"A volcanic eruption on the Galapagos Islands has raised fears the ecosystem that inspired Charles Darwin's theory of evolution may be under threat.
On Monday, the Wolf volcano on Isabela Island erupted for the first time in 33 years, spewing fire, smoke and lava.
Experts say the eruption poses no risk to people living on the island.
The island holds the world's only population of pink iguanas but authorities say that they are not in immediate danger".

"When Carlos Jared tried to ship a jar of dead velvet worms collected in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest to a colleague in Germany in 2006, he had no plans to derive a drug or other product from the creatures. He just wanted to probe the reproductive system of a rare invertebrate that gives birth to live young. But Brazilian authorities denounced him as a “biopirate.”
The evolutionary biologist at the Instituto Butantan in São Paulo had run afoul of a law aiming to clamp down on what Brazil perceived as rampant pillaging of its biological resources. Jared hadn’t filled out all the paperwork required under law MP 2186, so the worms were confiscated. Worse was yet to come. “They dragged my name through the mud. It was a psychological massacre,” he says. It took him 6 years to get another permit for fieldwork, and he is still fighting in court thousands of dollars in fines.

It was a psychological massacre,” he says. It took him 6 years to get another permit for fieldwork, and he is still fighting in court thousands of dollars in fines.
Jared is not the only scientist to run afoul of draconian regulations, sometimes because of nothing more than a clerical oversight. “Biodiversity was deemed so valuable that nobody was allowed to research it anymore,” says Eduardo Pagani, drug development manager at the Brazilian Biosciences National Laboratory in Campinas. “They locked it in a safe and criminalized anyone who tried to work with it.”
But after years of wrangling over how to fix the law, in which officials sought to balance the interests of scientists, the agricultural industry, and biotech firms with those of indigenous populations demanding compensation for traditional knowledge, Brazil President Dilma Rousseff on 20 May signed a law that is raising hopes among scientists. Like its predecessor, the new “biodiversity law” regulates research on “genetic resources”: an all-encompassing term covering everything from genes and proteins to oils and fragrances. It sets rules for sharing benefits with indigenous peoples when R&D leads to a product, such as a drug, shampoo, energy drink, or industrial enzyme, while eliminating bureaucratic hassles and encouraging biodiversity research. Scientists will no longer be “molested” or “bullied” by unreasonable regulation, science minister Aldo Rebelo said on Wednesday while unveiling the laws".___

"About 18,000 species are named every year — adding to nearly 2 million that have already gotten a name. On May 21, the International Institute of Species Exploration at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry released its latest list of top-10 new species. As the institute said via press release, the goal is to highlight the fascinating discoveries being made even while species go extinct faster than they can be identified. “The last vast unexplored frontier on Earth is the biosphere,” said Quentin Wheeler, president of the College of Environmental Science and Forestry. "We have only begun to explore the astonishing origin, history, and diversity of life."

"Scientists have revealed the musical, flirtatious side of a common spider.
Alexander Sweger and Prof George Uetz from the University of Cincinnati recorded the percussive courtship display of the so-called purring wolf spider Gladicosa gulosa.
They played the male spiders' call to females, revealing that they used leaves to transmit sound.
They presented the findings at the Acoustical Society of America annual meeting.
The researchers think this could provide clues about the earliest evolution of sound-based communication.
When the team started their research on this North American spider species they found that the few papers that had been published on it mentioned the sound it made - a quiet "chorus of spiders" that ecologists reported hearing in the forests of the US.

"A unique adaptation in the foot of birds is the presence of a thumb-like opposable toe, which allows them to grasp and perch. However, in their dinosaur ancestors, this toe was small and non- opposable, and did not even touch the ground, resembling the dewclaws of dogs and cats. Remarkably, the embryonic development of birds provides a parallel of this evolutionary history: The toe starts out like their dinosaur ancestors, but then its base (the metatarsal) becomes twisted, making it opposable".

"Parasitic worms can pose a serious threat to the Dungeness crab, a commercially important fishery species found along the west coast of North America. The worms are thought to have caused or contributed to the crash of the crab fishery of central California during the last half century. New research shows that infected crabs can rid themselves of parasites by moving into the less salty water of estuaries. Low salinity kills the worms creating a parasite refuge for the crabs".

