Hippo Dung Revealed As Important Food Source In African Rivers

Few studies have looked at the effects hippos have on the water quality of streams. And the reason is simple: Studying near hippos isn’t safe. “It’s an ornery animal to work with,” said Doug McCauley, assistant professor of ecology, evolution and marine biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, who just completed a study measuring the effects of hippo dung on the ecosystem of an African river. “When you’re sampling in a stream with salmon, there’s no threat that a salmon would bite you in half.” But for studies near gigantic hippos, the threat of danger is very real.

Plankton Portal enlists public to classify thousands of zooplankton images

Zooplankton drifts through the ocean, often ignored by the public in favor of more charismatic marine organisms farther up the food chain. A new crowdsourced project aims to change that, giving anyone a closer look at small and intricate zooplankton. PlanktonPortal.org features 900,000 high resolution images of zooplankton and tasks the public to identify them as part of data processing for a collaborative study, based out of the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. Researchers hope the project will tell them more about zooplankton behavior, grouping and interaction.

Seeking an Elegant, Affordable Solution to Contamination

Dr. Charley Liberko of Cornell College's Department of Chemistry has an idea he's working to bring to fruition. “Imagine a remote village in an underdeveloped country whose only source of water is a stream contaminated with toxic levels of metal ions such as cadmium and nickel,” states Dr. Liberko. “The villagers take locally available woody plant material, soak it in potash, and heat it up for several days until the wood partially decomposes. They then filter their water through this material to remove the metal ions. When they are done with it, they put the material in a clay pot and heat it up even hotter until the organic matter decomposes completely, leaving the metal ion salts as a residue, safely in the clay pot.
