Rajasthan government fails to utilise Rs 600-lakh fund 7.5.2018 DNA: India
A hefty fund of Rs 600 lakh, which is allocated by the Centre for the ambitious agro-forestry programme, is going waste in the hands of the Rajasthan government. The ambitious programme of the Centre titled 'Har Medh Par Ped' (trees on every farm boundary) (HMPP), seeks plantation of trees on the boundary of all farms. The scheme HMPP was an initiative aimed at supplementing the income of farmers, and also a move to meet nationally determined contributions (NDCs), committed by India to combat climate change. In fact, out of 11 states chosen for HMPP, only four have managed to spend part of its allocated amount. This is despite experts agreeing with the scheme not being an alien concept and agro-forestry being a part of the traditional techniques of supplementing farm income. "Farmers in Rajasthan have traditionally been planting trees on the boundary of their farms. It not only supplements income, but also helps meet nutritional needs of the farmer's family," told Dr Jagdev Singh, deputy director, ...

Warming Antarctic risks diet of Emperor Penguins 5.5.2018 DNA: Mumbai
The most beautiful birds in Antartic, Emperor Penguins eat a variety of fish but diminishing sea ice in the warming Antarctic means less fish to eat. The tallest and heaviest of all living penguin species, Emperor Penguin, have a varied menu that changes with the season. Researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) have developed a way to help determine the foraging success of Emperor penguins. Off all the penguin species, Emperor penguins tend to be the biggest eaters. And for good reason: they make exceptionally long treks on sea ice to reach their foraging grounds and feed their large chicks when they return. But as sea ice diminishes, so does the microscopic plankton living underneath, which serves as the primary food source for fish that penguins eat. Sea ice also provides an important resting platform for the penguins in between foraging dives, so melting can make foraging that much harder. "Global warming may be cutting in on food availability for Emperor penguins," said Dan ...
