Marine biologist Judith Oakley, who headed there after being tipped off by a friend.

She said there appeared to be three species: the common smoothhound and starry smoothhound — both houndsharks — and the nursehound, a species of catshark.

 

Mrs Oakley said the common smoothhound was classed as "vulnerable" under the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species — and therefore on a par with the polar bear. The "near threatened" nursehound, she added, was in the same category as the white rhino.


Mrs Oakley, of Aberdulais, urged the public to sign up to the Shark Trust's No Limits No Future campaign. "Evidence like this can go towards demonstrating the need for enforcing catch limits before it is too late," she said.

Discovery of bud-break gene could lead to trees adapted for a changing climate

Discovery of bud-break gene could lead to trees adapted for a changing climate | climate change | Scoop.it
The function of a gene that controls the awakening of trees from winter dormancy, has been discovered by scientists. This function is a critical factor in the trees' ability to adjust to environmental changes associated with climate change. While other researchers have identified genes involved in producing the first green leaves of spring, the discovery of a master regulator in poplar trees could eventually lead to breeding plants that are better adapted for warmer climates.
