Researchers find 24 species believed new to science in Suriname rainforest

...of Paramaribo, the capital. They found a virtually unexplored region of mountain savannah forest, high dryland rainforest and palm swamp with freshwater sources clean enough to support abundant fish and amphibian life. Among the 24 species believed new to science are an Atelopus frog with brilliant purple ma...

The Antarctic Ocean floor

.... The reason why these waters have remained almost unexplored is due to its adverse climate which, in turn, has assured that human presence has been scarce. On this present campaign the scientists will trawl the ocean floor at up to 2000 metres depth, using both Agassiz-trawl fitted with a closed net as well a...
