For these trees growing in the woods close to the town ofGriffin, we only know that they were planted in the thirties of the last century. Hypotheses on the origin of this odd form of trunks vary – some states their intentional deformation for the manufacture of a comfortable timber ships, and some believe that during the Second World War by barely taken shape saplings drove tanks, tracks that are not broken, but ever hurting them.

NASA discovered a “forest” under the Arctic ice

A scientific expedition in conjunction with the U.S. space center, said that the Arctic Ocean is green staining of the proliferation of microscopic marine plants, which are essential for life on other seas, but had not survived until now in a ecosystem so cold.Global warming is behind a phenomenon that has not been detected in its full extent.The expedition ICESCAPE (short for Climate Impacts on Ecosystems and Chemistry of the Arctic) explored the waters of the Beaufort and Chukchi seas in Alaska aboard a U.S. icebreaker.
“We have seen a massive growth of phytoplankton between 800 centimeters and 1.3 meters in the first-year ice cover in the Chukchi Sea,” say the authors. This layer extends over 100 kilometers, a phenomenon that had not been observed so far. Changes in the Arctic had been detected by satellite imagery from NASA. It was thought that these plants green tinged water and are the basis of the marine food chain, only grew after the retreating sea ice, which occurs in summer. The problem, says biologist Sam Laney, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, is that, as a downpour made the desert bloom, the accumulation of melt water in short periods of time in the Arctic have important effects on the ecosystem. According to their analysis, the ice thinned, sunlight reaches the waters beneath the permafrost on the sea, allowing the plant to develop. Read the rest of this entry »

Earth to prepare humanity unpleasant surprises

The International Committee on Global Change and the geological environment GEOCHANGE (Germany), President of the Global Network of Earthquake Prediction (England) Elchin Khalilov has warned the world’s population of impending natural cataclysms.
According to scientists, the strongest earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March this year, as well as several major eruptions were caused by only one of the cycles of increased seismic activity of Earth.
Cycles of increased activity associated with the Earth releases energy core and mantle. There are a variety of periods, which are characterized by different strength and frequency (millions of years or months) of these emissions. According to Elchin Khalilov, the fact that the crust ceased to fluctuate after the devastating earthquake in Japan, does not mean that in the near future everything will be easy – simply there is an accumulation of energy, which spill new destructive natural phenomena.

Further – more. Against the backdrop of mysterious fascination of science, I even began self-improvement. All of these things eventually escalated into an unknown reality research. At the present time, I believe researchers contacted. And this – a special subject.

snakesScientists first discovered in boas case of “Immaculate Conception” – birth of female offspring without male participation. Article describing the unusual observations appeared in the journal Biology Letters. Brief paper writes BBC News.
Reproduction without males (parthenogenesis) is known for many species of invertebrates, particularly for insects. Among the vertebrates, parthenogenesis has been found, for example, lizards and some fish, but this method of propagation is very less common.
For boas Boa constrictor cases of parthenogenesis have hitherto been unknown. The authors of the new work found a snake that has produced 22 calves without his father.
