Myanmar shines with intact forest, but will this biodiversity be conserved?

Fri, 19 May 2017 09:15:00 GMT

How can we conserve the beauty of the largest remaining rainforest in Asia? This tract of land, divided by the dry interior, stretches across the Thai border at one end and connects with Indian reserves at the other. Answers to the everlasting problems of conservation must include governance, proper transparency and perhaps most important, grassroots participation at many levels.



Dingo rules - both kangaroos and nutrient supplies.

Wed, 10 May 2017 09:39:01 GMT

Can we persuade sheep farmers to let in the dingo, so that kangaroos can stop noshing all the delicate vegetation? Now there is further evidence that the natural control of herbivores transfers nutrients around the whole landscape. The dingo seems to be a prime conservator too.



Climate Change drives early laying/hatching, but not only Temperature!

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 07:16:00 GMT

The tree swallow has magnificent migrations, like many of its ilk. The Alaskan warming however is more drastic than the rest of the continent, like Arctic regions elsewhere, so how does that influence the swallow’s “phenology?”



Bees succeed against the odds, even when solitary.

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 08:16:55 GMT

What are those small fliers hanging about the wall or the bank? They are not hoverflies because they seem to have nest holes, yet they don’t sting or buzz much either! The solitary bees and the mining bees are just one branch of the great bankers of our fruit tree heritage. They, along with the humble Bumblers, form a major corporation of the pollinators. Here’s a (very) brief life of little Andrena, plagued by cuckoos who are fellow bees. This does remind you of the commercial world of grab and take when you can!



Mountains of men in the Dinaric Alps-a study worthy of work in several more regions.

Wed, 12 Apr 2017 09:15:00 GMT

The Dutch, the Bosnians, the Scots, the Poles? Which army of men provided the tallest soldiers in those monotonous bloody battles? That fraught argument provided the grist in the past for discussion and possibly wars, but the genetics (and the food) has improved our knowledge. We now understand a little of what our Neolithic cultures have given us through migrations and the haplotypes that people carried with them.



Thai tigers survive and breed in the wild.

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 09:45:00 GMT

How will we view the current conservation crisis in the future. Tigers, like it or not, are at the forefront of poaching and habitat preservation. We will be judged on whether this is an oversight in counting Indochinese tigers or a genuine result of conservators who struggle to maintain the world’s great rainforests and often die in the attempt. Armed poachers are matched rarely in firepower by rangers and wardens, so protection here may involve more than patrolling. The cameras need to reveal faces and the legal profession needs to get busy on very heavy punishment for those who operate for the ugliest of all motives - greed.



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.