"A cartwheeling spider, a bird-like dinosaur and a fish that wriggles around on the sea floor to create a circular nesting site are among the species identified as the Top 10 New Species for 2015. Two animals -- a frog that gives birth to tadpoles and a wasp that uses dead ants to protect its nest -- are unusual because of their parenting practices. Also on the list are an animal that might surpass the new species distinction to be an entirely new phylum, a 9-inch walking stick and a photogenic sea slug. Rounding out the top 10 are a coral plant described as endangered almost as soon as it was discovered and a red-and-green plant used during Christmas celebrations in Mexico".

"Scientists have discovered a new species of fossil in England -- and identified it as an ancient parasitic intruder. The fossil species -- a 'tongue worm', which has a worm-like body and a head and two pairs of limbs -- is actually a parasite whose representatives today live internally in the respiratory system of a host, which it enters when it is eaten".

A new study of nearly all the trees and shrubs in the southern Appalachians suggests that roughly half of the species can trace their relatives to thousands of miles away in Asia. Most of the rest likely arose within North America, the researchers say".

"It takes a lot of nutrients to build an egg. One of the big questions among researchers who study the eggs of migratory birds is where those nutrients come from -- does the mother make the egg directly out of what she eats during the breeding season, or does she save up nutrients consumed on her wintering grounds? The answer appears to be both for Common Eiders, large, sea-going ducks that breed in the Arctic".

"To avoid overfishing and aid in sustainable exploitation, the status of the fish stocks has to be monitored regularly. In many cases stock assessment is based on fishery-dependent data generated from fish markets or creel surveys. The assumption is: the lower the catches in a certain unit of time, the smaller the stock of fish should be. Biologists have now shown that some fish species show enhanced gear-avoidance behavior in regions with high angling intensity compared to fish exposed to low levels of exploitation near marine protected areas".

"Recent storms across south eastern Queensland filled waterways with sediments flowing down the Brisbane River and staining the usually beautiful blue Moreton Bay a muddy brown.
The deadly storm on May 1 was caused by an east coast low.
The storm dropped more than 360 millimetres of rain in just three hours, sparking flash flooding and causing distinct river plumes to form along the Queensland coastline.
On May 3, after the storm had passed, the Operational Land Imager on the Landsat 8 satellite acquired this view of a brown plume from the Brisbane River entering Moreton Bay.

On May 3, after the storm had passed, the Operational Land Imager on the Landsat 8 satellite acquired this view of a brown plume from the Brisbane River entering Moreton Bay.
Flood waters usually contain elevated levels of sediment and coloured dissolved organic matter.
Sediment tends to scatter red light, and coloured dissolved organic matter absorbs blue light.
As a result, a brown colour is visible at the river's mouth where these two optical phenomena work in concert.
However, as you move farther away from the river mouth, the coarser sediments tend to settle to the bottom but the coloured dissolved organic matter still hangs around in the water column absorbing blue light.
Scientists think the elevated levels of coloured dissolved organic matter cause the yellow-green patches in Moreton Bay.
It was the second time in as many weeks, the nation's east coast was hit by severe storms and devastating flooding caused by east coast lows.
In late April a similar tempest brought destructive winds, heavy rains and floods to the New South Wales coast".___

"Predatory seals are constraining the recovery of cod stocks in Scottish West coast waters, research suggests. Losses of cod, through fishing and natural causes, have remained high for many years and have caused long-term decline in the stock -- in some years, fishing removed around 50% of the total weight of the stock. The study found that, although fishing has now halved, predation by seals has rapidly increased to compensate, eating up more than 40% of the total stock".

This core is destined to slowly cool down over the eons as a white dwarf star.
The unprecedented sharpness of this Hubble Space Telescope image has revealed surprising details of the nebula ejection process, helping scientists to resolve some of the outstanding mysteries of the complex shapes and symmetries of planetary nebulas.
Astronomers think the hourglass shape is produced by the expansion of a fast stellar wind within a slowly expanding cloud that is denser near its equator than its poles.
The nebula's glowing delicate rings outline the tenuous walls of the hourglass.
Nitrogen lights up in red, hydrogen in green and oxygen in blue.
It is predicted that our Sun will meet the same fate in around six billion years. When our Sun becomes a red giant, it's outer envelope expands to engulf Mercury, Venus, and almost certainly, the Earth as well".___

Under lower mantle conditions, it is thought that the arrangement of electrons in carbonate minerals changes under the pressure stress in such a way that iron may be significantly redistributed. A research team has now focused on the high-pressure chemistry of a carbonate mineral called siderite, FeCO3, commonly found in hydrothermal vents. Their findings help resolve questions about the presence of iron-containing lower mantle carbonates".
