Smells like deceit: A record number of species use the same odor to exploit each other

Smells like deceit: A record number of species use the same odor to exploit each other

Ecologists discover a fascinating story of hijacked signals, deceit, stowaways, and eavesdropping in the natural world. It involves the citrus tree, an infectious plant disease called huбnglуngbмng, a sap-sucking plant louse, and a predatory wasp — all communicating with each other through a single odor. The incurable and deadly disease huбnglуngbмng, also known as citrus […]

Hudson River: Long term study highlights changes, most a result of human activity

Hudson River: Long term study highlights changes, most a result of human activity

A team of ecologists has documented and summarized far-reaching changes in the Hudson since 1987, most as a result of human activity. Invasive species, pollution reductions, increased flow, and higher temperatures are among the most pronounced causes, but other changes are mysterious. Rivers must be understood over a decadal timescale, the researchers argue. The Hudson […]

В ООН начала работу первая всемирная экологическая ассамблея

Организация Объединенных Наций в понедельник начал недельную всемирную конференцию, направленную на решение широкого круга задач, начиная от браконьерства и заканчивая загрязнением морской среды и повышением интереса к «зеленой экономике». Первая в истории Экологическая Ассамблея Организации Объединенных Наций (UNEA) проходит в Найроби, на фоне строгих мер безопасности в столице Кении, введенных после серии предупреждений об угрозе […]

Politicienii francezi au decis sa-si plateasca cetatenii care renunta la masini in favoarea bicicletelor

Politicienii francezi au decis sa-si plateasca cetatenii care renunta la masini in favoarea bicicletelor pentru a se deplasa la munca. Aproximativ 20 de companii si institutii franceze, care au peste 10.000 de angajati, au fost de acord cu experimentul guvernantilor. Ei isi vor plati angajatii care vin la munca pe bicicleta cu 25 de euro-centi […]

What a 66-million-year old forest fire reveals about the last days of the dinosaurs

What a 66-million-year old forest fire reveals about the last days of the dinosaurs

As far back as the time of the dinosaurs, 66 million years ago, forests recovered from fires in the same manner they do today, according to a researchers. During an expedition in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, the team discovered the first fossil-record evidence of forest fire ecology — the regrowth of plants after a fire — […]

Fishing vessels have big ecological footprint: Powerful seabird magnets

Fishing vessels have big ecological footprint: Powerful seabird magnets

Fishing vessels have a far bigger ecological footprint than previously thought, according to research which tracked the movement and behavior of seabirds using GPS devices. Scientists discovered that northern gannets change their behaviour in response to the presence of large vessels such as trawlers, suggesting each boat can significantly influence the distribution and foraging patterns […]

There may be multiple paths to fuel reduction in the wildland-urban interface

There may be multiple paths to fuel reduction in the wildland-urban interface

Conservative fuel treatments designed to reduce fire severity while still providing forest cover and wildlife habitat worked equally as well as more intensive treatments in allowing for the protection of homes during the 2011 Wallow Fire, a study published in the journal Forest Ecology and Management has found. The distance into the treated area where […]

Poluarea in Bucuresti, de cinci ori peste normele europene

Poluarea in Bucuresti, de cinci ori peste normele europene

Specialistii afirma ca valorile poluarii din Bucuresti sunt si de cinci ori mai mari decat normele europene.

Intersectia Razoare din Bucuresti pare in fiecare dimineata un furnicar. Noxele pe […]

Новая система использует коровий навоз для выработки чистой воды

Новая система использует коровий навоз для выработки чистой воды

В СМИ в разное время являлись сообщения о технологиях выработки электроэнергии из коровьего навоза, но на днях исследователи из Мичиганского государственного университета (MSU) объявили о разработке новой системы, которая превращает коровий навоз в чистую воду. Объединив анаэробный биореактор с системой фильтрации и обратного осмоса, ученые создали систему, которая может превратить коровий навоз в чистую воду, […]
