We employed reasoning informed by game theory to figure out whether elephant poaching is likely to increase or decrease under each China policy scenario in the future
There is over 60km of methane gas dissolved in the deep water of the lake; the supersaturated gas would release spontaneously if the deep water was displaced upward – just like a soda bottle pops when it is vigorously shaken

Collectively, African coastal and island states encompass vast ocean territories of an estimated 13 million sq. km. Many are failing to ensure safe and secure conditions for those working and living off the oceans
The range of research being undertaken is remarkable in view of the size of Africa’s overall contribution: from galaxies to viruses; from agriculture to malaria; and from drought to oceanography.
