first_imgThe Antarctic biota has evolved over the last 100 million years in increasingly isolated and cold conditions. As a result, Antarctic species, from micro-organisms to vertebrates, have adapted to life at extremely low temperatures, including changes in the genome, physiology and ecological traits such as life history. Coupled with cycles of glaciation that have promoted speciation in the Antarctic, this has led to a unique biota in terms of biogeography, patterns of species distribution and endemism. Specialization in the Antarctic biota has led to trade-offs in many ecologically important functions and Antarctic species may have a limited capacity to adapt to present climate change. These include the direct effects of changes in environmental parameters and indirect effects of increased competition and predation resulting from altered life histories of Antarctic species and the impacts of invasive species. Ultimately, climate change may alter the responses of Antarctic ecosystems to harvesting from humans. The unique adaptations of Antarctic species mean that they provide unique models of molecular evolution in natural populations. The simplicity of Antarctic communities, especially from terrestrial systems, makes them ideal to investigate the ecological implications of climate change, which are difficult to identify in more complex systems.last_img read more

All flights are listed in local time. Reservations will be handled exclusively via Air Canada Vacations and their associated travel agencies.The vacation package and flight program follows several weeks of planning and a recent visit to the Minister of Tourism and International Transport, Senator Richard “Ricky” Skerritt by Shirley Lam, manager product development, and Sylvia Costa, manager destination services, of Air Canada Vacations.“The addition of this programme from Air Canada Vacations is very significant for St Kitts and Nevis,” said Skerritt.“Canada has always been a valuable source market for visitors and investors as well as home to a large contingent of our Diaspora. I am gratified that Air Canada Vacations is adding us to their list of partner destinations this coming winter and our government is working closely with our local hoteliers and other St Kitts and Nevis tourism stakeholders to make full use of this opportunity to strengthen our travel and tourism relationship with Canada,” he added.Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more

first_imgA mother is claiming that her infant became sick after injesting what she now believes was a container of baby formula that may have been filled with flour.The incident occurred last month in Phoenix, Arizona.According to Madeline Roque, she purchased the formula from her local Walmart but noticed her 9-month-old daughter developed a case of gas and began throwing up the formula.Roque says she didn’t notice that something was off until the second time she fed her daughter the formula and the samething happened.That time she dumped the formula out into the sink and realized that the consistency did not seem right.“When I poured the bottle in the sink and saw how it got, that’s when it hit me,” Roque told KPNX.Roque says she now believes someone may have swapped the baby formula out with flour.While the incident has not yet been confirmed, Walmart says they are now conducting their own investigation.Authorities in the area also reported that they have had several reports of people purchasing baby formula, swapping it out with flour and then returning it to the store for cash.last_img read more
