Dense populations of a giant sulfur bacterium in Namibian shelf sediments. (1/112)

A previously unknown giant sulfur bacterium is abundant in sediments underlying the oxygen minimum zone of the Benguela Current upwelling system. The bacterium has a spherical cell that exceeds by up to 100-fold the biovolume of the largest known prokaryotes. On the basis of 16S ribosomal DNA sequence data, these bacteria are closely related to the marine filamentous sulfur bacteria Thioploca, abundant in the upwelling area off Chile and Peru. Similar to Thioploca, the giant bacteria oxidize sulfide with nitrate that is accumulated to +info)

Transmission dynamics of tuberculosis in a high-incidence country: prospective analysis by PCR DNA fingerprinting. (2/112)

We have prospectively analyzed the DNA fingerprints of Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains from a random sample of patients with newly diagnosed tuberculosis in Windhoek, Namibia. Strains from 263 smear-positive patients in whom tuberculosis was diagnosed during 1 year were evaluated, and the results were correlated with selected epidemiological and clinical data. A total of 163 different IS6110 fingerprint patterns were observed among the 263 isolates. Isolates from a high percentage of patients (47%) were found in 29 separate clusters, with a cluster defined as isolates with 100% matching patterns. The largest cluster included isolates from 39 patients. One predominant strain of M. tuberculosis caused 15% of cases of smear-positive pulmonary tuberculosis in Windhoek. That strain was also prevalent in the north of the country, suggesting that in contrast to other African countries with isolates with high levels of diversity in their DNA fingerprint patterns, only a restricted number of different strains significantly contribute to the tuberculosis problem in Namibia.  (+info)

Prevalence of hepatitis C virus antibodies and genotypes in asymptomatic, first-time blood donors in Namibia. (3/112)

Reported is the prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in Namibia as determined using a third-generation enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) on samples of blood collected from all asymptomatic, first-time blood donors between 1 February and 31 July 1997 (n = 1941). The HCV seroprevalence was 0.9% (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.5-1.5%) and no associations were detected between a positive HCV serostatus and the person's sex, region of residence, or previous hepatitis B exposure or hepatitis B carrier status, as determined by hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg). The only significant association in a logistic regression model was an increase in HCV positivity with increasing age (P = 0.04). Viral RNA was amplified from 2 out of 18 (11.1%) specimens that were ELISA positive. Genotyping of these specimens, by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP), showed the presence of genotypes 5 and 1a. The positive predictive value of using HBsAg positivity as a surrogate screening marker for HCV in Namibian blood donors was poor (1.6%), with low sensitivity (16.7%) and specificity (89.3%), and detecting only 3 out of 18 serologically HCV-positive specimens. The results of this first study of the prevalence and epidemiology of HCV infection in Namibia suggest that donor blood should be screened for HCV by ELISA in order to prevent the transmission of hepatitis C virus.  (+info)

Isotopes, ice ages, and terminal Proterozoic earth history. (4/112)

Detailed correlations of ancient glacial deposits, based on temporal records of carbon and strontium isotopes in seawater, indicate four (and perhaps five) discrete ice ages in the terminal Proterozoic Eon. The close and repeated stratigraphic relationship between C-isotopic excursions and glaciogenic rocks suggests that unusually high rates of organic carbon burial facilitated glaciation by reducing atmospheric greenhouse capacity. The emerging framework of time and environmental change contributes to the improved resolution of stratigraphic and evolutionary pattern in the early fossil record of animals.  (+info)

Upwelling intensification as part of the Pliocene-Pleistocene climate transition. (5/112)

A deep-sea sediment core underlying the Benguela upwelling system off southwest Africa provides a continuous time series of sea surface temperature (SST) for the past 4.5 million years. Our results indicate that temperatures in the region have declined by about 10 degrees C since 3.2 million years ago. Records of paleoproductivity suggest that this cooling was associated with an increase in wind-driven upwelling tied to a shift from relatively stable global warmth during the mid-Pliocene to the high-amplitude glacial-interglacial cycles of the late Quaternary. These observations imply that Atlantic Ocean surface water circulation was radically different during the mid-Pliocene.  (+info)

