The #Extinction of Primates: 60 percent of the 500 known #primate species are on the verge of extinction #MSM

The #Extinction of Primates: 60 percent of the 500 known #primate species are on the verge of extinction #MSM | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

A new research study has found that around 60 percent of the 500 known primate species are on the verge of extinction. With around 75 percent of all species declining in numbers, this new discovery sparked an uproar in the scientific community who are now calling to raise global awareness of the plight of the world’s primates and the costs of their loss to ecosystem health and human society.

 

Primates are essential to biodiversity in the tropics, contribute to natural regeneration and are important to many cultures and religions. In order to study the effect human activity has on primate survival, researchers combined data from the International Red List of the world nature conservation organization International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) with data from the United Nations (UN) database to establish forecasts and development trends for the next 50 years.

 

Based on this data, researchers were able to establish forecasts and development trends for the next 50 years. They determined that a primate’s natural habitat is situated in areas that experience high levels of poverty and lack of education. As a result, locals tend to hunt primates for meat and supply the illegal pet trade. The scientists predict that within the next fifty years, we will experience extinction events for many different primate species, like the ring-tailed lemur, eastern gorilla, and baboons.

 

“Conservation is an ecological, cultural and social necessity. When our closest relatives, the non-human primates, become extinct, this will send a warning signal that the living conditions for humans will soon deteriorate dramatically,” says Eckhard W. Heyman a scientist at the German Primate Center  (DPZ) and a co-author of the study.

Dangerous, Multipronged Storm Strafing Central/Northern #California | Category 6™ | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
What may become known as the President’s Day Storm of 2017 barreled into the San Francisco Bay area on Monday morning. The core of the storm was an atmospheric river roughly 75 to 100 miles wide, pointing a firehose of moisture toward vulnerable foothills and urban areas. With soils already sodden, the risk of flash flooding was high, and the tail end of the storm promised to bring ferocious winds into the area that could knock out power for many thousands of residents, in some cases for prolonged periods. Toward the Sierra, the storm will deliver yet another onslaught of torrential rain and several feet of mountain snow, as the region’s water infrastructure groans under its fiercest assault in a number of years.

"Extraordinary" Levels of #Pollution Have Been Found 10 Km Deep in the #Mariana Trench #oceans

"Extraordinary" Levels of #Pollution Have Been Found 10 Km Deep in the #Mariana Trench #oceans | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
Turns out, even the most remote parts of Earth aren't safe from our trash and toxic pollution.

Scientists have found that "extraordinarily high" levels of banned industrial chemicals are contaminating marine life more than 10 km deep (6 miles) into the Mariana Trench, and just a few kilometres above that, beer cans and plastic bags litter the seabed.

A team from Newcastle University in the UK has been sampling small, prawn-like crustaceans called amphipods from the depths of two of the world's deepest trenches - the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean, and the Kermadec Trench near New Zealand.

Despite the fact that these trenches are both more than 10 km deep and located some 7,000 km (4,340 miles) apart, the researchers found extremely high levels of toxic chemicals in amphipods collected from each.

And when we say "extremely high", that's even compared to some of the most polluted places in the world.

The highest levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) - chemicals banned in the 1970s after being linked to cancer - found in amphipods from the Mariana Trench were 50 times greater than levels found in crabs near the Liaohe River system, one of the most polluted rivers in China.

The level is only rivalled by one other place on Earth - Suruga Bay in Japan, an "infamous pollution blackspot".

"We still think of the deep ocean as being this remote and pristine realm, safe from human impact, but our research shows that, sadly, this could not be further from the truth," says one of the team, Alan Jamieson.

"In fact, the amphipods we sampled contained levels of contamination similar to that found in Suruga Bay - one of the most polluted industrial zones of the northwest Pacific. What we don't yet know is what this means for the wider ecosystem, and understanding that will be the next major challenge."

This isn't the first we've heard of pollution accumulating in the depths of the world's oceans.

Kea #parrot shows cooperation and smarts like #chimps, #elephants and #children #brain #mind #Gaia | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

Cooperation between individuals is one of the defining features of our species. While other animals, such as chimpanzees, elephants, coral trout and rooks also exhibit cooperative behaviors, it is not clear if they think about cooperation in the same way as humans do. In this study scientists presented the kea, a parrot endemic to New Zealand, with a series of tasks designed to assess cooperative cognition. They found that keas were capable of working together, even when they had to wait for their partner for up to 65 seconds. The keas also waited for a partner only when a partner was actually needed to gain food.

 

This is the first demonstration that any non-human animal can wait for over a minute for a cooperative partner, and the first conclusive evidence that any bird species can successful track when a cooperative partner is required, and when not. The keas did not attend to whether their partner could actually access the apparatus themselves, which may have been due to issues with task demands, but one kea did show a clear preference for working together with other individuals, rather than alone. This preference has been shown to be present in humans but absent in chimpanzees.

 

Taken together, these results provide the first evidence that a bird species can perform at a similar level to chimpanzees and elephants across a range of collaborative tasks. This raises the possibility that aspects of the cooperative cognition seen in the primate lineage have evolved convergently in birds.
