Ce s-ar intampla cu Pamantul in cazul unui razboi nuclear?

20 de ani de ierni aspre, recolte slabe, foamete, subtierea drastica a stratului de ozon si inmultirea dramatica a cazurilor de cancer – acestea ar fi consecintele unui razboi nuclear, chiar si a unuia localizat si de amploare relativ mica, arata un studiu recent, care a folosit simularile computerizate pentru a estima efectele unui astfel […]

Hunting gives deer-damaged forests in state parks a shot at recovery

Hunting gives deer-damaged forests in state parks a shot at recovery

Regulated deer hunts in Indiana state parks have helped restore the health of forests suffering from decades of damage caused by overabundant populations of white-tailed deer, a Purdue study shows. A research team led by Michael Jenkins, associate professor of forest ecology, found that a 17-year-long Indiana Department of Natural Resources policy of organizing hunts […]

Zebra, quagga mussels trump pollution as change agents in Lake Erie

Zebra, quagga mussels trump pollution as change agents in Lake Erie

Researchers find that invasive species, such as zebra mussels, have affected the composition of Lake Erie’s zoobenthic community more than pollution has. In 1986, the zebra mussel was detected in Lake Erie, followed in 1989 by Dreissena rostriformis, the quagga mussel. «The zebra and quagga mussels are ecosystem engineers,» said researchers, explaining that both are […]

Нет ни одной области в Мировом океане, свободной от мусора: новое исследование

Мусор теперь находится даже в самых отдаленных районах Мирового океана, считают ученые из Португалии, которые стараются установить, сколько же отходов человеческой деятельности лежит на дне морей Европы. Исследователи изучили данные 588-ти видеоклипов, записанных различными беспилотными подводными аппаратами для геологического картирования и прочих морских изучений, и обнаружили, что пластиковые отходы, такие как полиэтиленовые пакеты, являются самым […]

Mesophotic coral reef geology the focus of new study

Mesophotic coral reef geology the focus of new study

A new study on biological erosion of mesophotic tropical coral reefs, which are low energy reef environments between 30-150 meters deep, provides new insights into processes that affect the overall structure of these important ecosystems. The purpose of the study was to better understand how bioerosion rates and distribution of bioeroding organisms, such as fish, […]
