When you want to count how many rare animals are out there, remote cameras have come into their own. Now even the spy in the sky can help, with the first study of a whale species that has been having high mortality problems with its calves.

Some carnivorous toads find it useful to breed when they’re starving. The herbivorous tadpoles make a fine snack! Here is another possibility in the beautiful poison dart frog, Dendrobates tinctorius.

When they rage at the dingo, the ignorant fail to appreciate what many of us have thought. The need for such predation and scavenging is always present, plus we all need more natural systems than the awesome monoculture we get from tropical oil palms to “recyclable” spruce plantations.

Ways to improve our environment vary from cutting everything down to leaving corridors for animals and plants to penetrate. This study recommends really trying to encourage riverside vegetation. It achieves the complexity that we miss so often in anthropogenic landscapes.

Can we really be useful to our coastal fauna, by providing their old nurseries and larders in the form of algal forest, as well as artificial reefs and controlled fishing?

How do marine animals cope with raised acidity in the sea? We have to study how adjustment can work, if species are able to adjust to future levels at all.

One of the few frackers in Western Europe, will the UK, go ahead with its risky programme of hydraulic fracturing? Many other nations have banned it completely because of its geological and high-carbon reputation.

Who can stop the terrible accumulation of greenhouse gases? Well it seems some politicians are still intent on increasing them! And the reason? Simply making lots of profit.

You would expect an evolutionary shift to be a trend, but in one great family of fish, there is little evidence that lightning strikes twice, especially in the same freshwater ecosystem!

How long before we join up the dots and realise that invertebrates, well-known species and the forests and savannah themselves are all going away from us? It's not only the rhino and the elephant that are suffering badly. The same poachers are also causing African catastrophes in many other locations. Help is needed from all of us.

Many carnivores are in trouble, especially in the oceans and the urban areas of Europe and Asia. The ancestor of our domestic dog is one species that does seem able to bounce back, given some reasonable conditions of a little wilderness and a plentiful supply of deer herds. Good luck, Bouncer!

So will global warming affect your garden or the wild animals and plants around you? The answer is now clear, as more and more results appear around the earth, from drought and flood to simply warmer summers.
