Battle to save world's favourite treat - chocolate 27.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The trees of the International Cacao Collection grow in Turrialba, Costa Rica in an astonishing diversity of forms, bearing skinny cacao pods with scorpion-stinger protrusions, spherical green pods that could be mistaken for tomatillos, oblong pods with bumpy skin resembling that of the horned lizard — all in colours ranging from deep purple to bright yellow. Within each of these pods are seeds that yield something beloved by billions: chocolate. But despite this diversity, few cacao varieties are widely cultivated, and that's a problem: like many other crops, cacao is under constant threat from diseases and environmental challenges exacerbated by our tendency to grow only a few varieties with similar or identical genetic traits and defects. "Most varieties produced worldwide belong to a narrow set of clones selected in the '40s," said Wilbert Phillips-Mora, who oversees this collection of 1,235 types of cacao trees and heads the Cacao Genetic Improvement Program at CATIE (an acronym in Spanish for ...

Climate change threatens parasites 25.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Animals around the world are on the move. So are their parasites. Recently, scientists carried out the first large-scale study of what climate change may do to the world's much-loathed parasites. The team came to a startling conclusion: As many as one in three parasite species may face extinction in the next century. As global warming raises the planet's temperature, the researchers found, many species will lose territory in which to survive. Some of their hosts will be lost, too. "It still absolutely blows me away," said Colin J Carlson, lead author of the study and a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley, USA. He knows many people may react to the news with a round of applause. "Parasites are obviously a hard sell," Colin said. But as much as a tapeworm or a blood fluke may disgust us, parasites are crucial to the world's ecosystems. Their extinction could effect entire food webs, perhaps even harming human health. Parasites deserve some of the respect that top predators have ...
