Scientists Use Fossilized Emu Eggshells To Discern Changes In Vegetation, Provide Additional Evidence Of Human Impact On Australian Landscape

...For instance, plants with less leaf area wouldhave reduced evapotranspiration, in which plants give off moisture to theatmosphere. This is moisture that would have contributed to additional rainfallinto the continental interior. Soils would have had less organic matter andless ability to hold moisture. Fir...

"Selective breeding has reduced flower scent to almost nothing," saysDudareva, a Purdue University assistant professor in the Department ofHorticulture and Landscape Architecture. "Flowers are bred for color, size andshelf life without any attention to scent. Floral scent disappear...

Fossilized Emu Eggshells Give Clues To 65,000 Years Of Vegetation And Climate Changes In Australia

... practices of the first human colonizers, may have reduced this mechanism and thus diminished the amount of rainfall reaching what is now the arid Australian interior. The influence of humans with their recurrent fires has been suggested as the cause of extinction for a least one Australian megafauna, the fl...
