Study Calls for Urgent Need for Improved Human-Wildlife Conflict Management Across India

20160928-IMG_2546.R.jpg

There is an urgent need to strengthen human-wildlife conflict management across India, as up to 32 wildlife species are damaging life and property in this nation of 1 billion people, according to a recent study published in the July 2017 edition of Human Dimensions of Wildlife.

Kansas State University researchers published a study in Frontiers in Environmental Science that showed Manganese relates differently than its cancer-causing cousin, arsenic, to dissolved organic matter in groundwater. Researchers say more studies are need to understand the relationship.

The Blue-Winged Amazon: A New Parrot Species From the Yucatán Peninsula

In 2014, during a visit to a remote part of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, ornithologist Dr. Miguel A. Gómez Garza came across parrots with a completely different colour pattern from other known species. A study published today in the open-access journal PeerJ names these birds as a new species.

Ecologist: Tracking Bacterial Movement Between Humans, Animals Key to Understanding Antibiotic Resistance

Could This Strategy Bring High-Speed Communications to the Deep Sea?

binary-berkeley-960.jpg

A new strategy for sending acoustic waves through water could potentially open up the world of high-speed communications to divers, marine research vessels, remote ocean monitors, deep sea robots, and submarines. By taking advantage of the dynamic rotation generated as the acoustic wave travels, also known as its orbital angular momentum, Berkeley Lab researchers were able to pack more channels onto a single frequency, effectively increasing the amount of information capable of being transmitted.

Rising Seas Could Result in 2 Billion Refugees by 2100

In the year 2100, 2 billion people – about one-fifth of the world’s population – could become climate change refugees due to rising ocean levels. Those who once lived on coastlines will face displacement and resettlement bottlenecks as they seek habitable places inland, according to Cornell University research.

Microbes From Ships May Help Distinguish One Port From Another

Much the way every person has a unique microbial cloud around them, ships might also carry distinct microbial signatures. The key is testing the right waters--the bilge water from the bottoms of ships.

Legislation Will Strengthen Coordination in the Gulf Region

Senate Bill S. 1373 and House Bill H.R. 2923 would authorize the Gulf of Mexico Alliance as a regional coordinator for Gulf of Mexico ecological issues. This is similar to the role the Chesapeake Bay Foundation serves for Chesapeake Bay.
