Roller Coaster migratory flights of geese give unique insights into bird physiology and biomechanics at high altitudes.
Tides stir up deep Atlantic heat in the Arctic Ocean
Researchers have identified how warm Atlantic water that is flowing deep into the Arctic Ocean is mixing with colder waters above to contribute to sea-ice loss in the Arctic. The results, published this week in the journal ...
'State of nature' important in determining the impact of climate change
Current models of how vegetation will react to climate change do not consider the state of the vegetation - whether it is mature and stable, or already responding to some disturbance event.
Waste-biogas is at least ten times more effective than crop-biogas at reducing greenhouse gas emissions
In a paper just released in the leading bioenergy journal Global Change Biology Bioenergy, researchers from Bangor University and the Thünen Institute in Germany conclude that crop-biogas and liquid biofuels are at best ...

Rocky platforms dissipating wave energy – a new option for coastal defence?
Communities across Wales are coming to terms with the very real threat of coastal flooding as the Welsh Government announces that as many as 48 areas have been identified where coastal defences will not be maintained in the ...
What happened to 'Food Miles?'
Some years ago we were being advised to buy UK-grown fresh produce to avoid the 'food miles' associated with importing air-freighted fruit and vegetables due to concerns over how this was contributing to the release of CO2 ...
How the snake got its venom
The venom of advanced snakes is a mixture of dozens of different proteins and is an example of an evolutionary innovation – a novel trait that has arisen in a particular animal group and which has contributed to their success. ...
