Where will our research go from here? I hope that Home Depot has restocked its screen-door netting and PVC piping, because we plan to construct about 1,000 more seed traps. We will use them to study seed dispersal for 14 more species of trees. This will give us a community perspective on seed dispersal patterns. We will also investigate how the lack of bird handling and seed dispersal by birds impacts the germination and growth rate of seeds. In addition, we will evaluate the impacts of bird loss on local people by interviewing people who extract forest products for traditional uses. Several tree species used for medicinal purposes or as carving wood have seeds dispersed by birds, and thus may be experiencing population declines noticed by local people. Although the introduction of a non-native snake caused Guam's bird loss, other factors are causing bird losses in forests around the world. The ecological impacts of all of these declines — no matter what … [Read more...] about Guam’s Birds Gone: Can Forest Survive?
Speaking of Dinah, we can also see that male entitlement play out in her part of the story. Sionis has what seems to be complete control over Dinah, professionally.

It could be ‘advantage smaller banks’ with the government proposing higher insurance cover for depositors and a number of mutual funds taking a hit due to defaults and downgrades in the past couple of years. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her second Budget proposed to raise the insurance cover on bank deposits to Rs 5 lakh from Rs 1 lakh at present. This may not augment deposits for big banks that are already safe, but smaller lenders may see more seekers for their fixed deposit products. “Small banks always offered higher rates, but people were worried about putting money there because their business risks were less known. Now, with a higher insurance cover, small bank deposits will turn attractive,” said Vidya Bala, co-founder of PrimeInvestor.in. This could potentially eat into the pie of inflows to debt mutual funds which compete for depositors money. That, too, when a number of mutual fund schemes have taken a hit due to corporate defaults and … [Read more...] about Will better safety help smaller banks wean depositors away from MFs?
