Positive effects of gullies for bird-mediated seed dispersal and spontaneous reforestation in a degraded semi-arid landscape. New research shows how fungi spread quickly between closely packed plants of the same species, preventing them from dominating and enabling a wider range of species to flourish. “When we think about the diversity of tropical rainforests, we often focus on plant or insect species—paying little attention to the microscopic fungi and other microbes living in and on everything,” says Rachel Gallery, assistant professor of microbial ecology in the University of Arizona’s who did part of the research as a postdoc under Owen Lewis of Oxford University, the leader of the research project. “Our study is the first tropical experimental test of the long-standing hypothesis that plant pests can drive plant community diversity through their disproportionately negative effects on locally abundant plant species,” she says. “In the plant world, close relatives make bad neighbors,” Lewis says. “Seedlings growing near plants of the same species are more likely to die, and we now know why.

When it comes to the world’s forests, two of the commonly asked questions are “How many trees are are on Earth?” and “How many trees are cut down each year?” A new study proposes answers: three trillion and 15.3 billion. The research, published today in the journal Nature, is based on a combination of satellite imagery, on-the-ground inventories, and computer modeling led by Thomas Crowther of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology Life Magazine, November 6, 1939, Vol. 7, No. 19.

Consequently these soils have in most cases been in contact with, and include rock fragments, and other soils from up-slope layers richer in nutrients. In the bottoms of stream valleys and ravines they may also benefit from deposits of alluvium (stream deposited sediments), which frequently bear nutrient-rich material from up-stream download The Social Life of Trees: Anthropological Perspectives on Tree Symbolism (Materializing Culture) pdf. Such tactics are most effective against birds, and the display often consists of highly realistic eye-like markings that are revealed suddenly when the insect is discovered. By resembling the eyes of a predatory civet or snake, the moth can startle the prey momentarily, giving itself enough time to escape. Although eye-like markings are not exclusive to the rain forest they are particularly elaborate here Rainforest (MIT Press).
