A law has recently been established to create exclusive marine sanctuaries for 80% of zones around Palau. This will impact on food security and manage domestic fishing
he study shows that 70% of honey samples collected in Massachusetts contain at least one neonicotinoid, the pesticide class that biotech companies say have nothing to do with the bee die offs we are seeing around the world.
The researchers report that in the lab, the micromotors managed to remove 90 percent of the carbon dioxide from a solution of deionized water within five minutes.
Coral reefs, often referred to as “rainforests of the sea” simply “haven’t been able to adapt to the higher base temperatures of the ocean,” say the scientists.
The scientists emphasize that the plastic and fibers are found in the fishes’ guts.
The “neonics” are a class of pesticides that have previously been linked to declines in bee populations. Judges ruling means that sulfoxaflor comes off the market while the EPA does the work it should have done a long time ago.
Abnormally warm ocean temperatures are creating conditions that threaten to kill coral in the equatorial Pacific, north Pacific and western Atlantic oceans, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said on Monday.
Something should be done to save the endangered pollinators, and Norway has found a simple and effective solution to this problem – a safe passage for the bee population is planned to be built in Oslo, Norway’s capital. This world’s first ‘highway for bees’ will be a network of green zones of the city, such as green roofs and balconies, as well as private gardens and flower beds. It will make it possible for the pollinators to move safely through these flowering habitats inside the city.
By Omar Cherif I have always been fascinated by ants. How they are social beings that operate in armies and live in colonies, and how they have made it to the Qur’an ― there is a full ‘Sura’ (Chapter) named after them. And since where I am staying now there are lots of ants, I […]
Are you an insect magnet? Insect magnets attract annoying insects the second they walk outdoors — or so it seems. If this describes you, take comfort in knowing that one of the ways you can fight back against mosquitoes, gnats, flies, no-see-ums and other pesky bugs doesn’t have to involve covering yourself with a sticky spray or engaging in chemical warfare. To help you enjoy going outdoors, try strategically placing insect-repelling plants in your garden or on your patio.
We’ve all seen those creepy crawly bugs around our homes. But what most of us don’t know is that our homes are filled with a profusion of insects and their relatives, collectively called arthropods, most of which we never see. What are the most common ones you should know about?