An outbreak of hepatitis E in Northern Namibia, 1983. (6/112)

In 1983 in Namibia's Kavango region, epidemic jaundice affected hundreds of people living in settlements lacking potable water and waste disposal facilities. Many were Angolan refugees. The disease, which after investigation was designated non-A non-B hepatitis, was most common in males (72%), in persons aged 15-39 years, and was usually mild except in pregnant women, who incurred 6 (86%) of the 7 fatal infections. Fifteen years later, archived outbreak-associated samples were analyzed. Hepatitis E virus (HEV) was detected by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction in feces from 9 of 16 patients tested. Total Ig and IgM to HEV were quantitated in serum from 24 residents of an affected settlement at the outbreak's end: 42% had IgM diagnostic of recent infection and 25% had elevated total Ig without IgM, consistent with past HEV infection. The Namibia outbreak was typical hepatitis E clinically and epidemiologically. This first report of hepatitis E confirmed by virus detection from southern Africa extends the known range of HEV and highlights its risk for refugees.  (+info)

Mantophasmatodea: a new insect order with extant members in the Afrotropics. (7/112)

A new insect order, Mantophasmatodea, is described on the basis of museum specimens of a new genus with two species: Mantophasma zephyra gen. et sp. nov. (one female from Namibia) and M. subsolana sp. nov. (one male from Tanzania). This is the first time since 1914 that a newly described extant insect taxon has proved unplaceable within a recognized order. Mantophasmatodeans are apterous carnivores. Their closest phylogenetic relationships may be to Grylloblattodea (ice-crawlers) and/or Phasmatodea (stick insects), but the morphological evidence is ambiguous. Raptophasma Zompro from Baltic amber is assigned to the Mantophasmatodea, revealing a wider previous range for the lineage.  (+info)

Proterozoic modular biomineralized metazoan from the Nama Group, Namibia. (8/112)

We describe a Proterozoic, fully biomineralized metazoan from the Omkyk Member (approximately 549 million years before the present) of the northern Nama Group, Namibia. Namapoikia rietoogensis gen. et sp. nov. is up to 1 meter in diameter and bears a complex and robust biomineralized skeleton; it probably represents a cnidarian or poriferan. Namapoikia encrusts perpendicular to the walls of vertical synsedimentary fissures in microbial reefs. This finding implies that large, modular metazoans with biologically controlled mineralization appeared some 15 million years earlier than previously documented.  (+info)

Walvis Bay, Namibia - ESI-AFRICA.COM - 07 November 2011 - President Pohamba of Namibia has appealed to the countrys electricity utility NamPower to do everything in its power to explore alternative sources of energy in an effort to counter the power shortfall in Namibia. Officially launching generator number three at the new US$44 million Anixas power station, he said Namibias total power needs currently peaked at 393 megawatts (MW), and that the coming on stream of Anixas was a step in the right direction, as Namibia sought to cut down on electricity imports, mainly from South Africa. The new plant will provide additional 22.5MW to the national grid in case of emergency and during peak demand. Other main sources of electricity generation in Namibia are the Ruacana hydro electric power station (240MW), the Van Eck coal power plant in Windhoek (120MW) and the Walvis Bay Paratus diesel power station (18.5MW). Namibias current electricity demand is estimated at 550MW. The development of local ...
Windhoek. Namibia will leave its first footprint among those of the major world-class players in the beef export trade within the next month when official exports of Namibian beef by Meatco to the USA commence.. Manager of corporate affairs at Meatco Rosa Tobias yesterday told New Era that September 12 marked the day of implementation, when Namibia can start exporting meat into the USA market.. Meatco is looking forward to this exciting milestone that will put Namibia on par with other major world-class players in the beef trade, and Meatco is more than geared up for the task ahead, which should result in the actual exports taking place within the next month, she noted.. Meatco Namibia joined the application process to export meat into that market in 2002 when the government of Namibia requested approval to export meat (beef) products to the United States.. Namibia stated that - if approved - its immediate intent was to export boneless raw beef products, such as primal cuts, chuck, blade and ...

