Fruit scent as an evolved signal to primate seed dispersal - Science Advances

Sunday, March 3, 2019

Ficus) to identify those that are ripe (17). Two studies compared bat-dispersed figs to those that rely on birds, which tend to be more vision- and less olfaction-oriented because of their excellent color vision. Figs of species that rely on bats produce more scent (5) and, in a model system of three species, only bat-dispersed species show a significant change in fruit scent upon ripeness (18). Another set of studies on a small model system indicated that, in the Neotropics, only primate-dispersed fruits show a shift in their scent profiles upon ripeness (19) and that primates can use the scent of ripe fruits to identify them (20). However, these works were limited to small model systems or focused on a single genus. Thus, the question whether fruit scent can be considered an evolved signal to facilitate the communication between plants and animals remains open.Here, we examine whether fruit scent evolved as a signal to seed dispersers in 30 plant species of 15 families in Ranomafana National Park, Madagascar. As a group, the most important seed dispersers in Madagascar are the endemic lemurs (21). Contrary to most other tro...

Germany's 16 states: Baden-Württemberg | DW Travel - DW (English)

Sunday, March 3, 2019

The gothic cathedral and the pretty old town center alleyways are definitely worth a visit. Enjoy a choice of numerous cafes and pubs offering excellent food. Recent environmental protection projects have also earned the city the title of being the German capital for ecological friendliness. 10 reasons to love Baden-Württemberg The Feldberg, a favorite among tourists The Black Forest, with some 20 million overnight stays every year, is Baden-Württemberg's most visited region. Its highest peak, the Feldberg, is 1,500 meters (almost a mile) high. It is also home to Baden-Württemberg's biggest nature reserve. 250,000 tourists flock to this spa area annually. It offers something for all seasons, from hiking to skiing. 10 reasons to love Baden-Württemberg The cuckoo clock is the souvenir of choice This has become a symbol for both Baden-Württemberg and the Black Forest: the cuckoo clock. It still has the same traditional design as it did in the mid 19th century. You can find the biggest examples of these clocks in the towns of Schonach and Triberg, where they reach over 15 meters (about 50 feet). The Black Forest cuckoo clock remains a popular tourist souvenir. 10 reasons to love Baden-Württemberg Heidelberg and its romantic charm Many artists have immortalized this city, among them Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Mark Twain. The Heidelberg Castle is the landmark of the town. What once served as the residence of rulers still towers above the old town center and the Neckar river. Heidelberg University has also left its mark on the city. Founded 630 years ago, it is the oldest university in present day Germany. 10 reasons to love Baden-Württemberg Back to nature in the Rheinau wetlands Baden-Württemberg's Rheinau wetlands offer floodplain forests, vast meadows and a network of intertwined river arms, where the Rhine still flows unrestrained through nature. The ever changing water level is the life blood of the floodplains, benefitting rare animal and plant species. These are best seen from a flat barge, a boat used by local fishermen to navigate the ancient Rhine tributaries. 10 reasons to love Baden-Württemberg Steeped in history: Hohenz...

A guide to the best exotic marigolds - Financial Times

Saturday, December 8, 2018

No marigold can match that.Whatever the result of the years voting, I have my personal winners. Even in this dry year, Marigold Konstance has been excellent. It spans the best of two worlds, being a cross between the African and the French marigold and persisting in flower from early summer until late autumn. The double flowers are a fine shade of mahogany red-orange with contrasting yellow and the height of each plant is about 12 inches. I like the shape, vigour and impact of this excellent plant and am using it in arty containers as well as in beds. The seed is sold by Thompson & Morgan, its introducers.Konstance © Thompson & MorganThe African members of the family are mostly taller and flatter-flowered, or so I believed until studying the Africans on trial. Big, flat-headed African varieties may now be only eight inches high, the best known being the Sunspot series, with flowers in yellow and orange. They do not appeal to me and the existence of another 20 varieties, hitherto unknown, with a similar profile is not going to change my mind. The flower heads are too heavy to look plausible so near to the ground.Better Africans by far are a vivid orange and a tall, fluffy-flowered mixture. The orange is Kees Orange, a Dutch-bred variety whose seeds are available only from Mr Fothergills. The colour is a deep shade of orange, unusually clear and not tending to mere gold. It grows to about two feet and, if cleverly placed, it is spectacular. Kees Orange © Sarah Cuttle/GAPMy favourite African mix is Fantastic Mix from Suttons Seeds, a mix of yellows and oranges whose flowers are not flat but fluffy, like a good chrysanthemums. They grow quickly up to two and a half feet and their dark green leaves set off the flowers colour very prettily.Among French varieties, I like flat-faced Durango Bee with a blend of russet orange and yellow, and I give a personal prize to small-flowered Paprika, whose red-orange little flowers are centred with a good yellow. Seeds of Paprika are offered by Plant World in Devon which recommends sowing them directly into the open ground in April, a great way of saving time and expense in a greenhouse.img alt role="presentation" class="n-image" srcset="

