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

MOSE flood barrier construction, Venice Featured 3 Mar 2004 Print

MOSE flood barrier construction, Venice

MOSE flood barrier construction, Venice. The MOSE project is intended to protect the city of Venice, Italy, from extreme floods. This is part of the initial construction, involving the building of a stone reef outside each of the three inlets to the lagoon surrounding the island of Venice. This is the Malamocco inlet to the 550-square-kilometre lagoon. The Italian coast is seen on the horizon. Extreme flooding is predicted to worsen because of global warming. The main part of the MOSE project involves the construction of large moveable flaps anchored to the seabed, which will rise to block the inlets. The barriers will be built from 2006 to 2011. Photographed in 2003