The economy is heavily dependent on the extraction and processing of minerals for export. Mining accounts for 20% of GDP. Rich alluvial diamond deposits make Namibia a primary source for gem-quality diamonds. Namibia is the fourth-largest exporter of nonfuel minerals in Africa, the world´s fifth-largest producer of uranium, and the producer of large quantities of lead, zinc, tin, silver, and tungsten. The mining sector employs only about 3% of the population while about half of the population depends on subsistence agriculture for its livelihood. Namibia normally imports about 50% of its cereal requirements; in drought years food shortages are a major problem in rural areas. A high per capita GDP, relative to the region, hides the world´s worst inequality of income distribution. The Namibian economy is closely linked to South Africa with the Namibian dollar pegged one-to-one to the South African rand. Privatization of several enterprises in coming years may stimulate long-run foreign ...

The comments argue that the FSIS does not explain how it will prevent diseases like Rift Valley fever or Namibias other endemic foreign animal diseases, foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), from entering the United States. The comments point to evidence showing that a section of the veterinary fence that is supposed to restrict FMD outbreaks to Namibias northern region has been taken down by authorities to provide elephants and buffaloes more access to range. Further, the comments raise concerns about Namibias own import practices of importing both cattle and beef from countries not free of FMD ...

Discussion. The game farming industry is important for the Namibian economy and encourages tourism through hunting safaris and trophy hunting expeditions. Kudu comprise a large portion of the game farming industry in Namibia and also come into contact with several domestic species. Thus the prevalence of BVDV in kudu may pose a threat to the cattle farming industry in Namibia and neighbouring countries.. BVDV serology results showed a high seropositivity (68%) amongst all samples (kudu and eland). In this study, BVDV seropositivity of kudu in Namibia was determined to be 71% (27/38), which was similar to previous studies in Namibia (Depner et al. 1991; Soiné et al. 1992). For the South African samples, a seroprevalence of 71% (5/7) was observed. As no other study regarding the seroprevalence of BVDV in kudu in South Africa has been performed, these results can be compared only with those from other countries in the southern African region, such as Namibia (66%) (Depner et al 1991; Soiné et al. ...
Author Summary Anthrax, the disease caused by Bacillus anthracis, is a neglected zoonotic diseases in the context of its impact on poor rural and periurban communities in Africa and other less developed areas of the world. Several regions of Namibia, the Etosha National Park in particular, are well known as being endemic areas for anthrax and, together, provide a good model for the investigation of the genetic diversity of B. anthracis circulating in livestock, wildlife and humans, and surrounding environments. The application of modern molecular strain typing techniques to the analysis of genotypic diversity, as it relates to the spatial and temporal distribution of B. anthracis strains in Namibia, is described in this paper. In particular, we demonstrate how it is possible to distinguish outbreaks of the disease caused by different strains from those caused by the spread of a single strain, to trace an outbreak strain back to its possible origin, and to track the routes of transmission of an outbreak

Tswana. The Coloureds and Basters share similar genealogical origins and cultural attributes (such as home language) but nonetheless maintain distinctly separate communal identities, as do most white Namibians and black Namibians, respectively.. The Ovambo make up about half of Namibias people. The Ovambo, Kavango, and East Caprivian peoples, who occupy the relatively well-watered and wooded northern part of the country, are settled farmers and herders. Historically, they have shown little interest in the central and southern parts of Namibia, where conditions do not suit their traditional way of life.. Until the early 1900s, these tribes had little contact with the Nama, Damara, and Herero, who roamed the central part of the country vying for control of sparse pastureland. German colonial rule destroyed the warmaking ability of the tribes but did not erase their identities or traditional organization. People from the more populous north have settled throughout the country in recent decades as ...

