resource managers often release exotic insects to stem the invasion But despite consuming the plants most biocontrol insects fail to stop their spread Now field studies suggest that the insects are simply overwhelmed The results presented here on 8 August at the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America could help researchers come up with better tests for picking biocontrol agents Before release biocontrol insects are usually tested to make sure they eat the invader and are likely to establish themselves in the invaded habitat But few are tested in the field to see if they’ll beat back plant populations says ecologist Amanda Stanley of the University of Washington Seattle For instance two species of seedhead gallflies were imported about 30 years ago from Russia to control spotted knapweed another Russian import that is taking over grasslands and savannas across the Western United States and Canada Although the gallflies breed easily in the region and eat the seeds of spotted knapweed the plant continues to spread unchecked To find out why Stanley looked at how gallflies and spotted knapweed interact in the field They caged off some plants to keep gallflies out and compared their fates to those in plots where gallflies had free access Gallflies ate most of the spotted knapweed seed cutting seedling density by 50% in areas exposed to gallflies But the same number of seedlings survive to adulthood with or without the gallflies Apparently gallflies can’t keep spotted knapweed populations down because the plants produce so many seeds that plenty escape the ravenous insects "I thought this was a fascinating study" says ecologist Tim Craig of the University of Minnesota Duluth The work also shows that more studies should be conducted prior to release that address whether biocontrol agents actually cut plant populations he says Related sites Images of the spotted knapweed life cycle Background on the use of biocontrol insects to fight weedsWritten by

Kala Pathar before dawn my path is lit by a waning moon three-quarters full The high snow peaks that encircle us — Pumori Nuptse and Ama Dablam — reflect the lunar glow with a ghostly luminescence Daybreak is still an hour away but there is enough moonlight to see the Khumbu glacier with its white pinnacles of ice During the first part of our climb the summit of Mt Everest is hidden from sight but as we get higher the dark striated pyramid begins to appear silhouetted against a cloudless sky Kala Pathar is a viewpoint directly opposite the Everest overlooking the base camp The altitude here is 5500 m above the sea level A lack of oxygen in the freezing air makes me pause every eight or 10 steps so my lungs can catch up with my legs The slow progress of our ascent and the gradual transition from shadow into light seems impossible to measure Because of the pale aura of the moon I cannot tell exactly when night has ended and morning has begun Reaching the crest of the ridge at last I settle myself on a rock and blow into my woollen gloves to warm my frozen fingers Somewhere to the east the sun is about to come up behind Everest and the first rays form a chevron against a brightening sky The moon is now a faded phantom sinking westward Anticipating the sunrise I count each second trying to gauge the precise moment it will appear But then as a blazing ball of light breaches the South Col its blinding radiance illuminates an eternal instant that transcends time In science fiction the fantasy of time travel is a popular cliché which is symptomatic of our modern imaginations sparked by Einstein’s theory of relativity The desire for instantaneous journeys that take us back into history or forward into the future comes out of a pervasive sense of urgency that has plagued our planet since the advent of rapid transport Today everybody seems to be in a greater and greater rush to go places As a result the journeys themselves have become foreshortened and virtually inconsequential while we race from Point A to Point B to Point X without any concern for what lies in between If I were to choose to travel back in time I would probably pick a point in history when no motor roads had penetrated the Himalayas so that I could hike from my home in the foothills of Garhwal up to the highest ranges without any acceleration other than the length and frequency of my stride Walking is the most natural means of self-propulsion and there is nothing more satisfying for me than covering distances on foot Though I have to admit that I also enjoy motorcycles and four-wheel drive vehicles it is only when I put on my boots and shoulder a pack that I feel the true exhilaration and freedom of a Himalayan journey A large part of my enjoyment comes from the solitary pursuit wandering diversions and unhurried pace that leave behind everyday routines deadlines and professional or social obligations In many ways the Everest Base Camp Trek which I completed in October 2017 is not my favourite kind of walk Though motor roads have yet to