Silencing the symphony of one of the most biodiverse rainforests on the planet
Silencing the symphony of one of the most biodiverse rainforests on the planet
New study measuring biological sounds reveals how palm oil and teakwood industries contribute to deforestation and threaten wildlife in Costa Rica. A recording captured in one of Costa Rica's expansive rainforests floods my ears: the steady drip of humidity from verdant plants, the caws of vibrant toucans, the signature screeches from howler monkeys that can be heard from miles away; if I close my eyes, I can nearly feel the swoosh of air from these creatures as they soar and swing in lush trees above.

Building standards failing to deliver healthy ventilation
Building standards are failing to ensure offices, shops, public buildings and homes provide healthy ventilation, say leading experts. In a report on air pollution by England's Chief Medical Officer, the panel of scientists and engineers describe a system where buildings were complying with the standards at the design phase but there was limited scrutiny to see if those standards were being met as the buildings went up, when in use or if they were adapted over time.