This collective understanding will enable coordination among all entities working towards achieving the SDGs. The ...
LM & Others v Government of Namibia is a legal case regarding coerced sterilisation of three women. The woman argued they had not properly consented to sterilization due to not being informed of the contents of the consent form, not understanding the medical staff, or coercion by being told their Caesareans would not be performed unless they consented to the sterilization. All the women were HIV-positive and believe they were targeted for sterilization based on this. In 2012, the Namibian High Court held that the women had been coercively sterilised. On appeal, the Supreme Court of Namibia upheld the High Court decision on 3 November 2014. The three women applicants had been sterilised at a public hospital when giving birth via Caesarean section. The women argued that any purported consent to the sterilisation had been coerced as they had either not been told the contents of the consent forms they were signing, did not understand the medical staff, or had been told by doctors that their ...
As Namibia moves into its third decade of independence, early optimism regarding the country`s ability to rapidly overcome the legacy of apartheid has been tempered by serious concern that the needs and expectations of a substantial portion of the population are not being met. With a continuing unemployment rate of over 37 percent and only one-fifth of the 20,000 Namibian graduates each year finding jobs, the Government of the Republic of Namibia (GRN) is vigorously seeking ways to accelerate income growth and job creation.

Supreme court upholds judgment from 2012 that health workers coerced three HIV positive mothers to consent to prodedure.. Namibias Supreme Court has upheld a ruling that health workers sterilised HIV-positive women without their consent.. The original 2012 judgment had found that health workers had coerced three HIV-positive mothers to sign sterilisation consent forms they did not fully understand, while in labour.. The Southern Africa Litigation Centre said the ruling sends a message to the government to stop the practice in the southwestern African nation, and elsewhere on the continent.. Priti Patel, deputy director and HIV programme manager for the centre, told Al Jazeera the case was far from isolated..

The government needs to take active steps to make sure this stops happening.. This decision has far-reaching consequences not only for ...
Rift Valley fever (RVF) is a peracute or acute disease of domestic ruminants and humans in sub-Saharan Africa, caused by a mosquito-borne virus. It is a high priority pathogen because of its potential to cause severe economic harm to the livestock industry and to cause life threatening haemorrhagic disease in humans. The disease was first recorded in southern Africa when a large epidemic occurred in the South Africa in 1950, and the first recorded outbreak in Namibia was in 1957. Since then, occasional large epidemics have occurred in southern Africa, with long interepidemic periods. The epidemiology of RVF is complex and many questions regarding the movements of the virus and its survival during the interepidemic period remain unanswered. The aim of this study was to compile a comprehensive description of the history of RVF in Namibia and to describe its epidemiological characteristics. This was accomplished using information available in the scientific literature, annual reports, disease ...
1. Introduction. Namibia has 415 MW of installed generation capacity shared among four conventional power plants (Ruacana hydropower station, Van Eck coal-fired plant, Anixas and Paratus diesel plants) (Nampower, 2011a). This power system is ageing, inefficient and insufficient. Consequently, the national power utility, Nampower, relies on imports (e.g. 60% in 2010) from the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) to secure the electricity supply. However, a growth in electricity demand estimated at 4% and the expiry of the import agreement with Zimbabwe in 2013 will expose Namibia to electricity shortage. Nampower forecasts a power supply deficit of 80 MW by the end of 2012, increasing to 300 MW by 2015. Thus, a revision of the current system as well as new power plant procurements, are necessary. In this context, conventional energy technologies are particularly considered since they are less capital intensive. For example, Nampower is currently studying the feasibility of a new 150 to 300 MW ...
Consignments containing poultry products packed in their final packaging on or after March 19 will be refused entry into Namibia, a statement from the agriculture ministry said.. However imports of poultry and their products in transit through South Africa from other countries not affected by the avian influenza outbreak will be allowed, the ministry said.. Last month, neighbouring Botswana also banned the import of domesticated and wild birds from South Africa due to the outbreak of avian influenza.. After an outbreak of the highly pathogenic H5N8 strain of avian flu in 2017, which saw poultry farmers culling millions of birds, neighbouring countries including Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana banned poultry imports from South Africa.The H5N8 strain of avian influenza is highly pathogenic among fowl but poses little risk to human health. - Reuters. ...

