Volcanoes helped Antarctic organisms survive ice ages, study suggests

If an ice age is coming and you are a lichen in Antarctica, you better hope you live near a volcano. A new study suggests organisms native to the South Pole survived ice ages by huddling in pockets of warmth created by the heat of underground volcanoes. These slightly warmer areas would have kept some parts of the continent ice free and let organisms survive on that land, said Peter Convey, of the British Antarctic Survey

Climate change causing mangroves to grow in Florida

Washington, Jan 1 (IANS/EFE): Mangrove trees, which are highly sensitive to cold, have expanded enormously on the Atlantic coast of Florida as the frequency of frosts has diminished, says a study. The analysis of satellite data compiled over 28 years by the University of Maryland and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center showed that during 1984-2011 the Florida coast, from Miami northwards, has gained more than 1,240 hectares of mangroves. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
