“This is far more than just being about losing the wonders of nature, desperately sad though that is,” he said. “This is actually now jeopardising the future of people. Nature is not a ‘nice to have’ – it is our life-support system.”

Kao uvod u neki film katastrofe ili kakav palp roman:

Ancient life awakens amid thawing ice caps and permafrost

Mislim, za sada je to mahovina, ali... u šta će izrasti?

U život koji će se s teškoćama takmičiti sa ostatkom sveta i 100000 godina evolucije.

Ne da će banane kao takve skroz nestati, ali ova situacija sa gljivičnim oboljenjem koje zatire najpopularniji komercijalni soj banane je dobro podsećanje na to šta dobijate kada smanjite biodiverzitet u ime, jelte, bolje zarade:

The banana is one step closer to disappearing

Scientists discover the first-known animal that doesn't need oxygen to survive
 
Quote

The study, published Tuesday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that the parasite Henneguya salminicola does not require aerobic respiration in order to survive — a revelation that may change how we understand life on Earth and beyond.

The Anglerfish Deleted Its Immune System to Fuse With Its Mate

Quote
There are few animals more bizarre than the anglerfish, a species that has so much trouble finding a mate that when the male and female do connect underwater, males actually  fuse their tissue with the females for life. After the merger, the two share a single respiratory and digestive system.
Now scientists have discovered that the anglerfish accomplishes this sexual parasitism because it has lost a key part of its immune system, which then allows two bodies to become one without tissue rejection. (Remember symbiont Jadzia Dax of Deep Space Nine?)
