Water is a growing source of global conflict. Here’s what we need to do

The most intensive drought ever recorded in Syria lasted from 2006 to 2011. Water scarcity hit households, businesses and infrastructure, while in the countryside crops failed, livestock died, and entire families moved to the country’s cities.

Extreme weather and global warming: Here’s what the UK can expect if emissions keep increasing

Culturally sensitive conservation approaches needed to protect Ethiopian church forests

Cardelús of Colgate University in Hamilton, NY, and colleagues. These findings appear in PLOS ONE.
