Welcome to Animal | Vegetable | Mineral

I never cease to be awed by the splendor of the natural world, by the forces that shape the earth, and by the diversity and ingenuity of the life that populates it.

Animal | Vegetable | Mineral is a group where those who share this fascination can discuss the Earth and animal sciences of geology, volcanology, seismology, ecology, ethology, primatology, entymology—basically all the –ologies of the natural world.

A volcanic eruption formed a new island Wednesday morning in the Pacific Ocean to the far south of Tokyo, the Japanese coast guard and earthquake experts said.

The eruption is currently taking place southeast of Nishinoshima island, which is part of Japan’s Ogasawara island chain. It has already created an island with a diameter of 660 feet, suggesting that the vent was located in very shallow waters.

A volcanologist with the coast guard, Ito Hiroshi, told the FNN news network that it was possible the new island might eventually erode away. Although the uninhabited Nishinoshima grew in size between 1973 and 1974, and then became connected to a new island created by volcanic activity, during the last eruption.
