Washington, August 22 ( ANI ): Multiple factors - some natural, like climate change; some human-made, including large-scale landscape alterations and shifts in trade routes - led to the 9th century collapse and abandonment of the Central Maya Lowlands
in the Yucatan Peninsula.
The UK's remaining pockets of lowland
heath are widely scattered in southern and southwestern England, East Anglia, Shropshire, Staffordshire, and parts of Wales.
The scientist said that the more genetically-diverse upland sheep such as the Welsh Mountain were harder to produce lambs from, meaning they had to be crossed with lowland
breeds, meaning they were more genetically rich.
Switchgrass is not native to California, and no information has been available about the adaptability of lowland
and upland ecotypes in California.
gorillas are endangered and Taronga Zoo is part of a global breeding program.
Upland farms fared little better - on average they lost 12p per pounds 1 on production costs of 160p/kg - while the average lowland
farm recovered 95% of their 155p/kg costs.
Upland farms had an average production cost of 160p/kg liveweight and recovered 88% of expenses, while the average lowland
farm had production costs totalling 155p/kg and recovered 95% of costs.
Not to be confused with Western Lowland
Gorillas, which are thriving in significant numbers in neighboring Congo (a recent census counted 125,000), today fewer than 5,000 Eastern Lowland
Gorillas are estimated to remain in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), formerly known as Zaire.
In England, 75% of the lowland
heath present in 1800 has been destroyed.
Scientists recently stumbled on a rare find: scores of western lowland
gorillas hidden in the isolated forests of the Republic of the Congo in Africa.
