Carnivores good for hunters or farmers or just plain dangerous?

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 11:56:23 GMT

Just what impact can we expect as large carnivores are returning to old haunts, despite a modern-day increase in the human populations of Europe and North America (maybe even in South America, Africa and Asia?) Would you vote for more ecosystem management like this?

Bottom trawling for orange roughies to get green light?

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 08:25:00 GMT

The lack of light reaching the animals in the deep sea is mirrored in a total lack of transparency in the Marine Stewardship Council, today in London. Read on to look at the implications for one large fish species as well as our sensitive bottoms!

Whale cultures rule in Galápagos.

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 11:30:00 GMT

A revolution took place in the Pacific over a 30-year period. Between the 1980s and 2014, new groups of sperm whales replaced the thousands who had normally occupied the Galápagos Islands area. Who was who and where did they emigrate or immigrate? The answers are here.

Sperm speed gene improves reproduction

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 13:43:26 GMT

Could humans benefit from a gene that speeds up the sperm as it swims? In a deer mouse, it works wonders for up to 14 litters per year and 9 offspring per litter! You do the math.

Going to the dogs in Sardinia.

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 13:05:31 GMT

We will soon have many unexpected insights into human and other species’ problems such as disease or simply anthropology. The chemicals that control our every movement and thought are inherited. Now even the dogs we breed can be recruited to help understand and back-up documentation of how inter-related we all are. Cancer and other disease problems are certainly being answered with this kind of research. Next we could see even more advances in research using information gleaned from other species.

Pacific bluefin tuna nears a critical state.

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 17:25:00 GMT

Will the Pacific see conservation happening as it had to do in the Atlantic? The case of the tuna species there, in past present and future scenarios, leaves us wondering which attitudes reign in Korea, Japan, the USA and Mexico.

The great migration of the painted lady.

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 08:35:00 GMT

Do the same individuals persevere across continents and deserts to achieve a yearly miracle migration? Its seems some do make it for 4000km, but they mainly rely on several generations forging north or south to reach suitable breeding habitat.

Common dolphins adapt to bay life.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 09:50:00 GMT

Dolphin worlds are no longer circus-like recreation for humans, but one oceanic species has found it possible to settle down in a relatively restricted habitat. Here is the story of their novel world, with I’m sure, more evolutionary possibilities to come.

Murder mystery involves a 5000-year-old personality

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 09:10:00 GMT

You are either obsessed with ancient times, as Europe became populated and China achieved the first imperial power - or you are bored stiff with it. Well here is one stiff who could manage to become the first immortal – if technology can finally pin the death on something apart from the freezing cold and loss of blood.

Marine predators forage hotspots at oceanic fronts.

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 07:40:00 GMT

The mechanisms of shelf-sea fronts are poorly understood. As a front passes, how do plankton and their consumers contribute to the ecology of sea and land nearby? Many species of predator specialise in visiting these fronts, whether transient or fixed, and using the warmer temperatures, the varying productivity and the food supply that gannets find a valuable diet during the breeding season.

Scotland the Wave (tidal power takes over in the north)

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 08:40:31 GMT

Wave power or tidal power? The answer probably depends on where you are. If you have the frightening power that has always inspired names like Cape Wrath, then those tides should produce the most power in Europe. On the other hand, the regular movement of waves could well be capable of inspiring a design to accumulate energy over a lengthy period, albeit with less energy production per unit.

GODAN: Worldwide Hunger indicates Help Needed!

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 18:25:00 GMT

We’re afraid that we have neglected the food security side of our responsibilities. Articles on Politics and Health have been published at the expense of this vital area, as the effects of consolidating food reserves are not only to alleviate criminal use of bushmeat, theft and extortion. We must also preserve areas for wildlife where otherwise people have been forced to cut down their forest to grow more crops/sell timber/build mines, roads or various infrastructure. GODAN are gathering in New York to spread expertise on agriculture and nutrition that will feed the parts of the world that are starving.

Mola mola, the sunfish genome is incredible!

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 09:10:00 GMT

The research effort on the sunfish now has its genome: one of the most useful tools to use on a species to discover how it has evolved such remarkable anatomy. It has been called a natural mutant, but it has simply and rapidly adapted to its oceanic habitat and food chain. How this was achieved within the genome is a story that will now unravel with more and more research into this fish, its adaptations and population genetics and that of many others.

Whales are loving the warm Pacific Arctic.

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 08:40:00 GMT

Boom time or bust? The terrible effects of the loss of our Arctic sea ice have been well-advertised. Rearing young, or simply hunting prey, in the case of polar bears, has become almost impossible where the ice has gone. This relatively good news is of the baleen whales that are benefitting in the Pacific from extra flow as well as upwelling that creates plankton population surges.

Extinction danger for great apes, Hawaiian plants and many more!

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 20:40:00 GMT

The IUCN have concentrated on plant species and great apes and Africa in their latest update to the Red List.
