Protected Areas Help Waterbirds Adapt to Climate Change

Climate change pushes species distribution areas northward. However, the expansion of species ranges is not self-evident due to e.g. habitat degradation and unsustainable harvesting caused by human ...

Genome Sequencing Shows Climate Barrier to Spread of Africanized Bees

Since the 1950s, 'Africanized' honeybees have spread north and south across the Americas until apparently coming to a halt in California and northern Argentina. Now genome sequencing of hundreds of ...
When temperatures go below a critical limit, sleeping lizards lose their grip and fall out of trees. But when researchers collected the scaled survivors of a record cold ...

Tropical Cyclones Moving Faster in Recent Decades

Tropical cyclones, regionally known as hurricanes or typhoons, have been moving across ocean basins faster since 1982, according to a new ...

Tiny Beetles a Bellwether of Ecological Disruption by Climate Change

New research shows that as species across the world adjust where they live in response to climate change, they will come into competition with other species that could hamper their ability to keep up ...

Driver of the Largest Mass Extinction in the History of the Earth Identified

252 million years ago, at the transition from the Permian to the Triassic epoch, most of the life forms existing on Earth became extinct. Using latest analytical methods and detailed model ...

Paper Recycling Must Be Powered by Renewables to Save Climate

The study found that greenhouse gas emissions would increase by 2050 if we recycled more paper, as current methods rely on fossil fuels and electricity from the ...

Deep Sea Coral Time Machines Reveal Ancient CO2 Burps

The fossilized remains of ancient deep-sea corals may act as time machines providing new insights into the effect the ocean has on rising CO2 ...

A Controllable Membrane to Pull Carbon Dioxide out of Exhaust Streams

A system developed by chemical engineers could provide a way of continuously removing carbon dioxide from a stream of waste gases, or even from the air. The key component is an electrochemically ...

Arctic Ocean Sediments Reveal Permafrost Thawing During Past Climate Warming

Sea floor sediments of the Arctic Ocean can reveal how permafrost responds to climate warming. Researchers have found evidence of past permafrost thawing during climate warming events at the end of ...

A pioneering technique which captures precisely how mountains bend to the will of raindrops has helped solve a long-standing scientific ...

Supercomputing Study Breaks Ground for Tree Mapping, Carbon Research

A new method for mapping the location and size of trees growing outside of forests helped scientists discover billions of trees in arid and semi-arid regions and lays the groundwork for more accurate ...

Are Climate Scientists Being Too Cautious When Linking Extreme Weather to Climate Change?

Climate science has focused on avoiding false alarms when linking extreme events to climate change. But it could learn from how weather forecasters warn the public of hazardous events to include a ...

Long-Term Data Show a Recent Acceleration in Chemical and Physical Changes in the Ocean

New research uses data from two sustained open-ocean hydrographic stations in the North Atlantic Ocean near Bermuda to demonstrate recent changes in ocean physics and chemistry since the 1980s. The ...

World's Greatest Mass Extinction Triggered Switch to Warm-Bloodedness

Mammals and birds today are warm-blooded, and this is often taken as the reason for their great ...

Energy System 2050: Solutions for the Energy Transition

To contribute to global climate protection, Germany has to rapidly and comprehensively minimize the use of fossil energy sources and to transform the energy system ...

Unprecedented Energy Use Since 1950 Has Transformed Humanity's Geologic Footprint

A new study makes clear the extraordinary speed and scale of increases in energy use, economic productivity and global population that have pushed the Earth towards a new geological epoch, known as ...

Fraction of Money Earmarked for COVID-19 Recovery Could Boost Climate Efforts

Global stimulus plans for economic recovery after the pandemic could easily cover climate-friendly policies, suggests a new ...

Researchers Find Diverse Communities Comprise Bacterial Mats Threatening Coral Reefs

A research team found that cyanobacterial mats threatening the health of coral reefs are more diverse and complex than scientists previously ...

Phosphate Polymer Forms a Cornerstone of Metabolic Control

In a changing climate, understanding how organisms respond to stress conditions is increasingly important. New work could enable scientists to engineer the metabolism of organisms to be more ...

Climate Change Likely Drove Early Human Species to Extinction, Modeling Study Suggests

Of the six or more different species of early humans, all belonging to the genus Homo, only we Homo sapiens have managed to survive. Now, a study combining climate modeling and the fossil record in ...

Artificial Cyanobacterial Biofilm Can Sustain Green Ethylene Production for Over a Month

Ethylene is one of the most important and widely used organic chemicals. A research group has designed a thin-layer artificial biofilm with embedded cyanobacterial cell factories which were ...
