторного применения. Фантастика, скажете вы? Отнюдь, это просто профессиональное использование знаний по химии и физике группы исследователей под руководством д-ра Хуана Карлоса Кольменареса из Института физиологической химии Польской академии наук […]

Tagging aquatic animals can disrupt natural behavior

Tagging aquatic animals can disrupt natural behavior

American and Canadian researchers have for the first time quantified the energy cost to aquatic animals when they carry satellite tags, video cameras and other research instruments. Studying fibreglass casts of sea turtles in a wind tunnel, the team found that while most commercially available tags increased drag by less than five per cent for […]

New research illustrates Mississippi River’s role in the transport and fate of the oil following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon incident

New research illustrates Mississippi River’s role in the transport and fate of the oil following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon incident

A new study led by scientists at the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science showed that the complex circulation from the Mississippi River plume played a substantial role in the transport and fate of the oil following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon incident. These findings provide new information on the transport […]

Evolution of new species requires few genetic changes

Evolution of new species requires few genetic changes

Only a few genetic changes are needed to spur the evolution of new species — even if the original populations are still in contact and exchanging genes. Once started, however, evolutionary divergence evolves rapidly, ultimately leading to fully genetically isolated species, report scientists from the University of Chicago in the Oct 31 Cell Reports. «Speciation […]

Death by moonlight? Not always

Death by moonlight? Not always

Is moonlight dangerous? It depends on what you are, according to a study published online recently in the Journal of Animal Ecology. «Ecologists have long viewed the darkness of a moonless night as a protective blanket for nocturnal prey species,» said Laura Prugh, a wildlife biologist at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. In the dark, […]

Panourile care arata noxele din aerul Capitalei nu mai functioneaza

Panourile care arata noxele din aerul Capitalei nu mai functioneaza

In Bucuresti, s-a pus praful peste panourile montate tocmai ca sa ne spuna cat de toxic este aerul in Capitala. Autoritatile de mediu au investit 2 milioane si jumatate de euro din fonuri europene intr-o retea automata de monitorizare a aerului, dar nu s-au mai preocupat si de intretinerea ei. Datele oficiale arata ca, anual, […]
