A novel approach to geochemical measurements helps scientists reconstruct the past intensity of the methane seeps in the Arctic Ocean. Recent studies show that methane emissions fluctuated, strongly, in response to known periods of abrupt climate change at the end of the last glacial cycle.
(Human Frontier Science Program) HFSP raises the value of its fellowship awards granted to 65 young researchers who will challenge traditional thinking by investigating behavioural computation, genomics of fear memories, the dynamics of the blood stem cell niche, or building a new super-resolution microscope.
(University of Bath) An international team of scientists found that, like humans, female wild animals tend to live longer than males.
There’s no shortage of people facing extraordinary adversity to help us maintain some semblance of civilization in these pandemic times. There are the usual suspects — doctors, nurses, firefighters — who make courage under fire seem so routine. And then…
It’s getting warmer down at the bottom of the world. As the global climate heats up, some of the great ice sheets and glaciers in Antarctica are melting, a few of them rapidly. One, East Antarctica’s Denman glacier, has retreated nearly 3…
(Frontiers) The climate crisis means that an agricultural disaster comparable to the Dust Bowl of the Great Depression can’t be excluded in the long term. A new study forecasts that its effects would exhaust 94% of American wheat reserves, and echo throughout the global trade network to cause shortfalls around the world. These results demonstrate that today’s global food system is highly vulnerable to shocks.
(University of West Georgia) A new study by an international team of scientists has revealed the developmental and evolutionary mechanisms underlying the origin of a major phylum. The study investigates the questions of whether this pattern resulted from abundant ecological opportunity early in the history of life, which became dampened with competition through time, or from evolutionary shifts in growth and development that limit evolutionary innovation through time.
