The Voedseltuin IJplein was created in 2014 on the former site of a dock, now filled in with sand and a top layer of... Read More »

Toxic blue-green algae adapt to rising CO2

Universiteit Ams

The research team, led by Professor of Aquatic Microbiology Jef Huisman, trained their microscopes on Microcystis, a type of blue-green algae that proliferate in lakes and reservoirs in summer. The team analysed the genetic composition of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae's scientific name), observing Microcystis in both the lab and the Kennemer lake, under CO2-rich and poor conditions.

Voice control in orangutan gives clues to early human speech

Universiteit Ams

Evolution The ability to produce new sounds, so-called vocal fold control, was critical to the evolution of spoken language. It has, however never been demonstrated directly in a non-human primate. This has led some to believe that great apes –our closest relatives – could not learn to produce new sounds and because speech is a learned behaviour therefore could not have originated from them. Mimicking sounds Rocky was studied at Indianapolis Zoo, Indiana, USA, where he is currently housed, between April and May 2012, and all steps were taken... Read More »

Rabobank: Brazil’s great latent potential to feed the world

rabobankelmer_83233

The outlook for the global demand for grains & oilseeds is very promising for the near future, as the dietary shift towards foods with higher protein content in developing countries (particularly China and India) materialises—driven by rising incomes and a growing middle class. Global demand for animal feed is also set to increase. This will boost grain consumption, since grain comprises over 70 percent of conventional feed ingredients. Lacking port capacity and a history of underinvestment in port terminals has, however, remained a key ... Read More »
