Birds Fly into the Red

Posted on 24. September, 2010.

BirdLife International has announced, in the 2010 IUCN Red List update for birds, the extinction of the Alaotra Grebe. Restricted to a tiny area of east Madagascar, this species declined rapidly after carnivorous fish were introduced to the lakes in which it lived. This, along with the use of nylon gill-nets by fisherman which caught and drowned birds, has driven this species into extinction.

Nickel Chemical Transformation in Polluted Soils as Affected by Metal Source and Moisture Regime

Posted on 22. September, 2010.

It is important to examine chemical speciation, transformation and availability of heavy metals in polluted soils under different moisture conditions. The present study was, therefore, undertaken to study the fate of added Ni in different soils polluted with sludge or inorganic salt under field capacity and flooding moisture regimes.

Influence of Nutrient Addition on Growth and Accumulation of Cadium and Copper in Lemna Gibba

Posted on 22. September, 2010.

The objective of this study was to determine whether nutrient enrichment enhances the metal tolerance of floating macrophytes, which would therefore enable the growth of floating vegetation in constructed wetlands at metal concentrations that would otherwise inhibit plant viability.

Phosphorous Sorption Characteristics of the Bronx River Bed Sediments

Posted on 22. September, 2010.

Jingyu Wang and Hari K. Pant, who are both based in New York, consider how the degradation of water quality of the Bronx river may be influenced by an increased flux of phosphorus which is a major nutrient for algal growth.. Algal blooms and oxygen depletion within the river have degraded the water quality, endangered fishing, and limited recreational use.
