according to a team of scientists who have fingered human carnivory—and its impact on land use—as the single biggest threat to much of the world’s flora and fauna Already a major cause of extinction our meat habit will take a growing toll as people clear more land for livestock and crops to feed these animals a study in the current issue of Science of the Total Environment predicts “It’s a colossally important paper” says Gidon Eshel a geophysicist at Bard College in Annandale-On-Hudson New York who studies how human diets affect the environment and who was not part of the study Researchers have struggled to determine the full impacts of meat consumption on biodiversity Eshel says “Now we can say only slightly fancifully: You eat a steak you kill a lemur in Madagascar You eat a chicken you kill an Amazonian parrot” That’s because species-rich habitats are being converted to pasture and feed crops as the human appetite for meat swells But others disagree that livestock production is the leading cause of habitat loss “They’ve created [a] stickman to be knocked down” says Clayton Marlow a grassland ecologist at Montana State University Bozeman “without accomplishing anything for either the ecosystem or the poor” Previous studies have explored links between modern livestock production and climate change water pollution and the loss of some herbivores and top predators such as wolves and lions “But how is it impacting other species” asks Brian Machovina an ecologist at Florida International University in Miami and the paper’s lead author To find out he and his colleagues looked at studies that identified the world’s biodiversity hotspots—those areas that contain the highest percentage of endemic plant and animal species Most are located in tropical nations Then the researchers picked out countries that are most likely to expand their industrial livestock operations and determined where and how much land will be lost to grazing and growing crops to feed livestock Using data from the Food and Agriculture Organization and other studies about the production of cattle pigs and chickens in these countries from 1985 to 2013 and the amount of land the livestock required they extrapolated the likely future expansion of agricultural lands Finally they created maps of overlap Many of the places expected to see the greatest shift in land use from forest to livestock are in 15 “megadiverse” countries which harbor the largest number of species Machovina says “By 2050 given current trends these countries will likely increase the lands used for livestock production by 30% to 50%”—some 3000000 square kilometers—the researchers estimate The habitat loss is so great that it will cause more extinctions than any other factor the study notes particularly when coupled with other deleterious effects of livestock production including climate change and pollution “These changes will have major negative impacts on biodiversity” Machovina says “Many many species will be lost” The trend toward meat-eating is already having an impact the scientists say Citing other studies they note that more than three-quarters of the land previously cleared in the Amazon region is now used either as pasture for livestock or to raise feed crops for domestic and international markets And the rapid deforestation there continues: Another 1898 square kilometers of forest were removed over the last year Further more than half of the Amazon’s Cerrado a woodland savanna ecosystem known for its rare species has also been cleared for raising cattle and soy Habitats have also been—and continue to be—lost throughout Central and Latin America for the same reasons the scientists say who see a similar future for Africa By revealing where the most flora and fauna will disappear as lands are converted to agriculture for meat production “the study equips us with a means to quantify the costs of our dietary choices in terms of species loss” Eshel says The study also “suggests potential solutions that merit serious consideration” notes ecologist David Tilman from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities who was not part of the work To stop the loss of biodiversity Machovina and his colleagues recommend that people limit meat consumption to 10% of their calories; eat more fruits and vegetables; replace beef—the most land-hungry meat—with pork chicken and fish; and change livestock production practices But Tilman warns this won’t be easily done “The challenge is to find solutions that meet human needs and simultaneously protect remaining natural habitats” Meeting the challenge of “feeding the world’s growing population with a shrinking land base” can’t be done without “intensive animal and crop production” says Marlow who argues that the real problem facing biodiversity is the loss of arable land to development such as urban and slum sprawl He adds that developing countries are adopting industrialized livestock production because it’s efficient and “the only way we can feed the world’s growing population” If eating meat means consuming habitat the world might consider food writer Michael Pollan’s advice: “Eat food Not too much

astrocytomathe most frequent type of brain cancer in children Scientists coordinated by the German Cancer Research Center (as part of the International Cancer Genome ConsortiumICGC) in 96 gemone analyses of pilocytic astrocytomas found defects in genes involved in a particular pathway They believe that drugs can be used to help affected children by blocking components of the signalling cascade Pilocytic astrocytomas are the most common childhood brain tumours These tumours usually grow very slowly Howeverthey are often difficult to access by surgery and cannot be completely removedwhich means that they can recur In previous workresearchers led by Professor Dr Stefan Pfister and Dr David Jones had already discovered characteristic mutations in a major proportion of pilocytic astrocytomas All of the changes involved a key cellular signalling pathway known as the MAPK signalling cascade MAPK is an abbreviation for ‘mitogen-activated protein kinase’ This signalling pathway comprises a cascade of phosphate group additions (phosphorylation) from one protein to the next a universal method used by cells to transfer messages to the nucleus MAPK signalling regulates numerous basic biological processes such as embryonic development and differentiation and the growth and death of cells “A couple of years agowe had already hypothesised that pilocytic astrocytomas generally arise from a defective activation of MAPK signalling” said Jonesfirst author of the study in journal Nature Genetics “Howeverin about one fifth of the cases we had not initially discovered these mutations In a whole-genome analysis of 96 tumours we have now discovered activating defects in three other genes involved in the MAPK signalling pathway that have not previously been described in astrocytoma” he said “Aside from MAPK mutationswe do not find any other frequent mutations that could promote cancer growth in the tumours This is a very clear indication that overactive MAPK signals are necessary for a pilocytic astrocytoma to develop” said study director Pfister “The most important conclusion from our results is that targeted agents for all pilocytic astrocytomas are potentially available to block an overactive MAPK signalling cascade at various points” said Pfister “We might thus in the future be able to also help children whose tumours are difficult to access by surgery” he said For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related News Rakesh Prajapati, “The government is currently examining all relevant papers before challenging the
