Dragon's Blood trees, known locally as Dam al-Akhawain, or blood of the two brothers, are seen on Socotra island March 27, 2008. Prized for its red medicinal sap, the Dragon's Blood is the most striking of 900 plant species on the Socotra islands in the Arabian Sea, 380 km (238 miles) south of mainland Yemen and 80 km west of the Horn of Africa. Socotra islands, which harbour many unique species of birds and plants, may gain UNESCO recognition in July as a world natural heritage site. Picture taken on March 27, 2008.

Farmer John Ive inspects a dam on his property at Dicks Creek, located 35 kilometres (22 miles) northwest of Canberra, that has been effected by blue-green algae, also known also as Cyanobacteria, June 4, 2007. Potentially lethal to all animals, the algae thrives on a combination of nutrients, light, warmth and calm conditions, which are all factors common to lakes, reservoirs and farm dams. Many inland water ecosystems in Australia face an enormous threat from the presence of the blue-green algae. As the surface scum begins to die and decompose, the toxins are released and the oxygen supplies on which vegetation, fish and other water life depend, are depleted.

A gumboot sits atop a fencepost on the site of the old town of Adaminaby as it re-emerges out of Lake Eucumbene, located 150 km (93 miles) south of the Australian capital Canberra June 5, 2007. Drowned 50 years ago for progress and the promise of water without limit, the town known as Old Adaminaby is having an odd renaissance as a looters' heaven and centrepiece of Australia's desiccating climate. As the town re-surfaces from the vanishing waters of one of the country's largest man-made lakes, souvenir hunters have arrived for the relics laid bare by the worst drought on record.

The Brazilian government announced the latest data on deforestation of the Amazon Basin, with a total of 26,130 square km (10,089 square miles) of rainforest destroyed, equivalent to more than nine football fields every minute, during the 12-month period ending in August, 2004.

A parched pond is seen in Santiponce, southern Spain January 19, 2006. Cloudless skies over much of Spain on Friday may cheer tourists and hikers ahead of the weekend, but farmers are deeply concerned as the country faces the second year of what could be a prolonged drought. Rain in recent weeks, even if way below the historical average for the month, has been enough to moisten the soil for sowing winter wheat and barley, which need no irrigation.
