"Bee populations are so low in the US that it now takes 60% of the country’s surviving colonies just to pollinate one California crop, almonds. And that’s not just a west coast problem—California supplies 80% of the world’s almonds, a market worth $4 billion."

Scientists discover another cause of bee deaths, and it's really bad news

Scientists have delved deeper into the mystery of dying bees, and discovered that the cause of the problem is more pervasive than thought. This goes also for home use of these types of chemicals.

Un articolo pubblicato sulla rivista PLOS ONE descrive la scoperta di un dinosauro teropode che è stato chiamato Gualicho shinyae. Esso è stato classificato nel gruppo dei carnosauri e ciò lo rende particolarmente interessante perché le sue braccia sono piccole come quelle del più celebre Tyrannosaurus rex, classificato in un altro gruppo di teropodi. Ciò fa pensare che questa caratteristica si sia evoluta diverse volte in maniera indipendente. Leggi i dettagli nell'articolo!

Earliest record of red algae   Scientists at the Swedish Museum of Natural History have found fossils of 1.6 billion-year-old(Ga) probable red algae. The spectacular finds publishing on 14 March in the open access journal PLOS Biology indicate that advanced multicellular life evolved much earlier than previously thought. The scientists found two kinds of fossils resembling red algae in uniquely well-preserved sedimentary rocks at Chitrakoot in central India. One type is thread-like the other…
