Irish deer have died simply because they were not much was to migrate from the onslaught of cold weather and nothing to eat. But prehistoric goat M. Balearicus was much more tenacious. Ancient goats for many years lived in an almost empty island, adapted for the rigors of an unusual way, turning into some kind of reptile. Analysis of the bones of goats, the scientists found, showed that they could change their metabolism almost at will. Some M. balearicus change the speed of growth and metabolism of as needed from season to season and during the ‘hard times’, such as drought.

With such, the researchers note, they are first encountered in mammals. Scientists have learned bacteria convert carbon dioxide into fuel Scientists still managed to get a new kind of bacteria that were able to quite efficiently produce complex organic compound – isobutyraldehyde. According to Evergreen Capital Partners, who has experience with these questions. That isobutyraldehyde, from which possible future production of various chemicals, many scientists believe a promising high-energy hydrocarbon fuel in the future. Previously, all attempts of scientists to force the bacteria to process waste and other hazardous substances into biofuels were unsuccessful. Bacteria are too inefficiently produced gases. Scientists have recently obtained a new type of bacteria produces isobutyraldehyde in 10 times more efficient than previously obtained and produce hydrogen is 100 times more efficient than ethanol.

A source component for the production of micro-organisms useful product is the greenhouse gas CO2. Thus, another step in the development of technologies for alternative energy sources based on biofuels. Based on pumpkin and zucchini scientists create the most useful vegetables future Biologists believe that the wide spectrum of carotenoids in pumpkin and zucchini provides an excellent way for genetic improvement of vegetables. It is based on pumpkin and zucchini, you can create new vegetables with improved nutritional value and rich in antioxidants. As it turned out, vegetables, orange-red, and yellow-orange flowers contain 9 times more carotenoids than other vegetables. Jim Crane will undoubtedly add to your understanding. A richest in carotenoids have been just the pumpkin and squash these colors. Therefore, these vegetables in the future will form the basis of the most useful new kinds of vegetables. Carotenoids play an important role in human health and are the main sources of provitamin A and antioxidants. Pumpkin and squash contain a lot of dietary carotenoids, particularly lutein, alpha-carotene and beta-carotene. Scientists hope that if the breeders and biologists will be able to the basis of zucchini and pumpkin bring a new vegetable, it will become one of the most useful for human body because of the rich heritage of useful properties of squash and pumpkins. Photofact week: wildlife in the heart of Europe and the horrific pictures Pollution in China last week we offered you a glimpse into the world of wildlife in the heart of Europe, enjoy the beauty of untouched nature and its amazing inhabitants. And then we have shown what can happen to nature, if it mercilessly exploit and pollute the environment – look at the horrific pictures of pollution in China and think.

International Conference

Recall that a week earlier in the Alma-Ata region heavy rainfall and melting snow caused the night of Friday, March 12, to scour the dam and dam reservoir Kyzyl-Agash, resulting in the death of 40 people. In 2010 held a lot of different climatic index failing to develop a single comprehensive climate agreement in Copenhagen in December last year, the majority of the world, apparently, decided to revenge in the current year. This is evidenced by a fairly large number of different climate forum in which leaders and representatives of countries around the world to discuss pressing issues have become change climate change on our planet. For example, already on 31 March in London to host International Conference on Financing for dealing with climate change on the planet. This forum will be convened within the framework of agreements reached December 2009 at an international climate summit in Copenhagen. Among them – the early funding for developing countries in the 2010-12 year, the goal of which Britain has already pledged 1.5 million pounds. 20-22 April Bolivian city of Cochabamba will host the first world conference on climate change and land rights.

The intention to participate in this forum said delegations from 70 countries worldwide. Recall that at the end of last year Bolivian leader Evo Morales said he intends to spend in Bolivia's climate conference, which will become an alternative was held in Copenhagen in December the United Nations summit on climate. The main task of the summit in Bolivia – reach a consensus on the eve of the final conference on the climate, which will be held in Mexico City in late 2010.
