Tierversuche 2015: Zunahme wegen Verhaltensstudien

2015 wurden in der Schweiz 682 000 Tiere für Tierversuche eingesetzt. Das entspricht einem Anstieg um 12,5 % gegenüber dem Vorjahr. Der Grund dafür sind Verhaltensstudien an grossen Herden und Artenschutzprojekte. Bei zahlreichen Tierarten gab es hingegen einen leichten Rückgang der Versuche.

Climate Change: Monitoring of Swiss Glaciers Assured

The long-term systematic monitoring of Switzerland’s glaciers is now assured. The responsible actors from scientific institutes and the administration signed agreements governing the glacier monitoring in Bern today. As a result, 105 glaciers will be monitored in the long term. The related data for the fields of climate, water, natural hazards and the environment will be made available to a wide audience on an internet platform. The glaciers have been melting for decades due to climate warming, therefore their monitoring is very important.

First globally complete glacier inventory created

An international group of scientists – more than 70 scientists from 18 countries - have mapped all of the world’s glaciers. Glaciologists can now study with unprecedented accuracy the impacts of a changing climate on glaciers worldwide and determine their total extent and volume on a glacier-by-glacier basis. Overall, glaciers cover an area of about 730,000 km2 and have a volume of about 170,000 km3. Each of the nearly 200,000 glaciers in the new inventory is represented by a computer-readable outline, making precise modelling of glacier–climate interactions much easier.
