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. 
 

For general science, chemistry, genetics, or evolution, please post in the Science! group. For posts on animal rights and welfare, please post in Animal Care. For cosmology, please post in The Daily Cosmos. For green living, sustainability, and environmental activism, please post in the Green Atheists group.

On Starlings.

Stephens Sea Snails,

Oh yes, plenty of complaining here to,

Comment by Stephen on April 11, 2016 at 1:54am

We have many farmers who are against the reintroduction so is the pheasant shooters, but screw them to my mind this is a good thing, as long as its researched properly.

Comment by Mrs.B on April 11, 2016 at 1:50am

Yes, but we do have culls when some things over-populate.

Comment by Stephen on April 11, 2016 at 1:48am

Canada has the space but the UK is tiny in comparison. But I'm still in favour of the reintroduction. But it would have to be carefully watched.

Comment by Mrs.B on April 11, 2016 at 1:45am

They are good for the ecology according to a documentary we watched.

Comment by Stephen on April 11, 2016 at 1:22am

We haven't had wolves in Britain for over a century and its a hot topic over here, whether we should reintroduce wolves and what would be the consequences.

We have several species of wolves here.

The place where wolves could soon return

Wolf

The last wolf in the UK was shot centuries ago, but now a "rewilding" process could see them return to Scotland. Adam Weymouth hiked across the Scottish Highlands in the footsteps of this lost species.

Environmental Health Services (EHS) and Vector control..

Environmental health practitioners deal with vector control issues daily. With the threat of terrorism, practitioners must also prepare for possible biologic attacks in which animal and insect vectors could be used to deliver disease-causing organisms.

This section provides information and technical assistance on vector control for preventing disease and protecting public health.
