They can also be attractive greenspaces, which greatly enhance the appearance of our cityscape and provide havens for biodiversity.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The eight roundabouts are located at Kilmallock Road, Tipperary Road, Parkway, Greenpark, Clondrinagh, Loughmore in Raheen, Ballycummin and Roxboro.The designs are the work of local landscape architect Dave Ryan who has worked closely with Peter Cuthbert, an expert in the field of pollinator-friendly planting schemesThe unique designs are intended to reflect the character of their settings, with the more rural roundabouts incorporating wildflowers and native species, while more formal designs, based on pollinator-friendly perennials, have been chosen for the more urban locations.Limerick City and County Council is seeking expressions of interest from companies and organisations who would like to become partners in this project and sponsor the implementation of the planting schemes.Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Michael Sheehan said, “We are delighted with the quality of the final designs which will enhance the experience of both residents and visitors to Limerick and provide a great opportunity for local businesses to raise their profile while contributing to the public good.”Anne Goggin, co-ordinator of Limerick European Green Leaf Year said: “It is important that we lead by example and show that wildlife-friendly spaces can be hugely attractive. While all the designs are different, there is a consistent ethos running throughout which reflects the Council’s commitment to the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan and to making Limerick a more biodiversity-friendly city.”For more details about the scheme check the Briefing Document on Limerick.ie here or email [email protected] Expression of Interest form is contained in the Briefing Document.Completed forms should be returned to [email protected] by Thursday 9 July 2020.

Protoperidiniacean dinoflagellate cysts have been recovered from Upper Miocene sediments of Hole 1095, ODP Leg 178, drilled to the west of the Antarctic Peninsula. These cysts make up virtually the entire dinoflagellate cyst assemblages, and three new species are formally described herein as Selenopemphix bothrion sp. nov., Selenopemphix kepion sp. nov. and Selenopemphix minys sp. nov., together with one informal taxon and two species attributed to published taxa. The occurrence of Late Miocene protoperidiniacean-dominated assemblages in the vicinity of the Antarctic continent is of special interest. Their presence may indicate the initiation of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current and increased nutrient supply within the Southern Ocean as the Antarctic Divergence became established. A comparison with several other protoperidiniacean dinoflagellate assemblages of similar age in other parts of the world rovides some preliminary evidence for possible concomitant oceanographic change at this time.
