Researchers from a Swiss university found plastic particulate is widespread in Lake Geneva, according to a press release from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
The researchers sampled the lake in several ways to quantify microplastic pollution. Every sample taken for the study, whether from bird droppings, fish dissection, beach combing or a net drag had plastic particles in it.
No quantity of just how much plastic is in the lake was given in the release. Further studies will evaluate plastic content of lakes and rivers across Switzerland.Read More
When pigs get out of their pens, they can really tear up a landscape. Five million pigs in 39 states can tear up a lot of landscape.
“They’re one of the top 100 invasive species in the world. Anywhere wild pigs are not natural and they show up, they do a lot of damage to other species,” said Dwayne Etter, a research specialist with Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources and a part of a research team that tested a new feral swine monitoring technique that uses environmental DNA.
Environmental DNA (eDNA) is genetic material organisms lose in the environment. If a pig crosses a creek or defecates in it, a researcher, in theory, should be able to pull that DNA out of the water further downstream.Read More
Since its population bottomed out, the federally-endangered Piping Plover in the Great Lakes has made a comeback for the ages.
A population that once measured approximately 17 pairs and rebounded, hitting 76 pairs in 2017. The same year that count was made, the plovers had also returned to Gull Point, a nesting location that hadn’t been used in more than 60 years.
In an effort to understand some of the conditions that have allowed this species to return to its habitat, researchers have directed their attention toward a curious instrument for help.
A buoy that floats off the coast of Presque Isle State Park , near where Gull Point is located.Read More
