Existing conservation efforts are insufficient to protect Antarctic ecosystems, and population declines are likely for 65% of the continent's plants and wildlife by the year 2100, according to a study by Jasmine Rachael Lee at the University of Queensland, Australia, and colleagues, publishing December 22 in the open access journal PLOS Biology.
Renewable energy generation between July and September (2022) was up 55.3% on the same period in 2021, The Scottish Government has revealed.
UK forests could store almost double the amount of carbon than previous calculations suggest, with consequences for our understanding of carbon stocks and humanity's response to climate change, according to a new study involving UCL researchers.
Scientists have discovered that the atmosphere contained far less CO2 than previously thought when forests emerged on our planet, the new study has important implications for understanding how land plants affect the climate.
"Robust" amendments to insurance law and international environmental law are needed to allow carbon capture, utilisation and storage to take place legally so the technology can be used in the fight against global warming, a new study says.
As nations meet this week in Montreal on efforts to address an unprecedented loss of biodiversity -; more than a million species are threatened with extinction -; a new study published in The Royal Society journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B points to the unique and vital role animals play in reforestation.
According to research reported on December 6th, 2022, in the open access journal PLOS Biology by Christopher Doropoulos and George Roff from CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere, Australia, a new, low-cost staining method permits visual tracking of coral larvae as they disperse and settle in coral reefs.
At Tel Aviv University and the Interuniversity Institute for Marine Sciences in Eilat, a new study analyzed the larvae development of corals and plastic additives on the reproductive process and other organisms discovered in Eilat’s coral reef.
Scientists estimate that northern peatlands contain one third of the Earth's soil carbon. This makes them important ecosystems for carbon storage, which keeps carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and controls climate change.
Zero deforestation commitments may inadvertently leave vital habitats in Latin America and Africa vulnerable to agricultural expansion, a new study has found.
