Dragons increase in species numbers.

Dragons increase in species numbers.

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.

Pollution: chemical weapons destroyed in US

We all dream of a perfect world where grass is green and rivers flow through forests surrounding clean cities. Reality is a human concentration on warfare and greed for land. To make up for the sins of the past alone, we have to spend a lot of time and money in disposing of the mistakes. Now for the future of no forest, polluted land, and nothing left alive in the rivers and oceans.

Fascinating new squid behaviour in nature

Fascinating new squid behaviour in nature

To observe the cuttlefish or the squid is to see wonderful colour change ability. Maybe now, we can find out how exactly they use this ability in mating of deterrence of predators. Video has been used now to follow animals clandestinely, although one cam was noticed and ripped off by other squid!

Chimpanzee losses and successes.

Chimpanzee losses and successes.

How DO we save our nearest relative? The wild chimpanzee is far different from the tea-swilling and ultra-cute babies we are used to in various disguises. The existence of these populations in Africa echoes our own origins, but differently! To allow the fabulous gorilla or these bonobos and chimpanzee to disappear from our native Africa would be like allowing sand to slip through our despairing fingers. Stop the trapping and the logging. Immediate gain will not lead to any long-term advantage. We have lost most of the earth, so these precious animals and plants are just a dwindling reminder of the antics of ourselves and our ridiculous past.

The European snow vole, choughs and one bat are specialists, isolated mainly in alpine habitats while other species out-compete them at lower altitude. This is an interesting study from the Basque country, where the bat species is finally pinned down to its exact diet of mainly alpine moths. The use of DNA bar codes for identifying many different species is also praiseworthy, as it leads to further research now on the fauna and flora of many other environments.

Pluto approached by "strange" probe

Posted Tue, 06 Jan 2015 11:17:02 GMT by Dave Armstrong

We never know when one of these pieces of metal motoring around the solar system will come across novel information. It is unlikely to pick up anything obviously important to everyday knowledge, but the study of the planets has always been seen as crucial to our existence. We are threatened by internal and external factors, many of which could be explained better by pure and applied scientific investigation. Earth Times wishes the best for this relatively minor non-planetary probe. We could learn wonderful conceptual interpretations of distant objects, just as Hooke’s microscope and Galileo’s telescope began many a medical or geographical breakthrough.
