UK Experts Successfully Grow Rare Birch Species

Published by:

Scientists from UK finally germinated Betula chichibuensis seedlings, an endangered Japanese Birch species. These were the first successfully germinated seedlings for the past thirty years. There are only 21 known surviving species of the tree. The propagation of the trees needs to be aided or else the trees won’t last.

Two trees need to be located near enough to make cross-pollination possible. This makes production of seeds difficult in small groups. Deforestation and forest degradation also threatens the survival of the rare birch trees.

On 2014, a group of experts led by University of Oxford Botanic Gardens together with University of Tokyo went on a mission to gather seeds from Betula chichibuensis species. Dan Luscombe of Forestry Commission’s Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest joined the team.

Luscombe said they were fortunate to arrive at the perfect time. The tree was found in an extremely isolated location which is difficult to access. It was the time when the seeds were shedding which it does only once. They were able to gather plenty of seeds from the deteriorating tree.

Luscombe approximated that the group collected around a thousand seeds. From these seeds, Bedgebury Pinetum was able to germinate a hundred seedlings. He explained that the seedlings are extremely rare and forests are vulnerable. Someone who wants to return them to their natural habitat or plant them on a different place must learn how to raise them.

The lasting goal of the venture is to grow the rare birch seedlings in different arboretums throughout U.K. They will also continue collaboration with experts in Japan to guard the existence of the rare Japanese birch species in the forests.

Luscombe and his colleagues plan to try cultivating the birch trees in diverse weather conditions, soils and other environments. He expounded that cultivating the seedlings in different areas of the country would lessen the risk of trees destructed by storm or plant diseases.

They also plan to make seed orchards for a continuous seed supply. The trees can be placed in parks and landscapes with the help of Pro Decor as long as the owners will learn how to take care of the threated species of Japanese birch.

Petrosani is one of the poorest cities of Romania that turned into a party mode for a wedding celebration of a couple whose names were not mentioned.

More than 700 guests arrived in the most luxurious and expensive cars for the opulent wedding which obviously overwhelmed the city. Super cars that include Porches, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, BMWs, Mercedes Benzes and Humvees lined the streets and paralyzed traffic. As the anonymous bride and groom rode through town in a white carriage adorned by Romanian flags and pulled by two black stallions, all the traffic lights were switched off.

Tutoring Lessens Mathematics Apprehension, According To A Study

Published by:

The mind of a child perceives math as threatening as poisonous animals. Being exposed to fear in numbers places a child in substantial drawback, not in school performance alone but even in facing adversities and jobs in the future.

Fortunately, new findings show that there is a solution for children with math anxiety. Tutoring in Long Beach does not only teach children, according to the study. It also soothes the part of the brain which triggers anxiety.

The chief author of the study, Vinod Menon, claims that results show that one-on-one tutoring does not only improve cognitive function, it also leads to reduced fear. Menon is a neuroscientist and instructor in Stanford University.

The authors of the research used MRI scans to study a child’s reaction to math. They found out that numbers activate similar neurons that other phobias trigger like fear on insects, serpents and heights. Treatment for these known phobias includes exposure therapy. The aim of the gradual exposure is to resolve the fear to a certain trigger. This made the researchers think if it might work the same for math anxiety.

The respondents of the research were 46 pupils from the third grade. They answered queries about fear of math. They solved math problems while functional MRI visualized their brains.  From the results of the tests, the children were grouped in two. One group was believed to have greater fear in math while the second group had lesser anxiety.

Later, the children from the two groups had been tutored with math individually for 2 months.

All of the children improved in math after the tutoring sessions according to Menon. Remarkably, MRI scans of the children who had fear with numbers had their anxiety decrease to 20% after the 2-month lessons.

Menon said the sessions were extremely individual. If a child had a difficulty on a certain lesson, the tutor encouraged the child until the concept became clear.

The authors look forward to another study about on-screen tutoring. They want to find out if it will lead to same benefits and neuron changes. They also want to find out if fear in math stays as children progress to advanced math.
