Amazon rainforest survey could improve carbon offset schemes

Amazon rainforest survey could improve carbon offset schemes

Carbon offsetting initiatives could be improved with new insights into the make-up of tropical forests, a study suggests. Scientists studying the Amazon Basin have revealed unprecedented detail of the size, age and species of trees across the region by comparing satellite maps with hundreds of field plots. The findings will enable researchers to assess more […]

Genetic mix could benefit colonising plants, animals

Genetic mix could benefit colonising plants, animals

Recently evaluated evidence suggests that organisms bred from different genetic lines have evolutionary advantages over more closely related members of the same species when colonizing new environments. Scientists reviewed all of the available literature on genetic admixture. Admixture occurs when previously separate populations of the same species come into contact with one another and breed. […]

Japonia se “reimprieteneste” cu energia nucleara, la trei ani dupa Fukushima

Japonia se “reimprieteneste” cu energia nucleara, la trei ani dupa Fukushima

  La trei ani dupa distrugerea centralei Fukushima-Daiichi (in urma unui devastator cutremur urmat de tsunami), Administratia conservatoare a lui Shinzo Abe a decis sa suspende proiectul ce viza inchiderea definitiva a centralelor nucleare din Japonia (proiect ce a fost lansat de puterea centrista anterioara), pentru a inlocui nuclearul din centrul politicii energetice a Arhipelagului […]

Beneficial organisms react differently to parasite drug

Beneficial organisms react differently to parasite drug

The substance ivermectin has been used for more than thirty years all over the world to combat parasites like roundworms, lice and mites in humans, livestock and pets. The active ingredient belongs to the chemical group of avermectins, which generally disrupt cell transport and thus attack pests. When ivermectin is excreted in the feces of […]

Improving understanding of valley-wide stream chemistry

Improving understanding of valley-wide stream chemistry

Understanding the chemistry of streams at a finer scale could help to identify factors impairing water quality and help protect aquatic ecosystems. A geostatistical approach for studying environmental conditions in stream networks and landscapes has been successfully applied at a valley-wide scale to assess headwater stream chemistry at high resolution, revealing unexpected patterns in natural […]

Rusia nu renunta la armele nucleare din cauza scutului antiracheta american

Rusia nu renunta la armele nucleare din cauza scutului antiracheta american

Rusia nu este pregatita deocamdata sa renunte la armele nucleare, din cauza scutului antiracheta american. Pentru Moscova, arsenalul nuclear este, in acest moment, o modalitate legitima de descurajare si protectie a intereselor nationale, a explicat directorul departamentului MAE rus pentru securitate si dezarmare, Mikail Ulianov. Ulianov conduce delegatia Rusiei la a treia sesiune a Comitetului […]

Shade grown coffee shrinking as a proportion of global coffee production

Shade grown coffee shrinking as a proportion of global coffee production

Over the past couple of decades, global coffee production has been shifting towards a more intensive, less environmentally friendly style, a new study has found. That’s pretty surprising if you live in the U.S. and you’ve gone to the grocery store or Starbucks, where sales of environmentally and socially conscious coffees have risen sharply and […]

Тайвань создает новый морской заповедник для исчезающего горбатого дельфина

Тайвань создает новый морской заповедник для исчезающего горбатого дельфина

На днях власти Тайваня объявил об открытии первого собственного морского заповедника, который призван защитить популяцию индо-тихоокеанских горбатых дельфинов, которые в реальное время находятся под угрозой исчезновения. Согласно оценкам местных природоохранных групп, только в течение последнего десятилетия количество горбатых дельфинов упала вдвое, и причинами этому являются загрязнение окружающей среды, рост и развитие промышленности, а еще разрушение […]

Moth study suggests hidden climate change impacts

Moth study suggests hidden climate change impacts

A 32-year study of subarctic forest moths in Finnish Lapland suggests that scientists may be underestimating the impacts of climate change on animals and plants because much of the harm is hidden from view. Researchers used advanced statistical techniques to examine the roles of different ecological forces affecting the moth populations and found that warmer […]

Transporturile si mediul, prioritare in urmatorii sapte ani

Transporturile si mediul, prioritare in urmatorii sapte ani

Romania va folosi, in urmatorii sapte ani, fonduri europene de peste 20 de miliarde de euro pentru transporturi si mediu, domenii care “au generat probleme”, a anuntat Victor Ponta Guvernul a incheiat elaborarea textului “Acordului de Parteneriat” care detaliaza modul in care Romania intentioneaza sa directioneze in urmatorii sapte ani fondurile europene, de peste 20 […]
