Tout ce que nous percevons de la lumière résulte d’une interaction avec la matière. De fait, lumière et matière sont toujours des entités intimement liées. Mais leur double nature – classique et quantique – interroge et ouvre sur de multiples applications étonnantes.

The FitzPatrick Report The Gough Island Restoration Programme to rid the island of the invasive house mice decimating the seabird population is an ambitious and far-reaching project.

SABAP The millions of records collated by SABAP2 have enabled detailed distribution maps to be built, allowing researchers to better understand birds and their movements. Interestingly, the data can also be used to monitor bird migration patterns.

Stay or go? Migration as an evolutionary driver While almost one fifth of all birds undertake regular movements, usually tied to seasonal cycles, such large-scale movements also incur risks. The balance between these costs and benefits determines who stays and who migrates. Recent studies suggest that migration also promotes speciation.

A 10-day adventure into the middle of the desert, the survey resulted in the first bird list for this area: 189 species.
