Экологи обнаружили в водах западного побережья США радиоактивные вещества

Ученые из ВУЗа океанографии в Вудс-Холе (WHOI), ведущие мониторинг природных и антропогенных источников радиоактивности в водах вдоль тихоокеанского побережья Соединенных Штатов, не так давно сообщили об обнаружении следов высокорадиоактивных соединений в 100 километрах западнее города Юрика, штат Калифорния. Ученые предполагают, что эти вещества являются частью радиоактивного шлейфа, выпущенного во время и в последствии страшной аварии […]

Lemurs: Gardeners of Madagascar rainforest at risk

Onja Razafindratsima, a graduate student at Rice University, observes a lemur in a Madagascar rainforest. Razafindratsima led a three-year study to explore the relationship between lemurs and trees. Lemurs eat the fruit and spread its seeds far from the parent tree to help ensure its survival. Credit: Photo courtesy of Onja Razafindratsima/Rice University   A […]

How ferns adapted to one of Earth’s newest and most extreme environments

How ferns adapted to one of Earth’s newest and most extreme environments

Ferns are believed to be ‘old’ plant species — some of them lived alongside the dinosaurs, over 200 million years ago. However, a group of Andean ferns evolved much more recently: their completely new form and structure (morphology) arose and diversified within the last 2 million years. This novel morphology seems to have been advantageous […]

Ученые предложили новый способ укрепления почвы – с помощью переработанных ковровых покрытий

Ученые предложили новый способ укрепления почвы – с помощью переработанных ковровых покрытий

Недавно ученые из Центра исследований строительной инфраструктуры от технологического университета Сиднея (UTS), Австралия, разработали новую, больше экологичную практику для укрепления неустойчивой почвы. Используя для этого переработанные ковровые покрытия, строители сумеют существенно уменьшить выбросы углекислого газа в атмосферу. Быстрый рост населения и урбанизация предъявляют к созданию и расширению инфраструктуры повышенные требования, и в первую очередь, обеспечение […]
