Scientists conduct numerous studies and report that low temperatures can positively affect trees and negatively affect emerald ash borers. Last year emerald ash borers were officially confirmed to be in huge quantities in the city. Winnipeg has been fighting the bug for a long time and the struggle in the future may cost the city millions of dollars. However, scientists are doing research and they are almost certain that temperatures -30 C can kill and slo...

Canada lichenologists unite to choose a lichen for each province. Now, Manitoba has official bird, tree and flower and in the nearest future it might also have its official lichen. Hundreds of studies are conducted across the country to identify lichens and, accordingly, to create a new official symbol of Manitoba and other provinces. The idea came back in 2016, and in 2017, Canadian scientists began to draw attention to it. People usually do not pay atten...

In North America, there are three types of bears - black, white and grizzly. And they usually do not live in the same place. But in Wapusk National Park on the west coast of Hudson Bay in northern Manitoba, researchers from the University of Saskatchewan for the first time managed to capture all three species of bears on camera. Observations began in 2011. Remote cameras were used - a widespread, economical and non-invasive tool for studying wildlife. With...

At the request of the Manitoba Wildlife Federation, Winnipeg-based Probe Research surveyed more than 700 fishermen who were fishing in Winnipeg Lake in winter. The bottom line: a “green” approach to Lake Winnipeg means big money in Man...

Ecologists and researchers of the city can not name the causes that led to the death of birds in summer. This summer, a lot of dead birds were seen in the pond located at the corner at Keewatin Street and Adsum Drive. City residents continue to wonder what happened, and that caused the death of so many birds. Water samples were taken by scientists and sent to a laboratory for research. The main researcher of the laboratory said that the algae in the pond c...

The situation develops in such a way that harmful insects multiply, and useful bugs die out. So, pesky mosquitoes, disease-carrying ticks, crop-munching aphids and cockroaches become more and more from year to year. However, native bees, moths, butterflies, ladybugs, lovebugs, mayflies and fireflies become fewer and fewer. Scientists are concerned, it seems to them that something strange is happening. However, unfortunately, they do not have exact data on...
