Infected bee, SEM Featured 3 Mar 2004 Print

Infected bee, SEM

Diseased bee. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a honeybee (Apis mellifera) infected with mites (Varroa sp., not seen). The mites cause a disease called varroatosis, which often results in deformed wings. Honeybee mites feed on the body fluid of adult bees and their pupae. Female mites lay their eggs inside the wax brood cells that contain larvae. There, the mites can cause significant damage to a bee's development, as seen here. Infestation of a hive with mites can cause eventual destruction of the colony. Honeybees are economically important as pollinators of many of the world's crops


Venices MOSE flood barrier Featured 3 Mar 2004 Print

Venices MOSE flood barrier

Venice's MOSE flood barrier, computer model. The MOSE project is designed to protect Venice, Italy, from extreme floods. Six barriers, each measuring 5x20x30 metres, are seen here. A total of 79 will be built across the three inlets to the lagoon surrounding the island of Venice. The barriers are normally full of water and lie flat on the seabed. When the water level rises, air is pumped into the barriers, and they rise on hinges to form a row. They are designed to prevent floods up to 2 metres high. Such extreme floods, mainly due to winds and tides, are predicted to worsen due to global warming. Initial MOSE construction began in 2003, and the gates will be built from 2006-2011


Flood defences, Venice Featured 3 Mar 2004 Print

Flood defences, Venice

Flood defences, Venice. Construction work to raise the level of part of the historic city of Venice, Italy. This will protect against extreme floods, due to winds and tides, that are predicted to worsen because of global warming. The construction work is carefully planned to avoid altering the historic architecture that attracts tourists. This view looks from the eastern end of Venice, across the Canale di San Marco, to the San Giorgio Maggiore tower and beyond to the Chiesa della Salute domes. The construction is part of the MOSE flood defence project, the main part of which will be a set of moveable barriers across the sea inlets to Venice's lagoon. Photographed in 2003
