Young sea stars suffer more from ocean acidification than adults

Young sea stars suffer more from ocean acidification than adults

Young sea stars from the Baltic Sea suffer more from the effects of ocean acidification than adults. In a laboratory experiment, scientists from GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel showed that younger animals already eat less and grow more slowly at only slightly elevated carbon dioxide concentrations. Their results are now published in the […]

Управление НОАА сообщает о национальной проблеме заброшенных рыболовных ловушек

В водах USA каждый год теряются или попросту выбрасываются тысячи рыбацких ловушек и других орудий лова, которые продолжают ловить рыбу, крабов, черепах и других видов морских животных. Эти ловушки приводят к увеличению вреда для среды обитания и потерь для рыболовства, которых можно избежать, говорится в недавно опубликованном исследовании американского Национального управления по изучению океанов и […]

Climate change and European forests

Climate change and European forests

A recent study in the Journal of Environmental Management carried out by researchers at the European Forest Institute and their partners in the FP7 funded MOTIVE project (Models for Adaptive Forest Management) discusses how forest managers and decision makers can cope with climate uncertainties. The authors review general trends in climate, with particular emphasis on […]

U.S. cityscapes show consistent patterns of ‘urban evolution’

U.S. cityscapes show consistent patterns of ‘urban evolution’

Most people think of city landscapes as simpler, diminished versions of the wild forests and free-flowing streams found in remote places. But in a series of studies published Sept. 10, 2014 in a special issue of the journal Biogeochemistry, scientists specializing in urban ecosystems say just the opposite is true. Urban landscapes are more complex […]

Climate change to increase forest fire danger in Europe

Climate change to increase forest fire danger in Europe

Climate change is expected to bring increased temperatures and longer droughts — conditions that will make forests more susceptible to fires. By 2090, the area burned by forest fires in the European Union could increase by 200% because of climate change, according to a new study published in the journal Regional Environmental Change. However, preventive […]

Drumul Taberei, transformat intr-unul din cele mai poluate cartiere din Bucuresti

Drumul Taberei, transformat intr-unul din cele mai poluate cartiere din Bucuresti

Cand vine vorba de poluare, Bucurestiul nu sta tocmai bine. O arata chiar raportul pe 2013 din cadrul Programului Integrat de Gestionare a Calitatii Aerului, realizat de mai multe institutii din Capitala. Alexandra Nita sta chiar langa santierul din Drumul Taberei. Din cauza prafului tine mereu geamul inchis (fotografii: Delia Chilianu) Dupa ce mai multi […]

Ученые из MIT разработали инновационный материал, который собирает в 5 раз больше воды из воздуха

Ученые из MIT разработали инновационный материал, который собирает в 5 раз больше воды из воздуха

Некоторые растения и животные, например, намибийский жук, могут выжить в очень засушливых районах, благодаря выработанному за годы эволюции способу поглощения даже самого незначительного количества воды из атмосферы. Используя этот механизм, ученые разработали технологию сбора тумана, которая заключается в конденсации влаги на гигантских сетках и последующем перенаправлении собранных крошечных капелек воды в контейнер. А недавно исследователи […]

Older coral species more hardy, biologists say

Older coral species more hardy, biologists say

A new study published in PLOS ONE says older species of Caribbean coral appear to be faring better against climate change and pollution. Credit: Jorge H. Pinzуn C./UT Arlington     New research indicates older species of coral have more of what it takes to survive a warming and increasingly polluted climate, according to biologists […]

Primarul Robu avertizeaza firma Azur ca ar putea fi inchisa daca mai polueaza Timisoara

Primarul Robu avertizeaza firma Azur ca ar putea fi inchisa daca mai polueaza Timisoara

Obiceiul primarului Nicolae Robu de a inspecta santierele la ore tarzii tulbura uneori si somnul subalternilor. De pilda, seful directiei de mediu a municipalitatii, Adrian Bere, a fost pus la treaba in miez de noapte dupa ce primarul a sesizat un miros neplacut in timp ce vizita joi seara Zona Soarelui, in jurul orei 23, […]

Climate change will threaten fish by drying out southwest U.S. streams, study predicts

Climate change will threaten fish by drying out southwest U.S. streams, study predicts

Fish species native to a major Arizona watershed may lose access to important segments of their habitat by 2050 as surface water flow is reduced by the effects of climate warming, new research suggests. Most of these fish species, found in the Verde River Basin, are already threatened or endangered. Their survival relies on easy […]
