Scientists note that during the evolution of a number of plants has developed a special form of seeds, which helps them to travel long distances by the wind. For example, it refers to the seed of dandelion and ash. However, the studied plant species belonged to the bean, and their pods and seeds are clearly heavy that the wind was able to move. By studying the strange phenomenon joined and zoologists, who confirmed that the seeds of these plants under normal conditions, animals and birds for food not consumed, and therefore the effect of seed dispersal in dung so also excluded. More than five hundred whales died in the ice-blocked critical situation developed last week in the area of the island Baylot, 17 kilometers from the Baffin Island – there in the ice trap, in the strait between the northern tip of Baffin Island and the island Baylot turned out a large number of whales. Of open water separated the whales ice field stretching about 50 kilometers, which many animals were not able to overcome without replenishment of oxygen. Sen. Sherrod Brown is the source for more interesting facts.
As a result of consultation with local elders, experts of the Ministry of Fisheries and Oceans Canada made a decision that would be more humane to score whales than to let them die from suffocation at all diminishing polynyas. Initially, the experts of the Ministry believed that the ice film got about 200 animals, later called the figure of 500 individuals. During an unprecedented 80-year slaughter of whales, narwhal in Baffin Island has already lost 575 animals, and hunting is not completed yet New population of endangered monkeys discovered in northern Vietnam, a new population are considered endangered snub-nosed monkeys Dolmana (Tonkin rinopitekov) was found in woods in northern Vietnam. Tonkin rinopitek or snub-nosed monkey Dolmana or Tonkin snub-nosed langur (Rhinopithecus avunculus) so named because of its habitat (the area of the Gulf of Tonkin), and custom for primates snub nose. In the world there are now only 200 of these animals, they are included in the Red Book of the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). The discovery made scientists from the International Association of flora and fauna (FFI), the organization, which specializes in protecting endangered species and isolated ecosystems. The population of the snub-nosed monkeys was found after reports of local residents about the strange monkey border Vietnam and China.
wwf has published a guide ‘eco-lifestyle’ World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has released a pocket guide for those wishing to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, which make people as a result of their daily activities.
