A 36-million-year cycle of marine biodiversity booms and busts matches the movements of plate tectonics, linking what happens deep below the ocean to what’s happening in it.
A long-term experiment in southwestern Greenland reveals that the presence of musk oxen and caribou helps stave off declines in Arctic tundra diversity brought on by climate change.
La exposición a pesticidas puede afectar la salud humana y de los ecosistemas. Una investigación reciente aplica modelos cartográficos en Ecuador, los cuales pueden ser exportados a otras escalas para limitar estos impactos adversos en otras regiones.
Pesticide exposures can impact human and ecosystem health, and new research uses a modeling approach applied to Ecuador that can be scaled and exported to limit negative impacts in other regions.
Amazon soils are usually low in the nutrients that plants covet, but harpy eagles can create local hot spots with their poop and prey.
Researchers tracked plankton through a changing climate over 8 million years. Now, that knowledge is helping scientists understand the coming effects of warming oceans.
A new study highlights the benefits of urban gardens for their human caretakers and local ecosystems.
Researchers examined the land use trade-offs that could come with protecting at-risk species. But some scientists question what should be prioritized.
Researchers set sail to the Great Barrier Reef to study how ring-shaped algae deposits formed and evolved, what feeds them, and the diversity of creatures that call them home.
Tropical forests play a critical role in supporting human well-being, food security, and the maintenance of biodiversity.
