Scientists call for less destructive remediation at DOE sites
...e low-level contamination and preserved a healthy, thriving
ecosystem whose stable water levels are rare in other reservoirs that are intensively managed for recreational, flood and energy concerns. The scientists stress that they endorse and support remediation, especially for wastes that have the p...
Study marks increased trends in infectious disease occurrences in our oceans
... Lafferty. "Infectious disease should increase in thriving
populations as much or more as in stressed populations. Probably the most alarming result of our study is the suggestion of fewer diseases in fishes. As we fish stocks down, the remaining individuals may be too sparse to transmit infectious diseases,...
Study probes ecosystem of tree holes
..., protozoa, and mosquito larvae. It's a generally thriving
community where these critters battle each other in a mini-survival-of-the-fittest. To perform his study, Kneitel recreated the tree hole ecosystem in the laboratory, which allowed him to change the parameters to create different ecological s...
Dispute over life in Antarctic lake
...ice, suggesting that the lake supports a small but thriving
microbial ecosystem. But molecular biologist Sergey Bulat of the Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute, Russia, has created a furore by questioning the accuracy of this research. At last week's meeting of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Researc...
New signs of life found at the Poles
...says, "Although it's usual to find micro-organisms thriving
under quartz and translucent rocks in hot deserts because enough light gets through, we wouldn't have expected this type of colonization in the polar regions where most of the rocks are opaque. Also, the harsh UV- radiation and violent winds make for...
