One here, another one there

I came across this first article last week and thought I would post it (along with a couple of other nice feel good articles on some of our neighbors). The article and slide show is “Lost World of Fanged Frogs and Giant Rats Discovered in Papua New Guinea” over at the Guardian.

Next up, another slide show on “A Decade of New Species in the Himalayas” by Katherine Harmon at Scientific American.

Finally, this article actually came up first on the topic over at entitled “3 New Species Found in Underwater Cave in Canary Islands” by Zachary Shahan at EcoWorldly.

One person’s trash is…..still trash

Researchers are now beginning to dissect the trash of the great garbage patch. Here are a couple of articles and a recent interview on the topic.

The articles are “Great Pacifice Garbage Patch is Worse Than We Thought” by Ariel Schwartz at  Inhabitat and “A Trip to the Garbage Patch” by Rachel Ehrenberg at Science News.  

The interview is “Marcus Eriksen Describes Ocean Gyre of Plastic Garbage” by Beth Lebwohl at EarthSky.

Finally, I came across this article just the other day and thought what a great way to follow up on all the studies happening with the great garbage patch. Check out “Tagged-Trash Study Shows Where it Goes” by Phuong Le from the Associated Press via the San Francisco Chronicle.
