Potential for enhanced sequestration of carbon in soils supports evaluations
... likely permanence of soil carbon sequestration by different
methods. Assessment of ancillary environmental effects, such as impacts on biodiversity and emissions of other greenhouse gases, is necessary, as are sensitivity analyses to determine likely consequences over the range of applicable conditions. Compr...
Climate change plus human pressure caused large mammal extinctions in late Pleistocene

species may have filled the various ecosystem niches. In the late Pleistocene, however, something happened to make the number of large mammals nosedive continent-wide. This new analysis of archeological, climatic, ecological and simulation studies sh...
Veterinary Memorial Fund transforms grief into promise