14 June 2013 - NamPower says that results of a pre-feasibility study on the use of biomass for power generation in the country are promising and it has given the go-ahead to continue with a full-scale feasibility study while also investigating the feasibility of a hybrid biomass concentrated solar power (CSP) plant.. The Namibia Economist reports that the study by NamPower has been two years in the undertaking. It reports that when NamPower went to tender for the study in 2011, Robert Schultz from the Desert Research Foundation, an organisation that runs a 250 kW biomass power plant near Outjo, said there is capacity to run as many as 240 decentralised distribution-embedded biomass power plants across Namibia.. Standing biomass resources are estimated at over 260 million tonnes, he said. Van Eck probably needs about 100,000 tonnes of biomass fuel a year if running for three months per year and if you divide the available resources it gives you about 2,600 years of available fuel. This is of ...

Saint Helena is a British Overseas Territory consisting of Saint Helena and Ascension Islands, and the island group of Tristan da Cunha. Saint Helena: Uninhabited when first discovered by the Portuguese in 1502, Saint Helena was garrisoned by the British during the 17th century. It acquired fame as the place of Napoleon BONAPARTEs exile from 1815 until his death in 1821, but its importance as a port of call declined after the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. During the Anglo-Boer War in South Africa, several thousand Boer prisoners were confined on the island between 1900 and 1903.; Saint Helena is one of the most remote populated places in the world. The British Government committed to building an airport on Saint Helena in 2005. After more than a decade of delays and construction, a commercial air service to South Africa via Namibia was inaugurated in October of 2017. The weekly service to Saint Helena from Johannesburg via Windhoek in Namibia takes just over six hours (including the ...

Large baobabs are regarded as key plant species in the savannah biome. In this study their role in shaping the avian community has been evaluated. The territory mapping method has been employed to quantify the avian breeding community in the town Outapi (ca. 130 ha), Northern Namibia, well-endowed with large baobabs. A total of 29 breeding bird species were recorded. The alien House Sparrow was by far the most numerous species comprising 48.4% of all breeding birds. The Blue Waxbill and African Palm Swift were also classified as dominant species, comprising together 17.4%. Granivores were by far the most numerous feeding guild, comprising 77.2% of all birds breeding, while the insectivores comprised only 11.8%. Birds nesting in/on buildings comprised 52.7%, those nesting on trees/shrubs - 42.0%. The population densities of many bird species (e.g. doves from the genus Stepropelia, bulbuls, weavers) were comparatively low. Such a situation could have been caused by the exceptionally high ...
Then we took off for Namibia, Angola, and Abuja. At each stop, The U.S. ambassadors briefed us about the political situation and HIV/AIDS. Namibia has a 23% infection rate, and Angola 8%, mostly because of the war and relative immobility of the population. Angola is breathing a sigh of relief with the recent death of revolutionary leader Jonas Savimbi, and their rapidly increasing oil production bodes well for the future if the aftermath of the 41-year war can be accommodated. Luanda airport was full of airplanes of all kinds, since most of the roads have been destroyed.

