New scientific field looks at the big picture
Big data is changing the field of ecology. The shift is dramatic enough to warrant the creation of an entirely new field: macrosystems ecology.
Scientist begin painting macro-portrait of future bird / wetland scenarios under climate change
Using a mountain of satellite photographic data and decades of waterfowl counts, a Texas Tech University biologist said she and others have found a correlation with the amount of waterfowl and the amount of wetlands available ...
Research: It's more than just the science
When putting together a team of scientists to work on a problem, it makes sense to bring together the best and brightest in the field, right?
Researchers detail climate-change impacts in ecological journal
The coming century will bring many changes for natural systems and for the human societies that depend on them, as changing climate conditions ripple outward to changing rainfall patterns, soil nutrient cycles, species ranges, ...
Is a constructive conservation the last chance for biodiversity? Pragmatic approach to saving what can be saved
How can biodiversity be preserved in a world in which traditional ecosystems are increasingly being displaced by "man-made nature"? Biologists at the TU Darmstadt and ETH Zurich have developed a new concept for conservation ...
Bringing coral reefs back from the brink
Shocks caused by climate and seasonal change could be used to aid recovery of some of the world's badly-degraded coral reefs, an international team of scientists has proposed.
Thinking 'big' may not be best approach to saving large-river fish
Large-river specialist fishes—from giant species like paddlefish and blue catfish, to tiny crystal darters and silver chub—are in danger, but researchers say there is greater hope to save them if major tributaries identified ...
Road block: Fixing aquatic ecosystem connectivity doesn't end with dams
(Phys.org) —Over the last several years, state agencies and environmental nonprofit organizations have targeted dam removal as a way to quickly improve the health of aquatic ecosystems. Dams keep migratory fish from swimming ...
