  • [01] Papandreou to meet with Sarkozy in Paris

    Prime minister George Papandreou is scheduled to meet with French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Paris on Sunday evening, following talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on Friday in the Greek premier's ongoing effort to secure the political support of Greece's EU partners. Papandreou will also meet with US President Barack Obama in Washington on Tuesday. After their meeting, scheduled for 6:00 p.m. (Paris time, 7:00 p.m. Athens time) Papandreou and Sarkozy will make joint statements to the press.

    In statements in Paris on the eve of his talks with Papandreou, Sarkozy stated his support for Greece, saying that the European Union must support Greece or risk destroying the euro.

    "If we created the euro, we cannot let a country that is in the eurozone fall. Otherwise, there was no point in creating the euro," Sarkozy stressed, adding: "We must support Greece because they are making an effort."

    [02] "Atlas of Nestos River Fish Fauna" drawn up by Greek and Bulgarian scientists

    The fish fauna of the Nestos River on the Greek-Bulgarian border is characterized by great biodiversity while the presence of many imported fish species (some of them from as far as Asia) on the Greek side of the river has negative consequences on local species and the region's overall ecological balance.

    The fish fauna of Nestos River was "mapped" by Greek and Bulgarian scientists and the common list formed has been included in a book titled "Atlas of River Nestos' Fish Fauna" translated into Greek, Bulgarian and English. The book launch took place on March 1, 2010 in Nea Peramos, near Kavala in northeast Greece.

    The joint list constitutes a useful tool in an effort to deal with the common problems faced by the fish populations on both sides of the river.

    River Nestos has undergone notable environmental changes as a result of human activities that have a negative effect on the fluvial ecosystem, degrade the habitats and alter qualitative and quantitatively characteristics of the fish fauna.

    Based on the study, a total of 20 fish species were recorded in the Greek side of the river, 11 of which are indigenous and the rest come from other ecosystems.

    Project coordinators were Dr. Panos Economidis, Emeritus Professor of Ichthyology in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) and Dr. Manos Koutrakis, Associate Researcher in N.AG.RE.F. - FRI from the Greek side as well as, Dr. Apostolos Apostolou and Dr. Millen Vassilev from the Institute of Zoology of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and Dr. Luchezar Pehlivanov from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences - Central Laboratory of General Ecology.
