  • Research investigates impact of climate change on glacier-fed rivers in Peru
    [Publicat la: 21/03/2019]
    Remote communities in the Peruvian Andes, as well as communities downstream, depend on the water from melting glaciers and mountain ecosystems to provide them with food and power, and to support industry.
  • Mount Everest: Melting glaciers expose dead bodies
    [Publicat la: 21/03/2019]
    Expedition operators are concerned at the number of climbers' bodies that are becoming exposed on Mount Everest as its glaciers melt. Nearly 300 mountaineers have died on the peak since the first ascent attempt and two-thirds of bodies are thought still to be buried in the snow and ice.
  • Genetic diversity maps to help forests survive climate change
    [Publicat la: 21/03/2019]
    Forests have a special magic for many of us. Steeped in folklore and fantasy, they are places for enchantments, mythical creatures and outlaws. But if they are to survive into the future, they may also need a helping hand from science.

    [Publicat la: 21/03/2019]
    In a tiny home not far from the U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa, 80-year-old Aragash Boka finally rests from a long day's work carrying an awkward, heavy load. Boka lives and works in a corner of the world where, for the most part, fuelwood has remained important to daily life for centuries.

    [Publicat la: 19/03/2019]

  • Rogue waves occurring less but 'becoming more extreme
    [Publicat la: 21/03/2019]
    Rogue waves - huge swells that can appear from calm seas - are occurring less often but becoming more extreme, data from the US coast suggests. In the largest study of its kind, scientists analysed 20 years of observations from buoys situated along America's western seaboard.
  • Low-cost and energy efficient recording of biodiversity soundscapes
    [Publicat la: 21/03/2019]
    An international team of researchers has built a new sensor network that can monitor two crucial activities, namely biodiversity, or the variety of life, in a particular habitat or ecosystem, and identification of possible illegal activities such as logging or poaching in protected areas.
  • A mating war in diving beetles has stopped the evolution of species
    [Publicat la: 21/03/2019]
    In nature, male attempts to mate with females can be so extreme that they can harm the females. Such negative impacts of mating interactions have been suggested to promote the emergence of new species under some circumstances.

  • Caterpillars listen to voicemail by eating soil
    [Publicat la: 21/03/2019]
    Leaf-eating caterpillars greatly enrich their intestinal flora by eating soil. Even effects of plants that previously grew in that soil can be found back in bacteria and fungi in caterpillars. Researchers from the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) and Leiden University write about this discovery in Nature Communications.
  • Where do microplastics go in the oceans?
    [Publicat la: 21/03/2019]
    Where do tiny bits of plastic go when they are flushed out to sea?Previous research finds most plastic ends up in the subtropical ocean gyres circling the mid-latitudes of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. These rotating currents encircle large areas sometimes called "garbage patches" because they are the destination for so much persistent floating junk.
