TOPICS

Eco footprint
Can you explain the phrase "global footprint": how do you calculate it and is it actually useful in identifying an individual's impact on the planet?
New Scientist quiz
Lead International quiz
The Optimum Population Trust
Bio-regional.com
Kay's World Development

Cosmic dust
I've read that two million tons of cosmic dust filter down to the Earth's surface each year. This isn't a very large amount, but over three or four eons it would add up. Does this mean the Earth was smaller and does it help to explain why Roman ruins are found a metre and more below the surface, even in open fields?
BBC Wales story
Cardiff University
The Guardian
History of the Universe

Hands-on nature
Does legislation which sets out to protect our wildlife actually limit our understanding of it?
English Nature
Scottish Natural Heritage
Countryside Council for Wales

Population growth
We spoke to Dr Steven Sinding, director general, International Planned Parenthood Federation
The World Bank

The wren
Is the wren one of the most common birds in Britain. If so, why don't I see so many in my garden these days?
RSPB
