Tigers fall prey to development

Issue Date: Nov 15, 2013
It was March 2013. We were on a field trip surveying wild carnivores. As we walked along a flank of the Tillari reservoir, my companion pointed at a large “scrape” (a patch of jungle floor recently cleared by an animal’s hind paws) along the forest trail and asked if it belonged to a tiger. It did look like a tiger’s scrape. I was excited.

Renewables hold key to future This is with reference to the article, “Germany in transition” (September 1-15, 2013). I have seen the extensive wind farms set up in north Germany near Hanover during my visits to the country. The farms are, indeed, impressive. I have also visited Wacker Chemie in Burghausen, one of the largest manufacturers of polysilicon in Europe. However, the photovoltaic (PV) industry in Germany is facing a crisis due to the import of Chinese modules. Your article seems to be oblivious of the present scenario.

Instead, it gained an almost mythical status, largely for its pursuit of an elusive concept—national happiness.

For the love of birds

Issue Date: Oct 15, 2013
BIRDS are notoriously difficult to count. It takes a lot of effort to note the type and number of birds in an area. This website brings together thousands of people from all over the world, who are involved in counting birds and describing their behaviour. eBird’s daily view of bird movements has vastly improved data.

Intern’s discovery

Issue Date: Oct 15, 2013
An Oxford museum intern has found rare specimens of butterflies lost since the 19th century. The specimens discovered by Athena Martin, 17, are described as “priceless” by the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. They had been brought back from South America by a Victorian naturalist but many of the butterflies were thought lost at sea in the 1850s.
