DNA tests reveal plant species thought to be extinct

Science
Jan. 8 (UPI) -- With the help of DNA testing, researchers at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis have rediscovered a plant species thought to be extinct.Dracaena umbraculifera was initially described in 1797. It was believed to be native to Mauritius, a small island in the Indian Ocean, 1,200 miles from the coast of southern Africa. After multiple attempts to locate the species on Mauritius, botanists declared the species extinct.Despite the declaration, D. umbraculifera continued to be cultivated at botanical gardens around the world.Researchers at the Missouri Botanical Garden set out to determine where the species truly originated and whether the species really was extinct in the wild. Scientists began by sequencing the species genome and comparing it to its closest relatives. Th...

August eclipse left a wake in ionosphere, researchers reveal

Science
Dec. 27 (UPI) -- The August 21 solar eclipse caused waves in the uppermost part of the atmosphere, the ionosphere, which researchers say they were able to observe for the first time.The eclipse across North America was seen by millions of people, as well as by 2,000 positioning sensors installed across its path on Earth by researchers of MIT's Haystack Observatory and Norway's University of Tromso.Data from the sensors confirmed what scientists believed, but could not confirm until now: the rapid cooling and heating of the ionosphere, the earth's upper atmosphere, caused by the interruption and return of the sun's rays, made V-shaped atmospheric waves similar to that of the bow of a boat traveling through water.In a paper published Tuesday in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, resea...

New maps reveal shrinking wilderness around the globe

Science
Dec. 12 (UPI) -- New maps reveal the scope of the challenge facing wilderness conservationists.As the new maps show, wilderness around the globe is shrinking -- increasingly hemmed in as forests are converted to farmland and development encroaches.Scientists with the Wildlife Conservation Society compiled the maps with the hope that they can assist the work of wildlife managers and conservationists around the world. Researchers published the maps this week in the journal Nature."Despite their importance, wilderness areas are being destroyed at an alarming rate and need urgent protection with almost 10 percent being lost since the early 1990s," James Allan, a doctoral student at Queensland University in Australia, said in a news release. "Their conservation is a global priority."Wilderness ...