We were fortunate enough to spend three nights camping in her lovely mopani-treed bush camp, and for a nominal initial fee we were allowed to attend the porcupine feeding every evening. Katrin has a small concrete area in front of the farmhouse which she uses as the feeding stage. Before the sun goes down she throws pellets or vegetables and porridge on this area and then waits for her hungry guests to arrive. We were extremely excited when we heard a swish swish of quills announcing the arrival of her first guests. Two large porcupines shuffled into the spotlight and proceeded to gobble up food as if their lives depended on it. It wasnt long before more wandered in and joined in the fray for food that lasted for up to two hours.. ...

A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographic information science (GI Science) to refer to the academic discipline that studies geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of geoinformatics.. What goes beyond a GIS is a spatial data infrastructure, a concept that has no such restrictive boundaries. In general, the term describes any information system that integrates, stores, edits, analyzes, shares, and displays geographic information. GIS applications are tools that allow users to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze spatial information edit data in maps, and present the results of all these operations.[3][4] Geographic information science is the science underlying geographic concepts, applications, and systems.. GIS can refer to a number of different technologies, processes, ...

Bas-Uele borders Central African Republic and is pretty close to South Sudan. Does that mean this outbreak will cross borders, too?. First, congratulations on knowing your African geography. Thats not exactly a strong suit among many people, and that led to some truly baffling responses to the last outbreak-like the Brazilian government cancelling a visit to Namibia in 2014 because of Ebola. (For the record, the distance between Windhoek and Conakry is about the same as the distance is about the same as the distance between New York and Dublin.). More importantly, the outbreak is happening in an area of the province that is difficult to access. That could make it difficult to get additional supplies to the region, but it also makes it far less likely that the disease will spread far.. But this is the DRC. Are they equipped to handle something like this?. Probably better than anyone else. The DRC has experienced Ebola before. The disease was first identified in the DRC-back when it was still ...

Cape Cross is about 120 km north of Swakopmund along the desert coastline of Namibia. It was one of the first landfalls of European explorers in southern Africa; Bartholomew Diaz erected a cross here. It consists of a rocky promontory, to the south of which is series of lagoons, which have a total area of about 5000 ha. The sandy barrier between the lagoons and the ocean consists of sediments brought down by the Orange River, and swept north by the actions of the Benguela Upwelling System. The lagoons are maintained by seepage of seawater, and by waves overtopping the barrier during spring high tides.. Cape Cross has a large Cape Fur Seal Arctocephalus pusillus population, numbering about 150 000 animals. It is on the mainland, so unlike island-based seal colonies, it is not space-limited.. Entrepeneurs have developed a simple but effective way of producing guano at the Cape Cross lagoons. Three wooden platforms with a total area of 68 000 ha were erected in the 1950s to provide a breeding and ...

Smith, 1841, in both the Etosha National and Kruger National Parks and from mountain zebra, Equus zebra hartmannae Matschie, 1898, in the Namib Naukluft Park in South West Afrfca/Namibia. These nematodes have an external leaf-crown with longer elements than those of the internal leaf-crown and a well-developed dorsal gutter. The very well-developed oesophageal funnel is both wider and deeper than the buccal capsule ...
Namibia also expressed readiness to reopen the border after coronavirus-induced restrictions on movement, and Angola said it would conduct a continuous assessment of its internal situation and decide accordingly on how best to proceed.. The two countries top diplomats met in the Second Session of the Namibia-Angola Diplomatic and Political Consultations, which took place virtually in Tsumeb this week. The session was co-chaired by Namibian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations and Co-operation Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, and Angolan Minister of External Relations Téte António.. A communiqué issued after the session indicated discussions mainly focused on enhancing bilateral ties in the areas of transport, energy, agriculture and water development, among others.. The parties exchanged views on regional trade issues, including SADCs Industrialisation Strategy, and the African Continental Free-Trade Area, both of which emphasise beneficiation and value addition on services ...
The diversification of current aquaculture practise in South Africa is crucial for the future development of the industry. The rock lobster, Jasus lalandii has been identified as a possible candidate species for shore based culture in systems similar to those used for abalone farming. Reduced Total Allowable Catch (TACs) and an increased minimum legal size were implemented as management strategies to relieve fishing pressure on natural stocks of J. lalandii, and in turn led to increased market demand and a possible niche for farmed lobsters. High puerulus settlement along the Namibian coast, together with other favourable aquaculture attributes, indicate that the commercial grow out of wild harvested juveniles could be feasible. The aim of study was to investigate the feasibility of growing out rock lobsters in shore based systems in Namibia and South Africa. The experimental objectives of the project were to investigate the nutritional requirements, as well as the effect of stocking density ...