intrude upon the Khumbu Valley this has become one of the most commercialised tourist adventures in Nepal While the paths are congested with trekkers porters yaks and mules the skies swarm with helicopters ferrying people back and forth to the Gokyo Lakes and base camp or taking aerial sorties around Everest The mountains and glaciers themselves are spectacular but the trails and lodges are overcrowded and at times it feels like a relentless stampede in slow motion Usually when I go trekking I try to explore less-travelled routes I am fortunate to live in the first range of the Central Himalayas which provides easy access to higher remote elevations But the distance and duration of my journeys is unimportant for I can take as much pleasure in an afternoon stroll through the forests surrounding our home as I would on a 12-day trek above the tree line In a strange way walking in the Himalayas can be a form of time travel Before departing on a hike I leave my wristwatch and mobile phone behind freeing myself of the nagging persistence of seconds minutes and hours Setting off into the mountains is like stepping out of time or entering a different temporal dimension synchronised to the pace of the earth Geological time in the Himalayas marks the slowest and most ancient tempo Though the vertical terrain may appear immutable these mountains are constantly moving as tectonic plates continue to collide through continental drift pushing peaks and ridges skyward By some calculations the elevation of Everest is increasing at a rate of 5 mm every year Simultaneously erosion cuts away at rock and soil cancelling out these altitudinal advances Yet inevitably and inexorably the Himalayas slide forward and upward by infinitesimal increments Even as I ascend a steep ridgeline the mountains too are climbing with me set in motion aeons ago long before any form of life evolved on their slopes Glaciers travel at a much faster speed than the uplifted slabs of rock through which they pass though these rivers of ice also appear to be motionless On an average most glaciers move forward at the rate of one metre per day Their progress ends through a process of ablation when chunks of ice calve off to feed the swift melt-water that form the source of rivers Held in check over centuries the frozen moisture is finally released and rushes off down the valley in a turbulent current that seems to be making up for lost time Crossing a glacier I can hear the creak and rumble of hidden crevasses opening and closing beneath my feet like the steady pulse within a giant artery of ice Trees too have botanical clocks which are set to the seasons Arboreal time is quicker than geological but slower than a glacier Each species of tree has its own organic drumbeat from the hurried growth of pines and birches that can gain as much as half a meter every year to the stately spreading of an oak that inches upwards much more slowly Forests also migrate advancing and retreating according to temperature climate and human intervention Walking through a wooded valley in the Himalayas I’m conscious that I am moving much faster than everything else around me The earth that holds the roots of trees may be spinning on its axis and rotating around the sun but in the stillness of an alpine forest I am aware of only my momentum Time travel in the Himalayas is all a matter of relativity My passage through the mountains can be measured against the slower rhythms of rock ice and trees But when I finally reach my destination such as the top of Kala Pathar looking across at the sunrise over Everest it often feels as if my journey has taken me out of the present and into another realm of nature where time becomes irrelevant Stephen Alter is an author most recently of Becoming a Mountain: Himalayan Journeys in Search of the Sacred and the Sublime For all the latest

According to the study women who have not given birth are less likely to suffer from urinary incontinence compared to pregnant women “Those who have urinary incontinence before a pregnancy are at higher risk of getting significantly worse after childbirth This is a particularly vulnerable group and should therefore be attended to and counselled in antenatal care and should be identified in maternal health” said Maria Gyhagen Researcher at the Gothenburg University Sweden Watch What Else Is Making News The study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology involved about 9200 women aged 25-64 years who had never given birth In the category of young women (25-35 years) with normal weight (BMI up to 25) 10 per cent said they had urinary incontinence Among the oldest in the study (55-64 years) with a BMI over 35 almost every other woman experienced this type of incontinence Seventeen per cent of women over 55 said they had to get up and urinate at least twice every night For those who reported incontinence 25-30 per cent experienced their incontinence as bothersome “The original purpose of the study was to measure the effects of pregnancy in itself
