  • The Australian crest-tailed mulgara, a tiny marsupial was long thought to be extinct, was found during recent scientific monitoring in Sturt National Park, New South Wales, Australia. The animal had not been seen or studied for over a century. “The Crest-tailed Mulgara was once widely distributed across sandy desert environments in inland Australia, but declined due to the effects of rabbits, cats, and foxes,” said UNSW scientist and Wild Deserts ecologist Dr. Rebecca West. http://aweofnature.com/2017/12/6086/

  • Kew scientists, in collaboration with researchers from Brazil and Canada, have recently published a description of a new tree species in Brazil, Siqueira, which grows to a whopping 40 metres with an estimated weight of up to 62 tonnes.


    Dinizia jueirana-facao grows in a narrowly restricted area of Atlantic forest in the Brazilian state of Espirito Santo. It is Critically Endangered – we know of only 25 of these trees in the whole world - a fact which helps to explain why such a majestic species has gone undiscovered and scientifically unnamed for so long.” https://phys.org/news/2017-12-tree-species-brazil-world-heaviest.html