We in modern times may scoff at the traditional superstition of the fairy rings, but until recently scientists were still struggling to explain the so-called fairy circles occurring in Africa. It is reported that in Namibia in southern Africa, bare, circular spots on the sandy grasslands have been occurring for unknown reasons. The circles behave much like the mycelium growths, persisting and then vanishing after decades. But scientists have ruled out a similar fungus, and until just last year they were stumped as to why these rings have been appearing in the remote, arid landscape.. In 2017, scientists published a report suggesting the African fairy circles may be explained by a combination of two ecological forces : groups of root-eating sand termites competing underground for resources and self-organizing plants competing above ground for water. Both have been suggested in the past as a possible cause, but the two forces had not been combined before Corina Tarnita of Princeton University ...
The mass scaling of discontinuous ventilation (DV) phenomena in adult motionless insects is currently unknown. I present DV phenomena from 10 species of Namib Desert tenebrionid beetles; four from the dune-sea habitat, five from the river-bed habitat and one from the gravel plain habitat, which is characterized by very low and patchy resource availability. This species differed from the others in many respects. However, all species exhibited a previously undescribed, convective and quantized F phase ventilation (ISP, or intermittent serial pulsation, phase). For dune-sea and river-bed habitat species, all DV characteristics except DV frequency (V phase CO2 emission volume and rate, total and per-burst ISP phase CO2 emission volume, and total rate) scaled tightly with body mass with a scaling exponent close to 1.0 (typical r2,0.95-0.98), as did overall rate of CO2 production and hence metabolic rate (MR). Consequently these parameters were independent of body mass when expressed on a ...
Edible and medicinal mushrooms are regarded as the ideal health foods. They are well appreciated for their exquisite taste and flavor and are consumed both fresh and in processed forms. Nutritive value of mushrooms is attributed to their high content of essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and low lipid content. Regular consumption of whole medicinal and edible mushrooms could introduce a functional or medicinal contribution within the individual’s diet. Medicinal mushrooms may prevent or treat "lifestyle-related diseases". The extent of the health beneficial effect will depend on the level, regularity of consumption, the relevance of medicinal mushrooms and concentrates to the particular disease. The minerals and trace elements in domesticated Namibian Ganoderma mushroom species were determined. The results show that fiber content was found highest with 45 g/100 g of dry weight, followed by calcium with 23 g/100 g, carbohydrate with 23 g/100 g, protein with 18.2 g/100 g, iron

Elephants need to consume a minimum of 100 liters of water and 100 kilograms of vegetation daily, yet a small population of 350 manages to survive in the harsh Gourma region of Mali, south of the Niger River, where temperatures spike to 50˚C and vegetation is sparse.. The scientists published their findings in the journal Biological Conservation¹. Rainfall is also limited, with an annual accumulation of 110 mm in the north and 600 mm in the south. Researchers equipped GPS collars to nine of the animals, four females in four separate herds, and five randomly selected males. Their movements were tracked for two years.. The data revealed that the Gourma elephants traverse a vast home range of 32,000 square kilometers, the largest ever reported for elephants, in their search for food and water. The Gourma elephants range is 150% larger than ranges reported for desert elephants in Namibia.. The elephants follow a circular route through the desert, heading south at the beginning of the rainy season ...
