Species Biodiversity Changing, Not Declining From Global Warming
2014-05-14 12:53:57

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While some studies have come to the conclusion that global warming is threatening to cause extinctions and lower the biodiversity of ecosystems, a new report published in the journal Science has found that a changing climate isn’t lowering biodiversity – but it is creating new mixes of species within various ecosystems. The new report reviewed 100 long-term monitoring research studies executed around the world – in both marine...

Water Pollution
2013-03-25 12:43:15

Water pollution is the contamination of bodies of water including rivers, oceans, lakes, aquifers and groundwater. Water pollution is when pollutants are discharged directly or indirectly into a body of water without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds. Water pollution affects the plants and organisms that reside in these bodies of water. In almost all of the cases the effect is damaging not only to individual species and populations, but to the natural biological communities as...
