Seeing the forest for the trees: Youngest trees in a forest tell the biggest story

Seeing the forest for the trees: Youngest trees in a forest tell the biggest story

LSU ecologist Kyle Harms co-authors first study to quantify the process of diversification in forests and likely all other sessile ecosystems. Credit: Louisiana State University The largest trees in a forest may command the most attention, but the smallest seedlings and youngest saplings are the ones that are most critical to the composition and diversity […]

Экология и современные технологии фасадного остекления

Экология и современные технологии фасадного остекления

Современное остекление создает уют на долгие годы. При помощи остекленных террас и веранд мы делаем жилье ближе к природе, а изготавливая продукцию из прочных, долговечных и пригодных для вторичной переработки материалов, таких как стекло и алюминий, мы проявляем заботу об окружающей среде. Уважение экологических ценностей составляет важную часть корпоративной философии и отражается в деятельности всех […]

‘Family’ matters when predicting ecosystems’ reaction to global change

This is a picture of the experimental setup in the greenhouse. Credit: Jennifer Schweitzer, co-author and associate professor at UT Humans are rapidly changing the look and function of earth’s ecosystems, from the increase of greenhouse gases to the unintentional and harmful spread of plants and animals to new environments. A major challenge for ecologists […]

Cum arata cel mai mare santier naval din Rusia, unde sunt construite submarinele nucleare

Submarinul rusesc Typhoon este cel mai mare submarin din lume, cu o lungime de peste 170 de metri si o latime de 23 de metri. „Rechinul”, cum este numit in Rusia, poate transporta 20 de rachete nucleare balistice. Pana in prezent, au fost construite sase astfel de submarine. Doar trei submarine au ramas intacte, insa […]

Квадрокоптер и беспилотный вертолет будут использоваться в паре для борьбы с пожарами

Квадрокоптер и беспилотный вертолет будут использоваться в паре для борьбы с пожарами

Беспилотный многофункциональный вертолет Kaman K-MAX (K-1200), детище американской фирмы Kaman Aircraft и крупнейшего аэрокосмического концерна ВПК Lockheed Martin, даровитый перевозить грузы массой до 2,7 тонн без участия людей в автоматизированном режиме, уже проявил себя с наилучшей стороны во время военных действий в Афганистане. Специальное оборудование, установленное на беспилотнике, позволяет сбрасывать груз в определенное место с […]

Darwin 2.0: New theory on speciation, diversity

Macaws flying over the rainforest canopy at dawn. The study found that bird lineages that inhabit the forest canopy, such as these macaws, accumulate fewer species over evolutionary time than do bird lineages that inhabit the forest understory.
