New study pinpoints birds of prey as hardest hit by wind farms

31 Oct 2017  | BirdLife A new study has revealed which bird and bat species are most at risk of collision with wind turbines, with birds of prey and migratory birds coming top of the list. This research is the first to take a global view of the problem, and pinpoints some possible solutions to … Continue reading New study pinpoints birds of prey as hardest hit by wind farms

Seismic vibrations cause Diplocardia earthworms to emerge from the soil

Grunting for worms: seismic vibrations cause Diplocardia earthworms to emerge from the soil O. Mitra,1 M.A. Callaham, Jr,2 M.L. Smith,1 and J.E. Yack1,* ABSTRACT Harvesting earthworms by a practice called ‘worm grunting’ is a widespread and profitable business in the southeastern USA. Although a variety of techniques are used, most involve rhythmically scraping a wooden … Continue reading Seismic vibrations cause Diplocardia earthworms to emerge from the soil
