International research led by Dr. Tom Van der Stocken of the VUB Biology Department examined 21st century changes in ocean-surface temperature, salinity, and density, across mangrove forests worldwide.
It was the appearance of sea urchins from their hiding spots, not an increase in the urchin population, which caused a spectacular outbreak of kelp-eating sea urchins along California’s Central Coast in 2014 that resulted in a large decline in the region’s kelp forests.

A new botanical survey of southwest Ohio found that invasive species introduced to the United States over the past century are crowding out many native plants.
Imagine a truck that only emits water vapor, produces its own electricity onboard and has a range of up to 1 000 km. It’s possible with fuel cells powered by hydrogen, and Volvo Trucks has started to test vehicles using this new technology.
The latest floods have drowned out memories of drought in many parts of Australia, but ecosystems and native species are still battling with the effects of drought and bushfire.
