Globes are known from antiquity but their modern development in the west dates from the 15th century. The study of geographical and astronomical globes involves those interested in the histories of science, geography and astronomy. Early globes are widely scattered, with some preserved in museums and galleries but many remaining in historic houses. Toxic blue-green algae has been found at sites by the Harvard Bridge and the Museum of Science, the Charles River Watershed Association said in .
Conservation, study of the loss of Earth’s biological diversity and the ways this loss can be prevented. Biological diversity, or biodiversity, is the variety of life either in a particular place or on the entire planet Earth, including its ecosystems, species, populations, and genes. “Environmental conservation is limited by a lack of funding and other resources,” said study lead author Jeffrey Smith, a Stanford graduate student in biology. “Ecoregions give us .
Forest and conservation workers must make quick, intelligent decisions, especially when they face dangerous conditions. Detail oriented. Forest and conservation workers must watch gauges, dials, or other indicators to determine whether equipment and tools are working properly. Workers must follow safety procedures with precision.

ISBN Globe-Conservation is based on theories and intense studies. This book is written for the conservator-restorer to give him or her new knowledge, especially the chapter on globes made of metal spheres with paper gores is an entirely new research work.
But also the other parts are systematized and exhaustively researched. We undertake the conservation of globes, maps, paper, vellum and parchment, leather, books, prints and graphics for museums, libraries, state archives and private collectors. As there are many aspects and factors to be considered in conservation, our conservators make a detailed examination of each globe.

Although scientists often worry most about the loss of the world’s predators, a comprehensive new study finds that plant-eating herbivores are the animals most at risk of extinction. About one. 1 day ago The study’s lead author, Dr. Hedley Grantham, WCS Director of Conservation Planning, said: “This study shows that just prioritizing forests based on their condition will trade-off biodiversity representation benefits, and vice versa will miss locations for preserving the remaining intact forests important for many species in an increasingly human-dominated world.
The detailed results of the seminal study are available in Culture, Leadership, and Organizations: The GLOBE Study of 62 Societies. Read more about this study here. The second GLOBE study in was a follow-up to the study, with researchers in 25 countries reporting in depth on leadership and culture in their respective country contexts.

We aim to create a safe and valuable space for discussion and debate. 4 hours ago The study, published in the journal Global Ecology and Biogeography, used data from seed germination experiments compiled by the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew to calculate germination tolerance characteristics such as maximum, minimum, and optimum temperature for over 1, plant species, spanning every continent except Antarctica.
Paper makes up the legible surfaces which distinguish historic printed globes as instruments of science and art. In its development as an area of specialty, the treatment of globes is informed by the conservation of other works on paper that are similar in media, complex in assembly, or dynamic in format.
Study: Much Of The Globe May Experience ‘No Warming’ For 30 Years Climate Change Dispatch / by Kenneth Richard / A new study documents the dominance of internal variability in decadal-scale global temperature changes and suggests we may experience a global cooling trend during the next 15 or even 30 years despite rising greenhouse gases.The Library of Congress Geography and Map Division holds one of the largest collections of globes in the world.
The construction of a new temperature- and humidity-controlled storage facility in Fort Meade, Maryland, provided the opportunity to house many of these globes in ideal conditions.
