For Indian users only.
I am asking people for contribution towards Cauvery Calling campaign which is aiming to shift at least 30% of farmers in Cauvery river basin towards agro-forestry which will help farmers, soil health, and ground water level.

Entire project will be managed by eminent citizens such as retired Supreme Court Judge, ISRO chairman and such.

It takes just 42 Indian Rupees to plant one tree (which includes taking care of sapling and planting it in farmer's field). This campaign has backing of many countries and UNITED NATIONS.

Though you can donate directly, but I would like some of you to donate through the link below. It will help this one particular volunteer reach the pledged goal of 1000 trees. Volunteers or fund raisers DO NOT get anything from it, money goes directly to Campaign's account handled by above mentioned committee and audit report will be published.

www.ishaoutreach.org/en/cauvery-calling/campaigns/cauvery-calling-action-now-1429?action=2


Donating through above link will help a volunteer reach their personal goal of getting people to contribute 1000 trees.

Thanks in advance

Thank you based gupta

What if I only socialize my male puppy with female dogs, so it grows up to be super smooth around the ladies but aggressive with dudes? Is this a viable strategy for making a chad dog?

>The whole reason behind "birds are dinosaurs" but "pterosaurs are not dinosaurs, but flying reptile."
Dinosaurs are dinosaurs, pterosaurs are pterosaurs. The words "flying reptile" are in no way taxonomically valid and mean simply a reptile that is able to fly, and both birds and pterosaurs fit the criteria. If you said, for example, "flying tetrapod", bats would fit in too.
>Dinosaurs are split between avian dinosaur, including raptors and modern birds and non avian dinosaurs
"Non-avian dinosaur" is a paraphyletic term, it is only used to describe dinosaurs that are not in the Avialae clade. Sauropods and theropods are closer to avialans than to ornithischian dinos. It's not like the common ancestor of the whole Dinosauria clade split between Avialae and non-avian dinos right away.
>They don't include flying reptiles and marine reptiles like mosasaurs
Well, Dinosauria does include Avialae. But yeah it doesn't include Pterosauria or Mosasauridae (which are lizards).
>>

>The words "flying reptile" are in no way taxonomically valid and mean simply a reptile that is able to fly, and both birds and pterosaurs fit the criteria.
Would you then call a generic pingeon flying reptile? They are clearly not, the classic definition of vertebrate classes separate reptilia from aves.
>>
>>3116525
The Linnean classification does, but cladistics doesn't, since you can't take a species out of an ancestor's taxon (except genus and species). So yeah, birds are reptiles (they're in Dinosauria, therefore being in Archosauria and Reptilia), and all vertebrates are fish.
>>
>>3116540
Thanks for the clarification, I really appreciate it. We only learned about the traditional Linnean classification in high school and my biology is not up to date.
>>
It's really a problem that we have at least three different commonly used definitions of 'dinosaurs' and people tend to teach one without explaining the others so everyone gets confused all the time:
- The scientific one that's dinosauria,
- the pseudo-scientific one that's used for dinosauria but without birds and
- the popcultural one that's all extinct 'reptiles' that don't look too much like those that are still living so in that group there are pterosaurs, dinosaurs without birds, extinct marine reptiles that aren't turtles, some archosaurs and even 'pelicosaurs' that are more closely related to mammals.

I'm currently on holiday in Croatia and there have been several people advertising a dolphin watch expedition from 1830 until 2030. Considering that this is when the animals go to hunt and the amount of boats this company seems to have I'm concerned about the conservation standards. I have asked if there are regulations on how many boats can approach the animals at once but so far, no one has been able to tell me. Do any of you know about such laws in Croatia/can provide links?