Suspect in Bulgarian journalist slaying arrested in Germany

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Wednesday. Bulgaria's prosecutor general, Sotir Tsatsarov, confirmed the arrest of Severin Krassimirov, a 21-year-old Bulgarian citizen. Prosecutors in the northwestern German state of Lower Saxony said the suspect was arrested Tuesday evening outside the city of Hamburg on a European arrest warrant. Prosecutors will examine whether he can be extradited and apply to have him held in formal custody. Bulgarian Interior Minister MladenMarinov said investigators had found DNA evidence on the clothes and body of Viktoria Marinova, who was raped and strangled on Saturday in the northern town of Ruse. Bulgarian media reported that Krassimirov's mother lives in Germany. The Interior Ministry said that he left Bulgaria early Saturday afternoon, crossing the bridge at Ruse over the Danube into Romania. There is physical evidence to link to the murder,Marinov said. He said Krassimirov, a resident of Ruse, had a criminal record for scrap metal theft. The minister said investigators had spoken to Marinova's family and friends and there is no apparent link to her work. Tsatsarov said the evidence suggested it was a spontaneous attack, not premeditated. However, he added that investigators were examining all possible lines of investigation. Prime Minister Boyko Borissov offered condolences to her family and thanked investigators for their work. However, he said he would withdraw his support for a German member of the European Parliament, Manfred Weber, a leading candidate to become the next head of the European Commission, because of tweets he made associating the death of Marinova with those of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia and Slovak journalist Jan Kuci...

German authorities take aim at far-right party's youth wing

Thursday, September 13, 2018

Constitution and observe them accordingly." Authorities in northern Germany's Bremen and Lower Saxony said Monday they have begun monitoring the party's youth wings in the two states. Boris Pistorius, Lower Saxony's interior minister, said the decision to keep an eye on the AfD's local youth wing, was unrelated to the recent events in Chemnitz. It was based on Young Alternative's anti-democratic goals and links to the Identitarian Movement, a white nationalist group that has been under state surveillance for four years, Pistorius said. His counterpart in Bremen, Ulrich Maeurer, described the views of AfD's youth wing in the city-state as "pure racism." While Germany's top security official, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, said over the weekend that the party as a whole didn't merit surveillance, the monitoring of its youth wings at the state level was a significant step. Some members of the Left party, which describes its position as democratic socialist, also are subject to surveillance. AfD immediately announced that it would dissolve the two youth sections in question to avert harm to the party and insisted its aims were democratic. Andreas Kalbitz , a member of the party's national leadership, accused other political parties of panicking in the face of AfD's electoral success. AfD's rise since its founding five years ago has shaken Germany's establishment and called into question the country's post-World War II consensus that far-right parties have no place in the mainstream.

Ms. Weigel’s sense of insecurity was reinforced by a widely publicized study showing that the number of reported crimes in the state of Lower Saxony had risen by more than 10 percent over the past two years and that the increase could be attributed overwhelmingly to cases involving refugees. #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-box .g-artboard { margin:0 auto; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-box .g-artboard p { margin:0; } .g-aiAbs { position:absolute; } .g-aiImg { display:block; width:100% !important; } .g-aiPointText p { white-space: nowrap; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 { position:relative; overflow:hidden; width:300px; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 p { font-family:nyt-franklin,arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-weight:500; font-size:14px; line-height:16px; height:auto; filter:alpha(opacity=100); -ms-filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=100); opacity:1; mix-blend-mode:normal; letter-spacing:0.125em; text-align:left; color:rgb(0,0,0); text-transform:none; padding-bottom:0; padding-top:0; font-style:normal; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 .g-pstyle0 { font-size:10px; line-height:11px; height:11px; mix-blend-mode:multiply; text-align:center; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 .g-pstyle1 { font-style:italic; font-size:11px; line-height:13px; height:13px; mix-blend-mode:multiply; letter-spacing:0.05em; text-align:center; color:rgb(98,140,178); } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 .g-pstyle2 { font-size:15px; line-height:18px; height:18px; mix-blend-mode:multiply; text-align:center; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 .g-pstyle3 { font-style:italic; font-size:12px; line-height:14px; height:14px; mix-blend-mode:multiply; letter-spacing:0em; text-transform:uppercase; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 .g-pstyle4 { height:16px; mix-blend-mode:multiply; text-align:center; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 .g-pstyle5 { font-size:12px; line-height:14px; height:14px; mix-blend-mode:multiply; letter-spacing:0em; text-align:right; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 .g-pstyle6 { font-size:12px; line-height:14px; height:14px; mix-blend-mode:multiply; letter-spacing:0em; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 .g-pstyle7 { font-weight:700; font-size:15px; line-height:18px; height:18px; mix-blend-mode:multiply; letter-spacing:0.02em; } #g-0116-for-web-MURDERmap-300 .g-pstyle8 { font-style:italic; font-size:12px; line-height:14px; height:14px; mix-blend-mode:multiply; letter-spacing:0em; text-align:center; text-transform:uppercase; } img id="g-0...
