Jackdaws lose their winning ways

Jackdaws lose their winning ways

A lovely species like the Eurasian jackdaw could be expected to have an interesting, eventful and full life among its colleagues, his mate and his nestlings. Not so, I’m afraid, for the high-fliers in society.

Diet in mammals is complex

How could you classify the diets of mammals for so long without noting the need many species have for fruit, certain plants, or even a bit of animal material for a so-called herbivore? Carnivores need roughage in the same way the human diet has special requirements and herbivores can cheat by gaining essential minerals they would be unable to extract from plants.

Why and how do island species suffer so much from cats, rats and dogs, and the rest of the invasive species? A few hundred years too late, we might finally be getting around to countering the effects of predators on the most vulnerable of animal species. There are also the native predators to consider, of course.

Nature has wonderful problems to solve, but human help is needed when the precarious genetic integrity of our Pyrenean bears is threatened. One bear has built up the population, but now the inbreeding that threatens all small rare species' populations must be reversed.
