Cambridge University Eggs

During the experiment, the scientists caused the hydrocarbon composition on one of the worker ants and other animals that look so that female labor is going to lay their eggs. Click Hikmet Ersek to learn more. This structure enables the ants-'politseyskim 'to identify the violator of the order, among other animals. The result marked ant was attacked by 'the police'. As noted by scholars, This chemical composition does not allow individuals to cheat the workers 'intelligence' – that smell is probably impossible to disguise. And even if the female will lay eggs, not producing such a composition, the problems it can not be avoided, as this composition will be present on pending eggs, and, of course, the same mix is on the eggs of the uterus, and working individuals, that all went well, you need to mix the eggs with the eggs of the queen. And, to mark the eggs and avoid the most smell the female is not able to. Therefore, either she will be found, or will be deferred to her eggs were found. In this situation, 'police' in any case will do the job.

Scientists have refuted the ability of plants to emit atmosphere of greenhouse gases new study scientists at Cambridge University has denied the earlier results showing that plants are able to produce methane – one of the most dangerous greenhouse gases. Reported that plants can produce methane appeared in 2006. Then a team of scientists has shown that some herbal and woody plants in normal conditions, produce large amounts of methane (about 10-30% of all emissions methane in the atmosphere).

Giant Siberian

Two weeks ago in the north of the Russian capital in the Khovrino launched a new innovative system of separate waste collection. Giant Siberian swamp cooler is a global atmospheric scientists from Tomsk, Novosibirsk, Barnaul, Moscow, Krasnoyarsk, Ulan-Ude, gathered for a conference on climate and environmental monitoring systems in Siberia, to discuss scientific and technological basis for monitoring and modeling climatic processes the Greater Vasyuganskoye swamp. It is the largest wetland system of the northern hemisphere of the planet is located in the central sector of the West Siberian Plain and is a geographical phenomenon in the sense of an unusually widespread wetlands. The area of the Big Vasyuganskoye swamp more than 55 thousand square meters. km, which is about 2% of the total area of peat bogs around the world. Great Vasyugan swamp is a natural phenomenon that has no analogues in world.

It is a unique composition of natural systems, the extreme complexity of the landscape structure, the development of specific types of marshes. Experts believe that the giant swamp Vasyugan withdraws from the atmosphere, the huge mass of carbon that causes the greenhouse effect, and stores it in his column in the form of peat deposits. Great Vasyugan marsh also serves the important function of biosphere reserves, associated with carbon sequestration in peat deposit and the production of oxygen marsh vegetation. In fact, this swamp is a global cooling of the atmosphere. In its biospheric role and functions of the regional Great Vasyugan swamp is not inferior world famous complex of reserves of the Central Amazon. Russia intends to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Permanent Representative of Russia's UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said that the post-Kyoto agreement will be meaningless if it does not sign one of the largest of issuers. He noted that Russia intends to play an important role in the development of a future climate regime at the final stage of negotiations. In addition, Russia intends to 2020 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 10-15% compared with 1990.

He said that in total for this would mean a reduction of total emissions in 30 years to 30 billion tons. Permanent Russia's representative believes that the task of combating climate change must be addressed in the context of responding to the challenges of global energy security. Recall that last week in Bangkok finished the penultimate round of negotiations on a new comprehensive agreement on climate change. Its members have achieved greater clarity to the sequence of actions necessary for the development of successor to the Kyoto Protocol. The latest round of talks before the meeting in Copenhagen from 2 to 6 November in Barcelona. Photo fact of the week: Mother Nature Patterns Last week we asked our readers to look at flora and fauna of nature at very close range. And what did we see? Stunning designs created by nature itself, decorated with a variety of body fauna, and landscapes are fascinating natural forms of our gaze. Enjoy these beautiful patterns in our PHOTO 'Patterns of Mother Nature. "

Biofuels

Roshydromet drafted climate doctrine, and the Ministry of Energy proposes to create a market for the sale of carbon credits. Rostekhnadzor called the most favorable and unfavorable environmental terms of the Krasnodar Territory. Winter in Russia will be reduced by almost a month. In Russia there will be domestic analogue TV channels Discovery and National Geographic. Climate change on Earth is much faster than predicted.

Researchers found that the same animals live at both poles of the Earth. Tropical forests are absorbing more carbon dioxide. Swan – a bird in 2009. Whale Week: World Day of whales and Photo-fact ‘in the world of whales. ” —- A short review of the major environmental news for the week. —- The chemical method of producing biofuel U.S. researchers have developed the first single-stage synthesis of the precursor of biofuels unprocessed agricultural residues. The results of the work will lead to the development of a simple and effective way to produce biofuel. Biochemist Ron Rains (Ron Raines) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison received directly 5 gidroksimetilfurfural 5-hydroxymethyl-fufural (HMF) of raw corn straw. The resulting compound can be used as feedstock for the synthesis of many substances, including the potential as a biofuel dimetilfuran dimethylfuran (DMF). —- Off the coast of Ireland recorded spills of up to 300 tons of oil in 120 miles south of the Irish port of Cork in the Atlantic got about 300 tons of fuel oil. According to the Ministry of Transport Ireland, a fuel leak, presumably, could occur during refueling ships of the Navy of Russia, who are currently in the area. The representative of the Irish Ministry of Transport special noted that in this case we are not talking about the accident or collision of ships. —- Medvedev: Baykal should be clean and comfortable for the rest one of the world’s largest freshwater lake – Baikal – must be clean and at the same time have a developed tourist infrastructure, said Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at a meeting with the governor of Irkutsk Region Igor Yesipovsky. —- Two solar and lunar eclipses occur four to During the International Astronomical Year – 2009 Rich in rare astronomical phenomena will be this year. At today’s press secretary main / Pulkovo / Astronomical Observatory RAS Sergey Smirnov by press conference at the regional center of ITAR-TASS news agency, until the end of this year there will be six eclipses – two solar and lunar four. Of the four lunar eclipses three – February 9, July 7 and August 5-6 – are the half-shadow, he said. In his said, ‘in Russia will observe the solar eclipse July 22 and the shadow lunar eclipse on December 31. In the southern regions of Siberia and the Far East can be observed partial solar eclipse on July 21-22 “, – noted Pulkovo astronomer. —- Tea bags is hazardous to health researchers from the Medical College at Washington University in St. Louis (USA) found that in packaged tea contains dangerously high quantities of fluoride.
