Mosquito control pesticide use in coastal areas poses low risk to juvenile oysters, hard clams

Four of the most common mosquito pesticides used along the east and Gulf coasts show little risk to juvenile hard clams and oysters, according to a study. However, the study also determined that lower oxygen levels in the water, known as hypoxia, and increased acidification actually increased how toxic some of the pesticides were. Such […]

Colonial-era dams trigger parallel evolution of Connecticut fish

Colonial-era dams trigger parallel evolution of Connecticut fish

Decisions made by Colonial era settlers to dam Connecticut waterways triggered sudden and parallel evolutionary changes in two species of fish competing for food, a new Yale University study shows. Earlier studies documented the decrease in size and changes in gill structure of members of the alewife species cut off from access to the sea […]

Genetics reveal that reef corals, their algae live together but evolve independently

Genetics reveal that reef corals, their algae live together but evolve independently

Caribbean corals and the algae that inhabit them form a remarkably stable relationship — new knowledge that can serve as an important tool in preserving and restoring vital reef-building corals. The research could be used to decide which heat-tolerant corals to bring into nurseries, to grow, and to replant back on the reef to restore […]

Ai auzit de Seiful Apocalipsei? Ce au conservat cercetatorii aici pentru a salva omenirea

Ai auzit de Seiful Apocalipsei? Ce au conservat cercetatorii aici pentru a salva omenirea

Cercetatorii au infiintat seiful apocalipsei, o banca de seminte situata pe insula Spitsbergen, arhipelagul Svalbard, in scopul de a conserva in conditii de siguranta biodiversitatea agricola si sa salveze speciile de plante aflate pe cale de disparitie. Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Banca Mondiala de Seminte Svalbard, poate trece drept un decor dintr-un film futurist al […]

Ученые из Стэнфорда создали биоразлагаемый пластик из отходов метана

Ученые из Стэнфорда создали биоразлагаемый пластик из отходов метана

Было бы просто замечательно, если бы мы смогли уменьшить или вообще освободиться от Большого Тихоокеанского Мусорного Пятна, не накапливать пластиковые отходы на свалках и сократить выбросы парниковых газов, заменив хотя бы 30 процентов используемого обычного пластика на биоразлагаемый. В течение многих десятилетий исследователи всего мира пытались добиться этих целей. Одним из перспективных способов производства биопластика […]

Delving into the spread of marine life: Understanding deep-sea limpets

Delving into the spread of marine life: Understanding deep-sea limpets

Deep-sea limpets are conches with shells about 1 cm long. They have been confirmed to live in the long, narrow seabed known as the Okinawa Trough, located at an average of depth of 1000 meters and northwest of the Nansei and Ryukyu Islands. In a new article, three major findings are reported: new limpet habitats […]

Bombele nucleare pierdute de americani pe plajele Spaniei. Zona este si acum contaminata

Bombele nucleare pierdute de americani pe plajele Spaniei. Zona este si acum contaminata

Pe 17 ianuarie 1966, doua avioane americane s-au ciocnit deasupra Spaniei. Unul dintre aparate, un bombardier strategic B-52, transporta patru bombe cu hidrogen, trei dintre ele fiind pierdute deasupra Palomares, Andaluzia. La inceputul anului 1966, executivul de la Washington a ordonat initierea operatiunii Chrome Dome, ce consta in trimiterea unor bombardiere inarmate cu bombe cu […]

New technologies making it easier to protect threatened species

New technologies making it easier to protect threatened species

Human actions have pushed extinction rates to 1,000 times faster than the natural rate, but a new Duke University-led study finds that emerging technologies could give scientists and policymakers a more efficient way to identify the species at greatest risk and take steps to protect them before it’s too late. «Online databases, smartphone apps, crowd-sourcing […]
