Through the Naturalista MX platform, rangers and 'citizen scientists' helped researchers describe a new species that inhabits the Sierra Madre Oriental of Coahuila and Nuevo León. When Ivonne Garzón dissected the moth she was holding in her hands, she thought she had done something wrong. He couldn't find the parts that he usually sees in the reproductive system of these insects. The specimen, collected in the sierra shared by Coahuila and Nuevo León, was very different from what she knew.
The characteristic color of plants and vegetation on planet earth has to do with the photosynthesis process that is vital for their existence. It is well said that "green is life" and for plants it could not be more literal. The color of the leaves and stems of most plants has to do with colorophyllum, a molecule that allows plants to carry out photosynthesis and obtain energy. This substance is found inside cell organelles called chloroplasts.

Within the framework of World Women's Day, we want to share a fragment of the story of two paleontologists who have participated in important discoveries in Coahuila. This is part of our latest project, Giants in the Desert.
Although Lucía and Horsy are two fictional characters, there are scientists who have dedicated themselves to researching the intelligence of horses. Usually the animals that see themselves in the mirror react as if it were another individual: they do not recognize themselves. But in other cases, curiosity is aroused. Here the scientists apply what is called the “mark test”, something similar to what Lucía did with Horsy.
Volcanoes have always seemed to me very fascinating geological formations, and although I live in an area without volcanic activity, I have been fortunate to be close to some that are found in Mexico.
But, did you know that there are not only volcanoes on the earth's surface but also underwater volcanoes? That's right, these are found in the oceans and many are also active.
