How to live forever.

1. Live in freezing cold water
2. Move really slowly
3. Don't eat much
4. Have toxic flesh

A recently identified 512-year-old Greenland shark may be the world’s oldest living vertebrate. Although scientists discovered the 18-foot fish in the North Atlantic months ago, its age was only recently revealed in a study published in the journal Science. Greenland sharks have the longest lifespan of any vertebrate animal, so it is perhaps unsurprising that the species would boast the oldest living individual vertebrate as well. Nonetheless, the fact that this creature may have been born as early as 1505 is remarkable

Most people know that humans derive some degree of pleasure when watching the punishment of those deemed bad. In this new effort, the researchers sought to learn more about this behavior by testing it in children and comparing what they found to reactions by chimpanzees.

The nabarlek was thought to only survive on several offshore islands, where it was safe from fire, feral animals and grazing threats.

Archaeobotany: Hunting for ancient farms in North America

Quote:
Over 2,000 years ago in North America, indigenous people domesticated plants that are now part of our everyday diets, such as squashes and sunflowers. But they also bred crops that have since returned to the wild. These include erect knotweed (not to be confused with its invasive cousin, Asian knotweed), goosefoot, little barley, marsh elder, and maygrass. We haven’t simply lost a few plant strains: an entire cuisine with its own kinds of flavors and baked goods has simply disappeared.
By studying lost crops, archaeologists learn about everyday life in the ancient Woodland culture of the Americas, including how people ate plants that we call weeds today. But these plants also give us a window on social networks. Scientists can track the spread of cultivated seeds from one tiny settlement to the next in the vast region that would one day be known as the United States. This reveals which groups were connected culturally and how they formed alliances through food and farming.

Me too.

The blog's a bit rambly and not well ordered but there is some more cool stuff in there, including a link to a paper and chatty stuff identifying a couple ethno-paleobotanists who pioneered some of this kind of work. Short description of how they began taking soil from graves/caves/firepits/house sites, mixing with water and seeing what floated to the top, which is how some of these ancient crops were recognized. Also from antique poop.

Also a bit on fibre crops such as the bamboo-like native cane which was also domesticated and is now becoming rare but still used for basket-making.

ETA: And some oddities like finding stands of these plants in unexpected places, and the revenge of amaranth, which is becoming a superweed in round-up ready corn fields, having achieved resistance.

We found no historical evidence of sugar gliders occurring in Tasmania prior to 1835. All Tasmanian individuals (n = 27) were genetically identical at the three genes surveyed here with those individuals being 0.125% divergent from individuals from a population in Victoria. Bayesian analysis of divergence between Tasmanian individuals and southern Australian individuals suggested a recent introduction of sugar gliders into Tasmania from southern Australia.

The reason for such a different policy on carcass removal is down to the regulations introduced in response to the Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) crisis – an animal disease with serious human health implications that is potentially spread through the presence of dead cattle. In 2001, after the BSE crisis, the EU prohibited the abandonment of livestock carcasses in the field, with impacts on scavenging birds, including vultures.

Fortunately, a consensus among scientists and conservation managers led to improved EU legislations that allowed for the conservation of scavenging birds while taking care of the veterinary and sanitary issues. Nevertheless, the new legal framework did not establish mandatory guidelines for EU member states, which are allowed to develop their own regulations concerning livestock carcass disposal.

This has resulted in a situation in which neighbouring countries in a continuous ecological region may apply different criteria, and this is what is happening in the Iberian Peninsula.
In Spain – home to around 95 per cent of European vultures – farmers leave carcasses in large areas of the countryside where vultures occur. This has benefited not only the birds but the farmers themselves, who have saved time and money, and the Spanish tax payer. The planet also benefits, as costly polluting carcass removal and processing schemes are minimised. In contrast, the Portuguese authorities still require livestock breeders to remove dead animals from fields, except for at a few dedicated feeding stations close to the Spanish border.
