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! 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.

We rarely come across research that leads to true connections with human evolution in other animals, but menopause is an almost unique event that has deep meaning for survival. With these whales, we have a link to one of our own particular characteristics that can only be investigated in these species. Who knows what information we may find among orca ecotypes and even other unique species.

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.
