Novel Framework to Address Uncertainty in Water Management

IIASA researchers have developed a general decision-making framework to support policy decisions on the management of water resources, which, for the first time, explicitly takes into account the associated uncertainties. Reliable access to clean water is one of the key aspects addressed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In fact, most of the SDGs […]

Researchers Develop New Approach to Conserving Tree Species

Globally, forest trees are increasingly at risk from habitat destruction, pests and disease, and a changing climate. But the guidelines for effective preservation of a tree species’ genetic diversity and adaptive potential have been limited to simple mathematical equations for crop collections from the 1970s, or best guesses based on intuitions. Globally, forest trees are […]

Wetlands are key for accurate greenhouse gas measurements in the Arctic

The Arctic is rapidly warming, with stronger effects than observed elsewhere in the world. The Arctic regions are particularly important with respect to climate change, as permafrost soils store huge amounts of the Earth’s soil carbon (C). Warming of Arctic soils and thawing of permafrost can have substantial consequences for the global climate, as the […]

Coral Bleaching Increases Disease Risk in Threatened Species

Bleaching events caused by rising water temperatures could increase mortality among a coral species already threatened by disease, says new research by Mote Marine Laboratory and Penn State, US, published in eLife. The study on the species Acropora cervicornis, known as the staghorn coral, emphasizes the need for maintaining genetic diversity while at the same […]

Change Your Diet to Save Both Water and Your Health

Shifting to a healthy diet is not only good for us, but it also saves a lot of precious fresh water, according to a JRC study. Compared to existing diets, the water required to produce our food could be reduced by between: 11% and 35% for healthy diets containing meat, 33% and 55% for healthy […]

Aquafarmers on the Front Lines

Many of the world’s future farmers will likely be farming oceans, as aquaculture – the cultivation of fish and other aquatic species – continues its expansion as the fastest growing food sector. New research shows that in order for this next generation of farmers to thrive, there is an urgent need to prepare them for […]

Water voles returning to national park in west country after 30 years

One of the most beloved and endangered riverine creatures is returning to a west country national park where it has been extinct for more than three decades. Over the next few days 150 water voles will be released at six locations in the Aller river on the Holnicote Estate on Exmoor in Somerset. Once regularly […]

Kavanaugh’s views on EPA’s climate authority are dangerous and wrong

Donald Trump’s latest Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh accepts that humans are causing global warming and we need to take action to stop it. The problem is that he doesn’t trust the experts at EPA to do so and wants to erode their authority to regulate carbon pollution. Chevron is the key When discussing Chevron […]

Low-Severity Wildfires Impact Soils More Than Previously Believed

Low-severity wildland fires and prescribed burns have long been presumed by scientists and resource managers to be harmless to soils, but this may not be the case, new research shows.
