Scientists do not believe their own eyes. A total of 42 percent of Czech butterfly species were counted on a small grazing area. Thanks to wild horses

The results of a census of butterflies from a wild horse pasture in the former Milovice military training area outside Prague have taken scientists’ breath away. In two years, the hoofed mammals managed to create a site with a high degree of species diversity, referred to as a “hotspot”. An analysis of the butterfly monitoring results was completed by experts in recent days.

“In 2016, we recorded 59 species of diurnal butterflies in the pasture …

Climate change is altering the North Pole. Instead of minus 30 degrees, the temperature is above zero in the Arctic regions

Climate change is becoming increasingly evident in the Arctic regions. The recent strong storm brought masses of warm air over Greenland as far as the North Pole, where it is now 30 degrees warmer than usual as sea ice melts locally due to the warming.

During the storm, the wind was about 140 kilometres per hour, lifting waves at sea over 16 meters high. Consequently, the temperature around the North Pole reached over the past …

Even intense frost does not matter to large herbivores in a reserve; they can find a variety of food in the grazing area

Although temperatures at night recorded in a large herbivore reserve located in the former military training area of Milovice near Prague have fallen to minus 20 degrees Celsius in recent days, herds of wild horses, European bison and aurochs produced through a back-breeding programme do not mind cruel frosts. They find sufficient food in the pasture land, be it in the form of dry grass under snow that they can dig out or branches, twigs …
