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.



Wood we/Wouldn't we sustain our woods-well we did, once!

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 13:05:00 GMT

Tropical forests are declining fast, but how greedy were ancient peoples in their robbing of the wood and resources from other forests. One example only shines of sustainability.



Cougars in Hollywood

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 07:40:43 GMT

How can foxes, badgers and other Carnivores survive when a giant freeway blocks their route to feeding areas? The demography, the genetics and the extinction risk are all considered here, with a resonance for all species that need some kind of wildlife corridor in order to fulfil their life potential.



International Bat Weekend is Here!

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 07:30:13 GMT

We need bats, but in the same way we need their prey the insects. It’s impossible to see all the services they perform in eating pests and even spreading seeds in the case of fruit bats, just as we seem to have ignored the bees working at pollination of orchards!



Evolution of placental lizards gave us advanced skinks,

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 23:00:01 GMT

It’s likely that these advanced vertebrates evolved extreme matrotrophy only once, but when we compare that habit with many other advanced features, it seems skinks come out top in adaptations for advanced life styles.



Has the mosquito had its Day?

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 10:40:00 GMT

We have the chance to counter new viral and ancient parasitic disease with rapid diagnostic technologies. Let’s grab the chance to win this battle against disease, even when we lose against the latest mutations of the deadly viruses.



California butterflies and neonicotinoids!

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 08:40:31 GMT

When a great, immoveable pollution source is faced by an increasingly smaller butterfly population, what is going to happen? Ask the bees, if their nervous systems are still savvy.



Australian Super Spider Colours!

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 12:05:05 GMT

The Australian spiders seem as distinct as the rest of their flora and fauna, with colour the distinguishing mark in this case. Despite their tiny size, these males manage to get noticed by the girls with their fabulous blue scales which amplify reflected light and never fade!
