By studying the Chicxulub crater associated with the extinction of more than 75% of species then on Earth, researchers have begun to fill in a timeline for life’s rebound after the cataclysm.
A new information-processing framework helps researchers tease out the factors driving ecological shifts over short timescales.
Mountain Lakes and Global Change Workshop; Fort Collins, Colorado, 6–8 March 2017
Mangrove forests, salt marshes, seagrass beds, and the like are carbon storage treasure troves.
Ecologists find flaws in the approach to research that focuses on services ecosystems provide to humans. These flaws limit certain studies’ utility.
First TOMCAT Workshop; Southampton, UK, 12–14 September 2016
Rising temperatures that reduce snow cover leave soils vulnerable to frost, reducing silicon uptake by trees, with potential effects on downstream ecosystems.
A warm period unexpectedly boosted some species of fish larvae off the coast of Mexico.
Researchers revisit an old theory about the ethereal patterns of vegetation that form in some arid landscapes.
Freshwater ecosystems constitute a small fraction of our planet but play a disproportionately large and critical role in the global carbon cycle.
