Recent research published in PeerJ Life and Environment by Rebecca Helm et al. at Georgetown University illustrates why it is essential that assessment methods and examination of ecosystem effects of novel high seas activities account for ambiguity, using The Ocean Cleanup (TOC) as a model.
Increasing either temperature or nutrients can hurt ecosystems by destabilizing food webs, which are all of the interconnected food chains that make communities behave the way they do.
Space technology company ALE today announced its plans to launch the next SKY CANVAS satellite into orbit, a major step forward in the world’s first human-made shooting star project.
A team of international researchers led by Federico Baltar of the University of Vienna and José M González of the University of La Laguna has identified a previously unknown group of bacteria, called UBA868, as key players in the energy cycle of the deep ocean.
Mangrove forests are an important part of tropical and subtropical coastal zones because they offer a variety of goods and ecosystem services that are crucial to ecology. However, they are also threatened, disappearing, and degraded across the globe.
A study in Nature Ecology and Evolution, led by the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) and the University of Hawai'i (UH) at Manoa, reveals that a remarkable diversity of coastal marine invertebrates has successfully colonized the high seas.
A recent study carried out by forest scientists from Freiburg and the Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre in Frankfurt a. M. has revealed that climate change can significantly impact the ecosystem services provided by tropical forests in Central America, with potential economic costs.
The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, which runs from 2021 to 2030, is a rallying cry for the protection and revival of ecosystems for the benefit of people and nature, and it encourages the timely fulfillment of sustainable development goals (SDGs).
The seas surrounding the Arctic are important fisheries and ecological regions; they are also among the areas most affected by climate change.
If you’re an avid gardener, you may have considered peat moss — decomposed Sphagnum moss that helps retain moisture in soil — to enhance your home soil mixture.
