I am always surprised and puzzled by the world of systematic. Of course I know that it is very important to name another living creature. We need an inventory of life on Earth. We need to have common language. We need system to find out regularities. Etc… What is always surprise me – how fragile and, from my point of view, sometimes subjective the descriptive systematic looks like. I understand that those who spend years with microscopes can distinguish tiny differences between spec........ Read more »

The year 2012 was a perfect year for salt lake research. If one decide to organize travel map based on salt lakes mentioned during the year in research papers he or she should visit all six continents and hard to survive places such as deserts, mountains or even lake under the Antarctic ice sheet. I decided to repeat analysis of research activity similar to previous year.... Read more »

The fluctuation of water level affects the salt lake not only by changing the area or structure of habitats but also by changing the salinity of the water. The perfectly calculated proof of this statement entitled “An examination of the sensitivity of the Great Salt Lake to changes in inputs” was published by Ibrahim Mohammed and David Tarboton recently in Water Resources Research....

Enrique Bucher and Erio Curto from University of Cordoba monitored the breeding success of the Chilean flamingo (Phoenicoptarus chilensis) during the 1969–2010 period in Mar Chiquita. There were several interdependent parameters which were considered as important for breeding of flamingo – rainfall, water level, water salinity, variability of shoreline and offshore (islands) mudflats, presence of brine shrimp (Artemia franciscana), and presence of the Argentine silverside fish (Odont........

The paper I selected is not a breakthrough or provocative hypothesis. In spite of relatively high impact factor of journal I should say that the paper is rather basic. One might expect from the title (Algae as a sustainable energy … Continue reading →... Read more »
