Fascination in rocky pools and their invertebrate inhabitants

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 11:25:01 GMT

The rocky pools of Maine are the centre of attention in the scientific world for once. How the many interactions work gives insight into the most complex ecosystems on earth, like the coral reefs or the terrestrial examples in rainforest. Crab and whelk, winkle and seaweed all collaborate in the winner eats all scenario of these wonderful pools. An artificial mesocosm provides the experimental basis for the investigation of real rock pools, with these food webs providing evidence of the full facts for the first time.



The Tempo of Evolution is revealed on Hawaii

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 09:59:00 GMT

If we take a group of islands that suffer from regular volcanic creation and then erosion back into the sea, can we gather invaluable information about how life evolves generally to fill available habitats in other biomes---- ? The answer seems to be YES we can.



Army ants tolerate multiple evolutions of beetle mimics

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 09:50:00 GMT

The daring explorer ventures near the dangerous predator at his peril, but this is the army ant, so there are fascinating “guests” and although the danger is real, we can avoid the worst of the bites. The reward is genomes that tell us new stories of parallels and evolutionary successes in these impenetrable, dense forests.



Nations that are cleaning up ---- part 1!

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 09:59:00 GMT

What can China avoid polluting that we can’t. Well it’s possible that even greater carbon footprints will quickly be trodden if events follow mazy paths in many places.



Nissan Electric recruit Margot Robbie

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 10:40:00 GMT

The future of trucks and buses is the mundane work of Nissan Electric and other enterprising manufacturers. The glamour of a fast, light electric car is there to be exploited however, and who better than our Margot!



Auks transform Arctic ecosystems.

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 10:20:00 GMT

The great auk was gobbled up by sailors. Now the importance of such species is highlighted in a study proving how the barren wastes are transformed into a “green” land where Inuits and Vikings found a haven.



Tiger, leopard and dhole share resources in India

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 10:28:00 GMT

Tiger, leopard and dhole! Carnivores, large and small, govern resources across the whole spectrum of natural habitats, whether terrestrial or marine. Here they interact to give real meaning to the word ecology. Camera traps are proving invaluable for relieving our ignorance of all communities of animals and plants, whether threatened like these, or simply our local wood. We love the tiger, Panthera tigris, the leopard, Panthera pardus and the dhole, Cuon alpinus, (http://www.earthtimes.org/conservation/dhole-cuon-alpinus/2076/ ) and you can read that from our frequent stories on them! Here we study them as an unusual grouping, now called a carnivore guild.



Hedgehogs mirror wildlife problems around the world.

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 10:25:00 GMT

Have we got the answer to urban living when we solve the huge losses of hedgehogs in suburban neighbourhoods? The adoption of wild roofs and city ecoscapes in general brings some species to the new city. We have forgotten some animals that might just help clear the pests from our gardens or maintain plants and birdlife in some ways that we have found impossible. Natural habitat has been replaced largely with novel human solutions that need time to prove themselves. Emotionally, many would give the hedgehog their garden-vote, but the population has decreased so much, it could be too late to bring them back.



Lions cause tigers problems

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 09:50:00 GMT

How does the fate of the desperately-threatened tiger subspecies become involved with their relative on another continent? The answer lies in the actions of the South African government, who continue to submit to pressure groups who breed lions and sell them for various less-than-human activities. I hesitate to recommend any action on such obvious manipulations, but a letter to these people can only help. EIA recommend this action in their article on how tigers are affected.



Primates matter, and this is why!

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 10:15:00 GMT

The apes and monkeys represent one of the most interesting and numerous mammalian orders. With the lemurs, lorises and marmosets to set the tone for diversity, the need is to maintain conservation efforts and increase the chances for survival. Too much human expansion on this small planet is leaving little breathing space for other primates, or even ourselves in many cases. Limits have to be set and greed controlled before we are the only apes left.



Intriguing leadership roles in orcas linked to evolution, even in humans

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 09:40:00 GMT

We rarely come across research that leads to true connections with human evolution in other animals, but menopause is an almost unique event that has deep meaning for survival. With these whales, we have a link to one of our own particular characteristics that can only be investigated in these species. Who knows what information we may find among orca ecotypes and even other unique species.



One positive change, but emissions give centuries of rising sea-levels

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 09:55:00 GMT

When the politics of greenhouse gases finally unravel, it won’t be our children who come to conclusions about it. It will be more distant descendants who acclaim our restriction of CFCs, but what can they say about the current mess? We need climate champions, and they are rare in some politics. Let’s hope they can read (the writing on the wall) at least! Here it is, using a new EMIC simulation that provides accuracy, evidence and good conclusions.



Blue whales' calls give ID of new populations

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 10:36:00 GMT

Whether we want to find rare populations of crickets, bats or whales, acoustic signs are worth recording. Instead of sometimes-impossible genetic ID, call signs give often-deeper analysis of how populations differ in so-called cultures. In the case of this blue whale study, new discoveries are inevitable as the long-lived, long-generation and simply just “long” animal recovers from hunting that could easily have occurred within their lifetime!



Pollution or Conservation, Doñana’s Choice!

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 10:20:00 GMT

When the likes of Cota Doñana are threatened, then all of these precious sites for conservation, from the Great Barrier Reef to all the rainforests worldwide need to be checked. Who is destroying these last places for endangered wildlife on earth? Tourism and care for our personal environment needs assessment for future sustainability.



The Casper octopus thrives in the deep sea, but exploiters are threatening

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 10:05:00 GMT

How can we stop the powers-that-be jumping in the deep end? Action is already taken to restrict or warn of deep-sea “mining” of metals. Will this stop governments or corporations rushing in to make a quick profit?
