Panaji: The four hinterland talukas of Goa, partly in the range and partly in the foothills of Sahyadris account for 93% of the state's total forest cover of 1,225.12 sq km.

ALBANIA, Colombia – Coal miner Cerrejon has financed the reforestation of a large swath of land in northern Colombia that was left desolate by decades of mining activity.

Luanda — Without any vote against and two abstentions, the National Assembly approved on Wednesday the Draft Law on Wildlife to ensure the conservation and sustainable use of forest areas and the A

The locally migratory behavior of the high arctic muskox (Ovibos muschatus) is a central component of the breeding and winter survival strategies applied to cope with the highly seasonal arctic climate. However, altered climate regimes affecting plant growth are likely to affect local migration dynamics of the muskox. In this study, we apply long-term local-scale data on the seasonal distribution of muskoxen in the Zackenberg Valley, Northeast Greenland, to assess the degree of climatic influence on local seasonal muskox dynamics.

KOLKATA: Rampant practice of prawn seed catching along the rivers of Sundarban archipelago is not only damaging the marine ecosystem but also endangering the stability of embankments, says a new bo

The earth is warming at an alarming rate, especially in the Arctic, where a marked decline in sea ice cover may have far-ranging consequences for endemic species. Little auks, endemic Arctic seabirds, are key bioindicators as they forage in the marginal ice zone and feed preferentially on lipid-rich Arctic copepods and ice-associated amphipods sensitive to the consequences of global warming. We tested how little auks cope with an ice-free foraging environment during the breeding season.

Manipur Forest department has embarked on a major campaign to save forest and its wealth and as an endeavour to make the state green, DM College and Khuman Lampak Sports complex will be converted

These countries also tend to have weak national governance, poorer rule of law, and different cultural values than richer temperate countries that spend more on conservation, a new study has found.

Older than the Himalaya mountains, the mountain chain of the Western Ghats are well known for their rich and unique flora and fauna.

Habitat loss, overexploitation, and numerous other stressors have caused global declines in apex predators. This “trophic downgrading” has generated widespread concern because of the fundamental role that apex predators can play in ecosystem functioning, disease regulation, and biodiversity maintenance. In attempts to combat declines, managers have conducted reintroductions, imposed stricter harvest regulations, and implemented protected areas. We suggest that full recovery of viable apex predator populations is currently the exception rather than the rule.
