How can the tiny capacity of a bee brain store memory as capably as that of our own? The 2 are very similar in performance, according to this research, despite the disparity in size.

More on the pack of lies that emerge on logging worldwide. Maybe this time, the destruction can be slowed down to a stop, after these revelations on satellite-tracking the real damage to our forests.

Sustainable cotton: a need for investment

Sustainable cotton: a need for investment

Posted Thu, 26 Feb 2015 00:00:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

Who can stomach the great environmental costs of growing cotton? It has destroyed seas and bankrupted many farmers . It is now down to manufacturing brand names to support their growers in ways they have not managed before. In the modern tradition, fair trading has reached the clothing industry.

Planktonic growth and fishy futures.

Posted Wed, 25 Feb 2015 11:30:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

Both climate and ecosystem research is important, as our ocean temperatures and pH change. It is an acidic and a basic problem. How will we cope, if even more fish disappear? And there is more to this than just what we eat. The whole atmosphere and our coastal communities are affected .

The distant Titicaca, Scottish lochs, Russian Lake Baikal, and the wonderful Rift Valley lakes of Africa. Such productive waters but what prospects are there for any of these lakes to survive with even a modicum of their productivity or native fauna and flora, when we look at the Great Lakes?

So does Vietnam rehabilitate its wildlife in reserves, or just sneak back and eat them later? It is a question that every international worker has to ask themselves in every corrupt regime, for every single expensive effort to improve lives and wildlife. It is our joint responsibility to improve the environment, but our partners must be suspect in many cases.

The regulation of unilateral decisions on hydroelectric power reminds all of us that the water around us really does not belong to us. It belongs just as much to the fish and the water cycle that supplies us with the precious stuff!

Dragons and biodiversity seem miles apart. Here seadragons help us to understand just what might be left for us on a severely-depleted planet. Thanks to these researchers for getting to the far end of an old story from 60 years ago and using technology to provide us with the truth about fish phylogeny and our diverse marine life.

As the oceans change due to anthropomorphic and climatic change, the whales are perhaps our best way of monitoring their vast areas, even though this study only covers the Gulf of California.

The survival of wild species in South America is critical to any world effort at conservation, while the sad state of many zoo animals and others there caused legislation to be introduced in 2012. Here we have a chance to help a magnificent effort to save both wild and other animals, foully-abused , but now only in the past, we hope.

And why can baby elephants be taken across the world to China when almost every other species in danger is protected by international laws? Some anomalies still exist in conservation, perhaps explainable by the human rights issues that remain in more countries than we care to count.

How will energy be made available in Central Asia in the future? The former Soviet nations have built on their resources and discarded some past mistakes to plan solid and sensible renewable resources instead of continuing with the global warming and water-wasting industries that have helped destroy their Aral Sea.

We hate the irritation and the mess of blood parasites that attack us in the form of leeches and mosquitoes. The trouble is the leech does not infect us while the mosquito is simply the agent for the malaria parasite and many others, which it tries to resist with very useful immune responses.
