Will we release these reincarnated mammoths?

Will we release these reincarnated mammoths?

Darwin would have called us armchair conservationists, but this is even worse. While he was an armchair theorist (compared to Wallace), we may begin to spend our time and money trying to correct past extinctions. Tinkering is unlikely to be an answer to the continuing loss of biodiversity from every single habitat on land and water. Conservation of what we have is going to be much more difficult than some fairly basic genetic engineering.

When we have learned of the sensory abilities of marine creatures such as the superb world traveller, the leatherback, perhaps then we will be able to both use new linked technology and understand the oceans better.

How popular are these apparently so aggressive and pest-like praying mantids? They are great pest-controllers, have a huge variety of different species, from flower mantis to giant African “tigers of the cabbage patch;” they make marvellous, quite attentive pets and don’t bother your mother because they die after their short adult span. Now we learn something new about a familiar animal. Those leaps they made as nymphs are actually carefully plotted, either to escape from their cannibalistic siblings, or to jump on tiny flies. The wonder of super-mantis never stops.

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?

When they said we evolved, we never thought we were related to these guys. What a nerve, to think ctenophore genomes could reveal such personal relationships.

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.
