A research team aims to increase our appreciation of 'severely threatened' pubs in England. Take a walk through a typical village in England and the chances are you will stumble across a King's Head, Rose & Crown or a Red Lion for a pint of ale or a bite to eat. But how would you feel if the traditional public house were to disappear from our streets? Pubs are amongst the most common and well-loved buildings in the country, but have recently been identified as 'a severely threatened building type' by English Heritage. Researchers will take an in-depth look at the situation.
Several bear species that today only occur in America or in Asia have hybridized in their evolutionary history, researchers have discovered. The Beringia land bridge, which in former times connected the habitats of these species, might have enabled their encounter. A new large-scale study is based on the comparison and analysis of genetic material of all bear species that still exist.
