Американская компания разработала установку для удаления запаха сточных вод

Американская фирма EcoVerde, основанная изобретателем, мексиканцем по происхождению, Умберто Урибе Луис Лобо, огласила о разработке новой системы фильтрации, которая удаляет аромат и другие загрязнения из сточных вод посредством биологического процесса, основанного на бактериях, питающихся сероводородом. По словам Умберто Лобо, новая технология является больше экологически чистой, чем уже имеющиеся сегодня на рынке, так как в ней […]

Less than $200 million would conserve precious Atlantic Forest in Brazil, say researchers

Less than $200 million would conserve precious Atlantic Forest in Brazil, say researchers

Micoureus paraguayanus. Credit: Thomas Pьttker     Brazil could conserve its valuable Atlantic Forest by investing just 0.01 per cent of its annual GDP, according to a new study. The Atlantic Forest (Mata Atlвntica) is one of the most important and threatened biodiversity hotspots in the world, containing the only living examples of nearly 10,000 […]

Plant life forms in the fossil record: When did the first canopy flowers appear?

Plant life forms in the fossil record: When did the first canopy flowers appear?

Most plant fossils are isolated organs, making it difficult to reconstruct the type of plant life or its ecosystem structure. In their study for Geology, published online on 28 Aug. 2014, researchers Camilla Crifт and colleagues used leaf vein density, a trait visible on leaf compression fossils, to document the occurrence of stratified forests with […]

В Таиланде назревает кризис отходов

В Таиланде назревает кризис отходов

Начавшись 8 дней назад, пожар на свалке, одной из самых крупных в стране, насчитывающей 6 миллионов тонн гниющего мусора и токсичных отходов, в очередной раз вызвал опасения у обитателей, что неграмотное планирование полигонов и недостаточные деяния правоохранительных органов неотвратимо толкают Таиланд к кризису отходов. Местные обитатели уже давно настаивают на закрытии зловонного полигона Praeksa, который […]

Climate change, predators, and trickle down effects on ecosystems

Climate change, predators, and trickle down effects on ecosystems

Predators play important roles in maintaining diverse and stable ecosystems. Climate change can push species to move in order to stay in their climatic comfort zones, potentially altering where species live and how they interact, which could fundamentally transform current ecosystems. A symposium focusing on climate’s effects on predators — causing cascading effects on whole […]

Double threat of climate and land use change enhances risks to biodiversity

Double threat of climate and land use change enhances risks to biodiversity

Combined effects of climate and land use change may intensify the exposure of species and ecosystems to global change. There is an urgent need to develop relevant metrics of global change that integrate multiple types of threats facing ecosystems, to improve risk assessment, measure the exposure of species to emerging threats, and improve adaptation planning. […]

Orasul in care dispar masinile! Solutiile pentru transport fara aglomeratie si poluare!

Orasul in care dispar masinile! Solutiile pentru transport fara aglomeratie si poluare!

  Masinile sunt pe cale de disparitie! Cel putin, in marile orase, care incearca sa scape definitiv de ele! Helsinki e orasul care a facut cel mai mare progres pana acum, scrie Guardian. Finlandezii vor sa interzica masinile in oras in urmatorii 10 ani si au demarat deja un proiect de inlocuire a acestora. Masinile […]
