Chocolate to the Rescue of Southern Bahia's Unique and Rich Biodiversity

New York Botanical Garden

To boost cacao tree productivity, conservationists and chocolate manufacturers alike advocate a shift to small cocoa farms, such as the "cabrucas" of southern Bahia, Brazil, the fourth largest producer of cocoa beans in the world. By leaving the original forest canopy intact to shade the cacao trees, the "cabruca" preserves much of the plant diversity of a region which enjoys one of the most diverse forests in the world and an abundance of unique species of plants found nowhere else on the planet -- not a small accomplishment considering that only an estimated 0.4% of the original Bahian coastal forest remains intact today.

Looking Through the Eyes of a Squid

Marine Biological Laboratory

Scientists at the Marine Biological Laboratory have found that Squid use polarization vision to enhance predation and survival. Although humans can't see polarized light, a variety of animals use polarization vision to enhance their black and white vision. Until now, however, scientists associated only a few functions with polarization vision and were not at all certain about why animals like squid need it at all.
