Snow Leopards might face extinction due to climate change and other factors

… 2,500 breeding adults to maintain their species and the effects of climate change has just made it more difficult to keep their number from decreasing further. The warming temperature in the areas where the snow leopard resides has caused most of their habitat unsuitable for their species to thrive in. According to the WWF, climate change caused a ripple effect on the areas where the snow leopard thrives. The increasing temperature in the mountains where snow leopards live has made some areas …

Climate change raises cat threat 

… analysis of two decades of records found how South Auckland, Glen Innes, the central city and pockets of West Auckland had the highest populations of stray cats, with spikes in December and March coinciding with breeding patterns. “I had the idea that we could take all this cat distribution data from Auckland and try to expand it throughout New Zealand and see whether there’s an effect when you have a climate change scenario for modelling.” Using the latest greenhouse gas …

Jurassic bark : Nature Plants

… lung defect, but a precedent has been set. Other research projects are attempting to recreate animals such as the quagga (a subspecies of zebra) and the auroch cattle of Pleistocene Europe by selective breeding from modern relatives. Genome editing has been proposed for re-engineering woolly mammoths or reintroducing dinosaurian characteristics into modern birds. In all this there is no talk of recreating the flora of ancient times. Is this simply an example of anti-plant discrimination or is …

New butterfly species found in forests of Arunachal | Zee News

… weeks in March every year, presumably spending a large part of the remaining year in a dormant state in larval or pupal stages, which are still unknown and the butterflies feed primarily on bird-droppings along cool streams in the forests. Even if the butterfly species has been described and named, much of its biology is still a mystery, Yogesh said. For instance, its larval host plants, breeding behavior and precise habitat requirements are unknown. The Banded Tit was recently described in a …
