Understanding forest regrowth is crucial to predicting and mitigating environmental damage, and with over half of the word’s tropical forests currently recovering from human land
A team of researchers from University and Botanical Garden of Neuchâtel constructed a global map of honey exposure to a class of pesticides termed “neonics,” showing that 75% of all samples were contaminated with the pesticides.
Survival of the fittest isn’t the end of the story. New research by Yale scientists shows that weak species are able to grow with stronger species, and the presence of weak species may help ecosystems respond to climate change.
The more plastic we have, the bigger of an environmental problem we face. University of Nebraska-Lincoln Professor Yiqi Yang is discovering new polymers to create better biodegradable plastics.
Researchers have linked massive pits in the Arctic seafloor to the global thawing that occurred the end of the last glacial period: a discovery that may have potential implications for modern climate change.
