shop ’til you drop

CITY people love to think of their areas as ‘village-y’. This brings a smile to the lips of country dwellers, whose idea of a village is rather different from Hackney or Highbury Fields. However, the truth is that some parts of the metropolis are more neighbourly than villages and have more things going on. Once, villagers would bond as bell-ringers, church-choir members or over a pint in the pub, but pubs have now closed or become gastro-pubs, serving food that regulars can’t afford, and church attendance has dwindled. Fewer children can go to a village school, depriving their parents of chat at the school gate. That leaves only the village shop to provide social glue and these have also closed at an alarming rate. Where they bravely stay open, against the drift…

separating food from the trees

SCIENTISTS are advocating the restoration of forests across the world to combat the climate emergency. Their call echoes the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, which champions dramatic changes in land usage to stop temperatures rising. Trees not only remove about a third of the carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere each year, but cool the Earth’s surface, reduce air pollution, support soil health and help regulate the water cycle. ‘Over the next decade or so, they can provide up to about a third of the cost-effective [climate] mitigation options we have available,’ advises American scientist Dr Katharine Mach. However, experts believe it’s possible to stop deforestation—which is occurring at a particularly dangerous rate in the Amazon—while continuing to supply food. Their suggestions include regulations that require imports to be deforestation-free,…

nature out of sync

CLIMATE change is causing a dangerous disconnection between the natural life cycles of plants and animals, according to a study published last week by Andrea Holzschuh and Sandra Kehrberger of Germany’s University of Würzburg. It reveals that pasque flowers (below) are responding to rising temperatures by flowering earlier each year, but the solitary bees that feed on them (Osmia cornuta and Osmia bicornis, above) are not emerging as early. The paper is based on fieldwork carried out in Germany, but similar discrepancies have also been observed in the UK, says Paul Hetherington of Buglife. Researchers from the University of East Anglia have found that higher temperatures have a different effect on the solitary miner bee Andrena nigroaenea and on the early spider orchid. Although warmer springs advance the cycle for both…

stowe’s sculpture returns

A BRONZE copy by Carbonneaux of the celebrated sculpture of Laocoön at the Vatican, which was installed in North Hall of Stowe House, Buckinghamshire, has been rediscovered. The bronze was sold in 1848 when the contents of Stowe were broken up. As part of its project to restore the North Hall, the Stowe House Preservation Trust has commissioned a copy by Rupert Harris Conservation studio. The replica, shown here, has now been installed in its early-19th-century position, which was illustrated in an engraving of a visit by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert to the house in 1845. The room has also been redecorated and re-floored, the most recent project in the long-running and exemplary work of the trust to restore the interiors of this outstanding house.
