Il tasso del miele o ratele (Mellivora capensis)

Il tasso del miele è un mustelide. E’ un predatore instancabile in grado di cacciare anche serpenti velenosi. Ha una corporatura  robusta e muscolosa, che gli consente di confrontarsi con animali di taglie molto più grandi; può raggiungere il metro di lunghezza, alto circa 30 cm al garrese, con un peso di 13-15 kg.

Mellivora capensis

Mellivora capensis

  • Unique waste cleanup for rural areas developed
    A unique method has been developed to use microbes buried in pond sediment to power waste cleanup in rural areas. The first microbe-powered, self-sustaining wastewater treatment system could lead to an inexpensive and quick way to clean up waste from large farming operations and rural sewage treatment plants while reducing pollution.
  • Tree rings used to determine history of geological features, arroyos
    A new study uses tree rings to document arroyo evolution along the lower Rio Puerco and Chaco Wash in northern New Mexico, USA. By determining burial dates in tree rings from salt cedar and willow, investigators were able to precisely date arroyo sedimentary beds 30 cm thick or greater. They then combined this data with aerial imagery, LiDAR, longitudinal pr […]
  • New insights on an ancient plague could improve treatments for infections
    Dangerous new pathogens such as the Ebola virus invoke scary scenarios of deadly epidemics, but even ancient scourges such as the bubonic plague are still providing researchers with new insights on how the body responds to infections.
  • Small, fast, and crowded: Mammal traits amplify tick-borne illness
    In the U.S., some 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme disease annually. Thousands also suffer from babesiosis and anaplasmosis, tick-borne ailments that can occur alone or as co-infections with Lyme disease. In our struggle to manage the ever-growing list of tick-borne diseases, we need to understand which animals magnify human disease risk. New results s […]
  • Changes in coastal upwelling linked to temporary declines in marine ecosystem
    In findings of relevance to both conservationists and the fishing industry, new research links short-term reductions in growth and reproduction of marine animals off the California Coast to increasing variability in the strength of coastal upwelling currents -- currents which historically supply nutrients to the region's diverse ecosystem.
