Melbourne | Published: November 15 2017 7:25 pm Scientists have discovered rare living specimens of stromatolites – the oldest evidence of life on Earth – deep within a remote protected World Heritage Area in Australia Top News Scientists have discovered rare living specimens of stromatolites – the oldest evidence of life on Earth – deep within a remote protected World Heritage Area in Australia Researchers including those from University of Tasmania in Australia made the discovery during a survey of peat-bound karstic wetlands – an unusual type of swamp which occurs only in peaty soils underlain by limestone and similar carbonate rocks This is an exciting discovery because living stromatolites were previously unknown from Tasmania said Bernadette Proemse from University of Tasmania “The ecosystem has developed around spring mounds where mineral-rich groundwater is forced to the surface by geological structures in underlying limestone rocks” said Proemse “The find has proved doubly interesting because closer examination revealed that these spring mounds were partly built of living stromatolites” he said “Stromatolites are laminated structures of micro-organisms which have created layers of minerals using elements dissolved in the water in which they live “Fossil stromatolites are the oldest evidence for life on Earth – they first appeared 37 billion years ago” said Proemse According to Roland Eberhard from Department of Primary Industries Parks Water and Environment (DPIPWE) stromatolites are rare because more advanced life forms such as aquatic snails feed on the micro-organisms required to form them “The discovery of living stromatolites in Tasmania is highly significant because stromatolites are rare globally and not previously known from Tasmania except as ancient fossils” Eberhard said DNA analysis indicates that the Tasmanian stromatolites are micro-organism communities which differ from all other known stromatolites The discovery provides clues why stromatolites thrived for millions of years but then virtually disappeared from all but a few exceptional places on Earth The researchers believe that the highly mineralised water flowing from spring mounds is a critical factor in the ability of the stromatolites to survive in the Tasmanian wilderness because it challenges other forms of life This became obvious when the researchers noticed that the mounds were littered with the shells of dead freshwater snails This is good for stromatolites because it means there are very few living snails to eat them These Tasmanian ‘living fossils’ are protected by the World Heritage Area and the sheer remoteness of the spring mounds researchers said For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Hina

The Indian Express had first reported about the govt’s plans to relax the norms Top News THE MAHARASHTRA government has diluted norms for the grant of additional buildable space to luxury hotels in Mumbai A rider that star-category hotels must have been constructed on a minimum plot area of 2500 square metres to avail the sop has been done away it Since 2009 the government has allowed a floor space index (FSI) of 35 for star-category hotel buildings in Mumbai to promote the hospitality sector FSI is the ratio of the buildable area to the total plot size An FSI of 35 means licence to build upto 35 times the plot size The then government had however restricted the benefit to hotels on over 2500 sq m plots On Tuesday the Devendra Fadnavis government lifted the rider making the additional buildable space norms applicable to all star-category hotels regardless of the plot size The cabinet gave the Fadnavis-led urban development department a nod to modify Mumbai’s Development Control regulations in this regard The government has ruled that the plot size won’t be considered for hotels proposing to limit the building space to an FSI of 3 Incidentally the department had initially sought the CM’s approval to implement the modification last November but the CMO had ruled that it should be placed before the cabinet along with other policy measures to “encourage tourism in the state” Incidentally Tuesday’s modification comes at a time when Mumbai’s new Development Plan (DP) has already been submitted to the state government for approval The new DP has proposed doing away with the special distinction made in the existing regulations for star-category hotel buildings while extending FSI benefits to all hotels BJP MLA Parag Alavani who had raised the demand with the CMO for relaxation in the minimum plot area condition however said: “The waiver was a longstanding demand of hotel owners The demand was justified and the government had been in the process of modifying the regulations…” Following the cabinet’s decision the CMO issued a press release stating that the decision had been taken to “encourage more investment in the hospitality sector and generate new employment” Hoteliers will also benefit from the relaxation of norms related to the width of fronting road and internal passages and the building height among others A three-star hotel in Vile Parle — built by Genesis Resorts Private Limited — might well be the one to benefit almost immediately As reported in The Indian Express previously the hotel was facing action for allegedly building excess areas Last June the BMC had declared that three floors in the hotel were irregular Civic chief Ajoy Mehta had ordered that “all additional areas in the hotel be sealed and marked on the floor plans as proposed to be demolished” The firm approached the UD department for permission to grant incentive FSI to regularise the violation but the proposal was grounded since the hotel’s plot size was 179933 sq m — not meeting the minimum area norm Madhukar Shetty chairman Genesis Resorts confirmed that his firm had been seeking such relaxation “The hotel has been ready for use for over two years But since the occupation has not been granted by the BMC there is no revenue generation On the other hand expenditure on housekeeping and maintenance of central air-conditioning has to be undertaken…” he said Stating that the changes introduced to the policy will benefit the sector to a certain extent Shetty however stressed that he had sustained losses during the past three years For all the latest
